and you deserve more than just pretty photos.

You don't want a photographer who will just show up and snap some photos. You want a photographer who cares about capturing your day - all of the big and small moments - in a way where it means something to you. If that sounds like what you've been tirelessly searching for, this page will help you confirm that you're in the right place.

We won't work off of a pre-planned shot list or force you into awkward poses (whew). Instead, you will be directed with movement and encouraged to connect with each other in a natural, effortless way by following meaningful, intentional prompts.

Some photographers are obtrusive and some are too reserved. With me, you'll be able to rest assured knowing I am aware of the balance with directing and stepping back to capture moments as they unfold. Everything will flow smoothly while also letting you take in all of the moments.

I promise to always be thinking about your vision and what's important to you. I believe in answering questions before you have them, providing you with resources galore, and helping take on some of the planning to create more of a stress-free experience for you!

01

From our very first hello, my goal is to help you and all of your favorite people feel special and ready to go! Having shot over 100 weddings, I will ensure everyone knows what's next at the start of the day!

02

I’ll be the chameleon you need me to be – inconspicuously lurking in the shadows, snapping candids, right in front, and rounding everyone up for group photos. I will be every bit of that during different moments throughout! 

03

I will be out there on the d-floor with you, capturing every stolen, cheeky glance, every wild dance move, the laughter, the tears, the joy. Rest assured the entire time I'm there, I'm there for you. I pour every ounce of my energy into every hour of your wedding day.

04

You can count on me to be a calming presence all while keeping us on track and allowing you to soak in the special moments. I’ll be weaving in and out to make sure I catch every candid moment that will make your heart flutter.

On Your wedding day

Photo editing + GIFs

where the images come to life

This is the most time extensive part of every wedding photographer's workflow. I'm sure you've heard horror stories about couples not receiving wedding photos for over 6 months. Hand on heart, your gallery will be delivered in the amount of time I have promised you.

While it does take over 9 hours to edit a gallery from start to finish, you can rest assured knowing that I am giving every image my undivided attention. That pesky break out? No more. Orange skin tones? Not in your wedding photos. Muted colors? Definitely not. It is of the utmost importance to deliver a timeless, true-to-color gallery.

Not only will you receive a gallery of images, but part of my editing process includes making you the GIFs we created on the day. I am so excited for you to see your images come to life in this unique way.

story book ALBUMS

Don't let your best day ever be stuck on a computer screen or a USB gathering dust. These albums are handmade from the highest quality materials and you can choose from the many customization options to craft your own personalized book with your favorite wedding photos.

I believe in the irreplaceable feeling of being able to hold all these precious moments in your hands, rather than just seeing it on a screen, and that's why in my most popular packages, there is an album credit included.

It is not just a coffee table book - your wedding album is a keepsake that will be passed down for generations. Just imagine cuddling up on the couch with a glass of wine reminiscing your day with your lover. Imagine showing your future children and grandchildren your young romance. That is priceless.

Your photos handmade into a story book to treasure for life.

“Then... THE PHOTOS. We were awestruck. They're beautiful, fun, intimate, and they perfectly portray the best day of our lives. I could write a novel, but my advice is to just book her and see for yourself!”

FAQ'S

Where are you based and do you travel?

I live in Denver, CO! I love the mountains, and I'm always down to travel to the place you feel most at home! So many photographers call themselves destination photographers, but they barely travel themselves. Travel is such an essential part of my life - always has been since I could hop on a plane or go on a roadtrip. To me, it's not about the destination or the portfolio experience, it's about the feeling souls get when they're engulfed in nature. I know how I feel when I'm in those places with my love, and travel is one big thing that inspires me, my creativity, and this business! It's exhilarating to witness and capture your love or your private vows in an epic location. See my current travel schedule here.

All of that being said, I only take on a limited amount of destination weddings and elopements per year so that I'm able to be fully present for every single client, so rest assured, you will get the highest level of care. Once these 5 spots for the year are taken, I don't accept any more, so if you're interested in having me as your photographer, I'd reach out sooner rather than later!

Can we see full wedding galleries?

You bet! I am so glad you asked. Knowing how your chosen photographer captures an entire wedding day will ensure you're not disappointed with how they capture and edit reception photos, indoor photos, and more. Visit my gallery link here and view any wedding galleries you'd like.

What do your travel fees include?

My travel pricing guides include all travel expenses associated based on the region of the country or the international destination. I include my travel to make it super easy for you. No crazy hidden fees or planning any of my travel here - you can leave it all to me to show up ready to rock on your big day!

Within the state of Colorado, I charge minimal travel fees beyond 60 miles of Denver for a one night stay and car travel. If your wedding or elopement is not local to Colorado, my travel expenses include a roundtrip flight, hotel stay for at least 2 nights, and a rental car for transportation. I am happy to come up with a custom travel quote for you if your celebration includes more than these general travel plans.

What if you've never been to our venue?

If I'm new to the venue you've chosen, it is included in every package for me to do all the research and guide you in selecting the best spots for photos, sharing your private vows, wedding party portraits, etc. Additionally, I always go to the venue either before your wedding or the day of a little early to scout it in person! You will never have to wonder if we know where we're going. I'm here to guide you so you can focus on what matters most! 

How many photos will I receive?

I typically deliver around 75-90 images per hour of shooting. Every day is unique so I don't put a minimum or maximum on your photos. It truly depends on the events you incorporate, the amount of coverage, and all of the moments that take place! I always deliver the best photos and I promise not to leave any special ones out. I have always said that I know which photos are my favorites, but you may love the ones completely opposite from me and that's what matters. So I leave it up to you to decide which photos you love most!

How will I receive my photos?

I send all photos to you through an online gallery that you're welcome to share with friends and family! For weddings and elopements, you can also expect to receive a package in the mail after your gallery delivery with a cute USB, any prints you've ordered, and a little thank you from me.

How long will it take to receive our photos?

It is of the utmost importance to me for you to have your photos back as soon as possible! I put a lot of love and care into perfecting each image and editing is never just a click-and-done kinda thing. I have a turnaround time for sessions of 4 weeks with a sneak peek within a few days from the session. For weddings and elopements, the turnaround time is 6-10 weeks depending on the season. I also send a sneak peek to you within a week after your wedding so you can post to the 'gram and enjoy right away with your fam! If you'd like your photos sooner than my turnaround time, you are welcome to purchase the rush fee listed above!

What if we're not comfortable in front of the camera?

Lucky for you, I hear this all the time and it is my job to help you feel comfortable! A majority of the couples you see all over my website and social media have never taken professional photos before so you can trust that I will help bring out the best in you.

Can we get adventurous photos on our wedding day?

If you are wanting to make time for this - 100% YES! If you will be having a traditional wedding, I would first consider the venue you're choosing and what your guests will do during this time. There can be a break between the ceremony and reception if that's what you desire! The beauty of your wedding day is that you can do whatever your hearts desire!

If you want adventurous photos but for whatever reason we won't be able to get them on your wedding day, let's do an adventure bridal session! This can be before or after the wedding, in your same wedding attire or something different. I have many couples that opt for this because they want the adventurous vibes without sacrificing any time with their guests and the traditions they love!

Do you have a payment plan?

Yes! Payments are automatically set up in my booking schedule. I require the $1500 non-refundable retainer to book your date, and beyond that we will split your payments into three additional installments. Just let me know on our discovery call or by email if there's a specific timeframe that will be best for your payments.

How do we know our photos are safe with you?

I have heard so many horror stories about photographers losing images - my friend's wedding included. I backup every single photo I take at 6 different places at once, all of these hosts being totally different. For example, I take photos on 2 cards while I'm shooting, I store all images on 2 hard drives, the cloud, and I keep the images on the original SD card in a fireproof safe until I have delivered the gallery to you! Losing your images from the most special day is not something I'm willing to leave up to chance, so I've got you here!

Are you vaccinated against COVID?

Yes I am! In fact, I was among the first to get the vaccine since I was previously in the medical field. I am happy to show you my vaccination card and discuss anything about the pandemic if it's something you're concerned about.

Do you have any vendors you recommend?

Yes! After booking, I will send you vendor recommendations tailored to your vision! Based on your location, I can send vendors for videography, planners, dresses, florals, catering, hair and makeup artists, rental companies, and more. I'm always connecting with people in the industry all around the world, so I continue adding to my recommendation list daily! When your day is decked out with the best people I know, it makes for really detailed photos that add so much to your entire wedding gallery!
