I'm based in the beautiful state of Utah! I've lived here most of my life & also lived in Colorado for almost 5 years! I'm a huge mountain lover so both states have my heart!
I married my very best friend this year in the mountains which fits us SO well!! I love anything & everything outdoors!! So if you want an adventure I'm your girl!!! I'm a lover of pine trees, overcast weather, hot coco year round (it's just that good), good books, true crime podcasts, The Bachelorette & LOVE!! When it comes to personality I'm a yellow & a major BLUE. I feel so much which is why I LOVE love!!
I've been doing weddings full time for 4 years now but I've had a camera since I was 8 years old so it's always been my greatest passion!! Being a traveling wedding photographer is my literal dream job & there is nothing else I'd rather do in this life!!
When you book me you aren't just getting pretty photos--you get ME. My whole heart goes into documenting one of the most important times of your life & telling your story. I promise we have FUN when shooting & afterwards I'll be your friend for life!!
A photograph is pure magic
I truly believe a photograph is pure magic. I mean think about it!! A camera can literally freeze a moment in time. Forever. I can't explain it in any other way than pure magic & my greatest passion.
This life is full of soul-stirring, heart pounding, & incredibly beautiful moments. I feel honored that I can give you tangible memories, moments & emotions to hold onto forever. I feel honored that I get to capture love stories for a living in the most beautiful places. It makes my soul so incredibly happy & fulfilled!
Comfort is also SO important in order to capture real & raw emotions! I'm your friend from the beginning & make shooting fun & easy. I do all I can to make you guys feel at ease so we can truly focus on capturing your magic love story!
feelings & emotion inspire me. The Earth inspires me. Life itself inspires me.
I LOVE adventure. I love the mountains & the outdoors. I love showing how beautiful & grand this Earth is through my photos.
Emotions are inspiring to me. I do photography because it makes me FEEL something. It is my creative outlet & my greatest passion. Being able to document emotion & YOUR most valuable moments is an honor. Love is such a beautiful emotion that we get to feel & I want my photographs to help you relive that feeling of falling in love every time you look at them.
I'm also SO inspired by life in general. It is such a crazy, beautiful, emotional, incredible rollercoaster we ride. I'm inspired by the soul-stirring moments, the incredibly simple moments & everything in between. I'll give you tangible memories & moments of all kinds that you can hold onto forever.
Rain or shine I'm here for you
When you book me I'm 100% invested in YOU & telling your story!! Making sure your experience is fun & making sure you are taken care of is my top priority!! I'll do whatever I can to make your wedding day as stress free as possible!
I'll get all your special moments! You getting ready, first looks with your dad, with your mom, with your bridesmaids...whatever you need!! I look for those small moments to document as well because those are just as meaningful! Every moment is special on your wedding day no matter how small & I promise to document all of that for you!
I will direct all the photos, bring bobby pins if your veil keeps falling out, bring you drinks if you need, give you a piggy back ride over mud, laugh with you & feel with you. I'm your girl & will do whatever I can to help!!
a little more about me
One of my very favorite things (well a person lol) is my husband!! He's my very best friend & soul mate. I truly couldn't imagine my life without him! We got married this year during the crazy covid pandemic & I totally understand the VALUE your wedding photos have. When you find the one, every photo is so dang special. I promise to give you a million photos of you & your lover cause I understand how important they are!!
When I'm not shooting or obsessing over my hubby I'm hiking, reading a good book, or spending time with my family & friends. I LOVE chocolate, sushi, any kind of seafood, pink drinks from Starbucks & dogs haha. I also LOVE to travel holy cow. It makes me SO happy. There is no feeling quite like traveling & discovering new places. It's pure magic. Which is why I literally scream with excitement when I get to travel for weddings!! Two of my greatest passions mixed in to one!! I'm truly the luckiest girl to call this my job!!
That's a little more about me--your adventurous wedding photog!! I truly love connecting with other people & hearing people's stories. I hope you can truly feel how passionate I am about this job & how important you are to me when you book with me. Telling stories is an honor & documenting this life is an honor. If you're ready to book with me--shoot me an email!! I can't WAIT to meet you!!
