Jesus, above all
Hikes in the woods
Big waterfalls + trees
Wine + cider tasting
Camping + campfires
Genuine + kind people

“OUR ELOPEMENT EXPERIENCE WITH HER WAS PERFECT IN EVERY WAY. SHE WORKED HARD IN FINDING THE PERFECT SPOTS FOR OUR PICTURES, HELPING US BECOME LESS AWKWARD, AND TRULY GETTING TO KNOW US” – L+J, UTAH
I consider myself a boutique-type wedding photographer. I take on a very limited number of weddings per year in order to give you a top-notch experience. I do all the shooting. I do not use associate photographers in place of myself. You’re always going to get me! I do not take more than one wedding in a weekend. You’re investing in a one-of-a-kind premium service when you hire me. I’m already excited!
I’ll partner with you during the elopement planning process; use me as a resource. I have extensive location/venue lists for wedding spots around the USA and beyond. I pride myself on spending many hours location scouting/researching. Planning logistics and details does not intimidate me. Let me help you find the perfect area to get married outdoors, no matter where or what season.
“MY FIANCE AND I WERE PLANNING AN ALASKAN ELOPEMENT ON A WHIM AND SHE WAS A BIG HELP WITH PLANNING AND HELPING TO IRON OUT ALL THE SMALL DETAILS” – C+K, ALASKA
I personally edit every image you will receive in your gallery. I never outsource my editing. I think about longevity + timelessness when working on your images; natural/true-to-life colors, flattering skin tones, minimal distractions, etc. When you hire me, you know you’ll be getting my best work with details in mind. And that may mean waiting longer than other photographers. Some people want photos very quickly, and that’s okay. Just know that I pour myself into your images and do not take this work lightly, so that I can make the photos the best they can be.
