Where are you located?

I currently call Fort Collins, CO home allowing me to serve the beautiful state of Colorado! Mountains, snow, 300+ days of sunshine… I may be biased but it’s the best state in the world.

BUT HECK YA I AM AVAILABLE TO TRAVEL. My passport is current and my bags can be packed in a split second to meet you on whatever soil your story takes root! Plus, I offer discounts for destination weddings and bucklet list locations — I blame my travel bug. So, my location can be anywhere you need me, whenever you need me there. I have the best job in the world!

Here’s where I am headed to next:

Glacier National Park (Montana, USA)

Punta Cana (Dominican Republic)

Bonneville Salt Flats (Utah, USA)

Sedona (Arizona, USA)

Puerto Vallarta (Mexico)

Cabo (Mexico)

Carmel (California, USA)

New York City (New York, USA)

What should I wear to my session?

I always want my client’s photos to reflect the truest versions of themselves, so my go to response to this question is that you always have the freedom to express yourself and get creative in what you wear for your session.

But! If you asked me for my opinion, I’d tell you something along the lines of…

Think timeless! What is in your closet that in 20 years you won’t look back and question your every motive in wearing/buying it. Your photos are no different - I want you to still be obsessing over them for years to come! Neutral colors are always a safe bet, but don’t be afraid to incorporate some color as well! Whites, tans, beiges, grays (light and dark), and light blues all photograph really well. Patterns can usually be distracting in photos, but like anything else in life - they can work in moderation. If you choose to wear patterns, think simple.

And hey boys, try to wear something that compliments your girl! These photos are going to last you a lifetime.

I have a more detailed outfit styling guide that I can share with you before your session if that would also help you out - just let me know!

What should I expect during my session?

This is one of the most frequently asked questions that I receive. And definitely one that I would be wondering too! Usually when this question gets asked, it’s along the lines of “I’ve never had professional photos taken before” or “I’m awkward/nervous in front of the camera” - and it’s my favorite one to answer because my answer is simply it doesn’t matter!

You aren’t going to be stiffly posed or be awkwardly standing in an uncomfortable position long enough to question what you’re supposed to do with your hands. Expect to laugh until it hurts, run around like weirdos and be reminded of the power and beauty of your love story or yourself. I will never mold you into something you’re not - I will give you the freedom to be the fullness of YOU because I believe that it’s in that place that beautiful imagery is born.

You’re going to walk away with hundreds of images that depict the fullness of you and your story. And hey, I promise you - you’re going to look i n c r e d i b l e.

What services do you offer?

When I first started my photography journey, I was happy to shoot literally anything! My heart for that hasn’t changed, but the reality of finding what makes my heart come alive the most became more apparent as I have grown.

My heart comes alive whenever I am behind my camera lens, but overtime I have found that my specialty is in all things WEDDINGS + COUPLES. From weddings, to elopements, to engagement sessions, adventurous couples sessions, in home, couples maternity sessions - alllll the things!

But, I also have such a special place in my heart for all of my seniors and their families!

As much as I want to, I have learned that you simply can’t do it all and finding what makes you come alive is absolutely crucial for your creativity and your business as a whole. But, I never ever want to limit myself - so, if you have something creative in mind, shoot me a message and let’s make it happen! I vowed to myself that I will never ever limit my creativity when it comes to my passion, being photography.

How can I expect to receive my photos?

So, your session was the BEST and now the anticipation to receive your gallery has quadrupled and you’re losing sleep in excitement. Okay, maybe I’m being dramatic.

BUT! You will receive all of your photos in an online, intuitive gallery system that I use called Pic-Time. (Psst, fellow photogs - if you’re not using Pic-Time, you’re missing out. Check out the system here!) In fact! Here’s a link to a recent engagement session gallery so you can get a feel for what it will be like. Click here!

From there, you will be able to view, favorite, and download the photos from your session. You will also have the option to print photos from your gallery which I highly recommend. Nothing better than PRINTS! (and when those prints go on your wall, I expect some photos of it.)

These galleries won’t last forever - so I highly recommend downloading them to a reliable outlet as soon as possible. Another rule of thumb is, as tempting as I know the ease and efficiency of screenshotting is, try to refrain from doing so. Downloading the photos is best to preserve the quality!

As always, if you have any questions or run into any trouble at all - I am always here.

specific gallery delivery times can be found inside of your guide!
