meet

I am a wedding photographer specializing in Denver, Colorado weddings and Destination weddings.

I am a firm believer in fairy tales & happily ever afters.

I’m obsessed with Grey’s Anatomy and may or may not watch the entire series at least twice a year on Netflix.

I’m a hopeless romantic, I tear up at almost every wedding I go to.

I’m a beach girl at heart. One day I'll live on an island, away from all these mountains & this snow!

If it sparkles, I want it. Doesn’t really matter what it is.

I speak fluent sarcasm.

I love to travel, it's my favorite thing to do! This may explain why I love destination weddings so much!

I married the love of my life on a beach in Mexico in November 2015. It was the best decision I've ever made.

I adore hearing people's love stories. Seriously, give me all the ooey-gooey details! And even more so, I’m thrilled to be able to capture those love stories in my photographs.

I am located in Denver, Colorado, but am available worldwide!

my why

My parents have an album from their wedding that I was obsessed with as a child. It has about 60 photos in it, covering their day from start to finish. But simply because of what wedding photography was in the 70’s, I was left wanting more. There are only a few quick glimpses into how my parents actually felt about each other on their wedding day. And it was never enough for me.

I wanted to see more than stiff photos of them looking uncomfortably at the camera. I wanted to know how they felt. Were they nervous before the ceremony? Did my dad cry when he saw my mom walking down the aisle? Which one of my uncles gave a funny toast during the reception? I wanted to be a part of every moment of the day that is the reason I exist.

I’ll never have that. I'll never be able to see the joy I know they felt when they got married. And it’s no one’s fault, just a product of what wedding photography was in the 1970’s. But it makes me sad, and my parents only remember so many details. After all, it’s just one day in a lifetime, and it goes by in the blink of an eye.

I want to give you what I never had. I want you to be able to relive every moment of your wedding day when you look back through your photos. I want your kids to know how much you loved each and know exactly how you felt because they can see it right in front of them. 

I want to give you, your children, and your grandchildren memories that will last throughout generations.
