Why you should love your photographer...

On your wedding day you will be spending about 85-90% of your entire day with your photographer by your side. They will be guiding you through every step of the day! You want someone there you trust, who is organized, and who you can have fun with!

When you love your photographer and get along with them really well you can let your guard down around them. You can crack silly jokes and laugh and have fun! In doing so, you end up with not only amazing and genuine photos, but you'll have an even better experience!

When you've taken the time to get to know the person photographing you, they will know and understand your specific needs and wants. They will know the best way to capture you and bring out your best smiles, laughs, and natural emotions. Plus who doesn't love making new friends?!

Behind the Scenes: A Boulder, Colorado Engagement Session

March 16, 2020

I don’t know about you, but I LOVE being able to see behind-the-scenes, whether it’s bloopers of my favorite shows or movies or how others acheive what the amazing things they do. So I thought it would be fun to share all the behind-the-scenes that were captured during our time at this amazing Boulder, Colorado engagement session!

After a bit of instruction, my amazing assistant, Tiffany, was able to capture these images throughout our day. She has been such an asset assisting me during wedding days. I will never attempt another wedding day without her! Tiffany hasn’t had much experience behind the camera so just for fun she tried it out during our session here and I think she’s a natural! I may very well have a future second shooter in the making!

Incredible Day, Bloopers and All!

This session was nothing short of incredible! We literally shot ALL day – three locations, three outfits, and lots of breathtaking views. We figured if we were flying out solely for this session we were going to take advantage of our time as much as possible! I was just in awe all day of not only this place, but with these two super sweet souls. It was the most incredible day. Even when I wasn’t paying attention while backing up for a shot and tripped, landing right on my butt! Seriously though, what photographer hasn’t tripped, fallen, or landed in a bush from time to time? We are just super dedicated to getting the shot! Haha!

It was cold!

It was chilly and super windy that day in Colorado but Zach and Weslie heated things up with their super sweet cuddles. I absolutely adore these two and I can’t wait for their wedding day! I love looking back at these images during this Boulder, Colorado engagement session and seeing how the shot was created, how I serve my couples, help guide and direct them, and just plain have fun with them!

Whisper as many breakfast cereals as tickishly as you can in her ear! 
Sometimes you gotta get a little close and show them how it’s done! Building trust and relationship with my clients allows me to jump into sessions and weddings like a true friend. Someone they can fully allow to guide them and relax around, giving them beautiful images that reveal their true selves. I love so much that Zach and Weslie were so on board and easy going with everything we did!
Sometimes you gotta get low to get that angle!
Shooting through the tree branches to capture this gorgeous shot! 
Sometimes your client is awesome enough to fix YOUR hair during the session!
There’s Tiffany!
Don’t mind me, I’ll just be here hanging on the side of a cliff.
Oh why hello random puppy!! Where did you come from?
This is us!! When you’re in such a gorgeous place you have to take photos of yourself too! Haha!
Oh another cliffside, don’t mind if I do! They seem to get the BEST shots! 
Ohh what a great angle! I guess I’m a bit of a dare devil. Let’s find the highest and most narrow point of the mountain and stand on it! Haha! 
I will always be there to fluff and fix your hair for you at any point of the session! Don’t you worry about those fly aways! 
I just love these two!! Tiffany, you’re the best! Thank you for such amazing behind-the-scenes photos!
