ARE WE A GOOD FIT?
We're going to spend a lot of time together, some of it in intimate vulnerable spaces, so it's important that we vibe well. You deserve the best photographer FOR YOU & I want us to be genuinely stoked to work with each other!
If the following sounds like you, let's grab a drink and talk about the photo magic we can create.
+ You're fired up to create work with me, and being part of the process excites you.
+ You're not committed to pinterest perfection. Wind blown hair and dirt on your clothes won't bother you.
+ You dig all sorts of images, moody, romantic, sweet, sexy, hilarious, as long as they show you and the people you love as your authentic selves.
+ You're not afraid to run, play, dance, be silly, and make out in front of me.
+ I may tell a dirty joke or drop some curse words to make you laugh, & you're ok with that.
+ You want me to capture you as naturally and creatively as possible, not be focused on ticking off a long shot list.
+ You want to carve out time on or before your wedding day to shoot epic portraits of you and your love.
+ Enjoying your wedding day is top priority. You intend to tear up the dance floor and eat all that delicious food you paid for.
+ You have spent time incorporating thoughtful details into your wedding that make the day a real expression of you.
WEDDING & ELOPEMENT PHOTOGRAPHY
Document your day or weekend with someone who will keep you laughing and feeling like yourselves. Most of the coverage is focused on candid, documentary style images, but we will make time to create stunning portraits of the two of you as well. Gut busting laughs, tender moments, and steamy make out sessions guaranteed! Want to spend more time together? Engagement and bridal sessions are also available.
Welcome to one of the most fun and empowering experiences you'll have as a woman: taking time, just for you, to perfectly capture your beauty and femininity in the form of sexy, intimate images. Similar to boudoir, but with a fine art slant.
families & Newborn
Looking for images that capture your family as you truly are? Let's spend an afternoon in your home or one of your favorite places to capture the chaos, laughter, and all that overflowing love.
Don't fit into one of the categories above but you want beautiful portraits? I love that. These are the other types of sessions I offer: maternity, couples (with or without fur babies), seniors, branding images, and head shots.
+ ARE YOU PROFESSIONALLY TRAINED?
Yes! In 2011 I went to photography school in a Missoula, Montana. Free time was spent floating the river or shopping at outdoor markets, and everyone stops for yellow lights. Since then I've photographed hundreds of weddings and nearly a thousand portrait sessions. I know how to handle bad lighting, broken gear, and even grumpy family members. Missoula will always be special to me because it was there that I learned to view the world through my lens.
+ WILL YOU HELP ME CHOOSE A LOCATION?
Definitely. I've been shooting for a long time and know what locations will photograph well, when the light will be best, and what seasonal changes to keep in mind. We will work together to choose a location that is both beautiful and reflects the look you want for your collection of images.
+ what should i wear to my portrait session?
The most important thing is that you wear clothes you are comfortable in and feel authentic to you. Other than that, I'm a big fan of neutral colors as they won't leave any color casts on your skin, will look timeless, and won't compete with your location or your cute faces. You want to look coordinated without matching and I love accessories like scarves and hats.
+ Is there a limit on number of locations or outfits?
No, but keep in mind that all time spent changing clothes or traveling between locations comes out of shooting time. To maximize your number of final images, I recommend one to two outfits and shooting at either one location, or two locations within a five minute drive from each other.
+ should i have professional hair & makeup done?
You don't have to, but I strongly encourage it. We all know how to do our hair and makeup for everyday life, but the camera does not see us the same way we see ourselves. Everything on camera is flat and muted. A professional beauty artist will know how to make you look camera ready while still looking like yourself. They will also help your hair photograph well and keep its style through your shoot. I have several recommendations for local artists.
+ DO YOU TRAVEL FOR SHOOTS?
Yes! I'm based in Utah but am traveling often all over the world. Check out my instagram for upcoming travel dates to book me when I'm in your area or inquire for travel rates so I can come to you.
