I am always myself. So if you're looking for a crazy adventurous photographer that might throw a cuss word out there every once in a while due to excitement and would rather meet with you at a brewery than a coffees shop then I'm your girl!
I'm a workaholic. I never sleep, But I love every second of it. As I'm writing this it is currently 3am and I'm wide awake. I'm obsessed with my job and I'm ok with it! So if you can;t sleep and want someone to chat with I will most likely be awake
I recently bought a house in the lovely town of Fort Collins in Colorado and am slowly realizing that being a homeowner is EXPENSIVE and I will never run out of DIY projects.
I might be a little biased but I have the most perfect fur baby in the world! His name is Miller(yes, named after the beer) and he is a purebred American Leopard Hound.
There is so much to say yet so little space! 10 years ago I was working nights nursing at a hospital in the emergency room while going to surgical school during the day. Apparently my 19 year old brain thought I wasn't busy enough so I started photography. It slowly took over my life and my passion for it grew larger than my nursing career so I took a huge jump and left the medical field. It was by far one of the best choices my young self has ever made!
I am self taught with everything I know other than the help of YouTube every once in a while. lol . I am an adrenaline junky that cries at sunsets and becomes best friends with my clients. If you like Harry Potter and sarcasm you best believe I will be sending you memes all the time just for shits and giggles.
My style is what you'd call journalistic and true to color with a small obsession with warm golden sun flares. I don't "pose" you. I give you prompts and actions to do that will bring out those natural smiles and laughs that you see on your significant other during your every day life. I make you not only remember the first kiss that you both shared but I bring you back to that moment and make you feel that sensation all over again. You won't just look at your completed gallery and reminisce on how much fun it was but you will feel the emotions that you had over and over again.
I am not alone! I have an amazing team of photographers and videographers that I trust with my life! We are those photographers and videographers that will show up to the photoshoot with a celebratory bottle of champagne or some beers and chug it with you at the end of your session. We are you personal hype people and make sure the party never dies and get you stoked beyond words. We all can't wait to be your photographers!
WORLD WIDE! Every time I say that I think of movie Step-Brothers. And I know I'm not the only one! lol. Yup..you totally just quoted that line in your head. Travel is included in some packages that I have. If it is not the travel fees depend on the location and we will go over details during our first photographer/client meeting
It depends on what package you get but it will be anywhere from a minimum of 250-600 images or more! All lighting, backgrounds, and color correction will be done to your images. YES, B&W(black and white) is included. Black and Whites will be chosen by the photographer but if there is any image where you're like "Holy crap I want this in black and white!", I gotchu'. In the photo delivery email will be directions on how to tell me that you'd like it B&W.
This one is sooo important when choosing an elopement photographer! YES we will help you find a location as well as work with you on a timeline for best lighting. We will also talk about the best time to be at that location. People usually think all photoshoot should be taking during sunset. Although that is true about 70% of the time, a few locations are done during sunrise. for example...in Yosemite...Glacier point should be done during sunrise because the sun comes over Half Dome with such beauty that it creates flawless sunrays during your early morning photos. While at Taft Point your images should be take during sunset so the sun makes this orangey/golden glow throughout the valley.
You will be receiving your images on an online downloadable gallery. The photos can be downloaded via phone, tablet or desktop and the photos will be in high resolution. Instruction on how to download and write noted on your images will be in the delivery email. I usually will have your images done within 4-6 weeks unless it is busy wedding season(spring/fall). If it happens for whatever reason to take longer than that I will get in contact with you ASAP!
Making people laugh and getting to witness the milestones in their lives is something remarkable. I'm the person that documents the day you say yes, the day you say I do, the day you announce your expecting a little one, your babies first breathe, your first family photos and sometimes your last family photos. Photos that you can hang in your home to show and tell stories about, photos that you'll pass down to your kids and photos you'll look at and they will put you on the brink of crying because the memories are so dear to your heart. I put your memories into physical objects.
Yes. I have a one million dollar policy for me, my equipment and everyone on my team.
I do thing a little differently when it comes to shot list. I feel list a shot list takes away from the creativity of the day. Instead of a shot list I recommend creating a Pinterest board for inspiration and linking me to it. I would also like to meet with you at your venue and discuss exactly what you're wanting so we both are on the same page and have a game plan on your wedding day. One thing I will ask from you is a list of names or parties that you'd like your formal family photos with.
