I've been a photographer for 9 years and I absolutely love working with kick ass couples that are as obsessed with the mountains as I am.

I live in Ouray, Colorado and I don't think there is any place more beautiful or charming in the entire world. I consider the San Juan Mountains of Ouray, Silverton, Ridgway, and Telluride to be my big backyard and I'd love to take you out in it. 

I wasn't kidding when I said, "my super power is making people feel comfortable and relaxed." I will help you forget the stress of the day and we'll have a blast. 

I have five children, a fantastic husband, and a big furry dog. My relationships with others are the most important thing to me and I look forward to getting to know you while we play in the mountains!

Hi! I am thrilled that you're here and I want to help you have the most amazing photography experience!

I spend most of my free time exploring the mountains of Ouray, and the nearby areas. I can't turn off my brain while I'm out. I'm constantly looking for new epic spots to take my couples for their portraits or elopements. I literally live closer than anyone else to some of the coolest spots in the area for photos. I'd love to help you find the perfect spot for your day!

I won't miss a moment of your day! My years of photographing the NBA Thunder basketball team trained me to work in wildly fast paced environments and to always get those crystal clear shots no matter how spontaneous! It also means I'm ready for whatever your day may throw at us, whether it's weather, a change of schedule, or a wacky family member... I'm ready, baby.

I'll Be Your

If you're looking at one of our packages that includes additional coverage of your day. You'll be getting to know my husband, Cole. 

Cole is my second shooter and videographer. Not only does he have a great eye for detail, but he has a literal different perspective, because he's taller than me. Ha Ha! 

He is the chillest guy you'll ever meet. As the strong silent type, he likes to be the shadow catching the epic moments of your day from behind the scenes. 

If you're paying attention, you might catch one of his stealthy hilarious jokes.
