Welcome Friends!

With a little bit of city girl mixed with mountain charm, I split my time serving the Rocky Mountains, Denver, Vail Valley, and southern Colorado markets…and I am always able to be persuaded to explore the great beyond. My goal is to create an experience and take images that make you smile and remember exactly what that moment is all about.

Wedding Bells & Snow Boots


bride & groom on gate with bride wearing snowboots

This elopement couple makes me smile. The morning of their elopement in South Fork, Colorado we were chatting about their itinerary plans over coffee and as a shoe girl, I excitedly asked about her shoes. I am all about high heels and love seeing the variety of beautiful shoes that float through my wedding world. Give me all your sparkles, fancy feet and strapy shoes!

This bride described her navy heels with sparkles as her “something blue” and I was already starting to style them in my mind for pictures later. I then proceeded to ask about her “other shoes.” This was a January elopement in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado and South Fork had just had its own private snowstorm the day before, something other than picturesque high heels were going to be needed. I saw her eyes get big as I inquired about her snow boots plans and what she was planning to tromp around the property during wedding photos. Her eyes stayed big.

Wrapping up our coffee date, I asked what was next in their morning plans. They giggled as they responded, “Shopping for snow boots!” I laughed as they returned an hour later from a local sports store and she proudly held up her find. This shot on the gate is one of my favorites of the day. Because of her stellar shopping skills we tromped all over and were able to get beautiful wedding photos…with warm feet!
