... your small-town, adventure enthusiast! I’m so glad you’re here!
What started as a fun way to connect with people while spending time outdoors has now become my obsession + full-time career. I’ve had the chance to photograph weddings and elopements all across the country, from the desert landscapes of Zion NP to the sandy beaches of Hawaii, & some incredible places in between! 

I grew up on a farm in the tiny desert town of Kanab, UT. Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon National Park, Lake Powell, and so many other beautiful landmarks are my backyard! Growing up in such epic landscapes have influenced every aspect of my photography style and intent.
I accurately fit the "oldest child", Type A personality stereotype and at the end of the day my goal is to bring smiles & peace to everyone around me. My love language is Words of Affirmation, so reviews & kind messages literally make my world spin :)

Want to know something funny? As a child I would wish I could wear a Go-Pro on my forehead just for the purpose of capturing my life's memories. From a young age I've had a passion for preserving moments- a passion that has only grown & shown it's importance as I've aged.

When you hire me, my life goal is to be your very own Go-Pro. I'm there for the celebratory hugs with grandma, your first mountain views as husband & wife, & every size of moment in between. God Blessed me with this talent & I've devoted every bit of my time & energy into my growth. 

Your memories are in my hands and that fact has me convinced that I have the most important job ever. It's as simple as a hand squeeze from a loved one in passing. It's as genuine as the youthful smile of a bride that will one day be shared amongst her grandkids as they ask, "wow grandma really looked like that?". It's as valuable as the photos that go in scrapbooks & on the walls of your home. 

To be honest- even in my own personal life, documenting memories is everything to me. My phone camera roll shamelessly has 50,000+ photos & videos and I can't delete a thing. Those are moments of a lifetime spent & treasures of voices & smiles that I cling to. Some of those photos are all I have left of loved ones. This passion & obsession works hand in hand with my professional life. 



just because :)
