About Me

I'm a hopeless romantic, a nerd at heart, from Colorado, who loves golden retriever puppies, ballroom dance, and nature. I'm obsessed with Harry Potter (book purist here) and I will 100%, hands down, beat you in Harry Potter trivia! My friends and family mean everything to me, and I'm all about finding the beauty in life.

I’ve loved photography ever since I was little. I love capturing beautiful moments, whether they be solo, with your partner, or with your friends and family. There’s a story behind every relationship (even the relationship you have with yourself) and I’m here for it! I’m here to capture what can’t be put into words.

Let's be friends!

Where are you based?

I am based in Utah County and Salt Lake County. I am also very open to traveling! Whether that's somewhere else in Utah, a completely different state, or a different country! Message me for more info (as some portrait pricing will change to reflect travel).

What kind of gear do you use?

I have a Canon 5D Mark IV, and I use a Sigma Art 50mm lens and Canon 85mm lens for most of my photos. I usually have a 24-70mm for weddings. (However, a lot of my portfolio started with a Canon Rebel T3i and Canon 85mm!)

What clothing should I wear for my photo session?

It definitely depends on what look/vibe you're going for! And when we schedule the shoot I will for sure be reaching out to figure out those specifics. In general though, I would stick with pastel or neutral colors and flowy fabrics. It's also always best to dress for the season. Honestly, whatever you feel most confident in!

What if I'm picky about my appearance?

I TOTALLY GET THAT. Please feel free to tell me what you want me to be aware of. I am happy to remove blemishes, acne, scars, etc. if you want me to! And I will pose you in the most flattering way possible.

For example, if you're self conscious about a certain wrinkle on your forehead, let me know and I will either find a way to make it less noticeable in the posing, or I will naturally edit it out in post processing. And please don't be shy about pointing any of those things out! We all want the best photos of ourselves. We all have a good side.

How long until I receive my images?

4 weeks maximum! I will probably be able to get them earlier depending on the season and my schedule, but never longer than 4 weeks.

How will I receive my images?

You'll receive a high-res digital gallery (over text or email) where you can print, download, or more with your images. You can also print your images anywhere if you prefer!
