My very favorite part of this job is getting to be in the presence of radiant happiness. I’ve always been a little bit too empathetic…I absorb the feelings of those around me whether I want to or not. But on days like this one…days like Laura and Bill’s wedding day, the feeling of being in […]
We had the best day ever with Kiera and Lethon, during their gorgeous mountain elopement! Kiera was a true superwoman, completing her nursing finals and then jumping right into planning the details of her special day! I joked that I was truly safe with this amazing bride and groom, as they are both in the […]
Lisa and Brian were wedding guests at the Golden Horseshoe Inn waaaay back in 2014. Somewhere in the back of their minds, they tucked us away as a sweet spot to renew their vows when the time came to celebrate a milestone anniversary. And luckily for us, their beautiful 10 year anniversary vow renewal ceremony […]
One of the unexpected gifts of the current pandemic has been the gift of more time! I just love photographing engagement sessions, but my busy wedding schedule means they can be really hard to fit in. Which is why I had just the best time ever roaming through the mountains with Allison and Vince. A […]
Lizzy and Coburn’s beautiful wedding day was preceded by many twists and turns thanks to the pandemic. The large wedding they had lovingly planned turned into an intimate day for just the two of them and a few very close family members and loved ones. All those who are near and dear to Lizzy and […]
Maybe it’s because I’ve missed being with other people. Maybe it’s because we couldn’t have ordered up a more perfect summer afternoon if we had tried. Maybe it’s because small weddings are my favorite. But I think it’s mostly because we got to spend the day with some genuinely wonderful people. Daron and Paul are […]
Photos are my favorite way to freeze a moment in time…It passes so quickly, doesn’t it, that rascal Time. Adorable babies change every day, and suddenly they are walking, weaving and unsteady, straight into your waiting arms. And then, in the blink of an eye, they are teenagers walking out the door, confident and excited, […]
There is something so special about uncovering and hanging up a bridal gown in the dressing room…it makes it really start to feel like a wedding day! Everyone ooohs and ahhs over the dress and is able to take a moment to truly appreciate all the thought and love and planning that has gone into […]
Dana and Glenn shared a very special wedding day, 20 years in the making! This sweet couple are both talented artists who were joined by their close family for a private wedding ceremony at the Golden Horseshoe Inn. We enjoyed picture perfect weather, and a beautiful ceremony where Glenn couldn’t wait to say “I Do”, […]
Karsen and Chris were just as sweet as the candy buffet they served at their wedding! They are such a young and beautiful couple and I know life will have many wonderful adventures ahead for them! Karsen picked the perfect early fall wedding palette of Champagne and Eggplant. She used an amazing assortment of […]

Our beautiful Bride Carmen, and her handsome Groom Manuel put so much trust into us, and chose us to host their wedding day from a distance, meeting us for the first time on their wedding day! We loved this easy going and charming couple from the moment they stepped through the door (and as if […]
We loved every moment of Janet and Jack’s intimate wedding celebration! Our Bride and Groom were joined by their children for a private wedding ceremony followed by cupcakes, sparkling apple cider and a mountain top adventure (if you are wondering how to scale rocks in high heels – Janet is the person to go to!!!) […]
I was so excited for our July 2016 couple Liz and Allen, when they contacted me to let me know they were expecting (!) and to ask if I would shoot their maternity photos. I already knew that I adored this sweet couple, and absolutely loved shooting their wedding photos last year – you can […]
Our gorgeous bride Bree was SO ORGANIZED, she made our jobs so easy!!!! We LOVED working with her and her handsome groom Brad to plan their special day. Bree is bright and cheery, and so it only made sense that her colors were too – a vibrant mix of turquoise and purple, with rustic accents […]
Spending time with Amanda and Joey, felt like a day spent hanging out with the cool kids 🙂 Our amazing Bride and Groom planned a weekend that was perfectly them – full of adventures and their own personal brand of awesome!
