Chances are that you and your partner will spend more time with your photographer than anyone else on your wedding day, so it’s worth getting to know each other.
My style of wedding photography is best described as creative wedding photojournalism. I am a member of the Wedding Photojournalist Association, and I care deeply about documenting the fleeting moments that make your wedding or elopement day uniquely and authentically yours.
When I'm not busy photographing weddings, my husband and I love to spend time in the outdoors. A typical vacation for us usually features a multi-day back country trek, unseasonably inclement weather, and more freeze-dried meals than I'd care to admit.
I am also a certified Nature & Forest Therapy Guide through the Association for Nature and Forest Therapy. I offer public and private guided shinrin-yoku experiences (aka forest bathing or forest therapy). I specialize in private walks for couples, which can be a wonderful way to relax in nature and reconnect with each other in advance of or just following your wedding or elopement celebrations. My guiding business is called Wind in Pines LLC. If you’re interested in adding a forest bathing walk to your wedding celebrations, whether as a couple, or for your wedding party or bridal shower, let me know! You can read more about forest bathing here.
In addition to my work as a photographer and forest bathing guide, I volunteer as a bird handler with a local raptor educational organization called HawkQuest.
Whether you’re eloping with just the two of you on a mountaintop in Colorado, planning a micro-wedding with a handful of guests, or having a big wedding with 200 guests…the event you’re planning is one that feels just right for the two of you, not something you’re doing to impress or please anyone else. You’re more interested in finding ways to reduce stress on your wedding day than adding drama. As for photography—you love those portraits of couples in beautiful landscapes, but the portfolios of some photographers leave you wondering if they can take anything but pretty portraits of couples in beautiful landscapes…and you wonder what their photos look like when they don’t have perfect natural light to work with. In addition to stunning portraits, you want to work with someone who has demonstrated their ability to take wonderfully composed, emotional, authentic images of you and your guests, no matter the setting or lighting situation.
