Photography For The Creative Soul

because your story isn't ordinary. And your photos shouldn't be, either.


We totally get it. Finding the right photographer for your wedding or adventurous elopement can be a pretty difficult process. Knowing what to look for can honestly seem a bit daunting. What types of styles are there to choose from? Which specific photography style really speaks to you? How can you be sure you find a photographer who really understands your love story and can showcase it in a way that's true to who you are as a couple? It can be a lot to take in. But here's the thing: we're firm believers that it all really comes down to the way a photographer's images make you feel.

Our mission is to photograph the raw, organic personalities of our couples and give them images that speak to their dynamic and their unique story. Our passion is photographing free-spirited couples and people doing the adventurous things that fuel their lives. We live for couples who are excited about sneaking away to a National Park or one of the many gorgeous places nature has created to say their vows in a place they can call their own: their special spot. We're believers that a wedding day isn't about the beautiful decorations and the perfect cake. Sure, those things are nice, but there's nothing that fuels us more than capturing the connection between two people in love. After all, that's really what a wedding day is all about. While we definitely have a distinct style, we pride ourselves on creating work that is also timeless. We want our images to be something your grandkids look at and think, "dang grandma and grandpa were pretty cool."

WEDDINGS + COUPLES

When it comes to engagements, elopements, and weddings, nothing is more important to us than telling your story in an organic, true-to-self way. We're not fans of the overly-posed. When we photograph our couples, we encourage them to play, adventure, and really sink into one another.

This is one of the main reasons we have a special place in our hearts for adventure elopements and weddings. We love couples with a sense of wonder for the world and its amazing landscapes. We adore brides and grooms who aren't afraid to hike miles to get to the perfect elopement spot. And there's nothing that makes our heart sing louder than a couple who's first instinct during a rain shower is to start slow dancing.

PORTRAITS

We cannot stress this enough, but portraits are so much more than a simple headshot. And they're more than having you sit all pretty and smile straight at the camera. In our humble opinion, portrait photography has the power to speak a person's soul. Have you ever seen a photo of someone, and just though to yourself, "dang, I feel like know them." It's almost as if you could feel them on an emotional level. That connection and feeling it worth its weight in gold.

That's what a good portrait does. It's so much more than simply documenting a moment or stage in life. It's a person's existence mirrored back at you. And this is one of the very reasons portraits are some of our favorite types of sessions to photograph.
