This was just one of my favorite shoots ever. Horseshoe bend is gorgeous, and location certainly helps make images lovely, but these two just sealed the deal of awesomeness. They were up for anything, including climbing down a canyon wall with no visible end, and standing far closer than I was comfortable with to the […]

So Snow Canyon State Park is outrageously gorgeous, but it pales in comparison to these two! I LOVED this session and getting to meet this sweet couple. I found Haley via Instagram and a few days later here we were 1,600 miles from Illinois in the gorgeous state of Utah in the super early AM […]

Beautiful couple plus beautiful Boulder Colorado mountain scenery = one exceedingly happy photographer.

5 years of marriage has worn well on these two – like the comfiest sweater you own that is all cozy and warm and wonderful but still manages to make you look darn good. We just went for casual and relaxed with this session and of course it doesn’t hurt that these two are some […]
