I’m a full time photographer living in Boise, Idaho.

      I’m an optimistic, overly excited, loud, ENFJ, and energetic Slytherin.

      I never planned on being a photographer. I got my biology & english degrees from the University of Montana, but I always loved documenting my travels and my life. Eventually I graduated college and realized my summer gig of photographing weddings was what made me happiest, so I moved to Boise, Idaho without a plan and started my business here. I’ve been full time for 3 years and I’ve been taking photos professionally for 5 years.

      I’m obsessed with castles and peanut butter. You’ll usually find me biking around Boise hopping from one happy hour to another on my downtime. I like to spend the off wedding season traveling to new countries. My dream is to adopt a dog when I stay in one place long enough to be a good dog momma. My life-long dream is to visit every national park in the country.

      I specialize in outdoor weddings. If you want a traditional indoor wedding, I’m probably not your gal. If you care about your photos and throwing a good party with good food & friends, I’m probably your gal. If you want to invite me to your after party, I’m also probably your gal. If you want to elope in Scotland or at the end of a 10 mile hike in the mountains, you’re my dream couple.

      I believe weddings should be all about making the day feel as you as it possibly can. The weirder the better. I’ve photographed 78 weddings and I fully believe the only wrong way to do a wedding is to do it the way someone else wants to do it.

      frequently asked ?'s
      where do you live?

      Boise, Idaho is where I'm based!

      what cameras do you use?

      nikon d750 & nikon d610 are my two best friends. otherwise, I use only prime lenses. I have a 24mm, 50mm, 85mm, and 135mm. I always travel with 3 camera bodies on me for backup!

      do you travel? how much extra is travel costs?

      YES! I've been to Scotland, Texas, Oregon, Wyoming, Montana, California, and Tennessee for work. I love experiencing new places.

      I don't charge travel fees for McCall, Idaho or Stanley, Idaho in the summer months.

      For all weddings & elopements beyond 80 miles of Boise, I ask that you cover my airfare or gas and a hotel room for the night before & after your wedding! I prefer to book all travel accommodations myself and provide a custom travel quote for each location.

      what are your rates?

      my weddings start at $3,000.

      my elopements start at $1,500.

      portraits start at $500.

      do you only shoot elopements?

      nope! while I do love elopements & intimate weddings, I love celebrating your love with your family and friends in bigger settings as well. for weddings over 150 people, I recommend a second shooter to make sure nothing gets missed!

      do you have a second shooter?

      Second photographers are available for an extra $250 on your wedding day! I have specific photographers I've worked with and personally trained so you get the best of the best.

      why is wedding photography so expensive?

      I get it. I do. However, when you hire a professional quality, not only do you get the assurance of an experienced professional who can handle any situation, but you get the protection of insurance and liability in case there are any accidents. all my gear is insured and I have backups for every scenario. I have also taken classes in digital editing.

      when will I get my photos back?

      72 hours for engagements & portraits.

      2 weeks for weddings & elopements.
