I'm an elopement, wedding, and couples photographer based in Salt Lake City, Utah, but I travel all over the western US to photograph love stories!
After growing up in Oregon, I moved to Utah for school and graduated with my BFA in theater in 2023. I now use my art and lighting background to craft photos that last lifetimes.
As your photographer, I love helping you plan your elopement or session! Together, we create a Pinterest board so our. ideas are on the same page! I send a 60 page elopement guide to help you plan your day and spark some ideas. I also love sending you on a coffee date to fill out my longish questionnaire! This really helps me craft a session that reflects you.
During your session, I'll be there to provide umbrellas, and warmers, pick up a bottle of champagne, sew a button back on your dress, or anything else you need! Acts of service is my love language and it totally shows in my job!
After your day, I'll hand you a mini album of all the polaroids I took during your elopement day so you have photos before you even leave the location! You can expect a full sneak gallery within 72 hours so you can share your day or session with your friends and families almost instantly.
I'm so excited to meet you in California!
This really depends on the place you choose! I define elopements as 10 guests or under, and micro weddings as 40 guests and under. Some locations have designated spots for ceremonies that have a cap on the amount of people you can bring. While outside, we always want to make sure we keep the enviorment healthy!
