Great Sand Dunes National Park Couples Engagement Photoshoot

If you are anything like me (and I think you might be), you love the great outdoors.  Perhaps, like my partner and I, your greatest memories together are out in the wild. Free to explore, laugh, feel young, and make cherished memories together. If this is the case, I think I know exactly what you're looking for. Ok, I may not know EXACTLY, but I am very much looking forward to working with you to make your dreams a reality and doing what I do best--photograph it all!

I take great pride in and go through great lengths to capture authentic, timeless, and awe-inspiring photos that my clients cherish for the rest of their lives. Whether you've invited me to shoot your dream engagement, elopement or destination wedding in a jaw dropping location or simply to immortalize a special adventure to look back on and daydream about forever, the story and emotion my photos will capture will be sure to fill your heart every time you look at them. From the planning phase to the big day, we work together to make sure your vision is realized!

+ We will have as many additional planning sessions as needed to finalize timelines, locations, permit requirements, color schemes, share funny jokes, and maybe some cool bear photos we found on Instagram.

+ The adventure officially begins--all the planning and anticipation pays off and we have the absolute best, most wonderful time out in the wilderness together.  Everything is amazing and you have have the most memorable and beautiful experience.

+ You go home, relax, and reflect on how much you love each other and loved the adventure.  I go home and get started processing your photos for delivery!

+ We all hug, high five, and reminisce on how awesome the adventure was next time we see each other.

Colorado Rocky Mountains Engagement Photoshoot


How do we know we'll take good photos?  What if we're awkward?

First of all, I think we're all a little awkward at times.  That said, by the time we hit the road or hit the trail I think we'll know each other pretty well because we've been in touch for so long.  We will have had plenty of time to talk about your relationship, your future together, your expectations from the shoot, and just random other stuff that will make the shoot go super smoothly.  During the shoot, we'll work through various shots and prompts that make you feel comfortable and I'll also be busy capturing the nuanced, candid moments in between!

I see the packages all say "starting at" for the price--what does that mean?

It's helpful to be able to have a discussion about your plans to get a better understanding of any additional costs that may be necessary for the big adventure.  There are various details like some travel costs, permit fees, and, in certain cases, length of time that would be considered to come to the final cost.  That's why it's helpful to talk first, though--there is always a way to figure out a plan that works for everyone!

What if I love the idea of this, but I don't know exactly where we should go?

This is another reason it's helpful to chat and get to know each other as we figure out a plan.  Of course, if you have a very specific place you'd like to go, I am happy to go with that.  However, if you aren't so sure or have a general area in mind, I would love to figure it out.  I have spent a lot of time out exploring areas all across the country and I absolutely love researching and scouting new spots--we will definitely be able to find the perfect handpicked location! 

You've mentioned permits and permit fees a few times now--what's that all about?

All federal land agencies (NPS, USFS, BLM, etc) and many state and local agencies require a filming permit for commercial photoshoots (yes, in this case this is considered 'commercial')  and some may require separate permits for wedding ceremonies.  For engagement and elopement adventures, these permits likely won't be difficult or expensive to obtain, but are necessary to be on the up and up.  These are all things we'll want to discuss when coming up with our plans for the big adventure.

How many photos will we get?

Given how unique each adventure is, I try not to put exact numbers down in a one size fits all kind of way.  A multi-day adventure will surely produce more photos than a single day or just a few hours, but I would say it's safe to say that 80 delivered photos  per shooting hour is a good rule of thumb.

Let's get started!

I'd love to hear more about you and what you're looking for. Oh, and btw--filling this survey out absolutely doesn't commit you to anything, it just gets the conversation started!  And listen, you deserve the absolute best of the best, so I want to make sure that we're a good fit to work together.
