If you have never seen the sun set on the Salt Flats of Badwater Basin in Death Valley National Park, then you have not fully lived your life quite yet. This place……is just absolutely unreal. To get real nerdy, I’ve always been interested in geology; funky looking rocks, crystal formations, and sand colored brilliantly by raw metals within the earth. Death Valley National Park holds. . .
2018 was a whirlwind of a year! It was filled with lots of traveling, meeting new friends, starting nursing school, and working with the most incredible couples! I usually hold onto a word throughout the year and this year my one word ended up becoming two. Have you ever heard someone talk about. . .
Storms create some of the most awe inspiring moments in nature and this October morning’s rain shower at Sprague Lake was no exception! Erin and Bradley awoke well before mornings first light in Estes Park, Colorado, to say their vows at sunrise in. . .
Does anyone else really have a better reason to elope in Rocky Mountain National Park other than a park ranger himself and his lovely fiancee? Nope, but I would highly encourage those considering eloping in Colorado to do so here! It is honestly one of the most. . .
This area is one of my favorite spots to hike and explore, much less photograph - a suprise sunrise proposal was no exception. Myles (my cousin from Oklahoma - who is a talented singer/songwriter and guitar player) contacted me about proposing to his girlfriend during their road trip through Colorado. He had renovated an old Van for traveling the country which allowed room to sleep and camp. . .
My second big adventure in Maui was to take a trip following the road that travels the entire length of the Hawaiian island - The Road to Hana. There can be a lot of traffic on this road so we set off before the sun had risen and wound through sleepy island towns while dawn slowly crept its way above the horizon. Our car was full of friends, Carlo and. . .
Justin and Brittany contacted me about photographing their post elopement celebration with family (they exchanged vows in Norway!) out in Nathrop, Colorado, by a little cabin amongst the woods. I was absolutely ecstatic to join in and document their story with their family. This celebration was so special as their family supported their decision to travel to Norway. . .
This backcountry anniversary session in the James Peak Wilderness of Colorado was one of my favorite adventures from this summer. Although nursing school was keeping me extremely busy I still made time for as many excursions as possible. I filled each free day I had (because you don’t spend summer here without getting outdoors) seeing new places and finding unexplored hidden gems within the Colorado Rockies. Even after living here for. . .
It was several years ago now that highlining became a part of my photography life. I had gone on a wild hitch-hiking adventure (I know, I know - I must make an adventure journal entry for y’all about this!) that led me through Chatanooga, Tennessee, and most importantly couch surfing in Moab, Utah. It was here that I met the. . .
This adventurous engagement session was at the top of my favorite Hawaiian experiences in Maui - second of course to all the poke and fresh fruit I stuffed my face with daily! I've always dreamt of traveling to and working in one of the Hawaiian. . .
