What makes me the best national park photographer for you? Let me explain.
MEET YOUR NATIONAL PARK PHOTOGRAPHER & GUIDE
When I’m shooting I’m a
normal human being total goof, creating a fun atmosphere where it’s easy for you to feel comfortable being YOURSELF. The word “professional” in front of “photographer” is a little hard for me to stomach, since I lie in the dirt A LOT. But what I lack in dignity I make up for in sound effects. I’ve been shooting people in love full-time since 2013 though, so I guess I must accept the title. I am also an “adult”. I met my husband when I moved to Colorado in 2015 – literally, on my first night- and now we have a forever sleepover. I recommend it all.
“NOT ALL TREASURE IS SILVER AND GOLD.”
-CAPTAIN JACK SPARROW
BEST NATIONAL PARK PHOTOGRAPHER IN THE USA
– #1 in WED ELOPE STORY AWARDS from WPJA –
THE BEST NATIONAL PARK PHOTOGRAPHER IS NOMADIC!
OUR BIGGEST ADVENTURE YET
In August 2021, my partner and I sold our house, downsized everything we own, and bought a 5th wheel camper. Now we live nomadically on the road and travel across the USA shooting amazing elopements along the way. And yes, we brought the cats 🙂
This allows us to embrace our love of travel and the great outdoors. We now live where we work and play. We also get to meet up with YOU wherever you desire. See my elopement location guides to start brainstorming!
Fearless awards are for
outstanding candid photography.
It’s basically the wedding photography olympics and these are my gold medals.
I won’t miss your moments.
This makes me the best national park photographer for you if you value authentic, candid photography.
I’m also #1 in the USA and #2 Worldwide for storytelling and authenticity in elopements.
My favorite food is anything wrapped in more food. Pierogies. Ravioli. Gyoza. Samosas. Empanadas.
Give it to me.
I’ve traveled to 16 of the top US National Parks & 27 states, New Zealand, Indonesia, The Bahamas, Bermuda, Costa Rica, Germany & Austria, where I kept cheese in my pockets to lure stray cats into my arms. It was.. occasionally successful. If you have been to New Zealand, we are already friends.
A HAZARD TO MYSELF
I’ve danced contra, swing, lindy, blues and fusion, but off the dancefloor I’m a danger to myself. I once cut myself on a bagel, and another time on a bird bath, which are the two roundest objects known to mankind. It’s bad, dudes.
I LOVE NATURE
I hyperventilate when I see a Pika and I’m still not over how cute bunnies are. Who is, though? I’m also a birdwatching nerd and like to read field guides and maps for fun.
I LOVE NATIONAL PARKS, SO I LEAVE NO TRACE
It’s so important to leave the earth better than we found it. I’m prepared and committed to being a steward of the outdoors. I love responsibly bringing people into the magical places I’ve found. I’ve created dozens of detailed maps to connect you with your perfect adventure. All my vow renewals and elopements are built on the foundation of using no-impact environmental practices. Steve Irwin is a personal hero of mine, and I live in alignment with making him proud.
