Weddings

Grand Junction Colorado to Moab, Utah & Beyond

looking for a wedding photographer?

My photography  style is natural, bright and joyful, you might call it bright and airy or classic.  I like skin tones to look natural and  have decided to stay away from trendy editing styles that come and go.  I am an  adventurer and   love the outdoors, mountains,  desert landscapes flowers and nature are my thing. l  have an easy going personality, I don’t bend under the pressure of the day.  You might find me helping out with zippers and running to find an umbrella for the bride in the rain. I still choke up a little when the bride and groom say I do, I am right  there with you! I enjoy photographing weddings, I  would be honored  to be chosen to photograph your special day.

Details & Getting Ready

I like photographing  getting ready and bridal details  including the dress, rings and shoes etc.   Bridesmaids  laughing together, getting hair and make up done  are moment you will enjoy to look back on.  Men getting ready can make for some hilarious photos.  I like to take individual photos of bridesmaids and groomsmen it’s a special  day for them too. 

Ceremony 

 I work solo but carry two cameras, I like to use a zoom so I am out of the way for the ceremony. I am happy to photo any style of wedding ceremony from an elopement on the edge of a cliff to a traditional church wedding. I have photographed weddings in barns, wineries, community centers, church, hotels and private homes.   

Let me capture your memories

Portraits

 I like having fun during portraits, I know people want pictures done quick and easy so they can head to the bar.  I will find  a good location for the portraits and shoot them all in the one spot. Helps to work with a planner or someone with  a list of family groups to help speed up the process. For bride and groom portraits I like to find a nice background away from the crowd and take pictures for about 15 minutes at golden hour.  

Party Dancing & Exits

 Party time   after portraits and speeches is when people relax and have fun. I set up off camera flash on light stands and you may see me on the dance floor  or wandering around looking for action.   A good DJ is  important to  get people on the dance floor,  light sticks help  create movement as people like waving them around. I will stay till the sparkler exit or when the dance floor has emptied.
