Weddings are a whirlwind. After the music winds down, after the decorations are taken down, after the friends and family go home, all that will remain from your best day ever — aside from your vows — are your photographs. Your photographs will bring back every emotion, every tiny moment, taking you back to the moments you long for, the small joys you’d forgotten in the rush of everything.
That is why I am so passionate about wedding photography.
I know there are dozens of amazing wedding photographers in Grand Junction.
Let me walk you through what you can expect from your unique experience with me.

What sets us apart
You’re probably wondering what sets me apart from other wedding photographers in Grand Junction. With over five years in business and over 60 weddings under my belt as the primary photographer, you can trust me to offer the most professional, fun, stress-free experience with unparalleled customer service.
Through all these weddings, I’ve learned how to create your perfect timeline for the day, adapt to changes to ensure no moments are missed, and make your family and wedding party comfortable in front of the camera. I will also help you through the wedding planning process, offering guidance on timing for your invitations, design for your save the dates, recommendations for back up plans and preferred vendors, and more. Your most precious memories are in experienced hands!

What we do:
Wedding Day Coverage
My wedding collections contain a minimum of up to 6 hours of coverage, all the way up to full wedding day coverage. I do Grand Junction weddings locally, and I specialize in beautiful mountain weddings and elopements all over western Colorado! I love to capture both the story and scenery of your celebration. I will help work with you on the timeline for your big day so all your most important moments will be captured! After the wedding, I have previews up within 1-2 days and your full wedding typically delivered in around 2-3 weeks. No waiting months to see any of your photos!
Wedding Day Details
Because the little things are really the big things on your wedding day, I try to capture as many of those little things as possible. The details of the day are one of my favorite parts! So much love goes into each handmade item, and so much time and investment goes into each decoration. I will work hard to capture every little part of your day.
The thing that really draws me to weddings is the candid emotion, the tiny intimate moments that pass in the blink of an eye (or click of my shutter!) The quick glance of the groom at his newly announced wife. The twinkle in the father’s eye as he gives away his little girl. The tears of the bride as she announces her deep love for her groom, barely audible like she’s giving away a secret. Those are the moments I live for and I love to capture for my clients, and I’m so grateful that they trust me enough to show me those emotions!
Your First Family Heirloom
As a full service wedding photographer all of my wedding collections come with a wedding album, showcasing your big day from start to finish. These quality albums will become your first family heirloom, a book to pass down to future generations. How much would you love to hold your great grandma’s wedding album? I believe in longevity — these memories are priceless and should be shared! That’s why I include an album no matter which collection best fits your budget.
Professional Products & More
As I’ve said, my mission for my couples is to ensure they have tangible products from their wedding day. I offer high end enlargements, canvases, acrylics, and heirloom boxes to give you and your family keepsakes from your best day ever. Plus every wedding collection comes with the finalized digital photographs of your big day in a gorgeous online gallery for viewing, sharing, and ordering those high end prints and products!
Wedding photography collections begin at $2,200.
Most of my couples spend upwards of $3,500 on their wedding coverage.
(I also offer hourly Elopement Photography Coverage for small, intimate celebrations!)
As a full service photographer, all collections include a wedding album, engagement session, digital negatives and more.
Please contact me for full pricing information so I can help walk you through it:
Payment is super easy. We require a non-refundable $800 retainer fee due at booking to reserve the date in our books. The rest of your collection balance will be due one month in advance of your wedding date. We will meet up to go over pricing and collections to help make everything as easy and clear as we can! You can pay by cash, check, or credit/debit card. Easy peasy!
