Mountain wedding, elopement, whater-you-want-to-call-it photography for the down to earth, creatives out there.
I’ve been photographing people in places professionally since 2011 and—despite not liking most wedding photography—I love this “job.” I get to work with some amazing humans who let me witness and document the power and beauty of intentional relationships and community. As a recent friend said at her own wedding “love is a phenomenon”- and I get to document it.
My approach is to find that sweet spot between candid and editorial. When we take a portrait, it is intentional and stylized- but 90% of the day is organic and go-with-the-flow. I believe wholeheartedly in you living the day fully with your people- my job is to create beautiful images from the story you’re already living. I’m here to read the subtleties of the day and coach you accordingly. Sometimes that means asking you to take a step forward or backward to find the best lighting. Sometimes that means not saying anything at all and just letting you breath in the moment.
Like most photographers/artists, I wear many hats and inhabit many spheres that bleed into one another. I’m also an editorial photographer and teach photography at the University level. In 2020 I went back to school for an MFA in photography and Art + Ecology at Rhode Island School of Design (one of the top art schools in the world). All of this influences my wedding photography and vice-versa.
I use medium format digital and film cameras (like those used in magazines) as well as the latest high-end 35mm Sony cameras. This mix of cameras creates a refined but candid feel. It is both modern and nostalgic.
If you’re intrigued- send me an email, and we’ll get started.
Beth did the MOST incredible job documenting our wedding! Not only was she kind, professional, and so easy to work with, but her photos are so genuine and thoughtfully captured. She documented the small, behind-the-scenes moments that make a wedding day so special, in addition to the classic photos every couple wants. The best way I can describe it is she captured the way that it FELT in the most stunning way. Can't recommend her enough!
I can't say enough good things about Oros Photography. Beth's photography is a reflection of who she is as a person. Her photographs are personable, genuine, unique, and heartfelt. The photos we have from Beth are true treasures, I don't think anyone else I have ever met could have captured such moments. She has an eye for beautiful moments, scenery, and people's interactions with each other. Her work speaks for itself. Beth is an artist and has become a dear friend, I wouldn't recommend anyone else.
Beth is completely amazing. She is warm and thoughtful, and just an incredible photographer. As we neared the wedding, we began to talk about Beth as one of our guests rather than one of our vendors. She made friends with our friends and family, and any "photo shoot" time just felt like my wife and I spending an afternoon hanging out with Beth. She told us shortly after we met that we don't need to take photos for long if we don't want to because she gets the shot the first time. And after seeing our photos, wow was she right. Hiring Beth was the easily the best decision we made.
Beth is not only an incredibly talented photographer, but a gem of a human being. She’s a vendor at your wedding that you’ll ask to put down the camera so you can drag her onto the dance floor. Her work is so striking and so REAL. She really captures the emotion in each image and I just LOVE her work. I can’t recommend her highly enough.
We could not have been happier to have chosen Beth as our wedding photographer! Beth was kind and communicative throughout the booking process, and a calming presence on our big day. We appreciated her expertise having shot multiple weddings at our venue - Tennessee Pass Nordic Center & Cookhouse in Leadville - and were in awe of her work when we received a plethora of gorgeous photos a couple of days after our wedding. She has a talent for capturing authentic, emotion-filled moments and is a true artist - as well as an incredible human.
What do you consider your style to be? A mix of candid and editorial. Think handwritten letters, impromptu dance parties, a pinch of Wes Anderson vibes, and maybe some New York Times editorial.
What are your favorite kinds of couples to work with? I work with a lot of non-traditional couples who aren’t afraid to do things a bit different…or very different from the norm. From private elopements at the bottom of the Grand Canyon to huge camping weekend parties to quiet and intimate dinners in your backyard…I’m game to document it all and help brainstorm along the way.
Do you travel for clients? If so, where? I regularly travel throughout the Southwest and the Rocky Mountain region, but I'm happy to go beyond that for the right story. I try to keep travel costs reasonable- I ask couples to cover the costs (hotel, flight if necessary, etc) but that's it (no travel surcharge for time, etc).
What are your favorite activities to do in The Rockies? Skinny dipping in every mountain lake possible!
