Payton Petersen Photography

Hello! My name is Payton Petersen and I am the girl behind the camera. I have had a passion for photography since I was a little girl. I saved up and bought my very first camera when I was in 7th grade and haven’t put it down since. I still can’t believe this is my job! When I don’t have my camera in my hand, you can find me hanging out with my husband and dog, Maverick. I love everything outdoors. You name it, I’m there! I also love traveling, cooking, snowboarding and many more things!

I am definitely and have always been a hopeless romantic. Can you blame me though? I love love!! I love capturing people’s love stories and showing their true emotion through my images so that they can look back and remember the moment forever. I want my clients to look back on their photos years later and love them just as much or more than they did when they received them.

Love Notes
Payton was simply the best to work with. I am attending college in a different state and have a crazy schedule with athletic competition. While planning a wedding during my hardest semester Payton was a breath of fresh air. Payton worked with my schedule and outdid herself. She gave me the wedding photos of my dreams and was an absolute angel to work with. I recommend her to everyone.

Payton was the kindest and sweetest soul to work with. I’m not very photogenic and was stressed about looking good in my pictures. Payton did a wonderful job comforting me and fixing every little hair that was out of place! I was very impressed and excited when I saw the pictures. I have recommended Payton to everyone I talk to about weddings!

Payton did our engagements, bridals, and wedding and we were obsessed with our pictures every single time. During all sessions she made sure we were getting pictures that we wanted, made us feel comfortable, knew how to pose us perfectly, and had so many creative ideas. Her editing style is so fresh, clean, and stunning. We highly recommend her to everyone we know!

Fun facts

What do you consider your style to be?

I consider my style to be true to color, timeless and full of emotion.

How did you get started in the wedding industry?

My ultimate goal starting out was to get to be a full time wedding photographer. A couple months after I started doing it more seriously, I had a couple friends who trusted me and booked me as their photographer for their wedding. From there it kind of just took off. I am so grateful for those clients who trusted me when I was still discovering what my style was and just starting out. They are the reason I am here today.

Do you travel for clients? If so, where?

YES! Absolutely yes!! I love traveling so much. I definitely have a travel bug so the fact that I get to work and travel to amazing places at the same time is a dream come true. I travel wherever you want me to travel. I don't have any limits.
