Love Notes

“Whitney is incredible!! Not only are the pictures unreal, but Whitney herself is such a sweet, thoughtful, and easy-going person. Our elopement went so smoothly and was such a blast. We came from out of town (East Coast –> Breckenridge for the elopement) and she went above and beyond to scout out a spots for pictures and ensure every part of the day went smoothly. I cannot say enough positive things about her and her work!!”


“Whitney was simply wonderful! As the Mother of the Bride, I am so touched by the moments & emotions she captured and how magical the images are. They are truly stunning and upon first look brought tears to my eyes! She was a delight to work with. She even did the Bride’s hair at the last minute and helped fluff the wrinkles from the gown. Whitney told us she was a full-service Photographer and she was. Brady, her husband, was working with her and the guys really felt comfortable with him. He even took the Bride & Groom’s dog back to their room after the photos were taken. So, not only are the photos a beautiful reminder of the day the, Whitney was a joy to work with! Since this was a destination wedding she also spent a lot of time helping us locate the perfect outdoor March venue. She hiked snowy trails with her video camera, drove around filming locations and shared those with us during online video conference calls. Whitney is a local and knows the area very well. She is professional and casual at the same time which was perfect for my Daughter’s day!”


“We hired Whitney to shoot our July wedding in Park City, UT and she blew us away with the results! She was very organized, professional, and detail oriented- she even stepped in when my day of coordinator was dropping the ball. She helped make suggestions to honor my mother who passed away which was very special. I highly recommend Whitney for a wedding, engagement shoot or any photo opportunities. We have so many amazing pictures from our special day to choose from. It was a fairy tale and the pictures tell the story!”


Fun facts

What do you consider your style to be?

A few things that are important to me: Intention over tradition, adventure over perfection, and vulnerability over inauthenticity. I always like to make sure I am capturing candid moments - every part of your wedding day is beautiful and deserves to be captured. As for editing, I'd say that my photos reflect the true landscape we're in. They won't be overly saturated or desaturated and I love to incorporate soft lighting whenever possible.

What are your favorite kinds of couples to work with?

I love couples who put their trust in me to help create + capture a wedding day that is true to them. If you're carefree, down for an adventure, we'll be the perfect fit :)

What are your favorite activities to do in The Rockies?

When not photographing couples, you can find me hiking, backpacking, skiing, SUPing the river, camping.. truly anything outside with my husband and 4 y/o border collie!

What is your favorite part about a wedding?

Each wedding is different and that's my favorite part. I love seeing how my couples have found ways to incorporate the small + sentimental things in to their special day. I am always here for an emotional groom and capturing unplanned moments.
