Hollie + Nate | Thornton, CO | An Elegant Private Residence Wedding


On Saturday, June 24th, surrounded by many of their friends and family, Nate and Hollie became Mr. and Mrs. Hummel at the beautiful home of one of their family friends in Thornton, Colorado. These two made my job, well...not a job at all! I can whole-heartedly say Hollie and Nate are two of the purest, kindest and joyous souls ever! I don't think either of them stopped smiling the whole day. Even as Hollie walked down the aisle, and Nate was wiping away tears, he still had the biggest smile on his face!

Everything about Hollie and Nate's day celebrated and showcased how much love there is between them, as well as all the love everyone in their life has for them. It makes sense how they each had 10 people in their bridal party, and I'm sure it was hard to narrow it down to even that number! Hollie was blanketed with words of admiration numerous times for her kind heart and loyalty, while Nate was for his steadfast and lighthearted spirit. It was so special to see these two be celebrated and lifted up the same way they have clearly celebrated and supported the people in their lives.

Decorated with simple, yet elegant details, everything had such a special charm to it and it truly was such an amazing day!

Hollie + Nate! It was such an honor to photograph your love. Thank you for trusting me with your sweet memories!!

Enjoy a few of my favorites from their dreamy day! xx

Allie + Garon Engagement | Denver, CO

It all started at a camp called Camp Timberline.

They were both camp counselors and Garon quickly developed a "camp crush". While Allie wasn't interested at first, and thought Garon was "pretentious" (and even told him that!), they got paired together at Day Camp and things started to change. As they started talking and getting to know each other more, Garon went from being seen as pretentious to somehow getting Allie to like him enough to go on their first date together by the end of the week. And as they say, the rest is history!

Fast forward, and thank goodness they went on that first date because Allie and Garon are one of those couples that are seemingly made for each other. Seriously, don't even get me started!

This week we met up for their engagement session at Cheesman Park in Denver, and enjoyed the perfect weather and glowy evening light. I'm so excited to have the honor of capturing their time as an engaged couple, as well as their big day in a little less than two months!

Allie and Garon, thank you for trusting me to capture these special moments and for being so full of joy and love. You sure make my job easy! I can't wait to celebrate you two in July, and I'm so excited to share these highlights from my time with you!!

Jared + Madison Engagement | Boulder, CO

Ok, I'm so excited to share these because 1. these two are so adorable and 2. I've been dying to shoot in a greenhouse for awhile now and it finally happened!!

Jared was one of my good friends in High School, and while High School doesn't seem like that long ago (and it really hasn't been THAT long), we've all grown up in so many ways! I can't express how happy I get when I see newly "engaged" posts pop up in my Facebook feed, and it was no exception when I found out Jared got down on one knee! Engagement is such an exciting and special time, and I'm so honored whenever I get the chance the capture it. I seriously couldn't be happier for Jared and the love he's found in Madison. The couple of times I've spent with these two as a couple and see the way they look at each other, they just make sense. Jared and Madison, I wish you the very best! xx


Austin + Shannon Engagement | Santa Monica, CA

They met at Pepperdine Law School where they were on the same debate team. Since then, they’ve both graduated and are successful lawyers in the LA area, and happily live with the other half of their cute little family - their puppies Scout and Indiana! 

Austin's my cousin, however there are a good amount of years between us. I've always looked up to Austin as he's led the way through all the life milestones, and have always known him to be extremely hard-working, kind, and passionate, especially when he gets talking about anything that brings out the inner lawyer in him. ;)

Shannon entered Austin's life around 4 years ago, and we all knew pretty early on, she was something special. I had the chance to finally meet her at family Christmas in 2015, and can I just say I couldn't be more thrilled that we get to officially welcome her into the family in less than a month from now?! Shannon is so loving, brilliant and lights up any room she walks into. Since I've known Austin my whole life, it's been so fun to see how Shannon really brings out such a fun-loving and playful spirit in him through their relationship! 

I had the best time shooting their engagement session while we wandered their local dog park with Scout and Indi, and then ended at Santa Monica Pier where the coast had a pretty heavy blanket of haze over it, but made for some perfect golden hour glow light! 

I seriously can't wait to get these two back infront of my camera and to celebrate their big day with all of our family at Lake Tahoe! Austin and Shannon, thank you for trusting me to capture your day! I couldn't be more excited. See you next month!

Maggie + Landon Engagement | Red Rocks


They went to different schools and met each other at a high school track meet through a mutual friend. They've been together for five-and-a-half years and have made it through long distance dating and guiding whitewater rafting trips together for three summers!

In February, Landon got down on one knee and Maggie couldn't say anything besides, "YES!!!"

Oh my goodness I've been so excited to share these! Red Rocks has quickly become one of my favorite places to shoot, and for obvious reasons. The dreamy golden hour light, and the surprisingly warm and gorgeous weather in the middle of a Colorado March, combined with Maggie + Landon's decent looks made for the perfect session!

These two are the cutest couple and love to have a good time! I could NOT stop laughing!!!

Maggie + Landon I seriously can't wait to capture your wedding in August! Going to be the best day. xx
