"When I say I want to photograph someone, what it really means is that I'd like to know them. Anyone I know I photograph."

I’ve been shooting photography for over 14 years.  My passion started in 2005 thanks to my high school photo teacher John Costello who taught me how to take a photo with a tin can, shoot and develop by hand 35mm black and white, color, and alternative process film. The darkroom became my slice of heaven!

In 2009 I won a scholastic scholarship for my photography portfolio, and it was the first time in my life I felt purpose, and I knew I was made to do this. 

I’m Colorado born and raised, and I can without a doubt say that I love this state with all my being. I don’t believe there’s any other kind of remedy for a bad day than being unplugged and in the great outdoors. 

I’m a soon to be bride myself! 3 years ago I met a handsome Canadian over apple cider, and well, ever since that first date we’ve been inseparable. He is my best friend, my travel buddy, and my everything. We picked a date and are so excited to elope this year in Ireland! 

My fiancé, Sam, and I try to travel a to somewhere new 2-3 times a year. A lot of our friends ask us why we’re always on the go and honestly it’s because we’re investing in something that we are truly passionate about: the memories and experiences. Our bucket list is: Japan, Thailand, and Nepal (I have a dream to stand at base camp of Mount Everest)! 

I currently live in Denver with my fiancé and our Blue Merle Schnauzer.
