Why I am a Jackson Hole Wedding Photographer

I grew up the youngest grandchild and didn’t have much of a relationship with my grandparents. When my grandparents passed away I felt a sense of loss but also realized I didn’t have all the stories everyone else had. My grandfather was an avid photographer and had adventures I could only dream of having. I found myself surrounded by hundreds of albums, slides, and negatives. These images hit me at my core. I sat in a dim lit room crying and feeling connected. With each image I got to know my grandparents on a personal level. I was only a sophomore in high school, but I knew at that time that I wanted to create something that could speak to people’s souls. I wanted to preserve memories. I wanted the power to invoke emotions and human connection of generations. When I take an image I'm not just thinking about you. I am thinking about your posterity and those who love you. Images tell a story and a timeline of your life! What does your story say?

I decided to focus on my top priority and let the rest fall to the wayside. I picked the photographers, venue, and found my dress at a thrift store. After that I gave the rest to my big sister and mom. 

   Guess what? It was the best day ever, and everything went wrong.
My flowers were forgotten so I used all the small bouquets made for my nieces and put them together. The rain and hail made the glue in my hat dissolve, and the lens on my photographers camera kept fogging up,
The best part- I still have those images all over my walls in my home. They make me laugh, and truthfully get me through some tough times. Marriage is hard, life is hard, these beautiful pictures help me remember what matters most. 

   Another was trusting another wedding photographer to capture the important moments. I had been shooting wedding's for years, and now it was MY turn.I realized I needed to take my own advice. Advice I have been giving other brides for years.
When all is said and done, what will last besides your love?
The cake will spoil, family and friends come and go, the dress won't fit, and life can overwhelm you. Images last long after you're gone. They are a testament of your love, your story for generations to come.
    When I started looking at my budget I realized that photography was the one priority.
Now looking back, I am so grateful I did. 

Planning a wedding without regret is key!


Wedding Photographer | Jackson Hole, wy

Because of my own wedding I changed the way I run my business. I increased my turn around time, the number of images I deliver and more. Why? I hated waiting for my images. I realized that  images that don't seem important to me of a guest might mean everything to the couple and family. My job is to simply capture and deliver the day - not dictate what is important or not. What has happened from this change? So many messages even years later thanking me for getting images of someone at a wedding, because those images now are priceless as memories fade, images are forever.

my wedding day changed my business

Our savior taught us to love everyone. We are open and loving towards all relationships. We firmly believe that everyone deserves beautiful and timeless images.

we love Everyone


I mean, who doesn't, right? I took Sadie on her first plane flight and we can't stop exploring and learning about photography in other cultures. and getting some time to recharge.

education and travel


Having a family didn't come easily to both of us. With a little bit of science and a whole lotta Jesus we have rainbow babies of our own. We LOVE being mamas.

I first met Sadie back in 2015 when she shadowed me at a wedding. I went home and looked up her work and was gobsmacked. Her work was next to par with mine - I had no business being her "teacher"

We are two peas in a pod

Sadie is one of the best people I've ever met. She's the first to jump in and fix your hair, fluff your dress, and hold your veil. Laying on the mud to get *the shot* is common for her. She's the most kindhearted and truly genuine people you'll ever meet. With her incredible talent, and experience. You're in good hands here. 
As a mom to twins she has the expertise of multitasking with ease, keeping everyone on schedule all with a smile.

I’m a food craver. I’m a rope swing into the lake kind of girl. I’m a spontaneous trip to Mexico, gardening barefoot, singing to my chickens, and dancing in the kitchen to 90's country music kind of gal. I have always marched to the beat of my own drum. In high school I did something crazy. I started a business, and loved every minute of it.

I grew up in the mountains of Idaho where we have just settled down and plan to homestead on our ten acres. I pride myself on being a professional third wheel. Best believe I am dreaming up a vision and plan with you as when I should be sleeping. I am dyslexic, and one of my gifts from it is that I feel situations more than I see them. I don't just see a pretty setting - I feel it. I love creating emotionally packed galleries for my couples. 

 I graduated with my Bachelors in special education and rehabilitation. My love for seeing beauty in everyone and their abilities has been a gift of mine since I was a girl. So many things from my formal education have allowed me to connect with people on a more emotional level. I don't want to give you pretty photos. I want to give you photographs that tell a story for generations to come.

my tips & tricks to planning a stress free wedding

Becoming a Love and Story client doesn't just mean you'll having a fun Jackson Hole wedding photographer. It's having someone who views you as family, and wants the best for you! 

Being Jackson Hole locals, something about those beautiful peaks will forever keep us rooted here. If you're looking for adventure and a love for Grand Teton National Park - you've found it.

let's connect

The MOST important factor in choosing a photographer is that you have a connection not only to their work, but to them.

Likewise it's important for us that there is a connection. We don't want to be strangers showing up to a wedding. That connection is essential to being able to document your event! Because of this we don't accept every wedding that comes our way. If we don't feel we are the right fit, we are more than happy to help you find one that will!


Thank you!
we'll be in touch soon!
