aliesha & ryan | emerald lake elopement

Aliesha and Ryan’s intimate elopement at Cathedral Mountain Lodge was a DREAM – seriously, if you’re looking for a gorgeous place to elope in the mountains, they offer an amazing package! And I would love to photograph it, of course ;) – Cozy cabins, close family, and the most perfect parting of rain clouds for their ceremony (it seriously rained the entire morning and stopped just for the ceremony and formals – talk about lucky!)

I immediately clicked with these two when we first met in November 2015. Aliesha is a budding photographer (who recently took my Embracing the Chaos Class and is KILLING it) that is also introverted like me, so we were meant to work together haha. We bonded over our love for dogs and photography. She is a gem and Ryan is just the sweetest guy. They are definitely made to be together.

Being a hands on learner and incredible inpatient, reading something and then trying to apply it just doesn’t work. I needed someone to physically show and explain to me what to do and why in order for it to really s ...

2016 | A year of acceptance
Each year I am blown away by my clients, their willingness to allow me to create memories that will be forever kept and passed down to the wee ones they are squeezing and tickling in each of those images. Sometimes this passion is so strong that it hurts to think about and makes my heart heavy. truth bomb in 3...2...1... This year was an incredibly difficult season for me mentally. Having anxiety and being introverted is tough in this craft and I have definitely struggled this year with balancing the constant overwhelming feeling of doubt and my fear of emails and replying to people via social media - please tell me i'm not the only one ...
