I’m focused on the gritty moments that happen in-between. A hand-written note from Grandma read at your ceremony; the way the light shined on your face when you took your dress down from the hanger; the way Mom smiled when she watched you walk down your candle-lit aisle; the way your partner pulled your hair back behind your ear; a song playing in the background of your mountain-top ceremony, the one you dance to together in the living room when your world feels dark.
Because life flashes by and doesn't ask if you're ready. Because family can mean so many things. Because you don't want to forget this feeling. Because you need to do this your own way. This is what is real. Photos and films become more important, not the day after your wedding to share online, not to compare wedding trends or compete with your family's expectations, but to keep these moments with you and remember how they felt. This means every memory deserves to be captured, not just the polished ones. I'll help you stop time, if just for a moment.
Let me bring my cinematic, alternative, story-telling approach to your imagery so you can focus on being in the moment, real feelings, imperfect in-between moments, with bad-ass portraits and show-stopping landscapes that make you feel something. A wedding day without a pre-determined vision of "should", that allows you to unapologetically be yourselves and experience the love between you.

Film is an extension of the way I tell your story--an opportunity for me to pull these moments out of fleeting time, and connect your still images to your memories.
This style of video isn't for everyone--it's a snapshot into the window of your heart, in a sentimental style that leans into a "home video" nostalgia. It’s perfectly-imperfect, and is not meant to replace a more cinematic wedding video, unless that’s your jam–-because it’s mine, too.
These are filmed by hand, by me personally (or my baby sister as second shooter, with an artistic vision in her own right and the perfect nostalgic match and tender attachment to our childhood) and carefully woven into your photo session time. They are shot and delivered in a super-8 style, but are not processed on film; this allows for a shorter delivery time, the ability to film much longer without running out of film rolls, a smaller window for error or loss, but every ounce of the same heart -racing wistfulness you'd expect from watching these tender moments unfold.
These films can be added onto elopement days, wedding days, your couple's portraits or in-home session, an adventure session, and even boudoir.
A Short Reel 3-5 minute cut perfect for a small glimpse into the moments of the day, or for social media sharing. Add onto your wedding day, your engagement or adventure session. Short reel does not include ceremony or speech audio.
STARTS AT $800
A Documentary Film 30-60 minute documentary video of your day, including full ceremony and speech cuts; required to be booked with a minimum 4-hour photo package and includes a second shooter as videographer.
STARTS AT $300/HOUR

A chapter of your life, taken right out of time. Think, a hike in the foothills, or snuggling together in your favorite nook of your home, a date night through an art gallery, or anything in between. I'll spend this time intentionally documenting your life as it unfolds; all the laughter, the happy tears, the quiet reassurance of your partner tucked in close to you. This is our opportunity to go big and get creative together, while capturing a core memory to look back on.
This session includes:
– Photography coverage starting at four hours
– Your location choice either local to Denver, or beyond (travel fees may apply)
– A short reel 3-5 minute super8 style highlight film of the day
– Storybook Heirloom; your tangible memory of these moments
If you have questions about what this could look like for you, reach out to me – no idea is off the table. Each of my wedding packages include a complimentary engagement session that may be upgraded to a Storybook Session at a discounted rate.
STARTS AT $2,800
