For me, making photographs is a delicate dance between observing the moments that unfold before me and giving natural direction to create an environment where people are open to being themselves.

If your family and friends think I’m an old friend, then I’ve done my job.

I love photographing couples and families who love each other fiercely and aren’t afraid to show it; who love being together without occasion. I believe that the people who know you best should be able to see you in your images. I come in without a shot list but with a good idea of what’s most important to you. I’ll make time for the legacy photographs showing who was there and how they belong, but I’ll focus more on photographing the story developing as we go and the connections that bring warmth and energy.

Our Goals

I intend to tell an artful story

Your photographs will tell a story through small details, abstract frames, remarkable portraits, and candid scenes. I aim to capture not just how it looked, but how it felt, and I curate the photographs I take to tell the unique story of the individuals in them. My goal is to create art that draws you in.

Come as you are

Through my work, I am invited into the most intimate spaces—no audience, no performance, just people. There is beauty in being human and I want you to show up in front of the camera as yourself. I want you to recognize yourself in your photographs, and that requires vulnerability and openness.

Imperfect moments are welcome

Relationships don’t follow a script. Perfectly posed photographs don’t bring back a flood of emotions. As a photographer I’m welcomed into your inner circle for a few hours or a few days, and I love to see and photograph it all—the tension and jitters, radiance and joy, tears and deep breaths of composure. I aim to contribute to an environment of presence over pressure, to let you stay in the moment as long and often as possible to create photographs that aren’t just beautiful, but also mean something to you.


Wedding collections include hourly coverage plus high-resolution images and full printing rights.

Where are you located?

I’m located in Boise, Idaho. With family in Chicago, I take extended trips to the midwest to photograph a number of weddings, families, and events there each year.

Do you travel for weddings and/or engagement sessions?

Yes! I’d love to travel for your wedding and/or engagement session and will include the travel cost in your custom quote.

Do you work with a second shooter or team?

Yes! I work with a second photographer and/or team for weddings and events with the exception of some intimate weddings or elopements. For years my husband, Kaleb, and I photographed every Studio Ostendo wedding together. Kaleb is an equal artist and astounding photographer, and whenever possible he accompanies me as a second photographer. With our evolving family needs, there are some weddings or events he is unable to attend, and when that is the case another talented photographer will join me. 

I photograph portrait sessions, family sessions, and lifestyle sessions solo.

Do you shoot film?

Yes! I love including film photographs in my work. I choose when to shoot film depending on a variety of factors. If you love the look of film, let me know when you inquire!

Do you work with videographers?

I work with all kinds of videographers! When choosing a videographer, I recommend selecting one with a similar approach so the visual team is on the same page.

How far in advance do you book?

I book weddings and larger events up to 18 months out, with most couples booking between 6-12 months before the event. I do take bookings on a shorter timetable when I’m available!

How many images will I receive?

I believe in quality over quantity, and image delivery is different for every event. On average I deliver 70-100 edited images per hour I am actively photographing.

What is your turnaround time?

I deliver weddings and events within six weeks. If you need photos done sooner, let me know when you inquire!

How can I book you for my wedding?

Inquire using the contact form or have your planner reach out to me. I’ll schedule a call and gather all the details I need to create a custom quote if I’m available for your date! Once we confirm a collection that best suits your event, you’ll be directed to pay a retainer and sign a contract to secure your event date(s).

Can I book an engagement session with you?

Of course! Complete the contact form and I’ll reach out with the details.

Do you offer family photography sessions?
