the artist behind the name ‘Dear Kodak.” An adventurous wedding & portrait photographer based in Idaho but I have a heart for all things travel. I will travel to wherever your story takes us. My style is inspired by candid emotion, in-between moments, authentic love, natural color and of course–The Great Outdoors. if you are the type of person who is passionate about adventure, whether it be found in the mountains high or the seas below, whose wants to create something beautiful and real, and ready to be apart of an experience rather than a simple “photoshoot” then we would be the perfect fit. You aren’t just a client and I’m not a vendor, I want to be friends. friends get to the heart of the moment and celebrate each-other, I can’t wait to celebrate YOU.
let’s relive the moments that made you feel passionately alive, let’s capture those.
maybe it was a moment that made your heart beat a little faster. a moment that gave you all the stomach butterflies. a moment that gave you the best goosebumps + chills. maybe for you, it was the moment you realized you had fallen in love. the moment you had your first baby. the moment you said “I do.” the moment you saw the ocean for the first time. the moment you graduated and felt all the excitement for what’s next. the moment you gazed up at the stars and felt the wind whisper. the moment you saw the golden sun set over a mountain lake. the moment that you listened to your favorite song for the first time. the moment you felt truly connected.
wherever and however, these moments found you and they make up your story. as human beings, we were created to feel. to feel love, to feel alive, to feel heart-ache, to feel excitement. these moments are uniquely yours & they deserve to be captured and relived. threaded together intangibly + unscripted, they go with you wherever you are and whoever this life shapes you to be. I aim to tell your story. To take you back to the moments that make your heart burst at the seams, let’s document your story…uniquely your way.
your story is an adventure in itself. there are the valleys and peaks, the ups and downs, the moments filled with laughter and the moments that are soft, quiet, intimate. an adventure that shapes the person you are today–right now. let me tell THAT story. I’ll document it and let you savor it for years to come. 15, 25, 75+ years down the road you deserve to look back at this time in your life and remember exactly how it felt and what made you feel. I do things a little differently. I’m not going to force you into uncomfortable poses and fake smiles, I’m not just going to take photos of you in front of a pretty waterfall and call it good….no no no, I want to shoot in a place that has meaning and purpose to you, I want to capture your candid laughs and intimate kisses in-between moments of just having fun together!!! Let’s make it epic and untraditional.
let’s create something timeless and document the beginning of your great love story, the transitional chapter of graduating and spreading your wings, or whatever your story may be. it’ll be a BLAST and I promise it’ll be worth it.
