The Artist Behind the Camera
When I’m not running around from shoot to shoot, I can be found traveling somewhere in my state, in the country, or in the world. Currently living in the beautiful state of Idaho! My heart is fueled by adventure, new experiences, and epic landscapes. If you are looking for a photographer who will hike 14+ miles into the backcountry for some killer scenery, I’m all in. I’m happiest when I’m among the pines or wildflower fields. 99% of my time is spent in my denim overalls cuddled up with my cat named Kitty (lol), curled up with a bowl of good chips and spicy salsa…probably attempting to “paint” something on a canvas or I’m watching re-runs of new girl and schitts creek! Only a few things make me happier than snow-shoeing to hidden hot springs on a frosty winter day or hiking to a mountain lake surrounded by warm sunshine!! Music FILLS my soul + I’m often found listening to The Lumineers, Caamp, Vance Joy, Andrew Belle and Jack Johnson. I get overly excited about everything and am an open book, I am 100% the type of person to tell you my entire life story within 5 mins of meeting you but I want YOU to do the same!! The human experience and peoples individual stories fascinate me like no-other.
I have a passion for people, Jesus, art, travel, emotional music, and good Mexican food. My sweet-heart and side-kick adventurer, Zeb and I are currently engaged (WHOOP WHOOP, I know what you are feeling brides + grooms!) and we’ve been together for almost 5 1/2 years! My best friend, biggest encourager, and better half for sure. When we aren’t shooting, traveling, or eating wayyyy tooo many french fries, we are off somewhere in the mountains hiking, camping, or spending time at the nearest mountain lake.
I crave things that are different and outside of the box. I am inspired by the non-traditional way of doing things, things that are outside of my comfort zone so I knew I didn’t want a 9-5 job. I wanted to pursue something where I could inspire and capture the root of people’s hearts. What makes their hearts skip a beat, what has shaped their story to be the way it is, and whats at the core of their human experience.
Why the name ‘Dear Kodak’? I never wanted to take photos, just to take photos. I want to tell a story, hence the word “Dear”…I want to documenting your unique stories behind a the lens of camera. That’s what I aim to do with photography–to capture the way the moments feel, photos driven by emotion, photos that transport you right back in time to the way it was.
Let me come along-side you as a friend. A trusted friend who will tell your story truthfully and in a creative, beautiful way. If you are looking for someone who is different than your typical “shoot & edit” photographer then I want you to know that you are safe and hope you will feel right place at place with me. Anyone can take beautiful photos, but I believe I can truly tell your story. Your love is an adventure in itself, so let’s capture it together, create some magic, and savor your intimate moments and memories.
