You'll find me over here patiently waiting and longing to capture each and every moment that matters. I'm passionate about being in nature, the power of laughter shared candidly between couples, and ensuring that stories are heard. My heart is currently captivated by Mary Oliver poetry, my doggo Charlie boy, and the deserts of Moab.

When I'm not traveling the world as an elopement photographer , I call Denver, Colorado home. Rather than going out on a Saturday night you'll find me cuddled on the couch with my dog Charlie watching True Crime. (I'm not proud of it, but I can't stop...OKAY.) Something to know about me is that I believe words and stories have the ability to change the world if we allow them. 

I'm a lover of getting lost in the mountains and stubborn about how I like my black coffee. The desire of my heart is to ensure that those around me are seen, heard, and loved. I'm simply on a mission to capture the stories that are unfolding around me and I hope yours is one of them. 

I'm an adventure seeking, road trip taking, sipping on strong black coffee kinda girl.

My Favorite Place:

Anyone can capture an incredible photo, but it requires time, talent, and experience to capture a story. As an elopement + intimate wedding photographer, I'm motivated to represent the stories of my couples with authenticity and rawness.

You won't find me posing you in an unnatural way that makes you look or feel uncomfortable. If it looks unnatural, it's probably because it is. Rather I believe in creating an experience that causes you to forget that I'm there at all. 

Because at the end of the day that's what we're all longing for isn't it? To live life fully here and now and have memories to hold when we're old and gray. If you're looking for a storyteller to capture your story in the truest form possible, I'm your girl. If you're looking for an adventure that allows you the opportunity to soak in every moment without stress or worry, eloping is for you.

I BELIEVE THE MOST BEAUTIFUL MOMENTS IN LIFE ARE SIMPLE AND LONGING TO BE CAPTURED.

MEANING BEHIND THE NAME, AMONG THE PINES

WHEN I AM AMONG THE TREES
by Mary Oliver

When I am among the trees,
especially the willows and the honey locust,
equally the beech, the oaks and the pines,
they give off such hints of gladness.
I would almost say that they save me, and daily.

I am so distant from the hope of myself,
in which I have goodness, and discernment,
and never hurry through the world
but walk slowly, and bow often.

Around me the trees stir in their leaves
and call out, “Stay awhile.”
The light flows from their branches.

And they call again, “It’s simple,” they say,
“and you too have come
into the world to do this, to go easy, to be filled
with light, and to shine.”

The world is moving quickly and as humans we just might miss our lives if we don't stop and stay awhile. 
Mary Oliver's poetry reminds us of our need for nature and the joy that comes from sitting and breathing in beautiful places. I always inform those around me that I'm a human first, photographer second. I would be doing a disservice to you as a fellow human and friend if I didn't encourage you to experience the moment you're in here and now.

How can we each be more present with the ones we love? How can we protect the earth so that our children's children can experience our favorite places? How can we step away from distractions, find beauty in our day to day, and give grace back to those we encounter? 

I don't have all the answers to these questions but I'm searching for them daily. When I Am Among The Trees reminds me of joy that comes from slowing down, staying awhile, and being grateful for the life we've been given.

With well over 100 million visitors on more than 10 billion outings in the U.S. each year, our love for the outdoors can take a toll. Impacted areas suffer from litter, invasive species, habituated wildlife, trail erosion, polluted water sources and more. While most of us don’t intend to harm our natural surroundings, we may lack the knowledge to preserve it, or we’re simply overlooking a few important behaviors. Simply put, Leave No Trace highlights best practices we should follow to enjoy and protect our natural spaces.

the earth is beautiful, and i'm committed to protecting it.

Client Praise

CHLOE + CONNER

Brooke is professional, prepared, and provides all the peace of mind that a bride needs on her wedding day. Because of our conversations leading up to the day, I had no doubt that she would capture every important moment and more. Throughout the day, she was present and helpful, but never overbearing or controlling. She beautifully captured the moments that happened naturally & her experience allowed for insight and ideas that I wouldn't have thought to ask for but that I'll now cherish forever! She is flexible, understanding, and patient, and looking back, we can't imagine our day without her. If you are looking for someone to capture your wedding day, or just any day, Brooke is your girl. She goes above and beyond to serve her clients, and she is absolutely gifted at what she does.

"SHE GOES ABOVE AND BEYOND TO SERVE HER CLIENTS, and she is absolutely gifted at what she does."

Emily + Nick

Brooke is hands down the most talented photographer I have ever met in my entire life. I gave her my inspiration and she took it and made it into something entirely unique and beautiful. Brooke was able to work with my budget and offer me options. Along with all of this, she was always there to communicate with me from ideas to concerns. The day of never goes as planned, she was thrown curveball after curveball and dodged them all with ease. The photos we received memorialized the best day of our lives and we are forever grateful for the beautiful artwork she created.

"we are forever grateful for the beautiful artwork she created."

ERICA & ZACH

Brooke was booked to do our wedding June 6th. However, the virus hit and we were afraid we wouldn’t be able to have our wedding in June so we decided to go ahead and get married with just our parents there. I called Brooke and told her our plans and literally we were getting married in a week and she was so quick to say yes and capture our day for us. She helped make our day very special. She was super fun and made Zach and I feel very comfortable. I got my pictures back and I felt so overjoyed to see the happiness and love I felt on that day. Even though we didn’t have our wedding like we planned, it was still very special and brooke was a big hand in that. She truly captured some very special memories that I will have for the rest of my life. 

"SHE TRULY CAPTURED SOME VERY SPECIAL MEMORIES THAT I WILL HAVE FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE."

"Our wedding was in Kentucky in September. Brooke not only traveled for us but made a custom package for us because we had a unique situation. She took pictures the day before, and just seemed to be in the right place at the right time. She met with me before the wedding and we communicated a few times up to the wedding about my specific requests, and she hit the nail on the head. I am so very thankful for Brooke's story-telling, organic nature. She captured our wedding for exactly what it was and what I will remember it to be...full of joy, laughter, love and hope for the future!"

"I AM SO VERY THANKFUL FOR BROOKE'S storytelling, organic nature."
