I love getting to know my couples so that I can give you a personal experience that allows you to feel comfortable and relaxed. Not only will this make your time with me a lot more enjoyable, but when it feels like you’re hanging out with an old friend, you’re more likely to let loose and be your true selves and that is what I want to capture.
Let’s dance on mountain tops, run in a field of wildflowers, watch the sun go down from above tree line + go wherever else your hearts lead you. I capture the way the moment feels so you can feel it over + over again for years to come.

These are definitely some of my favorite sessions because it’s our chance to let loose, explore and enjoy nature. You don't need to be engaged or have a specific event to celebrate, you two just get to flirt and run around while I’m capturing you and telling you how adorable you are! Planning to propose? I can’t wait to help you plan the surprise of a lifetime!
Not seeing something that suits you? Don't fret, contact me so we can curate a collection that works for you & your day!
Let’s explore together! Whether you’re newly engaged or simply desire some professional photos together, the concept is simple, you choose something you love doing together and I capture it.
Here are some ideas for your Adventure Session:
4x4 to a beautiful location, Go for a Hike + Picnic, Explore a Quiet Mountain Town, Go SUP on an Alpine Lake, Ski or Snowboard … options are endless
*available for traveling within one hour from Vail. if interested in traveling beyond vail, travel fees will be applied.
Wanting to ensure you get all those dreamy photos of you and your love on your special day but not sure the timeline will allow for it?
I always recommend adding a Bridal or First Look session to your wedding package! We’ll choose a STUNNING location and go out to capture photos of you in your formal wedding attire separate from your wedding day. This gives you the choice of the best lighting, no rushed timelines, and we can plan around unpredictable weather!
While I specialize in elopements and intimate/adventure weddings, I am always happy to have a conversation with a couple who loves my work but is planning to celebrate their love with all of their family & friends. Please reach out and let's chat to see if we are a good fit - I will never say no to a couple I absolutely feel a connection with! If you are interested in having me capture your day and you plan to have over 50 guests, I do require you to have a professional day-of coordinator.
NO WAY! Wanting to have a stunning elopement or adventure session location doesn't have to mean suffering for five miles through the wilderness. (Though, if you're down then SO AM I!) I know plenty of gorgeous spots, both well known and hidden gems that are VERY easily accessible, some even drive-to! Whether you envision eloping in Iceland or in the backyard of your airbnb cabin, I'll be there to capture the emotions, scenery, and story of your day.
Whitney is your gal. Even before we signed a contract she talked with me for an hour on how she would make the entire photography experience fun, easy, and effortless.We just got our engagement album back and I can confidently say she delivered on all aspects. Whitney’s communication skills are impeccable, her knowledge of stunning/adventurous locations cannot be beat, and best of all she made us feel so comfortable!
Whitney is an amazing photographer with an amazing eye. I am not the most comfortable in front of a camera and she made me feel like a queen. She was full of poses, prompts, and sweet ideas to capture my fiancé and I. Whitney is so personable, and we felt so comfortable we hired her to fly out to our wedding in Indiana. A photographer turned life long friend, and I couldn’t be any happier.
We hired Whitney to shoot our July wedding in Park City, UT. She blew us away with the results! She was very organized, professional, and detail oriented. She made many suggestions to honor my mother who passed away, it was very special. I highly recommend Whitney for a wedding, engagement shoot or any other photo opportunities. We have so many amazing pictures from our special day to choose from. It was a fairy tale and the pictures tell the story!
Whitney did a fantastic job for our engagement shoot. Mother Nature was throwing us a curve ball without giving us our dreamy snowy idea. However, Whitney was super quick to come up with an even better site that provided us with some stunning lake backdrops. Being in front of the camera is usually awkward for anyone but Whitney made us laugh and feel comfortable in that awkwardness. The photos turned out gorgeous and I’m still swooning! We can’t wait to have her capture our wedding!
We absolutely love Whitney! She was so helpful through our indecisiveness and awkwardness and created a great atmosphere to ensure we had fun during our engagement shot. Even my fiancé who was dreading the entire day had a great time and as soon as we were done he said "we have to have Whitney at our wedding." That was before we even saw the absolutely stunning photographs she took for us. I can't recommend Whitney enough.
