"We are from Cincinnati and got engaged in Winter Park so when we went back out to Colorado we wanted to get our engagement pics done. When looking for a photographer I saw Mikayla’s work and instantly fell in love. From the start Mikayla was great, always responding to emails quickly. She gave us great suggestions on where to do pictures and we ended up with a location that was perfect! My fiancé and I have never had picture done together so we had no idea what we were doing, Mikayla made us both feel extremely comfortable! Our pictures turned out absolutely amazing, I can’t wait to hang them up everywhere. I would 10000% recommend her for everyone and anyone looking for photos!"

Kind words from MY HAPPY couples

"Mikayla, is so down to earth and puts you at ease right away. She is really flexible and is always willing to give suggestions based on your vision. You can tell she really pays attention to angles, lighting, background, etc. She also shoots a variety of different photos--I never feel like I have a bunch of the same picture. We have taken photos with her twice, and we can't wait for her to shoot our wedding! She's basically become our pal, and we will continue to work with her, even after our wedding. Thank you, Mikayla!!"

"Mikayla was such an amazing photographer to work with! She was so easy to communicate with and responded quickly with answers to all my questions. I simply told her a couple of things that I had in mind for our shoot and she did the rest. She totally put us at ease in front of the camera and the outcome was absolutely stunning! Our photographs were better than I could have imagined. The time we spent during our shoot was fun and relaxed. She was so patient and accommodating, as I was nursing an injury and couldn't walk very fast. I can't say enough wonderful things about her. If you are in the Colorado Springs or surrounding areas and need a truly talented photographer, she's the one. You'll be so happy you chose her!"

"We absolutely loved working with Mikayla! She’s super knowledgeable about great places to shoot in Colorado, and she made us feel totally at ease. She had great ideas about what kinds of poses would look best, and none of them felt forced or strange. There was a lot of laughter. Not only did we end up with a variety of truly gorgeous photos (and family keepsakes) but we had a blast together! We feel so lucky to have worked with her!"

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Where are you based?

I'm based in Colorado Springs, Colorado but I photograph all over Colorado and travel anywhere for my couples.

Do you do same-sex weddings?

Absolutely. LGBTQIA+, no matter how you identify and regardless of how you define your relationship, I'd love to be a part of your wedding day. Love is love and I'm 100% here for it!

Do you photograph Big weddings?

I do take on a handful of larger (55+ guest) weddings per year! If that's you, still reach out!

How many photos will I receive?

Industry standard is 50 photos per hour of coverage. I am emotionally attached to every photo I take (lol) so I tend to overdeliver.

How will I receive my photos?

First, I'll send you a handful of sneak peek shots a couple of days after your wedding. 4 to 6 weeks later, you'll receive a link to your online gallery.

How long will it take to receive our photos?

It will take roughly 2 to 3 weeks to receive your final elopement/wedding photos & around 3 weeks for a session. I put a lot of love and care into perfecting each image, which is why it'll take me a little bit more time to deliver your final images. If you'd like your photos sooner, please ask me about the rush fee.

Do you deliver raws?

No.

We are the most awkward couple ever. How will you make us look good in photos? 

First off, let me say that this is not a “photoshoot”. You don’t need to be models! I’m tagging along as a friend with a camera. I’ll make you feel super comfortable, tell you what to do with your hands, and hype you up. I’m good at my job and I promise you’ll love your photos and see yourselves relaxed, happy, and in love. Just show up, and I’ll take care of everything else :)

Do you have a payment plan?

Yes! We can break your payment into thirds.

How involved are you in the planning process? 

With every couple I help make sure you’re prepared for your day, find vendors, locations, and help with timelines. Beyond that, I’m as involved as you want me to be! I mean it when I say you guys can text me whenever!

How do you help us find locations?

I explore Colorado a lot…like a lot. & Not to brag but I’m really good at finding cool places. So, after you book, I’ll ask you what you’ve been dreaming about regarding your location. I want you to tell me if you want a waterfall, a high alpine lake, aspen, etc. Then you’ll tell me if you’re down to hike or you’d rather off-road somewhere cool! THEN! I go through and I find some awesome places based on your preferences and give you a detailed list to choose from.
