"We would highly recommend working with Mikayla for your engagement and wedding photos! Mikayla worked with my husband and I to find a perfect location for our engagement photos close to Buena Vista. She researched the time for the best lighting and made the whole experience fun for us. She asked ahead of time if her dogs can join on the hike, and they were so cute and well behaved! On our wedding day (at the Breckenridge Nordic Center), [...] Mikayla quickly sent us the sneak peak, which was amazing. Several friends said they were the best wedding photos they've ever seen! Mikayla reached out a few times during the planning process to check in with us if we had any questions or ideas. She was a joy to work with! You won't regret booking your wedding photos with Mikayla."

Keeping it easy-peasy and stress-free
I'm based in Colorado Springs, Colorado but I photograph all over Colorado and travel anywhere for my couples.
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!
Yes! I love them and happy cry with/for you the entire time :)
Industry standard is 50 photos per hour of coverage. I am emotionally attached to every photo I take (lol) so I tend to overdeliver.
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.
It will take roughly 4 to 6 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.
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 :)
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!
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.
