Hi! I'm Shea. I'm a wedding photographer that loves photographing weddings and elopements all over the beautiful state of Colorado, as well as all over the world! I was born in Denver but moved to the midwest when I was very young. However, I always felt at home when I came to visit Colorado so I knew I would move back here one day. I've been in Colorado for just over three years now and I love everything that this beautiful state has to offer!

- FUN FACTS ABOUT ME -
In college, I drove from Iowa to Pennsylvania to be an extra in a movie with Matt Damon and John Krasinski. Have you seen "Promised Land"?

When I'm not taking pictures you can find me in the mountains hiking or camping!

I got married in November to the most wonderful human. I now know what you all are going through and am more understanding than ever when it comes to wedding planning! ;)

I backpacked Europe for 3 months after college and ended up living in Spain for a year teaching English afterward!

I've always felt like I am more of a dog person, but Jacob and I adopted a cat named Ophelia and I have officially become one of those crazy cat ladies.

Every year I travel somewhere new. My most recent trips include Machu Picchu, South Africa, and Ireland. I love traveling and trying new things! This year we are going to Costa Rica!

My favorite bands/musicians include Maggie Rogers, Gregory Alan Isakov, Nathaniel Rateliff and the Nightsweats, The Lumineers, and Johnnyswim

I have been vegan for over two years!

I've won two contests in my life so far: a coloring contest in 5th grade and a grape stomping contest at the Iowa State Fair!

Jacob and I love to swing dance! We started taking lessons last year and had fun swing dancing for our first dance at our wedding in November!

I have played piano for 24 years!
