behind the lens

As a photographer I consider myself a "person-centered photographer". Every image should be centered around you and the people that you love. I always prioritize the best lighting, best posing, and best time of day for portraits. I put my clients first and always create joy filled moments to capture. 

Hello and Welcome! My name is Mindy and I am a wedding and portrait photographer for the Colorado western slope. I have been trained by, and assisted in weddings with, award winning wedding photographers from Utah, Tennessee, and Arizona. I am a 26 year old mother, wife, and believer. I love playing the guitar, eating pumpkin pie (even in April), and shopping with my mom. 

my favorite things

To me, photography is all about JOY.

My family! We have two boys and one more on the way! I love being a Mother.

Flowers! I would love it if every single day I had a vase filled with flowers in my home 

One hour before the sunset is my FAVORITE time to take portraits!

"Mindy is a FANTASTIC photographer. Our family pictures turned out beautifully, and she was so patient with my two little kids. Mindy was very efficient at giving us directions for different poses, so the photo shoot went smoothly and quickly. (Very important because we took our pictures in falling snow... burrr!) She made sure I received all the poses I asked for, which was really important to me. I recommend her highly!!"

"Mindy was the BEST wedding photographer we could have asked for! She was so personable with our family and everyone commented on her friendly and outgoing personality. We had a pretty sticky family situation between our two families which she handled very professionally and with ease. Our pictures are GORGEOUS and she helped us feel very relaxed and comfortable during the shoots. She had a fast turn around time with editing and did a great job of taking charge of our huge crowd and getting the pictures taken very quickly. Highly recommended for any bride to be!!!!"

"Mindy is the best photographer I’ve ever worked with!! She made me feel so comfortable and confident in front of the camera during my engagement session. I received my pictures back so fast and I loved how she edited them to look so natural. I was also surprised by how many pictures she got back to me. My husband and I are going to cherish these photos forever. I recommend her to everyone!! Totally worth every penny."

"From the very beginning and through the entire process leading up to the big day, Mindy was my girl in my corner. As my husband and I faced the task of planning, paying,a nd figuring out all the tedious tasks that goes along with planning a wedding, Mindy helped guide us through the important parts of making sure our big orchestrated best day of our lives were captured forever and captured perfectly. She asked the right questions. She understood the style we were going for and even when the weather was looking rather iffy and could start hailing any second, she was able to be quick but made everyone feel comfortable in front of the camera. It took me awhile to print out our wedding photos and a huge reason was due to that was because there were SO MANY good ones to choose from. Her coloring was lovely and added that perfect day to get married vibes. We couldn't have asked for a better photographer!
