Meet michaela

- michaela

Since then, we've traveled around the world exploring new places, eating delicious food, and documenting love stories for couples and families. We turned clients into friends and felt our community grow throughout the years because of them. 

My love for photography has brought me everywhere from the rolling hills in West Virginia to the mountains in Wyoming. But regardless of where I travel, the endless trails and salt water breeze of Juneau will always be my home. 

I was born and raised in the coastal city of Juneau, Alaska and after marrying my husband Justin, we moved out to beautiful Southeast Idaho. 

I believe in real moments and jumping into the ocean. In the kinds of images that remind you of the joy that can be found in the simplest of moments together. I believe in images that are itching to be printed, placed in beautiful frames and hung on walls for years to come. 

I began capturing images at the age of 17 when I discovered my dad's old camera in the closet. The limitless possibility of what could be documented taught me to slow down and really observe the beauty in the world, and the people around me.

Whenever I pick up my camera, I strive to create beautiful and emotional images that tell a story and showcase the beauty of both the people in the images and the world around them. 

Even with it's ups and downs, your life, your story, are beautiful and I can't wait to create images to show that!

OUR CLIENTS HAVE THE SWEETEST THINGS TO SAY

always within

arms reach

There was never a time in my life when a camera wasn't within arms reach. I remember my grandparents documenting each step we took at their house and my parents capturing even the simplest of moments throughout our childhood. I knew from a young age that I wanted that and years later, I realized that I wanted to do that for other people. 
Photos have a way of reminding us of the strength, courage and hope that reside in all of us the way few other things can. They have a way of pausing time and showing us all that we are missing as we hurry by with each day. Even now, my camera is nearly always within arms reach because each season deserves to be documented. I have found such joy in doing that for not just my family but those who trust me to document theirs.
