Before you share your story...

Hi there - I'm Sierra! To me, photography is one of the most important content streams, because of the value it holds from generation to generation. We've all had a relative share a photo telling us about a time when... and what a gift I feel it is to be able to capture that moment in time for future generations.

I currently live in Vail, Colorado and when I am not out photographing or working at my desk, I am enjoying the beautiful outdoors or doing something with friends. I sincerely value community.

Testimonials
husband and wife kiss in vail colorado with mountain view
It was easy to trust Sierra with my engagement as well as wedding photos! She went above and beyond both times but especially during our wedding weekend! Our pictures turned out stunning and I couldn’t be happier with them, they are literally perfect! I told Sierra what I wanted and what I was envisioning and she did exactly that! She truly captured memories that will last a life time!

husband and wife kiss in vail colorado with mountain view
Sierra was great!! We had a pretty good idea of a lot of the combinations of people we wanted pictures of and with but Sierra took it to a whole different level. She was kind, patient, professional, flexible, knowledgeable and efficient. But most importantly, she is an excellent photographer and captures the special, unforgettable moments perfectly. When I look at the pictures they make me feel the same way I felt when she took them! All our friends and family felt the same about their experience!

We get so many compliments on the photos Sierra has taken of us. She is professional, personal, and wonderful to work with. Not only is she an expert behind the camera, but she's also excellent at making you feel comfortable in front of it. From start to finish, Sierra will capture moments you'll love forever.

Sierra was an absolute pleasure to work with! We chose her for our wedding at Maroon Bells and what a great decision it was. She felt like an old friend, was so helpful, patient and made us feel so comfortable throughout the process. She provided sneak peaks of some amazing photos and the turn around time for the entire gallery was fast! Sierra truly captured our love on our magical day and we would absolutely work with her again.

Sierra did a family shoot for my husband and our three pups, and let me tell you, she captured our little family perfectly. Sierra made us feel perfectly at ease with her and she got the most amazing photos of us! She knows how to give cues and posed us in the best ways. Turnaround time was so quick and our photos are truly timeless. We will definitely be using her again for all our future photo needs!

FAQ

How long does it typically take for you to edit and deliver the final photos?

For family sessions, 2-3 weeks, For engagement sessions, 3-4 weeks, for weddings and elopements, 4-6 weeks!

Do you ever provide custom quotes?

Of course! If you send me an inquiry, I am happy to send you my pricing guide. If your needs are something different, I am more than happy to come up with a custom quote!

Where are you located and do you travel?

I am currently based in Vail, Colorado but love to travel. I am happy to meet you wherever your big day is!

How do we get our photos back?

I use a software called Pixieset, which will send a link right to your email. In that link you can download all photos directly to your desktop. On this same link you can buy photos from your gallery, and continuously come back here for photo storage up to a year after your wedding!

We feel incredibly awkward in front of a camera....

That is no problem at all. I think unless you are a model by profession, someone else taking pictures of you is super uncomfortable. I pride myself in making the people in front of my camera feel comfortable and at ease...and hopefully laughing and having fun! I promise the photos are worth it.

Can we meet you before our wedding or session?

I am more than happy to jump on a phone call, zoom call or if you are in the area, I am happy to meet up with you in person (within the Vail Valley).

What is your photography style?

As far as wedding goes, I would describe my style as candid, documentary and fine art. For getting ready, cocktail hour, and the reception: candid, for the ceremony: documentary, and for the portraits, fine art.

Will you work with us to create a shot list or timeline for the day?

Absolutely. I do ask my couples to come up with a family shot list, but everything else we will work together on, and if you have a planner, I will work closely with them as well!
