Bonnie is a Scottish word for beautiful. Having this name has encouraged me to see the beauty in everything. Born and raised in Boulder, CO, I’ve always had a travel bug and a passion for art. I specialize in outdoor portraits using natural and staged lighting. My editing style is bold and vibrant. You’ll find that my client interactions and photography reflect the high value I place on family, honesty, intelligence (I am a Ravenclaw after all), and humor. My other roles include the luckiest wife in the world and dog momma.
Even as a small child, my parents made sure to instill in me a love for viewing and creating art. This life-long immersion in the art world inspired me to pursue an art degree for part of my undergraduate career at Colorado State University (although I ended up with a BA in International Studies and a minor in history). As I sought a place to study history for my master’s degree, I made sure to find a place that would encourage and foster my artistic side. I traveled to Norwich, UK to get my MA in Modern European History at the University of East Anglia. I chose UEA for its dedication to the arts and the rigor of its Slavic studies program. My coursework there focused on art and literature in the Soviet Union and I wrote my dissertation on Soviet Cinema. It was at this time that I bought my first DSLR camera because my point and shoot offered nowhere near the amount of artistic control I desired over my images.
I now feel at home as a wedding photographer in Colorado. I own my own business, I'm following my passion, and I love it!

Bonnie & Mike, We can't thank you enough for making our wedding weekend so incredibly special. Besides being kick-ass photographers :), you both are the most fun, thoughtful, and generally awesome people, and we've had such a great time getting to know you. Thank you for our amazing pre-wedding surprise box... that was such a perfect way to spend our evening, and we really appreciate you sneaking that over to us :) And thank you for all the million little ways you helped our day go smoothly, and of course, for capturing it all for us. I hope we can stay in touch moving forward! :) <3 Kae & Reid
