You can call me soph!

Hey, there! My name is Sophie, but feel free to call me "Soph". I'm a Michigander who recently relocated to Colorado. I document weddings, elopements and lifestyle imagery for those who love deeply and appreciate the little things in life. I’m a sentimental, reminisce-on-a -moment-that-happened-years-ago kind of person. I have always found great happiness in getting to know people, and, I mean, REALLY know them: what makes them who they are, whom they love, and how they express that love. Human connection has always inspired me, and I love any and all types of storytelling.

I'm a naturally curious person who loves getting outside to explore. I definitely identify as an introverted-extrovert, and there’s a good chance you’ll catch me smiling the entire time I’m shooting. I try my best not to take life too seriously; sarcasm is a second language to me, and I’m a total goofball at heart. Let’s laugh until we snort, discuss our favorite music, and ponder life’s greatest questions together.

My approach

I get it: Getting your photo taken is awkward. But my goal with each session is to steer away from the awkward and dive into the meaningful, the fun, and the “we-just-felt-like-we-were-hanging-out-with-a-friend” feeling. My background in photojournalism has informed my approach to the work I create. I’m all about slowing down and noticing the fleeting in-between moments. The “smiling-directly-into-the-camera” look and rushing from pose to pose isn’t what lights me up as an artist, so I tend to avoid that. I guide all of my subjects through the session while chit-chatting and listening to music. My favorite thing is when I forget how long we’ve been shooting because of how much fun we’re having together!

Give me your trust and vulnerability, and I will give you in return tangible memories that you’ll be nostalgic about for years to come. When we finish our time together, I want to feel sad that it’s over but grateful, knowing that I got to connect with some beautiful people.

“There are not enough good things that I could say about working with Sophie, but I’ll give it my best shot. Working with her is like working with a friend, and from that first facetime call (where we talked more Pride and Prejudice and hiking than business), I knew that I had gotten so lucky to find her business! Each session was so comfortable and as two people who do not get photographed a ton, her instruction was much needed! Each and every picture we received were not only delivered in a timely manner, but were edited and captured with perfection. Will always and forever more recommended Sophie as a photographer!”
