"If Josie is available, book her. That’s my advice! Working with Josie was like working with a friend. She was so personable and her passion for her art shines through so profoundly... I cannot even describe how natural she made us feel. If you are someone who thinks you always look awkward in photos (me!), do not worry. She easily directs you and makes the process so natural and enjoyable...
We had a small wedding, and her help was invaluable... On the day of the wedding, she showed up early and was somehow able to document SO much of the day... I don’t know how she did it all. After the ceremony, she took charge and again offered amazing direction while taking group shots of us with family and friends. Everyone that was there still tells me how amazing Josie is.
We have so so many incredible photos to remind us of our wedding trip, and I can NOT say enough about Josie and her talent and professionalism through it all. She stays in constant contact throughout (and sends the sweetest care packages!) and made the process so much less stressful, for which I am so grateful!"

"Josie ensured my entire wedding day was stunning. She makes you feel like you've been friends for years, is a natural connector and an incredible artist. Our entire family, bridal party, friends felt so comfortable and welcomed around her. She captured our entire day perfectly and 3 years later our friends, family, and strangers still rave about how beautiful our wedding was and how amazing our photographer is. I am so grateful she is a part of our adventure and so perfectly captured the memories of that day."

"I could say 100 million wonderful things about Josie. To begin, my husband and I are from IL, and we decided to elope to CO. Being states away, it was difficult to wedding plan. I found Josie through searching hashtags on instagram.. her photos blew me away right when I saw them. When I reached out to her, she was extremely kind and professional. She helped us in SO many aspects such as finding a location, vendor suggestions, dealing with us changing our wedding date and location a few times, choosing a time to begin the ceremony, and more. She sent us the cutest gifts before and after the wedding too!
On the wedding day, she made us feel amazing. We consider ourselves awkward in front of the camera, but she made us feel like we were perfect on our perfect day. Everyone compliments our wedding photos and says they are the best they have ever seen because of the color, clarity, and amazing background. Additionally, her prices are very affordable! Overall, everything went so smooth and I literally cannot stress enough how amazing she is! 1000/10 recommend!"

"My wife and I hired Josie for our wedding day and she took the most authentic photos. There is a specific sequence of photos that make us cry, laugh, and giggle every time we look at them. She has a talent to capture every true moment. She focused on us and the importance of our union as a same-sex couple. She gently guides you if she wants to capture a specific shot and makes the entire process fun.
She provides high-quality photos and edits in the most natural way. Josie is kind and friendly and willing to go above and beyond for a great shot. My wife and I highly recommend Josie, and encourage you to book her for all your special moments."

"Josie was a fantastic photographer for our last minute elopement in Colorado! Long story short, we had a big wedding planned like so many other couples but ended up postponing because of the pandemic. We decided we still wanted to get married this year and within ~1 month planned a small elopement for just the two of us. We booked Josie as our photographer and we're so glad that we did!! The photos came out SO beautiful. But, more than that, she was so easy to work with and gave us great direction. She also went above and beyond helping us figure out a back-up location when our original plan (RMNP) was no longer an option because of the fires in Colorado. We would recommend Josie 1000%"

"We will forever be grateful for the moments Josie captured for us on our wedding day. As a couple who doesn’t enjoy being in front of the camera lens we were shocked to see how amazing we did look in her photos! She didn’t have to photoshop our awkwardness out because she so naturally helped us pose and made us feel comfortable as she snapped away. Not only is she a great vendor, but she is also a wonderful person. We liked her immediately as we sat down the first time to discuss what moments we were hoping to capture at our wedding. We got those moments and so much more!
She is adept at reading the room and finding that candid shot, but also being able to capture the beauty of an outdoor landscape. We now have such a beautiful collection of wedding photos documenting special moments with friends and family, and also naturally stunning portraits of my husband and I framed by mountain landscapes. She helped make our wedding day more enjoyable and fun. We can’t say enough good things about our wedding photos by Josie!"
