I am wedding and elopement photographer based out of Buena Vista, Colorado! My family and I absolutely love living in the Arkansas River Valley surrounded by the collegiate peaks.

You can find me out in nature playing with my family and making memories.  Teaching my kids to ski and mountain bike, taking them to the hot springs, rafting, driving to mexico together and playing at the beach.

I'm terrible at small talk, and I doubt that my coffee preferences really matter to you, so let's skip to the good stuff. It's a little weird to try and introduce myself to strangers over the internet, but here we are, so I'll give it a shot.

Hi!  I'm Daylene!

About me

Human connection
Experience over production

My Approach

I am focused on quality over quantity.  I'd rather shoot 10 weddings where it feels like I was meant to be there than 100 weddings that don't feel right. I will be fully invested in you and your day, and that happens when we mesh and have the same vision. Your photos will be uniquely yours because I'm focused on you. I will give you the best, personalized experience before, during, and after your wedding day. I want to give my couples everything I've got, so I limit what I take and who I work with.

To be completely honest, I'm not like all the rest.

I feel deeply and love big. I’m opinionated but also free spirited . I love the art and craft of photography and have been shooting weddings for over a decade. I am kind and friendly, but I’m also a straight - shooter who doesn’t take anyone’s shit. How’s that for an intro? Ha!

We might not know each other yet, but I'm an open book and pretty quick to make friends.
