Ivy Bencheck Portraits

I reside in this quaint mountain town with my dachshund Remy. I’m an Enneagram 2 if you’re wondering, a helper. “Two’s exemplify the desire to feel loved, to connect with others in a heartfelt way, and to be a source of benevolence and love in our world.” I truly cannot resist a good love story and I will definitely ugly cry when I watch your wedding video. Passion and the light between souls is what drives me, and the love for love keeps me coming back!

When I’m not behind the camera, you can catch me by the snack table, smelling flowers, or petting any random dogs that happen to mosey along by. Since we’re getting real…I try way too hard at being an unsuccessful plant lady, I love cackling at comedy clubs, and I wish so badly that my ukulele skills would transfer to guitar. I’m also drawn towards brunch signs, drag shows, and karaoke. “Love on the Brain” by Rhianna is my go to.

Other than photography and puppies, I’m very passionate about women’s rights, mental health, and love for all. We all deserve a safe space to share love and be ourselves without judgement. If you agree, we’ll be pals, I guarantee it!

I feel so at peace in the great outdoors stargazing, and love doing adventure shoots. I thrive to deliver a new age look on love by bringing the beautiful world and your story together.
