Although originally from Florida, Kaitlyn’s always been more of a mountain girl at heart. She currently lives in a tiny mountain town outside of Colorado Springs, but dreams of finding a piece of land with a waterfall or creek on the property someday.
The outdoors is one of her big passions – both on and off camera. Not only does Kaitlyn help couples with their adventure wedding plans, but she also captures landscape and wildlife photos, and earned a Masters degree in nature writing from University of Nevada, Reno. Someday, she’ll get around to finishing her memoirs and nature essay book ideas!
Eloping is also what Kaitlyn wished she would have done with her husband back in 2016, although they did have a pretty epic honeymoon adventure: road tripping across the country for six weeks! Now she aims to guide other couples to find a wedding day experience that feels most authentic to them.Hello! I am Valeria.
I’d love to chat with you about documenting your unique day! Each relationship has a different story and I want to authentically capture your wedding in a way that shows your individuality.
Connecting with people and having them feel comfortable with me is one of the most rewarding parts of this job. I’ve been told I’m a warm and calming energy on what can sometimes be a stressful day.
Some wedding day favorites: Unposed moments, pets incorporated into the day in any way, unique and personal touches, starting your own traditions, dance photos
How would you describe your photography style?
My style is a very relaxed and authentic approach with an artistic spin periodically throughout the day. Working with me tends to feel laid back, calming, yet fun and easy going. My editing style is very colorful, vibrant, and creative.
Where did you grow up? How long have you been in Colorado?
I grew up in Florida, but have been in Colorado since 2017.
Sweet or Salty?
Salty all the way!
Favorite genre to read?
Creative nonfiction (mostly nature writing).
What do you like to do in your free time when you’re not working?
Ha, sleeping! But also plenty of exploring, writing, hiking, and drinking tequila or bourbon.
