As I celebrate 10 years in business, my heart is so full of gratitude…gratitude for God’s leading, my incredible clients, and friends & family who believed in me; your love and support has meant the world!!! You have made my little dream of capturing memories as a hobby, become a full-time career of documenting people’s lives as a professional wedding and portrait photographer. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! The support of this small community has been tremendous, and so many of my clients have become friends through the years; how lucky am I?! Truly, thank you. From the bottom of my heart. When you support local businesses like mine, you support our livelihood, our children and our families!
As business has grown, my dreams & vision have grown too. Studio renovations began in December 2015, but shortly afterward I was diagnosed with a rare, large (benign) vascular tumor behind my knee. And so began a year of trips to Denver, multiple surgeries (9 and counting), difficult recoveries and dreams put on hold. Temporarily, that is. ;-) Although my plan was an early 2016 launch, God had other ideas. I’ve learned that He’s in charge, not me (thank goodness) and so…the time is now!!! And I couldn’t be more excited!!!!

Big baby blues, cheeky toddler smiles, mishaps and laughter – I love photographing families! And it’s even better when I am lucky and blessed enough to photograph the beginning of a family with an engagement, then their wedding, and then their sweet babies arriving on the scene. Seriously, I love that part of my job so much!!!! Matt and Denise, thank you for choosing me to document your beautiful life…tooth chipping, rescheduling and all, it was so worth it! ;)
It just doesn’t get any better than having our beautiful Big Horn Mountains as your backdrop! Oh how I love my home – the beauty, the fresh mountain air, the changing of the seasons, the wide open spaces. These two are having a destination wedding here next summer (who wouldn’t dream of getting married surrounded by this…), and I can hardly wait to celebrate with them!!! #bighornmountains #alissaferullophotography #soinlove #fall #ilovewyoming #eatonsranch
Some love stories are a little like fairytales, and this one certainly had a magical feel and vibe that was palpable to everyone around them. These two are meant for each other! I’ve loved getting to know this couple, working with them to create their day photographically and documenting the memories leading up to it!! Mallory and Kolby, you have something so special. I wish you a lifetime of love and memories and happy times together!!!!
Thank you for letting me capture your beginning as a family!!! xoxo

Sometimes you meet two people that inspire you to believe in love; to believe that love truly can conquer all as they say. These two did that for me…their love story unlike any other I’ve seen in all the years I’ve been shooting weddings. Many in our community already know their story and have supported this sweet family through some tough times, and I know they are so grateful. I figured it would be best to let Katie, the beautiful bride, tell her story
in her own words….
“Walking down the aisle with my dad holding my arm, I could only think about how thankful I was to be healthy for my wedding day as well as to be able to marry my best friend. It was a huge rush of joy as I flashed back to the day Tyler proposed to me and the journey we had survived the past year.
“I was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer the fall of 2014, and I would have to endure 8 chemotherapy treatments, surgery to remove the 7 centimeter tumor, and then radiation. Tyler was the reason I was able to fight so hard for our wedding day as well as for our future life together because he proposed the morning of my first chemotherapy treatment. I perfectly remember that morning. I was frantically packing my bag for the hospital and Tyler continued to ask me to sit down to what I thought was going to be a “pep talk”: some encouragement to get me through what I thought was going to be the worse day of my life. I was extremely nervous for my first treatment. When Tyler finally began to talk, he discussed how life takes twists and turns and how we could beat this disease together, how he would be by my side through all of it, how I am the strongest person he knows…It was then that he looked in to my eyes, got down on one knee, and turned what was going to be the worst day of my life in to the best day of my life. He asked if I would spend the rest of my life with him, and I said YES! I was literally up in the clouds and overjoyed. I breezed through my first chemotherapy like it was nothing.
“The rest of the year the wedding was a bright spot to focus on for all of our families. Tyler and I, my parents, my sister, and friends threw themselves into wedding planning. It was all of our escape from the cancer treatment. So walking down the aisle, I looked into Tyler’s eyes- the man that let me cry in his arms when I woke up in the morning to clumps of hair all over the bed, the man who sat by me through my treatments, the man who held my hand extra tight when my oncologist gave us bad news, and the man who loved me more than I could ever have asked from another human being. I was simply thankful-thankful for him and my family but mostly thankful for the fact that I survived it all for our wedding day.”
“Our first look was so emotional! Walking up to Tyler, I was shaking; I couldn’t calm my nerves until my hands touched him. He was the most handsome man and he was mine…”
“The wedding ceremony was beautiful. Shelley at Born in a Barn set up an area for us after the ceremony where we serrated a bottle of champagne to celebrate with our wedding party. We were surrounded by horses, antique cars and furniture, chickens, and laughter.”
“The reception went by so fast…our favorite moment of the night was the longest-married-couple dance where we saw three of our grandparents be the last ones dancing.”
“My parents along with family and friends really put lots of time in to making this wedding gorgeous for Tyler and me. And it was. I had the wedding I had dreamed about, but more importantly a husband that I know was going to be beside me in sickness and in health. ~Katie”
Thank you both, Tyler and Katie, from the bottom of my heart for allowing me to be a part of your celebration and to document your memories!! Also thank you for your patience in getting this up – you know my medical situation and I appreciate that you have been so kind. So much love to you both!! xoxoxo

This beauty and I go several years back now – she actually used to babysit my tiny people when she was in college, and as we got to know each other, our common love of family, kids, God and photography led to one of those easy, lifelong friendships. She is also a pro photographer, and an amazing one at that, so through the years we’ve spent countless hours talking shop, sharing ideas and shooting together. Our wedding photography adventures have been full of comedy, stress, growth and so many fun memories. ;-) Last summer, the kids and I took a road trip to their ranch in NE, and my kids loved getting to ride ponies, chase the chickens, attempt to milk the goat, ha, and just run around in the wide open spaces. And this year we met up in SD to do a quick morning session downtown Rapid with her adorable crew. ;-) I think it’s fair to say they make some crazy cute babies!!!
I’m still laughing at the one above, and even more so of the one below…everyone needs a little yoga in their life, right?
And just because she’s so darn beautiful on the outside too…
Thanks again you two for meeting up with me and letting me capture your gorgeous family!!! Always a pleasure! And Chelsie, I shall be seeing you in Vegas here soon!!!!!!!!! :-) XOXO
