I’m Dylan. I live in Boulder, Colorado with my fiance. We grew up outside of Philadelphia and moved to Colorado to climb (him) and follow the love of my life (me). I’m an oldest child and a Pisces, if that matters to you. Heck, maybe that's why I ended up a self-employed creative. I love to read and hike and create art. I eat and drink the best food I can get my hands on, from oysters to homemade bread. I’m a horrible dancer who loves dance floors, and I’m hoping you’ll ask me to meet at a brewery for your photography consultation.
I specialize in wedding photography. My approach is modern, my editing is classic. I want the final images to look like a real memory: faithfully edited to recall what the day was like but better, with the same glow that nostalgia infuses our memories with. I want the experience to be fun and I like to reassure you and offer direction and I like to be silly with you. I strive to be aware of when to be more hands on, and when to back off. When posing I aim to flatter and I won’t just tell you how to pose - I’ll show you. My photography will pass through generations without becoming dated or marked by trendiness. I value Authenticity, Inclusivity, Simplicity, and Adventure. I want to be your photographer.
If you're hooked already, jump on down to my contact form, or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you want to learn more before deciding, here's a few facts about me:
I'm a morning person. Not only that, but humble brag: I switched to decaf two years ago. I still like to go for a walk in the mornings for a decaf americano. I always bring my reusable mug. I drink it for the flavor.
Who else is obsessed with their cats? My fiancé has described me as combination of a helicopter parent and a crazy cat lady when it comes to my Humane Society boys Han and Tywin. It's a hell of a 180 because when Marc and I met in high school, I couldn't stand cats. Now they have their own highlight on my Instagram stories.
I'm certified to teach yoga. I trained up in Boulder after practicing for 17 years.
If you want to get me talking, casually mention stretching and how good it feels... and I'll be off.
Travel, travel, travel. I started traveling internationally when I was young, studied abroad twice in college, and learned photography at a monastery in France. Whenever my bank account allows it (and even when it doesn't) I'm booking flights. If I wasn't a photographer I'd be a travel agent.
Not your typical Coloradoan. I live in the mountains, but prefer being by the ocean or wandering a European city. I didn't do a "hike" until I was 20 years old, and I have never owned a pair of hiking boots. But even if you're more likely to find me in heels than hiking boots, and despite the fact that I'm far from your classic Boulderite, I love the place I call home - and I'd love to share it with you.
