Hi friends! My name is Autumn. I’m a wedding and elopement photographer based in beautiful Utah. I soak up as much inspiration as I can from the beautiful nature I’m so lucky to live near. Photography has such a huge place in my heart. I love capturing that magical connection between two people and taking photos that capture them and their relationship in the truest form. So excited to be here and help you guys learn!
