I value traditions but I reeeeeally love a dash of unconventional once in awhile. I believe in dessert before dinner, self care = a long walk with my pup along the lakeshore, and if I were to choose any cuisine to eat the rest of my life, it would hands down be Mexican food. There better be churros, tamales, and nachos at my wedding, just saying. I make it a point to be a shoulder to lean on and a reliable resource for my family, friends, and couples to turn to.
I believe that there needs to be a plan A, plan B, and a back-up plan for the back-up plan. I like to be prepared but that doesn't mean I am a negative Nancy. No way Josè. I come prepped and ready with a positive outlook and a smile on my face at all times. I like to laugh and have a good time. Hence, why I love weddings so much. How can you NOT be smiling the whole time?

After a road-trip through Europe, I fell in love with the art of photography. Once I returned home, I began posting trip photos and got a lot of attention from my friends and family. Inspiration was sparked and I started offering family sessions to friends. The positive feedback continued and I was thriving! I have always been one to work hard at what I believe in, so I did just that. I haven't looked back since. I love what I do and the people that it connects me with. I am so lucky to be doing something I love each day.
On an average day you can find me cuddled up with my two cats or my fluffy pup, watching trash tv (I can't be the only one, right?) and diving in fist deep into a carton of Jeni's ice cream. I also appreciate the outdoors and enjoy going on hikes and long walks in nature (Denver here we come!).

Hi there!

I'm gavyn

It's no secret that I'm animal obsessed. My own animals are no exception. Emmy and Espy are our two chonky kitties and Graham is our Bernese Mountain Dog. Still working on adding chickens and goats. A girl can dream.

Earthy tones


My current wardrobe is proof that I am loving all the burnt oranges, browns, and deep greens. I'm basically a walking color palette of Joshua Tree National Park.  

jenis ice cream


If you've never had it, you are MISSING out. If thats the case, please let me know and I'll be sure that our initial meeting includes waffle cones and the best ice cream on the planet. 
Wildberry Lavendar is heavenly.

Emmy + Espy + Graham


I'm not sure how I got so lucky to be with one of the most selfless and loving human beings on this planet but here we are! Fun fact: we photographed our very first wedding together the first month we started dating.
