I was the kid who’d pretend to cover my eyes during kisses in movies, but I’d really be peeking through my fingers. I’m a self-proclaimed expert in positive attitudes and good vibes - you’ll see what I mean.
My grandpa was my favorite person growing up, and when he passed away of course I was sad, but more importantly I remember being so fascinated with how deep his smile lines were. I was there when he passed and when I asked my grandma about the lines on his face she told me that “grandpa lived a happy and fulfilled life.” That really stuck with me. My number one goal in life is to be so happy and fulfilled with my life that when gravity takes over my face I have deeper smile lines than he did. And I am well on my way with every elopement and micro-wedding I get the privilege of documenting. Be prepared for me to be cheesin’ the ENTIRE time!
I’ve always been creatively minded and had a deep love for true connection between humans, the ones that give you butterflies and make you giddy. I believe at the end of the day, these connections, even the smallest ones, are what mean the most. Life is filled with these tiny moments and the fact that I get to capture them, stop time, and hand them onto you to be remembered forever means more than you may ever know.
I believe that being part of your wedding doesn’t start and stop with day-of coverage. I’m fully invested in you and your story. I’m pretty much going to be part of the family from here on out! Maybe sometimes as your wild aunt who cries at every one of your successes and maybe as a cool cousin who looks up to you and thinks you're a badass at everything you do. I’m a gemini, so give me a break.
Because my heart is in the backcountry. It's in the mountains, it's on the beach, it's in the forest, and it's in the ocean. It's all around in nature; where I like to spend my time getting lost.
I've always been unconventional. I'm the youngest of four and I've always done things my way. I'm not good at following the rules or listening to authorities, but I am really, really good at having fun and seeing the world through an artistic lens.

What I love most is the nitty-gritty real shit. I’m not here to pose you in some unrealistic way, to go through the motions of the day, or just get paid.
I genuinely want to celebrate you and your love - like the world’s best hype girl! I’m going to be part of the family from this day forward.
At the end of the day you’re marrying your best friend, and that’s really all that matters. No story is one in the same so let’s tell your story the way you feel it.
From stolen glances to cheeky kisses; from loud laughter to quiet moments; from happy dances to slow embraces.
Whatever your adventure may be, it deserves to be preserved because it’s the stuff of legends.
Chat soon, I can't wait to meet you!
“Devin took maternity photos of us and we couldn't be happier! From the first email exchange she wanted to learn more about us and really took those details into consideration when we finally met and took photos. The turnaround time was amazing and photos were beyond gorgeous. She made us feel super comfortable in front of the camera and we can't wait to work with her again!”
"Devin was recommended to me by a customer and once I checked out her Instagram, I knew I would be lucky if I could work with her. I reached out to Devin and during our consultation, I loved her energy and ideas. Our energy and ideas aligned, so I knew she was the right one for the job. I also appreciated her mission in engaging and highlighting BIPOC businesses."
"Devin is amazing!!!! Not only are her photos beautiful she makes you immediately feel comfortable and natural. She is so personable and reliable, everything you could ever want in a photographer no matter what occasion!"
Devin went above and beyond to capture our engagement photos and wedding day. I can't say enough good things about her! Her positive and easy-going vibe put me at ease during the engagement shoot when I initially felt nervous about what to wear, how to pose, etc. Our wedding plans went through a number of last-minute changes and Devin rolled with the punches and jumped right in to make it all work. And the pictures....the pictures! This lady has an eye. She captured so many wonderful moments and special details. We will treasure them for always. I would recommend Backcountry Bohemians to anyone, but especially to couples looking for a non-traditional or adventure-based wedding.
