My Story

A lifelong photographer, I have been memorializing moments for over a decade. Chalk it up to my inability to accurately recall major milestones or my inability to let go of fleeting moments. Creating and preserving memories is one of the most important parts of my life, next to my husband and my son. I believe our time on this earth is temporary, and it is our duty and privilege to make the most of it.

Part of making the most of life is appreciating all the beauty around us, and how we fit into the beautiful bigger picture. I believe photographs hold the secret to conveying that. That's why I opt for vibrant, colorful photos that capture the spirit of the moment, and pay tribute to it for decades to come.

Our Story

Every business has a story, and mine has to do with finding your passion and fulfilling your potential. Growing up in Philly, I moved to DC for grad school and my career. In Fall 2016, I told my husband that I needed a change, and we uprooted and moved across the country to Salt Lake City. It was here that I realized there were actually ways to express my creativity and serve others in the process. Photography has always been my passion, and my darling hubby and I have decided to make it a priority.

I am looking forward to capturing and memorializing moments for others!

“You don't make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.”
-Ansel Adams

Photography in the Mathis household is a family event - because this family believes in lifting each other up and supporting each other in our passions. My hubby accompanies me on most shoots, and the little guy gives me beautiful, side-splitting content on a daily basis.
