my last name is pronounced "gut" and then "schick" like the razor - It's suuuuuuper feminine and pretty. you're jealous, I know. I started this photography journey in 2007, and love getting to be a part of my couples' lives and tell their stories. I call colorado home, but will photograph anywhere your little heart desires! 


i love jesus.  and my family.  i feel so insanely blessed to get to do life with my three crazy little people and the greatest man i know - who happens to be as nerdy as me. score!

I MET MY HUSBAND IN A COLLEGE HISTORY CLASS. HE NOTICED MY YELLOW SWEATSHIRT. I NOTICED ALL OF THE CONSONANTS IN HIS LAST NAME THAT I COULDN'T PRONOUNCE. HE LIKES TO TELL THE PART OF THE STORY WHERE HE ASKED ME TO BORROW A BOOK - ONE THAT HE ALREADY OWNED, THE SLY DEVIL. BUT HE OMITS THE PART WHERE I GOT TIRED OF WAITING AND TOLD HIM TO ASK ME OUT.

I'M A PROUD PRODUCT OF THE 80'S AND 90'S. THE FASHION WAS TERRIBLE BUT THE MUSIC MORE THAN MADE UP FOR IT.

I GREW UP IN THE SUBURBS AND MOUNTAINS OF COLORADO, AND STILL CALL THEM HOME. MY FAMILY MOVED HERE WHEN I WAS TWO, BUT I'VE BEEN TOLD I CAN'T CALL MYSELF A NATIVE SINCE I WAS TECHNICALLY BORN IN ANOTHER STATE. I DO IT ANYWAY. SERIOUSLY....TWO YEARS OLD! NO ONE EVEN REMEMBERS THEIR FIRST TWO YEARS.

BEFORE MY DREAM OF BEING A PHOTOGRAPHER CAME TRUE, I WAS A HIGH SCHOOL HISTORY TEACHER. SOMETIMES MY INNER NERD STILL JUMPS OUT AND TRIES TO GIVE IMPROMPTU HISTORY LESSONS TO UNSUSPECTING BYSTANDERS. USUALLY MY SISTER. I DON'T THINK SHE ENJOYS THEM AS MUCH AS I DO.

Mark & Cat

when we met amy, we were blown away. we knew right away that she was the photographer we wanted. amy was so fun to work with on our wedding day and truly made it very special and memorable. without her and her amazing photos we wouldn't be able to relive our wedding all over again.

amy is such a delight to work with! we met amy when we were interviewing photographers for our wedding 8 years ago. she has captured timeless engagement pictures, our wedding day, a cake smash for our daughter, and a gender reveal for our new baby girl. she is our go-to for photography!
