A couple of fun-loving photographer friends who teamed up to make this creative collective called Shutter and Stone. We bonded over our love of hikes, "neature", and photography. Shooting weddings together is something we couldn't get enough of so now we don't go without each other. Our weddings are full of creative musing, grass olympics, & lots of laughter. We both reside in the Estes Park Valley and love to shoot in our back yard of Rocky Mountain National Park. 


 
 

Hi! I’m Janea

I am a near life-long local of Estes Park. Most people call me “J”. I am a dog loving, wine drinking, creative minded foodie with a soul that thrives in the mountains.  I love traveling and even spent months in Bali learning about the culture and exploring as much as possible. Being in nature makes my heart smile and meeting new people brings me joy and inspiration.

I’ve have always been the girl that makes her friends stop and re-play a moment, just to capture it on camera. My love for portrait photography began in 2008. I had the honor of capturing an engagement session for two people whom I still keep in contact with today.  Watching the sparks fly between the two of them from behind the lens, forever impacted my soul…

I love true colors, laughter & adventurous couples. My goal is to create artistic and timeless images for you and your loved ones to cherish for a lifetime. tell your love story through images that capture the true spirit of your wedding day, and the beginning of your lives together. Lets chat!

And I'm Kate!

I'm originally from Central New York, where I had a really simple upbringing as the child of a dairy farmer and a teacher. in 2011 I moved to Colorado, consequently picking up photography and never letting it go. I've been shooting weddings since 2014 when janea convinced me to leave me wildlife perch and check it out. i've been hooked on romance ever since!

As a human i'd describe myself as active, adventurous, fun-loving, and often charmingly vulgar. I think I'm pretty funny, I'm probably not. What's life without cheap humor? I get super hyped up about Harry Potter and Disney. I will literally stop any activity to talk about those two things. #obsessed

When it comes to education, I love it. I love learning and if I could, would spend my life in College. I have a bachelor's degree in Environmental Science so I'm nearly a PROFESSIONAL tree-hugger. I carry my love for the environment into all of my sessions. i love for my clients to be pulled into the scene around them both photographically and METAPHORICALLY. My favorite thing is to capture care-free, love-filled people going on adventures. Whether that adventure is MARRIAGE, welcoming a new family member, or celebrating the family you already have, I'd love to journey with you along the way.
