Yahvah, ya•va

Like Java, just some silent 'h's' in there.

I am a commercial and lifestyle photographer based in Salt Lake City, Utah. I have been working in the photography industry for over 10 years and bring a background of corporate marketing photography which gives me the perspective and experience shooting clear, clean, yet creative imagery to boost your brand to the next level.

I strive for authenticity, transparency and a down to earth vibe. I would say I'm a left brained creative- I like to have all my ducks in a row but I'm also a little bit of a run-and-gun photographer with some weird unconventional ways of making things come together on a shoot.

I have a passion for cooking, I'm in the process of creating an indoor jungle with an ever-growing plant collection, and I am a complete pushover to the neediest German Shorthaired Pointer pup who has no clue what a bird is, but the ball rules all. Also he has to sleep under the covers... and sometimes uses a pillow.

When I'm not living, breathing and eating photography (literally, I create recipes and photograph food a lot on my own for fun), I'd prefer to be outside mountain biking, camping, gardening, cooking and spending evenings on the patio kicking back with a glass of wine.
