Dust & Light Logo.PNG

Dust & Light is a place for the lady photographers who have just dipped their toes in the water and are wanting to take their business to the next level. It is a place for creative entrepreneurs to build community, because we believe that community is the best way to ditch the comparison game and combat feelings of frustration and self-doubt.

 

Dust & Light is the heartbeat of who we are and how we run our businesses. We are two women who value and fight for our marriages and families on the daily - and want that to be the heart of our brands. Life and relationships are sometimes messy. We are all about getting into the nitty gritty with our couples, helping them remember why they fell in love in the first place. We also believe that light is essential not only for creating stunning images, but for life in general. Without light you are stuck in a dark place, and who would want to be there? We believe in building each other up and being a constant light and source of encouragement to our fellow creatives.

 

We freaking love taking our couples on epic adventures, but also want to help teach you how to foster moments of intimacy that go beyond the mountaintops. There is always enough room for both. 

 

We also understand that we’re all on our own journey and promise 100% transparency from both of us!

Meet the Hosts! 

Meet Jaci: 

Hiiiiiiiii!!! I’m Jaci (like ‘Jackie’!) I’m a destination elopement and all round rad couples photographer based out of the crazy beautiful Northwest Montana. I am full of awkward energy and sarcastic jokes. I’m also ridiculously passionate about love and how every person expresses it in their own special way. I’m married to the boy I met at church camp in junior high and we have three crazy (and sooooooo cute it’s unreal) little kids that literally give us life. I love everything about adventuring! We live right outside Glacier National Park so that’s obviously one of our favorite places in the world! We’re also super into low key kayaking on the rivers and lakes, and road trips across the country. I prefer to always have a drink in my hand, whether it’s coffee, wine, or grapefruit La Croix! I can usually with bribed with any (or ALL) of these!

Meet Kasey:

Hey friend! I’m Kasey. I’m an adventurous love and wedding + elopement photographer, based in the beautiful Rocky Mountains of Colorado. I am 6 feet tall and come from a family of giants, and no I never played basketball! I am a dreamer, coffee snob, mountain-dweller, adventurer, Jesus-lover, and professional road-tripper. I am married to my best friend and it is my greatest joy to share his last name. I’m an extroverted introvert who loves people but loves her alone time. Most days you can find me watching crime shows on Netflix, enjoying a glass of my favorite cheap wine, searching for the best donuts around, road-tripping across the country with my husband, exploring a national park, camping and sitting around a campfire roasting Starburst, dancing in the kitchen, jamming out to T-Swift, playing cards with our friends, and passionately embracing this beautiful life!
