Textured Monique | Utah Maternity Photographer

I was just playing around with some old texture pictures and Monique's maternity pictures from before.

So, Monique, you're going to print this one nice and big, like on canvas. Just letting you know.

Monique + Baby | Utah Maternity Photographer

So, I shot Monique and Jason's anniversary pictures about this time last year, and I was thrilled when I realized I'd be getting to do her maternity pictures, and their newborn pictures (though we still have at least a week until that's even an option...). They are an awesome couple, and they're going to be fantastic parents! I'm so glad they're my friends.

So...funny story

You both look so good in this one!

For some reason, this one reminds me of my mom, I think maybe we had a picture of her standing like this when she was pregnant? Anyhow, it's one of my faves.

Amanda + Kegan | Provo Engagement Photography

Amanda and Kegan were such good sports. It was so cold, and they did so well. We got hot chocolate during the shoot!

Laura | Provo Portrait Photography

Laura has the most amazing laugh ever. If you couldn't tell just by the pictures.

Charlene | Provo Child Portrait Photography

Charlene is an adorable child, and Lisa is an amazing mom.

Inland Valley Symphony | Event Photography

I was thrilled when I was asked to photograph the Inland Valley Symphony, one of the coolest local venues of Southern California. The fact that they were performing at the classic and historic California Theatre was a plus. That place was awesome.

Logan + Sara | Utah Engagement Photography

Logan and Sara Mann (my best friends) had their first kiss when they were on a trip with friends at Arches National Park. I happened to be there for the first trip, and I was thrilled when they asked me to go back with them for another awesome day.

Elena | Provo Portrait Photography

Elena is my best friend's girl, and we took these portraits as a surprise graduation present for him. Later, we did their engagements.

Aaron + Elena | Provo Engagement Photography

Aaron was my roommate for all of college, and I couldn't have been more thrilled when he finally found and decided to keep Elena, who is the coolest chick on the block.

Andy + Catherine | Provo Engagement Photo

Andy and Cat Ross are awesomeness squared.

Monique + Jason | Provo Couple Photography

Jason and Monique are dear friends of mine, and we took these pictures to celebrate their first anniversary.

We'll be doing their *family* portrait session soon! Congrats Monique and Jason.

About Me

Hello, we're Scott and Kirsten Morris, together, we are Skoticus Photography.

Scott is originally from Southern California, and Kirsten from Colorado. We currently live in Lubbock, TX, where Scott is studying Creative Writing at Texas Tech and Kirsten volunteers in the community and together we're raising our small family.

We love traveling, eating, cooking, spending time with friends and family, and capturing special moments. We're super into parties, peanut butter, and restaurant hopping. We also have a super cute cat and some chickens.

In our bag:
  • Nikon D90
  • Nikkor 18-200  f/3.5-5.6 (The wide angle is fantastic!)
  • Nikkor 35 f/1.8 (LOVE this lens.)
  • Nikkor 85 f/1.4 (Designed for portraits, does great work)
  • Nikkor 70-300 f/4-5.6
  • Nikon Speedlight SB-600 with diffuser
  • A really cheap wide angle adapter, and a similarly cheap telephoto adapter which create some super-cool artsy looks. {SEE HERE}
  • "Toy lenses" - Plastic Diana lenses, which give a gritty, artsy feel that is really fun.

Bucket List

I have some goals for portrait sessions that I would like to do someday:

  1. I'd like to do an engagement session at an amusement park. Amusement parks are intentionally picture perfect, but frequently difficult to take really good portraits at because the angles are wrong, or the focus already being towards the attraction. I'd like to play with these challenges.

  2. I'd like to do a couple/engagement session in a crowded place, like an outdoor market, festival, busy street downtown, etc. I guess the amusement park would fit this too, but the goals are for different photographic reasons. Couple's portraits always focus on the people, and so usually you try to get everyone else out of the picture. I'd like to experiment with still getting the focus towards the people intended, but also having others in it.

  3. I'd like to do a portrait session with someone who has a lot of tattoos. And I mean, a lot. I'd never get a tattoo myself, but I think they are fascinating. I've seen some very artistic tattoo photography, and I'd like to try my hand at it.

  4. I'd like to do a session in a snow-covered field. If possible, I wouldn't want any, or at least as few as possible, footprints in the picture. Also, I'd like the people in the image to be elegantly dressed. And I want some of the images to have a chair in it. I don't know where this idea came from, but it appeals to me.

  5. I'd like to do a session with someone wearing really stylized and bizarre make-up. Preferably a girl, and it would be cool if the outfit were also a little over the top. I guess Lady Gaga would be an ideal example, but I would like the person underneath the make-up to be a little more normal.

If your photographic needs or whims fit any of these goals, let me know, I'd by SO happy to be your photographer.


We hired Scott to take both our engagement and our wedding pictures. We really wanted our pictures to look fresh and fun and full of life, and both shoots turned out great. One of the things we appreciated most was that Scott was willing to work with us; for both sets of pictures we wanted the formal, classic shots, as well as fun ones that would showcase our personalities. Scott did both. We also wanted to make sure that we got some great atmosphere shots at our reception, and he sure did that!  --Suzie and Brian Earley

"I wanted a homemade wedding. Something simple and charming and organic. I made everything by hand that I could: butter, bread, pickles, pies, skirts. We harvested apples in the fall and canned pie filling, and turned our sweet Halloween pumpkin into pumpkin pie. Our rings were made by a friend of ours. I was worried that the small and beautiful details I had so carefully included would be lost on a less capable photographer. So I hired Scott. Instead of posed and awkward photographs, I wanted a document of every person there that captured both their unique charm and the spirit of the event. I wanted the details immortalized and, if possible, made to look even more beautiful than they were. I’m happy to report that Scott took the enchanting, sumptuous, completely gorgeous photographs that I was looking for. I constantly look at those images to remind myself that I got married! To my love! For time and eternity! Scott’s technical skills as a photographer, combined with his artistic sensibilities and his ability to capture the essences of people and events made him just the photographer I needed to document the magic of that beautiful day." --Carlyn and Kai Barrus

"I never had a picture of myself that I loved until Skoticus took my photos. He's great to work with-- a professional from start to finish, and you'll want to hire him again just so you can hang out with him." --Shelah Minor

"I feel so lucky to know Skoticus! He has beautifully captured some of my family's most significant milestones: a celebration of our first wedding anniversary, my first pregnancy, and of our son at one month old. I just wish he'd been in business when I got married! Having pictures taken can be stressful, but Skoticus makes it relaxing and so FUN. I enjoy the shoot almost as much as the final pictures. I sometimes feel like a pest because I love his photography so much, I want him to take pictures of everything! It's so amazing to me to look through his portfolio and see the diversity of his talent -- he can make anything or anyone look good! Anytime I hear about someone who needs pictures, I always recommend him, because I know he'll do an incredible job. So, if you're considering Skoticus Photography, DO IT! I promise you will be thrilled with the results."--Monique

"I didn't want to have just any hum drum photos...I was more than satisfied with Skoticus's work and found the experience enjoyable and well worth the shoot. When I got my pictures back I was delighted with the photos and had trouble picking out just one for most of my friends and family, in fact most got two or three and in one case a coffee mug. Skoticus is one of the most impressive photographers I know. My favorite aspects of his pictures are the rich colors and whimsical feeling he can incorporate." --Laura Fox

"I love pictures, and having great engagement photos was absolutely essential to me. Working with Skoticus made that possible. He has a seemingly endless supply of creative ideas and is able to envision what would make a beautiful, rich photograph. It was a fun and comfortable journey! I've always been one to look awkward on film and I actually felt good about how I looked in these pictures. A friend of mine who has an art degree was also very impressed with my pictures. If you're looking for something artistic and modern or traditional and fun--Skoticus can make it happen!" --Amanda Spendlove

"I was pleasantly surprised with how much fun I had during my photo shoot. It was easy for me to keep a real smile on my face because Skoticus was so friendly and funny - I couldn't help but relax...I was also impressed with his flexibility. I have had photographers in the past who have not appreciated my creativeness. They will only take posed pictures. Skoticus let me pick settings and poses I thought would be cool, and he also took candid shots that turned out spectacular. Lastly I loved his creativity. He took me to places that were unique. I have received so many compliments on the pictures he took for me. I was very pleased with how they turned out and will go to Skoticus again when I need a photographer in the future." --Elena Anderson

"Skoticus Photography is awesome. You won't regret it. I recently booked a session for my two wiggly girls, ages 1 and 3, to get summer portraits. He took us to Wheeler Farm, and it was awesome. He was patient, fun, and really captured their high energy spirits. He took pictures of them at over a dozen locations within Wheeler Farm. I can tell he really took his time when he edited them. We got 70 edited pictures and they all look like ones I want to display in our house and mail to family! The lighting, facial expressions, background, style, and feel of the pictures were just what we were looking for. I think anyone would be happy using him as their photographer, wiggly kids, or not!" --Jessica Taufer

Considering that I am related to the photographer, I may be a bit biased, but Scott is one of my favorite photographers. We have had several family and individual picture sittings where Scott has been the photographer. We have many of them hanging in our home prominently displayed with honor. Scott is able to easily interact with our children and creates special sessions for them that highlights each of their special interests and allows them to be creative as well. Whenever the camera comes out for them, they light up and really enjoy themselves. I would recommend Scott to anyone and have already done so.--John and Jessie Morris
