About Us

it all starts with a story.

Your wild, adventurous love. Your passionate, grassroots business journey.

Singing at the top of your lungs in the car with your partner on that one road trip and feeling it suddenly click into place... This is your person.

Staying up late to ship your first batch of products or putting finishing touches on a huge client project when it finally sinks in… I’m actually doing what I love for a living.


Those stories, those memories, mean everything.

This Is Us

Hi, we're Dave & Shanna!

We're the husband and wife team behind Basecamp Visual. It's so cool that you've found your way here!

We specialize in handcrafted, heirloom photography and films for lovaaahs. We'd be super honored to tell your story.

We're currently nestled at 11,000 ft. in the breathtaking Colorado Rocky Mountains, where with live with our three boys, Neeson, Copeland, & Barnes. They're our everyday, adorable reasons we believe in preserving the memories of life’s many fleeting moments. It all feels like a dream - a loud, messy, perfect dream.

We believe in getting dirty. In hiking through the woods and jumping across streams. In going a bit off the beaten path. In getting up before dawn to chase the sun... or our coffee + kids. We also enjoy the rare good night's sleep and a delicious home cooked meal.

We value simplicity, little details, and really great light. There's nothin' perfect here - we like whats real instead. We view our clients as friends and work to fully immerse ourselves in their stories. We promise you'll have so much fun with us.

At the root of it all, our hope is to create authentic and inspiring films + photographs that evoke a strong sense of adventure, exploration, love and connection. Sounds great, yeah?

us + our people

Basecamp Visual made our wedding video dreams come true!

We felt incredibly lucky to find them. Dave was so wonderfully helpful and easy to work with, and he and Trout fit right into our intimate, wild, adventurous mountain wedding vibe. The video Dave and Shanna produced is MIND BLOWING and so perfectly US!!! We have watched it over and over again in tears of happiness, love, and joy. We are so thrilled at how the video not only captures the spirit, energy, and magic of our special day, but also so beautifully and artistically tells the story of our love and commitment to each other. We are unbelievably grateful to the incredible Basecamp Visual team and are going to treasure our video FOREVER!

Again, a huge and heartfelt thank you!!

Brooks + Ashley
