Some things to know about how I run things, who I am, and what I am about…
Back in my college days, my entire college career I was always obsessing over the human form (art major). Now I have a job that lets me use that to create killer rad works for women and men all over and not even just that but also make them feel fucking awesome about themselves. Like I honestly think that is by far the best part of the job. Delivering that final album and either seeing or hearing their reaction is literally the greatest thing on earth. Knowing that I make a difference in someone’s day and the way that they look at them selves is by far the greatest job in the world.
My studio for many is a safe place that they can literally feel and be 100% themselves and feel beautiful doing so. Want to shoot some full nude? Hell ya boo rock that body. Prefer some risqué lingerie? Wear what makes you feel sexy! Are you more comfortable in a baggy cardigan and your favorite pj shorts? COMFY AND COZY FOR THE WIN! Want to incorporate your husbands uniform, some props from home, or maybe even those handcuffs you keep hidden away ? LETS DO IT! My studio is yours when we are shooting. Consider it your own little dojo perhaps. There are no limits, no boundaries, and NO JUDGEMENTS.
Self Love is one of the most important things a woman can have. There is no love like self love. Something I tell my clients when they first book is that I don’t do photoshop work because I feel like Boudoir is to embrace who you are and to make you feel empowered. You should forever feel proud of who you are and what you are capable of!

What all does Illuminated Palette have to offer?
Weddings & Elopements
The Occasional Family
"There’s not enough ways to say how amazing Hannah is.. Being photographed can be awkward for some due to having to pose but with her that doesn’t exist. She made everything so much fun and every moment she captured was so natural. I couldn’t ask for anything better. Thank you for being amazing and capturing moments I’ll never forget." - Ashley D
Memories to last a Lifetime
Moments to Last Forever
"I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND using Hannah as your photographer!! As the mother of the bride, I can attest that we were very impressed with Hannah Orcutt / Illuminated Palette Photography! Hannah was very professional! Her pictures are gorgeous! My husband said Hannah is either part ninja or has a Harry Potter invisible cloak. She seemed to be everywhere taking pictures of everyone! Thank you so much Hannah for recording gorgeous pictures of this wonderful day!" - Leslie B
Making the Ordinary...
"I CAN NOT express how fun, laid back, sweet, edgy, & patient, Hannah with Illuminated Palette was with us and our, full of life family, on our wedding day!!! She captured moments that made me cry, again while looking at the photos. We went over what I wanted and what shots were important to me and she delivered ALL of them!! She ran her booty off and delivered amazing photos! I couldn't be more thrilled! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!" - Andrea B
Never Wanting the Session to End
Can we just shoot forever?
"HANNAH IS AMAZING. My boyfriend and I did a couples shoot the other day and I am so beyond happy we did! Hannah made us feel so comfortable. The best part about it: she gets SO excited about the pictures when she’s taking them, especially when she gets the perfect shot! She is so good at what she does!!!!" - Haley A
Boudoir & Milk Bath
"We had this photographer at our event this past month and the pictures were unbelievable. Talk about a great photographer!!! She not only helped capture the event, she also made sure to capture both candid and staged photos. I look forward to sharing these pictures for years to come! She out performed all of our expectations, and managed to corral a large group into a meaningful memories of our event. Absolutely amazing and will hire for everything from here on out." - Patrick C
Making Every Moment Count
No matter how Big or Small
"AMAZING. TALENTED. WONDERFUL. PERFECT. This was my first time having my photos taken professionally, and Hannah made me feel so confident, beautiful, and comfortable. She has a laid-back, fun personality but still keeps it professional and does not mind hearing your ideas on what you want. My experience was great and I recommend her to everyone!" - Loan T
Never a Dull Moment
Even if you Try
"Hannah is the best! She has done family photos (which turned into a surprise engagement that her and my now fiancé planned) and my engagement photos and will be doing my wedding. She’s truly the best! Her photos never leave me disappointed. She’s so sweet and she works with you on where you want to go and the time of day. She gets the photos back to you so quickly as well! I have nothing bad to say about Hannah, she’s such a doll and I can’t wait to see the amazing photos she takes at my wedding!" - Delaney C
