Hey! I'm Jen Dz

I'm a dog-loving, IPA- drinking Colorado-based elopement photographer and planner of unforgettable adventures in beautiful places.

Several year ago I left the legal world behind to pursue my passions and in the years since I've been lucky enough to help awesome humans like you do this thing in some of the most incredible places on Earth.

I'm here to be the co-creator of the best damn day of your life.

What they're saying ….

“THE BEST! I would write 1000x over how much we enjoyed working with Jen. Starting the planning for everything we had a bunch of nerves, and a lot of thoughts and ideas of what we wanted and Jen not only put us at ease, but she just got it (us). We just got all of our photos and I'm not kidding when I say I cried happy tears because she captured everything that was magical about that morning. It was like being there all over again. Simply incredible!”

Why My Couples Choose Me

My Inclusive Core Values

I photograph awesome humans. Period. (Ok, I also photograph a lot of awesome dogs t00 …).

Regardless of your shape, size, color, gender, sexual orientation, religion, age, or experience in the outdoors, I want you to feel comfortable in front of my camera.

I am here to be a safe place for the two you to express yourselves and your love without judgment.

An Emphasis on the Experience

I believe in my heart that elopements, at their core, aren't about photos. This is NOT a photo shoot and the photos will always be secondary to the actual experience of the day. Over the last 6 years I've dialed in the art of planning extraordinary elopement and wedding experiences that manage to maximize both the photos AND the adventure!

A Commitment to Leaving these Places Better than We Found Them

I was passionate about wild places long before I ever picked up a camera and that passion remains to this day. It is very important to me that the work that I do causes no harm to the nature or wildlife living there. I follow all Leave No Trace principles (and help my couples do the same!).

Badass Photos with an Emphasis on Storytelling, Emotions, and Landscapes

I DESPISE cheesy wedding photos and will never put you in an awkward pose. This is all about real moments in beautiful places and capturing it all as it goes down. I was a landscape photographer long before I ever photographed my first wedding and a strong sense of place will always be a core part of my work.

An Emphasis On Getting Your Photos off Your Computer and Into Your Hands

I believe in my heart that your photos deserve to be printed. It's an unpopular opinion in the photography world but I stand by it! These photos are NOT just for your Instagram account – they're for you (and any lucky kids or dogs …) to enjoy for years to come. Which is why ALL full day packages include physical albums!

My Unbridled (and Probably a Little Over the Top) Love of Dogs

Look, y'all. There is no way around the fact that I'm a crazy dog lady. I believe our pets are family and few things make me happier than helping you include your best friend in your elopement day. Just be warned … you may end up with a few too many photos of your four legged bud.

Kind Words

“Hiring Jen was such an easy decision and looking back now we know that our day would not have been so perfect without her!“s!

This is a day we will remember forever and we will look at the photos for a lifetime. We are so glad that you were a part of it with u
