Savannah + Dylan’s Snowy Intimate Colorado Wedding

I’ll never forget the day that Savannah and Dylan first reached out about being their Estes Park wedding photographer. They told me that they were planning an intimate Colorado wedding with their closest family and friends – all of whom happen to be “crazy Cajuns”. A laid-back mountain wedding with a bunch of crazy Cajuns? […]

Ryne + David’s Intimate South Fork, Colorado Wedding

A couple weeks ago I had the privilege to travel down to southern Colorado for Ryne and David’s beautiful intimate wedding. When Ryne and David first contacted me about being their South Fork wedding photographer I knew I was in! They planned an intimate, heartfelt day in a place that was obviously very special to […]

How to Make Your Elopement Feel (Extra!) Special

As a destination elopement photographer I spend a lot of time talking with my couples about planning their elopement and one of the questions I get asked the MOST is about how to make your elopement special. I hear people who KNOW eloping is the right choice for them – but they’re also a tiny […]

Char + Shuba’s Yaya Farm Wedding

Charlene and Stephen have one of the craziest love stories that I’ve ever heard. They met in the U.S. when they were both dating other people and then both separately moved to Korea for work. They never hung out while they were there (she turned him down when he suggested it!) but then crossed paths […]

Cat + Monte’s Crystal Mill Adventure Session

Cat and Monte got married surrounded by their friends and family at a beautiful wedding in Marble, Colorado. A few days after the wedding they got all gussied up again and we (along with flower pup Millie!) headed to the iconic Crystal Mill for an elopement-style adventure session! This has to be one of the […]

Mary Anne + Marius’s Crested Butte Elopement

When Mary Anne and Marius contacted me a few weeks ago asking if I was available to shoot their Crested Butte elopement I couldn’t quite believe it – and obviously I said yes! These two were the VERY first couple I EVER photographed, back when I was thinking about starting this business. I had been […]

Martha Stewart Weddings Feature

Well, that’s pretty rad! I’m so stoked to have one of my images (and the story behind it!) featured by the folks over at Martha Stewart Weddings. I love that adventure wedding photography is becoming more and more common and that more couples are ditching the fancy weddings and doing something that speaks to them […]

Christina + Clay // Colorado Elopement

Christina and Clay wanted to elope but couldn’t stand the thought of not having their families there for their big day … so they brought them along! Their intimate Colorado wedding perfectly combined the wedding traditions they wanted to keep with the beautiful adventure-inspired elopement that they were dreaming of! These guys came all the […]

Katie + John’s Seward, Alaska, Vow Renewal

When Katie and John’s kids asked why they weren’t at their wedding (answer: you weren’t born yet!) they promised them that they’d celebrate their 10 year anniversary with a vow renewal! These guys moved to Anchorage a few years ago and are probably never leaving so it only made sense that they decided to renew […]

Cat + Monte’s Paint Mines Adventure Session

Cat and Monte live about 10 minutes from me on the Colorado Front Range (which is only desert-like in that it gets very little rain!) but they wanted desert vibes for their engagement session. We talked about doing their engagement photos at Red Rocks but there was a concert going on that night and we […]
