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 […]

Tori + April’s Vail, Colorado Wedding

When Tori and April reached out to me about shooting their Vail, Colorado, wedding they mentioned their love of dogs and the outdoors – obviously I was in! These two spend a lot of time in the Vail area skiing in the winter and mountain biking in the summer so it only made sense for […]

Malynda + Tony’s Breckenridge Elopement

Malynda and Tony got engaged at Keystone a while back and decided to forgo the fuss and expense of a big wedding back home in Nebraska and plan a Colorado destination elopement instead.  Like a lot of my couples, they came to me not really knowing exactly where they wanted to elope.

Picking a Wedding Photographer (and why I might not be the one for you)

I’m probably a little biased but I think picking a wedding photographer is one of the most important decisions you will make about your day. Few things can make or break your wedding – and the way you remember it – like the person who takes your photos. But the decision can be incredibly hard. […]

Mindy + Taylor’s Brainard Lake Wedding // Boulder Wedding Photographer

Mindy and Taylor’s Brainard Lake wedding is probably one of the days that I get asked about the most. They chose this location, about 45 minutes from Boulder, for their laid-back boho inspired day – and it was perfect. This was an itty bitty super non-formal affair. The groom and his guys arrived that morning […]
