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? […]

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 […]

Kat + Ashton’s Estes Park, Colorado, Wedding

It was a beautiful day complete with amazing scenery, sweet people, and a perfect laid-back mountain vibe. Katharine and Ashton chose the stunning Overlook Ranch in Estes Park for their wedding and […]

Savannah and Dylan’s Rocky Mountain National Park Engagement Session

When Savannah first contacted me about shooting her and Dylan’s Estes Park wedding and mentioned that they found me by Googling “Estes Park wedding with a dog” (and found this) I knew we were a match made in heaven. Dog people are my people! For their engagement session we headed up to Rocky Mountain National […]

When they first contacted me about shooting their wedding they didn’t have a date or location set but after a lot of looking they decided […]

Darcie and Al’s Buena Vista Wedding

One of the absolute best things about doing Colorado wedding photography for a living is the awesome people I get to meet and the super cool places I get to shoot them in! Darcie and Al’s Colorado mountain wedding was no exception! I got hooked up with these guys when they saw the photos that […]

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 […]

The Coolest Colorado Wedding Venues

I get asked all the time about the coolest wedding venues in Colorado so I thought it was time to type up a little guide for couples who are searching for the perfect spot. A lot of the time I come into a couple’s wedding planning process when they have a date picked out but are […]
