based in Colorado Springs
frequently in Crested Butte, Telluride, and all over Colorado
Let's talk about your day!
You have talented vendors to sift through, epic locations to find, need to start learning rules and processing permits, building timelines...elopement planning can all feel slightly intimidating and overwhelming. Especially if you are traveling here from another state!
I'm in love with Colorado and have been hiking, camping, and jeeping this place since 2013.
I guide couples through picking an amazing location, securing any necessary permits, and taking the stress out of elopement planning.
I'm an elopement and intimate wedding photographer based in Colorado! I love helping couples plan an epic, intentional day that truly honors their love. I recommend gorgeous locations, awesome vendors, and help you make your dream day a reality!
I’m originally from Wisconsin and instantly fell in love with the diverse landscape of Colorado. You’ll often find me somewhere above the tree-line with my daughter, Gigi, and pups, Boomer, Juneau, and Sasha!

Colorado elopement pricing starting at $4000
With all of the Colorado elopement photographers you've researched so far, I'm sure we're all starting to mesh together and you're left asking what makes me so special.
I care--really. It sounds so cheesy, but I do, like a lot. I'm emotionally invested in all of my couples. In your planning, in your day, in your photos. I'm just a normal person who knows how to take beautiful photos and tell a story. For me, this never gets old. I'll remember your story, I'll subcousiouly hum your first dance song when I scroll through your gallery months later. Yes, you'll get a photographer & a pretty resourceful lady (if I do say so myself), but you'll also get a friend.
I specialize in elopements and intimate weddings (10-40 guests). I photograph your day in a way that truthfully captures your relationship while honoring the landscape. As someone who LOVES Colorado's beauty, I know how important the views are.
I understand that being in front of a camera can be intimidating, I won't leave you to figure things out yourselves. I direct you in a way that leaves everything open to interpretation because, ultimately, when you look at your photos, you want to see YOU--how you look at each other, how you hold each other.
I've been a Colorado photographer for over 160 couples since 2018. Here are some featured galleries!
