Estes Park, Colorado is widely considered one of the most popular and scenic destination wedding locations in the United States, and for good reason.

This beautiful little mountain town and the surrounding area is the perfect place for you to celebrate a wedding with your friends, family, and loved ones. With Rocky Mountain National Park just five minutes from town it’s common for couples to be married at a venue, drive up into the alpine for a small adventure session, and still have time for a cocktail before the toasts and dancing ensues. With so many locations for ceremonies here, it’s hard to pick one! We’re proud to be on the preferred vendor list at many of the lovely local venues and we’re always happy to help you find the perfect fit. Some of our favorite local venues include Skyview at Fall River Village, The Della Terra, The Black Canyon Inn, and Wild Basin Lodge.

Kari and I have been living full time in Estes Park for over five years now and have worked with more than three hundred couples either in town or up in RMNP. We make it a point when first visiting with a bride to make them aware that we can be up in the alpine within a half-hour from town and those pictures are always worth the extra time. This also gives us a chance to give the couple a bit of time to unwind, relax, and just enjoy the fresh air, sunlight, and most of all the views. From a few of the stops along the way you are able to see past the continental divide and into the valleys and meadows beyond. If you haven’t visited RMNP, you really should. It’s completely breathtaking.


Plan on having a wedding or elopement in Estes Park or Rocky Mountain National Park? If you need advice on photography, venues, MUA’s, flowers, and etc., please get in touch with us. We are happy to help and we have a fantastic rapport with the vendors here in town. 


From the white sand beaches in the Caribbean to the moss covered lava cliffs in Iceland, we’d love to be there for your destination wedding!

Our work revolves around travel; whether you come to our home destination in the Rocky Mountains or we travel to your dream destination. We look forward to creating intimate, breathtaking images for you as you celebrate your wedding ceremony, however grand or intimate or some combination in between. Kari and I have traveled to Iceland, Cancun, Belize, and a lot of the United States to photograph couples. We’ve also been to France, Italy, and Hawaii. With enough notice, we’re ready to pick up and go when and where you need us.

When we travel, it’s our goal to visually document your day from start to finish in a way that beautifully represents how it all unfolded. Our work, as you can tell by a lot of our photos, relies heavily on placing you two in a landscape that takes your breath away. It’s then that we get the photos we crave; you two being in awe of your surroundings and having your emotions take over. These photos are the ones that get put on the mantle as a reminder of the time you shared together in your wedding paradise.

Creating a valuable experience for you and your guests is a high priority for us. While we are there we capture the environment, the people, the venue, and a mix of candids that make the entire time more memorable. When you look through your images years down the road, you’ll be able to see everything about the day and remember the laughter, the love and joy, and the beauty of your venue. It’s why we do what we do.


If your dream is to be married in a location that makes your heart flutter, we understand. It’s what we love and we couldn’t be more excited for you. Please let us know if you’d like us to work with you on your destination wedding.
