Throughout the summer months, Trail Ridge Road inside Rocky Mountain National Park is an open thoroughfare that you can drive over with some of the most spectacular views.  The road begins near the park entrance, then rises up above the towns and mountains – topping out at nearly 12,000 feet in elevation.  There are meadows, overlooks, lava cliffs, and the most stunning Alpine Tundra.

Sarah and Garrett met while they were in school in Golden, attending the School of Mines.  They came from opposite areas of the country – Sarah from Alaska and Garrett from Louisiana – and met here in the middle in Colorado.  When they were deciding on a wedding location, Colorado made perfect sense.  They’ll be having a winter wedding in Allenspark at the Wild Basin Lodge (which is one of my favorite wedding venues in Colorado).  To compliment their love of outdoors and being in the mountains,  they decided on an adventure through Rocky Mountain National Park for their engagement session.  We began lower in the valley and made our way up the windy roads overlooking the foothills.

There’s a spot up near the summit of Trail Ridge Road that is one of my favorite places to bring couples to – the views are outstanding and it’s fairly accessible.  We ended our time up in this magical place – with one of the most fabulous sunsets of the season.  The sun popped out behind the clouds as a large ball of fire setting down into the horizon behind the alpine flowers.

Congratulations on your engagement, Sarah and Garrett, and I wish you a lifetime of happiness.  Thank you for adventuring through Estes Park with me!  Have a fabulous, and hopefully nice and snowy, winter wedding.

Recent Colorado Weddings


Colorado – my home for the past 34 years and counting.  My family were Pioneers from Norway and Germany to Colorado in the 1880’s.  I think it’s pretty amazing that our family has always had an interest in photography and capturing moments.  Growing up seeing photographs of our family in covered wagons on their way to Colorado is one of my fondest memories.
  Truly, I love Colorado and the amazing mountain ranges throughout.  I grew up heading into the Mountains on weekends to hike in the summer, and to snowboard in the winter.  I’m hapy to say that not much has changed, I’ve just added a husband and child into my adventerous outdoor mix.  My husband and I now take our little man out into the wilderness that Colorado has to offer, hoping to fill his young life with amazing memories and experiences.
I hosted my wedding in Evergreen, Colorado in May of 2011 at the Evergreen Lake House  .  After our wedding day,  I knew that I wanted to be a Colorado Wedding Photographer.  I was attending Metropolotian State University of Denver for fine art photography at the time, and the transition into a Wedding Photographer was fairly seamless.
I love adventuring to new places for weddings and elopements!  I hike regularly, and love showing couples my favorite spots.  There are amazing places in every corner and in every season.  Snowboarding is also a passion of mine, and I LOVE to capture couples shredding Pow Pow down the mountain.  Interested in a Colorado Hiking or Adventure Elopement?  Contact us on the form below!  Every year I have a list of locations that have special prices for couples wanting to hike, I’d love to chat about my current list!
