Colorado Elopement Photographer and Guide

Helping you create the epic day your love story deserves.

Less stress | More fun

No regrets

The uncommon path to the wedding day you actually want

and a Colorado Elopement Photographer that can make it happen.

But first, why elopements?

Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life. Shouldn’t it reflect all the things that are most important to you?

Big, traditional weddings can be fun…but the truth is they’re not right for everyone. No one should feel forced to have a traditional wedding if it’s not what they want!

Instead…imagine having the luxury to design a wedding day that truly represents who you are.

You CAN! And I’m here to help as your Colorado Elopement Photographer and Guide.

If the stress and pressure of having a big wedding is getting to you…Or if you are just looking for a wedding day that is more unique and authentic…

A Colorado elopement or microwedding might be just right for you!

Your relationship is unique.
Your special day should be too.

What is an elopement?

When some people think of the word “elopement,” they picture a couple sneaking away in the night to wed under questionable circumstances. Thankfully, the definition of eloping is changing! 

Today, an elopement is just another word for a smaller, intentionally thought-out wedding.

When you have an intentionally-thought out wedding, YOU get to decide what’s important.

YOU get to choose how to spend one of the most important days of your life.

Can I elope with family and friends?

Yes, of course! It’s your wedding day–you can do whatever you want to do!

Whether you want your Colorado elopement to include just you two, or 10 of your closest friends and family members, it’s your day, so you get to make the rules!

There are so many ways to include your friends and family! Check out this free guide with ideas for including family and friends in your elopement. Or get in touch and we can chat all about it!

A wedding that is authentically you and anything but ordinary.

Why does having an intentional wedding matter?

Imagine 20 or 30 years from now, looking back on your wedding day. What is the story you want to tell?

Your wedding day–the day you commit to your partner for the rest of your lives–should be about you and your partner. 

Anything else is just noise. And sometimes that noise can distract us from what’s important.

How many times have you heard a friend say how the stress of their wedding is killing them? Or how they can’t wait for their wedding day to be done? Or even how their wedding day was a total blur because it went by so fast?

But it doesn’t have to be that way! You DO have a choice!

Instead…you can choose excitement over pressure and drama! You can make the brave decision to choose real, intimate moments over fancy place settings and floral arrangements.

It may not be easy, but it will be worth it.

What will my Colorado elopement look like?

Now imagine…

Think about the most amazing day you could possibly have with your partner. What does it look like?

Are you running barefoot through the woods or hiking up a Colorado mountain at sunrise? Is it warm outside or is there a cool breeze? Are you having an intimate, rustic-style picnic for two, or are you toasting beers and roasting marshmallows around a campfire with your best friends and closest family?

Now that is a day to remember.

And this is what your wedding day can look like! Sounds pretty amazing right?

Together, we can create your epic wedding day around your vision. Or, if you’re not quite sure what that is, we can come up with one together! 

And of course, we’ll capture these memories so they’ll last a lifetime! You only get to do this once–let’s create an experience you’ll never forget!

Ready to plan an experience you'll never forget?

A wedding day that actually helps you connect deeply with your partner.

I'm more than just a photographer

Helping couples create their dream day is what I do best.

A different kind of photographer...

Based on my experience, especially with elopements and microweddings, couples need more than just a photographer.

If you are planning a Colorado elopement, you may not have a venue coordinator or wedding planner helping you think through logistics, locations, or all the little details that come with planning even a small ceremony.

All this stuff is just simply not part of what most photographers do. Here are just a few of the ways I can help you:

  • Personalized location assistance
  • Local vendors
  • Logistics and timelines
  • Customized gear and day-of checklists
  • Extensive planning guides and resources

In short, UNLIMITED personal help from me (Yes, for real.)

I don’t just show up and shoot on your wedding day. I go through the planning process right alongside my couples from start to finish.  I’ll be here every step of the way. 

What makes me different is that my number one goal is to be here for YOU–not just as your Colorado elopement photographer, but as your adventure partner, friend, and guide to the epic day your love story deserves.

We are so thankful that we selected Kim to be our destination elopement photographer. Having never been to Colorado before, Kim provided guidance and suggestions not only for our elopement but for the rest of our vacation. She was patient with us as we analyzed ceremony and photo session sites and gave her honest input on factors such as crowds and lighting. We ultimately had our elopement ceremony at Garden of the Gods Resort followed by a photo session at Paint Mines Interpretive Park.

Kim is super talented and our pictures came out phenomenal. Hiring a photographer however is so much more than just the pictures and Kim delivered in all aspects. Her communication was outstanding from our first inquiry to the day she sent our final photo gallery and her gentle demeanor helped to ease our nerves on the big day. If you want a photographer with top notch skills who is truly vested in your day of experience, Kim is the right choice! I would recommend her to anyone.
