Get Married in the Mountains of Colorado

Small, Intimate Weddings and Elopements have always been popular as mountain destination weddings. This year, they are even more popular as small events are mandated and people are concerned about larger gatherings. Places like Breckenridge, Vail, and Keystone offer open spaces and breathtaking views, perfect for your special day.

I want you to know that this does not have to feel like a compromise to your wedding dream. I have always loved helping couples plan the most memorable wedding day, even with a very small guest list. Together, we can make it amazing! Download my Free Mountain Elopement Guide full of planning tools, resources, location ideas and more.

Kind Words From My Clients


Annie and Connor, Engagement Session

We were both blown away by the time and effort Andrea put in for our engagement shoot!  She scouted out areas ahead of time. She immediately made us feel comfortable in front of the camera and genuinely seemed to care about us. She got to know us in the short amount of time we were with her. Her eye and talent for photography is evident from the start! Not only do we have great photos, but also a new friend! From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU!

Emily, Bride - Crested Butte Mountain Wedding

I can’t say enough how much we appreciate the opportunity to work with Andrea on our wedding day. Andrea did such an amazing job capturing the love of our wedding day and the true essence of us as a couple.  She was fun to be with, keeping picturing taking light and not too serious, just like us. Andrea was flexible, kind, and independent. Looking back at our photos brings tears to my eyes and so many wonderful memories, not just of us, but of all the people who were with us on our special day.

Tanner and Bryanna, Proposal

Highly recommend. Andrea was simply Amazing!! She helped me every step of the way in planning the perfect spot to propose and coordinating the timing and the surprise element all tailored to my needs. She even went on site several hours early that morning prepping the location and setting up and sent a detailed plan of how to get to the exact spot. She stayed hidden to capture the moments all the way, with a photoshoot after.

Photos came out spectacular and my fiance and I could not be happier with the whole experience!!


Alyssa, Bride and Family Portrait Client

I met Andrea in the summer of 2014 when searching for a Wedding Photographer. She was the first photographer I had met with and I didn’t need to look any farther. Right away, I just loved her spark and passion for life and for photography. 

As the years have gone on we’ve been lucky enough to welcome 3 boys in 3 years to our family. We’ve had her do our family photos every year since our wedding. The pictures speak for themselves. Each year I think “Yep, these are the best I’ve ever seen.” …. and then she does it again the next year!
