Destination wedding photographer for couples bound for the mountains
Breckenridge Wedding Photographer, Andrea Stark
I have fallen in love with the art of storytelling through imagery.
I care about moments saved. I get to freeze time in a way that no one will get to experience again except through that photograph. I creatively document wedding milestones in the magical settings of mountain landscapes. I’ve dedicated my professional life to capturing those moments for couples. With a wide view of a wedding day, I craft meaningful images in both film and digital photography, so that the story told never dulls with time.
Before becoming a Breckenridge and destination wedding photographer, I began my wedding journey studying various art forms in this industry. I learned floral design as a wedding florist, mastered the precision of wedding day timelines as a lead wedding planner, and spent countless hours styling brides for their big days in my hometown bridal salon. The gift I was given is a true 360-degree understanding of the pieces of the puzzle that masterfully “fall” into place on the wedding day. Armed with that knowledge and understanding, I’m a better wedding photographer for you today.
My husband and I live in Breckenridge, Colorado and have two girls. We fell in love with each other with a shared love for Jesus and fishing, and he even proposed to me while fly fishing in one of our favorite Rocky Mountain rivers.
I shoot destination weddings all over the United States, and have spent the majority of the last few years at some incredible venues such as The Little Nell Aspen, The St. Regis, Aspen, Four Season Vail, Ritz Carlton Bachelor Gulch, Devil’s Thumb Ranch, and The 10th at Vail. I’m based between Colorado and the South, and available to travel wherever!

My style is photojournalistic, documenting your day in a way that tells a cohesive story, while also capturing beautiful and timeless portraits. You can find my work in Modern Luxury Aspen (coming May 2023!), Rocky Mountain Bride, Colorado Wedding Magazine and the Wedding Chicks.
The Andrea Stark Experience
My photography style is one that is photojournalistic and unobtrusive. I document your life’s memories in a deeply personal and cohesive story through multiple mediums. I pride myself on a timeless look, beautiful portraiture, and classic imagery you can hang in your home for generations. My work is cheerful and light – feelings I hope to impart when we work together.
I specialize in destination weddings and portrait photography for couples bound for the mountains. My love of the mountains runs deep. It’s what drew me to Colorado. Well, it first was my husband who moved there when we were first dating. We fell in love with each other over our love for Jesus and fishing. He even proposed to me while fly fishing in one of our favorite Rocky Mountain Rivers. The mountains home to me.
And when I return to my childhood home, I head back to another small mountain town, in Arkansas, where I grew up and attended the University of Arkansas. There I received my Bachelors and Masters degrees in Broadcast Journalism and Secondary English Education before venturing into this special world of mountain weddings. At heart, I’m a southern gal who loves the outdoors. Together, all of my life experiences have called me to make mountains my home, my office…and my canvas.
That’s a little peek into my story. I’m so excited to learn about yours. I would be honored to capture your moments and freeze that happiness in a frame. To learn more about my services or to hire me as your destination wedding photographer, visit here, drop me a line or schedule a call.

Jordan, Bride - Breckenridge, Colorado
One of our best decisions and absolute favorite memories of the day was getting to work with Andrea. From our very first chat together, we could tell that Andrea LOVES what she does. Before our special day arrived, Andrea listened to our vision and gave us recommendations on the best locations for our elopement shoot. Andrea made us feel comfortable from the very moment she took her camera out. It was such a blast! Upon receiving our photos, we were BLOWN away! If you are searching for a photographer who can make your day one to remember, look no further, you will not be disappointed!
