Aspen and the surrounding area is one of the top destinations for Colorado weddings. Between the famous vista of Maroon Bells, ski resort weddings, quality shopping, and the nearby Glenwood Springs hot springs, there are nearly infinite beautiful backdrops that I live for as an Aspen wedding photographer, and a hundred things for your guests to do while they enjoy your Aspen wedding weekend!
T-Lazy-7 Ranch – With their own private view of the most infamous mountain peaks – the Maroon Bells – T-Lazy-7 Ranch is a beautiful wedding venue if you’re seeking something a short drive outside Aspen proper. This venue has a lodge for reception spaces and a spacious meadow if you want to keep everything outdoors with the vistas all around!
The Little Nell – With access to The Sundeck and Aspen Mountain Club, The Little Nell is one of Aspen’s top wedding venues for its amazing selection of backdrops and scenery. Elegant, classic, and all things “Colorado” make this an amazing option for your wedding venue!
Hotel Jerome – A historic hotel in Aspen (just 10 minutes from the airport!), the Hotel Jerome boasts convenience and class for your wedding. They offer a number of guest rooms to host your visitors as well as beautiful backdrops dripping with history.
Aspen Meadows Resort – This resort also includes a number of guest rooms for your wedding attendees, along with a selection of modern spaces to host your wedding celebration. From a meadow ceremony surrounded by mountain views to a sleek reception in the ballroom, there are many beautiful options at the Aspen Meadows Resort!
Maroon Bells Amphitheater – This is one of Colorado's most sought after locations for smaller weddings. Reservations are difficult to come by, but if you can snag one you'll be surrounded by some of the most iconic views in the state! The Amphitheater at Maroon Bells hosts up to 50 people, so your group does need to be smaller than some weddings, but if that aligns with your vision this is the spot for you!
I specialize in drinking chai tea lattes, and watching Gilmore Girls reruns! I also specialize in capturing the story & scenery of your celebration.
As a full service wedding photographer in Grand Junction, my mission is to preserve your favorite moments in beautiful images for you to relive those best moments of life that fly by too fast.
A Little About Me...
I believe there’s no better sight than the night sky at 10,000 feet.
I also believe you should be able to be authentically you on your wedding day. Whether that’s an off-beat elopement or more traditional wedding celebration, I strive to capture each genuine moment.
I strive to capture the day as it unfolds, every candid moment to perfectly preserve your story. I’m a fly on the wall and many guests say they never noticed me! However I’m not afraid to step up and make family formals fly by (people need to know where to stand and what to do with their hands!) I’m a happy medium between posed and candid.

We'll hop on the phone or Zoom to get to know each other and talk all about your dreams and ideas for the big day, and how I can help make your life easier.
From there I'll help with location guides, scouting, emergency kit info, permits, activity suggestions, vendor recommendations, timeline creation, group photo lists, and so so much more. I will help you craft the most incredible day, with backup plans because life is life. You'll feel like you've never been so excited or prepared for anything before.
The day is here and you're surprised you're nervous after all this time. I will capture your day in a way that tells the story for you to relive forever. You'll have sneak peaks within 24-48 hours and a full gallery of the whole day within a month or so.
