Telluride wedding photographer



Weddings in Telluride are highlighted by the amazing mountain views surrounding the town on all sides. With unique vistas from the San Juan Mountains to one of the most appropriately-named places for a wedding weekend: Bridal Veil Falls!

While your guests are here, they can enjoy hiking, local breweries and cute restaurants, skiing in the winter, as well as taking in shows at the Sheridan Opera House. Plus with an airport right outside town, it’s a convenient location for your destination weddings!



San Sophia Overlook: Probably the most iconic wedding venue in Telluride is San Sophia Overlook. As the name suggests, this overlook location has an incredible view of the San Juan mountains surrounding the area. This ceremony site offers a wooden deck to decorate to your whim with seating up to 250 guests!

Sheridan Opera House: As they say on their website, “The historic Sheridan Opera House is a charming and intimate venue centrally located in stunning Telluride, Colorado.” The space has preserved all the quirky goodness that comes with hosting your celebration at a historic opera house: a beautiful stage setting, room for dancing, and a full bar! Located right in downtown Telluride you and your guests will be close to all this town has to offer.

Gorrono Ranch: Another top wedding venue in Telluride is Gorrono Ranch. The iconic barn venue in Mountain Village is named after the family that built the ranch. The ranch boasts multiple large wooden decks on site: one that is typically used as the ceremony and reception site that you may see in many photographs of the venue, with the Wilson Mountain Range as its backdrop. There are also two smaller cabins that can be used as getting ready rooms. Gorrono Ranch can host up to 200 guests.

Allred’s: This wedding venue is a unique dining experience at 10,551 feet above seal level! As their website states, “The 12,000 square foot restaurant features an arched foyer and hallways reminiscent of old European wine cellars, with stacked rock walls, custom designed wine cabinets, 25 foot floor-to-ceiling glass windows and huge stone fireplace.​”

Mountain Lodge Telluride: If you’re looking for a more unique venue for your Telluride wedding, the Mountain Lodge might be for you. From a poolside reception space to grassy ceremony site with 360 degrees of San Juan mountain views, there are a lot of ways to customize your celebration at this venue!

Madeline Hotel: The Madeline hotel is a luxurious option for your Telluride wedding venue. Featuring grand ballrooms, getting ready rooms and lodging for your guests, you’re sure to have an upscale experience for your celebration here. The hotel even includes planners, catering and a spa on-site to cover all your needs!

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, all those candid moment to perfectly preserve what it felt like to be there. Too many photographers use their couples' wedding days as a portfolio building time, but you won't find that around here. I'm there for you - not for me!

-Beth & Dustin

We used Amanda for our wedding and she is the BEST! Our photos turned out amazing and she captured the feel of our night perfectly. She’s also really fun to hang with. We didn’t want her to leave at the end of the night!

-Allison & Ethan

Amanda is the perfect wedding photographer. She’s efficient, she gets absolutely all the shots you want and those you didn’t even know you want, and she just blended into our event perfectly. The photos perfectly captured the whole day and I feel like I can easily relive it just by looking back at the photos. I highly recommend Amanda.

- Brittney & Brandon

Amanda was absolutely amazing! We traveled from out of state to do a destination engagement photoshoot and she made the planning experience stress free! She helped us each step of the way from the initial contact, to picking a location, picking a date for the perfect snow-covered mountain weather, to the actual photoshoot poses. 

- Kylie & Murat

Amanda did an amazing job on our elopement photos! She was incredibly organized during all the planning and sent incredibly helpful tips and ideas in the months leading up. Plus all her recommendations for other local vendors were fantastic.

Weddings & elopements range from $4-6k
