Lucie & Brad had a beautiful summer day for their wedding & what a stunning location! Saddleback Golf Course has so much to offer including these amazing mountain views! I loved how she introduced his family and guests to her Czech heritage making sure to keep traditions alive! This day was the perfect example of how love can span the globe and bring two people together with deep devotion and respect. I had a blast working with you both! Here's to an amazing future together! -Kristen-
Scouting the location for Shelby & Austin's mountain wedding was a beautiful blue sky kind of day. In the meet up I had with the bride she mentioned it was supposed to rain the ENTIRE week of their wedding! I was honestly hopeful because anyone who's lived in Colorado for a while understands our weather can be volatile to say the least. The day that had been planned for over year came and Shelby was dead on...it was raiiiinnninnngg! It was pretty much dumping all the way up to Estes. When I pulled up to the YMCA the rain suddenly stopped the sun peaked out and we were able to capture some beautiful images! The low lying clouds and colors that popped with the weather made everything so beautiful! Shelby and Austin, thank you for inviting me to be a part of your awesome day! I will always remember your beautiful ceremony, location and most importantly the love you two share! From now on I'll always say bring on the RAIN!! - Kristen-

How cute is this family? I love when clients become friends and vice versa. I've had the pleasure of working with these friends for a few years. It's a beautiful thing to watch a family grow! Now their daughter is ONE and she couldn't get any sweeter! Thanks Andy & Cris for all the memories over the years- love you guys! - Kristen -
This was one of the most joyous weddings I've ever been a part of. Spring in Colorado is known for extreme weather and this day offered up a few challenges! The wedding ultimately was kept to the original Bingham Hill location which offered up views upon views! All of the details were beautifully thought out including CSU guitarist who wowed us with his musical talent. I couldn't be happier for Debbie & George- your story is one for the history books! Congrats! -Kristen-
Prom night can be one of the highlights of the year for a teen! You're all dolled up and ready to dance the night away with friends. These two were so adorable together and I loved the energy they brought to the shoot! I'm so glad I could help make this night extra special! - Kristen-
There's something so special about an in home newborn session. Why pack up all of your stuff to be in studio when I can conveniently come to you?! In the comfort of your space, lifestyle photography comes to life. What we create together will be real, beautiful and intimate moments that will bring you back each time you view your photos. The first 10 days of life is when to schedule a session. I feel a special connection with each family and feel my background as a nurse helps understand the needs all newborns have. I'm so excited to meet your new addition!
Ali & Josh had such a beautiful wedding focused on love, family & friends. Their day was perfect! From the gorgeous bouquets to the song selection, each detail was well planned and meaningful.

Brad & Lucie were an absolute dream to work with! The FUN they have together was contagious! The snow was fresh and blanketed the ground beautifully. I'm so grateful for working with such a great couple! I can't wait for your wedding you two lovebirds! - Kristen-
Babies and books- what could be a better combo? I have photographed this little girl since birth and what a privilege it was to once again capture all of her adorable expressions! I always try to advise new clients to book a milestone package. What does a milestone package entail you may be thinking? The milestone package includes the following: a newborn at home lifestyle session, 3 month session, 6 month session, 9 month session and finally a one year session with option for a “cake smash”. I love being creative and letting the little ones have fun during their sessions. This 9 month milestone session was taken at the library where peek a boo was played and stories were told! Book or gift a milestone package today- reach out via the contact page of my website today! - Kristen-
What a beautiful family and a sweet little boy! This session was a dream and this baby could not be any sweeter! Congratulations Erin & Ben he's precious!
What a stunning wedding!! The Big Red Barn was the perfect location for Cate & Dick's reception. This was the very last wedding of the season for Highland Meadows Golf Course and they certainly saved the BEST for LAST! Every detail was well thought out and beautiful! The 200 guests danced the night away in style! Congratulations Cate & Dick it was such an honor to be with you on your special day! - Kristen-
What a dream family fall session this was! I happened to show up in a full on 80's Halloween costume! Lucky for me this family has a wicked sense of humor and thought it was funny! I could instantly feel the warmth from this family and their love for one another which shines through in every photo! This field was the perfect backdrop to this beautiful neutral color palate they chose. The big red barn is also a great backdrop for stunning fall photos and perfect for that holiday card!
On a beautiful crisp fall day in October I drove down to meet a dear friend of mine at her horse farm. What would unfold naturally are these unique images! I felt so relaxed as I got to document her interaction with her toddler and all the farm animals. What made this so special was every human and animal was happy! I know you'll see it when you view this post they're beaming! There's something so special when we step away from technology and connect with our land, animals and most importantly the people we love. Fall in Colorado is such an awesome time of year! Enjoy! Thank you Emily for the wonderful time, you're a beautiful person inside and out
I seriously have an obsession with FALL! When you put a family like this together on a beautiful fall day in Golden, CO love is not only seen but felt. The Clear Creek History Park is the perfect place where beautiful fall colors and rustic buildings converge. I had a great time capturing these memories and truly made me miss my own family hundreds of miles away! Enjoy!
From the moment I met Shelby & Austin I knew we would be an awesome team. They share this bond that is palpable and strong sense of family most would long to have. I loved how this session was a perfect balance of natural and fun! My goal is ALWAYS above all else make sure my couples feel themselves in front of the camera and to bring out their very best! Horsetooth Reservoir was the perfect location for their session!
Thank you Shelby & Austin for trusting me to make your engagement photos unique and classic. You two are beautiful souls and I can't wait to shoot your wedding! This session is one I won't soon forget! - Kristen-

She's a super talented woman placing her focus on using her skills in herbal medicine and nursing to help heal others. Her new business is going to take off like the wind! She asked to be showcased in a natural state and I believe we did just that. I'm here to bring out your personal BEST! Take a look for yourself we had so much fun!
Stephanie and Sam are two of the best couples on this planet! They are so well matched and I couldn't be happier for them. We decided to combine their engagement session with two locations that were very special and meaningful to them- Coors Field and Vance Brand Airport in Longmont, CO. Sam popped the question at Coors Field and they knew they had to have photos taken at such a memorable place- America's favorite past time is still strong in Denver today! The 2nd part of the shoot landed us at Vance Brand Airport where they clouds had rushed in making for an interesting session. Sam and Stephanie were wonderful sports about the whole experience and really had FUN! I'm so excited to be your wedding photographer this fall- Cheers to you two! - Kristen-
What a stunning day in April for this Estes Park Wedding! The skies were so blue and the weather absolutely gorgeous! The ceremony took place at Our Lady of the Mountains followed by a rustic lodge style reception at the Historic Crag's Lodge with wonderful entertainment by Mountain Music Noco. Elizabeth and Jonathan are so in love and their genuine happiness was ever-present in every single smile! Thank you for having me be a part of such a special day! I wish you both all the best in your new life together! Cheers! - Kristen Rush-
