Boulder, Colorado Adventure Wedding Photographer
Hey there! I’m
Nina Larsen Reed
Eight years ago, I bought a one-way ticket from Norway to Colorado, packed my suitcase and my camera, and headed out on what’s turned into a bigger adventure than I ever could have imagined. Instead of spending a year in Boulder before returning to the small island I grew up on, I fell in love. I fell in love with the boundless blue skies, the Rocky Mountain hiking trails, and with a snowboarder named Justin. And I still fall deeper in love with both Colorado and my husband, every day.
I’ve been hiking and exploring my way around the mile high state for eight years now, but my greatest adventure has been sharing my love for this playground we call home with other outdoor lovers. From helping out-of-state couples plan the perfect hiking elopement to capturing local couples exchanging their vows at the top of our favorite ski resorts, I could not possibly love my job more.
For Adventurers & Outdoor Lovers
My very favorite people to work with are the people willing to put in the work and go on real adventures. Let’s get up at 3am to summit a mountain for an epic sunrise elopement, drive up a sketchy dirt road to get off the beaten path (it’s why I drive a Subie, after all), or snowshoe for miles to your favorite backcountry cabin before warming up with whiskey and a wood fire. I want you to bring your real selves to your photos, whether you met your partner in the line for the ski lift at Winter Park, or you took up rock climbing together and now spend your weekends car-camping with your dog.
While you might not have time for a hike on the morning of your wedding day, we will find the moments of you throughout the day. Should you decide to break away from traditions and self-solemnize your marriage in the mountains, I’ll capture the day so you can share photos with your family after. If a big wedding party with all your friends is more your style, I’ll capture your love and laughter so that you can remember the moments long after the music has faded.
It’s your day. Make it yours.

Nina found the perfect hike for us and we had a blast spending the day together in Rocky Mountain National Park! Once I got our engagement photos back, I was absolutely blown away. She managed to perfectly capture our personalities and playful nature while also giving us breathtaking photos. I could not recommend Nina enough. She made us feel so comfortable, she tailored out entire engagement shoot just to us, and she perfectly captured who we are as a couple. I am so thankful she will be photographing our wedding in September and cannot wait to see our wedding thorough her lens!
