Colorado Adventure Wedding Photographer for Outdoor Lovers
Planning a wedding can be overwhelming, whether you wanna party it up with a hundred friends at a ski resort or you ditch traditions for an adventurous elopement in the Colorado mountains. You have enough on your mind without worrying about whether your photographer can keep up with you hiking, if you’ll be put into weird poses that look better on insta than they feel in real life, or all the other “what ifs”.
Having a stress-free experience and getting epic photos begins with finding a Colorado adventure wedding photographer you love, and that comes down to more than just seeing a few photos. When you find someone who gets you as a couple, whether you met on the ski lift at A-Basin or spend your weekends rock climbing, you’ll have so much more fun together, relax in front of the camera – and love the photos all the more for it.
You are more than a date in my calendar, and I want to be more than some stranger with a camera. Let’s get to know each other, so we can ditch the cheesy posing and create something real instead.
Contact me so we can set up a time to meet in person or via video chat, and find out if we are meant to be!
(And because I get asked this all the time: I photograph tiny elopements, intimate weddings, and “full-sized” weddings. Your guest count does not matter to me – your relationship does!)
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.
Check out some of my favorite weddings, elopements, and adventure sessions!
See what some of the couples I have worked with have to say about the experience!
Holly & Matt – Crested Butte
Samy & David – Breckenridge
Nina is so much more than an incredible photographer. She coordinated with our vendors, family members and friends to ensure that the entire weekend ran smoothly, kept us on time, made sure we captured the photos that we wanted, and endeared herself to our wedding guests as she had fun along with the rest of our party. In every aspect that we interacted with Nina, from the planning discussions to the day of the event, to the delivery of our incredible wedding photos, our expectations were exceeded and she used her experience to help us organize details we would have never considered without her. Ultimately, this allowed us to truly enjoy our wedding weekend. The fun we had and the joy we shared with our family and friends were largely thanks to her experience and skill as a photographer, and the best part was knowing that we could relive the memories for the rest of our lives through the pictures she captured for us.
Kimberly & Kevin – Boulder
I came across Nina on Instagram and immediately fell in love with her work. She worked very closely with my fiancé and I to find the perfect spot for our engagement photos. When the day had come, we were met with 25 degree weather and 30mph winds. Nevertheless, Nina braved the elements with us and stood in feet of snow, just to get the perfect pictures for us. Due to the weather, I was a bit concerned that the pictures may not have turned out all that good, but when we got them back from Nina, we were in complete awe at how PERFECT they had turned out, despite the conditions. I would strongly recommend Nina. She is quick to respond, willing to help with anything, provides helpful tips, and makes you feel so comfortable in front of the camera. I can’t wait to work with her again in August for my wedding!
Liz & Bo – Hot Air Balloon
We are beyond thrilled and thankful we found Nina to capture our hot air balloon elopement! She made this process so easy and simple, and was a great guide to help us choose beautiful locations in Rocky Mountain National Park for our portraits. We are thoroughly impressed with our entire experience with Nina and our pictures turned out AMAZING!! Thank you so much Nina! You made our day extra special and we really can’t thank you enough.
Kayla & Helen – Boulder
Nina is such a kind soul, and our adventure session with her was truly an incredible experience. She knows how to make you relax – even when you have a camera in your face! – and she turned the photos around to us very quickly. The photos were great and the experience as a whole was very positive. My girlfriend and I absolutely love our photos! I would recommend her to any couple — including/especially LGBT couples! She’s very open and welcoming!
Kaity & Manuel – Summit Co.
WHAT. A. DAY. Nina was… beyond incredible. We were on the fence about getting an engagement shoot at all and on top of that, I got altitude sickness that morning and almost cancelled last minute. We were nervous about not getting many good shots out of it, (and aside from being sick) in general, were worried about the pictures looking too posed. I am SO THANKFUL that we went forward with Nina after everything! The pictures capture our love so beautifully, I’ve looked at them 100 times over…. I love them so much! Nina – Thank you SO. MUCH. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
