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.

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!! I cannot say enough good things about how beautiful they all turned out. Thank you so much Nina! You made our day extra special and we really can’t thank you enough.

When my boyfriend and I got engaged I had no doubt that Nina would be the perfect person to capture our big day. My fiancé and I have a very playful relationship, we are truly each other’s best friends, but we are not at all people who exhibit PDA, we do not longingly stare into each other’s eyes, none of the stuff engagement photos are made of. Because of this, the thought of taking engagement photos was almost out of the question. We had zero desire to take all those sappy romantic photos that were just so not us. After some pushing from friends and family and talking with Nina we decided to give it a try, but only if hiking was involved. We both love to hike and Nina was more than willing to do a freezing winter hike with us!

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!

Nina was amazing to work with! Not only did she pick out an incredible spot for our hiking engagement session, but the photos came out even better than imagined! I couldn’t be happier with the outcome. I cannot wait to choose one to put on a Save the Date! (This is going to be immensely hard because there’s SO many great ones to choose from!) Nina was very friendly, professional, and hiking to our photo shoot was like hiking with a long time friend. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Megan + Matt

We absolutely LOVED working with Nina on our engagement session! We had chosen a remote location on a 20 degree November morning with our energetic pup, and we still had a blast! As a photographer, Nina was both professional and personable, putting us at ease and capturing our authentic selves. The final photos are absolutely stunning. We are going to hire her for our wedding as well!

Kristin + Leonard

Nina did an absolutely incredible job on our engagement shoot! My fiancé are I are both CU alums, and Nina collaborated with us to create a beautiful mix of classic and unique photos of us on campus. We were thrilled with the outcome! She is incredibly creative and so dedicated to creating the best experiences and results. We look forward to seeing her photos of us on the big day! Thank you, Nina!
