Colorado Adventure Wedding Photographer for 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.

Happy Couples

See what the couples I have worked with have to say about the experience!

Kimberly & Kevin

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

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.

Alexis & Brian

Nina found the perfect hike for our engagement session, and we had a blast spending the day together in Rocky Mountain National Park! Once I got our 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 through her lens!

Kasia & Cody

We loved working with Nina for our engagement photos. She was able to capture us at our favorite time of day (when the sun rises!) and also while trail running in the mountains. Passionate, enjoyable, and easy going. Would highly recommend!

Danielle & Kevin

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. Nina was very friendly, professional, and hiking to our engagement sess was like hiking with a long time friend. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Samy & David

Nina is amazing. She helped us plan and execute the perfect engagement shoot. (We’re the crazy ones backcountry skiing and rock climbing in fancy clothes). I cannot say enough good things about her. She was just as excited as we were for the adventure. She was wonderful working with my dog too. Worth every penny. I am so excited and cannot wait for her to shoot our wedding day as well. The photos turned out beautifully and captured us so well. We’ve had a lot of good conversations about how we want the day of to go and she had great suggestions. I am SO HAPPY we decided to go with the higher package and do an engagement photo shoot. It was very worth it both because the photos were amazing and because we got to know Nina very well before our wedding.

Ilana & Rob

I found Nina after searching through every photographer in the Boulder area. I loved her fresh eye and beautiful photos. Nina was also extremely pleasant to work with. She was unobtrusive throughout the wedding day (we forgot she was there sometimes!), responsive to our needs and requests, creative, and all around a pleasure to work with!

Jessica & Paul

Our experience working with Nina for our hiking engagement session was more than Paul and I could have ever hoped for. From the very first e-mail, we knew that Nina was somebody we wanted to work with. She diligently worked to help us find the perfect hiking location to an old mining town in the mountains for our photos. Not to mention, the day of the actual photoshoot was full of adventure, hiking and good laughs. She is an incredibly skilled photographer who genuinely cares about her clients!

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!
