Photography for everyday adventurers

and outdoor lovers

I believe that the photo where you’re cracking up from the cheesy joke your fiancé made will bring you more joy forty years from now than the one where you’re copying one of the “top five poses for engagement sessions” from Pinterest. I believe that your kids would rather look back on your wedding by flipping through the pages in an heirloom album than by scrolling through your Facebook profile. I believe that when you go on an adventure and have fun with your photographer, you’ll remember the session as more than an errand to check off your to do list, and you’ll love the photos all the more for it.

Working With Me

If you’re looking for a photographer who will take you to the same spot as every other client, then tell you exactly where to sit, stand, and look for an hour, this is not meant to be. If you are looking for the cheapest photographer around, you might not value the attention I put into every session. And that’s cool, you should find a photographer that fits your needs.

If you’d rather explore a new trail, eat a picnic dinner overlooking a lake, have a snowball fight with your partner, get some sun on your face and wind in your hair, and go on a badass adventure without worrying about getting some dirt on your shoes, I want to be your photographer. I will capture the quiet moments and the loud laughter, the way you look at your partner with love in your eyes, the hugs and kisses that happen because they feel right and not because I told you to pose for the camera. You are not there for me; I am there for you.

If that just made you go “ohmygod what if we’re really awkward and don’t know what to do,” take a deep breath and relax. You can do this, I promise.

Destination Weddings

You can find me in Colorado for most of the year, but Norway is my second home and I travel to Europe yearly. I get really excited about shooting in new locations, and will never turn down a good road trip through the countryside because small towns and nature is where it’s at for me. I’d shoot a rorbu elopement in Lofoten or a small town Idaho wedding over a big city affair any damn day, and if there are mountains or oceans involved I am all in.

If you’re interested in having me as your wedding photographer, or want a couples session the next time I’m in your area, shoot me a message and let’s make it happen!

Upcoming Trips: Vermont, upstate New York, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, New Mexico, Utah, Arizona

 “I felt my lungs inflate with the onrush of scenery—air, mountains, trees, people. I thought, ‘This is what it is to be happy.'”

Happy Adventurers

Jennifer & Corey

Nina was so much fun to work with! We felt so comfortable and Nina knew exactly how to capture our love and laughter!

Melissa & Scott

Gorgeous photos and quality work. Nina was fun to work with and we felt so natural during the shoot! She was timely and easy to communicate with. I would recommend her to anyone.

Itly & Andie

Nina is sooo kind, and was so patient while Andie and I tried to navigate our awkward bodies to look as natural as possible. She’s easy to work with and really has an eye for catching the magic of the moment!

Angie & Blake

Nina’s relaxed style of shooting was great for our personalities, and the organic look of the images was exactly what we were looking for!
