Colorado Wedding Photographer for Outdoor Lovers

When you’re looking for a Colorado wedding photographer, you shouldn’t have to worry about whether your big day is the “right” type of wedding for someone’s portfolio. I’ve had so many couples start their emails to me with “we’re the most awkward people in front of a camera and not like the models on your website” or “we want our families to be there for our elopement so it might not be adventurous enough for you” and it breaks my heart a little every time.

Your wedding is good enough. You are good enough. And there’s not a single model on this website, only real couples who let me capture their real love – awkward parts and all.

I don’t want your wedding or elopement to feel like a photo shoot. I keep the posed stuff to a minimum, so that we can create photos that feel like you. If that’s you and your partner alone in the mountains, drinking beers and watching the sunset after your elopement, I’ll take the photos that show your families why you chose to do this alone. And if your friends and family are part of your wedding, you bet I want to capture those real candid moments of you all celebrating together too.

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 skip the fake stuff and let the real moments happen instead.

I promise I’ll be there to capture them.

Take a look at my work, check out my pricing, then contact me so we can find out if I’m the right Colorado wedding photographer for you!

(And let’s get one thing out of the way? Love is love, and I am happy to work with ALL couples.)

Hi there!

I’m Nina Larsen Reed


Nine 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. I fell in love with the Colorado mountains (and a snowboarder named Justin), and now I help other couples create and capture their love stories in these same mountains as a Colorado wedding photographer!

Best of 2018

I worked with 56 incredible couples in 2018, and these are only a few of the highlights from the adventures we shared!

Happy Couples

See what some of the couples I’ve worked with as a Colorado wedding photographer have to say!

Holly & Matt

To say the day of our wedding was amazing is an understatement because Nina singlehandedly turned our already amazing day into the most incredible adventure! Thank you, Nina, from the bottom of our hearts for capturing these memories that will no doubt be cherished for generations!

Juanita & Will

Nina is amazing! We knew we wanted to get married in RMNP but had no idea where to begin. We were planning a destination elopement with nothing but google as our guide….Until we discovered Nina. She helped us choose a location and had so many helpful tips/resources for our big day. She was quick to respond to our all questions pre-wedding and SO sweet during the event. We couldn’t have been any happier with our experience and we have the BEST photos to show for it!

Kayla & Helen

Nina is such a kind soul, and our shoot with her was truly an incredible experience. My girlfriend and I absolutely love our photos! I would recommend her to any couple — including/especially LGBT couples!

Diana & Will

We wanted our special day to be captured in a very genuine way, no posing, we just wanted to be in the moment with each other and let our photos capture our emotions and beautiful surroundings. That is exactly what Nina was able to do! Nina is not only the absolute BEST at what she does, she LOVES doing what she does!

Cara Jo & Keith

Nina has this amazing ability to capture moments of love, laughter, and everywhere in between, perfectly. When you look back at the photos she took, you feel like you have stepped back in time, to that moment where you kissed your partner for the first time after you said your vows.

As a Colorado wedding photographer, I get a lot of emails about how elopements in RMNP work. I’ve put together this guide to help couples pick the perfect ceremony site, understand the permit requirements, and plan the perfect mountain elopement in America’s most beautiful national park.
