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 any of the other “what ifs” that might be running through your mind as you’re searching for a Colorado wedding photographer.

Having a stress-free experience and getting epic photos begins with finding a Colorado 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!)

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!

Happy Couples

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

Lauren & Josh

Nina was AMAZING! There are no words to describe how in love with our photos we are. When picking a photographer for our small mountain wedding we were so nervous that we wouldn’t find someone who knew how to photograph not only people, but also the scenery. We knew that we wanted to get married somewhere in the mountains + snow, and Nina knew the perfect place the first time I talked to her. On the way up to the ceremony site, I texted her because I was a hot mess and was running late (as usual). She was so sweet and genuine, and truly helped me calm down. She helped me realize that I was getting to marry my best friend that day, so nothing else really mattered. The whole elopement she was outstanding! She helped guide everyone where to stand, she took charge, and that is so important in a photography session, even if there are only 13 people total. Nina really knows what she’s doing, and you can tell she loves what she does. We are so so thankful that we found her!

Holly & Matt

The photos are absolutely breathtaking and more stunning than what we ever could have hoped for! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for capturing so much raw emotion, beauty, and most importantly memories we can cherish for a lifetime! We absolutely loved adventuring with you. We could not have have asked for a more perfect day or a more perfect photographer to share it with.

Shelby & Mike

Nina was an absolute joy to work with! When I was selecting a photographer for my wedding, Nina called me directly so that we could actually have a conversation about what I was envisioning. As the date approached, she was great at thinking of all the details I didn’t- photos at sunset, timeline for the day, family photos, listing out vendors- her experience really showed. The day of the wedding, Nina was fantastic! She arrived early, worked well with my videographer, had a plan for all the shots and really went with the flow of the day while still getting all the shots she knew I would want. A lot of her work shows beautiful elopements, but I will say if you are thinking about her for a larger wedding, you can’t go wrong!

Samy & David

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.
