Colorado Wedding PhotographerCapturing down-to-earth couples (and their dogs) since 2016!
Every Colorado wedding photographer has the same magical backdrop. But we’re all bringing our own, different magic from behind the camera.
I’m not going to tell you that my photos are better than anyone else’s. What I can tell you? That I’ve photographed more than 100 couples across the Rocky Mountains. That I help my couples plan their dream weddings and elopements in a place I know and love. That these mountains still make me say “Can you believe this is real life?!
If you choose me, you’ll be so much more than a date on my calendar and I want to be so much more than a stranger with a camera. I don’t care where you’re getting married or how many people will be there. All I care about is that you’re excited about how you’re getting married, and that you can trust me to show that excitement through my photos.
(Oh and let’s get one thing super clear: Love is love and I’m excited to work with ALL couples.)
Who’s behind the camera?
Hey, I’m Nina!
As a Norwegian turned Colorado wedding photographer, I really live this adventure life. Hiking in the Rockies, driving dirt roads in my Subie, and capturing couples in a place I know and love.
If we’re going to be spending all this time together, you really have to like me. I’m not going to waste your time with my whole life story. Though if you’re into that kind-of thing …
What I Offer
I specialize in weddings and elopements in Boulder, Denver, Rocky Mountain National Park, Summit County, and Grand County, but I also travel for a handful of destination weddings every year.
Is having your friends and family at your wedding important to you? Then it’s important to me.
If you’re excited to get married surrounded by all your favorite people, I can’t wait to capture all the little moments of your day, whether it’s your mom getting teary-eyed during the ceremony, or your old college friends doing shots on the dance floor.
Would you rather walk down the trail than aisle? There’s no better place than in the mountains of Colorado.
If a big wedding is not for you, I’d love to help you plan and capture an elopement that feels true to your relationship, whether that’s going on a long hike or exchanging your vows in front of your closest family in an alpine meadow.
What’s Important to You
We don’t have an epic photo of us on a mountaintop, and worse, we don’t have any of the moments. The way we locked eyes when we said our vows or the laughter when we didn’t know which finger to put the rings on.
I’ve been giving my couples the best of both ever since. The gorgeous landscapes and the real stuff like your deep breaths before the ceremony begins. Hugging your family and friends. Your first “Holy shit we’re actually married” look that you exchange with your new spouse.
I want you to experience every moment of your day without feeling rushed or like it’s an endless photo shoot. We’ll get great portraits, but more importantly, you’ll be able to enjoy it all with the person you love.
So if you’re ready to skip the staged stuff and get to the good stuff…
“Your photography is true art and your skill shines through! How you managed to be in all the right spots at the right time to capture all those meaningful moments, looks and laughs, I just don’t know!”

What’s it like to work with me?
Let real couples tell you!
“We are speechless. Nina’s photos of our elopement in Rocky Mountain National Park are BEYOND stunning! The lighting and framing and moments she captured are just incredible. I wouldn’t change a single thing about the day or the photos – she captured everything and SO MUCH MORE. Thank you, Nina for planning out the sun and the various locations – your attention to detail is so evident in each and every photo. We could not be more grateful for you and your incredible talent.”
Kelsey & Mark
“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!”
Holly & Matt
“Nina was an absolute joy to work with! As the wedding 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. She 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!”
Shelby & Mike
“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!”
Kayla & Helen
“Nina is incredible!!! From start to finish, Nina made our elopement everything we could have dreamed of. She has an enormous amount of resources to help with finding the perfect location and has the experience to know all of the small, special details that can make your wedding day exactly what you want! On the day of, she made us feel comfortable and at ease in front of the camera and was a true joy to spend the day with. The photos are truly amazing and more beautiful than I could have ever imagined.”
Darcy & Isaac
“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!”
Diana & Will
“Nina was nothing short of amazing. She was so well prepared and efficient with her time, and my family all said how great she was. Her pictures of course came out beautiful. I was already following Nina on Instagram because of her beautiful photos before I was engaged, so when I started looking for a photographer, she was the first person I contacted. I would recommend her to everyone having an elopement, small or big wedding”
