Helping down-to-earth couples plan epic elopements and create memories for life
More and more couples know that a big, traditional wedding isn’t right for them. I plan and photograph epic elopements and intimate weddings for couples who want to choose their own adventure, have the best day ever, and create memories for life.

“Planning our Colorado elopement from out of state, we had many questions, but Nina has an enormous amount of resources, and the experience to know all of the small, special details that will make your wedding day exactly what you want!”

About Nina Larsen Reed

I don’t believe in regrets, but I do have one.

When my husband and I eloped nine years ago, we felt lost on how to make our wedding day special. So we got married inside the Boulder courthouse, while the sun was shining over the snow-covered mountains we love right outside. 

Since then, I’ve made it my mission in life to help couples like you create elopements that feel like the best day ever, so you can look back on your wedding day without regrets and remember every epic moment of your adventure.

“Even though our elopement day was our first time meeting Nina in person, being around her immediately felt like spending time with a true friend.”

How this works

1. Contact

You contact me, and we schedule a free video consultation to talk about what you’re dreaming up and how I can help you. At the end of our call, you’ll know for sure if I’m the right Colorado elopement photographer for you.

2. Plan

You book me, and we start planning. You answer a questionnaire, and I give you location ideas, help build your timeline, recommend vendors, and keep it all stress-free and fun.

3. Elope

You get married while having the best time ever, trust me to capture the whole day exactly as it felt, and relive the excitement for life through your epic elopement photos.

“If you want someone who will make planning a breeze, take you into the Colorado backcountry while chatting like old friends, take absolutely breathtaking photos, and make the whole day feel like a dream–hire Nina!”

You need more than just a photographer

You need more than just a Colorado elopement photographer on your team.

Your photographer should be your source of ideas and inspiration, local knowledge, and experience. Your photographer will recommend trusted vendors, build you a relaxed timeline, find the perfect location, research permits, and help you make your elopement a special adventure in all the best ways.

Your photographer will be by your side for every moment of the happiest day of your life.

When you work with me, you are so much more than a date on my calendar and I want to be so much more than a stranger with a camera. Because when you can trust that I care about your elopement as if it was my own, you’ll be able to relax and have the best day ever!

“We are so lucky to have chosen Nina as our photographer, not only for her amazing photos, but her knowledge of Colorado and her help in planning it all. Nina was the TOTAL package!”

“Nina guided us through the entire process of getting married in Rocky Mountain National Park, from getting the permit to deciding on a ceremony location and finding an officiant. Her expertise was crucial to pulling off the wedding of our dreams.”

Elopement planning resources

My couples have said that I’m “super knowledgeable,” “incredibly helpful,” and “will be your personal Leslie Knope” (okay, my husband said that last one). Check out these free resources to see what they’re talking about.

“To say the day of our elopement in Colorado was amazing is an understatement because Nina singlehandedly turned our already amazing day into the most incredible adventure!”
