About Nina Larsen Reed
Eleven 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.
Instead of spending a year in Boulder before returning to the small island I grew up on, I fell in love. I fell in love with the boundless blue skies, the Rocky Mountain hiking trails, and with a splitboarder named Justin.
And as I spent more time exploring Colorado, I realized how much I love sharing this playground I call home with couples like you.
I live, work, and play in Colorado for the same reasons you want to get married here.
Hiking and feeling close to nature every day. Going to local farmers markets, and spending too much money on tacos. Complaining about snow storms in June, but loving patio days in January. Wearing my Birkenstocks all year round. Driving my Subie up sketchy dirt roads to see where they take me. Teaching my daughter to love the mountains as much as her parents do. Being surrounded by people who are high on life.
Colorado is a special place, and I’d love to share it with you.
“Nina is absolutely wonderful! She was personal, very invested in making sure to capture the beautiful uniqueness of our relationship, and we had an absolute blast working with her!”
I am a Colorado girl through and through; hiking, backpacking, snowshoeing, snowboarding. But my favorite way to feel alive is swimming in alpine lakes – and yes, that’s as cold as it sounds!
Didn’t I just say I’m a Colorado girl? A Norwegian-raised one. I literally cross-country skied to school as a kid, but now I only break out the skis for hut trips and backcountry adventures.
Hiking with my daughter Olivia is my favorite thing in the world, and I’m so freaking excited to raise a future hiker chick who’ll hopefully love the mountains as much as her parents do.
