Colorado Adventure Sessions

What is an adventure session, and who is it for?

adventure (noun)
– an exciting or remarkable experience

Getting your photos taken should be more than an item on the long checklist of tasks to complete before your wedding. And it’s not reserved for when you’re newly engaged, either.

An adventure session is any opportunity to spend quality time with your partner, and get photos that capture how much you love each other.

It can be hiking your favorite trail together, to get photos in a place you love.

It can be walking your dog around your neighborhood on a summer evening, and get photos that let you forever remember what this time of your life felt like.

It can be celebrating your ten year anniversary with a vow renewal, and get the photos you wish you had from your wedding day.

It can be bringing your wedding outfits on your honeymoon to Colorado, and get the mountain photos you didn’t at your big wedding.

It’s up to you. I’m here for it all.

“We felt like we were hanging out with an old friend, who also happened to be a pretty amazing photographer. We hired Nina for our wedding immediately after seeing our engagement photos because they were astounding. We STILL get compliments on how “us” they were."

"My fiancé and I were blown away by our engagement session! We had contacted a couple other photographers first, but Nina was by far the easiest to get in touch with and talk to. We told her what we were looking for and she knew exactly where and when to take the pictures. Photoshoots can be awkward, but with Nina it was so comfortable, she kept us smiling and laughing the whole time!"

Frequently Asked Questions

Will you photograph LGBTQ+ adventure sessions?

Heck yes – I’m an Equally Wed certified LGBTQ+ inclusive vendor, and passionately believe that love is love.

How far in advance should we book you?

You can book an adventure session up to ten weeks in advance.

Do you have insurance and permits?

Yes, I maintain full business liability insurance, and coverage on all my gear (so I don’t have to stress when we’re caught in a hail storm). I also have annual photography permits for Boulder OSMP and Rocky Mountain National Park, and I will gladly research permits for any other location we might want to shoot in.

Do you edit all the photos?

Yes, every photo is edited in a style consistent with what you see on my website. I don’t retouch body shapes, hair, skin, or clothing, because I want you to look like yourselves in your photos!

What should we wear for photos?

I’ll send you a guide on how to prepare for your session, complete with tips on what to wear.

When do we get our photos?

You’ll get 3-5 sneak peek photos within two days after your session, and your full gallery will be ready within four weeks.

How are our photos delivered?

You’ll get your photos in a digital gallery that you can easily share with family and friends. You can download your photos as many times as you want, in high resolution files without any watermarks.

How do we book you?

You contact me, we schedule a quick call, then you sign a contract, pay your session fee, and we get started on planning out your session location.
