Hey there! I’m Nina Larsen Reed, a
Colorado wedding and elopement photographer
Eight 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 snowboarder named Justin. And I still fall deeper in love with both Colorado and my husband, every day.
I’ve been hiking and exploring my way around the mile high state for eight years now, but my greatest adventure has been sharing my love for this playground we call home with other outdoor lovers. From helping out-of-state couples plan the perfect hiking elopement to capturing local couples exchanging their vows at the top of our favorite ski resorts, I could not possibly love my job more.
these are a few of
My Favorite Things
01. Swimming in alpine lakes
I blame this one on growing up on an island off the coast of Norway, then finding myself landlocked in Colorado with more freezing lakes than beaches.
02. Sunrise is my favorite time of day
My new year’s resolution for 2018 was to catch more sunrises, and so I started a Boulder-area hiking group that meets once a week for a sunrise hike. You should join us some time!
03. I have a Deathly Hallows tattoo
I read the first HP book at eleven, still think Hermione Granger is the coolest person ever, have dressed up in my Ravenclaw uniform for more than one movie premiere, and named our cats Luna and Lily.
04. I’m finally learning to snowboard
Eight years in Colorado, and I’m finally getting on board. (Pun intended.) Now I just need to get good enough to join my husband on his epic backcountry trips in summer!
05. J’adore le français
I’m taking French classes at CU Boulder, so I can fluently order my own pastries, speak with locals, and hopefully one day shoot a wedding in French.
06. I used to cross-country ski to school
It doesn’t get much more Norwegian than that.
