LGBTQ+ elopement photographer in Colorado

LGBTQ+ Elopement Photographer

because there are too many ambiguously inclusive wedding vendors out there, and I don’t think you should have to guess if someone will want to photograph your wedding or not

“We had a great time working with Nina. She really understood how to work with a same-gender couple, everything from not assuming gender roles to just being chill and normal about it. We love our elopement photos—they are very natural and very us!”

I’m Nina!


I help LGBTQ+ couples elope in Colorado because after photographing over 300 couples since 2017, I know in my bones that no two couples are the same—but that all love is worth celebrating.

As a closeted teen in a small town in Norway in the aughts, it would have meant the world to me to see the kind of LGBTQ+ representation that we now take for granted. But the wedding industry is still far from inclusive, so I will continue to work on making sure all couples feel seen, heard, and valued while planning their elopements.

“Ya’ll, Nina is the real deal! We had a FANTASTIC time with her at our elopement and she was a real rockstar when it came to helping us with our wedding logistics. We originally chose her because of how absolutely stunning her photos are, because we really wanted an inclusive, queer-friendly photographer, and because we wanted someone who would have enough experience/knowledge to help us plan out all the details ahead of time. Nina was amazing with all of that!”

Step By Step Planning

From our very first video chat till the day of your elopement, I’ll guide you through the planning process so that you never have to wonder what’s next. That includes location guides, vendor and lodging recommendations, timeline, and answering every one of your questions.

Natural Photos

No awkward posing, no assumed gender roles, just the two of you—exactly as you are. The best photos come when you’re genuinely having a good time!

Inclusive Vendor Recommendations

All of my vendor recommendations are confirmed LGBTQ+ inclusive, because I want you to work with folks who will celebrate you wholeheartedly on your elopement day.

Film & Digital

All of my photography collections include a mix of film and digital photos, because I love the consistency and reliability of digital cameras, but nothing beats the nostalgia of film photos and its ability to bring you right back to the moment.

“Nina was incredible! She’s an amazing photographer and we love our photos, but she also made planning our elopement straightforward and simple. She gave us great recommendations for vendors (which we were initially nervous about since we eloped in a remote location), smart advice when planning our itinerary, and even picked up our cake and flowers for us on the day of the elopement. We would absolutely choose to work with her again.”
