I’ll guide you through the entire process

i’m the person behind the camera

My name is Stephanie and I live in Northern Colorado with my partner and our two rescue dogs. I got married in November 2022 and I remember spending hours upon hours researching venues, locations, photographers, and planning logistics (even though I already knew so much from working in the industry!). It's overwhelming and I want to make sure you aren't also overwhelmed! After all, your photographer really is your secret weapon on your big day ;)

To elope or not to elope. That is the question. With COVID, we saw a rise in elopements due to the freedom they give for fresh, open air weddings and not having to jump through the logistical hoops that venues may require. Also, Colorado does not require any witness to your ceremony so you can take your marriage license and run with it! But what if you want that big, day with all of your friends and family?


Are you a mountain lover? Maybe you like some water features? Or a classy golf course with a beautiful backdrop? Whatever your style, your wedding location/venue should be something you and your partner both enjoy. Once you've decided on that, then it's time to dig into how many guests it can seat, cost, preferred vendors, and other venue specifics.


Similar to location, when you have your wedding is entirely up to you and your partner. This includes the length of your engagement and the season you have your wedding in. I personally love winter weddings and that's when I had mine, but something to think about (that I didn't) is travel logistics for out-of-town guests - it's never fun to have travel plans ruined by a snow storm.


I always say - start big and go down from there. Who would you invite if you had no restrictions? Once you have that list, you and your partner can start to think about who from that list can actually come given your venue size, wedding location, time of year, money, etc.


Wedding planning isn't just about the wedding day (spoiler). Do you want a big wedding party? Maybe you want a bridal shower? Make sure you and your partner sit down to talk through what you are wanting during your engagement leading up to your wedding.

In the state of Colorado, you have 60 days to get married after getting your marriage license so this will be one of your final steps in the process. Are you changing your name? Take a look at name change packages available online like newlyNamed.
