Weddings with
intention

I’ve found my place documenting and telling love stories through timeless, landscape-inspired photography. The couples I work best with approach their wedding day with purpose and authenticity, valuing their shared experience and connection above all else.

My goal is to beautifully and creatively document your wedding while allowing the day to naturally unfold – supporting you and your partner when you need it, but keeping the focus on connection, adventure, and your commitment to one another.

I’m here to help you create your perfect day – no matter how adventurous, breathtaking, or unconventional it may be.

About me

Meet the
photographer

Hey, I’m Ciara! As a dog mom, skier, and avid hiker nestled in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, photographing and exploring with couples in the great outdoors feels like second nature to me.

I’ve been passionate about photography for over a decade and have focused on elopements, portraits, and intimate weddings for the past 5 years.

Planning Guidance

I am huge on helping others! Once you book, I will help you find the perfect location, connect you with local vendors, and put together a timeline for your day. That way you can focus on enjoying every moment stress-free.

Personal Connection

Community and connection are so important to me. Building meaningful relationships with my couples is crucial to what I do– it’s integrated into my onboarding, planning, posing, and creative process. It’s my job to make sure you feel 100% comfortable and heard throughout our journey together.

Rooted in experience

I’ve shot in every lighting situation and am always down to go with the flow. With a photography journey that began in 2010, and specializing in outdoor elopements since 2019, know that you’re working with a seasoned professional who brings experience and skill to every shoot and elopement.

Multimedia photos

Film and BTS video clips are part of every package. In addition to digital photography, I am experienced in shooting multiple formats such as 35mm film and Instax. All of my couples receive digital images, film scans, and physical Instax to take home with them. I’ve got you covered!

frequently asked questions

Do you help with location scouting?

Absolutely! Location scouting is included in all of my packages. As a Colorado local and frequent mountain explorer, I have all of the tools ready to help find the perfect setting for your elopement or wedding day. Whether you’re looking for private and picturesque mountain views or a unique A-Frame stay to say your vows, I’ll send over a ton of location ideas to bring your vision to life. We’ll explore the best options to make sure your wedding day is everything you’ve dreamed of!

What style of photography do you specialize in?

My photography style embodies warmth, candid moments, and true-to-color representation, inspired by film. I specialize in a documentary style– capturing both the nitty gritty details and huge unforgettable moments throughout your day. I’ll work with you to create timeless images that tell the story and capture the feeling of your day. Your wedding is a once in lifetime experience, and I want to capture it all!

how far in advance should we book you for our Ceremony?

I recommend reaching out to book your wedding or elopement photography ASAP to make sure I am available for your desired date! While my minimum booking notice is two weeks, popular dates and weekends tend to fill up quickly. Reaching out early gives us plenty of time to plan and prep for your day! Whether your date is a year ahead or just around the corner, get in touch, and I’ll work with you to make sure everything comes together smoothly.

Do You travel to states outside of Colorado?

Yes! I am based in the Denver area, so my local pricing extends to destinations within a few hours’ drive of the city. For locations outside of a 5-6 hour radius, I offer flat rates that include travel costs for any other destination. I’m in the mountains every week already, so I never charge travel fees for locations in and around the Colorado area! Let me know if you are interested in hard to access destinations, or anywhere outside of Colorado and we can talk about what would work best.

do you offer engagement sessions as well?

I offer engagements, portraits, and adventure sessions! Engagement sessions are the perfect opportunity for us to get to know each other better and for you to get more comfortable in front of the camera before your wedding day. During the portrait session, we’ll work together to capture images that you will love and also have a great time together! Reach out to discuss scheduling and more details about engagement sessions + portraits.

What is the turnaround time for receiving our Edited photos?

I will send a sneak peek photo gallery within 48 hrs of your elopement! These preview images offer a glimpse into the captured magic while you wait for your full gallery. My commitment is to deliver your entire gallery of edited photos within 5 weeks of your ceremony. If you have any requests or concerns regarding the timeline, let me know. Your experience and happiness are my priority!
