Colorado Elopements and Weddings

As a wedding fun and affordable wedding photographer in Colorado, I have had the privilege of working with so many wonderful couples and capturing their love stories. I believe that every couple is unique and deserves to have their special day captured in a way that reflects their personalities and their love for each other. Here is a very small selection of my favorite photographs from past weddings. These photos showcase my style as a photographer, which is to capture candid moments that tell a story along with some posed moments to cherish forever. I also love to incorporate the natural light and beautiful surroundings of each wedding to create stunning compositions. I would be honored to capture your special day and create lasting memories that you will cherish for years to come that sounds hells fucking cheesy, but it's true! I love my job and am honored to photograph every couple that I do!

The Wedding Day Experience, with Ivy as your guide!

My approach to photographing any wedding is to capture all moments of love and fun that happens on your wedding day. I photograph a mix of modern-traditional guided portraits with fun, natural, in the moment candids! Candids during your Ceremony & Reception and Posed family portraits, it's really the best of both worlds!

Each wedding is different but for the most part I try to be a ninja during the ceremony and reception! I will assist with family photos by taking charge and going through the list you two have created and getting all those wonderful family photos DONE efficiently AF so you can get your romantic sunset images done with time to spare before the reception begins!

I will also offer assistance in posing you two love nuggets if you feel it's needed. If you booked an engagement session with me I will already know what works the best for you two. I will help guide you through the timeline we have made together with your venue to move you seamlessly into each wedding day moment and keep you on track!

A.That's easy! No two weddings are the same at all. Each wedding has different elements, traditions and people that make it unique. Photographing weddings for as long as I have I see the time, effort and love put into each one and I photograph all the little details and moments to tell the story that is each couple and their love.
