Story from a Colorado Springs wedding photographer: A gentle rain fell from the sky as Isaac first saw the love of his life, and beautiful bride, walking down the aisle toward him. As he tried to hold back the tears, his best man gave him a handkerchief and they shared a tight hug. As I looked around I saw tears in almost everyone's eyes. You could feel the love and support these two had all around them. It's moments like this that fuel my passion to capture your authentic love story on your wedding day!

My name is Kari, a Colorado Springs wedding photographer. You'll likely see grinning from ear to ear as I capture the first time your girls see you in your wedding dress! And you'll definitely see me tear up as you stand at the alter, in front of the love of your life, exchanging vows! If these moments and more are important to you also then I might be your DREAM Colorado Springs wedding photographer!

Allison and Drew dreamed of having their Colorado Springs wedding in the summer time, and it could not have been a more beautiful day or Venue. Any Colorado Springs wedding photographer would tell you that The Pinery has many elegant and stunning features, from the bridal suite to the mountain views at the ceremony site! It is certainly a romantic venue to celebrate your wedding day with all your friends and family!

The Pinery

Boulder, CO

"A boy asked a girl to prom... I was on my way to French class when a tall Senior tapped me on the shoulder. "I know your friends told you I was going to ask you. Would you go to prom with me, Chloe?"

I said, "Yes! Of course!" We then parted ways, and occasionally texted about the prom that was a month away. Alex agreed to pick me up for school on the day of the prom so we could have an actual conversation before spending the evening together. It was one of the most comfortable and genuine conversations I've ever had." Any Colorado wedding photographer would dream to capture such a beautiful story in a gorgeous location!
