Black Canyon Inn

Lauren and EJ had the PERFECT wedding day! They got married in Estes Park at the Black Canyon Inn. The forecast started out with a high chance of rain and thunderstorms most of the afternoon! While everyone was getting ready there were a few sprinkles of rain, but once the ceremony started the skies held off! In fact, not only did they hold off but the clouds parted and the sun came out!! By the time sunset came around there was not a cloud in the sky!

Flying Horse Ranch

Flying Horse Ranch is a gorgeous venue located in Larkspur. This venue has so many incredible details. From the light and airy barn to the elegant ranch house! This was the perfect venue for Jessica and Jake to show off their romance.

The Woodlands

Amanda and Alex celebrated their perfect day at the Woodlands venue. A classic white barn with stunning architecture inside to compliment to grandness of celebrating two coming together as one! 

Blanc - Denver

Lauren and Connor love downtown Denver. They got ready at the Source hotel with great views of Downtown Denver. Their ceremony and reception was held at Blanc which is in the middle of RINO Art District. They enjoyed the perfect summer evening outside to celebrate!

Hudson Gardens

During the ceremony Matt again held back tears as he saw Rylee and her dad walking down the aisle. That same emotion was felt by everyone when Matt shared in his vows how looking back, it was so silly how long it took him to say, “I love you” he vowed to Rylee to never withhold telling and showing Rylee how much he loves her for the rest of their lives. During Rylee’s vows she shared that statistic impossibility of finding true love…about 1 in 10 lifetimes. She shared how lucky she feels to have found Matt. 

Barn At Racoon Creek

It was such a special wedding day for Kaity and Kevin. After having to change their wedding plans over and over again the summer of 2020, they were so excited to finally be getting married! Their closest friends and family came to celebrate these two at the beautiful Barn At Racoon Creek.

The Pinery

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 Saint Vrain

Geena and Tommy had the most gorgeous vow renewal ever! They are such a unique couple, and their day reflected that! One of my favorite parts was the smoke bomb exit at the end of the night. It made for such fun and romantic photos!

Garden Of The Gods

These two love to travel the world together. Although 2020 has kept them in their home town, it didn't keep Trevor from proposing! After glamping in the Colorado wilderness and taking a sunrise hot air balloon these two got engaged! To celebrate they wanted to take photos at a location that was filled with childhood memories and very dear to them!

Working with Kari for our wedding was an absolutely amazing experience! Kari is so warm, kind, and funny and made us feel so comfortable. Not only does she make everyone feel comfortable, she makes the photo process incredibly fun. We had an absolute blast taking pictures and it shows in the final product. We love our photos and everyone has absolutely raved about how wonderful our photos are. Kari is absolutely amazing and you will not be disappointed!

My husband and I had to move our wedding three times with the craziness that has been the last year. Kari was amazing in helping us find a day that she could come. We ended up eloping and I am so happy we were able to have Kari with us on our day.
She was so sweet to everyone in our little wedding of 12 and help to make sure that every detail and picture we could think of was included. Kari did an amazing job of getting fun and natural pictures of us that we will always cherish.

"Kari Made our day a dream come true, i'm so thankful for all the moments she captured"
