Hannah and Evan dreamed of a simple and romantic venue to celebrate their love. The history and setting of the Highlands Ranch Mansion was the perfect place to echo their love for generations to come. It was the dream location for any Colorado Wedding Photographer. 

Highlands Ranch Mansion

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!

"When Kari first sent just the sneak peaks of our photos I couldn't believe how beautiful they were, they looked like art! Kari was our dream wedding photographer. She went way above and beyond what we could have expected or asked for. Not only did she make the day run so smoothly, but she also delivered our images extremely fast! And I can't stop looking at our photos"

"I'm holding back the tears AS i look at my reflection in the mirror. i can almost hear my mom's voice saying, 'Wow! You shine brighter than the moon Honey'. She would tell me this every time i'd play dress up as a child and put on my favorite princess dress and her over sized high heels. It's been 7 years and I miss her everyday. I look at the clock and start to feel nervous, 30 minutes until i walk down the aisle to marry my soul mate. and then, i remember...Dad! I have to do the first look with my dad! As my aunt goes to get my dad I hide around the corner so he won't see me. I hear his foot steps and...sniffling? Has dad been crying already? i round the corner, my dress swishing, to greet my dad and he bursts into tears and pulls me in tight. After a minute he suddenly pulls back, 'I almost forgot. this is for you...from...your mother and i.' He says as his voice trails off quietly at the end. From his jacket pocket he takes out a thin gold bracelet. As he places it around my wrist i read the inscription on the top aloud "you shine brighter than the moon" My vision gets blurry as i try to blink back my tears and then i hear the soft "Click click of a camera!" i almost forgot where we were for a moment! I will cherish these photos with my dad forever."
