15 Colorado Wedding Photographers

1. Katie Fletcher Photography

Photography style:

Good for: Couples who love spending all of their free time out in nature

Review: “Katie was AMAZING to work with. She took me and my husband’s engagement and wedding day photos, and both were such great experiences! I was completely blown away by the photographs she took! They were everything I could have hoped for—and more. Katie has a welcoming and down-to-earth vibe and is exactly the type of person you’d want to spend your wedding day with. I HIGHLY recommend going with Katie when booking a Colorado photographer!”

2. Heather Jackson Photography

Photography style: Timeless editorial

Good for: Couples who aren’t afraid to be a little out of the box

Review: Heather is so so so talented. I cannot say enough good things about her. I did extensive research looking for the best photographer, and Heather was the one! Sure, her pictures are absolutely perfect, but what absolutely made our wedding day was it was like she was a lifelong friend we brought with us to enjoy the day. I am not a picture person but you would never be able to tell that from heathers pictures. I am so happy I have these pictures I can look at for the rest of my life! I couldn’t have imagined a better photographer”

3. Taylored Wedding and Portraits

Photography style: Timeless editorial

Good for: Couples who want wedding photos that will never go out of style

Review: “My husband and I eloped in Colorado, and I was trying to find the best photographer for our special day. LOOK NO FURTHER!! PIPER IS THE BEST. I spent hours and hours searching, and Piper was the only photographer who texted me and immediately was ready to answer any questions. She is the most genuine and professional photographer I have ever met!”

4. Meagan Lawler Photography

Photography style: Earth-inspired storytelling

Good for: Couples hoping to have an adventurous elopement

Review: “I cannot give enough stars or say enough words to accurately reflect my true gratitude towards Meagan for her photography services on our elopement day. Our experience with her was nothing short of incredible, and she made sure our wedding day was so special. From her warm & down to earth personality to her spot-on recommendations, we were obsessed with Meagan from the get-go. She not only helped us plan out our entire vision for our elopement day and made it all come to life tenfold, but we also had so much fun exploring ALL of the recommendations she gave for activities and things to see in the local area during our stay. ”

5. Mountain Marta Photography

Photography style: Vibrant, true-to-life

Good for: Couples who are constantly seeking new thrills

Review: Marta planned out the most beautiful places near our venue for us to do our first look/private vows and then a second location for more couples portraits and wedding party pics. She made the photography part of the day so seamless and stress-free. I highly recommend Marta if you’re looking for an elopement adventure photographer or a traditional wedding photographer who can effortlessly incorporate the outdoorsy/adventure pics, too. She is so easygoing and calm, but she also directs the wedding party/family pics efficiently to fit everything in! We could not be happier with our wedding pics!”

6. Alex Mabrey Photography

Photography style: Timeless editorial

Good for: Couples who want to love to stay on top of the latest trends

Review: “You will start with a photographer and end with a friend. Alex was absolutely amazing every step of the way. She is so easy to talk to and be around and makes you feel right at home. Her confidence, experience, and style show through in every photo that she takes. Not only was she making sure to get each important picture, but she was also helping pin boutonnieres, bringing the groom his very special letter, and guiding us through filling out our marriage license. She makes sure to get to know each couple and their family to be able to capture the best candid moments. She nailed every single shot, and I have pictures of every single one of my guests. Not a moment was missed. Her professionalism and communication are simply outstanding. She made sure I knew exactly where she was going to be and when, and she worked beautifully with my vendors, all while being a fly on the wall. I loved her style the second I saw her photos, and I knew she was the right fit for our wedding, but what she gave us was beyond what I could have imagined. I feel so lucky to have these timeless memories captured in the most stunning way possible. She is worth every single penny and more!”

7. Amanda Podesta Photography

Photography style: Adventure lifestyle

Good for: Couples who want to feel like unapologetically them on their big day

Review: “Finding Amanda just feels like fate. From the first time I talked with her over the phone, I knew we couldn’t have anyone else photograph our wedding in Buena Vista. She has such a warm and welcoming demeanor and her photos? Amazing. We hope to use her more in the future for other life moments. I can’t recommend her enough.”

8. Kate Merril Photography

Photography style: Creative storytelling

Good for: Couples who don’t play by the rules

Review: “We couldn’t have asked for a better photographer for our wedding. Kate’s style is unique, her prices are reasonable and transparent, and her personality made us immediately feel comfortable in front of the camera. She captured our relationship and our day perfectly, and we now have a set of AMAZING photos to remember our wedding. Her prices are reasonable and transparent, and she was so flexible and responsive (through two COVID postponements, no less!) If you’re looking for beautiful, unique photos and to work with an amazing human being in the process, look no further.”

9. Hennessy Photo Co

Photography style: Alternative documentary

Good for: The former emo kids

Review: “Steph is amazing! She was one of the first vendors we knew we needed to reach out to. She made us feel like our weird wedding ideas were perfect because they were, for us. She is all about doing your own thing with your wedding day. She is great at making even the most awkward people feel good in front of the camera (hi, it’s us), and it really felt like we were just hanging out with a friend who happened to be taking awesome pictures at the same time. It was great to do our engagement photos with her beforehand as well, which were included so we could all get to know each other. Steph was also really helpful in figuring out our schedule for the day–ask her for help with that! Our photos turned out amazing, and we’re so happy we went with her.”

10. Madeline J Studios

Photography style: Documentary photojournalism

Good for: Couples who want every small, candid moment captured

Review: ” I can’t say enough wonderful things about Maddy. She is an incredibly talented photographer and the kindest human. We were so grateful to have her take both our engagement and wedding photos, and we were thrilled with the results. She made us feel at ease on our wedding day, and it truly felt like she was there as our friend. She helped us develop (and stick to) our wedding timeline, and she captured so many sweet and special moments throughout the day. We feel so lucky to have found Maddy and HIGHLY recommend her to everyone. She is truly delightful, and her photography is magic!

11. Mikayla Renee Photo

Photography style: Classic documentary

Good for: Couples who want to capture the beauty of the mountains as much as they want portraits

Review: “Fun fact: I chose to elope in Colorado solely because I found Mikayla’s page online and knew she was exactly what I wanted for my wedding day. She made all of my elopement/micro-wedding dreams come true. The entire experience with Mikayla was so effortless and my wedding day was the easiest day, because she is SO GOOD at what she does. 10/10 cannot recommend her enough!”

12. Justyna E Butler Photography

Photography style: Cinematic documentary

Good for: Couples who want to get up and enjoy the sunrise

Review: “Not often do you find a photographer who is willing to leave her home at 3 AM, all in the name of capturing the best sunrise light for your special day – that was my first indicator of just how passionate Justyna is about her work. She is one of the most calming and encouraging souls I have had the pleasure of meeting. She was relaxed throughout our entire day and encouraged my husband and me to be the same way regardless of the environment we were shooting in. She takes time to be genuine and embrace every moment – even the unexpected ones! She is the perfect balance of spontaneous and someone who puts your mind at ease. She was so well prepared for everything during our day. My husband and I, being from Kansas, are not accustomed to the chilly mountaintop temperatures of CO. She encouraged us to get out of our comfort zone, yet also prioritized “breaks” to go back to our car and warm up! When I think about my special day with Mark, all I can say is there was so much joy and love in everything we did. Justyna was absolutely a catalyst for that joy, and I wouldn’t have wanted anyone else to join us on our adventure”

13. Hughes Photo Co.

Photography style: High-fashion editorial

Good for: Couples who want photos that look like they belong in Vogue

Review: Christopher was the absolute best decision that my husband and I made for our wedding. Not only was he personable and caring, but he was also very respectful. He made our wedding day so memorable. He was so fun to work with during the pictures, and also behind the scenes. He even hyped me up on my wedding day and made me feel beautiful. Everyone had a blast, and he made us all feel so comfortable. 10 out of 10 would recommend having him. You will not regret it. I can’t wait to see how our wedding pictures turned out. I will never be able to thank him enough for all he did.”

14. McKenzie Bigliazzi Photography

Photography style: Alternative documentary

Good for: Couples who want to feel completely comfortable with who they are on their wedding day

Review: “We booked Kenzie as two brides, and when we finally met and had our special day, we were married as bride and groom. The amount of love, comfort, and acceptance that Kenzie provided to my husband, who is transgender, is as if we’ve been friends our entire lives. The talent, the love, the personality, the location, and finally, KENZIE herself!?! Come on…SAY LESS AND BOOK HER!”

15. In Love and Adventure

Photography style: Nature-inspired storytelling

Good for: Couples that want to run off and elope, just the two of them

Review:  “Planning a wedding is tough, but trying to plan a wedding out of state… even harder. This is where Kelly comes in. After finding her on Instagram, I just felt like she was exactly who we needed for our day. From our first call to our last check, I felt so much at ease knowing Kelly was helping plan our special day. Not only did the find the most epic location, but they helped us plan our timeline. I’m sure being an indecisive bride wasn’t the easiest for Kelly to manage, but she and Alex knocked our day out of the park. I felt like we just spent the day with two of our best friends. I can not recommend Kelly enough. 5 stars doesn’t even begin to cover how amazing she did”
