Hello & Welcome!
My name is Hillary, and I am a Colorado Wedding and Engagement Photographer. I also love adventuring with my hunky husband, and I am a new mom who lives in Fort Collins. I believe our time with loved ones is the most valuable thing we have, and this belief fuels me to photograph your most important moments!

First meeting in 2011, Nicole and Jason started out as friends. After losing touch for seven years, Jason slid into Nicole’s DMs! Who says Instagram is only for scrolling? This Vail Engagement session will show you what happens when good people come together!
One thing that sets me apart from other photographers is that I’ve worked as a professional photo editor for years.
My background in photo editing can help transform your image from bland to magical using more than just a simple preset. Here are a few examples:
Everyone can agree that there are a lot of beautiful Boulder Engagement Photography locations. We originally planned for a Chautauqua Park evening shoot, but when I offered to drive up to Lost Gulch Overlook as well, thankfully Afua and Kyle agreed to the extra adventure! Lost Gulch Overlook is an easy drive up Flagstaff Road, and completely worth the view.
Earlier this month, I posted about the single most asked question that I receive from prospective wedding couples.
Many of you wrote in with other questions, wanting to know more!
Here are all of the questions that I get asked frequently, along with their answers. If you have more questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out! I’m happy to help.
Jenn and Eric first met at FOCOMx, a northern Colorado local band event. As they described spotting each other through the crowd and standing out because they’re both very tall, I couldn’t help but smile. Their love story is straight out of a movie! They danced the night away, talking about the importance of family, and the rest is history!
Tori and Luke have been inseparable from their first date. They are the definition of “when you know, you know.” I had such a fun time at Brainard Lake with them! When it started raining, these two didn’t run for their car. Instead, we embraced the rain. Luke and Tori kicked off their shoes and got in the water for some of my favorite photos.
This month, and for the rest of my life, I want to pump racism out of me. I want to see, learn, feel stories from Black voices. Please join me this month by honoring Black stories written by Black authors. Here are the books I’ll be reading this month, and I’d love for you to read along with me:
Have you seen the chick-flick where the maid of honor falls in love with one of the groomsmen? That storyline isn’t just a chick-flick, it’s the beginning of Beth and Bryan’s love story!
In 2018, Beth was the maid-of-honor of at a good friend’s wedding in Nebraska and Bryan was a groomsman. After a weekend of wedding bliss, the groom handed Beth two phone numbers and said, “Well, two of my groomsmen want to move to Oregon for you.” Luckily for Bryan, he was the only groomsman she was interested in.
Every December I like to take the time to reflect on the previous year. Although the 2020 wedding season didn’t go as planned, I’ve been lucky to be a part of multiple stunning engagement sessions and micro weddings this year in Colorado! I moved to Fort Collins 1 year ago, and I am absolutely blown away by Colorado’s natural beauty! I’ve learned that this state is full of beautiful scenery and beautiful people–inside and out. You all are amazing!!
As a celebration of surviving 2020, please help me pick out your favorite engagement photos.
