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!

Photographing their Durango wedding was truly an honor because their love radiates around them!
From Candace’s first look with her father to Marcus’s tears as he sees his bride walk down the aisle, their Catholic Church wedding was classic and beautiful. Plus, their bubble exit was one of my favorite exits from 2021!!
Taking full advantage of the large Pine Cone Social property, we enjoyed a stunning, flowery tablescape, a romantic row in the pond that reminded me of the Notebook (!!!), and a lounge area that included decorated donkeys and a stormy sky.
A little while ago, I asked my Instagram followers what you wanted to read about in this blog. In addition to “amazing Colorado weddings” and “beautiful couples in the mountains,” I received some requests that surprised me: “How do you do it all!?” “Help this girl with all the wedding stress” and “Balance: working, life, wedding planning, and pandemic.” While I’m no life coach, I can share a handful of things that have helped me manage overwhelming feelings. Here are 5 ways that I make that anxiety ball in my chest melt into the feeling of accomplishment.
Jane & Jeff are the dream Colorado couple. They met while being skiing and snowboarding instructors in Winter Park. During their first interaction, Jeff worked up the courage to talk to Jane by their staff lockers. Jane, however, brushed right by him without saying anything! Was he so nervous that he only said hello in his head? Maybe, because that night Jane and her friends visited the brewery Jeff worked at in the evenings in hopes to see him. After their first conversation, they were hooked!
And in honor of my wedding anniversary, I’m happy to share a handful of my favorite wedding photos with you.
I am one of those people who genuinely loves weddings! I love that everyone gets dressed up. I love the speeches and reflecting on how the couple getting married came to be. Most of all, I love the symbolism behind wedding ceremonies.
Fall in the Colorado Mountains is one of my favorite seasons as a wedding photographer! Add in bright Colorado wild flowers, Nicole’s Grandmother as their officiant, and dancing the night away to 90’s boy band music, and you have a wedding we will never forget! These two made every part of their wedding day meaningful and beautiful, and I was absolutely honored to document it.
Amber & John’s wedding shared everything I LOVE about weddings: colors, creativity, meaningful relationships, genuine family moments, and a true celebration for when two people decide to become parters!
One of my favorite things about being a Colorado wedding photographer is seeing how each couple makes their wedding unique. There is no right or wrong way to get married—just your way!
