Northern Colorado Wedding Photographer

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! 

Should We Get Engagement Photos Taken?

Engagement photos aren’t for everyone. They may seem unnecessary or a waste of time, but I am a huge fan on engagement photos and believe every couple will benefit from taking them.

 

Here are my top 3 reasons why I recommend every couple take engagement photos: 

1. They help celebrate this stage of life!

Yes, your’e getting married! Congratulations!! The photos from your wedding will be beautiful and will symbolize the first steps you take as a married couple, but what about the stage of life you’re already in?  It’s probably taken you years of growing up and growing together to get to the place where you feel comfortable walking down the aisle. Let’s celebrate that! I treat engagement sessions as a chance to reminisce about what brought you together. Who made the first move? Who said I love you first? Let’s take the time to celebrate this stage of life before we transition into the next one.

2. They give you a chance to get comfortable in front of the camera.

I’ll be the first one to say I don’t enjoy getting my photo taken, but it is ALWAYS worth it. Engagement sessions give us a chance to spend time together before your big day. You can get to know my photography style, while I get to know what makes you more comfortable in front of the camera. When your wedding day rolls around, I will feel more like your friend with a camera at your wedding instead of a random vendor you just met.

3. They let you show your true colors!

On your wedding day, you will be beautiful. There is not a doubt in my mind that your hair and makeup will look their best, and your dress will be s-t-u-n-n-i-n-g! One benefit of engagement photos is that they give you a chance to show who you are when you’re not all dolled up. I like to personalize engagement photos to the couple. Do you prefer colder weather? Let’s take photos in the snow! Are you more casual than fancy? Wear your favorite outfit, and laugh about it in 20 years when your kids make fun our your style.
