Every step of the way,
our work is attuned to curating images that are...

authentic | joyful | timeless


Northern Colorado


Bluebird skies and peaks that defy reality. Clear mountain lakes and fields of wildflowers. Colorado is the sort of place that makes you want to pinch yourself to be sure it’s real.

Planning your wedding here? It’s a no-brainer, right?

I’ll work with you and your planner to create an experience that marries the emotion of the day with the backdrop you love, all told with a thoughtful, documentary approach that blends natural portraits with emotional candids.

All weddings include:
  • A second photographer
  • A full day of wedding coverage
  • Custom photography timeline
  • Thoughtful guidance
  • Full gallery of hand-edited images
  • The opportunity to order framed prints and albums

Becky & Alex

They exceeded all of our expectations and made our wedding day so special. Hillary is an expert and provided us with so many tips to get ready for the big day. She and Taylor made our day run seamlessly by keeping us on schedule, making sure we got all of our shot list pictures, and perfectly capturing our love and our wedding day.
We highly recommend Hillary Shedd Photography!”

"We are so thankful for Hillary and Taylor!

There was a moment before. Before you two knew each other. Before you and I became we. But you two found your way to each other. And your heart found its perfect match. Let's document the beginning of your happily ever after.

That’s pretty remarkable, isn’t it?
Your engagement session is a chance to focus on you two and the unique love you share.                                

Your engagement session includes:
  • Location guidance
  • Planning tips + resources
  • One hour session anywhere across Colorado


THis is your love story

Kathleen & James

The photos are fabulous, and are so special to have to be able to look back at our wedding day in the future. Hillary brought such a light and easy going presence to our day that otherwise was pretty hectic (but perfect!), and the whole time was capturing every moment.
I would absolutely recommend Hillary as a photographer to anyone looking for someone to document their big day — look no further!” 

"They did a PHENOMENAL  job!

flexible, easy going, hard working, intuitive and of course extremely talented. The quality of the photos is the best I've ever seen, and there's no doubt that she's a true pro from start to finish. I am so glad we trusted Hillary."
