My name is Larissa and I am a Colorado-based intimate wedding and adventure elopement photographer with a mission to capture real couples in real ways.
I'd take an adventure in the mountains over shopping any day and prefer a date night snuggling on the couch over dinner and a movie. I'm obsessed with: morning snuggles with my rescue pup, Hazel, hot chocolate, a good book and yoga pants.
I believe in making you forget a camera's even there, that your story is the actual thing I want to capture on camera and that real, raw moments are more important that perfectly curated poses.
I am so excited you are considering eloping in Colorado! Here's what's included in The Colorado Elopement Planning Guide:

LARISSA IS HANDS DOWN THE BEST! I have never met a photographer that cares so genuinely about her clients!! She took the time to get to know my husband and I before we even met her, which blew my mind. When we finally met, I honestly felt like I was hanging out with one of my good friends. She makes you feel so comfortable and relaxed during your session. She was able to bring out and capture me and my husband's goofy/fun personalities in a natural way. The whole process of working with Larissa was perfect. I highly highly recommend Larissa - you will not regret it!!!

From the moment we met her during our engagement shoot, Larissa was friendly, exuberant, and always willing to go the extra mile. She made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera and able to be ourselves! As we planned our wedding, Larissa was so organized! She made me feel like I had absolutely nothing to worry about when it came to our wedding day! She even helped us sort out our timeline. After our wedding, all of our family and friends couldn't stop raving about our photographer and how wonderful she was. She was our favorite vendor from start to finish.

Larissa is AMAZING!! My fiancé isn’t much for taking pictures, but she made us both feel so comfortable! The reason I fought to have her as our photographer is because she went out of her way to skype us to meet since our schedule is so hectic! She was SOO easy to get along with, she took the time to get to know us, it was like we are working with a friend we have known for a long time! We are so excited to see her for the wedding and can’t wait!!

Larissa is absolutely incredible! She is the most bubbly and friendly person I have ever met. She is thorough and organized which made things very easy leading up to the big day! She listened to what we wanted and made picture taking fun. She was very direct in making sure our family pictures were taken so that we could stay on schedule. I never felt like we were running behind! Our pictures are stunning and this is truly all thanks to Larissa. She made my husband and I feel so comfortable in front of the camera. I cannot thank her enough for everything that she did! I highly recommend her!

Larissa is an absolute gem! She makes you feel so comfortable and like you are just hanging out with a friend. We even brought our dog along and she took fantastic photos of him that we will cherish! She takes the time to get to know you both and as a couple which absolutely shows in her photography. Our engagement photos are better than I could've imagined and I can't wait for her to photograph our wedding!

Truly incredible! I was a complete basket case when Larissa came to pick me up for the "first look" and she was so nice and calming. It was like we had been friends for a long time. Once I saw my husband I was all better (butterflies gone) but you can't imagine how nice it was to feel like she actually cared about me and the warmth she showed me in those nervous moments is something I will always be thankful for. It was such a lovely and romantic way to end our wedding day, dancing on top of the world at sunset (Larissa'a idea of course).
