Countries explored

I'm Larissa.

I am a Colorado wedding + elopement photographer, a lover of adventures and a book worm. I love the mountains. I love dogs big and small. And I love cold nights and a cup of hot chocolate. 

I believe that yoga pants are appropriate attire 99% of the time - even if my hubby doesn't say so.

hey there!

Let me give you a few hints and then I'll let this video do the rest: beer, belly laughs + field frolicking.

what to expect

Heading to a hot yoga class early in the morning, working with a coffee in reach at all times and stealing a moment in my backyard garden when I have a break. I'm rarely without a smile on my face or a book in my bag. I want to see the world - like the whole world - and have a scratch-off map for all the countries I've traveled to with my hubby (right now I am dying to trek through Nepal).

on a typical day you'll find me...

My photography style is joyful, romantic and adventurous. I will do anything to make you laugh and I promise I won't make you awkwardly pose like you did for your high school prom.

I make it simple for you, keep it fun and focus on the precious candid moments that naturally occur between two people who are madly in love. 

I believe in taking like a little less seriously...

Wifey to Ben. Seeker of adventures. Yogi. Extroverted introvert (that's a thing now, right?). Drinker of black coffee. Reader of true stories. Harry Potter nerd (Go Gryffindor!). Colorado native.

Things I am...

Things I am not...

Lover of running. Night owl. A girl who was popular in high school. A person who can resist chocolate.

Enough about me! What about you?
