Wow. Can I just say wow. This styled shoot came together at what seemed like a magnificent last minute. I coordinated with my florist and friend Hazel Ave Floral and Emma and Grace Bridal shop down in Denver. Kev and Katie were the cutest couple to model for us. We were in the rolling hills between Golden and Boulder, filled with the greenest of grass, the Flatirons, cattle, and windmills. If you’re from Colorado you’ll know that the first part of summer is filled with a daily thunderstorm at about 3 o’clock. I was so worried about the dress and the models until we were in the midst of a blusterous squall. The wind whipped so hard all we could do was laugh and Katie and Kev held onto each other. Her dress whipped in the wind and it looked magical. They wrote out 10 things they loved about each other and stepped far away to say them privately as we watched from afar. I can be quite a sentimental sap and teared up as I saw different emotions come across each other’s faces as they read words of love aloud. What I love about shoots like these, is that it’s a chance to really test out my creative expression. It’s a way of me capturing love uniquely and challenging how I view love in general.
Where do I even start!? Alisha was an absolute dream to work with!!! She was so flexible with us and our last-minute cancellation due to covid. We had originally planned to meet her in Vegas for our anniversary shoot in March and we ended up canceling our trip a week out due to the virus. She was so understanding and even offered to refund our deposit. We knew we still absolutely wanted to shoot with her so we scheduled another trip to Colorado this time and she met us there for an amazing sunrise shoot at Great Sand Dunes Natl Park. The whole experience was incredible and Alisha was so amazing and personable, we felt like we had left and made a new friend! She sent us sooo many sneak peeks just a few days after the shoot and Then probably 100 more photos a few weeks later. They were absolutely stunning. She is easily one of the best humans I’ve ever met and not to mention an extremely talented photographer with a clear passion for her clients and her work! We can’t wait to shoot with her again!

I have never done a couples shoot but I fell in love with Alisha's work on social media. I was beyond ecstatic when I found out she was traveling to Minnesota. Where do I begin? From the moment I spoke with Alisha, she easily made me feel comfortable and confident. She responded back to my questions and concerns within a timely manner and was easily accessible. Her talent and passion for photography is truly admirable! It’s so evident that she genuinely cares about each and every couple that she works with. Alisha has a gift for detail and seeing things differently than everyone else. She took some breathtaking pictures that will always have a special place in my heart! Alisha doesn't just take photographs, she creates beautiful works of art that don’t just capture smiles but our souls, and to be a part of her art is an absolute honor. Not only is her work stunning, but she is a great person to be around. She is professional, patient and outgoing and I cannot wait to book with her again! Thanks for the memories, laughs and for creating such an enjoyable experience.
