Why Get Married in Evergreen Colorado

Our Evergreen Colorado wedding photography experience is one of locals. Not only do we love working event photography in the adorable mountain town, we call it home. Moving our business to Colorado from California was no small challenge but once we landed in Evergreen we knew we were home.

The town has just the right amount of pavement to nature. We have all of the major conveniences close by and we also have deer and elk frequent our backyard. It’s only an hour from Denver International Airport making it a great spot for destination weddings. You have the beauty of the mountains without the altitude and traffic.

Evergreen is a get-away that’s not too far and it boasts several adorable venues. It’s a great choice for couples looking for a low key mountain wedding.
