Hey, I’m Ciara! I’m a Denver-based elopement and micro wedding photographer with a passion for community, friendships, creative photography, and the outdoors. As a dog mom, skier, and avid hiker, photographing and exploring with couples in the great outdoors feels like second nature to me. I’ve been passionate about photography for over a decade and have focused on elopements, portraits, and intimate weddings for the past 5 years.

I seriously resonate with couples who prioritize their experience and do things differently when a huge wedding doesn’t feel right. Although big celebrations can be a lot of fun, many of us feel like a traditional wedding just wouldn’t be authentic to our relationships or values.

That is why I decided to focus on elopement photography and why I love it so much!

In addition to photography, I offer unlimited elopement planning help and guidance. You will receive not only beautiful photos but a custom timeline and curated list of elopement locations, based on your unique vision and preferences. A few things I can help with are: finding the perfect location and backup location, helping you choose the right attire, creating a timeline, making it legal as an ordained officiant, making sure you have an amazing time, and more.

Below are a few things I focus on and some benefits of working with me. 🫶🏼

My goal is to tell your story through photos– I allow the day to unfold and gently guide you through posing and prompts. I make sure my couples are 100% comfortable and feeling themselves, which shines through in my images!

Digital and 35mm film
Although digital photography is my bread and butter, I am experienced in shooting multiple formats such as 35mm film and Polaroid. All of my couples receive digital images, film scans, and physical polaroids to take home with them.

Unlimited Guidance
I offer unlimited planning help and guidance to all of the couples I work with, ensuring that every aspect of your day reflects your vision and desires, allowing you to focus on living in and enjoying the moment.

Rooted in Experience
With a photography journey that began in 2010, and specializing in elopements since 2019, be confident knowing you’re working with a seasoned professional who brings a wealth of experience and skill to every shoot.

Ciara was a dream to work with! Ciara was flexible and with us the whole way. She gave so many fantastic location recommendations, most of which I had no idea even existed! Ciara went above and beyond for us in ways that we didn't anticipate. On our wedding day, she was professional and accommodating, making sure everything ran smoothly and every shot was taken. During our couple photo session we were able to slow down, relax and focus on each other. Before our night was over, Ciara was already sending us sneak peaks of edited photos! To be honest, we would have been satisfied with just those few photos - they were so perfect! We recommend Ciara to anyone - she is chill, confident and so so talented!!

Ciara was amazing! Our wedding photos turned out wonderful. She made the whole experience so fun and enjoyable, she was also extremely accommodating and helpful through every step of the process. Truly a great asset for your elopement from the planning to the photos. I can't recommend her enough if your looking to elope somewhere epic!

Ciara oh my gosh! These are amazing. I knew you would kill it, but it makes me happy to see us not really care about having a camera pointed at us. You made us so at ease.
