Colorado elopement and adventurous wedding photographer for easy-going couples who love nature! I’m here to guide you on this wild, wild ride. 

Your elopement day should be everything that you want it to be! I help couples craft epic elopements in wild places. & NOOOO you don’t have to be an avid hiker to exchange vows in deep in the mountains, I know lots of amazing places that require little to no effort to get to 🙂 My job is to make sure you and your honey have an awesome way to remember the beauty of your day and help you get there! During the planning process, I help find epic locations, handle permits, and recommend other awesome vendors to help relieve some of the planning stress. Beyond that, I’m here to ensure you look amazing AND comfortable in your photos. I throw some direction to you here and there (gotta get those angles and make sure you know what to do with your hands lol), but other than that, I just bounce around and document your day as it unfolds naturally! You definitely need someone who can handle all of the big, moving parts of your day so you can be present and just focus on having fun and getting married! Oh, hi. That someone is me nice to meet ya 🙂

When you start brainstorming, promise me that you won’t limit yourselves. There’s no right or wrong way to get married! Your wedding day should be an absolute reflection of you and your love. If you want to climb a mountain, let’s do it! If you want to crack open some beers, I’m down. IF YOU WANT TO BRING YOUR DOG, PLEEEEASE DO!!!!! When you look back at your photos 20, 30, 40 years from now, you want to say “Wow, our day was so us” and have no regrets. I want that for you too, whatever that looks like. 

ALL LOVE IS WELCOME HERE! Can’t wait to chat 🙂

Mikayla, is so down to earth and puts you at ease right away. She is really flexible and is always willing to give suggestions based on your vision. You can tell she really pays attention to angles, lighting, background, etc. She also shoots a variety of different photos--I never feel like I have a bunch of the same picture. We have taken photos with her twice, and we can't wait for her to shoot our wedding! She's basically become our pal, and we will continue to work with her, even after our wedding. Thank you, Mikayla!!

Mikayla did an amazing job! When I booked her I wasn't planning on a pandemic being a thing, but she was very helpful all the steps along the way. My fiancé and his family share wonderful memories of family vacations in steamboat springs, CO. However, I had never been to Steamboat Springs, and neither had Mikayla, but she was very flexible, patient, creative, professional and willing to adventure. She captured some beautiful moments that I'm glad I get to look at and cherish for forever. We had an engagement/couples session the day before our wedding and she was able to get those amazing photos back to us so fast. The wedding photos were even more beautiful! Looking at them brings me back to that phenomenal day. Thank you for capturing those moments and more importantly the love we share!

that my wife and I had with Mikayla I felt it was only right to share her greatness with whomever may read this and possibly be on the fence about who your photographer should be. Here's a quick hint if you don't want to keep reading (it is Mikayla, no doubt about it). My wife found Mikayla and her breathtaking work while looking for an elopement photographer in Colorado on Instagram. Coming to Colorado from Florida naturally we reached out to numerous elopement photographers. From the jump it was evident that Mikayla was not only passionate about finding us a perfect location but I can't speak enough about her professionalism and constant communication throughout the whole process. My wife was very particular about what she wanted and Mikayla was able to scout and send her a number of gorgeous views to pick from. When our big day arrived, due to the fires we were not able to get to our first location. Without hesitation, Mikayla was able to pivot and help us choose another location. The second choice however was extremely windy on our big day and Mikayla suggested it would be best to go to the third location. This location ended up being the absolute most beautiful thing I have ever seen in nature. Mikayla made us feel comfortable the entire time she was taking pictures. Our gallery came out better than I could have ever imagined and we feel so lucky that we had Mikayla there to capture this special moment. To whoever may be reading this, I can assure you without hesitation that Mikayla is the best to ever do it. Let her make your forever moment perfect. I promise you, besides tying the knot, it'll be the best decision you make. To Mikayla, We just want you to know that we still tear up and get emotional looking at our pictures. You are so amazing at what you do and we can't wait to have you shoot Scarlett's wedding one day. I genuinely can't thank you enough for everything!!! Much love, The Hartley's

Mikayla was amazing from the start! I reached out to her to plan a photo session for my husband and me. She asked what a liked/wanted out of the session, found locations and talked through each of her suggestions. We ended up picking a location with some off-roading, and she helped us with transportation. During the session, it was easy to see Mikayla's attention to detail, excitement, and energy! She was extremely fun to be around, offered so much advice, and was always on the lookout for the best photo spots. She had many poses up her sleeve which made the session fun and upbeat. Honestly, it would have been hard to not have fun. The photos were beyond my expectations - extremely beautiful. My husband and I still talk about how cool the whole experience was. It wasn't just photos: it was hiking, driving, being outside, good company, and AMAZING photos. She offers the whole package

Here’s my advice, stop looking at other photographers and go ahead and book Mikayla! I can’t even remember how I found her but I am SOO happy I did. My now husband and I booked a trip to Colorado in place of what was supposed to be our honeymoon (thanks COVID) and then just 2 weeks before we were set to leave, we decided to elope while we were in the mountains. I started reaching out to photographers to figure out if this would even be remotely possible to plan in such a short time. Mikayla was super fast to respond and so easy-going. We set up a phone call to chat about the details and she even sent over some good trails for an elopement before I had signed a contract or given her a deposit. I already loved her work, but after the phone call I knew for sure to go with her for our elopement. We met her the evening of our elopement (which I didn’t even tell her our final location choice until that morning - I mentioned how easy-going she is right?!) and of course it was pouring rain. She was super optimistic and reassured me the rain would pass (we didn’t really have a plan B). Well, she was right, it did! Our entire elopement experience was amazing and we were so thankful to have Mikayla there to capture it for us. She is so kind, funny, and energetic. My husband even said working with Mikayla was “the best service industry experience he’s ever had.” Her turn around time for sneak peaks and the full gallery were phenomenal (under 36 hours for sneak and under 2.5 weeks for the full gallery). And of course, we loved the photos!!! My only regret is that we did not book the full 4 hours for our elopement. I really wish we had more time!

OH MY GOODNESS I cannot recommend Mikayla Renee Photo enough! My fiancé and I flew out to Colorado this past weekend for our engagement shoot in the mountains with Mikayla. From the start she was wonderful to work with. We provided her the general area we wanted our pictures and she came back with so many suggestions and pictures for us to choose our favorite. It was our first time ever getting professional photos and naturally we were a little nervous. As soon as we met her in person she made us feel instantly relaxed. She was so good at incorporating our pup in the photos and truly captured the most amazing shots!! Our friends and family are equally as obsessed with our pictures as we are. Not only is she an awesome human being but she is so incredibly talented. If you are looking for a photographer in the Colorado area who has already done the hard work of scouting locations for you then Mikayla is your girl! Side note: did I mentioned she got our photos back to us in TWO days?! It was such a nice surprise to get them back even before the promised timeframe.
