I am a Colorado Wedding Photographer who has been in Business for 10 years. I have photographed somewhere around 250 weddings and countless engagement sessions.
I specialize in a 'adventure wedding and engagement style'
When I say adventure, I don't mean WHAT YOU DO.
I mean HOW YOU DO IT.
One of my favorite things about my own marriage is that adventurous love my husband and I have for each other. Im talking about the more trivial stuff like loving exploring and traveling, but I’m also talking about the serious adventure of life. The adventure of being parents, the adventure of being us both small business owners and all the challenges that come with it, the adventure of home improvement projects and daily life together. All of it is our adventure together. So when I say I want to capture your adventure, I’m not trying to cram you into some REI loving, hiking boot wearing, snowboarding category.
I want to invest about your idea adventure, the things you do together, the things that make your day, the things that bring you joy and the things that make you love wildly.
Adventure Photography is different for me.
Being a Colorado Adventure Photographer doesn't mean that I only photograph hiking elopements.
In fact, I photograph all kinds of weddings, all over the world with all kinds of people.
Adventure isn't a specific activity or style.
It's an attitude.
It's the way you approach life.
Adventure Photography is simply an elevated way of capturing TRUE, GENUINE moments because you are doing something that actually brings you JOY.
And isn’t that the goal? To capture you in this stage and season of your life? To remind yourselves of the past chapters of adventure and help you plan for the future ones? To remind yourselves how much you love each other when your season is tough? To show your kids and grandkids what they should look for in their futures? These photos last forever. It’s not something to just “get over with”.... it’s a moment in your life that will forever be preserved. Do it right. Make sure your adventure story is told.
Married to my wonderful husband for 10 years this year! Together for 13 years. He is also a small business owner and at times you may see him working with me, especially on winter weddings.
We enjoy traveling together, being awesome business teammates and working on our beautiful garden and yard.
My crazy little boy who made me a Mom
5 years ago. Full of spirit, energy and self confidence. We enjoy traveling the world with him. He has visited over 30 countries on 3 continents so far. You can usually find us in the backyard, playing hockey or baseball, on an airplane or in my office where he usually plays legos, fighter jets or outer space while I edit.
I've been in business for 11 years now.
I've photographed over 250 weddings and over 1000 portrait sessions. About 4 years into business, I was hired by my first Major League Baseball client and over the last 6+ years I have photographed over 20 MLB Weddings and Sessions. I've had work published all over the world and have won prestigious awards, but I pride myself on my personal relationship with my clients.
Hey guys! My name is Callie Riesling and I hope I can be your photographer. Like I said earlier, this is a very important decision and isn't something to rush. It is important you pick someone who you mesh well with because it truly will determine how much you love your photos.
I have a true passion for loving and serving others. It is a God given quality and I love letting it shine through my work to glorify my creator.
I also am constantly amazed by the world around me. This sense of wonder isn't going anywhere. I have lived in Colorado almost my entire life and still every time I go over one of the passes. I am greatly fueled by the places and people around me and I hope you can see it in my work.
Everything you see here is authentic. These aren't images from models or workshops. This is real love. Authenticity in all it's beauty.
YES. THESE ARE FROM ACTUAL COUPLES.
IS ALL MY HYPE FOR REAL?
When you look at Instagram, you see the VERY best of what a photographer has to offer.
When you look at other websites, you may see 5-10 of their favorite images.
I mean, some of those aren't even real weddings - they might be from a styled shoot or workshop
But what about the rest of the wedding day?
Did they get those moments?
Or are they just creative and good at posing?
Did they just stage everything?
Not here guys. Not with me.
That's the reason I have so many (too many) photos in my main slideshow.
My photography is more than just a couple of 'curated' good images.
All these weddings are REAL CLIENTS. No workshops or styled shoots here.
So for the sake of true, honest, transparency...
HERE ARE A FEW REAL, BEGINNING TO END WEDDINGS
