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.

WIFE

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.

MOMMA

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.

WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

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.

SCROLL DOWN

DEAN + DELANEY

Callie had such an impact on our wedding day, far beyond the gift of her beautiful photos.

She acted as a coordinator,

hair stylist, and friend.

We would hire her 1,000 more times!

CARSON + CORRIE

Callie is AMAZING!

She took what we love doing as a couple and turned it into beautiful engagement photos — the photos are so memorable because they involve our passion and lifestyle. No other photographers out there can compare to Callie!!

NICK + ADRIANNA

Callie is the most realistic and understandable photographer and all around great person. She values family even with the craziness they all bring.! I wish I could go back and thank her all over again. She is smart she plans everything and LISTENS. We are so unbelievably grateful for you Callie.

SEAN + SHANNON

Callie is always willing to go the extra mile to get the PERFECT shot. From stepping into an ice cold lake at 4am to hiking over 12,000 ft at sunset. Simply the best!

JONATHAN + KRISTI

Callie is so down to earth that she made our engagement and wedding sessions feel so natural and fun. We felt that we not only walked away with one of a kind, beautiful pictures but a new friend!
We may have to do a renewal of vows just to hire you again!!


 

PHIL + EMILY

Callie’s photos speak for themselves, but what a photo won’t tell you about Callie is that she truly cares about capturing her clients’ special day. When Callie’s flight was canceled due to weather in the Midwest, Callie packed a car and drove the 1,600 miles way to make it in time for our day (bless her heart for not telling me until she made it!!!!!!!). Day of, Callie ran the [photo] show and made things so stress-free for us.

She’ll work around your vision and you will not be disappointed in the photos you get! 

 

VINCE + ALYSSA

was more than willing to drive up to Loveland Pass after essentially no sleep from a wedding the previous day to produce BREATHTAKING sunrise photographs! She had all the energy in the world and our friends are still gushing from those photos!

SCOTT + ASHLEY

Callie was incredible and so welcoming for our shoot in St.Kitts! Not only did she make us feel so comfortable, we had so much fun! She truly is amazing at what she does!!

CHRIS + JESSICA

Callie was more than our photographer, she was a part of our wedding. She was not just a shadow in the background taking pictures, but someone that truly helped make our special day extra special with her charming personality and willingness to lend a helping hand.

Callie is an extraordinary photographer who pays great attention to detail, makes you feel comfortable and at-ease, and truly embodies the spirit of adventure. From hiking through the mountains for our engagement session, to traveling thousands of miles to photograph our elopement in Ireland, Callie exceeded our expectations.

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 

This way, you will know what to expect on your wedding day - The full story + what the actual couple had do say about it!
