Colorado Engagement Photography
-Jordan + Holly's Colorado Camping Engagement Session -
By Destination Wedding Photographer - Callie Riesling
I am a native. Not a lot of people in Colorado can say that anymore. I don't have anything against most of the transplants haha, but I will tell you that my childhood was awesome because I grew up here in Colorado.
My favorite special summer activities as a kid were always Rockies games and camping. There is just something extraord
I am already a little bit behind sharing this as we are already into 2018, but 2017 was packed with incredible clients, awesome adventures and a lot of love. I haven't even been able to share 98% of the full blogs for these weddings which is just killing me! So for now, here are the highlights. And there are quite a few of them! -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This gorgeous destination wedding took all of us, including the bride and groom from Colorado to Santa Barbara, CA and some guests from even further. From the start, Josh and Dvetta had a beautiful and intimate wedding day in mind. When they booked with me, they knew that they would be staying at the stunning Fess Parker Double Tree right across the street from the crashing Pacific waves. They were talking about getting married there, but wanted my opinion since I know Califo
I was so thrilled when Brian and Annie asked me if I could also photograph their Keystone Ranch Hayride Rehearsal Dinner. Their families came from all over the country to attend their wedding, so Brian and Annie had a very large group for their rehearsal dinner. We took a hayride with gorgeous and sweet horses up to Keystone's Original Homestead through Soda Creek Valley. My assistant Jen and I took the hayride up with them and photographed everyone having a blast drinking, d
So lets start by talking about emotion.
I've photographed well over 100 weddings and I think Teo was one of the most sincerely loving grooms I have ever seen. He was so genuinely lost in the moment during their vows and so very full of joy. Even with his rugged and manly exterior, he let his emotions overcome him and get lost in the moment. That is something I don't see often, even with the high amount of weddings I have been a part of. I've seen a few grooms tear up and qui
These gorgeous photos were taken on Teo + Leslie's private ranch in Evergreen!

Kevin and Tessa's gorgeous Summer Solstice wedding took place at Dry Gulch in Breckenridge, CO high on the mountainside with the beautiful peaks in the distance!

Patrick and Sam were married the end of July at the Wedgewood Black Forest (formerly the Pinery Colorado Springs). They flew all the way from their new home in Switzerland to their old home of Colorado to get married with their friends and family present! As you can see by their sweet demeanor and affection, they are really awesome people... so they even had some friends come to their wedding from locations all over the world including some from Europe and South America! Thei
Dan graduated from the USAFA just a few days before their wedding! They timed it so that their family would be able to be in town for both, so it was a very busy couple of days for Dan and Janelle! They were married at Farish Recreational Area which is on US Air Force Academy land in Woodland Park, CO! Which has the most beautiful view of Pikes Peak! After their amazing Ceremony and some bridal portraits on Farish, we headed to Garden of the Gods to take some more couple port
Chris and Martha chose their home church for their gorgeous ceremony where Martha even sings in the choir on Sundays! The First United Methodist Church in Downtown Colorado Springs is a gorgeous location for a wedding and has several beautiful locations outside for the portraits, which is pretty rare for many churches! The lighting was perfect and we were blessed with sunshine and good weather! (Which in Colorado, you never know! We could have had a blizzard!)
One of the th
We had such a fantastic time in California when we visited a little while back and I was just thrilled to book such a wonderful couple while we were visiting! Chris and Nikki are your typical southern California surfers. They love the ocean, the sun and the sand and their amazing chemistry made for some fabulous photos! This session is something that I have wanted to do since I started my business almost 5 years ago and it is even better than I had dreamed! They say that the
First of all, lets get this all straight so you guys know who I am talking about! Jordan is the handsome guy in this session and Jordyn is the gorgeous lady! So anyway, I did Jordan's senior portraits a while back and I was ecstatic when he contacted me several months ago to set up this surprise engagement session. He is in the Navy and was coming back for leave before his big move to Spain, where he was being stationed. He told Jordyn that he wanted to take some nice photos
We love getting fabulous emails telling us how awesome we are! Lol! It was such a wonderful email to come home to after our little getaway to Southern California! We can't wait to hang that one up in our office!
