Some of my earliest memories are in a car, traveling up dirt roads and mountain towns with my grandparents, singing songs and listening to them teach me about the history of the region. My Ahpa (dad in Korean), gifted me his father's camera when I was 17, and we followed those same roads and spent hours taking photos of anything and everything any chance we got. Although my first camera has outlived my Ahpa and Grandpa in my home, those memories of my passion being born and my love for the Great Plains will never die. From the red rocks in the deserts of New Mexico, the saguaros in Arizona, the mountains and pines in Colorado, and the urban city in Las Vegas, I am inspired by these long-living places, and even moreso by the love stories hidden within them.
With a heart for traveling and an eye for the moments that often escape us, I aim to take photos that don't just look like you, but FEEL like you, too. I want you to look at your photos and fully remember the moments that would otherwise be left to the faulty interpretation of memory. The way the sun felt on your shoulders, the way the snow allowed you to embrace one another in a comforting hug, the way the desert sand radiated heat during the day, and cooled off at night as the stars danced in celebration of your love... That is the stuff that makes your photos magical. And I'm here to bring that magic to life.

For so long, we've been told by society the way our weddings should be ornate, stressful to plan, and that we have to invite all of our family, even the aunt you know will get too drunk and the cousin you hardly know. A white dress at a venue with cake and did I mention stress? Okay, just checking!
Well guess what? I SAY NO MORE. Intimate weddings and elopements are the answer to a kickass day! It's about going to a place that resonates within you, either as a place you visit regularly or a place you've never been, but calls your soul home. It's about foregoing expectation and choosing to revel in the love and excitement of a day that's unique to you. It's reclaiming the power and spending a day focused on only the things that speak to you and your love, with just a few (if any) guests at all.
And guess what? You don't have to be an outdoor aficionado to elope in Colorado or anywhere else! I'll walk you through every part of planning, permits, and dreaming your big day, and also take some bomb ass portraits of you too! All while hyping you up, and probably shedding a tear or two while you say your vows. Whether you're dreaming of a waterfall elopement, an intimate wedding in the desert, a laid-back ceremony in the city, or an out of town getaway, count me in!
Breelle was incredible! She made sure to work with our schedules and was very accommodating! She was very pleasant and fun to shoot with and had some great Colorado spots! She was a trooper dealing with the snow to capture the true outdoors of Colorado! She got our pictures back to us very quickly and we are obsessed with how they turned out! I was also thrilled she brought dresses with her so I could do wardrobe changes! So happy with this experience!!

Best wedding and portrait photographer in Colorado. Her photos are elegant, timeless, and capture moments in the most beautiful light. She is very professional yet personable which makes for a natural-flowing photo shoot leading to effortlessly beautiful portraits. The cost is worth the quality.

Breelle is everything and more you could ever want in a photographer. My now wife and I were searching for a photographer for our wedding day and she found Breelle through her Instagram. After a facetime meeting with her we knew that she was the person we wanted to document our special day. She's incredibly easy to get along with and very funny while also being an absolute professional.
On the day of our wedding she truly went above and beyond anything we could have asked for. She worked her butt off all day and took truly the most fantastic photos we could've hoped for. We're so glad that when we look back on our photos of our wedding that we will have such beautiful pictures to see for the rest of our lives.
If you're looking for an incredible photographer and incredible person to do your photos I cannot recommend Breelle enough. She's the best!!
