Mandy + Bryce | Horsetooth Reservoir | Fort Collins, Colorado Wedding Photographer

This Fort Collins, Colorado family session of Mandy and Bryce is just the best thing ever! We photographed their anniversary session at Horsetooth Reservoir in Fort Collins, Colorado capturing family pictures with their newest family member – Penny Lane! How sweet is this King Charles Cocker Spaniel?? I could take her picture all day! Oh, and that gorgeous backdrop? I just LOVE finding water in Colorado. That is the one thing I miss about living on the coast my whole life, so anytime I find these fun hidden gems in Colorado I go crazy with pictures!! Enjoy!

San Francisco, California Ranch Wedding | Destination Wedding Photographer | Alison Epps Photography

In November I had the absolute honor of documenting this stunning San Francisco, California Ranch wedding alongside Carrie King as her assistant. Now I want to move to Cali! The wedding was at a private friends family ranch just outside San Francisco and this girl (ME) was just oozing with inspiration in that beautiful state. I also had so much fun wandering San Fran with no one but my camera one morning, but that is a different blog post for a different day. Also, how fun are these horses?! I couldn’t stop taking their pictures!!

Brad + Hayley | Savannah, Georgia Wedding | Colorado Destination Wedding Photographer

Brad and Hayley are from Golden, Colorado, but were planning their destination wedding in Savannah, Georgia. Of course I was thrilled when searching for their perfect photographer they came across my work, but for more reasons that you’d think! First, they knew they were having a destination wedding in Savannah so they were SO excited to learn I had lived and worked there for about 5 years photographing weddings. Now, out here in Colorado I could photograph both their engagement session and their wedding in Georgia too!! Aside from that, Brad seemed to have a keen interest in my photography particularly because he is a nature photographer himself, and uses film!!! A few details to note was that Hayleys friends wanted to incorporate Colorado into…

Bouzek Family Session | Chatfield State Park | Colorado Family Photographer

Sara and her precious family asked me to photograph them right around the time she found out she had miscarried. She lost interest in the shoot and told me her family didn’t feel complete. I nudged her to do the shoot since she’d said she didn’t have very many pictures just the three of them and she hesitated but eventually agreed. After the shoot, here is what she wrote. “Peace is what I feel when looking at these. I want to say thank you to Alison Epps for being a friend, a photographer and involuntarily being a support system this fall. On September 9th we miscarried. And I honestly didn’t want to think about family photos — I kept putting it off but Alison asked…

Dorsten Family | Denver, Colorado Family Photographer | Lone Tree Family Session

This is Brenna, Matt and Jane. They are the sweetest family of three that you’ll ever meet. I went to high school with Brenna a little while ago (I won’t say how many years ago because it makes me feel too old) and shortly after college Brenna and Matt moved to Denver. When I was looking to move here I immediately contacted Brenna to get the scoop on the best locations to live, the best breweries in town and best child-friendly activities. Jane and my daughter Hadley instantly became friends and the rest is history. :) I was so excited when Brenna told me they’d not ever done real family photos, and immediately got to thinking where we could make some beautiful images for them….
