WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

From the ski resorts in the Colorado Rockies to the rugged landscape of the Idaho wilderness, we believe there’s no place more beautiful to wed than the Mountain West and have been fortunate enough to photograph mountain weddings exclusively since 2004.  But that doesn’t mean we’ll turn your wedding in to a photo shoot for Instagram.  Because no matter where your wedding takes place, at the heart of every wedding are the people, your people, that have come far and wide to celebrate this sacred moment in time.  The mountain peaks, rainbows and occasional deer that seem to always end up in our photographs…those are simply a bonus.

ABOUT

ABOUT

Hi there! I’m Michele, owner of ONCE WEST. I photograph weddings and families in Colorado & Idaho with a mission to create authentic, joy-filled photographs honoring the simple fact that we never get the same moment twice. When I’m not working you’re most likely to find me camping or flying with my husband (and bff) somewhere around the Mountain West.
