Colorado Wedding Photographers

Keystone | Breckenridge | Vail | Beaver Creek | Steamboat Springs | Winter Park

We make photos with ease for laid-back couples that want to party (not pose) in the mountains. 

We work efficiently and unobtrusively so that you can spend more time with your people and still get beautiful, meaningful photos that you’ll enjoy for a lifetime.

We understand the stakes are high when it comes to choosing a wedding photographer.

Your wedding lasts a day, photographs last forever.

Most couples we meet want beautiful photos but aren’t excited about the process. At the end of the day, our couples are elated by how fun and easy it was. And when they receive their photos, they’re thrilled to see the true essence of their day was preserved, not staged.

“We are beyond blown away.”

“You were such a joy to work with throughout the entire process.  We loved your relaxed approach because we truly got to enjoy every moment of the day.  We cannot thank you enough.”  -Jamienne


We are Mark & Michele

We are a husband and wife team that has been photographing mountain weddings throughout the Colorado Rockies since 2004. In that time, we’ve been published in various magazines and blogs, and while that’s been awesome there is nothing better than giving couples photographs that show them all the layers of love in their life; photos that will evoke joy for decades to come. That’s why we do what we do. We care deeply about those that step in front of our cameras and trust us with their memories.

What our clients are saying…

“There are not only pictures of myself that I like, but ones that I LOVE.  I never knew that was possible.”


“Michele & Mark were INCREDIBLE.”


“I recommend ONCE WEST 100%!!”


My husband and I wanted classic photos that didn’t feel too posey or unnaturally filtered and they delivered on all fronts.

We are wedding photographers serving Colorado’s mountain towns.

We believe your photos are only as good as the experience you had with your photographer while making them.  And we know what it’s like to see your wedding go by in the blink of an eye.  That’s why we prioritize you spending quality time with your people, rather than turning your day in to a photo shoot.  From now until the day you receive your photos, we’re here to make your experience fun, easy, and stress-free.  Simply set up a call and if you dig our vibe, select a package and payment plan that works for you.  You’re officially booked as soon as you sign a contract and pay a retainer.  Let’s connect and start a conversation so that you can discover that photography doesn’t have to be awkward or a time-consuming hassle and start getting excited about seeing your life photographed in a way it never has been before.
