Fort Collins Wedding Photographer
I’m Sean, a Fort Collins Photographer specializing in wedding photography, engagement photography, senior portraits and family portraits. I have a passion for capturing love stories and offer some of the best artistic photography in the country. I’ve been a full time wedding photographer since 2010, and was recently voted by a panel of judges with the Wedding Photojournalist Association as one of the top 5 wedding photographers in the world.
I take a photojournalist approach focusing on capturing real moments and emotions while putting an artistic edge on our images and I’m best known for my magical lighting techniques, creativity and environmental portraiture.
As your photographer for any Colorado wedding or other event, I pride myself with providing you the quality service you deserve in a fun and professional manner.
I’m based in Fort Collins but frequently capture photos in Estes Park, Rocky Mountain National Park, Denver, Boulder, Wyoming and the surrounding areas. I’m also quite familiar and comfortable with capturing celebrations all around the world as a destination wedding photographer – I’ll go anywhere.
Do these qualities seem like something you want for your wedding?
• REAL photos that are not overly edited, or look unnatural. Nothing in my portfolio was created using AI or was overly processed/manipulated. All of the locations, scenery and lighting you see are 100% legit.
• Environmental Portraits that show off the beautiful scenery, as well as a mix of more traditional photographs that your entire family will love.
• A photographer with 14+ years and 550+ weddings of experience.
• A super dope dude that knows how to have fun with you. This includes the occasional dad joke (sorry, not sorry).
• Confidence and peace of mind that all the important moments will be captured with minimal investment or direction on your end. You get to relax and enjoy your day while getting super awesome photos.
Fort Collins Photographer
In addition to capturing weddings all over the country, I’m also a photographer in Fort Collins that specializes in all types of portraiture. I started my career back in 2009 as a photographer for a division of the Los Angeles Times which granted me the experience to cover multiple assignments. I’m regularly employed to capture family photos, business headshots, professional branding images, engagement photos, graduation photos and more. Whether you need photo for your Christmas card or photos for your entire staff, I’m your photographer!

Highly recommend! Bethany Wilcox 2023-05-06 Sean was an incredible photographer for our wedding. In addition to being very friendly and great to work with, he has amazing vision and great equipment.

Ryann Adams 2022-09-28 Sean was the most professional, thoughtful and honestly the photographer of our dreams! We got married in Estes Park, Colorado and Sean not only knew the best places to stop in Rocky Mountain National park for our first look photos but even saved the day with having a sewing kit and helped my husband fix his suit before our ceremony! His sense of humor helped us so much with our ceremony nerves and his cues while photographing us made it fun, comfortable and a beautiful experience. I can't say enough how all our guests LOVED Sean and if you have the option - add on his photo booth to your wedding experience, all the guests loved it and said it was so great to have at our wedding. Additionally, with his experience he knows so many vendors and works diligently to make sure your wedding timeline is smooth and all the important moments are captured. All in all, Sean is an absolute legend and is worth booking in advance to ensure you have the best, most experienced photographer at your special day. Thank you so much, Sean!!
