Denver Wedding Photographer




Denver Wedding Photographer


Top Wedding Photographer in Denver

Hi, my name is Sean Lara, and I’m a Denver wedding photographer that specializes in capturing real emotions and fine art while incorporating Colorado’s vivid landscape.  The Mile High City is one of the most beautiful and unique places in the country to host a wedding and it’s home to some interesting architecture and urban settings. And, of course, it’s just a short drive away to the mountains where one can view some of the jaw-dropping scenery that Colorado and the Rocky Mountains are famous for. As Colorado’s biggest city, there’s no shortage of photo opportunities. If you’re planning on hosting a wedding here in Denver, you’ve obviously chosen a very unique and special place to host it. Why not let your photography experience be just as special?

Some of the many wedding venues you can expect to find in the mile-high city include the Denver Botanic Gardens, Clock Tower Events, Hudson Gardens, Ironworks, Washington Park Boathouse, Denver Nature & Science Museum, Denver Botanic Gardens at Chatfield Farms, Lionsgate Event Center, and so much more. 

As a Denver-based photographer, what’s most enjoyable for me is the ability to incorporate the beautiful Colorado scenery into wedding images, and you’ll see this in my environmental portrait style. I’ve been capturing weddings and events for twelve years now, and pride myself on being able to successfully tie in the natural elements of city-scapes, mountains, wildlife, and other scenery into photos of brides and grooms while not taking too much focus away from the important subjects.



I was recently voted as one of the best wedding photographers in Colorado (and top five in the world) by the Wedding Photojournalist Association. What this means for your special day is that you’ll get phenomenal keepsakes that you’ll be able to share with family and friends for generations. I’ve been capturing weddings for over a decade with the majority of my career spent in this area, which means I can provide you with a variety of unique locations for your wedding, engagement, or couple’s session. 

My goal is to make your photo feel as natural and authentic as possible. To achieve this, I capture weddings in a photojournalist style, focusing on candid moments and emotions. However, that’s not to say I won’t give you plenty of direction when it comes to posing and the timeline of your day. I’m best known for my environmental portraits, so if you love mountains, trees, lakes and all of the natural beauty this state has to offer, then you’ve come to the right artist. I offer a lot of services including traditional weddings, elopements, vow renewals, day-after sessions, and anything relating to capturing your love!


If you’re also looking for engagement photos, there are plenty of opportunities in and near the city. Most of the couples I work with want to capture their pre-wedding session either in the mountains or at a local park and if you decide to choose me as your photographer, I’ll make plenty of suggestions based on your needs. My engagement sessions typically run about 90 minutes, but we can certainly extend that if you’re looking for something more custom. If you want to get out of the city or travel to another state, that is an option as well!



I have collections to help accommodate most budgets with options starting at $2650 for elopements and $4875 for weddings during the regular season. Reach out to me to set up a time to chat to see which options would work best for you, and we can always create a custom package!
