I am artistic and always have been! Ever since I purchased my first digital SLR camera when I was 15 years old I knew exactly what I wanted to do in life, be a photographer. I love everything arts and crafts, organizing, yoga and being out in the sunshine as much as I can. The Rocky Mountains are my second home. It gives me life and energy to travel around the world with my best friend. Marrying Nathan Ballmann was the best decision I ever made.
Hi! We're Nate and Grace. Before we got married we each had separate photography businesses. Our love of photography was a large factor to the start of our relationship. We were also slightly attracted to each other’s good looks. In June of 2015 we eagerly committed our love and lives to each other and have been happily married since!
I am outgoing and easygoing. I like my coffee black, staying up late, hot tub time with friends, a cold beer on a hot summer day, flying, health, fitness and if something has the word dangerous or risky associated with it - count me in. The outdoors (especially the mountains) captivate me. I also love learning new things. I feel as if I can never learn enough. This may be the reason for my overly large stack of books to read each year.
We have been photographers for over a decade. Your wedding day is the most important day of your life! The family, the friends, the tears laughs and smiles. And most importantly, committing your love and lives to each other. These moments are priceless. That’s why we believe the most meaningful and timeless decision you will make for your wedding is your photographer. Having gone through the wedding process ourselves, we are able to relate with our couples on a more genuine and personal level. We love this! This empowers us to create stunning images that will truly reflect who you are as a couple One of our most popular and cherished compliments is that our couples feel comfortable and have fun during their photo session.Your story is unique to you and your fiancé, you should not be treated as ‘just another couple’ or ‘just another wedding’.

We want the wedding day to be enjoyable and relaxing for both the bride and the groom. One way we accomplish this is by keeping everyone on the same page via a wedding day photography timeline.

Everyone knows when they need to be dressed, where they need to be for photos and what time they need to be there.

When they are completed we will send you a link to your online gallery where you can view them from your phone or computer as well as download them. If you ordered an album you will also be receiving this in addition to your online gallery.
