The most important thing to me is the ability to see and tell your love story. It is TRULY one of the greatest honors to be able to capture people in their expressive, honest, and raw loves.  
 
I get emotional watching the way partners look and interact with one another. I love to create emotional and meaningful photography sessions and document the important moments throughout weddings and elopements.

Where are you located? Do you charge a travel fee for weddings not in your location?

I'm located in Denver, Colorado! I charge a small travel fee to cities outside of a 20 mile radius of my location within Colorado. For out of state or international weddings, contact me for info :)

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

Meraki Wedding Photography has a lifestyle approach. I love to capture candid moments but I am also not afraid to give direction and stylize images. My editing style is often referred to as vibrant, moody, and colorful with plenty of raw and honest emotion.

What's the typical wedding coverage package that you offer? What is the price?

I create custom proposals and packages based on my couples' needs. With that in mind my most popular package is $3500 and include 8 hours of coverage, an engagement session, with the option of a second photographer!

Do you have a studio where we can meet? Do you use Skype?

I use FaceTime or audio calls and if you're local I LOVE to chat over coffee or drinks.

What are your professional degrees, credentials, affiliations? Have you taken any recent educational workshops or classes?

I studied English and Communications oddly enough! I had my business throughout my years in college. My education was more self taught and I learned in an incredible community of photographers in Colorado. This helped me keep the passion and creative nature alive.

Is there anything else you'd like to share about yourself?

In my spare time I love checking out new restaurants, spending copious amounts of time with my family, hiking in our stunning mountains, playing with (and obsessing over) any puppy that comes my way, writing music and poetry, and checking out the local art scene. 
 
Getting to know my clients is so important and I will probably be obsessing over all your wedding details and your romantic love story. 
 
I'm the type of person who will cry when capturing the father of the bride dancing with his daughter and the person who will laugh at all jokes made during speeches. It is an honor and the highlight of my day to be a part of such a significant event in your life.

Annaleisa did both our engagement shots and our wedding and we couldn't be happier! She is one of the most friendly and genuinely nice people we've ever met, and she made us feel so comfortable. She is more of a friend than just a wedding vendor. The shots turned out beautiful and were exactly what we wanted. 10/10, I do recommend!

Definitely 5 stars for Meraki Wedding Photography! My husband and I recently got married in Lake City, CO, but live in Texas and so planning from afar was not the easiest; however, Annaleisa made the photography process so painless and she truly was an absolute delight to work with!

She was very professional, sweet, attentive to details, and just overall a genuinely great person and photographer! It literally brought tears to my eyes when e got our pictures back. She captured so many amazing candid moments, along with the photo list I had sent her. She was so flexible throughout the day Read More (my husband and I were both running behind on the wedding morning), but she just went with it and was such a huge help all day!

I feel so grateful that she was our photographer and everybody really enjoyed her company! I HIGHLY recommend Annaleisa and Meraki Wedding Photography!
