Hello All, My Name Is Francis. A Boulder, Colorado Based, Wedding & Elopement Photographer & Filmmaker. I'm Dedicated To Helping Create, Plan, And Visually Capture The Most Memorable Day Of Your Life Through Photographs & Films.

LET'S GET TO KNOW EACH OTHER
HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME
A LITTLE ABOUT ME
I started photographing weddings in 2016 and quickly fell in love with helping couples capture their perfect day and haven’t looked back since. Since moving to Colorado, I've shifted my focus to Elopements & Intimate Weddings, and really found the sweet spot for creating my best work.
Very simply put, I have a chill nature and love to spend the majority of my time with friends and family. My wife Elsa & I moved to Boulder, Colorado the day after our wedding in July of 2018, and have really enjoyed the cool summer evenings and the occasional snowfall.
You can generally find me trying to cook the creole foods I grew up eating, or drinking tea with a nice mountain view while making travel plans to Elsa & I's next mountain getaway.
A few other things I love to do & talk about: anything outdoors related, hiking mountains, skiing mountains, photographing mountains while hiking & skiing (you get the idea), indie/alternative music, and making coffee or tea while eating everything Elsa bakes.
SCROLL FOR MORE
I take photographs because I want to remember, reflect, and share. One of my fondest memories of looking at photographs came from the legacy that my grandparents lived. We would always flip through their photo books, as they told us the story of each photograph, the places they had been, and the people they had met. A true life of love and adventure.
It's the nostalgia and warm feelings that take you back to the exact moment. Re-creating the emotions you felt on that day, only years & decades later. It's a feeling that can and will never be taken away or forgotten.
To me, photographs create a visual legacy that can live on well past our time, and invoke memories of the bigger picture of life, and I’d love to share that journey and experience with you.
jUST A LITTLE BIT FURTHER!
I make films because I'm a big believer in the medium. It's where sound, motion, & the entire moment(s) come together and are exactly as they were. While photographs can pull an emotional feeling of a particular moment, films let you fully re-live the exact scene forever. There's something about letting your future family & generations re-live the day with you that you just can put into words. They'll hear your voices, see your passion & see your love story unfold in its grandest fashion.
I'm also not your typical wedding filmmaker. We'll take a deep dive into the aspects of your relationship and create a film that's uniquely you, and leave all the traditional wedding fluff behind, and find ways to focus on you for who you truly are. Who really wants 5 minutes of footage that only shows you getting ready & having your photo taken?

A FEW ADVENTURES WE'VE HAD
A trip to the San Juans in the late summer. We found an incredible lodge tucked away in the mountains, and enjoyed some time away from the busyness of life.
JUST US, THE MOUNTAINS, AND A LODGE TUCKED AWAY IN THE SAN JUANS.
A quick trip to Great Sand Dunes National Park. It was a bit windy (typical) but was beautiful as always. I highly recommend making the trek up to the top of High Dune.
VIEWS FROM THE MOST BEAUTIFUL TERRAIN COLORADO HAS TO OFFER
One of our favorite things is exploring around Rocky Mountain National Park. This day in particular was one of the most incredible sunsets we've seen to date. We just sat on Trail Ridge Road & soaked it in as the sun fell over the range.
SUNSET QUICKLY TURNED INTO DUSK AS THE SUN FADED BEHIND THE PEAKS
We got married, moved to Colorado, then went to the Tetons & Yellowstone just a few days later. It was a crazy turn of events, but an overall incredible experience.
