You’ve found your person and your magical day is just around the corner! My job is to make it easy for you; sit back, relax, and enjoy your wedding day while I capture the moments that you’ll remember forever. I work with couples to photograph weddings, elopements, engagements, and proposals. I live in Colorado and shoot all over.

truly, madly,

My photography style is a fun mix of candid and posed shots. While there won’t be any stray hair ties on your wrist or beer cans in the background, you can guarantee I’ll catch you two gazing into each other’s eyes when you think no one’s looking! I’m constantly looking for that perfect shot, but always make sure you and your partner come first.

Missed out on the hors d’oeuvres and feeling hangry? I’ll grab you a plate. Want to sneak away for a few smooches with your sweetheart? Don’t worry, I’ll cover for you. It’s your day and I’m so thrilled I can support you!

Our latest news is that my fiancé, Chris, has joined  the Meraki team for videography services! We're excited to be the (second) best duo on your day.  

Hi friends,
I'm Annaleisa!

Feel awkward in photos? No biggie, everybody does - even me! I’m all about helping the couples I photograph feel comfortable, confident, and empowered to show their true selves.  My job is to make it as easy as possible for you to sit back and enjoy your day.

 We were so comfortable and confident with her there. She was the mastermind behind the Colorado Elopement Giveaway that we won, so this would not have happened without her. She is not only incredibly talented but she’s one of the most spectacular people on this earth. When we got our engagement and wedding photos back we were blown away. We felt like she captured us completely. Please do yourself a favor and stop looking for another photographer, Annaleisa is the best of the best. 

"From our engagement shoot to our wedding day Annaleisa made us feel like our life long friend was just snapping photos of us."

 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 we got our pictures back. I feel so grateful that she was our photographer and everybody really enjoyed her company! I HIGHLY recommend Annaleisa and Meraki Wedding Photography!"

"Definitely 5 stars for Meraki Wedding Photography!

"Annaleisa did both our engagement shots and our wedding and we couldn't be happier! 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!"

"She is one of the most friendly and genuinely nice people we've ever met, and she made us feel so comfortable. "

I knew she'd be a good fit because she was communicative and attentive throughout the planning process. On the big day she was timely and professional, but more importantly warm, kind, patient, and flexible. We were thrilled with our experience with her long before we even saw the end product. She gave us the greatest gift - a gallery that illustrates all the love and joy of our marriage."

"Annaleisa captured our wedding PERFECTLY."

"Annaleisa is amazingly talented. After our first conversation, we knew she was who we wanted to celebrate with."

Not only does she have a great eye for photography, she also has a unique gift to make people feel special and to bring joy to others. This joy shines through in her photos and is great for people who aren’t super comfortable in front of a camera, or people like me who do not know what to do with their hands in photos. Our wedding and engagement photos from her are truly perfect, and we are so happy she was a part of our wedding!"
