about our photo + video team

We love venues with mountain + water views, weddings with dogs, and getting the chance to show couples just how beautiful their love story really is.

Our team specializes in scenic + intentional weddings across Colorado, from the foothills of Boulder and Colorado Springs to the Rocky Mountains of Summit County and beyond.

Collectively, we’ve captured over 200 weddings and elopements, and have traveled thousands of miles to explore this beautiful planet of ours.

Our favorite part? We love that our jobs give us the chance to bring our passion for storytelling and the environment together in such a meaningful way for others.

what skyewater means to us

We believe that love, like water, is necessary for life.

It’s a strong and powerful force, but also a comforting and peaceful one. It heals and nourishes us. It can make us feel alive, yet calm, all at once. Water has the ability to move us, both physically and emotionally, in ways we may not be able to put into words . . . just as love does.

Water has also moved and shaped the landscape of our planet in a variety of ways. Bodies of water support the areas with the greatest biodiversity on our planet. Water is so powerful, even places that are now dry — deserts, mountains, canyons — still show impacts from water that used to be there millions of years ago (in the form of rain, snow, rivers, lakes, floods, and glaciers).

Skye is a beautiful Scottish word that can simply mean cloud or sky, but often means adventurous or free-spirited. By combining these two ideas, our photo and video brand evokes the unique and authentic wedding day experiences we offer to couples who want waterscapes and the natural world to play an important role in the celebration of their marriage.

our team

kaitlyn

Although originally born in Florida, Kaitlyn’s always been more of a mountain (and waterfall!) girl at heart. She currently lives with her husband and pup Bruiser in a tiny mountain town outside of Colorado Springs, but dreams of living on the road full-time someday or finding a piece of land with a waterfall or creek on the property. 

The outdoors is one of her big passions – both on and off camera. Not only does Kaitlyn help couples with their adventure wedding plans, but she also captures landscape and wildlife photos, and earned a Masters degree in nature writing from University of Nevada, Reno. Someday, she’ll get around to finishing her memoirs and nature essay book ideas! 

Kaitlyn works on both the photo and video side, capturing a blend of authentic emotions, wide-open scenery, and all the little details you’ll want to remember about your wedding day for decades to come. 

rebecca

Rebecca guides couples into flattering poses and gorgeous light – even when they think they’re “awkward” on camera. Renowned for her positive energy, gentle (but effective) motivational prowess, and magical ability to make it look like everyone was smiling all day. She loves parentheticals, genuine emotion, and getting the perfect shot. 

Rebecca went to school for photography back in 2005, and has worked myriad photo-related jobs since, all across the country: Tennessee, Kansas, Alaska, Florida, and now Colorado. She focuses on weddings and portraits for outdoorsy, fun, kind couples. She is a white water raft guide, a rock climber, a dog-mom, and has converted her CR-V to have a bed in the back for all of the road-tripping inherent with being an adventure photographer.

Rebecca will be a great fit for couples looking for a fun, talented photographer who captures intimate moments with ninja-like respect, but offers guidance during more posed formals.
