This April I traveled back to my home state of Michigan to film some promotional films for small businesses. This is Jenna, a textile and ceramic artist based in Harbor Springs, MI. I love making promo videos for any type of business especially when they are run by strong women.
Larisa Graham Films creates fun lifestyle films as well. Let me spend the afternoon or day with you and your family to document the memories you make everyday. Here is a film for the Bull Family of their day at the park. I’ll document your family fun and make it into a short (or long) keepsake film you can watch over and over, share with family and post on social media.
This past fall I was fortunate to film with some of my favorite mountain vendors at one of the best Beaver Creek venues, Spruce Saddle Lodge. It was a super fun afternoon and one of those days where I had to pinch myself because I can’t believe I get to do this as a job. We laughed a lot, drank some whiskey and crafted a beautiful styled shoot. This is just a sneak peek and one of the most beautiful sunsets I’ve ever filmed.

Krissy and Brandon are two of the sweetest people and have the coolest story of how they met. They sat next to each other at a Dierks Bentley concert at Red Rocks and have been together ever since. But, that isn’t the best part. After they started dating they realized their lives have literally crossed paths since they were in high school! They were both on the same senior class trip (with different schools) in Mexico at the same time in the same hotel. From that trip the coincidences continued through college and into adulthood, all over the country. Until they both moved back to Colorado and went to that Red Rocks concert. Such a great story! I’m so glad to have documented this wedding that was such a long time coming and so meant to be.
My last post was about how weddings don’t always go as planned. Well, sometimes they do! This sweet couple had the perfect late summer Colorado day at my favorite mountain wedding venue - Westin Riverfront Resort in Avon, CO. This is also where I go to the gym and swim almost everyday so I may be a little bias ;) Sarah and Connor are so in love and it showed on their faces all day long.
Weddings don’t always go as planned, especially during monsoon season in Colorado. Lucky for me I have the coolest most laid back couples who roll with the punches and don’t let a little (or a lot) of rain stop them from having the best day of their lives. Sonya and Pete were married at Sonya’s Grandparents ranch in Steamboat Springs. Minutes before their ceremony was set to begin our crazy unpredictable Colorado weather decided to do it’s thing. Sonya and Pete didn’t let that stop them from reciting their sweet vows, getting married huddled under a tent with all of their guests.
Did you know that when you book me to film your wedding you get a one minute preview film within two weeks of your wedding day?! Editing wedding films takes time and I want you to have something pretty to watch while you wait. Here is Maria & Bryan's Beaver Creek, CO preview video. And I edit each preview to be one minute long so you can post it to Instagram - if that's your jam.
Molly and Ernest exchanged vows on top of Beaver Creek Mountain at Trappers Cabin with their families. It was one of the sweetest little weddings I've ever seen. I love shooting intimate weddings and elopements. And even more when I get to work with my favorite Vail Valley photographers Nate & Jenny Weddings. Molly and Ernest are the sweetest couple and capturing their lovely wedding day was such an honor.
It's couples like Betsy and Ben that make my job easy. No need to say "give her a kiss!" because he was giving her kisses all day long. They are so in love and so happy to share this day with all their family and friends. Vail is Betsy and Ben's home away from home and one of their favorite places on earth. I was honored to create a film that showcases the beauty of Vail and their gorgeous wedding.
Megan and Ryan have been through a lot together and it is so clear that they always have and always will be there for one another. One of the best parts of my job is filming couples who are so obviously meant for each other. Megan and Ryan are one of those couples. They were married on February 25 at Saddleridge in Beaver Creek. Saddleridge is an all around great wedding venue but I think even better for winter weddings. You can have a fun Colorado-style ceremony, indoors, while capturing the surrounding beauty of Beaver Creek. This was my first wedding of 2018 and I feel very fortunate to kick this year off with such an amazing couple. Congrats to Megan and Ryan and all the adventures you'll share together.
