Kelly Miranda Photography | Durango Photographer bio picture
  • About this Durango Photographer:

          My name is Kelly Miranda MacNiven and I am a family, children, baby and wedding photographer in Durango, Colorado. I grew up in the cold, peaceful mountains of Durango where I acquired an appreciation for art and all the livings things roaming. In my childhood, I developed my love for theatre, music and photography. I love this city and all its beautiful people and there are endless things to do here. I am passionate about photography and family so it makes sense that those two things would combine to allow me to follow my career path. Since becoming a mother, I've gained a whole new understanding of what family means, how to capture the most special moments between parents and their children and how to work with little ones in a way that makes them shine in front of the camera.

          My husband and I recently welcomed our first child, Carter Thomas MacNiven, into the world December 2nd, 2012. We are having a blast being new parents and enjoying watching him grow. I have rediscovered my love for child portraiture and am finding new creativity through photographing my son. We have also recently moved back home to Durango after living in Austin, Texas for the last five years. Being close to our family has been such a joy and having the support is priceless. We are so happy to be back where we belong and for me to be doing what I love most, where I love most: photography in Durango!

Colorado Destination Wedding Photographers | Jennifer and Scott

Jennifer and Scott had a beautiful outdoor wedding ceremony at The Glacier Club in Durango, CO. The leaves were changing to bright yellow and red on the mountain that served as the backdrop for their ceremony and the reception took place in the great big lodge. This couple chose deep purple and accenting beige and lavender tones for their colors which really popped against all of that green grass on the golf course. Jennifer hand made a ring dish with her and Scott’s initials in it and used a piece of twine to tie the rings onto the dish.  This bride also decided to do a  first look with her dad instead of her soon to be husband. It was a very emotional moment when he saw his daughter in her wedding gown for the first time. Their ceremony was held on the green as the sun was setting over the mountains. We couldn’t have asked for better weather, lighting or a more fun couple than Jennifer and Scott. Congratulations to them both!

Jennifer and Scott planned their destination wedding while living in Littleton, CO and here’s what they have to say about their planning experience:

“I always knew I wanted to get married back home in Durango, but I didn’t realize how stressful it would be. My husband worked grave hour shifts so it was a lot of planning on my side, as well as collaborating with my parents who, luckily, still lived in Durango. The biggest thing that I think helped us is we had about a year and a half to plan. In that time, we made sure to get the big things booked first. They went quickly, so we made sure to make the venue and the photographer our top priority, then we went down the list from there.

I was a Pinterest fanatic, so the majority of my decorations were handmade, mainly by my father. He built the centerpiece boxes, and then burnt our initials into the wood with hot metal he designed. He also created the alter pieces and dug out a bowl shape in the top for the flowers to sit.

Our guestbook was something that I wanted to make sure was unique, so I went on Etsy and started searching, until I found the board we could have personalized.

We did have a lot of kids at our wedding, so I knew they would be antsy for food and cake, so I was able to find a coloring book template that they could work on so the parents didn’t have to worry about entertainment. In the end, the kids gave them to us, having specializing them for our big day.

Overall, it was the best day and everything went smoothly. Just make sure you give yourself enough time with planning and booking, if you are wanting any kind of destination wedding.”

Durango Family Photography | Berghuis Family Portraits

Durango Family Photography

The Berghuis Family’s Fall Portraits in Durango, CO

I had the pleasure of photographing this adorable family of three for their first portrait session as a family. Baby Blaine’s mommy wanted to capture some family portraits in Durango as well as some images of Blaine to mark his 6 months of being the joy and light in their lives. I love the gorgeous fall colors we captured as well as the many faces of Mr. Blaine. His mommy invested in an expression panel with (4) 8×10″ metal prints, each a close of up of his cute baby face with a different expression. I love expression panels because sometimes one photo just isn’t enough to display all of the many faces your little baby makes.

If you are interested  in reserving your portrait session with Durango’s premier family photographer, give us a call at 970-946-7279 or email info@kellymirandaphotography.com.

Molas Pass Silverton, CO Wedding Elopement

Molas Pass Silverton, CO Wedding Elopement

by Kelly Miranda Photography

Dawn and Randy eloped with six of their family members and two of their best friends to a mountaintop in Silverton, Colorado. The couple rented 4×4 vehicles to trek them over the two track, bumpy, dirt road to a small hundred year old miner’s cabin at Molas Pass. The views were incredible as we looked across the ceremony site to see the Rocky Mountain range jutting up into the cloud filled sky. It was there, under the peaks that Randy and Dawn made their vows to each other. Following the ceremony, we photographed the couple’s portraits in the Colorado landscape and near the abandoned cabin. This wedding was hands down one of my favorite weddings of the year. I loved the intimacy of the small ceremony juxtaposed with the vastness of the mountain ranges that truly humbled us as we sat under the enormous cliffs. Congrats to Dawn and Randy!

 

If you are interested in having Kelly Miranda Photography capture your Durango, Silverton, Telluride, U.S. or international wedding please call 970-946-7279 or email info@kellymirandaphotography.com. We travel to many destinations for free!
