I hope you’re here because you want to stamp your unique personalities on your wedding. You want your photography to be creative, authentic, and to embody ALL the emotions and special details of your big day…to capture everything. You want to have a relaxed and enjoyable experience, not stuffy and formal.
You’ve probably looked at a lot of photography websites, but these images stand out to you, and you feel like you know the people in them. You’re not just looking for the cheapest photographer in your neck of the woods. You see the beauty and value in documenting the beginning of a new heritage in a fashion that is worthy of your walls for decades to come and longer. You reckon, if we met, we’d be friends.
Perfect! I’m glad we found each other! Lets meet over a glass of lemonade, or a cup of joe. I want to learn about your unique relationship and vision for your big day. Currently I shoot weddings across the continent, so if we can’t manage face-to-face, lets enjoy getting to know each other over Skype.

I am so grateful to be in my thirties, love the smell of a campfire, grew up in Hawaii, can’t wait for football Sundays (thanks Dad), should have an IV for my coffee, enjoy a good car karaoke/dance party, and I can’t live without my down comforter. Lastly, I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Photography in 2009. Since that time I’ve been blessed to have photographed close to 100 weddings and have traveled around the world shooting for large and small corporations, magazines, families, and couples.

“We have had a rough week…my Mother Phyllis passed away this past week and we have been trying to deal with the loss. What I wanted to email you about is that I have some wonderful pictures of my Mother and I over the years but the ones that I am SO very thankful for are the beautiful pictures that you captured of us on our wedding day. I just wanted you to know what a special gift you have and that you are very lucky to have a passion for something that can make such a large impact in peoples lives. I have always loved our wedding pictures and what you were able to capture but now more than ever they mean so much more!! Thank you for being there and being such a wonderful part of our special day.”
“AWWWWWW such a fun reminder!!! Your photos are still our most favorite part of our wedding day! Well, besides our actual marriage lol. Thank you again for such beautiful photos!”
“And the Made My Day Award goes to…(drum roll) JUNE! Thank you for being a beautiful person! We just LOVE our pictures! I am so thankful to know you, and to surround myself and family with such a genuine person. Your heart is huge, thank you for sharing it with my family! May greatness surround you, as you have done unto us.”
“We hired June for our weekend activities (May 5th and 6th). We had a very non-traditional wedding. We had a family cookout the day before our wedding. It was very laid back – we wanted to be able to spend time with our family and friends in a relaxed setting. We wanted to have FUN!!! And we did. June arrived and there was so many things left to do to ensure that the cookout went off without a hitch. June was my Angel! She asked if she could help. I was hesitant at first because she’s the photographer. She asked again, and I accepted. She helped with decorations and setting up the tables. She laughed and joked with my friends. She fit right in!!! Somehow, while helping with setup, she took fun, energetic, happy photos of everything. She took photos of people from different angles, she captured laughter, hugs, kisses. She captured two families melding together. The morning of our wedding she showed up to my hotel room and took pictures of everything: my family getting ready, my dress, my shoes. She took photos of my “show stopping” transformation. I felt like a super model. It was so much more than I expected. She took pictures of me as a bare canvas and captured the beauty of a bride. Our ride from the hotel to Central Park (where we got married) was full of jokes and laughter. June caught it all. She’s amazing at being invisible and capturing beautiful secret moments. Ok, now the grand stuff. Lol! She caught everything at the park. She’s magnificent!!! She took pictures of my arrival, my sisters walking me down the aisle. She took pictures of my handsome husband and his awesome brother (who performed our ceremony) waiting for me at the alter. She has pictures of my guests and the violinist. I was wondering if everyone was ok. If they were happy, bored, tired, etc. June answered my questions with her pictures. Everyone was happy. She captures life and all of its variables I could go on but 3500 words just is not enough. June is more than a photographer. She’s a kind hearted, beautiful, intelligent woman that has a gift for capturing love with a lens. My family loves her and you may hire her to be your photographer but we are keeping her in our family as a new member.”
“Very rarely do I come across someone so talented and with their heart aligned in the right place. YOU are one of the few, June bug. You deliver the perfect, seamless experience for our patients that we strive for. Thank you for all you do. Our patients are blessed to have you.”
-Dr. Anil Idiculla
“JUNE!!! You are amazing. You made our night with those pics. Thank you so much for everything you have done for us. We are truly grateful. I can’t believe how blessed we have been with certain amazing people (ie you) that have came into our lives. Have a wonderful day and thanks a milli again.”
“We knew the first time we met with June that we wanted to use her for our October wedding. She has a true passion for what she does and it is SO OBVIOUS in her work. Not only is June professional, creative and extremly talented, she is also young, spunky and full of life! She is truly an artist and has a vision that makes the most beautiful photos I have ever seen. The mini slide show she put together of photos from the wedding day, which she played at the reception was a huge hit, and sparked many of your friends wanting to get her info! Finding a photographer to capture every intimate moment of this special time in your life can be very intimidating. I promise, you will never have a moment of regret with June Cochran Photography.”
-Rick & Tara Peters
June!!! Wow is all I can say, these are amazing and better then I could have ever imagined. You made Kyle and I look GOOD! haha! I can’t wait to show our family! Kyle and I decided that we definitely want the guestbook of our pictures for people to sign. How many pictures do we need to choose for that? Thanks again for such a wonderful engagement shoot, I am smiling from ear to ear just looking at these! You are AMAZING!!
“June Cochran made the most precious day of our lives easy and fun. She didn’t make us feel pressured to be distracted from the events or even to deviate our attention from each other at all. She understood the balance of letting the day happen naturally and interjecting helpful tips when we needed it. It felt like she was a part of the day, instead of peripheral to it. She took the joy personally. She respected the love and interactions with incredible grace. It seemed like, to her, each picture was sacred. Each moment captured was actually moving her at a heart level. She was able to glimpse through her lens the truth of each moment and the honesty in each emotion exchanged. When we look through the pictures we are transported into those moments together and our hearts bubble up with the joy we felt and the love we were so excited to declare to the world on our wedding day. June was so easy to work with. She understood when to disappear into the background and let special moments happen, and she knew when to gather us and capture the laughter and fun we were all enjoying together. Our day wouldn’t have been the same without her. And our memories are now treasured perfectly through the images she captured. I would recommend her to anyone!”
JUNE!!! Well, they say good things come to those who wait and wow did good things come our way! We absolutely love our pictures, for two people who are not the most photogenic and were unsure of even doing engagement pictures, you captured us in a beautiful and authentic light. It made our weekend to see our photos, our personalities completely showed through! Thank you so so so much, it was a pleasure getting to work with you and hope to be able to do so again! Great job! You’ve made us very happy :)
-Jen and Aaron
“June shot our wedding on May 30, 2012 and it was, by far, one of the best decisions we have ever made. There are so many reasons we loved sharing our day with her (way too many to list)! But here are the two I appreciate the most. Authenticity. I’m normally extremely nervous in front of the camera. I didn’t think my wedding day would be any different. Definitely not the case with June. She was so relaxed and professional behind the lens that not only did I enjoy taking the pictures but the entire bridal party had a fantastic time! It was a great way to relieve stress and spend time together before the ceremony. And the proof, they say, is in the puddin! My husband and I love looking through all the photos because June sincerely captured all the love that we felt surrending us that day. Our shots capture real smiles, genuine emotion, and lots and lots of love. Dedication. June worked so hard to capture all of our special moments. She took the time to travel to the site before the day of the wedding to scout shot locations and get familiar with our venue and it showed. She jumped into action as soon as she got there and didn’t stop until the moment she left. We have beautiful formal shots, special candid moments, and lots of beautiful detail photos that we cherish. Anyone who has been through a wedding knows the day goes by in a flash. Looking through our photos, June captured all our special details–my dress, the flowers, even wonderful shots of the Italian cookies that have been a tradition in my family for years–we can remember those moments that zipped by during the day. To wrap up, June is a talented, professional, and dear person. Her participation will absolutely add to the joy of your wedding day and the final product is phenominal!!”
“You are such an awesome person, June. Thank you soooo much for doing our maternity shoot :) We will never forget it. Can’t wait to see the pics!!!! It was a pleasure meeting you and wish you nothing but the best…”
“We just saw the pictures June!!! They are incredible, you are such an amazing photographer!!
“June- thank you SOOOO much!! The anticipation today was killing me but it was well worth the wait. The photos are beautiful :)))) We couldn’t be happier! ”
-Tara and Rick
“You are the best June!!! They look great! Thank you soooo much, you made Lizs’ year!! ”
“Thank you so much, the pictures are amazing and I can’t wait to share then with our friends and family! Also thank you so much for staying later and having Phil stay later to get parts of the reception, I must not have planned out the timing that well because I thought we would have enough time to get everything we needed in the alloted time I gave you. So thank you so much again we really really apprecaite it because we would have been upset to not get any of those special moments in pictures! ”
“Hey!! Just saw my pictures on your blog! They are amazing June I love them!! I almost started crying it made me miss my wedding day.. The first look shot is my favorite. It’s perfect. Thanks soo sooo much xx”
“The minute my fiance and I decided to elope in Hawaii, I immediately knew I HAD to fly June in to shoot it. I have hired June to shoot commercial work for me in the past, so I already knew that she would bring a unique eye and passion to the project. However, when I saw the results from my wedding, I was overwhelmed. The pictures are not just beautiful, they are true, memorable works of art. I have shared the pictures with friends and family, and I have had numerous people tell me that my wedding pictures are the most amazing ones they have ever seen. If you are looking for a photographer who will give you personal attention and who really cares about making your wedding memories special, you should choose June. She is the best in the business!”
“If a picture is worth a thousand words then a picture taken by June Cochran is worth a million! We can’t thank June enough for being apart of our special day. She is a true artist in every sense of the word and a consummate professional. June captured the mood beautifully and we were so blown away by her shots. The final result of our wedding photos is truly breathtaking, and exceeded our lofty expectations. If you take one piece of advice make it this; Book her, as simple as that!”
“June did photos for our business and as a couple. Both shoots felt relaxed like we weren’t even being photographed. She has an amazing ability to capture little moments that most wouldn’t even think of and she has an amazing eye to find that perfect image. I couldn’t believe how she turned what could have been just simple shots into an artistic collection worthy of any magazine! An impeccable talent! I highly recommend her for any type of photography needs you have!”
- Marilyn Roitman
“June sees the world the way you wish you could. The way she captures your wedding in pictures is how you want to be able to remember it in your own head. She is a very calming presence on a hectic day. I’m not sure how one person can seemingly be in so many places at once, but she didn’t miss a thing.”
“June is amazing! She did pictures of me and my two little boys after my late husband passed away. It was really emotional but June made the shoot personal white capturing the life and joy that was still left in my family, after Drew’s passing. I would recommend June highly to anyone! :)”
“June is such a sweetheart. She captured our special day perfectly. Every time we look at the pictures we can feel the emotion all over again. She has such an amazing eye and is very professional, but fun to boot! We keep getting compliments on our pictures. We would recommend June over and over again!”
-Lisa and Joe Cleveland
“June was so amazing to work with. She set us all at ease and made the photos fun. I am usually a wreck in front of the camera and our wedding photos are amazing. Her style, shot composition, and professionalism were and are spectacular. If you are a fun person and want photos she is the only way to go!”
-Jen Schultz Wilson
“I worked with June for our engagement and wedding pictures, she is so nice and fun to be around that she makes everyone comfortable. She captures some amazing moments and her photos are excellent, we received so many compliments on how good the pictures were.”
“I saw some friends photos that June took and knew I had to book her for our engagement photos. The shoot was so natural and fun of course! We absolutely loved how our photos turned out and have received nothing but compliments on them! I would highly recommend her to anyone for any occasion!”
“June has a creative eye that transforms what would be a typical shoot into an unforgettable and beautiful collection of art. June photographed my wedding, as well as an anniversary shoot for my husband and I. I would recommend her to anyone!!!”
“June not only does lovely work, but she makes the photography shoot such a fun and comfortable experience. I am forever getting compliments on my wedding photos and anniversary pictures taken by her!”
“June is a great photographer, one in which makes you feel comfortable and will comply to your wants and desires.”
-David Bruton, Broncos #30
“When looking for a photographer, I knew I wanted someone fun and artistic that would capture the things that are sometimes overlooked. I got this and so much more by working with June. She captured everything that I wanted and somethings that I didn’t know I wanted but now know I need! We did a pre-wedding photo session in downtown Denver, and I was amazed at the pictures that she captured! She suggested places that I had never been and got amazing shots of Alex and I. June and Josh (aka Ninja) were amazing at capturing candid pictures and details on the day of the wedding. They captured EVERYTHING!! There were things that I missed, and I am so glad that they captured them. Not only was June an amazing, wonderful, excellent, best ever, …insert every great comment here… photographer, but a great friend. From coffee shop meetings to midnight cookie and pie baking emails I feel like June was always available to answer questions and help where needed. She is absolutely our photographer from now on!”
“June is great-the pics she took of Marie are amazing. She takes her time and the pictures have a natural feel, not forced-simply great. I recommend her to anyone that needs to hire a photographer.
-Tracy Grace Trestrail
“June did an amazing job on our wedding photos. Her fun and easy going personality made the entire experience wonderful.”
“June Cochran has a beautiful touch to her pictures I’ve never seen before. Use her while her prices are still reasonable-cause when she makes it big, you’ll have a picture of your family taken by the great June Cochran! :)”
