Woodlands in Morrison, Colorado

Woodlands is a gorgeous rustic wedding venue in Morrison, CO. It’s ran by a husband and wife duo and is only about a half hour drive from Denver. Woodlands is a barn-styled wedding venue that is located on 52 acres! The modern-industrial style barn is surrounded by the stunning Colorado mountains. One of my favorite parts about the venue is that the white interior of the barn makes for amazing photos because it is so light and bright!! The venue property also includes bridal and groom suites. Both dressing rooms are fully furnished with couches, chairs, mirrors, TV, & WiFi; and are the perfect place to relax, prepare, and reflect prior to your event.

Love From My Clients | Wedding Venues In Denver

“Picking a photographer for your wedding is probably one of the hardest decisions to make during the planning process. You want someone you can trust, whose aesthetic matches yours, and a photographer with the ability to make you and your partner feel comfortable in front of the camera, especially for an entire day. Dani encapsulated all those qualities!”

“After meeting her over the phone and then soon after at our engagement session, I immediately knew that she was our match-made in photography heaven. She quickly put us at ease, making an experience that I anticipated to be awkward, really fun.”

“During our wedding day, she found the perfect location for our first look, captured all the best moments in an organic manner, and her style is timeless – one where you can look back decades from now and still feel all the feels”

Wedding Venues In Denver From Dani Haims An Inclusive Colorado Intimate Wedding Photographer

When capturing weddings, I try to capture a mix of little details and candid moments of my clients having fun with their guests and family! I do this so you can have a really beautiful well rounded wedding gallery that feels genuine and true to who you and your partner are! And, I try to keep the “formal” photos as quick, engaging and seamless as possible!! To top it off, I love an epic dance party!! All in all, my main goal is to let people be themselves and enjoy their day. I don’t want it to feel like an all day photoshoot, so I often have a more documentary/photo journalistic approach when possible so that I capture genuine moments
