We are a fort Collins, CO Based Wedding
& Family Photography Team
I'm Antoinette, owner and lead photographer here at Antoinette Smith Photo.
I moved to Fort Collins to go to college (go rams!). Lucas (my husband and forever teammate) and I met on the first day of college and after dating for three years Lucas proposed in an outright blizzard (thats what I get for wanting it to snow when he proposed) in Rocky Mountain National Park. Our wedding was one of the sweetest days of our lives so far. We got married at Eagle Lake Camps where we had been camp counselors together. We were married on the lake and then climbed up to a cliff face that overlooked camp and Pikes Peak to take our couple pictures. We are all about taking a little hike in your wedding dress. I fell in love with wedding photography after our wedding. Our wedding pictures are in every part of our house and they bring me such joy as we remember all of the sweet moments among all our friends & family. I started Antoinette Smith Photo in 2019 and have photographed over 75 weddings. I love Jesus & seek to honor and serve him in how we love and serve our clients. I love spending time outside exploring with Lucas, our daughter and our dog Mac (the cutest Australian Shepard- Husky mix ever). You can find us outside throughout the year mountain biking, hiking and skiing. I also work part time as a high school science teacher and have a absolute heart for teenagers.
my favorite memories
Over the years, I have realized that it takes a team to provide an amazing & flawless client experience! Meet my Associate Photographers to our Team!
Ashley is married to her college sweetheart and they are raising their two boys on their little acre homestead. When she is not capturing love stories, she is exploring Colorado with her family or reading a fantasy novel. Ashley enjoys all of the moments that happen during a wedding day - from the beautiful details to the intimate moments shared during a first look to the laughter and tears experienced during the toasts. She loves being a part of creating memories for couples + getting to celebrate them as they start this chapter of their love story.
We joke that Lucas is the chief investor, chairman of the board, chief financial advisor and second photographer for Antoinette Smith Photo. Without him, this business would have lasted about 2 months before I decided it wasn't going to work. Today, Lucas serves as a second photographer and has an eye for composition, quiet moments and is a professional light stand operator. He brings an amazing sense of humor, a heart for understanding others stories and an eye for all of the grooms/groomsmen moments during a wedding day.
As photographers we desire to capture & document beauty. We seek to capture authentic & pure love. The kind of love that mirrors the love the Father modeled for us by sending his son to die on a cross. We document weddings & wedding celebrations in all their intricate beauty while awaiting for Christ's return and for the beautiful wedding banquet that will be waiting for us. Your wedding day is the start of a beautiful adventure that will impact and bless so many people.
It is our desire that your photos would capture the love that is so evident in those first days of marriage, that you can always look back on them in the hard time and in the uncertain times and remember how it all started. As photographers, we aim to love our clients deeply through providing pure, simple & beautiful portraits in a timely manner. We will work faithfully & wholeheartedly to listen & capture your vision for your session.
