Hi! I'm Karen!! A little bit about ÉPS and me... 
I founded this business in Colorado in 2008 and as of 2015 I replanted in Colorado Springs. My photography career carried me to NYC for two years to be apart of the wedding industry in ways I couldn't have imagined. NY was so good but I missed that small town feel of C/S + my man. So here I am.

When I'm not taking photos, I'm likely welcoming people to our home to share food, stories and life. I thrive when I’m surrounded by the ones I love- while hosting friends new and old, and in the midst of exploring and adventuring all of that I can around me. I travel all over the map to photograph to keep myself on my toes but also to photograph our clientele. I want to meet you wherever you are both for the celebration and for the documentation. Please dig through the site and if you love what you see, I’d love to hear from you. I cannot wait to get to know you + document your story.

Hey, I'm Stephanie! I'm a wife, mom, photographer & blogger. I have two girls and have been with my husband for 7 years, so I know how fast the days go by and how amazing it is to have seasons in life photographed.

I love documenting the real-life moments. I tend to over-romanticize everything + dream bigger and bigger every day. I love honesty and vulnerability. I believe the most empowering thing in this world is love and I strive to capture that love beautifully, softly and passionately. I love shooting weddings because I believe that we weren't created to be alone. When two people find each other in this crazy world and choose to continuously love each other through the beautiful and messy moments, I want to be there to photograph it. I want you to remember how you felt walking toward one another, how amazing it felt when you shared that first kiss, and how you celebrated with the closest of friends and family. I've jumped on board after five years solo so that I can focus primarily on the creative side of photography.

I hope to photograph a piece of your story next!

My name is Laura Klassen and I am a Canadian living in Colorado Springs. Making the move this way 2 years ago to marry the love of my life was the best decision to date! I ma obsessed with my two pups, Hank and Luna + Lattes, slow mornings, gardening, plants, travel and course, photography.

Photography has been a love of mine for many years. White growing up, I couldn’t put the camera down. I started tinkering with my dads old film and it hooked me, forever. Now, I shoot digital but I strive to offer the classical feel of film. I love the raw beauty of captureing a process- a moment between moments. The collision between love, people and nature is what makes me pursue photography. - lk

Hi, I'm Megan! I am the organizer of scheduling as well as the editing assistant at ÉPS. As a born and raised Coloradan, you can almost always find me somewhere in a forest taking photos, running up mountains, or playing in the snow. Growing up I spent most of my days in my mom's veterinarian clinic, which made me a die hard animal lover. Thus my dream job is to one day photograph wild animals for a living. I am crazy passionate about helping others and living generously- which is why I love my job. I am here to help you every step of the way and can't wait to meet you! - Megan
