About Matlai Photography

Rose Groves


I love to be outside, and combined with my passion for emotive imagery and getting to know your story, I adore what I get to do for my work. I focus on capturing the intimate, authentic moments of your story and weave them into a series that is casually joyfully you. With a background in travel and documentary photography, previously working in international non profit storytelling, my style speaks to those looking for the organic story with the greatest value being in experiences over things.

With a background in documentary photography and a rich history of travel and adventures, I live for the experiences and creating memories. What sets me apart is that I have spent half my life overseas, know Colorado like the back of my hand, and want to surround myself with likeminded people pursuing the same dreams. I was born in Kenya, love my hot cup of coffee first thing in the morning, and get really excited to tell stories of love.

    Rose is not only such a great photographer, but also person! My (now) husband and I could not have imagined an easier day as Rose got along great with us and our families. Our photographs turned out beautifully and we cannot stop looking at them. Rose also was incredibly helpful when it came to planning for our day as well. Highly recommend!

  • Beautiful photos from a beautiful photographer

    Rose is an amazing photographer with a beautiful style. Her story telling is wonderful and allows you to share the whole day with all those not at your elopement and they don't miss a single thing. Highly recommend speaking with her at the very least to see if she's your person. You won't be disappointed.
