About Mile Hi Photos

I’m Rick Louie the guy behind the camera at Rick Louie Studios. I am a on-location photographer based here in Denver.

These are my kids, Nick, Sarah and Emily and the reason I get up in the morning. It’s a hectic life with kids in high school and college. They grow up too fast and capturing those special moments in their lives allows me to stop time.  Pictures of my family, kids, their friends, birthdays, hikes we have taken, trips, allow those moments to be captured in time so I can go back and smile, remember those happy moments!

I’ve had a camera in my hand since high school, always wanting to capture the moment. Maybe it was the gadget, but I loved taking pictures. My first love is capturing beautiful landscapes and wildlife. Forget the suit and tie. Give me a pair of shorts, t-shirt and some hiking boots and let’s go find a trail to explore. I love being out in nature when the sun is rising and the the sun is setting.  Beauty is everywhere and it’s waiting to be captured.

It’s all about making beautiful pictures. I like finding that special location for us to create a beautiful portrait. Those are what make memories! If you have been on a portrait shoot with me you know I’m in shorts and a t-shirt.  That’s how I’m most comfortable. Let’s find that creek or special tree and make some magic with the camera. We don’t need to travel far. That’s what I love about being a photographer here in Colorado. There are so many locations right here in the Denver Front Range. Red Rocks, Roxborough Park, Barr Lake, DeKoevend Park or in the cornfield of a local farm. It’s all about capturing you and your family in that special light.

I hope I get to work with you.  Let’s make some memories together.  Let’s make some magic!

“We hired Rick to take our daughter’s senior portraits. We were brand new to the area and had no idea where to go, but we did know we wanted them taken outside. I described my daughter’s personality to Rick and he chose the perfect spot and took gorgeous photos. He even let us jump in for a family photo and took some of her and her sister. We were so impressed with his professionalism and the quality of photos he took. I would recommend him to anyone without hesitation.” – Heathyr K
