Lower Lake Ranch Wedding

Lower Lake Ranch Wedding

Wedding planning is not an easy task. Regardless of how simple you want your wedding to be, there are a myriad of choices you’ll still have to make. Planning long distance is even harder. I’ve never seen a couple step up to the task like Kelsey & Jon did for their Lower Lake Ranch wedding this weekend.  Continue reading →

Devil’s Thumb Ranch Wedding

Devil’s Thumb Ranch Wedding

I’m kind of a word nerd, and as such, I’ve been annoyed recently at how often the word “epic” is thrown around. Replying All on an email is not an “epic fail.” Doing shots at a bar does not make it an “epic” night. Epic should not be a random hashtag thrown into a tweet. But Jessica and Robb’s Devil’s Thumb Ranch wedding? That meets my standards for epic.

Shadow Mountain Ranch Wedding

Shadow Mountain Ranch Wedding

Here’s some life advice: marry someone who will have inflatable raptor fights with you. Leigh & Tyler are lucky to have found their raptor fight partners in each other. Their dinosaur-themed Shadow Mountain Ranch wedding was the perfect laid-back party to celebrate their marriage. Continue reading →

River Bend Wedding

River Bend Wedding

Perhaps the most amazing thing about weddings in Colorado is the fantastic natural beauty of the surroundings. Katy and Adam’s River Bend wedding was no different. Not only was the location impressive, combining red sandstone, a cool river, and bright green trees, they made sure to incorporate Colorado’s wild nature into their wedding details.

Golden Moon Speak / Eldorado Springs Engagement

Golden Moon Speak / Eldorado Springs Engagement

Though Jesse and I are obsessive about beer, we also enjoy a taste of whiskey every now and then. So when Jessica mentioned that she and Robb wanted to incorporate whiskey into their engagement shoot, it spurred an impromptu competition to find a distillery where we could do our photo shoot (and sample the wares). After some thorough research and a much longer “Distilleries To Visit” list later, we landed on Golden Moon Speak. Continue reading →

Chatfield Gardens Wedding

Chatfield Gardens Wedding

It’s been a season of firsts for us – from a nighttime portrait with the Denver skyline in the background to a pre-wedding snowboarding shoot at Beaver Creek. And while we’ve had plenty of adorable dogs and children as ring bearers, last weekend was the first time we had a mini-pig trot the rings down the aisle. Continue reading →

Planet Bluegrass Wedding

Planet Bluegrass Wedding

I knew this was going to be a fun wedding early on when the groom said, “Mom, would you please sheath the swords so the dogs don’t step on them?” Really, I knew this was going to be a great time the night before at the rehearsal dinner, hosted by the groom’s parents at the Dushanbe Tea House; one of the guest’s name badges said as much.

Shupe Homestead Wedding

Shupe Homestead Wedding

As we were closing out our final nighttime shoot of our last wedding of the season, Samantha (the bride), remarked on how much fun she was having and how she wished she could spend all her time taking photos. Looking around at the tranquil Shupe Homestead wedding and reflecting on the past season, it occurred to me:  yeah, we’ve got a pretty sweet gig here. Continue reading →
