As we move into the new year, it’s time again to take a look back at some of our favorite photos from the past 12 months. 2015 was a great year for us with lots of travel: we ventured to the East Coast for a rustic wedding in Ogunquit, Maine, shot an elopement at Detroit’s majestic Fox Theatre, and returned to the awe-inspiring Maroon Bells in Aspen, a wedding which coincided with the first “Supermoon” eclipse since 1982. We also had the honor of photographing our first ever weddings at Copper Mountain Ski Resort, Spruce Mountain Ranch in Sedalia, and Black Canyon Inn in Estes Park. All in all, it was a spectacular year for us and we look forward to what 2016 has in store! Continue reading →

Both being science educators, Mike and Stacy found plenty of ways to express their passion for nature during their Leadville wedding this past weekend, with a rustic ceremony setting at the base of Mt. Massive, woodsy decor featuring photos of their various adventures, and a celestial tie for the groom. Not to mention, Mike’s ring was made of copper, while Stacy’s was constructed from a meteorite.

This weekend, we had the chance to hang out again with a wonderful couple in an absolutely jaw-dropping location. Seanee and Jeremy’s rustic Colorado barn wedding at Wiens Ranch in Sedalia was quintessentially American: the bride was a nurse, the groom was a fireman, and they were surrounded by friends and family on a beautiful horse ranch–with perfect weather to boot!
