Why Is Wedding Photography So Expensive? (Part One)

Why Is Wedding Photography So Expensive? (Part One)

“Four grand just for pictures?! My sister has a camera and she’ll do it for free!” I’ve heard some variation of this more than a few times throughout my wedding photography career. And I get it.

Best of 2015

Best of 2015

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 →

Copper Mountain Wedding

Copper Mountain Wedding

Copper Mountain holds a special place in Shantel and Matt’s hearts. Shantel grew up skiing at Copper and it’s where she taught Matt how to ski. She gave him some strong motivation, too. When they started dating, she told him that if he wanted to see her at all during the winter, he’d have to learn how to ski. Continue reading →
