Willow Ridge Manor Wedding

Willow Ridge Manor Wedding

It’s fairly common for Jesse and I to scout a wedding venue and find entirely too many locations for photos. It’s far less common to find couples who are just as excited as we are to take a ton of photos in these cool locations. Luckily, those couples tend to find their way to us, like Sylvia and Brandon did for their Willow Ridge Manor wedding. Continue reading →

Crooked Willow Farms Wedding

Crooked Willow Farms Wedding

With the unpredictable fall weather settling in and snow the day before, we weren’t sure what to expect at Alyssa and Kevin’s Crooked Willow Farms wedding. When we arrived, it looked like some blue sky was trying to peek out, but by the time all the activities started, we were encased in a strange freezing fog. We almost didn’t even need the smoke grenades we had brought with us. Almost. Continue reading →

Copper Mountain Wedding

Copper Mountain Wedding

I can’t help it. I obsessively check the weather before a wedding. Probably more than the couple does. Sometimes, it’s because I’m hoping for a few degrees of relief (I’m lookin’ at you, Denver in July). Sometimes, like for Melisa and Sam’s Copper Mountain wedding, it’s just to see if it’s going to rain, snow, or be sunny – because all of them had a chance of happening. Continue reading →

Rocky Mountain National Park Elopement

Rocky Mountain National Park Elopement

Jesse and I met Andrea and Chad in-person for the first time on the day of their wedding. They had traveled from Bellingham, Washington, to our equally beautiful state of Colorado for their Rocky Mountain National Park elopement. Continue reading →

Fall Wedding in Vail

Fall Wedding in Vail

Last weekend, rains swept through the mountains, clearing out the smoke from the many forest fires burning in the West. Luckily, that didn’t matter for Genevieve and Jon’s fall wedding in Vail. The Sonnenalp simply closed Ludwig’s glass roof and the ceremony continued on, sheltered from the rain but maintaining the beautiful forest-like atmosphere. Continue reading →

Cherry Creek Wedding

Cherry Creek Wedding

After spending much of the previous week in the mountains, we were looking forward to mixing it up a bit with Patricia and Kevin’s Cherry Creek wedding at the JW Marriott. Don’t get me wrong, I love the mountains. But Denver is a city with unending nooks and crannies perfect for wedding photography and we love to take advantage of that. Continue reading →

Beaver Creek Wedding

Beaver Creek Wedding

There’s something very respectable about a couple who plans their wedding not really having an idea of how everything’s going to look in the end. You put your best effort in, decide what’s most important to you, and then let the cards fall where they may, determined to enjoy yourself no matter what. That’s how Mo and Trey approached their Beaver Creek wedding. And it sure paid off! Continue reading →

Purgatory Resort Wedding

Purgatory Resort Wedding

When we got Jamie and Eric’s Purgatory Resort wedding invitation in the mail, it had the Milky Way as the background and promised “Dinner, Dancing, and Meteor Shower to Follow” the ceremony. They couldn’t have picked a better spot (Dante’s Peak) or day (one of the peak nights of the Perseid meteor shower) to make good on that promise. Continue reading →

Greenbriar Inn Wedding

Greenbriar Inn Wedding

Jesse and I returned to our old stomping grounds last weekend for Sarah and Patrick’s Greenbriar Inn wedding. And while it’s been some time since we’ve been to Boulder for a wedding, we put together a greatest hits tour for their portraits. Continue reading →
