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.

Cheyenne Mountain Resort Wedding

Cheyenne Mountain Resort Wedding

When it comes to dancing, having a good dance partner is just as important as knowing the right steps. You need to communicate well, be in sync, and take care not to trod on each other. When it comes to navigating this crazy world, it’s just as important to have a good life partner – for the same reasons. So if Julie and Ben’s Cheyenne Mountain Resort wedding is any indicator, these two have got it made. Continue reading →

Vail Wedding

However, it’s just as spectacular in the summer, especially when you invite your favorite friends and family up to 8,000 ft. for a celebration. So when Andrea and Shawn asked us to photograph their Vail wedding, we jumped at the chance. Continue reading →

Wedgewood Wedding

Our next wedding came right on the heels of Saturday’s Mon Cheri wedding. Sydney & Ben tied the knot at Wedgewood on Boulder Creek on their seventh anniversary. Though they’ve already been through so much together, you can tell just by watching them that the best is yet to come. Starting with a honeymoon in Rome! Continue reading →

Mon Cheri Wedding

Mon Cheri Wedding

We met Erin and Wade because of a Powerpoint presentation. Erin assembled it to persuade Wade, an analytical type, to book us as their photographers (we hear there were animations involved). And boy are we glad it worked because we got to spend a beautiful Saturday with the couple at Mon Cheri Events in Lyons. Continue reading →

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.
