When Jesse and I were scouting for Renee and Caleb’s Edgewood Inn wedding last Friday in Woodland Park, we ran into the typical Colorado mountain weather. First it was sunny and hot, then the clouds blew in. Then we had some nice sprinkles, which turned into a downpour and, suddenly, a torrent of hail. And almost as soon as it had started, the weather passed through and left us nice a cool with a beautiful sunset. Continue reading →

On our drive up to Kelly and Nick’s Boettcher Mansion wedding on the top of Lookout Mountain, we were a little concerned that we wouldn’t have the views of the mountains we were hoping for. The day was chilly, considering the 90-degree temps we’ve been having all summer, and the mountain was blanketed by clouds. We could barely see around the curves in the road. Continue reading →
Jesse and I woke up bright and early to finish our sojourn into the mountains for our second wedding of the weekend. The drive was gorgeous and we both reflected on how lucky we are to live in such a beautiful state. Vail was bustling with the GoPro Games, which made some of our photo plans a little difficult. But we improvised for Chelsea and Jared’s Vail Mountain wedding – and did so quite successfully, if you ask me. Continue reading →
A busy April gave way to a quiet and rainy May. But now, Jesse and I have jumped right back into wedding season with Nicole and Jeff’s Mount Vernon Country Club wedding being the first of two weddings last weekend. Tucked up in the foothills, but with a spectacular view of the city, their ceremony was short and sweet, followed by one rockin’ party! Continue reading →

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 →
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.

What struck me most about Christie and Eric’s Beaver Creek wedding was something that the bride put into words herself: “We’ve got such amazing friends!” Not only were their friends an integral part of the wedding day – from ceremony readings to standing up in the wedding party to toasting the couple at the reception – they went above and beyond.

Being avid skiers, Jesse and I absolutely love Vail in the winter; it might possibly be our favorite mountain (shhh, don’t tell Beaver Creek). 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 →
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 →
