Best of 2021

|
It’s that time of year again when we take a moment to look back and reflect upon the previous 12 months’ worth of weddings and engagement shoots. This past year was our busiest wedding season to date, which made it extra difficult to whittle it down to our best wedding photos of 2021. We started…

Dream Lake Engagement

|
I’m not sure if Kenzie and Bo’s Dream Lake engagement session could have been any more authentically Colorado, swinging wildly between seasons like it wasn’t quite sure which month we were in. The adventure had the perfect mix of Type I and Type II fun that results in both an amazing experience and epic photos….

Garden of the Gods Wedding

|
Anya and Ben’s Garden of the Gods wedding was so epic, it couldn’t be contained to a single day or location. Instead, we joined the couple and their guests for three days of partying at the Garden of the Gods Resort and the Pinery, both with equally beautiful – but vastly different – views of Colorado Springs.

Canoeing Engagement Session

|
For never having been to Gross Reservoir before this year, Jesse and I sure ended up spending a lot of time there! In fact, after Amy and Ian’s canoeing engagement session, I’m pretty confident there isn’t a spot we haven’t seen. I’m also pretty confident that it’s one of the best hidden gems in Colorado.

Montana Destination Wedding

|
Allie and Dustin booked us for their Montana destination wedding long before the word “pandemic” landed in our daily lexicon. They wanted plenty of time to plan the ultimate blowout celebration with all their closest friends and family, so they had planned their date two years in advance. Luckily, that meant that they skipped the whole 2020 rescheduling chaos and still got the wedding of their dreams.

Summer Wedding at Planet Bluegrass

|
f you’re looking for the perfect location for your wedding, there are what feels like millions of options to choose from in Colorado. But for Maggie and Justin, whose shared passion for music is only rivaled by their shared love of each other, there was no other possible spot for their summer wedding than Planet Bluegrass. It’s got room to roam. It’s not so far into the mountains that you have to worry about your out-of-town guests driving a mountain pass. It’s just off the highway, but it feels like it’s as far from civilization as you can get. And best of all, it’s a great place to dance the night away to a band!

Boulder Microwedding

|
One of my favorite things about being with couples on their wedding day is witnessing the community they’ve built around themselves.. The best communities don’t have to be big. They often aren’t showy or boisterous. They’re your ride-or-die people. Your emergency contacts. The people who would back you in a fistfight. They’re the people Katie and Paul had next to them at their Boulder microwedding.
