Best of 2016

Another year and another great wedding season in the books! You know what that means. It’s time again to take a look back at the year in weddings (and engagements) with another installment of our annual year-end wrap up. With all of our great couples and venues, we found it extremely difficult to whittle this down to…

Boulder Engagement

Based on Mo and Trey’s Boulder engagement session photos, you wouldn’t have guessed that we were on one of the busiest trails in Boulder the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Despite Shanahan Ridge Trail being filled with people who ate too much and were trying to burn off calories before they do it all over again at Christmas,…

Colorado Horse Ranch Engagement

We’re behind the Chinese New Year by approximately two years, apparently, because 2016 has been our own Year of the Horse. With Tank and Thunder at Devil’s Thumb Ranch and an unnamed mare at our most recent wedding, we’re starting to sense a trend. One which we happily continued with yesterday’s Colorado horse ranch engagement shoot…

Hindu Wedding in Colorado Springs

This was no ordinary Hindu wedding in Colorado Springs. This wedding was marked by color and emotion and blithe celebration. The couple smiled all day long, but their smiles were the brightest when they were looking at each other. Astha and Roberto built a beautiful, solid, occasionally uneven bridge between two very different but incredibly vibrant…

Boulder Brewery Engagement

Even though I’m not from Colorado originally, I’ve embraced the dogs + microbrew lifestyle 100%. So when Kelly and Nick mentioned that they have three goofy dogs and like to visit breweries, it was a no-brainer to combine these activities for their Boulder brewery engagement session. With the most perfect fall weather, we started off with a…

Vail Wedding

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…

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…

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 their super fun Mon Cheri…

Shadow Mountain Ranch Wedding

Here’s some life advice: marry someone who will have inflatable raptor fights with you. Leigh and Tyler are lucky to have found their raptor fight partners in each other. Their dinosaur-themed Shadow Mountain Ranch wedding was the perfect laid-back party to celebrate their marriage. The day started with their first look by a quiet stream…
