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…

River Bend Wedding

Perhaps the most amazing thing about weddings in Colorado is the fantastic natural beauty of the surroundings. Katy and Adam’s River Bend wedding was no different. Not only was the location impressive, combining red sandstone, a cool river, and bright green trees, they made sure to incorporate Colorado’s wild nature into their wedding details. The…

Off the Clock: Alaska

Whether it’s for business or pleasure, Moira and I love to travel. And it’s been a lifelong goal of mine to visit each of the 50 states. I’ve been stuck at 49 for the better part of a decade and my white whale (Alaska) has been very near the top of my travel wishlist for…

Chatfield Gardens Wedding

It’s been a season of firsts for us – from a nighttime portrait with the Denver skyline in the background to a pre-wedding snowboarding shoot at Beaver Creek. And while we’ve had plenty of adorable dogs and children as ring bearers, last weekend was the first time we had a mini-pig trot the rings down…

University of Denver Wedding

There’s a lot you can say about Colorado, but you certainly can’t say the weather here is boring. We saw clouds, a little bit of sun popping out, light drizzle, torrential downpour, snow flurries, and even graupel at Alliy and Phil’s University of Denver wedding on Saturday. But I was most impressed by the couple’s attitudes through the entire day. They…
