Behind the Scenes (Pt. 3)

|
It’s been a couple of years since we’ve posted our favorite wedding photography behind the scenes photos of us working. So, we thought it’s about time to do just that! This post encompasses most, but not all, of our shoots from the fall of 2019 right up to present day (the winter of 2022.) This,…

New Year’s Eve Wedding

|
Most of the time when we book a December wedding, we don’t expect snow. The day inevitably ends up being 60 degrees and sunny. Last year, in particular, had been especially dry for Colorado. But at the last possible second, a snow globe settled over Estes Park, making Madelyne and Zach’s New Year’s Eve wedding…

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….

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.

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.
