Wild Basin Lodge Wedding

Wedding days will go wrong. They’ll be imperfect. But with the right attitude, they can be more enjoyable and create more lasting memories than a “perfect” wedding day. Nothing could have illustrated this better than Emily and Luther’s Wild Basin Lodge wedding last weekend! The Wednesday before their wedding found me shopping for snow chains…

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….
