Royal Gorge Engagement

|
I’ve been on a gondola or two in my day. But I’ve never experienced a ride like the one we took for Hanna and Dan’s Royal Gorge engagement session. Traveling almost 1000 ft. above the raging Arkansas River, the aerial gondola that takes you from one side of the gorge to the other isn’t for…

White Sands Engagement

|
Last weekend, we traded white snow flurries in Colorado for bright white sand dunes, stretching out for miles in New Mexico. While we’re no strangers to sandy Alt Sessions, Ashleigh and Tony’s White Sands engagement session had a particularly otherworldly feel to it. A mere 70 miles from the Mexico border, the entrance to White…

Behind the Scenes (Pt. 2)

A couple years ago, we posted a collection of behind the scenes photos from our weddings over the years. Now it’s time for round two! Most of these photos are just for laughs, but some of them give a bit of insight into “how the sausage is made.” We all see wedding photos on a…

Spruce Mountain Ranch Wedding

Jesse and I always say that it’s your wedding’s imperfections that make it memorable. And that’s true, I promise. But we don’t ever hope that one of your wedding’s imperfections is food poisoning. Unfortunately for Ajay and Jacob, the night before their Spruce Mountain Ranch wedding brought just that. Now, normally, I wouldn’t start off…

Ironworks Wedding

After most weddings, Jesse and I head home to drink whiskey and cull photos into the early morning hours. Not so after Christine and Dan’s wedding. Instead, we unpacked, hydrated, stretched, recharged batteries, and recharged ourselves.

Tapestry House Microwedding

There are so many things I love about Alli and Shawn and their Tapestry House wedding, I don’t even know where to begin. Maybe with the most obvious? They feel the same way we do about white dresses in that they’re not a requirement for a wedding. Alli actually told me about the dress she…
