Houston Wedding

It’s been a long time since we’ve taken a road trip, so it was a breath of fresh air to kick off 2021 with a drive down to Texas for McKenzie and Jake’s Houston wedding on New Year’s Day. Torrential downpours made the last 200 miles of the drive a bit treacherous, but we still…

Denver Micro Wedding

We had the most epic Alt Session planned for Emily and Jake. I was in the midst of arranging locations and timing right around mid-March. So, yeah. That didn’t happen.

We seriously get all the best clients. Like Ashleigh and Tony, who proved that they’d not only follow us into a desert for their White Sands National Park Alt Session, they’d trek to the top of a mountain for their Vail elopement!

Pinery at the Hill Wedding

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. Because we had a big responsibility to bring our A-game to Frances and Bryce’s Ironworks wedding the very next…
