As far as wedding days go, these two planned one of the best: ✓ Good friends, ✓ Good food,✓ Good wine, and ✓ Stunning ambiance. For Morgan and Brad’s portrait sessions (that’s right,…

Best of 2022

Best of 2022

It’s that time of year again when we take a moment to look back at our year in weddings. Our best wedding photos of 2022 span nearly 11 months, from February in Estes Park all the way up to New Year’s Eve in Vail. We had quite a few “firsts” this year and checked off…

Donovan Pavilion Wedding

Donovan Pavilion Wedding

For the third year in a row, Jesse and I had the honor of spending New Year’s Eve celebrating the beginning of a marriage in a breathtaking location (see 2021 and 2022). This year’s festivities took us to Vail for Melissa and Ben’s Donovan Pavilion wedding. In years’ past, we’ve tried out allllll the New…

Cielo at Castle Pines Wedding

Cielo at Castle Pines Wedding

There’s that old adage that good things come to those who wait. But poor Sheridan and Danny ended up waiting four years for their Cielo at Castle Pines wedding. Nevertheless, one deployment, two COVID reschedules, and one adorable little baby later, their celebration was absolutely worth the wait! And while I could talk about how…

Hotel Colorado Wedding

The Hotel Colorado is known for its many famous guests. From Teddy Roosevelt, who stayed often enough that it became known as the “White House of the West,” to the unsinkable Molly Brown, to notorious gangster Al Capone. At the beginning of this month, it added Kristen and David and their wedding guests to the…

Telluride Wedding

After all, when the cake has been devoured and the flowers have withered and the last song has played, the things that remain from a wedding day are…

Colorado Adventure Elopement

Colorado Adventure Elopement

I think the most common question I get during timeline consultations is, “Is it too late to elope?” This is typically asked in jest; the final weeks leading up to a wedding can get pretty overwhelming. But if you’re like Laura and Connor, you probably know right away that a big wedding isn’t for you….

Sanctuary Wedding

Sanctuary Wedding

Most of the time, in Colorado, rain in the forecast means that you need to postpone the ceremony by about 15 minutes for a torrential downpour to do its thing and move on. Then all you have to do is get the chairs wiped down and you’re good to go! But for Michelle and Joe’s…

Dunafon Castle Wedding

Dunafon Castle Wedding

When we first heard about Narcissa and Bassil’s Dunafon Castle wedding, we were already familiar with and fans of the venue’s vibes. I love telling people about the Dunafon Castle, especially where it’s located. It’s such a surprise. Right in the middle of a windy mountain road is a castle surrounded by lush grounds, waterfalls,…
