Summer Colorado Springs Wedding | Jamie & Chad

Summer Colorado Springs Wedding | Jamie & Chad

Jamie and Chad’s summer wedding in Colorado Springs was full of love, laughter and gorgeous scenery. You’ll quickly realize why Garden of the Gods Resort is one of my favorite places to photograph weddings because the views are hard to beat. I had a feeling that their wedding would be a ton of fun because not only did I capture their engagement photos in Summit County last fall but I also photographed her sister’s wedding a few years ago. It always means a lot when you’re invited back to be part of another huge milestone for the family. I started the day with Jamie while Michael documented everything going on Chad’s side of the resort. I didn’t find out a saber was involved until I…

Spring Engagement in Evergreen | Josh & Todd

Spring Engagement in Evergreen | Josh & Todd

I met up with Josh and Todd for their spring engagement in Evergreen last month. The weather was perfect and we started the day with a hike to Maxwell Falls. The creek was running high so it was a slippery adventure getting to the falls but that half the fun of a location like this. Later we made our way over to Alderfer/Three Sisters Park where we were treated to incredible light all afternoon. These two had a great time together and it was nice to spend some time with them before capturing their wedding later this summer.

Winter Proposal at Devil’s Thumb Ranch | Michael & Sarah

Winter Proposal at Devil’s Thumb Ranch | Michael & Sarah

This was a special moment that they’ll never forget and neither will I. Michael is both a friend and talented photographer who regularly captures weddings with me. It was an honor when he asked me if I would be willing to capture the moment he asked Sarah to marry him. They have been together for quite some time but this specific moment was a complete surprise to Sarah. A weekend getaway Christmas gift from Sarah’s mother created the perfect ruse for Michael to finally pop the question. Last month, Michael and I ventured up to the area for a half-day of skiing before going over to Devil’s Thumb Ranch to scout out the area. We walked around the property, found the perfect spot and I…

Winter Wedding at Woodlands | Lindsey & Josh

Winter Wedding at Woodlands | Lindsey & Josh

Lindsey and Josh’s winter wedding at Woodlands in Morrison was an absolute blast to capture. I shouldn’t really be surprised because I met them earlier this year tearing up the dance floor at Mel and Drew’s wedding. They brought even more energy to their own wedding day which made our jobs that much easier. I started the day with Lindsey and the ladies at Origin Hotel Red Rocks while they got ready. Meanwhile, Travis met up the guys over at Woodlands before we all eventually joined them at the venue. Josh and Lindsey were incredibly present in each and every moment with everyone around them, especially each other. I could feel them soaking up every ounce of the day. I’m glad we could capture those…

Winter Wedding in Breckenridge | Chris & Julia

Winter Wedding in Breckenridge | Chris & Julia

Chris and Julia travelled all the way from the East coast for their gorgeous winter wedding in Breckenridge. Not only did they have their closest friends and family but they even brought their dogs along as well. They’re both thoughtful, caring people so I was looking forward to capturing their day. From the moment Michael and I walked in the door you could tell how incredible of a day it was for everyone involved. It’s been a fairly mild winter thus far in Summit County but I took them up to Sawmill Reservoir for their first look in search of some snow. The sun was shining and we found the winter wonderland backdrop that I knew they were hoping for. The ceremony and reception included…

Engagement near Copper Mountain | Caitlin & Gavin

Engagement near Copper Mountain | Caitlin & Gavin

The fall colors hung around this year long enough for Caitlin and Gavin’s engagement near Copper Mountain. As has become commonplace, I met them for a beer at Outer Range Brewing before we got started. I love sharing my favorite brewery with clients while we chat about some of the wedding details. After a quick stop along the Frisco bike path, we ventured over to Officers Gulch. We found some great light coming over the ridge but unfortunately the aspens along the hillside had already fallen for the year. Upper elevations had received some snow in the area so we made the drive up to Clinton Gulch Dam Reservoir. The light was incredible and there wasn’t a soul in sight. Caitlin and Gavin are getting…

Fall Engagement in Breckenridge | Diana & Eric

Fall Engagement in Breckenridge | Diana & Eric

Eric and Diana recently moved to Colorado from the east coast. For their fall engagement in Breckenridge I took them to one of the best locations for fall colors photos in all of Summit County, Boreas Pass. We enjoyed a beer in town before exploring all of the colorful aspen trees that line Boreas Pass Road. We chased the sun, unsuccessfully, twice up the mountain at the summit of the pass. I’m pretty sure all three of us are still catching our breath. Thankfully the views make up for the lack of oxygen at that altitude. Watching the sun set over the Tenmile Range is just one of the reasons that I love Breckenridge and Boreas Pass for engagement photos. They’re getting married at one…

Fall Telluride Engagement Photos | Anna & Cait

Fall Telluride Engagement Photos | Anna & Cait

Colorado was absolutely showing off for Anna and Cait’s fall Telluride engagement photos. The vibrant hues of the aspen trees were full of peak color throughout San Miguel County the week that we arrived for their session. Anna is one of my closest friends so I was honored when Cait and her asked me to photograph their engagement and wedding next year. We wanted to go beyond the typical session so we booked a rental in downtown Telluride and made the trek to one of the most beautiful mountain towns in all of Colorado. We explored all over Telluride, Mountain Village and even ventured out to Ophir and Trout Lake for a few images over the course of two afternoons. I’m glad that we had…

Colorado Small Mountain Town Engagement | Kelly & WIlly

Colorado Small Mountain Town Engagement | Kelly & WIlly

I’ve been wanting to photograph in Crested Butte for some time now. Capturing Kelly and Willy’s Colorado small mountain town engagement seemed like the perfect excuse for a trip to the area. Ever since I witnessed and documented their Valentine’s Day proposal in Denver I’ve been excited to work with them again. They have incredible energy and wonderful chemistry together that makes them a joy to photograph. We were lucky to be able to spend the night before in CB at a family friend’s mountain home. Kelly and Willy joined Amy and I where we enjoyed a few bottles of wine over a few hours of great conversation. The next morning we woke up to rain, sleet, snow and low fog. I didn’t think we…

Colorful engagement in Summit County | Jamie & Chad

Colorful engagement in Summit County | Jamie & Chad

It’s that time of the year that we’ve been waiting for. Jamie and Chad’s colorful engagement in Summit County was full of prime leaf peeping. I met up with them at Outer Range Brewing for a beer before getting started with their engagement photos. We stopped at several locations in and around Dillon Reservoir and Frisco over the course of a few hours. Everywhere we went, the golden hues of the trees were spectacular. They brought their dogs, Bailey and Bentley, along for the photos and Jamie’s brother Patrick was a big help keeping track of them. Travis even tagged along to hold a light for me. We had soft, overcast skies for most of the day before an vibrant sunset rolled in to end…
