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…

Fall elopement in Granby | Briana & Tim

Fall elopement in Granby | Briana & Tim

I recently had the opportunity to capture Briana and Tim’s fall elopement in Granby. I’m always honored when a couple asks me to be one of the very few people with them on such a special day. Ever since their fall engagement in Boulder last year I knew that I’d be looking forward to it all year. When I arrived, Tim and their dog Norman greeted me at the door. While he finished a few last minute details I joined Briana while she got ready upstairs. Before too long, Briana and myself headed out the door and up the Quick Draw Express chairlift to the ceremony site at Granby Ranch. Tim, their friend Contessa and dog Norman looked on as Briana entered through a grove…

Sunset National Park Engagement | Beth & Riley

Sunset National Park Engagement | Beth & Riley

I recently met up with Beth and Riley who were in town visiting Estes Park. Riley proposed a short time ago so it was the perfect opportunity to capture their engagement photos while they were here. Naturally, we ventured into Rocky Mountain National Park in search of a few gorgeous locations. We made stops at a lush aspen grove and gorgeous waterfall before finishing the day in the meadow as the sun set behind the mountains. The wildfire smoke is never a welcome sight but it did highlight the different layers of the mountains in the valley. It was a pleasure to spend a few hours getting to know these two and making a few photos along the way.

Mountain Views Engagement in Boulder | Melanie and Colin

Mountain Views Engagement in Boulder | Melanie and Colin

I recently had the opportunity to capture Melanie and Colin’s mountain views engagement in Boulder. It’s been a while since we had a chance to connect so we grabbed a beer at Sanitas Brewing before getting started. We ironed out a few wedding details and they provided some great places to check out for an upcoming trip that Amy and I are taking. After a few laughs we made the drive up to Gross Reservoir to start their session. It’s been on my radar for a bit and I’m glad we could experience a new place together for a few photos. The blue sky and calm water made it a great place to check out. We even managed to find the first bits of fall…

Summer Mountain Resort Wedding | Mel & Drew

Summer Mountain Resort Wedding | Mel & Drew

Mel and Drew’s summer mountain resort wedding at Copper Mountain has been circled on the calendar for quite some time. From the moment I met them back in 2019 I knew that they would be a blast to work with. Their fall colors engagement in Aspen was a fun adventure. I also enjoyed capturing their micro mountain wedding last year when their big celebration had to be postponed until now. I throughly enjoy working with all my clients but I connected with Drew and Mel on a different level. Part of that is definitely a result of communicating with them for such a long time. For more than two years we’ve exchanged countless emails, text messages and phone calls planning three separate days of photos….

Summer Wedding in Sedalia | Casey & Darren

Summer Wedding in Sedalia | Casey & Darren

Casey and Darren are two incredible people. From the moment we began chatting about their wedding plans I knew that they would be wonderful to work with. Since they live in Austin and because of the pandemic, most of our communication was remote but thorough. Like myself, Casey is detail oriented. Our conversations ranged from rescheduling their wedding, twice, to the color of the bridesmaid dresses and so much more minutia in between. I finally had the chance to meet them in person for their fall colors engagement in Summit County last September. Darren is the kind of genuine guy who looks you in the eye when he shakes your hand but doesn’t take his everyday life too seriously. Two rescheduled wedding dates later, their…

Mountaintop proposal in Colorado | James & Laurie

Mountaintop proposal in Colorado | James & Laurie

Capturing this mountaintop proposal in Colorado was an absolute adrenaline rush. James contacted me a few months back as he was planning on proposing during their vacation here. Guanella Pass was the perfect location because it was easy to get to and has some spectacular views of the surrounding mountains. I spotted their car on the drive up so our timing was perfect. After they headed up the trail I snuck up the backside of the hill and hid behind a rock until James gave me a thumbs up. Thankfully Laurie never saw me as James got down on one knee. He asked, and of course, she said yes. She was completely surprised, again, when James pointed me out in the distance. We spent the…

Rainy summer wedding in Littleton | Jennifer and Stefan

Rainy summer wedding in Littleton | Jennifer and Stefan

I was incredibly excited when I woke up the morning of Jennifer and Stefan’s wedding day that was taking place at The Barn at Raccoon Creek. Ever since I met Jennifer and Stefan more than two years ago and had a blast during their fall engagement in Evergreen, I knew this would be a date to circle on the calendar. They opted to get married in front of close family and friends last year when this big celebration had to be postponed. I documented those important moments for them and have been looking forward to celebrating with them again this year. I was reminded of how organized and carefully thought out their day would be while listening to Jennifer’s mom, Sue, address the wedding party…

Littleton Engagement | Kelsey & Colin

Littleton Engagement | Kelsey & Colin

It was great to finally meet up with Kelsey and Colin to chat about the wedding and capture photos during their Littleton engagement session. As with so many couples lately, this was the first time that I was able to meet them in person. It was fantastic to drink a beer together in the parking lot before we got going. While we were in the middle of an outfit change a guy came down the trail holding a live rattlesnake that was sunning on the trail. I’m appreciative of him moving the snake to a better location but don’t expect to see photos of that below because I didn’t want to encourage him to come say hi with said snake in hand. The area southeast…

Snowy Summit County Engagement | Nicole & Brad

Snowy Summit County Engagement | Nicole & Brad

Nicole and Brad recently travelled into town for a bit of planning for their wedding later this summer. While they were here I met up with them for a snowy Summit County engagement session. We started the day at Officers Gulch. It’s one of my favorite locations in the area but I hand’t photographed there in the winter. I absolutely loved Nicole’s colorful jacket. Not only did it perfectly match her personality but the color popped in the snow. We travelled over to the peninsula on Dillon Reservoir for a different view. The wind was howling so Brad gave Nicole his scarf to keep her warm. I noticed an old red barn that made for something different than everything that I captured all day. Finally…
