2020-2022 in Review | Behind the Scenes

The past three years since the start of the pandemic have all just blended together. So much has changed since Mid march 2020 when I was photographing an engagement session and the world began to shut down. Little did I know at the time, but we would only capture two full weddings that year. While it was incredibly difficult the past three seasons dealing with all of the cancellations and reschedules, it is rewarding to look at how far we’ve all come since that point. I’ve been fortunate to work with so many amazing couples and colleagues these past few years. Travis, Michael, Trent, Amy, Amanda and David have been instrumental to the success of each and every wedding day. Couples have brought us to…

Fall Colors Engagement near Frisco | Danielle & Gabe

Fall Colors Engagement near Frisco | Danielle & Gabe

Colorado was showing off for Danielle and Gabe’s fall colors engagement near Frisco. I met up with them at Outer Range for a quick beer before we explored the surrounding area. A secret spot was our first spot and the colors were exceptional. After an outfit change we ventured over to Dillon Reservoir for the rest of the evening. Not only were the aspen trees stunning but we were also treated to a great sunset to cap off the session. I can’t wait for their wedding at Piney River Ranch next fall.

Luxury Hotel Wedding in Denver | Jessica & Sambit

Luxury Hotel Wedding in Denver | Jessica & Sambit

Jessica and Sambit’s luxury hotel wedding in Denver at the Four Seasons will be one I’ll remember for a long time. Everything about their day was spectacular but their thoughtfulness for both each other and the people that mattered most to them stood out to me. When Trent and I walked in the hotel, Donnah with Poised Events was getting things set up and informed me that Jessica’s grandmother wasn’t going to be able to attend the wedding. This kind of thing happens somewhat regularly but I knew how important having her grandmother there meant to Jessica after several conversations together. She even moved the wedding date up so that her grandmother could be there. I knew we had to do something so I suggested…

Sunset engagement in Frisco | Cassy & David

Sunset engagement in Frisco | Cassy & David

I had a great time getting to know Cassy and David during their sunset engagement in Frisco. They’re currently living on the East Coast but we were able to get together while they were in town doing some wedding planning. Our first stop took us over to Officers Gulch in Frisco which always offers a good mix of water and wilderness. We even found the last bit of wildflowers in bloom for the season. After an outfit change we drove up to Shrine Pass and were treated to some epic light. The sun was screaming through the clouds and we took advantage of it. The cotton candy sunset capped off a perfect evening with these two. I’m looking forward to their wedding at the Ellie…

Summer wedding in Breck | Anna & Cait

Summer wedding in Breck | Anna & Cait

It’s easy to admit that this was the most anticipated day of the year for me. There is something incredibly special about being asked to photograph such an important day for one of your closest friends. Our mutual love of golf brought us together but that’s only the beginning of our friendship. Anna and I have shared all our highs and lows with each other so it seemed only fitting that we could experience this day together as well. Watching Anna’s face light up and her laugh get even louder around Cait gives me comfort that my friend as found her person. Cait has been a joy to get to know and I’m incredibly happy for them both. Their fall Telluride engagement session was going…

Mid-Mountain Wedding in Colorado | Keely & Steven

Mid-Mountain Wedding in Colorado | Keely & Steven

Keelly and Steven’s mid-mountain wedding in Colorado at Arapahoe Basin was one for the record books. Not only was the scenery gorgeous but the moments and energy made this one I’ll never forget. Travis and I throughly enjoyed spending time and getting to know so many of their guests throughout the day. Things were a bit quiet during the morning and Keely and her crew listened to Taylor Swift while they got ready. Steven and the guys broke out the good tequila early and that set the tone for the day. Once they saw each other during their first look atop Loveland Pass Keely’s smile lit up. They are incredibly genuine people and it showed on each and every aspect of their wedding day. The…

Summer wedding near Vail | Alice & Miranda

Summer wedding near Vail | Alice & Miranda

Miranda and Alice’s summer wedding near vail last month was so much fun to be part of. When I captured their engagement photos in Washington, D.C. last fall they took Travis and myself out for a memorable Indian dinner and beers. We had a blast getting to know them and enjoying a meal together. It was the perfect start to our time in the nation’s capital before we photographed a wedding later in the week. The ladies got their hair and makeup done at The Hythe in Vail before making the bumpy trek up to Piney River Ranch. There were a few nerves but once they saw each other during their first look the rest of the day was full of energy. Their smiles and…

Summer Mountaintop Wedding | Caitlin & Gavin

Summer Mountaintop Wedding | Caitlin & Gavin

Caitlin and Gavin’s summer mountaintop wedding at Arapahoe Basin was a ton of fun to document. It rained on us a few different times but that didn’t stop them from having an amazing day. Ever since I captured their engagement near Copper Mountain last fall I’ve been looking forward to their wedding. Michael and I arrived at their rental home as they were finishing getting ready for the day. With the weather looming, we soon headed up to Loveland Pass for their first look before heading over to Black Mountain Lodge for the ceremony and reception. The laughter was plentiful during their picture perfect ceremony. They even managed to sneak outside between storms for a few photos that evening before tearing up the dance floor…

Outdoor wedding in RiNo | Kelly & Willy

Outdoor wedding in RiNo | Kelly & Willy

It’s not hard for me to admit that I was looking forward to Kelly and Willy’s outdoor wedding in RiNo for a year and a half. Ever since I captured their Valentines Day proposal in Denver they have been one of my favorite couples. Their energy is infectious and was ever present during their Colorado small town engagement in Crested Butte last fall. It all led up to their incredible celebration at Blanc in July. It was a pleasure to witness how happy they were all day. From the moment we walked in the door they were each smiling from ear to ear. Their families and friends matched their effervescence so capturing all the moments was a breeze. The weather was spectacular which allowed them…

Classic Colorado Wedding | Diana & Eric

Classic Colorado Wedding | Diana & Eric

Eric and Diana’s Classic Colorado wedding was a blast to capture from start to finish. When we walked in the door the music was playing and the energy was high. It came as no surprise after we spent time together during their fall engagement in Breckenridge. These two have a great time together so I knew their wedding day would be a ton of fun. Michael photographed Eric and the guys getting ready while I was just down the street with Diana and the rest of the wedding party. The weather was ominous all morning but we snuck out of the house a little early for first look on Loveland Pass and I’m glad we did. We managed to find a few great spots for…
