Spring Gardens Engagement | Erika & Wafik

Spring Gardens Engagement | Erika & Wafik

Erika and Wafik recently travelled back home to Colorado to do some wedding planning and while they were in town we were able to sneak in their spring gardens engagement session. Amy and I are actually members of the Denver Botanic Gardens so it was fun to see it in a different way. We explored all over and were treated to some lovely light that evening. The serene space fit their personalities really well and offered a completely different look to the winter wedding they’re planning for next year.

Spring engagement in Colorado Springs | Shaina & Carter

Spring engagement in Colorado Springs | Shaina & Carter

I always enjoy when couples choose locations that are meaningful to them. The Broadmoor was the perfect location for Shaina and Carter’s Spring engagement in Colorado Springs because it’s where Carter proposed. The iconic grounds of the 5-star resort served as a gorgeous backdrop for the elegant attire that they chose for the first part of the session. Later we headed over to Garden of the Gods for both a change of outfits and scenery. The drizzly rain added some great texture to the soft light that we had that evening. I’m looking forward to their wedding in Denver later this summer.

Winter Wedding in Summit County | Jane & David

Winter Wedding in Summit County | Jane & David

Jane and David’s love for the mountains is hard to top. It’s their playground and nothing would have been more fitting than having all their most important people join them mid-mountain for a winter wedding in Summit County at Arapahoe Basin. It took several years to convince Louise at A Bay to open up their doors for their first ever winter wedding. Converting a space from a ski lodge to something fit for a wedding day in just a few hours is no easy task but the team did an incredible job making it all happen. A few injury complications prevented them from skiing on their wedding day so I knew that I wanted to incorporate something special for them. Jane and David are regulars…

Summer Mountain Lake Wedding | Danielle & Gabe

Summer Mountain Lake Wedding | Danielle & Gabe

Danielle and Gabe had the picture perfect summer mountain lake wedding a few weeks ago up at Piney River Ranch. They’ve been a blast to work with since their engagement session in Frisco last fall. Danielle never stopped smiling the entire time she and the ladies were getting ready. Gabe got to play catch with the Gore Range as a backdrop which was something he mentioned to me when we first met. Add in a canoe ride as newlyweds and a few moose sightings and you’ll understand how great of a day they had. Shayna and her team with Cherry Bomb Events did incredible job coordinating everything and making the space look incredible. Cheers Danielle and Gabe. Thanks for letting us be a small part…

Sunset engagement in Evergreen | Felicia & Dan

Sunset engagement in Evergreen | Felicia & Dan

I had a great time with Felicia and Dan during their sunset engagement in Evergreen last month. We met up at the brewery nearby for a beer before heading over to Evergreen Lake for the first part of their session. They were naturals and we had so many laughs. The sun started to peek through the clouds just as we neared the end of the 15 minute hike to the top of Brother’s Lookout the sun peeked out from behind the clouds. I always love Alderfer/Three Sisters Park because the light can be incredible and it didn’t disappoint. I can’t wait for their wedding this fall at Blackstone Rivers Ranch.

Summer Wedding in Crested Butte | Sarah & Michael

Summer Wedding in Crested Butte | Sarah & Michael

There is no greater honor than when another photographer asks you to photograph their wedding. Not only is Michael an incredible photographer, but he is a great fiend and also photographs weddings with me a few times a year so this one was extra special. I was able to capture his winter proposal at Devil’s Thumb Ranch and I’m so glad that I had the opportunity to photograph their summer wedding in Crested Butte at Mountain Wedding Garden. The joy of their day comes through in the images so I’ll let that tell the story. Thank you Sarah and Michael for allowing Travis and myself to document your day! Thanks to the incredible team that helped it all come together. Lucky Penny Events, TH Entertainment,…

Wildflower Micro Wedding in Steamboat Springs | Rebecca & Noel

Wildflower Micro Wedding in Steamboat Springs | Rebecca & Noel

Rebecca and Noel had the perfect wildflower micro wedding in Steamboat Springs last weekend. They had 25 of their closest family and friends in attendance to celebrate with them. It was 100% their day as they avoided all the things that weren’t important to them which is something I wish more couples would do. After getting ready separately, they saw each other during first look prior to sharing their vows with each other privately. They jumped in the side by side ATV and drove us out to a field of wildflowers. It was like nothing that I’ve ever been able to photograph on a wedding day. A quick Colorado rainstorm chased us inside for a bit but the sun came out for their ceremony. Noel…

Summertime Engagement in Fort Collins

Summertime Engagement in Fort Collins

I recently met up with Heather and Stephen for their summertime engagement in Fort Collins. They’re getting married later this year at Arapahoe Basin so they wanted some engagement photos near their home in northern Colorado. We grabbed a beer nearby at Rally King Brewing before walking over to the trail behind their house. Thanks to all the moisture this year everything was lush and green. The light was perfect unter the big willow tree that they love and spend so much time at. After a quick outfit change we headed over to Horsetooth Reservoir for the second half of the evening. It was a ton of fun to climb around on the rock formations and find some interesting angles with them. We were even…

Winter Sleigh Ride Proposal in Breckenridge | Jake & Avery

Winter Sleigh Ride Proposal in Breckenridge | Jake & Avery

Jake has been planning the perfect proposal for a few months. With Ruby, the horse, looking on during their sleigh ride in Breckenridge, he got down on one knee and asked Avery to marry him. Of course, she said yes. We had worked out a plan for me to tag along as an advertising photographer working for the sleigh ride company. It was a complete surprise to Avery and everything went off without a hitch. Jake had some friends set up a cute spot in the snow along the route beforehand and had champagne, flowers and chocolates waiting back in the sleigh. It’s always a treat to be able to both witness and capture such a special moment. Congratulations you two!!

Winter Engagement in Summit County | Nicole & Brett

Winter Engagement in Summit County | Nicole & Brett

I had a great time with Nicole and Brett for their winter engagement in Summit County recently. They flew in from Los Angeles to do some wedding planning and we were able to get their session in while they were here. It was a chilly afternoon but the bluebird sky made up for it all. We started over at Dillon Reservoir and had the frozen water all to ourselves. The view of the Tenmile Range never disappoints. Before it got too late, we drove up to Loveland Pass for the rest of the day. It actually felt warmer up at 11,991′ than it did down in the valley so Nicole was able to break out a few dresses that looked great against the snow. Perfect…
