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…

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…

Winter Micro Wedding in Aspen | Olivia & Kyle

Winter Micro Wedding in Aspen | Olivia & Kyle

Olivia and Kyle have been dreaming of this day for quite a while. Like many others, the pandemic forced them to reschedule. They still wanted to get married and decided that tying the knot on the same day that they got engaged would be the perfect way to commit their lives to each other. They planned the perfect winter micro wedding in Aspen. I met the two of them shortly before their first look at The St. Regis Aspen Resort. Seeing the tears roll down Kyle’s face when he saw Olivia was a small reminder of how much I love what I do. Capturing those moments for a couple means everything. We took a few photos with their dog, Marshall, before heading up the Silver…

Winter Elopement in Estes Park | Michell & Mikhail

Winter Elopement in Estes Park | Michell & Mikhail

When Michell and Mikhail contacted me about their winter elopement in Estes Park I was excited because I knew how much they would enjoy the beauty that Colorado has to offer. I enjoy sharing the state with couples who travel in for their special day. I met them at The Stanley Hotel in Estes for a quick photo before we drove up to Sprague Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park for their elopement ceremony. I loved the laughter, love and emotion that they shared with each other. Their vows rang incredibly true to their commitment to one another. The moment was raw and real. I was a joy to be able to not only capture those moments but also be a witness to their day….

Micro Mountain Wedding in Colorado | Mel and Drew

Micro Mountain Wedding in Colorado | Mel and Drew

Mel and Drew are like almost all of my couples their year. They had to postpone their big day to next year so they opted for a micro mountain wedding in Colorado’s high country said “I do” on their date. Their parents, Mel’s brother and his fiancee joined the officiant and his wife at Clinton Gulch Dam Reservoir for the intimate ceremony. They had an ecstatic first look. I love their energy and love for one another and I’m not just saying that to make this blog post sound good. They are so happy together. I experienced it first hand at their fall engagement session at Maroon Bells. Amy and I had a blast with them back then and we can’t wait to get out…

Colorado Mountain House Elopement | Marla & Chris

Colorado Mountain House Elopement | Marla & Chris

Five years ago I was asked last minute (literally two hours notice) to fill in on a soccer team headed to Crested Butte for a weekend tournament. I didn’t know a soul on the team and got in a car with a couple of complete strangers bound for the mountains and a new adventure. Looking back, it was a little crazy I knew it would be a story someday so I just went with it. Marla and Chris happened to be on the team. Though they weren’t officially dating at the time we could all tell that the chemistry between the two of them was there. Fast forward to 2020 and we all know how the story goes at this point. Their East Coast wedding…

Colorado Mountain Ranch Wedding | Laura & Ryan

Colorado Mountain Ranch Wedding | Laura & Ryan

Laura and Ryan got married earlier this month at the beautiful and rustic 4 Eagle Ranch in Wolcott just outside of Vail. It’s been an unusual year to say the least so it was great to get back to work, if only briefly, to capture their incredible day. I’ve enjoyed working with them from the start. They brought beer, chips and an avocado to share during their mountain lake engagement session last summer. We had a blast. Simply put, they’re great people and despite the pandemic I was going to do everything I could to document their day as it unfolded. It was different but the same in so many ways. I was glad that Michael could join me to help photograph the wedding and…

Honored by the Wedding Photojournalist Association

Honored by the Wedding Photojournalist Association

Capturing moments on a wedding day is something that as a wedding photojournalist I believe is the most important part of my job. I’m there to document the day for my clients and their families so that they can relive it all for years to come. I want couples to love their images but it’s also nice to be recognized by the industry, specifically the Wedding Photojournalist Association. The organization has strict standards and ethics which is a big reason why I choose to surround myself with like minded peers in the industry. Each year the WPJA recognizes the top wedding photojournalists in the world based on the moments they captured throughout the year and I was fortunate to be included in that list. As…

Colorful Greek Wedding in Denver | Ioanna & Alex

Colorful Greek Wedding in Denver | Ioanna & Alex

When Ioanna reached out to me about her and Alex’s wedding she mentioned that one of her close friends passed my name along to her. The thing was, I didn’t actually photograph Vanna’s wedding. After connecting with me, Wanna eventually decided to hire someone else but encouraged Ioanna to contact me when she was looking for a photographer for her wedding. When Ioanna told me this story, it really stuck with me that I could have such a strong impact on someone who didn’t actually hire me. I was incredibly touched by this gesture. Over the course of the year we connected several times about the wedding and with each detail revealed my excitement for the day grew. I’ve done tons of Greek weddings over…
