Back-to-back Breckenridge Wedding Weekend

Last Wednesday, as many of you know, a wildfire broke out a few short miles from the town of Breckenridge.  450 homes were evacuated and the entire town was under a pre-evacuation notice.  As I drove to the grocery store on Thursday and lay eyes on the plume of smoke that loomed in the background of Frisco, my heart sank.  I was worried for the town and as for the two weddings we had coming up on Saturday and Sunday in Breckenridge, I wasn’t feeling good about the possibility of those venues not being accessible.  Well, thanks to the men and women that are willing to literally throw themselves in to the line of fire as well as a little help from Mother Nature, things took a major turn for the better come Saturday.  As we documented the celebration of two fabulous couples this weekend, I basked in the fact that the sky was blue and clear of smoke and the threat of destruction had passed.  As I begin editing away at these two days that I’ll remember fondly, I couldn’t help but share a little preview : )

A big congratulations to Courtney & Anthony and Shannon & Steve!

Keystone, Colorado Wedding: Sarah & Tyler

I love that thru this job we get to meet so many people from so many different places.  People are drawn to the Rocky Mountains from all over the country.  We’ve even had several couples come from various corners of the world.  With Tyler from Oklahoma and Sarah from Tennessee, I knew one thing would be true of their wedding…them and their families would be a joy to be around. And they were just that, so kind, so welcoming and so appreciative.  We could not have been more delighted to be the ones to document the first day of what I know will be a beautiful marriage.

Sarah & Tyler exchanged vows on Anticipation ski run at Keystone Ski Resort with their reception following at Timber Ridge lodge on North Peak.  Here is a look at their Colorado wedding!

Colorado Fall Engagement Photos: Stephanie & Cameron

In anticipation of Stephanie & Cameron’s wedding day which is just three weeks away (YAY!!!) I thought I’d share their gorgeous engagement photos from last fall.  Not only are Stephanie & Cameron crazy photogenic but their love for each other is the kind that makes your soul smile when you’re around them.  That and their goldendoodle Rudy might be THE cutest dog I’ve ever met.  Just looking at these makes me wish their wedding would hurry up and get here already.  I have no doubt it’s going to be a great day.  Until then, take a peek at Stephanie & Cameron’s fall engagement photos at some of our favorite spots around Summit County…

Beaver Creek Wedding @ Beano’s Cabin: Lesley & Jake

Whenever I blog about a wedding I attempt to recall specifics.  I figure, if you’re a bride planning your mountain wedding, you would love to know what exactly made a wedding perfect.  Yet, the specifics never come back to me, instead I can only recall a feeling, an emotion.  I guess that’s because it’s not our job to remember what was said in the vows or what advice was given during the toasts. Our job is to capture a feeling, a fleeting moment in time, that can be evoked and relived thru the visuals we’ve captured.

So as I put together these photos from Lesley & Jake’s Beano’s Cabin wedding, I remembered this…these two adore each other…and their family adores them.  Theirs was a day that from the moment we walked in the door we could feel the joy that filled the room.  And Beano’s Cabin could not have been a more perfect place for Lesley & Jake to celebrate the beginning of their marriage.  Here’s a look at Lesley & Jake’s joy captured…

Breckenridge Engagement Photos: Sarah & Tyler

Sarah & Tyler are tying the knot in less than a month on a mountain top in Keystone.  When I spoke with her this morning to finalize their photography details, Sarah wanted to remind me how awkward she is in front of the camera.  So I made a note that candids are of utmost importance to her and then reminded her that she was anything but awkward during her and Tyler’s engagement portrait session.  Quite the opposite actually, I could photograph these two for days.  The camera LOVES them.  So I got off the phone and remembered that I never blogged this beautiful session in Breckenridge last fall.  These photos reminded me of what a fun, gorgeous couple Sarah & Tyler are and I’m over-the-moon for their wedding to get here already!  Check it out…

Devil’s Thumb Ranch Winter Wedding: Lauren & Brendan

Winter weddings in Colorado may be cold (or sometimes downright frigid) but in exchange for the cold is an inexplicable beauty that makes the near frost bite worth it.  Lauren & Brendan wed at Devil’s Thumb Ranch, a luxury ranch resort outside of Winter Park, back in December.  Lauren hoped for snow on her wedding day and Colorado delivered.  The setting could not have been more perfect to celebrate these two beautiful people.  Here’s a look at Lauren & Brendan’s Colorado winter wedding…

Working at Devil’s Thumb Ranch is a joy enough in itself but working with the awesome crew at the DTR stables is the icing on the cake.  They go above and beyond to offer their guests an exceptional experience and go out of their way to do everything they can to see that we get the best photo ops possible with the horses.  A day at work doesn’t get much better : )

40 days on the road

In October, as soon as the craziness of wedding season settled, we packed our truck and hit the road for 40 days of camping throughout Utah, Nevada and Arizona.  Anyone that knows us knows that road trips are our thing and camping for 2 or 4 or sometimes 6 weeks at a time is what we live for.  The beauty of our business is that if we don’t have a shoot to be at, we can run our business from anywhere with an internet connection.  So this fall, the wide open spaces of the Southwest served as our office, living room, backyard and playground.  To many, 40 days without running water or tv or a place to get away from your spouse doesn’t sound like fun but for us, life on the road is heaven.  It doesn’t come without it’s pitfalls but the reward of living in harmony with nature far outweighs the cons.  Every few days we would wake to a new vista out our window, every night we would sit beside a warm fire beneath the stars.  Life’s little nuances fade away and all that’s left is a deep appreciation for this beautiful planet that we so easily take for granted.

After living in less that 100 sq. ft. for over a month, we returned home wondering what all the stuff inside our 1600 sq. ft. house is really for.  We didn’t miss a single thing.  It’s fascinating to learn how little you need to be happy.  As long as I have food, water, shelter and love in my life, I am blessed.  Everything else is just icing on the cake.

A few of my favorite photos from the  trip…

A Steamboat Springs Sleigh Ride Elopment: Kerri & Scott

Looking back at the photos I’m about to share, it’s hard to believe that about 20 minutes before the first click of the shutter I was on the brink of an anxiety attack.  I had an hour long drive to get to Steamboat that took closer to two.  (Luckily, in the winter, we always give ourselves plenty of extra time for our commute)  With a glossy sheet of ice covering the highway and several cars overturned in the ditch along the way, I barely broke 20mph as I nervously crept over Rabbit Ears Pass.  On top of that, I wasn’t feeling well and by the time I rolled in to town the muscles in my leg were having spasms from all the tension.  After some ibuprofen and a few deep breaths I was ready to put it behind me and get to work.  The very moment I met Kerri & Scott, the stress of my morning became ancient history and I was elated at the opportunity to be a part of their stunning Steamboat Springs celebration.  We stopped at a couple of quintessential Steamboat locations for various photos before traveling 45 minutes north to Hahn’s Peak Roadhouse where Kerri & Scott and Scott’s son were met by each of their parents for a sleigh ride elopement.  They exchanged vows at the base of Hahn’s Peak and returned husband and wife.  When I made my way home that evening, I was nothing but grateful to be a part of such a beautiful day.  Here’s a look at Kerri & Scott’s Steamboat Springs elopement…

Winter Park Wedding: Anna & Chris

This past Saturday we kicked off the 2017 winter wedding season with Chris & Anna’s Winter Park wedding!  The copious amount of snow we received here in Colorado this month made for a picturesque day, the kind that winter brides dream of.  The sun offered warm rays throughout the day until dusk brought fresh flakes as we retreated to the Lodge at Sunspot for the reception.  The joy we captured between Anna & Chris is a telling sign that a long, beautiful marriage lie ahead for this happy couple.  Here’s a sneak peek specially prepared for the newlyweds!

What our clients are saying…

Thank you!  Thank you!  Thank you!  We knew when we met you that you were the ones for the job but you have exceeded our expectations by a long shot.  Our photos are amazing and you were both such a pleasure to work with.  Both Todd & I keep saying “Where were they?”.  The candid shots are incredible and the details you thought to capture absolutely rock!  I don’t know what else to say but awesome job.  We enjoyed you both so much!  We hope to see you soon again next time we are in Breck!

Jen

Thank you so much for these amazing photographs and for making the whole photography process so easy!   How you manage to take such beautiful photos in the speed that you do baffles me!  Taking the bridal party and family photos did not keep us away from the party at all.  We have never been happier and the pictures show it.  I feel like you really captured who we are as a couple and as individuals.  It was so easy to be ourselves around you.  Thank you for being a part of it and providing the photographs that allow us to relive it for the rest of our lives!

Erin

Thank you thank you thank you!!! We are absolutely thrilled with the photos. They are exactly what I’d always hoped for and perfectly captured all the events, people and emotions of our day.  Just looking at some of the ceremony ones makes my eyes well up with tears all over again every time I look at them, which is often.  The groomsmen photos are really some of the best pictures of a group of guys I’ve ever seen. Plus we had such a blast hanging out with you and Mark all afternoon! I would recommend you both to all my friends. Thank you for capturing our special day so perfectly.

Jennifer
