Flying Diamond Ranch Wedding in Steamboat Springs: Meagan & Michael

Meagan & Michael

Flying Diamond Ranch | Steamboat Springs, CO

I am so damn lucky to work on a weekly basis at one stunning Colorado destination wedding venue or another.  From mountain tops to sprawling meadows, I am constantly in awe of how much joy the Rocky Mountains bring me.  However, there is one particular venue that for me, really stands out among the rest…Flying Diamond Ranch in Steamboat Springs.  From the towering aspen groves to the panoramic Yampa Valley views to the lush rolling hills to the top-notch service, Flying Diamond Ranch is a dream wedding destination.

Meagan & Michael’s wedding celebration was one picture perfect moment after another but the highlight of their day was the moment we were greeted with one of the most incredible sunsets I’ve seen at a wedding.  (Fun fact: Steamboat always delivers when it comes to sunsets.)  And, thanks to the Flying Diamond team, we were whisked away to some of the property’s most picturesque spots for sunset photos.  Nothing makes me happier than when all the vendors seamlessly collaborate as a team to execute the best possible experience for our couples.  That’s exactly what last Saturday was all about.

Meagan & Michael, it was an absolute blast getting the opportunity to document your wedding day!  It could not have been more gorgeous!  We hope you love this little sneak peek.  There is so much more to come!  -Michele

3 days, 2 photographers and one hell of a good time in Kansas City, MO

Exploring Kansas City, MO

with Elizabeth Ladean Photography

Of my 37 years on this planet only two people have had the ability to make me laugh so hard that bladder control becomes compromised, my husband and my cousin Holly… until now.  Enter Beth Powell, or, Elizabeth Ladean as her clients and the online world affectionately know her.

Five years ago I received an e-mail from one of Mark’s childhood friends.  His wife Beth, whom I’d only met once, was starting a photography business and he wanted to know if I’d be willing to answer some questions to help her get off on the right foot.  It all started with lengthy, detailed and formal Q&A e-mails that grew in to helpful texts then humorous texts followed by an annual short but sweet in person visit when Wes & Beth would come out to Colorado.  What began as mentor and mentee evolved to respected colleagues and now, to my delight, the best of friends.

In the last couple of years, Beth’s business has blown up just as I suspected it would.  Her devotion to her craft relit a fire in me and my own business at a time when the burn out was palpable.  She continually inspires me to push myself to be a better photographer and has reminded me of all the things I know about this business that have simply become second nature to me.

With Beth in Kansas City and I in Colorado, our friendship has been primarily text and e-mail based.  So earlier this summer, on a bit of a whim, I booked a flight to KC.  It didn’t matter that it was the middle of wedding season and traveling meant getting behind in my workload, it didn’t matter that I could only stay for 2.5 days, all that mattered was that I finally got some face-to-face time with one of my favorite people in the world.

I fully expected to have a great time but I never would have predicted that we would laugh until we cried (numerous times), talk until we lost our voices and connect on even more levels than we already had.  We explored Kansas City, photographed the sites and each other, jumped in puddles, played in the rain, ate tons of Mexican food and generally relished being two creative professionals that love exploring and documenting it all along the way.

What you’re about to see are A LOT of photos of me, something I wouldn’t typically share.  In fact, only one other time in my life have I spent so much time in front of the camera and that was for my senior portraits.  But, I learned something from spending so much time in front of the camera that week…it feels good, REALLY REALLY GOOD, to let your guard down, to play, to be silly and to feel pretty.  This experience reminded me that I hope I’m able to do the same for every client that steps in front of my camera.

Everyone should be so lucky to laugh as hard as we did during our visit.  To laugh so hard that you nearly BUT DON’T ACTUALLY pee your pants : )

My Kansas City tour began with stops at some of Beth’s favorite wedding venues.  Why did I absolutely love this?  Because these are places I’ve seen on social media and Beth’s blog for years.  Seeing them in real life, seeing the beauty and the unique challenges that Beth works with was such a treat.  We love comparing the differences between our two regions and wedding markets as the Midwest and the mountains are two very different beasts.  Fun fact: One weekend in May I texted Beth that an intense hail storm and near freezing temps made our wedding that weekend a challenge, she replied that she had shot a wedding in a barn with no a/c and it was 100 degrees out.

From there Beth took me to roam the streets of Weston, MO.  Just like me, Beth loves a good rural American town with old-fashioned roots and small town charm.  We strolled around town for hours taking photos, jumping in puddles, laughing hysterically and generally living life like no one was watching…though I think a few people might have been watching and wondering what the heck we were up to.

Beth set her sights on this little puddle and was determined to get the perfect puddle jumping shot.  Between my timing being off by 1/1000 of a second and her too-focused expression, we struggled to nail it.  But the outtakes and the laughter that ensued made it all worth it.  I will forever remember Weston, MO as Puddle Town.

The next day we headed downtown to explore the city.  I love a good mural and Beth delivered by starting off our downtown tour with a stop at this awesome wall, a photographer’s dream.

The laughter and expressions that result from trying to get THE SHOT, those are always my favorites.

Then it was on to Loose Park, another spot I recognized right away from Beth’s blog and Instagram.  This was also the point where I began to get a real taste for the humidity of the Midwest which is absolutely nothing like the heat of the AZ desert that I grew up in.

At this point my ability to remain serious in front of the camera was fading.  And besides, the below photo is a far better representation of my personality anyhow : )

Sometimes I look back at photos and can’t help but wonder what in the world was said to get these types of reactions.  Whatever it was, it was perfect because the below sequence is so good.

Our last stop downtown was River Market.  First on the agenda was FOOD.  Beth & I have a lot in common but more than anything may be the fact that we are first and foremost motivated by food, good food.  With that, I knew I wouldn’t go hungry on this trip which was quite comforting for a girl that’s used to having food and snacks with her at all times.  We ate at the Opera House, savored the most delicious macaroons then finished off our tour of downtown with a little walkabout and a few more photos.

That afternoon we got back to Beth’s house and realized there was one vital task that needed to be accomplished before I flew back to Colorado that evening…get a photo of the two of us together.  And then, total chaos ensued.  Leave it to two professional photographers to struggle with getting an in focus shot using a tripod and remote.  That simple fact left us in a uncontrollable fit of laughter.  Only Beth & I may really see the humor in the photos below, who knows, but these will forever make me laugh out loud.

Beth, what can I say, you’re one of the coolest people I know.  Five years ago I never would have guessed we would be the friends we are today and I couldn’t be more grateful for it.  My life just wouldn’t be the same without your wicked sense of humor and your huge heart.  I can’t wait to see where we meet in 2019!

Keystone Wedding @ Timber Ridge: Meghan & Matt

Meghan & Matt

Timber Ridge Wedding | Keystone, Colorado

What can I say?  I am completely smitten by Meghan & Matt.  From the moment we met last year at their engagement photo shoot where we talked and laughed and talked and laughed some more, I have been anxiously awaiting their Keystone wedding.  Never in my 14 years photographing weddings have I met a family as kind, loving and joyful as theirs…and that’s saying A LOT because I’ve seen a lot of love over the years.  To be so enthusiastically greeted by the Mother & Father of the bride the moment I showed up just melted my heart from the start.  I tend to absorb the energy of every wedding I attend and use that to create the best work I know how.  What Meghan & Matt and their families gave us to work with was nothing but love.  With that I sincerely hope they are able to look at their photos from now until eternity and see the remarkable bond that they all share.

Meghan & Matt-
The words “thank you” hardly feel like enough.  I am over-the-moon with gratitude that you found us and that we were the ones to freeze such a perfect moment in time.  May your marriage be as beautiful as the day you wed.
-Michele

Alexis & Brock’s Edwards Wedding

Alexis & Brock

Edwards, Colorado Wedding

Alexis & Brock wed last Saturday on a perfect Colorado day.  The setting for their nuptials was the Groom’s family’s gorgeous private estate in Edwards.  There’s nothing quite like having a little slice of Colorado all to yourselves to celebrate your love with your nearest and dearest friends and family.  Quick passing showers and big, white puffy clouds only added to the beauty of their day.  Following their ceremony, their reception commenced at Splendido in Beaver Creek.  Here’s a little sneak peek at Alexis & Brock’s quintessential Colorado wedding day!

Alexis & Brock, thank you for the honor of documenting your wedding day!  It was absolutely gorgeous and I’m just thrilled Mark & I were the ones to capture it for you.  -Michele

Kate & Charlie’s Beaver Creek Wedding {Black & White}

Kate & Charlie: Part Two

Beaver Creek Chapel & Ritz Carlton Bachelor Gulch Wedding

I love black & white photography, sometimes so much so that I can’t help but dedicate a post solely to this classic style.  During post-production, it’s usually quite obvious to me if a photo is meant to be color or black & white.  Whether it be that the lighting conditions weren’t ideal or the color elements are distracting from the emotion, black & white has a purpose and a soft-spot in my heart.  Kate & Charlie remind me of a classic Hollywood couple which might be why I felt as thought the classic look of black & white suited them perfectly.  Here’s a look at all the black & white highlights from their stunning Beaver Creek wedding…

Kate & Charlie’s Beaver Creek Wedding {Color}

Kate & Charlie: Part One

Beaver Creek Chapel & Ritz Carlton Bachelor Gulch Wedding

I’d never met Kate & Charlie until stepping on to the shuttle that would take us all to their rehearsal dinner at Beano’s Cabin.  The energy that radiated from the couple and wedding party as I stepped inside the bus was palpable.  I knew immediately that this was a group of people ecstatic to be celebrating the love story of a remarkable couple.  The celebration began that night at the rehearsal dinner and carried through the entire next day.  Kate was radiant and Charlie smitten by his bride.  True, life-long love is a gift, one that Kate & Charlie had obviously been blessed with.  As their first day of marriage came to a close, I witnessed one of the most electrifying send-offs I’ve ever seen.  Kate & Charlie departed The Ritz Carlton among tossed rose petals and a phenomenal serenade performed by all their guests.  These two have a lot of love in their life and their celebration was nothing short of an honor to document.

Kate & Charlie, your kindness and graciousness is humbling.  Your love of life and one another, contagious.  Thank you for the honor of being a part of your love story.  May your marriage be as beautiful as the day you wed. -Michele

Now on to just a few of the highlights from this flawless day!

Beaver Creek Wedding @ Beano’s Cabin: Angie & Chris

Angie & Chris

Beano's Cabin Wedding | Beaver Creek, Colorado

Oh Beano’s Cabin…this incredible Colorado wedding destination stole my heart years ago when I first laid eyes on it and it always leaves me wanting to come back for more.  The way it’s nestled in to the slopes, surrounded by aspens and distant mountain views and the food…oh my lord, the food.  As a vendor, you never really know what you’re going to get served at a wedding but such is not the case at Beano’s.  The food is always, ALWAYS the best I’ve ever had at a wedding.  Chris & Angie’s decision to wed at Beano’s was enough to win me over but the icing on the cake was that these two were absolutely awesome to work with.  I’ve never witnessed a First Look as emotional as theirs.  A moment so rich with love it was obvious that these two are meant for one another.  Now on to a little photo recap of this beautiful Beano’s Cabin wedding!

Angie & Chris, thank you so much for trusting us with your love story!  We are so thrilled we got to know you and be a part of such an amazing day! -Michele

Kelsey & Jonathan’s Breckenridge Wedding @ Ten Mile Station

KELSEY & JONATHAN

Ten Mile Station Wedding | Breckenridge, Colorado

Nearly a year and a half ago I met Kelsey & Jonathan for the first time at a bar in Frisco.  We spoke for over an hour about all things marriage,  weddings, Colorado, photography and more and by the time we parted ways I had my hopes WAY up that they would book us to photograph their wedding this year.  Shortly after we met, to my sheer delight, they signed a contract with us and I’ve been anxiously awaiting their wedding ever since.  Finally, last weekend, they celebrated their first day of marriage at Ten Mile Station in Breckenridge and it was everything I imagined it would be and more.  As doctors, it astonished me that they found the time to write their own vows and learn a choreographed first dance, among many other incredibly personal touches that made their wedding day uniquely theirs.  In my fourteen years photographing weddings, I have never heard vows as deeply touchy and personal as Kelsey & Johathan’s and for that I will always remember their wedding day fondly.

Kelsey & Jonathan, the love you share makes my heart smile.  I could not be more honored that Mark & I were the ones to document the start of what I have no doubt will be a lifelong union.  Thank you both for being you!  -Michele

Melissa & Anthony’s Vail Wedding @ Donovan Pavilion

MELISSA & ANTHONY

Donovan Pavilion Wedding | Vail, Colorado

Last Friday Melissa & Anthony wed on perfect summer day in Vail.  Melissa chose two stunning locations for pre-ceremony photos, the top of Vail Mountain and Betty Ford Gardens.  Thanks to some fierce winds, we didn’t hang out on the mountain for long but the scenic gondola ride and never-ending mountain views from the summit made it worth the trip nonetheless.  Wind and the bright mid-day sun are two of the most difficult challenges we face as mountain photographers but Betty Ford Gardens was the perfect hideaway from both.  Once photos wrapped it was on to Donovan Pavilion for Melissa & Anthony’s ceremony and reception.  Donovan is the perfect hideout in this otherwise busy mountain town and provided a gorgeous setting to celebrate this beautiful couple!

Melissa & Anthony, thank you for the opportunity to document your wedding day!  It was nothing short of perfect! -Michele

Colorado Engagement Photos: Danielle & Tyler

DANIELLE & TYLER

Silverthorne, Colorado Engagement Photos

Not many guys are pumped to have their photos taken, in fact most are not.  However, when you hear that the particular groom you’re about to meet proposed to his bride during a hot air balloon high over the Rocky Mountains, it’s safe to say that even if he’s not in to having his photo taken, he’s in to doing whatever he can to make his girl happy.  That at least was my hope going in to Danielle & Tyler’s photo shoot and I was spot on.  Next year Danielle & Tyler will wed in their hometown in Kansas but for their engagement photos, Danielle wanted to return to the Rocky Mountains they love so much; and I’m so glad they did.  They were a joy to photograph, as you’ll see in the photos below and are exactly the kind of kind-hearted souls I love meeting and creating beautiful work for.

Danielle & Tyler, I had so much fun spending the afternoon with you.  I hope these photos will always remind you of Colorado and the beginning of your lives together!

Here’s a look at Danielle & Tyler’s Colorado engagement photos…

Jessica & Steve’s Colorado Ranch Wedding @ Devil’s Thumb

Jessica & Steve

Devil's Thumb Ranch | Tabernash, Colorado

When I think of a quintessential Colorado mountain wedding, I picture either an expansive ranch or far-reaching mountain top, bright blue skies, white puffy clouds and panoramic views for days.  It’s neither hot, nor cold and everywhere I turn are happy people soaking up the dreamy surroundings.  This is exactly the day that Jessica & Steve were gifted with.  It makes my heart smile when our couples and their guests get to experience the very best of Colorado because when the mountains are good to us it’s pure magic.

Congratulations to one of the sweetest couples around!  Now on to the good stuff!  Here are some of the highlights from Jessica & Steve’s Devil’s Thumb Ranch wedding…

You’ve got to hand it to a guest that has the motivation and ability to relocate the horses in the pasture to be within closer proximity to the ceremony : )

I think one of my favorite moments of the day was when this adorable little ring bearer spotted his mom as he was walking down the aisle and lit up and said “OH HEY MOM!”

Carolyn & Taylor’s Breckenridge Wedding

Carolyn & Taylor

Ten Mile Station | Breckenridge, Colorado

Last weekend Carolyn & Taylor tied the knot at Ten Mile Station in Breckenridge.  May is always hit or miss in the mountains with snow being quite typical, so the abundant sunshine that stuck around all day was a beautiful thing.

While I absolutely love dreamy decor as much as the next girl, Carolyn & Taylor’s choice to forego ceremony florals proves what I’ve been saying about this venue for years…the setting itself is so stunning that no dressing up is needed.

Ten Mile Station never gets old and Carolyn & Taylor’s wedding was one more picture-perfect celebration for the books.  Congrats to this beautiful couple!  Here’s a peek at their Breckenridge wedding…

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.
