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…

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…

Devil’s Thumb Ranch Wedding: Liz & Matt

Liz & Matt

Devil's Thumb Ranch | Tabernash, Colorado

Everyone should be so lucky to experience the kind of love Liz & Matt share.  They share an unbreakable bond, a kind of love that will only grow stronger with every passing year.  Their wedding last weekend at Devil’s Thumb Ranch could not have been a more perfect way for us to kick of the 2018 season.  When your job is to document such joyous people, you kind of feel like you’ve won at life.  I’m not sure how we got so lucky to be the ones to tell their love story, but I couldn’t be happier that Liz & Matt found us and chose us to do so.  Congratulations to the newlyweds!

May your marriage be as beautiful as the day you wed, 
-Michele

Chasing big dreams and ringing in a new era!

We have some incredibly exciting news to share!  After a year of blood, sweat and tears, we’re finally bringing to fruition one our most ambitious dreams yet!  That dream being to make aviation a much greater part of our lives.  Mark was offered the most incredible job, an opportunity so perfect I cried the moment he told me.  He’s recently begun working as an aviation mechanic in Idaho for the most phenomenal company and will soon become a flight instructor.  The aviation community holds a special place in both our hearts, but for Mark it’s his calling…just as photography is mine.  We’re now going to be splitting our time between Colorado and Idaho, a dream in itself for this wandering spirit of mine.  This summer will be Mark’s last season photographing weddings.  We had a damn good run as business partners for the last 14 years but if there’s anything I truly love in life, it’s changing things up and seeing where new opportunities might lead!

Mark’s new gig started last week with helping relocate two planes from San Francisco to Phoenix to Idaho.

What does that mean for the future of IN Photography?

Well…not a whole lot will change actually!  For the last couple of years we’ve been working on phasing Mark out of the business.  He knew he was ready to pursue another career and so we needed to begin freeing up his time in order to act on any possible opportunities.  While Mark will still be shooting alongside me this summer, that is the last aspect of the business that he has yet to step away from.  Starting next year, this little business that we’ve taken from childhood dream to thriving career over the course of the last 14 years will be all mine.  I feel beyond blessed that not only do I get to keep this business going, but I have a renewed sense of excitement to make it better than it’s ever been.  This year I’ll begin the search for the perfect photographer to join me for the 2019 season.  With that, as well as the experience I have from photographing close to 400 weddings over the years,  I plan on continuing to deliver the same product and experience that IN always has.

The most wonderful aspect of this change, and why I see this business just getting better, is that for the first time ever we’ll be a dual-income family.  With that, I aim to commission around 14 Colorado weddings rather than 25-30.  This opportunity giving me more time to deliver the absolute best experience for my couples that I can.

 

Will I keep shooting weddings in Colorado?

YES!  While Mark’s job will primarily take place in Idaho, we’ll be splitting our time between Colorado and Idaho with the bulk of the summer being spent in Colorado.  I may not be a skier, I may hate the cold but if there is one thing I am truly, deeply, madly in love with (besides my husband) it’s summer in Colorado.

Summer + Colorado + photography + weddings = my bliss.

Bookings for the 2019 season have already begun and I cannot wait to meet the 14 couples whose love stories I’ll have the honor of documenting next summer.  Until then…stay tuned for all the beauty that’s about to unfold this season!  It all starts in two weeks!!!

 

Flying Diamond Ranch Wedding Photos: Kathryn & Ryan

Flying Diamond Ranch is one of those quintessential Colorado wedding venues.  From towering aspen groves to sprawling meadows and panoramic views of the Yampa Valley, this Steamboat Springs ranch has it all and is a photographer’s dream.  We could not have been more excited for our first wedding at this new venue.  Kathryn & Ryan first exchanged vows in downtown Steamboat at Holy Name Catholic Church.  Following their ceremony was a picture-perfect reception and celebration at Flying Diamond.  Here’s a peek at Kathryn & Ryan’s drop-dead gorgeous summer wedding in Steamboat…

2017 Highlights: Colorado Weddings

2017 Highlights

Colorado Wedding Photography

This is it, the final post of 2017!  Trust me when I say, I’ve saved the best for last.  What you’re about to see are over 200 of some of my favorite photos from the 2017 Colorado wedding season.  200 may seem like a lot but with a selection of over 15,000 photos to choose from, it was the best I could do!  I honestly don’t think I’d wrapped my head around all the beauty of this year until prepping this post and looking thru all 27 weddings side by side.  WOW.  I’m practically speechless for what an incredible year it was.  When I look thru these photos I’m overwhelmed with gratitude for our amazing clients, all our vendor friends and the many spectacular venues that now, 13 years in to this career, feel like second homes to us.

What you’re about to see is a perfect representation of the work we strive to deliver to each and every one of our couples.  A blend of beautiful portraits, heart-warming candids and gorgeous details.  A collection of photographs to bring our clients joy for a lifetime.  Here’s a glimpse at our year in weddings!  (oh…and be sure to check out the Black & White highlights here…I love b&w so much, I couldn’t help but do a separate post)

2017 Highlights: Colorado Weddings | Black & White

2017 Headlights: Black & White

Colorado Wedding Photography

Black & white photography holds a special place in my heart.  Maybe it’s because I love that it strips a photograph of all distractions and takes you straight to the heart of the emotions captured.  Maybe it’s because it makes me nostalgic for the days I’d lock myself away in the tiny bathroom turned darkroom of my first apartment, developing black & white photos.  Either way, I love the classic, timeless look of a black & white photograph.  Not every photo is meant to be black & white, but the ones that are, I can’t imagine them any other way.  With that, I hope you’ll enjoy my favorite post of the year, my favorite black & white photos from 2017…

Sapphire Point Elopement: Amanda & Randall

Weather in the middle of October can bring anything in the Colorado Rockies.  When Amanda told me she was excited for the beauty of the fall color (they were coming from Texas), I had to break the news that the fall color would be long gone and the mountains would likely be covered in fresh snow.  Oh, and also that it would be cold, quite cold for Texans.  Yet, October 18th rolled around and we were gifted with one of those rare sunny, sixty degree October days.  In other words, it could not have been more perfect.  Amanda & Randall exchanged vows at Sapphire Point overlooking Lake Dillon and the Ten Mile range, reminding me, yet again, that elopements are the bees knees.  I can’t think of a better way to spend a Wednesday afternoon.  Here are just a few of my favorite photos from our hour together that gorgeous afternoon!

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.
