There’s no other place in Colorado quite like Saddle Ridge. It’s a little deceiving too because when you first walk up to the door it just looks like every other building in Beaver Creek. Step inside and feel as though you’ve gone back in time. Back to the wild, wild west because Saddle Ridge is home to the largest collection of American western antique furnishings and artifacts outside of a museum. Add to that, floor to ceiling windows with views of the mountains plus a back patio set among an incredible aspen grove. Every time we’re at Saddle Ridge I feel like I never stop for one second because there is just so much beauty to capture. Here is a little taste of what Saddle Ridge is all about… Continue reading ‘Venues We Love: Saddle Ridge in Beaver Creek’
As is true in any profession, some people are really good at what they do and others not so much. We’ve seen the good, bad and the ugly when it comes to wedding vendors (mostly good, I’d like to note) but nothing directly affects our work more than the videographer. And vice versa. Photographers and videographers must work seemlessly together in order to do their best work. If you’ve hired a photographer like us that has a very unobtrusive approach and likes to let everything happen naturally and organically then it doesn’t make much sense to hire a videographer that has the opposite approach and wants to stage your day from start to finish to see that every move you make is perfect. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not knocking that approach but the two don’t mesh together very well. Trust me, I know from experience. Vendors should always be working together to see that your wedding day is flawless and a good photographer/videographer combo will do just that.
When we first met Kyle & Erica, a husband and wife team just like us, we were absolutely delighted at their skill, professionalism and approach which is much like ours. We truly worked together to see that we all could create the best possible product for our client. Before the wedding was even over I knew that I’d be going out of my way to recommend these two. Their talent is remarkable. Not to mention, they’re just cool people that you’ll enjoy being around which is extremely important when it comes to choosing your photographer and videographer since we will be with you the entire day! If you’re looking for the perfect videographer or are on the fence about hiring one at all, head over to www.khodgefilms.com. I promise you, you’ll be glad you did!
Visit Lake Havasu City in December (like we do) and you’re considered a snowbird. Especially when you have Colorado plates. Return in March (like we just did) and you’re considered a spring breaker. Especially when you have glowing white skin and Colorado plates. I could care less what the label is, I’m just grateful to have a warm place to go when I can not longer tolerate this ice box that I live in. Don’t get me wrong, I love Colorado, but this winter has been brutal. I often wonder how I went from living in the hottest place in the country, that’s you Havasu, to what has arguably been the coldest place in the country the last few months. I’ve been well-informed this year (Thanks Dad) every time our little town earned the title of record low, which was more times than I’d like to recall. The first opportunity we got, we headed south to defrost. We enjoyed nothing but good times with family, took a few scenic flights here and there and explored some of Arizona’s expansive BLM land.
