Our Relaxed ApproachFrom the moment you step in to your dress to your first dance as husband and wife, see how we go about making beautiful photographs while providing a fun, stress-free photography experience...
The anticipation leading up to the ceremony makes for some great photo ops, however, there’s no need to worry about a camera being in your face all morning long. We like about one hour to photograph details and you getting ready. While I photograph you getting dressed, my husband Mark will be with your fiance capturing some casual moments of him and his guys relaxing before the ceremony.
If you’ve decided to wait until you walk down the aisle to see your Groom for the first time, no sweat, we can still get some photos out of the way before the ceremony without the two of you crossing paths. While Mark gets some great portraits of the guys, I’m doing the same with you and the girls as well as getting a few quick shots with your parents. This makes for less time spent on photos after the ceremony and more time celebrating!
He can create a great portrait on the fly, like the one above of the Groom during his ceremony processional.
If you’ve decided to see each other before the ceremony, we’ll capture your First Look, then give the two of you a moment to take it all in.
We’ll place you in a beautiful setting then step back and let the two of you enjoy the moment.
If photography is just as important to you as spending time with your guests, seeing your fiance prior to your ceremony is a great way to do both. We can complete all your formal photographs prior to the ceremony leaving cocktail hour yours to enjoy.
We’ll complete photos of you before your guests arrive so that you may get tucked away. Then we’ll capture some candid moments of your guests arriving as well as a few ceremony details.
Once the ceremony begins we go in to stealth mode. We capture all the moments of your ceremony while being as respectful and unobtrusive as possible.
While Mark stays near the altar, using a long lens so there is no need to get too close, I remain at the end of the aisle. He’ll get closer photographs of all the tears, laughter and emotion while I get wider shots including your guests and the incredible setting. Our ability to be in two places at once is priceless. Not a moment is missed.
If you and your husband did not see each other prior to the ceremony, we’ll spend 15-20 minutes immediately afterwards to capture some relaxed portraits of the two of you in a beautiful setting.
Once we’ve completed your formal photographs, we aim to go unnoticed. We’ll never stage anything, we’ll never ask you to “pretend” to cut your cake. Your wedding is a real life event, not a movie set. We’re there to tell your story not stage it.
We are just in awe of what you were able to capture – things we really didn’t even know were happening.Laura
The day goes by so fast, this is a nice excuse to take advantage of the beautiful light and spend a quiet moment with your husband.
We LOVE Colorado. It’s probably safe to assume that you do too. We’re always certain to capture the magnificent setting that Colorado offers. We think the details of the surroundings (the mountains, trees, meadows) are just as important as the centerpieces and bouquets.
Toasts always make for great candids of you and your loved ones.
There’s nothing quite like the relationship between a daughter and her father. Documenting this bond is one Michele’s favorite elements of a wedding day.
After you’ve had your first dance, you’ve cut the cake and toasts have been made, we like to cover about 30 minutes to an hour of dancing. It’s rarely necessary for us to stay until the very end of the night but that’s entirely up to you.
If your ceremony and reception are at the same location, 7-8 hours of photography coverage is typically the perfect amount of time for us to start with some getting ready photos and end with coverage of the party towards the end of the night. We’ll of course discuss your timeline with you in detail to be sure you get all the photography coverage you desire.
