Emily & Jon Married at Sapphire Point : A Colorado Mountain Wedding

Emily and Jon traveled from their home in Nebraska all the way to Colorado to be married at Sapphire Point, overlooking beautiful Lake Dillon.  After a quiet ceremony under a perfect Colorado blue sky, we spent some time together making some memorable images.  A fun tradition Emily and Jon have had since they started dating is – whenever they go someplace special, they “jump” for the camera.  And jump they did!  Judging by the air time involved, it was easy to see these two have had plenty of practice!  Another fun and exciting hobby they have is sailing.  So, after finishing up at the point, we drove down to the marina on Lake Dillon where Emily had made prior arrangements with a local member of the marina to let us take some photos on their sailboat. Tons of fun!

So – when I ask what are you planning that will make your wedding day special and unique to you, this is what I’m taking about.:)

Eliza & Derik Denver Park Wedding

I had the rare opportunity to photograph Eliza and Derik a week prior to their wedding day. Due to restrictions on the actual wedding day, they elected to conduct their wedding portraits in advance.  This was great, because it was just us and Eliza’s mom, who came along to help out.  No pressure, no timelines, just a lot of fun!  Derik had not yet seen is beautiful bride in her wedding dress, so of course we started with a “1st look”, which is a fun non-directed sequence to break the ice and get us off and running. We then headed off to Cheesman Park in downtown Denver to shoot the rest of their session in the Pavilion located inside the park.  The Pavilion is public, but we were lucky and had the place to ourselves for most of the time. Here are just a few of the images from the session.

Suzanne & Aaron: Day-after session

Suzanne and Aaron traveled from North Carolina to be married on May 4th at the Cheyenne Mountain Resort in Colorado Springs.  Since we had only met one time prior to their wedding day, Suzanne and Aaron were unable to schedule a couple’s portrait session prior to their wedding date. No problem; we simply moved it to a “Day-after” session. This was so much fun because they elected to wear their wedding clothes!  And so it was, the next day Randy and I met Suzanne and Aaron in the resort lobby and we headed out on to the golf course for a session to remember!  Traveling by golf cart, we cruised around the golf course and found several locations to capture our newlyweds showcased against the Rockie Mountains.  Perfect!  The weather was not the greatest, but we braved the cold and wind just long enough to capture some awesome images.  Finally, we came back to warm up by the fire and, of course, more photos. :)  Here are some of my favorites!View full post »

Jennifer & James Married in Breckenridge!

Meet Jennifer and James, married on February 8, 2013 at a private residence in Breckenridge, CO.  Together with over 30 of their closest friends and family, they rented the entire house and enjoyed a week of skiing and celebration leading up to the wedding.  Since the gondola was only a couple of blocks from the house, this was pretty close to ski in/ski out. Nice! From the moment Randy and I arrived, everyone was very casual and laid back. No pressure, stress, hustle or bustle, just fun loving and happiness all around.  The mountains had been getting good snow all week – but not today! We were blessed with a beautiful sunny day with temps in the 30s. Of course we “toughed” it out for some fun outside photos.  Hey, if the girls and their sleeveless dressed can handle it, so can we!:)Congratulations to Jennifer and James; thanks for including us on your wedding day!View full post »

Jennifer & Dean Married in Estes Park!

Jenn and Dean were married in Estes Park at the Della Terra Mountain Chateau ;  a very beautiful venue nestled in the trees above the entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park. The wedding was set to a roaring 20′s theme, with decor that featured lots of bling, feathers and fedoras. Even the guests came dressed for the part.  Yep, it was pretty much a photographer’s dream! I was joined for the day once again by Randy Cupps, who always lends a talented eye and contagious smile. Thanks Jenn and Dean for including us on your awesome day!View full post »
