ann & jason. an aspen, colorado mountain wedding photographer

ann and jason had a perfect aspen, colorado mountain wedding. i was so lucky to be a small part of their day! jason began his day by getting ready at the st. regis aspen resort, and ann got ready at the little nell - both incredible venues! then everyone headed to the top of aspen mountain for the big event.

the weather on the wedding deck was incredible! we had nothing but blue skies and perfect clouds for the ceremony, and the sun shone beautifully for all of the family and wedding party portraits. the biggest surprise of the day was when a little fox decided to make an appearance! he sat patiently on a hill for at least 5 minutes while i {and many guests} took his photo. we even kept seeing him hanging around the wedding deck throughout the night!

ann and jason, i hope your photos help you relive your aspen, colorado mountain wedding! you were a dream to work with, and i am so blessed to call you my friends!

katharine & jason. v3 breckenridge wedding photographer

i am so excited to share katharine and jason’s v3 breckenridge wedding! even though we’ve been in colorado over four years, mountain weddings are still such a thrill for me, and katharine and jason chose one of my favorite venues. like so many other weddings this year, rain tried to threaten their day, but thankfully the clouds parted just before the ceremony! enough of my babbling… enjoy the photos!

kristin & jeff. a four seasons denver wedding

kristin and jeff had the most amazing four seasons denver wedding! i’m so used to photographing gorgeous weddings in mountain settings that it was such a welcome change to capture kristin and jeff’s wedding day in a classy, urban setting. it is also such a blessing when i am able to work with amazing vendors like the four seasons denverwe tie the knots and cori cook floral design. even when there was a threat of rain just before the ceremony, cammye and liz had everything under control and running smoothly.

“first looks” have also become fairly common {i had one 11 years ago, and it was such a great time to spend alone with my groom!}. on the other hand, even though i love first looks, it is also so special when grooms get to see their brides for the first time as they walk down the aisle. jeff had such a sweet expression as he waited for his bride, and their excitement after they said their vows was contagious! even their adorable daughter, harper, was clapping as they walked back down the aisle together!

kristin and jeff, thank you for having me along as a small part of your incredible wedding day! many wishes for a long and blissful marriage!

mary & ryan. silverthorne, colorado wedding photographer

i’m so excited to share some of my favorite photos from mary and ryan’s silverthorne, colorado wedding! their entire day ran seamlessly, and although the rain clouds decided to open up, it happened during the indoor wedding ceremony – perfect timing!

i love when couples pepper in meaningful details during their day, and mary and ryan did a great job of this! you’ll notice that mary changed into a different dress before she walked down the aisle, and she changed into the same dress her mother wore when she got married in 1967! both of her dresses were incredibly classy, and the look on her father’s face was priceless when mary revealed that she was wearing her mother’s dress! you’ll also notice that the bible ryan carried with him down the aisle was originally given to his then 16 year old grandfather, and signed by his great grandparents – so sweet!…and, mary’s dad made all of the flower boxes found on the reception tables!

i also can’t help but point out that ryan wore a custom tailored suit from the bespoke edge in fort collins. grooms, please take a note from ryan and buy a custom tailored suit for your wedding day! rented suits and tuxes just can’t compete with the look of a fitted suit, and you’ll even get to wear it again and again.
