Arrowhead Golf Course Wedding

Drew and Adam’s beautiful Arrowhead Golf Course Wedding was one for the books!  The heavy crazy intense rain could not stop this couple or their friends and family from gathering around outside and witnessing this sweet couple from sharing their vows.  One of the guests from the wedding followed me and Jen around with an umbrella so we could continue capturing Drew and Adam’s vows without the rain getting all over our gear.  The bright pops of pink and navy blue all through out the reception and ceremony site stood out against the gorgeous mountain backdrop at the Arrowhead Golf Course.   Drew and Adam had a wine ceremony during their vows and it was so special to see this couple not hold back on their emotions.  I loved watching the guests laugh and cry right along with Drew and Adam.  For Drew and Adam’s portraits their bridal party grabbed the umbrellas and laughed at all the crazy rain but I adored their obvious happiness.  And umbrellas…I don’t often get to shoot with them.  It added such a fun charming element to their wedding photos.  Such an epic day!  I shared more on my facebook page if you’d like to head on over there here is a link:

Colorado Springs Engagement Photographer

I so enjoyed spending the afternoon with Lara and Eric.  After their engagement session the hubs met me and we all went to dinner to get to know each other a little better.  Its not often that I have the opportunity to do that.  And I loved that.  I loved getting to see Eric and Lara in an environment outside of having a camera on them haha.  That can make anyone feel nervous.  That was not the case with these two.  I loved how transparent they were with each other.  Its completely obvious to everyone around them how much they love each other.  I happen to also be friends with them on facebook and they regularly share just how special the other is to them.  I love that.  It brings a special and beautiful relationship to be able to photograph that naturally so others can see.   Not only are they completely charming as a couple but I loved how much they made me laugh.  Eric and Lara are both very sarcastic and have such a funny sense of humor.  We were all laughing so much through out the day.  I’d love to share a few of my favorites from their engagement but I’ve also shared a few more on my facebook page.

Thank you so much again Lara and Eric!  I can’t wait for your beautiful wedding in the spring!

Planet Bluegrass Wedding

When I get to the point of blogging a wedding its a moment where I’m a bit sad to let it go.  But I adore reliving them as I share a bit of the couples story.  And let me tell you this Planet Bluegrass Wedding was epic.  The location itself is stunning.  The walls that surround this venue, that is also set up to hold concerts through out the year, is so unique and beautiful.   A creek, river at times lol, runs on along the back of it and I was told by Mike he’d often set up his hammock during concerts on the other side.  It sounds like a perfect way to spend a summer night.   There were a lot of happy moments that its kind of hard to figure out where to start on this one.  I will say I think that Mike and Erica’s first look was one of my favorites I’ve ever photographed.   We were setting up Erica and she said hey Mike and he spun around and I’m like AHHHHHHHHHHHHH my camera.  Fortunately I grabbed and caught the spin.  He was SO excited to see her.  His expression was like Christmas morning for a kid and he reached out and hugged her so quickly.  Literally made me smile and laugh right a long with them.  That kind of happiness…it was the tone for the whole day.  I mean, the toasts that were shared had me laughing till tears streamed down my face.  I kid you not.  You’ll see from a few of the images how their friends had everyone laughing.  Gosh this was a fun crew to work with.  And the live band they had hired for the reception…The Fever.  WOW!  I was blown away by their charisma and ability to get the crowd off the seats and dancing all night long.  At the end of the night they had the crowd screaming one more song one more song.  They didn’t want them to quit.  Sign of a really good party for sure.

I simply can not wait to share this sweet and oh so beautiful couples wedding day.  I shared quite a few more on my facebook page and if you’d love to check them out head on over and click on my name it will link right to it.

    andrea - Ahhhhh Planet Bluegrass is one of my most favorite wedding venues in Colorado, so full of textures and sights and sounds!

Highlands Meadow Golf Course Wedding

Watching Danielle walk out from her friends house onto the golf course towards Si will forever be in my mind as such a sweet moment.  They shared their vows under a gorgeous cotton wood tree on a golf course that the two regularly spend time on.  Her parents have a home as well in this neighborhood and it was so special to see them have such a personal location for their vows.  I loved that they kept the ceremony to just their family and bridal party and had the reception with all their friends and extended family.  It was such a special day to see so many loved ones reach out and make Danielle and Si’s day a memorable one.    The Highlands Meadow Golf Course has a large red barn for their receptions for weddings.  And I have to say it was amazing with all the chandeliers and gorgeous draping inside.  It made for such an epic place for Danielle and Si and their guests to spend the night dancing.

And can we talk about Danielle and Si for a little bit?!?  Not only are they a gorgeous couple at first glance but they are gorgeous.  But they were incredibly gracious and generous with their guests and with me and Chelsea.  They wanted to make sure everyone was having an amazing time and had everything they needed.  It says so much about them and I loved that it was easy to see just how loved in return they were.  Such a fabulous day and I simply can not wait to share more of it.  I will share a few of my favorites here on my blog but if you’d like to see more head on over to my facebook page

YMCA of the Rockies Wedding

This was my first time photographing a wedding up at the YMCA of the Rockies…and lets just say my jaw fell open and I was thinking…how can this be my job?  Haha…just stunning looking at the Rocky Mountain National Park as a backdrop for Hannah and David’s beautiful wedding.  Views for miles everywhere.  Of course, like any Colorado Wedding, you get ALL the weather in less than 4 hours…especially in the mountains.  We had crazy wind before the ceremony, then half way through rain and wind…THEN the sun broke through and I did a happy dance thinking about doing their wedding portraits at sunset.  You get to go through all season quite often in a wedding day.  And I love how each Colorado Wedding brings about its own uniqueness.

One of my favorite trends in 2017…well, its just starting out but I’m beginning to see it more and more, is where the bridesmaids are given a color palette and then they choose a dress in that tone.  It allows your girls to have some creativity and it looks amazing to photograph!  Loved that Hannah and her bridesmaids chose to do that.  I’m hoping it stays for 2018 Weddings too.

During the ceremony up at the YMCA Rockies deck, Hannah and David’s son would often run up to them and say hi then run back to his grandma….ummmm, that was just crazy cute.   Haha.  I loved watching them love on him through out the day and you could see just how much this couple adores each other and their sweet family.  Such an incredible privilege and honor to photograph them.  I can’t wait to share a few of my favorites from their day.  If you’d like to see more head on over to my facebook page with this link

    Ashley - Yes!! I love when brides let their ladies pick their own dresses within a certain color palette. It’s so hard to find a universal dress that looks great on every body type AND allows all the bridesmaids to feel confident. I hope this trend sticks too!

    And this entire wedding is GORGEOUS! You did a beautiful job documenting their day! 😍ReplyCancel

    Lacey Fincher - The wedding photography you have taken at the YMCA Rockies location is pure magic! I agree completely that the bridesmaids dresses, being different, gives them their own flare, but keeping the dresses the same color shows their unity. This is represented so well in your wedding photography!ReplyCancel
