This day could not have been more perfect.  While there was still snow on the ground from an earlier snow fall during the week it was typical Colorado and very warm out for their session.  YAY for that.   One of my favorite things about this session was that Adam and Jordan brought their fur babies for a few photos.  Its always so fun to see the way dogs and their human’s act.  Haha.  While the bigger one was still a puppy (a BIG puppy) the other one was so attached to Jordan and did not need to be on a leash.  SO cute.

Jordan and Adam could not have been more easy to hang out with.  I loved how naturally intimate these two are.  Whether it was the way they would smile at each other, or just reach out and grab each others hands…so adorable.  And not only that, it shows me just how much these two care about each other.   We hiked and explored a bit of Boulder for these sessions and I can not wait to share a few of my favorites.

    Sonja - I’m such a sucker for any session with doggies! What a beautiful setting, and what sweet photos of this couple and their pups!ReplyCancel

Pretty sure if I had soul clients…these ones would be it.  Haha.  Seriously, I felt like we clicked so well from our first facetime meeting.  When I met up with them at their engagement session..Maegan gave me a big hug and said she felt we were friends all ready.  I couldn’t agree more.  I love their sense of humor and the way they are so comfortable with each other.  Not to mention they are both incredibly stunning.  But their personalities…for me that was what made this couple so beautiful.  I loved watching Eric help Maegan.  Or the way he would simply make her laugh.   Honestly, I haven’t laughed as much as I have with this couple.

 This session…its def. a personal favorite of mine for 2016…not only because of how epic and gorgeous Mt. Falcon is…but because of Eric and Maegan.   I am looking forward to their beautiful wedding next summer.  For now, here are a few of my favorites from their session.

I so love getting to play the role of 2nd shooter.  WAIT…what did I just say?!  Haha…don’t get me wrong I absolutely adore being the lead photographer for my business.  But getting to play more of an observer roll especially on a wedding day is pretty amazing.  Add in that I get to watch my sister Jen with her clients and she is not only  extremely talented at what she does but understanding what they need before they even have to ask….ah, that is what I call crazy talent.    And its simply beautiful for me to observe.   There are a few photos in this post that show Heather laughing at something Jen is saying…and its quite possibly one of my favorites from the wedding because it shows that when we come in and photograph our clients they have fun and can relax and be themselves.  Anyway, this is just a preview post…but it was such a breath taking wedding that I could not resist sharing a few favorites that I photographed for Heather and Anthony’s gorgeous Arizona Wedding.  I can not wait to share more.  Also, if you’d like to see what I’ve shared on FB click on this link:

Silverthorne Town Pavillion is surrounded by beautiful mountains and a gorgeous creek that runs along the back of the venue.  A trail where you can walk along side it surrounded by big pine trees and aspens.  At the time of this wedding for Amanda and Cory it was holding on to fall in just a few places.  I loved the way the leaves scattered across the creek.  So beautiful and brilliant in color as the sun hit it.  Jen and I had arrived early to walk around and get our thoughts for the day and Amanda was in the parking lot and saw us and gave me a big hug.   She has a smile that is simply impossible not to smile back.  It captures her whole face and her eyes light up…beautiful.  Amanda and Cory are originally from Chicago (I’m SURE they are freaking out about the Cubs winning:)) and found me through google.  Thank you Google 😉 Jen and I immediately felt right at home with this sweet couple as we grew up in Illinois.

This was a destination wedding for them.  But many of their friends and family live in Colorado so it made perfect sense for them to get married in the mountains.  I loved that it was a simple and classic wedding…so true to Amanda and Cory’s nature.  The friends and family that gathered around them to watch and support them sharing their vows…that was what this day was about.  I loved that Amanda and Cory’s emotion was so obvious in their expressions with how they laughed and loved on each other through out the day.   And probably one of my favorite things about this couple is that they included their fur baby Cheif.  :)He’s blind and absolutely ADORES Amanda and Cory.  They would call for him and he would find them by the sound of their voice.  SO adorable.  I probably could have photographed him the whole time haha.

So much to love about this wedding.  And I’m beyond excited to share a few of my favorites.  I’ve shared a few more over on my facebook page if you’d like to see it click on this link:

The Air Force Chapel is simply epic.  You walk in…and you literally can’t help but pause and take in the beautiful architecture and stain glass windows.  Its so unique and amazing.  If you ever get the chance to visit…its so worth it.   Alex and Mandy,  such a beautiful couple together.  The way they cared for each other…not only on their wedding day but at their engagement session…that is why I love what I do.   Alex would help Mandy with her dress or smile and laugh with her.  Mandy would hug Alex just a little tighter.  Or when she was concerned with the rain Alex seemed to know just what to say to help her smile again.  And I kind of think that is what brought the sun out for their bridal portraits.  <3  What a stunning couple they make.   One of my favorite memories of their day was watching Mandy’s bridesmaids laugh and run through the light rain…they knew it was going to be special for Mandy and did not complain at all.  Maybe it was that that brought out the sun too.  Either way, this wedding was beautiful and so heartfelt.  From the gorgeous details, stunning floral work by Twigs and Posies, happy tears from Mandy’s Mom or the easy laughter all through out the day.  I loved every minute of this couples wedding and I can’t wait to share more of it here.

I’ve also posted to my facebook page should you want to see a few more of this lovely Air Force Chapel Wedding.
