Brush Canyon Ranch

What an amazing venue to get married at.  I love that its run by a family and that they are unbelievable kind and gracious every time I’ve photographed the venue.  They have horse carriage rides for the bridal party and gave suggestions on good places to photograph the couple.  Just hands down a great place to get married.  Add in the gorgeous mountains, tall beautiful grass, aspens, wild flowers and a fun outdoor/indoor reception area and ceremony site…and well, lets just say the pictures are just a small glimpse at this beautiful place.   I loved how Angie and Chris had so many personal and fun details through out the reception.  From the quirky pictures in frames, to the stunning floral work by Southern Charm.  On a side note, I loved that she added in wildflowers to the bouquet on her way up to the site for Angie.  Creative and just lovely work!   This day was made so perfect by not only Angie and Chris’s vision by the way Marissa from Yibe Weddings and Events helped keep everything running smoothly and making sure the reception and ceremony looked just perfect.   One of my favorite moments was the wedding march.  I’ve never seen this before.  And everyone got up and walked around the whole site.  Smiling and laughing and really just a great beginning for the dance party.

This was a dream team day and I LOVE getting to relive this one through the blog and facebook.  If you’d love to see more head on over with this link:

Flying Horse Ranch

This wedding had so many sweet and beautiful personal details.  From having Victorias Mom’s wedding dress buttons sewn into the back of her dress, to a bit of lace on her bouquet, and the shot gun casings used for the boutonnieres  from a close friend…just a gorgeous and special day to photograph.   I was SO in love with the floral napkins at the reception and the candle light for the reception.  So stunning and unique.   Watching the way Victoria and Robert laughed and loved on each other all through out their wedding day still brings a smile to my face.  What a beautiful friendship they have.  And this wedding was nothing short of spectacular.   We had moody stormy skies that held off for portraits and an indoor ceremony with big tall windows overlooking the plains of Colorado.  I loved the way the Flying Horse Ranch was built with amazing architecture inside the ballroom.

 I simply can not wait to share a few of my favorites from this wedding.  If you’d like to see more, head on over to my facebook page with this link:

Mt. Falcon is easily becoming one of my favorite places to shoot at.  Gorgeous mountain views, big tall trees, amazing open fields and an occasional wild flower here and there.  I met Nick and Christine in the parking lot and they had their camping gear all ready to go.  Haha…I was like wait…are we doing an adventure session?  I admit I had some gear envy at their awesome back packs.  It was for the outfit changes and they said they didn’t mind changing in the woods.  Gosh…I love this couple.  They were just so carefree and up for whatever.  They admitted they were nervous to begin but ended up realizing that I’m kind of an awkward, laugh at her own jokes kind of person and they had fun.  ALWAYS, that is my goal.  I want it to be a fun experience.  I know just how nerve wracking it can be to have a camera in front of you.  Trying to figure out how to smile or rock a blue steel at random is tough on anyone’s nerves.   I love engagement sessions because it gives me a good chance to see how my couples interact.  Also, if they laugh with me that is serious bonus points.  I’m kidding.  But I adored the way Nick always had a hand out to help Christine anywhere we went.  Or the way she would laugh and randomly kiss Nick because she was just so happy…this was a beautiful session for me because of the way these two interacted together.  I could tell just how perfect they were for each other.  Balancing each other out in a sweet way as well as their obvious friendship.  I simply can not wait for their wedding day.  I know we are going to have a ton of fun celebrating their vows.  For now, here are a few of my favorites from their session.  If you’d like to see more head on over to my facebook page by clicking on my name here:

Mount Falcon Park

Such a gorgeous styled session that Sarah put together.  Such a creative soul.  I loved all the talented vendors that she helped bring together for her boho styled vision.  The florist, the unique boho pieces, the signs, the gorgeous makeup and hair…ahhh, truly a dream to photograph this couple with these ladies.   I will attach at the bottom of this blog post with all the vendors involved.

Sarah contacted me at the beginning of the year with her idea…and I was instantly excited!   We had a few locations in mind but narrowed it down to Mount Falcon and all its gorgeous mountain views.  So fun to hike around with this couple and photograph their first anniversary.  It was so obvious to see just how much this couple adores each other.  And what a first anniversary!  Champagne on a mountain side and just hint of rain…perfection.  I loved that this couple just smiled and laughed and said lets still do the shoot.  My kind of people.  <3 As Colorado likes to throw crazy at us but always delivers on gorgeous….its always worth it to go for it.  I simply can not wait to share a few of my favorites from their Boho Styled Shoot!  I have added more on my facebook page if you’d like to see more click on my name here:

Lionsgate Event Center

Imagine a secret garden with eclectic beautiful pieces and natural paths with trailing vines on trellis…this is what I photographed for Meghan and Adrian’s stunning wedding day.   Such a gorgeous venue!  I loved the reception hall with the big tall stain glass windows and the market lighting that they strung up for the dance floor.  Candles and beautiful floral centerpieces with hand painted gift boxes from Adrian and Meghan on each table made for the sweetest personal touches.    And the CAKE OMG the cake lol.  I have never seen such an intricate and stunning cake like this one.  Sugar flowers that looked real.  Ahhh, absolutely exquisite.

These details, simply a stunning backdrop to a couple that makes everyone smile as they enter a room.   You can’t help but smile back at these two.  The fact that they met each other at a bus stop…it gets me every time to see the way these two were meant for each other right from the beginning.  Stories like that are not just in the movies it would seem.  I loved that I could see how much they meant to each other all through out the day.  I can not wait to share a few of my favorites from their Lionsgate Wedding.  At the end of this post will be all the lovely talented vendors that helped make this wedding day possible.  If you’d like to see more images head on over to my facebook page
