Evergreen Lake House

Evergreen is simply breathtaking.  The way the lake house sits inside the valley surrounded by mountains and a beautiful lake…stunning.  Its a stunning venue and I love getting to work here every time.  I love that you can photograph it different every time you approach it.  Sara and Nate decided on having a first look and I got there early the day of to look for a beautiful spot for them.  We found a small park up the road that was perfect.  Surrounded by the forest and big boulders, I watched Sara and Nate stand back to back and read their personal letters to each other.  I loved the way they made each other laugh and smile all day long.  One of Nate’s favorite things about Sara was her laugh and I loved that she is the type of person to smile so easily.  She makes everyone feel so incredibly loved where ever she goes.   When Nate saw Sara for the first time…you could tell he was absolutely speechless.  Yes, to men who so easily express their feelings and emotions…Nate did not hold back and proceeded to make Sara feel like the most beautiful woman in the world.  So touching to photograph them.

Sara and Nate shared their vows and had their first dance on the deck at the Evergreen Lake house.    Beautiful and oh so magical to have such a stunning backdrop for their wedding.  I simply can not wait to share a few of my favorites from their wedding day.

    Emilyanne Hardy - Evergreen Lake House is one of my FAVORITE Colorado mountain wedding venues. It’s deep enough in the mountains to hold that vibe, but close enough to Denver it’s convenient for family and friends to get to. This wedding is absolutely beautiful too. Perfect style to go with the gorgeous scenery!ReplyCancel

Sanctuary Golf Course Wedding

Oh my goodness!  What an amazing day.  It started off with a little bit of rain but like any good Colorado day we know it will pass.  Or at least we hope with all our might on a wedding day lol.  And it worked like a charm for Eric and Maegan’s wedding day.   Gorgeous soft pink peonies, tables lit by candlelight, lights in gorgeous draping over the ceremony and dance floor,  and beautiful wood signage made this wedding so fun to photograph for all the details.   Add in the stunning views at the Sanctuary Golf Course and its a perfect place to get married at!  Maegan’s wedding dress…such exquisite perfection and she looked so stunning and beautiful.  The way Eric looked at Maegan during the ceremony left no doubt just how much he adores her.

I admit this couple right from the beginning…it was an easy connection and I knew I wanted to work with them.   I liked the way they both bring out the best in each other.  I love the way they laugh and care about the details with each other.  To be so cherished…such a gift and I know this couple will be one to stand the test of time.   Not only did I love the way they made each other happy…but they keep everyone around them smiling.  Watching them on the dance floor and saying they never want their night to end…gosh they were just so in the moment.  And that is amazing to see and photograph.   Their sparkler exit is one of my favorites I’ve had the privilage to photograph.  Their happiness was just so contagious!  I can’t wait to share a few of my favorites from this wedding day.

Getting to photograph Courtney and Dan’s wedding at the Space Gallery in Denver was amazing!  Natural light, gorgeous architecture and the walls were filled with amazing works of art.  Simply the perfect backdrop for this urban loving couple.  They also had the most amazing catering by one of Dan’s favorite food trucks, Wheel and Whisk.  AMAZING!  This was such a fun wedding!

Their first look will forever go down as one of my favorites.  I watched Courtney climb the stairs, saw Dan take a deep breath and could see that their forever was going to be beautiful.  He turned around and was speechless…if only for a moment and then he proceeded to tell her just how beautiful and gorgeous she was.  To say that Dan cherishes Courtney would be an understatement.  I love that you can see that in every image.  Courtney was overwhelmed and had tears streaming down her face as he held her.  Just beautiful.

I had asked Dan how they had met and he mentioned it was at party for work.   He was reaching over to give one of his friends a high five and Courtney reached up and took that high five instead.  Hahaha…gosh…that is such a story from a movie if I’ve ever heard one.  I love this couple and I can not wait to share a few of my favorites from their Space Gallery Wedding.

If you live in Colorado you need to be able to change your plans quickly…and its usually based on the weather.  We had been planning on heading to the mountains that day but the storms chased us back to Colorado Springs and all at a different set time.  I loved that Robert and Victoria were so flexible!  I ended up LOVING this location even more.  I get so used to shooting outside of Colorado Springs that I forget how much we have to offer here.  I loved the beautiful creek, big tall cotton woods and Pikes Peak at a distance.  Just a perfect location for any Colorado Springs Photographer.  I think we spent the majority of our time laughing…and even a few moments dodging Gardner snakes…ummm no thanks.   Haha…loved this sweet couple and I simply can’t wait to share there session!

Mt. Falcon Engagement Session – Mesha and Chris

Mesha wanted to have a spring session when planning her Mt. Falcon session with me.  Well, spring in Colorado is often winter in Colorado lol.  We ended up having a spring storm a few days prior and then on the day of 65 degree temps.  So we did get both haha.  I love it.   Mesha and Chris just laughed as any true Colorado person would.

 They are getting married in December and I could not be more excited to work with them.  I seem to attract laid back and funny couples as my clients and I love that.    Mesha has the most beautiful smile and I loved the way she would laugh with Chris.  These two have such an easy way of relating to each other and its absolutely beautiful to photograph.

We chose Mt. Falcon for its stunning views.  If you are near Denver and looking for a fun place to hike with your family or loved one…this park is amazing!  And I highly recommend it!
