Weddings don’t always go as planned, especially during monsoon season in Colorado. Lucky for me I have the coolest most laid back couples who roll with the punches and don’t let a little (or a lot) of rain stop them from having the best day of their lives. Sonya and Pete were married at Sonya’s Grandparents ranch in Steamboat Springs. Minutes before their ceremony was set to begin our crazy unpredictable Colorado weather decided to do it’s thing. Sonya and Pete didn’t let that stop them from reciting their sweet vows, getting married huddled under a tent with all of their guests.
Did you know that when you book me to film your wedding you get a one minute preview film within two weeks of your wedding day?! Editing wedding films takes time and I want you to have something pretty to watch while you wait. Here is Maria & Bryan's Beaver Creek, CO preview video. And I edit each preview to be one minute long so you can post it to Instagram - if that's your jam.
Molly and Ernest exchanged vows on top of Beaver Creek Mountain at Trappers Cabin with their families. It was one of the sweetest little weddings I've ever seen. I love shooting intimate weddings and elopements. And even more when I get to work with my favorite Vail Valley photographers Nate & Jenny Weddings. Molly and Ernest are the sweetest couple and capturing their lovely wedding day was such an honor.
It's couples like Betsy and Ben that make my job easy. No need to say "give her a kiss!" because he was giving her kisses all day long. They are so in love and so happy to share this day with all their family and friends. Vail is Betsy and Ben's home away from home and one of their favorite places on earth. I was honored to create a film that showcases the beauty of Vail and their gorgeous wedding.
Megan and Ryan have been through a lot together and it is so clear that they always have and always will be there for one another. One of the best parts of my job is filming couples who are so obviously meant for each other. Megan and Ryan are one of those couples. They were married on February 25 at Saddleridge in Beaver Creek. Saddleridge is an all around great wedding venue but I think even better for winter weddings. You can have a fun Colorado-style ceremony, indoors, while capturing the surrounding beauty of Beaver Creek. This was my first wedding of 2018 and I feel very fortunate to kick this year off with such an amazing couple. Congrats to Megan and Ryan and all the adventures you'll share together.
I love a good winter wedding. Especially when it includes an outdoor ceremony with 360 degree mountain views. Yes, everyone was freezing cold but it was 100% worth it. Kayla & Trey married on Dec. 27 with close friends and family at The Lodge at Breckenridge. They were determined to have an outdoor ceremony rain (snow) or shine and I'm so happy they stuck with it. The views from The Lodge could not be more stunning. It's the perfect venue to begin a beautiful marriage.
Sometimes there are weddings that not only make me laugh and cry while shooting but get me all teared up editing as well. Kiera, Gunnar and their families are hands down some of the most wonderful people I've ever had the pleasure of working with. All the toasts were so touching and meaningful Take a look at this fun, emotional Beano's Cabin wedding.
When your wedding involves a piñata during cocktail hour it's pretty much a given that it's going to be one heck of a day. Kaitlin & Arturo met during a family Christmas trip to Puerto Vallarta. Kaitlin thought Arturo was a cutie so she slipped the bellman a note to give him when she left the hotel. Arturo eventually connected with her and the rest is history! Isn't that the best meeting story ever!?
I really hit the client jackpot with these two. Not only was their wedding day perfect and stunning and #allthethings but they may be two of the nicest people I've ever met. Timber Ridge on Keystone Resort is quickly becoming one of my favorite venues in Colorado. The endless mountain views, TWO gondola rides and rustic lodges make for the perfect guest experience. Thank you to Rebecca & Brandon for allowing me to be a part of your amazing wedding day. Oh! And of course working with the vendor dream team of Love This Day Events and rock star photographer Laura Murray.
Though it's not very close to us here in the mountains Spruce Mountain Ranch is one of my favorite venues in Colorado. The ceremony spot has beautiful views and the reception venue is not only huge but has an elegant western feel. Michelle & Erik are such a sweet couple and their vows almost brought me to tears during the ceremony. The first thing I noticed about Michelle was he amazing laugh which I tried to incorporate into their film as much as possible. It wasn't hard because her groom made her laugh a lot.
