Astrophotography Engagement Session

Sometimes we have couples who come to us for an Alt Session because they have a very specific idea of what they want to do and they haven’t found anyone else who could bring their idea to life. This was the case with Jenn and Phil’s astrophotography engagement session. And it might be one of the biggest compliments we could possibly get, because it means that we’re continually pushing the bounds of what engagement photography looks like…and that people like it! Jenn and Phil wanted two things for their engagement session: the Great Sand Dunes and star photos – which also happen to be two of ..read more

In October of 2022, Jesse and I were at home with a rare weekend off from weddings in what’s typically our busiest month of the season. I was doing what I’m currently doing now and catching up on writing blog posts. Jesse was sequestered in his editing cave. And we both got a notification on our phones of an email from Carolyn and Logan asking if we could chat about possibly covering their Telluride elopement the following year. I don’t always remember where I was when a couple first reaches out, but I do for Carolyn and Logan’s Telluride elopement for two reasons. First, we were already fam ..read more

It’s that time of year again when we take a moment to look back at our best wedding photos of 2023. All of our shoots were spread evenly throughout the year this year, starting with Morgan and Brad’s beautiful nighttime wedding at the Denver Botanic Gardens on January 7th to Meredythe and Robert’s winter wedding at Black Canyon Inn on December 16th. The latter also marked our 15th wedding at BCI, which officially makes is our most frequently photographed venue of all time.

After Tyler & Landon’s huge blowout celebration at the end of September, we switched gears for October, starting with Jovanka & Alex’s intimate Sunrise Amphitheater wedding in Boulder. Jovanka is a bride after my own heart, starting wedding planning two years in advance. When she first reached out, the wedding she and Alex were thinking of looked very different. There were more guests, a bigger venue, and a lot more moving parts. But two years is a lot of time to think about what you really want from your wedding. So part of the way through planning, they decided to make some big cha ..read more

As anyone who lives in a travel destination knows, there’s the version of your town that the tourists see. And then there’s the real version that only the locals and a select few of their favorite people get to experience. Carrie and Conrad’s Crested Butte wedding weekend was the latter. We started our local’s tour of Crested Butte with their welcome party at the Majestic Theatre, where Carrie and Conrad first met and later fell in love, while serving perfectly buttered popcorn and playing Yahtzee behind the concessions stand. These two took their love of movies and the theatre to another le ..read more

We don’t walk into every wedding and immediately feel like we’re hanging out with friends. But at Heather and Chris’s Boulders wedding, we did! From my very first conversation with Heather to their flower-filled engagement session to the very end of the wedding reception, it felt like we had known this couple for a lifetime. While talking to their wedding party and their guests, I discovered that this isn’t an unusual occurrence with Heather and Chris. And even if the toasts hadn’t called out their warm personalities and the joy they take in giving to others, it would have been obvious from ..read more
