These two love the mountains and spent a lot of their free time in Summit County, but May at 9,000 feet is also known as mud-season. Zach and Maggie decided to head a bit south, to Buena Vista to get married. Zach & Maggie’s traditional Jewish wedding holds the record for the most tears in one day. These two value their faith, family and tradition, which is why their wedding day was so packed with emotion. Everyone surrounding them contributed every bit of love they had to offer. Zach and Maggie were a perfect example of vulnerable love and we were lost in the moment with them. Having seen ..read more

Damian & McCrea’s Tallahassee Plantation Wedding
Gillespie Photography Blog
by Stacy Gillespie
7M ago
Many of our couples are connected to past weddings we’ve photographed, whether they were a guest or someone in the wedding party. They know how we work. They know we’re high energy. They know they’ll get actual moment based photographs and not something scripted. We met Damian at a Camp Hale Wedding several years ago when we were documenting Robbie & Bria’s big day. When he and his fiance decided to get married on her family’s property in northern Florida, they began looking for local photographers, but just couldn’t find someone that checked all the boxes. Damian, having seen our editoria ..read more

2023 Behind the Scenes
Gillespie Photography Blog

7M ago
If you ask a wedding photographer what their job is, they’ll respond with a three page list of all the things they do, that don’t involve a camera. We’d go as far as to say that most couples don’t hire us based on the merit of the photos, but the service we give. There are so many talented photographers out there. Spend a few minutes on Fearless Photographers or WPJA and you’ll see just how competitive the photos are. Photographers are pushing the limits to unseen arenas of technicality and coverage. So, why do we continue to book weddings? Because of our connection with couples and our empath ..read more

Nestled amidst the Dolomite Mountains, Col Pradat sits above the town of Colfosco and truly is a dream wedding destination. Iris & Alex’s choice to have a Col Pradat Wedding was a testament to their appreciation for nature’s splendor and love for travel. Having photographed Alex’s brothers wedding in Gateway, CO, we were beyond thrilled when these two asked us to document their wedding at Col Pradat. We flew into Venice with no expectations, but were blown away by the amazing eats, history and rich culture. After a few days in the iconic floating city, we made our way north to join up with ..read more

Zach & Molley’s Winter Proposal on Aspen Mountain
Gillespie Photography Blog
by Trent Gillespie
1y ago
Working with Zach to plan his Proposal on Aspen Mountain, we had to pivot due to impending snowstorm. After flying in directly from San Diego that morning, they quickly made their way to the top of Silver Queen Gondola, so Zach could get down on one knee and ask the big question. I was close by with my cameras to capture the big moment. Molley’s reaction could not have been better. Shortly after he proposed, these two made their way back down the snow-packed mound to the ASPENX Club for a few celebratory drinks. The weather could not have more pleasant as it was a sunny 40 degrees on top for t ..read more

Planning a proposal can be a lot of work, but we love when it comes full circle as it is so rewarding. We connected with Audrey’s mother at church, who put us in contact with Zac. The Breceknridge Nordic Center had a special meaning to them both so it seemed perfect to take a snow cat ride together and pop the question in one of Breckenridges most breathtaking backdrops. Audrey’s reaction was priceless and she was overwhelmed with emotion. The Breckenridge Nordic Center even surprised them with a bottle of champagne to celebrate the occasion. Little did Zak know that he was also in for a surpr ..read more

Most of our Arapahoe Basin Wedding couples are adventurous, so when Blake & Lauren booked us for wedding photography, we figured we might be in for something more than just engagement photos. With both of them being avid backcountry skiers, they wanted do integrate a bit of that into their session. We decided to take it up another notch and integrate our machine for their engagements while backcountry skiing on Shrine Pass. We met these two at the Vail Pass parking lot and then jumped into our tracked Honda Pioneer to make our way up Shrine Pass for a few turns in the deep powder and some ..read more

Shortly after, we made our way to West Vail for the ceremony and reception. Pedro & Meredith’s Donovan Pavilion Wedding was a joy to photograph and ended with a surprise champagne gun appearance.

Palak & Shannon’s Denver Indian Wedding at The Curtis Hotel

1y ago
We met Palak back in 2018 when he was a groomsmen at Andrew & Karen’s C Lazy U Ranch Wedding. As you can imagine, we were elated to reconnect when he reached out telling us about his engagement and upcoming Curtis Hotel Wedding. Shannon & Palak wanted to highlight their two very different cultures, Indian & western traditional. We’d be lying if we said the western traditional was as exciting as the Indian Ceremony. Shutting down Curtis Street for Palak’s Baraat was quite the feat, but they pulled it off without a hitch. After the Indian ceremony was finished, these two races to the ..read more
