The Flying Horse Ranch: Sarah & Scott’s Colorado Wedding

 

Situated on 3600 acres in South Park, Colorado, The Flying Horse Ranch took my breath away. I couldn’t resist telling people that this was one of the very best and certainly the most unique wedding venue that I’d ever photographed. Complete with a stunning, 12,000 sq. ft. lodge, two caretaker homes, and a fishing camp, this property is one of the top 5 working ranches in the United States. It also happens to provide some of the most beautiful scenery of the Continental Divide that one could ever find. [Read more…]

Keystone Resort: The Timber Ridge Lodge

Mathew & Veronica along with their wedding party on the deck of the Timber Ridge Lodge at the top of Keystone Mountain.

We began photographing Veronica at the Timber’s Lodge at the base of Keystone Resort. Her lovely bridesmaids helped her into her wedding dress…and she looked stunning! Who knew that the images we took behind the lodge, near the river could ever look so lush in this high alpine setting. We were pleasantly surprised with the start of the day. Veronica was so laid back, happy and ready for the day.

Bodhi the Berner

Bernese Mountain Dog

Bodhi, our 12 year old Bernese Mountain Dog.

My Bernese Mountain Dog, Bodhi, is way more excited about this recent snow than I am.

AKC describes them as: “A hardy dog that thrives in cold weather, the “Berner’s” intelligence, strength and agility helped him perform the drafting and droving work in the mountainous region where he originated. Today, this versatile breed participates in conformation, obedience, carting, agility, tracking, herding and therapy work. Like the other Swiss breeds, they are tri-colored, with patches of black, rust and white.”
