Lisa & Matt’s Breckenridge Engagement Session

I just love Lisa & Matt as a couple. Describing Matt as the hipster and herself as the “yoga, barre loving type”, I could not wait to meet them.  Lisa also mentioned that Breckenridge was their first trip of any kind together and since she grew up skiing and snowboarding Breck, she introduced Matt to the mountain & town here and it became a very special place for them. Another great story of love in the mountains! Cheers to you two and best wishes with the beach wedding this summer!!

An Elegant Wedding at the Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch

Words can’t describe the elegance one feels at a wedding celebration in Beaver Creek. With the majestic Beaver Creek Mountain and spectacular Vail Valley creating a picturesque scene,
The Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch is the ideal location for destination weddings. Have a look at the following images photographed last summer to get inspired!

 

 

A Snowy Wedding in Breckenridge

I met with Ashley & Clint at one of the most amazing rental homes I’ve seen in Breckenridge. Within a couple of days they emailed to say that they wanted to hire me as their photographer. Wanting to know a bit more about them, I clicked on Ashley’s website to find out that she is a personal life coach. Her tagline is: Confidence, Clarity and Courage. I love this girl already. I am passionate about happy people with positive energy and this woman, this couple, seems to have it in spades. I emailed Ashley to let her know that I was excited to be working with them and also mentioned that she seems to have a great career and a very special skill of helping others. Her response back to me ended with this quote:
“Love who you are and what you bring to the world!”

Well, I do love the ability to work with people on one of the most special days of their lives… and I do love taking photographs of them that they will treasure forever! Thanks Ashley & Clint for being such a lovely couple to work with and for taking an oath to not let anything stress you out in any way on your wedding day! Such great advice to all.

 

A Spring Wedding in Downtown Breckenridge

Actually, it was a spring wedding reception in Breckenridge. Jessie & Ryan had already married over the winter as they eloped to Iceland. They are the owners of a new bar on Main Street called, “The Mine” and didn’t have a lot of time to be away from the busy ski season and their new business. So, after the elopement, they waited until our slower season and had the reception and party for their family and friends. They also really wanted to include Snappy this time as he was not able to be with them in Iceland. Snappy is a much loved, German Short Haired Pointer who was happy to be a part of the photo shoot at the High Line Railroad Park.

A Gorgeous, Autumn Wedding in Vail, Colorado

I absolutely love this silvery grey dress! Additionally, the combination of natural, red hair and the yellow aspen trees was a photographers dream. This autumn wedding day was simply stunning. The Donovan Pavillion provided a spectacular venue with it’s lush landscaping, green lawns and gorgeous views.  As usual, Petal & Bean provided some amazing flowers which matched the dress and the season perfectly!
