A Summer Wedding at the Keystone Ranch

We all love the Keystone Ranch. It’s historic and elegant with the perfect mix of old and new. You will find an atmosphere of rustic elegance, set in an authentic 1930’s homestead.
I simply can’t think of a wedding venue that says “Colorado” any more than the Ranch!RanchWedd054 RanchWedd030RanchWedd036RanchWedd058 IMG_9741IMG_9905 IMG_9991

Breckenridge Engagement

What a fun engagement portrait session we had on a snowy, spring day in Breckenridge.  Joanna & Ryan are having the Dillon Dam Brewery brew a special beer for their wedding reception.
One of these photos will become the “custom” label for their own bottles of beer. Naturally, they wanted their favorites things – dogs & bikes – to be in the photos as well.  I’m excited to see what image will be selected as the label!! Stay tuned

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!!

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.
