A Breckenridge Ski Vacation at the Big Sky Ranch

The Big Sky Ranch remains one of my all time favorite rental homes in Breckenridge. It is a very large, well designed home that is also very comfortable and welcomes children and dogs. The view of the Ten Mile Range and Breckenridge Ski Resort is stunning. So, when Antonette called to ask if I would photograph three families who were staying at the house, I gladly accepted. They all had ideas of the look they were going for, which was great! Antonette’s family wanted to wear ski gear and recreate some fun family photos they had done in the past, complete with skis and boards as props. We all had a ton of fun and were rewarded with an epic, sunny day for the photography.

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!


Juan & Pam Get Engaged in Breckenridge

Let’s hear it for the Boys! I am happy to say that I have had the pleasure of photographing several surprise marriage proposals in Breckenridge this winter. It takes a bit of old fashioned romance, some serious organizational skills and a lot of courage to not only pop the big question, but to have it captured with photographs by someone you’ve never even met!

A Family Portrait in Breckenridge

Lynda called to say that she was going to be in Breckenridge with her family and asked if I would take not only some new portraits of her family, but some individual portraits of her. She proudly announced that she was turning fifty and said she would like some new portraits of herself taken on her birthday. She also plans to write a blog about being fifty and wants to use the images for that website as well. I met the Oliver family at One Ski Hill Place and drove them to a nearby, outdoor location for the photography. I was a bit worried because when I left my house, it was -15 degrees. However, by the time we were ready to shoot, it had warmed up to a balmy 10 degrees. They did an amazing job of looking fairly warm on such a cool morning!
