Ryan & Meghan’s Summer Engagement at Piney River Ranch

Jul
13th

When Ryan & Meghan asked for suggestions on where to shoot their engagement photos near Vail, we asked if they were up for an adventure. After a resounding “Yes,” we said Piney it is. The trek to Piney River Ranch isn’t for the faint of heart, but its oh so worth it. Upon arriving at the […]

Jonny & Lindsay’s Gold Hill Trail Engagement in Breckenridge

Jun
19th

Getting to know our clients before their wedding days usually requires a bit of social network stalking. Do they spend most of their time downtown or in the mountains? Would they rather sit down to a plated dinner or cook over a camp stove? Jonny & Lindsay seem to spend more time backpacking than they […]

Ireland

Jun
8th

The month of May in the Rocky Mountains is muddy, brown and usually slow for us, which is why we jumped at the opportunity to join our good friends, Daschle & Whitney, on a tour around Ireland. Its always good to exercise our creativity and rethink our fusion of landscape and portrait photography. Nothing gets us prepared […]

When first meeting our couples, we always ask for the backstory on how they met. For Marshall & Sarah, it all began in a classroom, deep in the engineering building at the University of Colorado in Boulder, CO. Soon after, they found themselves on the same dodge-ball team, on on the last game of the […]

Spring in the Rocky Mountains is as predictable as flipping a coin and hoping it lands on tails. Its either sunny and beautiful or a full on blizard. Fortunately for Mike & Stacey’s Spring Breckenridge Engagement session, we lucked out and got tails. Not only was there plenty of dramatic sunshine to work with, it […]

Artwork Network Gallery Wedding_0014

Guests often pull us aside to ask a question about our gear or compliment our work ethic, but on numerous occasions during Kris & Katy’s wedding, we kept hearing the words “perfect couple.” We couldn’t agree more. Their Denver Artwork Network Wedding was a reflection of the tight knit relationship these two built. Meeting with […]

Chris & Maya’s Summit County Winter Engagement

Mar
29th

We love us a Summit County Winter Engagement, this couple, and the job we do. If it weren’t for all three of those, these pictures wouldn’t exist. When Maya approached about shooting their session in the mountains, we were all for it. Nothing compliments beautiful people like these backgrounds do, but it also takes a […]

Shane & Christin’s Brainard Lake Engagement

Mar
19th

After moving to Colorado, Shane & Christin’s first hike in the Rocky Mountains just so happened to be at Brainard Lake, so shooting their engagement photos here seemed fitting. We took our time, stopping every hundred feet to snap some photos, but more so, to let these two play and laugh together. Upon reaching the […]

Mar

We find ourselves at Camp Hale several times a year and its quickly become one of our favorite venues, but all of our shoots have been weddings. Never an engagement… so when Dustin reached out, wanting to pop the question on top of a mountain, we quickly suggested a Nova Guides Snowmobile Tour for his […]

Ben & Katie’s Flying Horse Ranch Wedding

Mar
11th

It all started with a glance across the room. Noticing her Washington State sweatshirt, he decided that was enough common-ground to strike up a conversation with his soon-to-be wife. Mentioning that it was his old stomping grounds, “It’s my roommates sweatshirt,” Katie said. That was it, but Ben never forgot about Katie. Luckily, there is more […]

Jon & Shannon’s Colorado Winter Engagement

Feb
15th

While Summit County has seen record snowfall this winter, Denver has been relatively dry, which always makes it fun when couples want to capture their engagement photos in the mountains. The snow adds another element of adventure, but often results in cold feet with plenty of embracing to stay warm. Jon & Shannon absolutely killed […]

Another year down and so much to be thankful for. By far the biggest change, has been our awesome little boy, Easton. He’s been a trooper, adjusting to the crazy schedule we wedding photographers consider normalcy. Also, a huge shout out to Lauren, our parents and everyone else who’s helped mold him into what he […]

Every so often, we get beautiful snowfalls on not-so-cold winter days. This was not one of those days… but Nick & Lauren rocked their Breckenridge Winter Engagement from the beginning to the end. We began the shoot just behind the Stephen C. West Ice Arena in a beautiful cove of evergreens that were ever so […]
