Mike & Dana’s Allred’s Wedding in Telluride

Nov
13th

It’s not the five hour drive to Telluride that makes it feel like a destination wedding, but more so the fact that it feels like no place on earth. Sorry Vail, but Telluride deserves this slogan. It really is one of the most beautiful locations in Colorado, making the list of top two wedding towns…

We love it when past wedding guests inquire with us to shoot their wedding, so when Arthur & Katie’s email arrived in our inbox, we were elated. Then 2020 happened and things got all wonky, but they wanted to wait it out and have the party they originally envisioned. Instead of having it at the…

Andrew & Lauren’s Colorful Fall Wedding at Piney

Feb
10th

We didn’t have a single wedding in 2020 that felt normal, with reason, but Andrew & Lauren’s Colorful Fall Wedding at Piney came the closest.

Covid forced Ryan & Kira to move their Buena Vista Wedding over Cottonwood Pass to one of our favorite mountain towns, Crested Butte.

With the forecast of a winter storm looming for Dan & Jordan’s engagement, we moved their evening session to a sunrise one to take advantage of the fall color before the wind took its course. So, don’t let this warm light fool you… it was a cold session with high speed winds. In the end…
