I’ve known Avi and Halle since they were in preschool and now they are at Boulder High School! We did our session in the studio first and then in the mountains above Boulder and finished just as it started to rain. Izzie, their little white dog, was a hoot and added some fun images. I think the images and their bright faces speak louder than any words I might use to describe them.
When Corbin called me to describe their destination wedding in Tincup, CO I knew it would be a fun trip and I was so curious about a town called Tincup which is between Buena Vista and Gunnison just at the bottom of Cottonwood Pass. I absolutely love the scenery and light of the western slope which makes for such unique and outstanding images. I stayed in Salida, a cute artsy town nearby. The ceremony was on the banks of Taylor Reservoir and the remaining photos we did in Tincup where Kaili’s family has a cabin. The last portraits of the couple were actually done just outside the Tincup cemetery, overlooking some beautiful beaver ponds. We finished just as it started to rain and the ceremony was at noon which can be pretty hard light to work with.
Loan and David’s Denver wedding was exquisite. The day started at the Four Season’s in downtown Denver, followed by a ceremony at the Denver Cathedral and finished in Sedalia at The Sanctuary, with it’s majestic views of the front range. During the ceremony it was admirable to hear they were making a donation to charity. They arrived at the reception by helicopter, landing on the golf course! I never imagined using a helicopter as a big prop. It’s not easy. They are awkward shaped things. The flowers were magnificent, and the cake topper was actually miniature models of both of them.
It’s hard not to take a good photo of Allison and Nick. At only 22 years old, they are impressively mature and as loving and committed a couple as I have ever seen. She and Nick put a lot of thought and energy into planning the details of their Denver wedding and it showed everywhere. The views of downtown and the mountains from Brittany Hill Event Center were awesome. A fun group to work with and photograph, it was hard to choose just a few images for the blog.
Katie and Shane’s wedding at the Hotel Boulderado was as unique as they are. There was a dancer among us in the wedding party who gave a wonderful surprise performance at the wedding reception. Continuing with a tradition from their California days, they also had karaoke at the wedding reception! Don’t miss this fun video.
