Jackie and Zack. Zack and Jackie. What to say about these two?! They make such an incredible team and it showed in their beautifully planned DIY wedding! When someone tells you that their wedding is going to be in the groom's father's backyard, you never know what to expect, but they transformed the space so wonderfully, you'll just have to see it for yourself! All the decorative details aside, their love is so real you could feel it through every moment of the day!  Don't hesitate to check out their dreamy DIY wedding now!

Meet Tim and Alana!  I am so beyond lucky and blessed to have connected with these two for their engagement photos in January of 2016 and to now be able to call them friends.  We actually did their engagement photos one year to the day of their original wedding date.  They then found out they were going to have to add a plus one of their own for their wedding and have to postpone it a few months.  Fast forward to their new wedding date, March 24th, 2017 and their cute, cool, hip 4 month old, Jude, nearly stole the show! I am so thankful to have gotten to witness their "I-Do's" and hangout at the after party until 6am before catching an 8:30am flight the next day.  I think I'm still tired from the after party, but I'd do it all over again in a heartbeat! Without further ado, check out their wedding story here!

Meet Megan and Greg! They got married at El Chorro in Phoenix and if it's not the #1 venue in Arizona, it's gotta be right up at the top of the list!  I was blown away by how we were in the middle of the city and yet it felt like we were in a secluded perfect oasis.  These two and their beautiful familes and friends put on a party for the ages!  Quite possibly my favorite wedding moment or favorite funniest moment of all time was when the bouquet got stuck in the chandelier during the bouquet toss! To see what happened next, you'll just have to scroll and find out!

It's such a blessing to get to capture your friends wedding, especially those who were pushing you to chase your dreams of photography and go full time long before you actually did.  To be in my fourth year full time now and to get to capture Ashley's wedding was such an honor because she was one of those people.  All that mushy stuff aside, Ashley and Steven picked THE best weekend for fall color last year and a venue in Camp Hale that is just so stunning!  Check out their day here and if you want some background music, check out the song that Ashley's brother Austin wrote and performed for them at their reception!

In regards to their secret wedding back on April 3rd, 2015:  "With Bobby joining the military, we knew he'd be stationed in Cali. We knew we wanted to get married down the road so eloping sounded way less stressful than being long distance for anymore time(it had been 2 years at that point). Bobby had always wanted to have a big wedding in the backyard, so keeping it under wraps was our way of still having the fun that comes with planning a big wedding. And a bonus ended up being figuring out what it meant to be husband and wife without the outside pressures of social media, etc" -Haley

Fast forward to December 31st, 2016 where Haley and Bobby rang in the new year in style celebrating their "I-do's," making them public in the family's backyard with all their friends and extended family.  The backyard by the way, was converted into one of the best and dreamiest of venues I've ever seen!  Kudos to the family and their event planner, Elizabeth Marcou for making it so amazing! I am so happy to have gotten the opportunity to spend time with these two and all their people as we counted down the end of 2016 and started 2017 off with a bang!(Literally with all the sparklers and fireworks!) 

Lastly, a huge shout out and thank you to my friend and amazingly talented photographer, Jo Julia Ramsey for shooting with me and giving up her NYE to do so!

Without further ado: Check out Haley and Bobby's special day!

Alysha and Tommy had a winter wedding for the ages and a dance party that I am certain will never be forgotten! I am still bummed that I missed the mannequin challenge that happened after I left! We had just the right amount of sunshine to keep us warm during their portraits and family photos even though it was quite brisk that day!  Take a look at the story of their day here through both my photos and my 2nd photographer, Trevor's!

Jeff and Ashley...The Schmillers(Schmidt + Miller). I don't even know where to start with these two, but I know that I am lucky to call them friends and to get to witness their beautiful and adventurous love for each other. That being said, for their engagement session, they didn't want to just do a shoot. They wanted to turn it into an event with all their favorite people: CAMP SCHMILLER.  Camp Schmiller in their eyes would be a 3 day, 2 night camping trip with all their people and 2 mini-shoots that you just can't miss because these two and their love for each other exudes from the photos on the screen! Speaking of the photos, I was blessed to get to join forces with both Tommy and Derek, and cannot take the credit for this shoot solely because they are both beasts behind the camera and helped me turn this shoot into what you see here!  Lastly, I should put a WARNING out there: in the Camp Schmiller campsite segment, there may be a photo of a few naked butts. Consider yourself warned. 

All that being said, to learn a little bit more about The Schmillers, read the following writeup by Ashley on their first meeting thru to how Jeff proposed.  I cannot wait to celebrate them this fall at Camp Hale!

Devin and Sierra...these two...are just awesome. I love how silly they are together and how much fun you can tell they have.  Fun amplified now that they even have a mini-me in Daxton, who pretty much stole the show all day, smiling on cue and watching his mom and dad tie the knot like the little stud that he is! I'm so excited for these two, their growing family and for their life together now as husband and wife!

These two...What can I say about these two?!?  I will say that I feel very lucky to have gotten to witness their amazing and beautiful day at the Omni Interlocken Hotel.  Their story is the kind that dreams are made of and I'm fairly certain there wasn't a dry eye in the place when Brittany said vows to Keith's daughter!  From those vows to the magical sunset we watched to the crazy dance party to close out the night, I consider myself blessed to have gotten the opportunity to capture their day!  Congrats and all the best wishes in the world to you, Keith and Brittany!

I think you know it's a great fit(at least for me) when you meet potential clients at a brewery and we end up talking about adventures, traveling, camping, offroading, etc for the majority of our meeting.  I felt that way about these two when we first met and feel even more so now that I've gotten to know them better!  I have them to thank for sharing their favorite special place with me, Crested Butte.  I can't believe in my 6 years here in Colorado I had never been and now, I can't wait for my next visit! All that being said, their wedding was ridiculous. Ridiculously amazing.  The energy between them and their families and friends was so electric, I'm surprised the party ever stopped...or did it?! 

We met up on Friday before their wedding for a practice mini-session and we went to the place where Joe proposed to Sabrina.  They invited their closest friends who were already in town to join for some mountain air, stunning views and cold beers.  Then the following day we had a glorious Colorado bluebird day for the ceremony at Woods Walk and their reception at Town Ranch ended with the most amazing purple and pink sunset lit sky!  Thank you SO much for trusting me with your day and letting me in to your world of friends and family!  I wish you two the best in your adventures together now as husband and wife and I hope to run into you soon on a trail or at a brewery!
