Arapahoe Basin Mountain Wedding

Amanda & Matt

Amanda & Matt’s wedding on top of Arapahoe Basin Mountian reminded me of why I shoot.  It was such a classy wedding and it was so much fun to run around and create with these two.   Their wedding was at the Black Mountain Lodge on top of A-Basin.  During the slow times we got to run around the mountain and take some portraits, just heaven.  You might remember these two from their engagement shoot we did earlier in the year.  Check it out here!  I had to bring the Otus back out for this one since we had it at their engagement shoot and I must say the Zeiss 55mm Otus is a sweet lens.  I love the thing so much I had to call it by its proper name.  ha ha.  Anyhow this wedding was super emotional and super sweet.  Everybody there seemed like one big happy family and it was a serious honor to attend.  Thanks Amanda & Matt, you guys are awesome!

Steam Punk wedding on Elephant Island

Anna & Colden

I had the privilege of shooting this Steam Punk themed wedding on Elephant Island the other day! It was small and extremely beautiful, very fitting of an island!   I love when my clients make their wedding their own and Anna and Colden definitely did that! These two are world travelers who met over sees and have brought their love back to the states.   Their family and friends were all very nice and hip, it was so nice to relax with them on this bright and sunny day.  The day started as we jumped on a ferry to get over to Elephant Island in Granby Lake, then they had a short and sweet ceremony before we took some photos on the island and headed back to Colden’s parents house for a steam punk themed reception. (Pictures coming soon).  I wanna thank my friend Levi Tijerina for coming along and to Colden and Anna for tromping around the island with me! Cheers guys, I hope you enjoy the images!
