I recently had the opportunity to again shoot with my friend Frances. This time it was at The Westin Riverfront Resort & Spa in Beaver Creek to shoot Molly & Marc’s gorgeous wedding celebration. I couldn’t have asked for a better group on a better day. Thanks Frances.
On a beautiful afternoon at Four Seasons Resort in Vail, Colorado Allicia & Porter expressed their love for each other in front of friends, family and the spectacular backdrop of the Rocky Mountains. The couple and their wedding party made for fantastic images and a wonderful experience for all.
Well, it has been a long time in the making but our daughter is going to be a flower girl. This has been a dream for her in her short life and now that dream will come true. Her cousin will be married this summer and was kind enough to fold under the pressure and ask Elsa if she was up to the task. Is she ever! Our first step was to go and try on dresses and what better place to go then to our friends at Marie James in Bonnie Brea. Marie James offers a beautiful selection of bridal party gowns and specializes in making each client feel like a princess. Sally and Katie were great and Elsa had a super time trying on everything they offered that was even close to her size. We went on a Saturday that seemed to be pretty busy. All of the other clients were pleased to step away from the mirrors so that Elsa could see how she looked. We found loads of good options and her cousin should have plenty to choose from. What a day for an excited young lady.
We had a beautiful Sunny September day to celebrate the wedding of Katie & Brendan at Wild Basin Lodge. As always Wild Basin did a fantastic job creating a great event. It is always a pleasure to shoot with Meghan Russell and I thank Dave for the opportunity to be part of such a memorable event. Brigette, of Floral Design of Europe, designed beautiful floral arrangements and Marcy, of Colorado Rose Cake Company, created a beautiful and delicious wedding cake. Jay, of Standing Room Only DJ, was a fabulous MC and kept the dance-floor full. The wedding took place in “The Meadow” and the wonderful weather complimented the moving ceremony.
Another beautiful wedding shoot at Four Seasons Resort in Vail, Colorado. It is always a pleasure to shoot a fantastic couple in such a great setting on such a special day. We had some concerns about the weather but, though the clouds did build up, the rain held off until everyone was inside for dinner. Good timing on that. The Four Seasons is a wonderful place to shoot weddings and Vail Village offers such amazing locations to shoot memorable images.
Yet another great couple, Katie & Chris, at Wild Basin Lodge. Again, I was helping out my friend Dave Russell, shooting with his amazingly talented daughter, Meghan. It is definitely worth the time to check out Meghan’s awesome work at Visual Poetry by Meghan. This day at Wild Basin was at times wild to say the least. Right about the time the ceremony was to begin in “The Meadow”, Mother Nature decided to send in a very gusty yet short shower to seal the lucky couples wedding commitment. It was exciting to see and hear the umbrellas blow out backwards if an unlucky guest let the wind get in. Well, the storm quickly passed, the couple was pronounced and as the song my daughter loves goes……”out came the sun and dried up all the rain”. We were treated to some amazing light and a fabulous double rainbow, which made for some awesome images. What a wild day to remember.
What a great experience….shooting Janeen & Michaels fabulous wedding at the amazing Della Terra Mountain Chateau with Meghan Russell. It was a blast! Again, I was able to shoot for my friend Dave Russell and I couldn’t thank him more.
This wedding venue is awesome. Della Terra, located in Estes Park, Colorado was built for weddings and they got it right. From the ballroom to the preparation rooms, the wedding site to the unbelievably beautiful mountain setting; Della Terra offers photo ops that blow my mind. Every nook and cranny there has great image potential.
Janeen & Michael were fantastic as well. Not only are they a very photogenic couple but they were very excited to have great memories captured through our images. We were all over the place and they were game for anything and everything. Best of all it was very obvious that they were in love and enjoying every moment of their wedding day.
I recently had a great opportunity to shoot a wedding for a fellow photographer and friend, Dave Russell, at Wild Basin Lodge near Estes Park, Colorado. I worked with Dave’s wonderful daughter Meghan who is also a very accomplished photographer and has tons of experience shooting at Wild Basin and around Estes Park. I had never shot there so it was exciting to be at a new site. This is the first of a number of shoots that I will be doing for Dave and shooting with Meghan. The bride and groom, Kerry & AJ were great and super to work with. The day was spectacular and the subjects and location were beautiful.
A project like this makes me love being a photographer. This last weekend I had the opportunity to shoot the wedding of some great friends in a beautiful setting. Tanya & Joe celebrated their wedding with family and friends at Four Seasons Resort in Vail and Angie & I not only helped make it possible but were able to be guests as well. Tanya shot our wedding seven years ago in Mexico so it really meant a lot to be able to shoot her wedding. The day was great, the venue is awesome and fun was had by all. Thanks for including us!
