When I finally met Katie in person she was getting her hair and make up done just hours before her ceremony. I love this time of the day. Listening to the gals chatting about past memories and just being so excited for what’s to come…
Katie shared with me that her and Daniel met years before when they both at the same college. After graduating they went their separate ways and reconnected years later. The sweetest part of the story is that during their time apart they would send each postcards. How sweet is that?! Continue reading “Rocky Mountain Wedding Photographer – Wild Basin Lodge”

Best of 2016
2016 was a wonderful year. It was my best year yet! For many reasons, but most of all because I became a mom in the beginning of this lovely year. It was an interesting wedding season for sure… One because it was pretty hard to be away from my little lady and also because pumping at weddings was one thing I was stressing about before my season even started. Oh the many joys of a nursing wedding photographer. BUT I worried for nothing! All of my couples were so genuine and understanding! I really do have the greatest clients!! Continue reading “Best of 2016”

The details on Brooke’s dress was stunning! AND she wore Toms! The only shoes I own (besides one pair of boots) are Toms… SO, this was pretty exciting for me! Continue reading “Wild Basin Lodge Summer Wedding”

Melissa and Joshua had a stunning Estes Park Wedding at a gorgeous wedding venue located on Lake Estes – The Estes Park Resort has beautiful views and is a wonderful choice for celebrating such a special occasion!
I have been looking forward to Melissa & Josh’s wedding for quite some time! I was so excited when Melissa’s mom, Patti contacted me to photographer her daughters wedding. She was so kind and sweet to me during our phone conversations! When I chatted with Melissa for the first time it was no different. She was genuinely kind and so excited to be getting married. I knew I was going to love shooting her wedding.
I asked Melissa the story of how they met. Here is her precious response… “Josh and I were introduced through my sister and her boyfriend (both who are in our wedding party). We were introduced by them and have been inseparable since then. It is a situations where we both feel we have been on a path circling around one another waiting to collide and it finally happened!!“
Melissa and Josh were absolutely amazing to work with! They were incredibly laid back and so much fun to photograph! They were a bride and groom that were completely immersed in the love they share for one another.
When I arrived Melissa had a big smile on her face and was so welcoming and kind. She later was on the floor playing peek-a-boo with her precious baby girl, Lyla – who was absolutely adorable!!
Throughout the entire wedding and reception they were both so present and calm – it is a truly beautiful thing to witness and I am so grateful I was able to photograph and preserve these memories for them and their families and friends.
Brigitte with Floral Design of Europe created stunning floral arrangements! I absolutely love the colors of these flowers!!
Jay with Standing Room Only is one the best and most amazing DJ’s in the state! He was awesome and had the party going all night long!
Here are some of my favorites from Melissa & Josh’s wedding day…
