I’m SO excited to share this wedding! Thomas & Becky’s Black Canyon Inn wedding was one I’ll never forget. There were so many happy tears (many of them from me) and so much laughter! This day was filled with the sweetest moments, from Thomas and Becky’s first look, to the emotional dance Becky shared with […]

Black Canyon Inn Wedding – Becky & Thomas

Putting this styled elopement together was seriously a dress! It all started with the dress. That dress, holy cow, it’s so beautiful. I wanted to do a shoot that would really show it off, and I thought a styled elopement would be the perfect way to do that! I wanted details with pops of pink […]

Let’s talk about Sarah & Blake. Their intimate Loveland wedding was so freaking beautiful and they were so much fun to spend the day with! I met Sarah a few years ago through her sister Kayla, who I used to work with. Both Sarah and Kayla are just the best to be around, and I […]

Mackenzie and Tristan are such wonderful people, getting to spend the day with them was just a dream!  Their Spring LDS temple wedding and reception at Chatfield Botanic Gardens were beautiful from start to finish! We had absolutely amazing weather, just the right about of clouds, and lovely blossoming trees […]

Spring LDS Temple Wedding – Mackenzie & Tristan

Ok, snow. You win this time. Normally when it snows in April (for like the 4th time, what is going on this year?!!?) I’m pissed. I hate snow, let alone snow when I want it to be spring. But this time – this one time – I loved it. It was so beautiful! Big fluffy […]

Back in the day, I used to hate shooting in the wind. And don’t get me wrong, it’s still not my favorite, and I’ll usually still try to reschedule if I know it’s going to be windy. But sometimes I don’t know, and sometimes we can’t reschedule, so we just work with what we got! […]

I couldn’t be more excited to share this wedding. When Kira and Eddie asked me to come along to their St. Lucia destination wedding I almost cried I was so excited. I feel like I’ve been with this couple from the beginning! Ok, ok not from the start of their relationship, but from the start […]

It’s so weird to photography a snowy, winter engagement session one week and then be on a beach photographing a wedding two weeks later! I’ve been editing that beach wedding and this winter engagement session at the same time, and man is it a strange feeling!! But enough about me! Let’s talk about Megan and […]
