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 […]

St. Lucia Destination Wedding – Kira and Eddie

I’m starting to love snow you guys!! Ok, not really, but I do really love snowy engagement sessions! This Bear Lake engagement session with Korynn and Austin was so cold. Like, so cold, you guys.

Bear Lake Engagement Session – Korynn + Austin

We (as in the wedding vendor community) spend so much time talking about the bride that sometimes it’s easy to forget there’s a whole other person involved in a wedding. There’s SO much info out there for brides, and I personally don’t think the groom gets enough attention. After all, this is his day too! […]

My Tribe Part 2 – Carli & Matt What I loved most about Carli and Matt was their laid back approach to their wedding day and that they just wanted to have a good time together. And they definitely pulled it off! Their Fort Collins wedding was so fun, from start to finish. Literally every […]

My Tribe – Carli and Matt

Five years ago, at the top of the world, these two said their “I do’s” and became husband and wife. There wasn’t a dress, or flowers, or cake, all they had was each other. And it was all they needed. Five years and a few kids later, they decided it was time to get the […]

Boulder Wedding Photos – Caitlin and Bryant

Whenever I tell someone I’m a wedding photographer, I almost always get asked, “What’s the craziest wedding you’ve ever been to?” I know it sounds lame, but I have such a hard time answering this question! I’m like…uh…none? I’ve been super lucky with my clients because I’ve never had a crazy bridezilla or seen super […]
