Wedding in Golden, Colorado - Stephanie and Mike

Stephanie and Mike chose a remote cabin in the woods, just outside of Golden near Denver for their sunset wedding. With a small group of family in attendance, they had their ceremony on the cabins back deck looking out over the town of Boulder and it's city lights.

Following the ceremony, we set off down the dirt road to grab some photos of Stephanie and Mike as newlyweds.  The wind picked up suddenly and we were able to capture some moody Wuthering Heights type shots! Unfortunately, the temps dropped as well so we only lasted about 10 minutes out there.  We headed back to the cabin where they could warm back up again and party the night away with loved ones.  It was a gorgeous day and as always, it was an honor to play a part in it.

Vail Family Photos - East Vail

There's a spot on the Vail Golf Course that has the most amazing views of The Gore Range.  It's one of the most popular spots to shoot in the valley and it's not uncommon for several photographers to be shooting there at the same time.  The biggest problem though, is that the spot only works well for photos early in the morning.  If you're shooting after 11am, you're guaranteed to get photos with squinting clients.

Thankfully, Jenna and Jeret were happy to meet me before the sun had come up over the mountains.  With a brand new frost on the ground, we headed out to the golf course to grab some photos.  Unfortunately, it was also freezing cold which obviously can be hard for little people.  We rushed through the mountain shots as quickly as possible and before we knew it, the sun was up and everyone was happy by the time we finished up.

Vail Family Photos - East Vail - Kruger Family

The Kruger's were coming in from out of town to have their photos taken and they arrived a couple of hours earlier than we had scheduled.  They called to see if I could come a little earlier, but I had my oldest son Maxwell with me.  They weren't perturbed at all and told me to bring him along.   While Maxwell was a very handy assistant, he did manage to walk into a few of the shots during the Kruger's session.  I've photoshopped him out of one of the photos below.  See if you can spot it!

One member of the Kruger Family ripped their jeans all the way from zipper to knee during their shoot too!  It was probably one of the funniest things that's ever happened on a shoot.  This one might be a harder one to spot, but see if you can figure it out.

Beaver Creek Family Photos - Miller Ranch Open Space

I had done a couple's session for Sarah and Jesse a couple of years ago, so I was excited when they decided to book a fall session with their children and brand new fur baby.  With the whole family in tow, we headed to the Miller Ranch Open Space in Edwards.  The Open Space has spectacular views of Beaver Creek, along the Eagle River.  If you can time it right with the leaves, it's the perfect spot for fall pictures. 

If you're wondering about the best colors to wear for fall photos, these guys had a great combo.  Blue and white for the neutral tones and dark red for the accent color.  It worked perfectly with all of the yellow. 

These are a few of my favorite shots from their session.

Vail Elopement - Betty Ford Alpine Gardens - Megan and Matt

As a general rule of thumb, I don't shoot large weddings.  We have an over-saturation of wedding photographers here in Colorado and most of them are going after the big accounts.  After working in the wedding industry for a few years, I knew that big weddings weren't going to be my thing once I started my photography business.  I sure do love shooting small weddings and elopements though!

When Megan and Matt asked me to shoot their elopement at The Betty Ford Alpine Gardens, I was more than happy to help them out.  It was an honor to be trusted to shoot such an intimate experience, especially because we didn't get to meet beforehand.  Their ceremony was beautiful, with lots of tears and laughter.  Mother nature turned it on that day too.  Fresh snow on the Gore Range, loads of sunshine and leaves at their peak.

Vail Family Photos - Vail Mountain - Rodriguez Family

There's a day that usually only happens once a year here in Vail.  You can't really plan for it and you certainly can't schedule your family photos for the day it will happen.  It's the day that the leaves are at their peak and fresh snow has fallen.

Landscape photographers live for this day.  They'll be up at 4am and by mid-afternoon, their spectacular images will be all over social media.  Given that my clients usually book a couple of weeks and in advance, it can be hard to schedule your session for these conditions.  The Rodriguez Family won the lottery though!

It was still warm enough that they didn't have to wear big bulky jackets, and there was still enough snow on the ground to get some fun images.  If you take a look at the last photos, you can see how much snow had melted by the end of the session.  It was such a fleeting moment and I'm so glad that such a sweet family were able to take advantage of it.

Vail Engagement Photos - East Vail - Kim and Bradon

I was recently staying right in the heart of downtown Houston and talking to a friend who lives there.  He told me that during the summer months in Houston, there's a significant decrease in traffic and pedestrians in the city because so many people leave to escape the heat.  I can attest to the fact that a ton of Houstonians migrate to Vail for the summer to take advantage of our cooler summers. 

Kim and Bradon were recently visiting Vail from Houston and decided to take their engagement photos while they were here.  With their cute pup Shipley in tow, we set off down the East Vail bike path to take in the views and grab some shots.  We got some great shots and as you can see, Shipley completely stole the show!
