Aubrey + Cameron: Wedding at Castle Cliff Estate

What I love most about running a photography business is the people we’ve met over the years. Folks that either because of our vocations, age differences or any number of other reasons, we never would have met otherwise. To say that Aubrey & Cameron are an amazing couple would be a huge understatement. From the moment we were introduced we knew we were going to LOVE working with these guys. Of course they are one of the most adorable couples you could ever meet but on top of that they are super sweet just like all their family and friends! They were married two weeks ago at a new venue in Sedalia- Castle Cliff Estate. The location is absolutely gorgeous! And if the site itself wasn’t pretty enough the amazing and talented Cydney Johnson of Stiletto Events and Oakes Fields Florist made it even more beautiful with all the details that went into their wedding. Did I mention details?!? Aubrey’s dad MADE the arbor they stood under for the ceremony and that custom cake topper from Kelley Kakes– I want to get married again just to have one made for us 🙂 You might remember that these are the two who mountain bike & dirt bike- both of which are part of my life’s obsession. Of course when they mentioned they had custom dirt bike jerseys for all the groomsmen I was only too happy to add that to the day’s photos. Oh and I cannot forget to mention the coolest get away car ever- a Lamborghini! It was a surprise from Aubrey and the family and Cameron’s reaction was priceless! I could go on and on and on about this wedding but there’s way too many pictures to share so pull up a chair because this post is going to be long 🙂 Congrats Aubrey + Cameron and may God Bless your marriage!!!! We are so happy you chose us to capture this day for you!

Wedding at the Highlands Ranch Mansion: Katie + Tyler

I basically grew up in Highlands Ranch so I probably passed by the Highlands Ranch Mansion more times than I can count over the years. After starting our business it was a location that I hoped one day we’d get to photograph.  Which meant we was really excited to learn that Katie & Tyler were getting married there. I’ve known Katie forever and just a few months back Michelle and I had the pleasure of photographing her brother and sister-in-laws wedding downtown (Brenden & Jess). Katie & Tyler had a little boy the end of last year and oh my gosh is he ADORABLE! While he was sleeping for most picture opportunities we did get a couple of Brent with Katie before the ceremony and a quick one of the three of them together before the night was over. It was a bit chilly for their wedding the first weekend in May but thankfully the snow finally made it’s grand exit the week before ushering in the start of spring and giving us some beautiful green grass for the ceremony outside (even captured some with the horses in the field behind them during the ceremony). We had such a great time working with Katie & Tyler! I love the pics we got of the two of them in between the trees lining the drive up to the mansion- gorgeous! Cydney from Stiletto Events did an amazing job as always with the wedding planning- so glad we’ll be working with her a lot this year! I had a hard time narrowing down which pictures to share but here’s some of our favorite images from the day!

Heather + Peter: Mexico Destination Wedding at The Royal Playa del Carmen

I realize we’re posting a few more pictures this time than usual but it’s not everyday we get the chance to photograph a wedding on the beach in Mexico. While I LOVE living in Colorado and feel very blessed to capture photos for people here in our beautiful state, it’s a pretty awesome experience when you get to work with a couple who flies you to another location to photograph their wedding and who could possibly say no to the beach?! Heather and I went to high school together years ago but it was through Cydney that her and Peter got connected with us. We can’t thank Cydney enough for passing them our way and this opportunity. Heather and Peter are such a sweet couple and we had the most amazing time working with them. In fact I don’t know if I could really even call it “work” at all- it was way too much fun and talk about the ideal “office”! Their wedding was held at The Royal Playa del Carmen where we stayed for a few days leading up to the wedding and I have to say that between our experience at the resort itself and the attention they put into the wedding that I would highly recommend them. Neither Michelle nor I wanted to leave when it came time to go back home 🙁 . Heather and Peter we are so grateful for the opportunity and we’re so happy we got to work with you! We wish you guys a world of happiness!

Christy + Matt: Wedding in Castle Pines

With the unofficial end of summer over Labor Day weekend, it’s the start of a busy fall season with lots of sessions to capture what I believe to be the most beautiful time of the year in Colorado. The fall season kicked off with Christy & Matt’s wedding the first Saturday of September. We have to send a big THANK YOU to Cydney from Stiletto Events for bringing us this cute couple and to Shelly & Dan who hosted the wedding on their gorgeous property in Castle Pines. It was also nice to have such a short drive from our new house to the wedding that day! Cydney did a fabulous job both in planning and with all the decorations for the wedding (no wonder she just earned the honor of 1st Place from the Denver’s A-List this year). I had to include a few extra pictures to share the details that went into the day. They held the ceremony shortly before sunset so immediately after we took the family portraits we caught the last of the sun setting behind the mountains and got the most gorgeous light!! I just love the images we got of Christy & Matt in the sunset. During the reception they opted to go without a tent and instead filled the property with little lights from the ground to the trees which created a very romantic atmosphere that was a lot of fun to photograph. We had a great time and wish Christy & Matt the best. Here’s some of our favorites- enjoy!

Sarah + Luke: Breckenridge Wedding Photography

It’s been a crazy year so far! We FINALLY moved into our new house a week ago- 3 moves in 6 months is not fun to say the least especially when 2 of them were right at the start of the wedding season. So glad to now be moved to a permanent location and we can get back into the routine of things again. The weekend before we moved we headed up to Breckenridge to photograph a wedding we’d been excited about for quite some time- Sarah & Luke’s. We met Luke at his brother Matt & Alyssa’s wedding back in 2009 in Jamaica and had such a great time getting to work with both he and Sarah for their engagement session a few months back. The wedding couldn’t have been at a more beautiful location. The ceremony was held at the Breckenridge Outdoor Education Center which has a lake situated against the mountain backdrop. We had perfect cool mountain temperatures (so nice to escape from the record heat wave down in Denver) and unlike the days leading up to the wedding, no rain to contend with. Other than the bright sun (no smog/ozone to filter through up here) you couldn’t have asked for a better day for a wedding. Their ceremony was one of my favorite to date with Luke’s grandfather, a retired pastor, officiating- how cool is that?! We had a great time that day and got some beautiful images we’re excited to share with them. Here’s some of our favorites we captured throughout the day. God Bless!

Robynn + Kyle: Littleton Colorado Wedding

I absolutely LOVE when we get to photograph at unique locations that you won’t find anyone else getting married at. Last weekend we had the pleasure of photographing Robynn & Kyle’s gorgeous wedding on the mother of the bride’s private property in the outskirts of Littleton. Between the location, the weather, and the beautiful couple we got so many amazing photos! I could probably write an entire post with just the details put into this wedding, almost all of which were handmade by either the bride or friends & family. And how cool are these cakes?! The wedding cake was designed to look like a tree etched with their initials and the grooms cake appropriately had a snowmobile atop the cake (how the happy couple met). We were so glad they trusted us to capture this day for them- it was one of the most fun weddings we’ve gotten to photograph. Robynn & Kyle seemed so relaxed throughout the day and since the wedding was on private property the time constraints weren’t as tight as you’d typically find at a wedding which allowed the events to unfold naturally in a way that made the day flow perfectly and never felt rushed. Robynn has two of the cutest little girls who acted as flower girls in the wedding. Her oldest daughter was hilarious- those are lemons she is making a funny face with! We even got a few shots of them with their dog and attempted a few with Robynn & her horse who was a little freaked out from all the commotion going on and got a little camera shy. The one photo that Robynn really wanted to get was with the guns and I was cracking up while taking these- not your typical wedding dress accessory?? We had such a great time with these two and are so grateful that Heather & Bill referred them to us. I could go on and on but I’ll let the pictures do the rest of the talking.

Cydney + Kiel: Wedding at The Manor House

So this post is going to be a bit longer than usual. For one I’ve known Cydney since we were in elementary school and so I couldn’t have been more thrilled to capture this day for her and Kiel. Secondly, this was the last wedding of the year and we had the most beautiful fall day, a beautiful location, and a beautiful couple to photograph.  Lastly, well Cydney is a wedding planner so this wedding had so many gorgeous details that I had to share Cydney’s talents with future brides and can’t stress enough how much we recommend hiring Cydney! Cydney & Kiel were married last Saturday at The Manor House in Ken Caryl Ranch. The Manor House is one of my favorite locations to photograph for obvious reasons. It’s a beautiful location! We were so fortunate to have such awesome weather the day of the wedding. Besides a little wind (okay a LOT of wind) the weather was perfect for the end of October. Despite the wind the girl’s hair stayed in place all day- big props to Samantha Koch! Cydney & Kiel opted to see each other before the wedding for a “first look” session which provided us with the just the right amount of time to get plenty of pictures in the pre sunset warm light. We took so many amazing pictures it was almost impossible to narrow down which ones to post! And we had the coolest bridal party ever (and cutest groomsdog) which just added to more awesomeness! I could go on and on about all the details of their wedding but I’ll just let the pictures do the talking. We couldn’t be happier for Cydney & Kiel- thanks guys for trusting us to capture this wonderful day for you!
