Katye and Matt – Breckenridge, Colorado


Katye and Matt had an intimate ceremony in a luxurious home with a deck over looking the Ten Mile Range in Breckenridge, Colorado. They were so much fun to photograph, and we ended up getting in Matt’s car and driving up a dirt road to find some gorgeous fall colors to photograph in.

Kurt and Natalie’s Silverthorne, Colorado Wedding


Location: Private Residence in Silverthorne, Colorado

Kurt and Natalie contacted me about photographing their smaller destination wedding in Silverthorne, Colorado. They both grew up and live in my home state of Illinois, but came here because the love the mountains as much as I do. Their parents, siblings, and friends traveled here as well, and they rented a large house over looking a lake in Silverthorne, with an amazing view of Buffalo Mountain in the background.

Jill and Brandon’s Colorado Springs Wedding

Venue: El Paso Club

Jill and Brandon are both Air Force pilots, and met in the service. I was thrilled at the opportunity to photograph their wedding reception in Colorado Springs as well as a day before shoot in Breckenridge. One of my favorite things about this couple was just how fun and easy going they were, but at the same time, they knew exactly what they wanted out of their 1920’s themed reception. I had a lot of fun playing off of the twenties theme with a lot of film noir type images.

Kyle proposed to Katie on a vacation to Hawaii in 2013. They both had a lot of roots in Breckenridge, Colorado, so they decided to return here for their wedding at the rustic Dry Gulch Placer venue.

It was times just right, as the groom’s mother was doing a reading from the lyrics of John Denver’s Perhaps Love, featuring lyrics about thunder.
