Cate and Dan’s Arapahoe Basin Wedding

Location: Black Mountian Lodge, Arapahoe Basin, Colorado

Cate and Dan are from right here in Breckenridge, Colorado. It’s always great to have an opportunity to work for local couples. They chose one of my all time favorite wedding venues for there ceremony and reception. Arapahoe Basin has some really incredible and rugged scenery which makes a perfect photography background, especially at sunset. Continue reading »

Steve and Kelly’s Frisco, Colorado Wedding

I met Kelly at least a decade ago when we were both working at a wedding in Summit County together. I was really honored when Kelly asked me to photograph her and Steve’s wedding this year. I loved that they decided to do a DIY ceremony at the Frisco Gazebo, followed by dinner at one of my favorite restaurants, Bagalis. Then they topped it off with a reception at Summit County’s best music Venue, 10 Mile Music Hall. I really liked how they invited the entire community to the reception. Continue reading »

Jeff and Jacqueline’s Sapphire Point Wedding

Location: Sapphire Point, Breckenridge, Colorado

Jeff and Jacqueline came here from Alabama to have and amazing mountain elopement ceremony at the Sapphire Point overlook in Breckenridge, Colorado. It was just me and the two of them for the ceremony and the photos afterward. Incidentally, did you know that Colorado is one of only a handful of states that allows couple to self solemnize their marriage without a third party officiant? It’s one of the reasons Colorado is so popular for elopements. 

One of my favorite moments from the wedding is when a chipmunk decided to pop over and inspect the bride’s bouquet. Continue reading »

Lizzy and Ben’s Crested Butte Wedding

Location: Mountain Wedding Garden, Crested Butte, Colorado

Coordinator: Krysta with Elevation Weddings and Events

Photo Booth: Reel Mobile Photos

I met Lizzy and Ben about a year before their wedding when I did their engagement photos in Breckenridge. It gave us a lot of time to plan before their summer wedding in Crested Butte, Colorado. 
Crested Butte is one of the most beautiful towns in all of Colorado (and possibly all of the US. One of my favorite things about this wedding was that rain storms were coming and going throughout the day. As Coloradans, they knew not to worry because storms blow in and out quickly. It gave us the best of both worlds: clear skies for their ceremony and beautiful clouds for sunset photos afterwards. Continue reading »

Kevin and Kelly’s Sedona Arizona Wedding

Location: Slide Rock State Park
Planner/Coordinator: Roma Sumra
Videographer: Jack Schwitz
Florist: Sedona High Mountain Flowers
Music: Peaks Pro Events
Catering: Cloth and Flame
Cake: Nothing Bundt Cake
Invitations: Zazzle.com

Kevin has been a good friend and climbing partner since we attended college together. He is also a well known adventure travel photographer. So when he asked me to photograph his wedding, I can’t even describe how honored I was. 

Photographing another photographer’s wedding can both a blessing and a curse. On one hand, they tend to pick exciting locations and know what time of day is going to produce the best light. On the other hand, the expectations are ridiculously high, and there is a lot of pressure to deliver exceptional images. 

On an interesting side note, my wife, Carin, and I were traveling in the Dolomites region of Northern Italy the same week that Kevin and Kelly were doing their honeymoon there. We ended up meeting for a day of via ferrata climbing with them near Arco, Italy. I included some of the photos from that.

Catherine and Matt’s Arapahoe Basin Wedding

Venue: Arapahoe Basin Black Mountain Lodge

Music and MC: Drew Reges

 

I always love photographing Arapahoe Basin Weddings. Black Mountain Lodge is a wonderful mid size venue, and the views are really out of this world. I was pretty excited when Catherine and Matt approached me about photographing their wedding at Arapahoe Basin. During the short summer season, there are wildflowers everywhere here, and the sunsets are pretty spectacular. One of the things I enjoyed most about this wedding is how Catherine and Matt really took care of their guests. They had yard games and s’mores outside for the kids, a late night snack bar for people that got hungry later, and quiet areas for people who didn’t want to dance. They also included functional wedding favors like sunglasses. They also picked the perfect time of day for pictures. Continue reading »

Shane and Mallorie’s Breckenridge Wedding

Location: Silverthorne Pavilion
Planner/Coordinator: Ariel Strickler

Shane and Mallorie met at Colorado State University where they were both Music Education majors. Shane was one year ahead of her in the program, and they were in the wind ensemble and marching band together. One day, after wind ensemble rehearsal, Shane walked up to her and said, “Hi Mallorie, I’m Shane!” and the rest is history. Shane proposed to Mallorie on her 25th birthday. She had opened all of her presents from her family and was getting ready to end her day when Shane announced he had one more present, pulled out a ring, and proposed! Continue reading »
