Anatomy of an Image #16

It’s been a little while since I did one of these anatomy posts, so I wanted to start back up with a pretty abstract image. I was photographing the couple posing on the banks of the Eagle River in Beaver Creek, Colorado. I was getting some nice full body shots of the couple and their reflection in the river, but I wanted to try something a little more abstract. I found a place where the water was still enough to try to get a clear reflection, but still had enough movement to allow some motion blur of the aspen leaves swirling in an eddy.

Venue: Beaver Creek Chapel

Kristine and Alan planned an intimate winter wedding in Beaver Creek Colorado with close family and friends. I think winter weddings in Colorado are some of my favorite to photograph. The light is usually softer and lower in the sky, the contrast between snow and earth, and the intimacy of winter, all contribute to making winter weddings a joy to be part of.

Lionscrest is a beautiful and elegant venue, and the couple clearly put a lot of thought into making guests feel welcome and comfortable with a family style meal of steak and salmon. After the wedding, they were off to honeymoon in Europe visiting Croatia, Montenego, Solvenia and Italy.
