We barely missed the rain on this shoot! I'm so glad that we caught a break because the cloudy skies made for the most dreamy light. This family worked so easily and quickly with me to capture their photos before the rain came back. One of their older children had been battling cancer and she wanted to snap a few photos without her hair. I was thrilled and in the end I think they are some of the best from this session.

Although the weather turned into blizzard conditions we safely traversed back and forth across the county for this winter wedding. The ceremony was a small one of family and a few close friends and it made for an intimate feel, especially when we returned to the reception site; a cozy cabin home set in the heart of Breckenridge. The bridal party was incredible and not only agreed to it but were also excited to hop into the storm and snag a few snowy photographs. They even started a snowball fight before rushing back into the warmth of the house laughing and brushing off snow. The night ended as family and friends gathered in the cozy log cabin to yummy food, champagne bottles being popped, and a fire crackling in the background. Whenever I left the reception I was welcomed to over 8 inches of snow on the road and light fluffy snowflakes hitting my lashes. I smiled and looked forward to editing the photos from the last few hours. What a lovely wedding.
Prior to their big day, I had been co-workers with Ash and Shea for quite some time. They were consistently a fun, spunky, and adorable couple. I loved hanging out with them and when they told me they were engaged and looking for a photographer, specifically me, I couldn't be more excited! Not only would I get to photograph friends but, I'd also get to photograph a couple that you could literally see the love and happiness emanating from them. Their day was special and unique with lots of little details, friends who traveled across continents, and amazing drinks/eats. Their wedding was held at a location with a restored old barn and dance floor that opened up to the gorgeous mountain background Grandby, Colorado, beholds. Their ceremony was held in front of this lovely backdrop where we also took the majority of their wedding party photos and ended them shortly before a rain shower began. Their reception was filled with delicious food and laughter and they ended the night dancing to the best funky music that their friends got down to. Seriously one of the funnest and easiest weddings I've gotten to be a part of. Brides, get married in this gorgeous state, and ask me to photograph it!
