In honor of my best friend Mandy getting married tomorrow I thought I would share my favorites from their downtown Phoenix engagement session. I grew up in Phoenix and became friends with Mandy right out of high school.
Jenna & Tom flew in from Illinois to have their engagement session in Breckenridge. They originally were going to get married in Keystone, but due to circumstances they couldn’t change they decided to get married near their home town.
It took me three years of shooting weddings to finally shoot a same sex wedding. I hadn’t had the opportunity until I met the lovely Erika & Lindsay! I met these two for the first time during their engagement session and they had me laughing as soon as I got out of my car.
Kelsey & Justin are a couple that you can’t help but smile the entire time you are around. They got married at the beautiful YMCA of the Rockies last year and Pink Diamond Events helped pull it off flawlessly.
Thao & Daniel's wedding this past fall at Sanctuary Golf Course was beautiful. The day started with a tea ceremony at Thao's parents house. This was my first time capturing a tea ceremony and it was so joyful I could feel the happy energy all around.
Sarah & Ross had an engagement session like no other. We literally were in a cloud for the second half of taking photos. The clouds totally ruined the views we were supposed to see, but I wouldn't change it for anything.
Lena & Mark got married at Mount Vernon Country Club this past summer. The day started at their beautiful home in Denver where Lena got ready and I got to hang with their adorable pup (and take photos of course).
Bree & Matt can be described in one word, adventurous. Their wedding at Evergreen Lake House was as adventurous as it gets. A ceremony in a thunderstorm that started with lightning and ended with a rainbow.
I can't say it enough, Lyon's Farmette is one of my favorite venues in Colorado. The staff, the alpacas, okay all the animals, the huge trees, the flower gardens...everything combined makes you feel a sense of home when you walk onto their property.
Rachel & Holt live in Corpus Christi, TX but were drawn to Colorado to get married in our mountains. Before their winter wonderland wedding this coming January at Devil's Thumb Ranch we had to capture their engagement photos.
Sara & Trey got married earlier this summer at Boulder Country Club. It was a beautiful day with endless smiles.These out-of-towner's flew in from Minnesota and Mississippi to get married in Sara's hometown of Boulder.
Carissa & Pete are the coolest couple. If you have a dog and don't mind crazy wind in your hair then you are my people. Also if you stub your toe before the first photo is even taken and you keep on smiling thats a bonus (sorry Pete for your bloody toe!)
Sarah & Ryan had a beautiful Colorado Springs wedding this past June! I had never photographed an Air Force Academy Chapel wedding, so I was super excited to see this amazing work of architecture. It did not disappoint, the vibrant colors inside the chapel had me in awe.
Back in May I did a styled shoot for Rocky Mountain Bride and a team of amazing vendors. It was a Fourth of July themed at The Barn at Raccoon Creek. Every detail was beautiful. It was a blast to be a part of. Check out all the red, white and blue!
Ali & Aaron grew up in the same town, but met at Oktoberfest in Germany. Life works in mysterious ways because now these two are married! They flew in from Texas to get married at The Little Mountain Lodge in Breckenridge. A huge home perfect for a wedding.
