Colorado Springs Wedding Photography | Melissa + Chris

Happy Tuesday!

I wanted to share some photos from a recent June wedding we photographed in Colorado Springs. Melissa + Chris are a perfect pair – they are incredibly light hearted and fun but also ridiculously head-over-heels, passionately in-love. The ceremony was held in beautiful Shove Chapel on the CC campus, followed by a sunset reception at Briarhurst Manor. For most of the day it looked like we might get some rain – but it held off – and the lighting proved to be magical! Chris + Melissa are not only incredibly sweet themselves – but their families and friends are so kind and warm – this was the most dance-filled reception Nathan and I have ever been to – quite impressive! Overall, this was a perfect summer wedding – beautiful details, a gorgeous couple in-love and a REALLY fun reception. Melissa + Chris – we wish you all the happiness in the world!

Longmont Colorado Wedding Photography – Eddie + Natalie

Happy summertime everyone! I haven’t blogged at all the past few months – as I’ve enjoyed days at the park, taking care of our garden, traveling to Europe with Nathan (London, Paris, Disneyland Paris and Copenhagen)! I’ll have to post something soon and share some of our fun photos from the trip. Life is good right now …. really, really good.

I wanted to share a few of my favorite photos from a Longmont wedding we photographed back in April. Natalie and Eddie are two of the most genuine people we’ve met as clients – they love each other, have built a beautiful life together and they are so much fun to be around! Spending the day with them was enjoyable and we’re so thankful they allowed us to capture it!

San Diego 30th Birthday Weekend

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! I hope you are able to snuggle up with someone you love tonight… or if there isn’t a special someone – snuggle up with a good movie, bottle of wine and know that they’re out there somewhere probably doing the same thing tonight, thinking of you.

I wanted to share some fun photos from last weekend. Nathan and I met our besties, Chris and Ashley in San Diego to celebrate my 30th birthday! We rented a cool modern house in the Pacific Beach Hills Neighborhood – and let me tell you, I’m now a fan of house rental vs hotel. We slept in each day, went to Trader Joes, cooked a fresh breakfast at the house and sat outside to enjoy it with palm trees in the backyard… it was delightful. Not only did we enjoy walking on the beaches of La Jolla looking for seals, getting our nails done (Ashley +I), finding the best sushi ever, wandering around a winery + vineyard …. but we had the best quality time (which was a rare treat as Chris and Ashley live in Dallas and we live in Denver). I’m already missing the sounds of the waves crashing and the warmth of that perfect San Diego sunshine. Here are a few of my favorite photos from the weekend:

Happy Wednesday! 

I have to admit, I’m not the best blogger (you’re saying, “yeah, we know.”). I’m trying to get better at it… it’s actually sort of a New Year’s resolution to blog more frequently. I realized today that I never blogged an August wedding (oops!) – that was full-on Western and too fun not to share! Cowboy boots, hay bales, wild flowers galore, country music, horses …. a perfect Colorado summer wedding! This wedding was especially nice for me because I had gone to high school with the bride + groom and got to see so many people that I haven’t seen in forever!

Sarah + Matt’s western wedding was the definition of celebration from start to finish! The wedding was held at Sarah’s parent’s house out in the country … wide open fields, horses, cows, big trucks + hot rods – so fun! The benefit of a backyard wedding, is that you can be as laid back as you want to be… no restrictions with a venue/caterer, flexible timeline, and dancing into the night without having to cut anything short. Sarah + Matt truly tailored their wedding to fit their personalities and their story. Matt + his groomsmen arrived to the ceremony site by horseback, while Sarah + her bridesmaids each arrived in different hot rods! Their ceremony was sweet + intimate, with fun moments + laughs .. it was a joy to photograph!

The reception was nothing but fun – country music, BBQ, cupcakes and a gorgeous, warm summer night.

Nathan + I were honored to be apart of your special day, Matt + Sarah! Here are a few of my favorite photos! Enjoy!
