Katherine and Brent were married over Memorial Day weekend at Della Terra Mountain Chateau. This gorgeous Colorado mountain wedding venue is nestled underneath a breathtaking rugged mountain rock face right across the street from the Fall River Visitors Center and entrance to one of the Estes Park sides of Rocky Mountain National Park. With a venue right there at a national park, it's no wonder that a herd of deer dreamily grazed in the backdrop during their wedding ceremony as they proclaimed their vows in front of all of their friends and family. And it was certainly fairytale-esque when the day's fairly heavy rain cleared up just in time for the outdoor ceremony. In fact, the weather remained pretty nice with no more precipitation for the whole rest of the evening. Hosting your wedding at the front steps of a national park pretty much guarantees gorgeous photos in a Colorado forest complete with silly wild turkeys roaming around. As if all of the natural features weren't enough, Della Terra had plenty of beautiful architecture and man-made features to add to the beauty of Katherine and Brent's wedding day scenery. It was the perfect wedding day full of good friends, laughter and good cheer with a lot of love coming from their families. Congratulations to the happy married couple!

One last sweet moment:)
As I was prepping the photos for today's wedding preview I realized that the couple featured in the first wedding of the season this year has something very sweet in common with the last wedding couple I photographed last season. And that sweet something is a new baby to add to their families. I love photographing new families and it's particularly adorable when it's because mom and dad are getting married! This darling little baby boy shown quite a bit in the picture below is such a little lovebug. He's mastered the art of waving goodbye and it was so hard to restrain myself from pinching those scrumptious little baby cheeks of his. And his mommy and daddy are such a good-looking and loving couple. They were so lucky that their wedding day turned out to be beautiful since it's always a weather risk when getting married in Colorado in the middle of March. It was so sunny and warm on the day of their wedding that I kept thinking I was photographing a summer wedding. They were married at Christ on the Mountain Catholic Church in Lakewood and after the ceremony we headed out to capture some portraits at Red Rocks. Once we finished with those we headed on to the Evergreen lake house where the reception took place. With friends and family at their side and incredibly nice weather it truly couldn't have been a better day to get married! Congratulations to this delightful little family and here's to a bright and happy future for them!
One of my favorites!

Wow, it's already New Year's Eve and and I find myself compiling all of my favorite images created for clients throughout the year. This is one of my favorite blog posts to create every year because I get to look back and remember all of the wonderful people I've met. I'm so thankful for what I do and for the trust that is placed in me to capture these family memories for so many. I want to thank all of my clients from 2016 and from year's past for your business. Here's to a 2017 as good as 2016!
Corey and Kevin were married back in mid-November at the Lodge and Spa at Breckenridge at a time when it's normally pretty cold and also snowy but this year has been different and they actually had a fairly warm wedding day up in the mountains of Colorado. Or at least warm enough to host their ceremony out on the deck with the sweeping views of the Colorado mountains with their closest family and friends as witnesses (and their adorable dog, Baxter too!) After the ceremony we attempted to get some nice family portraits outside with the mountain backdrop, but the freezing wind had picked up by then and we moved the rest of the family photos inside in front of the cozy fireplace. After Corey and Kevin had a chance to warm up and mingle with their guests for a little we headed back outside to create some nice wedding day portraits at sunset. It was a wonderful wedding day full of love and I'm pleased to share a handful of my favorites below. Congratulations to Corey & Kevin!
