Jewish Wedding in Colorado | Wedding Photography at Arrowhead Golf Club

I
get to share a really special couple on the blog today. Dan is one of my husband's oldest and best friends and he recently married Jen at Arrowhead Golf Club. Dan and Jen have a storybook romance straight out of a romantic comedy. You see, they first met way back in 1992 in German class at Heritage High School in Littleton, Colorado. But despite having crushes on each other way back in the day, they never acted on it then. Flash forward about 23 years and they reconnect using the power of the internet (thanks, Facebook!) and start talking again. They end up going on a date and after about a year together, decide to get married. I don't normally get to have this much insight into my couples back story, but because of my husband I got to hear that Dan was the guy from their friend group who all of the ladies always liked (Umm...look at those luscious 90's heart throb locks!) and Jen was the pretty and sweet homecoming queen. I just love stories like this where a couple finds their way back to each other after all that time. It's like coming home. I also love that they chose to get married at what is surely the most dramatic and pretty venue in their entire hometown of Littleton, Colorado. Arrowhead Golf Course is always a pleasure to photograph with its gorgeous rugged red rock formations jutting out from the edge of the foothills. And I love that Jen included her Jewish heritage into their wedding ceremony. They stood under the Chuppah (which they changed to be indoors because of the heat that day), signed the marriage contract (ketubah), and together with Dan both stomped on the glass at the end (my favorite touch which Geoff and I also did at our wedding 5 years ago!)  
It was a wonderful wedding day which I was so happy to get to be a part of. I wish Jen & Dan many happy years of marriage together! (And I also hope that they don't kill me for sharing a couple of photos that I stole from Geoff's 1996 senior yearbook! Haha)

Breckenridge Family Photographer | Lomax Placer Mine & Country Boy Mine

I
headed up to good ol' Summit County last week to meet this awesome family who was visiting all the way from Texas for a family vacation together in Breckenridge, Colorado. We made plans to photograph them starting at the Lomax Placer Mine which is just a tiny drive up the hill on Ski Hill Road and has really cute old log cabins and random mining equipment laying around. We photographed there first for a little bit and then were planning to head over to the Edwin Carter Museum to get a little bit of a mountain view for them. However, I had a little bit more time to explore on this day before we met and I discovered that if you drive up to the Country Boy Mine trailhead there are pretty epic views of the mountains there plus a cool looking old mine. So we finished off our session there instead. I had so much fun laughing and hanging out with this crew. I hope they had a blast hanging out with each other in the mountain scenery of Breckenridge!

Colorado Mountain Wedding in Estes Park | Della Terra Mountain Chateau

K
atherine 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!

Summer Family Photos at South Valley Park | Colorado Family Photographer

T
oday on the blog is a seriously cute and smiley little guy photographed with his family here in Colorado. Not just mom and dad, but grandpa, grandma, and his uncle too! They like the look of the red rock formations so we decided to go check out South Valley Park down in Littleton as an alternative to the more well-known (but always crowded) Red Rocks. I'm so glad we did because it looked gorgeous that evening. It had been a bit windy and rainy earlier that day but by the time we met all was calm and we got the prettiest soft pink sunset light by the end. I love what we got for them!
