How do I even begin to describe Ash and Phil’s Seawell Grand Ballroom DCPA Wedding? The mother-of-the-bride, Lisa Cook of Affair with Flair, is one of the best of the best at putting on stylish weddings and events in Colorado. Ash, the bride, is the ‘Ash’ of Ash & Dans – running her own stylish fashion business in New York City. And Phil, the groom, well… he’s a Jets fan.
AH! I can’t believe I haven’t posted this one yet!! Stephanie and Samuel’s wedding at the Broadmoor in Colorado Springs last fall was OFF. THE. CHARTS. Or, ‘on fleek’ as my daughter might say?! (I may have passed the age where I can say those words and be taken seriously…) Anyway, you’ll see for yourself in the images below. And by ‘images’ I mean a whole lotta them. It’s so hard to narrow down all the photos I love!
It’s always a thrill to walk down the magazine aisle at my local bookstore or past the magazine rack at my grocery store down the street and see my clients’ beautiful weddings on display on newsstands there – and now it’s just happened for the 18th time! Of course I must confess to a bit of pride as well in seeing my photography work published in vibrant color too – thereby providing visual inspiration for all the brides and grooms-to-be! And 18 times… I feel honored. Back when I was first starting out in 2006 I wasn’t sure that it would ever happen, but check out this stack!!
I’m so excited to show off these images from Laura and Willi’s winter wedding in Aspen Colorado! We had snow, snowcat rides and gondola rides, dogs, two ceremonies, best friends, black and white winter wear, cigars around the fire, and an elegant dinner at the St. Regis in Aspen to top it all off. Where shall we begin!?
About 2 weeks ago I took a little trip to celebrate with Jenna and Nick their incredible wedding in McCall Idaho at Lake Shore Lodge. Jenna’s grandmother has a home in McCall and this was the site of many summer vacations for Jenna and her family. So this little getaway destination holds a very special place in Jenna’s heart, and now all the more so as her and Nick created some new memories there.
Jonathan took Danielle to Iceland for a little vacation. Then on Saturday, while standing at the top of ‘Hallgrimskirkja’ and with the help of a local planner, he got down on one knee and proposed, to an icelandic love song playing on the sound system. Afterward, they were greeted with champagne to celebrate and he told her that he’d also hired a photographer, and a florist, and an officiant – and the destination wedding in Reykjavik Iceland was on… for Monday!
Sunday I met up with the two of them and we cruised around Reykjavik for some engagement photos – even if the engagement would only last 1 day! We returned to the scene of the proposal – Hallgrimskirkja, then went down in the harbor where they have this iron sculpture of a viking ship. Not that you can tell from the angle of these images, but it looked like a bunch of giant, mangled, forks.
So, how did I end up doing Fayetteville Arkansas engagement photos? Well, last week I had the wonderful privilege of traveling to Arkansas for a family wedding and while I was there I had the further privilege to meet up with Betsy and Craig who are getting married in Aspen, Colorado later this summer but who live in Rogers, Arkansas. What a fun opportunity to do an engagement session with both of them among the green, rolling hills of Northwest Arkansas!
While snow was falling on their home in Denver, Colorado, Shayna and Josh were celebrating their Tulum Mexico wedding surrounded by family and friends – underneath the warm, Mexican sun with white sand between their toes. If you listen close you’ll hear steel drums and the crashing of waves.
This Thorncrown Chapel wedding in Eureka Springs, Arkansas was an extra special one for me as the groom just happens to be a Wilson! That’s right, our groom, Landon, is my cousin and it was so exciting to see him marry Jessica who, as it turns out, is a super sweet person too! I’m so happy for both of them!
The Thorncrown Chapel is a pretty incredible church there in Northwest Arkansas. They call it the ‘glass chapel’ because nearly all of the walls and roof are made of glass. Put it in the middle of the woods and among the rolling hills of the Ozarks and Wow! What a ceremony site!
