Josh + Tay chose to have an intimate mountainside Colorado wedding and let me tell ya, it was perfection as in it turned out AMAZING!

When I arrived at the base of the mountain it was raining cats and dogs and we had no idea if the sky would clear up at all. The forecast said 100% rain all through night but everyone was staying positive and thank goodness the rain stopped just long enough for the celebration.

I felt so blessed to be able to capture such a sweet day. Josh + Tay have been together since they were kids and obviously have so much love for each other. You could literally feel the emotion and anticipation throughout the day, it was beautiful.

P.S. 10/10 would recommend having a taco bar on your wedding day!

Josh + Tay — keep rocking on!

I always always want to be improving the craft and art of taking photos. There are so many things that go into being a career elopement + intimate wedding photographer; the business side of things, like boring stuff with paying taxes, self-employment taxes, social security etc. There’s the part of marketing your brand, creating content, posting and sharing work. There’s the part of communicating affectively, planning, being organized, scouting and basically TRYING to be good at all the things.

There is also the part of simply taking the photographs, which is something I never ever want to be stagnant. There are plenty of photographers that will show up, do the routine and be done with it, which isn’t a bad thing but it’s not the direction I want my photography work to go. I think a level of comfortability and routine is a good thing, but can be dangerous if one gets too comfortable and never tries anything new or puts the time in to keep learning and improving.

Which brings up the importance of photographing work for fun and setting up sessions to simply practice the art and skill of taking photos. It’s an opportunity to play with double exposures, lighting, shutter speeds, bad weather, motion and FILM! I shot a roll of film for this particular photo session in Colorado and just am waiting to get it developed from Indie Film Lab (shameless plug)

So I’m extra thankful for couples like Katie + Kevin that will brave being in front of the camera even in some gnarly Colorado weather. Ya’ll are amazing and I can’t thank you enough!

And thank you Brianna for the beautiful bouquet! If you’re looking for someone in Colorado to create some beautiful florals or just want to see amazing arrangements, go here:
