That photo looks familiar

Of all of the thousands of photos taken at Telluride weddings in a summer, the marketing department at Telluride Ski Resort thought that this photo would be the best for their display ad in Rocky Mountain Bride magazine. From Alisha + Graig’s wedding.

The flying bride of Telluride

“Do-over” is kind of a bad word in the wedding business, but not for Sarah and Rick. Their first wedding was a disaster so on their first anniversary they left their friends and family back east and came to Telluride to have a wedding day re-do for just the two of them. Despite the rain, the whole day was great fun and I am happy that I could help make it a success.

Ouray, Colorado destination wedding photography: Robbie + Chanse

Robbie and Chanse loaded up their Jeep, invited a few close friends and family and drove from their home in North Texas to Ouray, Colorado, to tie the knot in very thin air. The couple had an outdoor ceremony above timberline in Yankee Boy basin, just under the famous cross couloir. After a bit of four-wheeling we rejoined the guests for a low-key reception at the historic Beaumont Hotel.

Telluride, Colorado destination wedding: Alisha + Graig

As regular attendees of the Telluride Film Festival, Denver couple Alisha and Graig fell in love with the small mountain town. They always wanted to share the scenic beauty of Telluride and surrounding San Juan Mountains with their friends and family but could never convince anyone to make the trip…until they got married.

Alisha and Graig not only wanted to show off Telluride, they wanted a wedding that was all their own. Their summer wedding-weekend started off with a Thursday-evening barbeque in Town Park for family and wedding guests from around the country. Friday began with a small, and very blustery, ceremony and cocktail hour atop San Sophia Ridge. Then Alisha, Graig and I set off to take some bride and groom photos at every scenic spot we could think of. It was a long afternoon of picture-taking, good thing we took a break at the Telluride Brewery. The evening finished off with an impromptu reception at Rustico Restaurant.

There were many things to celebrate on Saturday. Not only had Alisha and Graig just tied the knot but it also happened to be my 32nd birthday! The morning began with a nice brunch (for me) and then I met the newly weds and their adventurous guests for a hike up Bear Creek. It was great fun watching Graig offer alternating two-minute piggy-back-rides to at least a dozen children.

After an quick nap and a few more bridal portraits Alisha and Graig made their way to The New Sheridan Bar for a proper reception. There were toasts, dinner, dancing and a cake made of breakfast cereal. Golden Grahams, Raisin Bran and Cocoa Pebbles to be exact. The Raisin Bran turned out to be my favorite, it tasted like carrot cake!

Ouray, Colorado Destination Wedding Photography: Jason + Robin

Jason and Robin live in Alaska but Ouray, Colorado has always been special place to them. They hired Barton Glasser Photography to shoot their late April destination wedding at the historic Beaumont Hotel. This two were so head-over-heels in love that they could barely keep their hands off each other during the ceremony!

Summer Fashion Photoshoot

People often ask me what I am doing when I am not photographing weddings. The short answer is A LOT. I’ve always felt that it is always better to show rather than tell so here are a few photos from a recent fashion shoot featuring clothing from downtown Montrose retailers for Montrose Style Magazine.

Montrose Wedding Photography: Nick + Sara

Nick and Sara are great people and, like most great people, they have a lot of friends. So many friends attended their wedding at Nick’s father’s Montrose Home that it was filled to near bursting. The mid-afternoon ceremony was short and sweet with plenty of overtures to Nick’s Scottish heritage. A reception in Elk’s Park followed where there was plenty of dancing and mingling and Nick, a local restauranteur, and his staff had prepared a delicious feast for everyone.

Ouray Wedding Photography: John+Susan

John and Susan wanted a small, intimate mountain wedding and that is exactly what they had on a recent summer road trip from their home in Chicago to Salt Lake City. They were married on the steps at the historic Beaumont Hotel in Ouray, Colorado by a friend who was an officiant. After the ceremony I loaded the entire wedding party up in my Subaru (did I mention this was a small wedding?) and drove them up the Million Dollar Highway for some portraits and sightseeing. They wanted some shots with some old mining shacks so we stopped at Ironton Park and made some nice images and they played a song for me at the historic town site under the sweeping views of the Western San Juan Mountains.
