Eagle, CO Intimate Wedding

Imagine waking up at your home in Eagle, CO overlooking the hills where you would later hike to exchange vows. Let me paint the picture of Aubrey and Jonas’s wedding day.  It was a bluebird Colorado day in October.  Each of them had a dear friend present and Jonas’s parents were also there to share the day.  Some very touching FaceTimes to siblings were made before they shared their first look.  The temperature was a perfect, the last comfortable warm fall day of the season.   All in attendance hiked to a gorgeous vista where the most beautiful vows were exchanged while the couple self officiated their ceremony.  The reception was held on the bistro light lit patio of their home and the first dance covered their feet in paint.  Each guest had a folded up piece of paper where they had scrawled some thoughts to share over a toast.  This was a special one.  Capturing this day was an honor for me.  Make sure to check out their wedding film captured by the talented Mark Blake by The West.

Intimacy and adventure is what I am all about. I absolutely love families who are just fun, who are real and let it fly.  I want to see you!  They don’t mind if they get their dress dirty. They may be down for a short hike and are not afraid of getting in the water at the end of your session, you are my people. They don’t mind if things don’t go perfectly and that is just perfect. 

The best parts of life are the parts that surprise us, and the best photos are usually the ones we didn’t know were coming.
