Manor Lodge Elopement, Vail, CO

Kelly was warmed by a fire as she got ready with her sisters in Manor Vail Lodge, a light snow fell outside her window.  Chasz waited patiently to exchange vows on the penthouse deck.  The two shared the most beautiful vows, there were no dry eyes; the officiant, wedding planner and myself all were brought to tears.  After the ceremony we took a walk to the covered bridge in Vail and shared a few moments before I sent them off for their wedding dinner.  It was a perfect winter’s day to tie the knot.  Check out their video on the videography page of my website.

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.
