Windance Cabin Elopement, Sweetwater, CO

This was a special one.  Justine and Austin contacted me a while back, we discussed their elopement at the Windance Cabin in Sweetwater, Colorado.  We chatted about their vision for their day, photography, who would be attending and all the other important details.  Between our initial conversation and the wedding day I found out they were expecting and that was a big surprise!  What an incredible time in their lives, finding the love of your life and bringing a beautiful new life into the world.  If there is one thing that is even better than a wedding, it’s a baby.  🙂  These two exchanged vows at 8,500 feet overlooking the mountains of Vail Valley, horses roamed free range on the ranch, snow blanketed the landscape, it was an absolutely picture perfect March day.  Four of their close friends made dinner for them and were there to share in the joy of their ceremony.  The six friends toasted the ceremony and it was an absolutely magical day.

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.
