I'm so glad you are here to check out some recent work. I'm a Colorado wedding photographer that shoots all around the country. The blog is filled with full wedding and portrait sessions, and includes weddings planning tips and inspiration.
Mel and Quinn were so excited to have their families meet them in their new home state of Colorado. The two met in high school back in Chicago, and their love eventually landed them in the mountains. It was fitting to have a more intimate elopement-style wedding with their immediate family in Colorado, and continue the party in their home state at a later date.
The pair got ready in Bachelors Gulch, where they also saw each other for a first look amongst the aspens. From there everyone traveled to Julia’s deck, located at the top of Shrine Pass. With views of the 14er Mount of the Holy Cross in the distance, they shared their vows. It was so special for their family to be able to stand so close to them and hear their words. Once they were pronounced husband and wife, they popped a bottle of champagne with everyone to celebrate!
Mel and Quinn spent some time with me up on Shrine Pass before meeting their family back in Beaver Creek to get ready for dinner. Everyone took a shuttle up the mountain to Beano’s Cabin where we were all treated to a 5 course private dinner. The evening was probably the best Colorado night we have had all year long. It wasn’t too hot, but wasn’t chilly either. Mel and Quinn hopped around the fields up at Beano’s with me one more time in between courses, and they finished the night with a few speeches from family members. It was the most perfect evening!
