Laura and Gabriel | Boulder Wedding Photography

In Colorado the story of the day can revolve around the weather. You can set your watch to the afternoon showers that occur in the high country. Laura and Gabriel had a small intimate wedding with right around 50 guests in attendance. Everything took place at a large house they rented through airbnb. The preparations, the details, the table settings, the ceremony, and the reception all took place on the sprawling Boulder property. 15 minutes before the ceremony the heavy rains began. Plan B was to do the ceremony in the basement of the house (gulp). Luckily for everyone the bride and groom patiently waited out the storm which lasted maybe 15-20 minutes. The clouds parted and the couple went through with the original plan and we all witnessed one of the most personal and emotionally rich ceremonies I have seen in my 10 years as a wedding photographer.

Brittany and Stephen | Treasure Island, Florida

The forecast called for rain. Rain all day. While having breakfast before the wedding the down pour started and continued through lunch. Nobody traveled all the way to Treasure Island, FL. located off the coast of the Gulf of Mexico to see a beach wedding get moved to an indoor location. As Brittany got ready in her hotel room we watched the rain go from heavy, to light, to just a drop here and there and as the ceremony began the clouds parted and created a spectacular view for Brittany and Stephens guests and…their photographer. 

Favorites of 2016

Another year of photographing weddings wrapped up. I had some outstanding clients this year who entrusted me with their big day. I made some great connections along the way and was witness to some extraordinary moments, light, and vistas. Below are some of my favorites from this year. Quite moments, and epic scenes. Weddings from a photographers perspective are multifaceted. There’s the portrait sessions with the bride and groom, the details and table settings, the landscape and the environment, the events, moments, and emotions peppered through out the day. At times I feel like an anthropologist documenting an age old ritual in that’s been practiced for thousands of years. I hesitate to call these my best images of the year, though there are some photographs that I’m quite fond of.  With the new year beginning. I look forward to what photographic opportunities 2017 will bring.
