Our first meeting with Chaz and Christine was in Aspen at Maroon Bells the fall before their wedding. The plan was to meet in the parking lot at the top of the mountain, but little did either of us know that we'd get an insane snow storm or that the ranger wouldn't let them into the park. Anyone who's ever been there knows you have little to no cell coverage 1/2 to the entrance. With that, Kris stayed at the parking lot while Lindsay drove to get reception. After what seemed like forever, we were finally able to connect with them. They jumped in our van (everyone knows what an experience that is) and we were finally on our way to do engagement photos!
During the two years, we had to get to know them, we learned about who they really were, what they stood for and what was most important to them. Their love for the people in their lives (family, friends, puppy's) and their love for adventure. This sweet couple spent two years planning the wedding of their dreams and we can only hope we captured every moment the way they remember.
To Brandon and Lisa, thank you so much for trusting us with your day and allowing us to play such a small role! The way you two love your family, friends and one another is incredible and we are truly blessed to have witnessed your day. We pray that with each year that passes, that these images bring you back to your amazing day!!
To Jamie & Gretchen, thank you for allowing us to capture your day and THANK YOU for booking the 2pm slot! The weather was AMAZING!!! We LOVED watching the two of you take in the day and simply enjoy what was thrown at you. Continue enjoying life and watch God gives you because even through the rain, you'll have gorgeous outcomes!
Jon and Liz, you truly have something special. It's apparent to all the people you surround yourselves with and we are so honored that we were able to be a part of that. We hope these images bring you back to this day and remind you just how amazing you both are!
To Ryan and Lindsay, we thank you for allowing us to be such a small part of your day. Through the ups and downs, you two took it in stride and never allowed the obstacles to define your day. We hope these photos bring you right back to your amazing day!!
To Steve and Dawn, we pray that these photos bring you right back to the moments, sights and sounds of laughter. You two were such a joy to photography and we are honored that you choose us to capture your happily ever after. Thank you for trusting us with your amazing day.
To Stuart and Kara, thank you. Thank you for trusting us to capture your wedding without ever meeting us. Thank you for sharing your hearts with so many and not being afraid of what that looks like. Most of all, thank you for sharing your love with so many. The way you two look at one another, hold one another and treat one another should be mirrored by so many. Your joy is incredibly powerful and we were so blessed to capture it on your day.
To Joseph and Stevi, don't ever loose sight of the incredible joy and love you two have. The way you share how much you two love one another is something that the world needs, so please don't ever forget that. Your wedding reminded us that we need to share more words with one another. Sometimes seeing and reading the way someone feels about you is better received than simply saying. Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to capture your day and we hope it brings you joy for years to come.
To Jason and Nikki, thank you for allowing us to see the love you share with so many and the beauty that comes from that. We are so grateful to know you and to have had the opportunity to capture your marriage.

To Nolan & Whitnee, we hope these photos bring you right back to those moments. The moment you prepared to see each other for the first time. The moment when you laughed with your family and friends. Most of all, we pray these photos are a constant reminder that no matter where life takes you, that God's intention for your lives as one, is more amazing than you can fathom. Thank you for trusting us, thank you for asking us and thank you for allowing us to capture your ever fleeting moments.
To Jeff & Ashton, we thank you for allowing us to capture your day and allowed us to have a small glimpse into your life. You two have surrounded yourselves with an amazing group of friends and we were so honored to be there during such a wonderful unity. As you continue to learn one another and grow in your love, don't be afraid of the storms. Allow God to take control and he will make it beautiful!!! We hope you enjoy your sneak peek!
We hope you two had a fantastic, unforgettable time in Colorado and your dreams came true on your snowy wedding day. We had such a wonderful time running through Rocky Mountain National Park and braving the chilly day with (mind you, we were in winter coats, so it wasn't TOO bad for us)! ;)
During that week, we broke more than I could’ve imagined and were brought to our knees like never before. After 3 years of marriage counseling we were finally being honest. Honest with ourselves, honest with each other and honest with God. We were fully exposed and it sucked.
I wanted to leave. I wanted to go home. I didn’t want to meet new people. I wanted to curl up in my room and never leave. I was literally TERRIFIED. I looked at Kris and said, we need to go home, we can’t do this and started crying. The enemy was working so hard to separate us from what God had called us to do.
To John Mark & Stephanie. We know what it's like to go through the incredible struggles during courtship and can tell you it's worth it. Every tear, every battle, every setback, it's all worth it. To see your love for one another and your commitment to God was a blessing. We are so blessed that you choose us to capture your moments and hope that as you start the road to recovery that you're reminded daily of the incredible gift you have in each other.
