I am so in love with this engagement session! Melanie & Mark brought all kinds of awesome to their session, including their brand new puppy (who really is the most adorable dog in the world :) But what I truly love was how they personalized their session by donning their waders and grabbing their fly fishing gear! Oh yeah.. It was nothing short of amazing, and I cannot wait for their Spruce Mountain Ranch wedding next year!rockin the waders♥love the reflection in the water
Sarah and Arun have the kind of love that is so precious. Their joy is palpable, and their delight contagious. Their families are warm and open and loving, and it was a tremendous honor to work with them. Their Colorado mountain wedding at the Four Seasons Vail was elegant and dreamy, with every flawless detail coordinated to perfection by John Tobey with John Tobey Event Design, and Geena and the entire staff at the Four Seasons. A few favorites..

Paulette and Rod exude a kind of joy that makes your heart sing. Their laughter and happiness is infectious, and you can’t help but be swept away by their love story. It was an absolute delight working with them and capturing their wedding at the Broadmoor. And I cannot sing high enough praises to Nina with Nina Nichols Austin Weddings as well as Lindsey and the entire team at The Broadmoor and Design Works for their sublime talent creating this impeccable event.

Paulette & Rod kicked off their wedding weekend festivities with a down-home Texas-inspired rehearsal dinner at The Broadmoor‘s Cheyenne Mountain Lodge. It was the perfect weekend, and the perfect way to start the celebration. Paulette & Rod are the kind of people that draw you in and make you feel like family. They are warm and sweet, vibrant and effusive, joyful and fun. And so clearly in love with each other. It was such a delight to work with them and be a part of capturing their story. I just adore these two, and I am so excited to share the highlights from part one of their wedding weekend. Special appreciation to Nina Austin of Nina Nichols Austin Weddings for her amazing attention to detail and impeccable coordination of the entire event, as well as to Lindsey and the entire staff at the Broadmoor – such a distinct pleasure!
