Maggie & Brandon’s wedding ~ Beano’s Cabin, Beaver Creek

colorado mountain wedding bridal partyMaggie & Brandon’s Colorado mountain wedding at Beano’s Cabin in Beaver Creek was so absolutely incredible – I don’t even know where to begin. Such a unique venue – a rustic log cabin sitting amidst the ski slopes of Beaver Creek Resort, Beano’s boasts a world-class chef and spectacular mountain views. Beano’s also boasts a resident porcupine and other curious wildlife..  :) beanos cabin colorado weddingMaggie and Brandon’s outdoor ceremony overlooking a grove of aspen was perfect – so personal and truly representative of them.  Cocktail hour was held on the deck overlooking the mountain range, and then guests enjoyed an elaborate four-course meal followed by toasts, cake, and dancing. Lots and LOTS of dancing. Wild raucous revelry. I don’t think Maggie & Brandon would have it any other way :)  What an amazing night, and such an honor to be a part of.. A few favorites:

Amy & Craig’s wedding ~ Westin Riverfront Beaver Creek

westin riverfront beaver creek weddingAmy& Craig are married! Their mountain wedding ceremony took place at the Beaver Creek Chapel, which is a lovely stone chapel nestled into the trees in the heart of Beaver Creek. The reception was held at the Westin Riverfront Resort and Spa at Beaver Creek, with a cocktail hour on the patio overlooking the river. Such an amazing day, and I loved being a part of it.

one of my favorite parts of the day-  ‘getting ready’

Thank you, Amy & Craig, for having me photograph your day. My warmest congratulations to you both!!

So lucky that I not only get to work with amazing clients but I also get to work with such an incredible team of vendors – starting with the ceremony at the Beaver Creek Chapel officiated by Tim Wilbanks, and Vail Valley String Quartet provided the classical music before and during the ceremony. Cocktail and Reception Music provided by the amazing Fred Hammond with A Great Time DJ, and videography services were provided by Artistic Aura Productions. Hothouse Flowers of Vail created the stunning bridal bouquets and floral centerpieces. Amy’s elegant bridal gown was from Boulder Bridal, and Bella Bridesmaid provided the gorgeous bridesmaids’ dresses.  The  Westin Riverfront Resort and Spa, with their incredible attention to detail and service, hosted both the cocktail hour (on the patio) and the reception in the Riverside Ballroom. Big kudos to all involved.

Colorado High School Senior Portrait Session – class of 2011

With fall right around the corner and yearbook deadlines looming, it’s high school senior portrait season – and I’m loving every minute of it! I really enjoy photographing high school seniors, capturing this important slice of life and letting individual personalities shine.

Becca’s session was one of those sessions where we could have shot all night. She wanted unique locations, and she really really wanted to shoot in a junkyard. Of course I happily accommodated :) We had such a blast and I’ve been dying to share the results – have a look.. Congrats Becca, and best wishes for your success and a fabulous senior year!
