Danielle & Kyle | YMCA of the Rockies Wedding | Overlook Chapel, Estes Park | Colorado Wedding Photographer

It was beautiful day at the YMCA of the Rockies with Danielle and Kyle. The skies were blue, the trees were lush and this couple could not get enough of one another. Danielle and Kyle currently live in Alabama, where Kyle is attending medical school. They LOVE Colorado with a passion though, and visit every chance they get. Danielle had planned for months to make her wedding truly unique and special. She had her mother's wedding dress altered into the beautiful wedding gown you see below, and even wore her grandmother's vintage party dress for part of the reception. Her details and attention to detail were immaculate and beautiful. The colors were extremely natural, focusing on the whites, pinks/blush, browns and neutral greens to bring a cohesiveness between the wedding decor and the already breathtaking mountain wonderland. I would say it was definitely achieved! Throughout the day you could just tell how loved they were by their friends and family. Everyone was so excited for them which is just the perfect way to begin a new marriage. That excitement lasted well into the night as the dance party and hulk props made their way into the scene. Thank you Kyle and Danielle for being wonderful clients! I truly wish you the best on this grand and great new adventure they call marriage.

Kat & Luc | Summit County Wedding Photographer | Idaho Springs | Breckenridge | Rocky Mountain Styled Shoot

Occasionally "us" photographers get to plan and participate in styled shoots. This particular one was the doing of an awesome photography group I'm involved with in Colorado called the Pursuit Community. I went on a weekend retreat a few weeks ago where we got to get back to our "roots" per se, and really talk about our businesses and personal lives, as well as spend some time in worship and community. It was an awesome weekend, and I walked away with so many new friendships. Photography can sometimes be a lonely profession when you're not out and about shooting weddings and what not during the weekdays, so getting to collaborate and network with other amazing creatives like myself was such a blessing. It's so funny, because we are all incredibly different, but incredibly alike as well. I definitely found a group of ladies who share similar passions, struggles and lives. 

The cool thing about this couple was that they were the worship leaders for our retreat. They actually lead worship at Lifebridge Christian Church in Longmont, so this wasn't their first rodeo ;). Anyways, this photo shoot was a special treat for them because they did not have the most amazing wedding photos, and they look back to that day wishing they did. It's such a testament to the fact that wedding photography is SOOOO important. Now that life is busy and bustling with their twins, it was even more special to step aside and have some photos for themselves. I think my favorite part was hearing Luc sing "Maaaarrrrrrrrryyyyy Meeeeeee" (as all of the lady photographers said YES! with no hesitation---Yes, I heard you Mrs. Kraft, haha). It was pretty funny. Anyways, thank you ladies, and Kat & Luc for such an amazing weekend!
