A little change is happening // Ash Meier, Colorado Wedding Photographer

Hello There!

It has been a super busy Fall so far. I have an exciting announcement though; something I have been working on for weeks. After some strong deliberation, I have decided to split my photography brands! Yes, BlueHaus Studios is still there, working as hard as ever to shoot amazing portraits. But, BlueHaus will primarily be focusing on family and portrait photography! The big change is, I have a created a completely different wedding brand so I can customize the wedding experience a little bit more for my awesome brides.

Jenna & Enich | YMCA of the Rockies Wedding | Estes Park, CO | Colorado Wedding Photographer

Can I just start out by saying that I love the beauty involved with mountain weddings? It seriously just doesn't get any better than this. Jenna chose such beautiful vibrant colors that completely complimented the bluebird day. The pinks, oranges and purples....Maybe I am just biased because I go crazy about color, but seriously, I think I just want to eat her bouquet. The details were incredible once again, and she stuck with an arrow theme. The day was beautiful, not too hot and not too cold. Jenna anticipated her first look with Enich, and it was such a blessing to see such an emotional moment between the two with the Rocky Mountains glimmering in the background. Their laid back YMCA wedding was such a treat to be a part of, and I absolutely loved getting to know Jenna over the last year :).

Chelsey & Robert Mountain Snowflake Winter Wedding | Wild Basin Lodge | Estes Park Wedding Photographer | Allenspark, CO

Today I'm blogging a winter wedding in the middle of July because it FEELS like winter here in Colorado. I had an awesome New Year's day with Chelsey and Robert. We had the perfect amount of sun, snow and smiles. The couple actually lives in Texas (they're real Aggies), and came to Colorado to have the perfect mountain winter wonderland wedding, and I would say that they accomplished it! I loved Chelsey's dress and snowflake theme....and I even loved her Uggs. If you don't live in Colorado you might not understand how amazing Uggs are, but they are my absolute favorite in the winter time because you feel like your walking on warm clouds all day. Anyway, I know this is months late, but congrats Chelsey and Robert! I am so happy for you two.

Lindsey & Lucas | Wild Basin Lodge Wedding | Allenspark, CO | Estes Park Wedding Photographer

A little sneak peek of Lindsey & Lucas's Wild Basin Lodge Wedding on Mother's Day. We had a little snow sprinkle (yes, in May!) that added the coolest effects to the photos. The fog over the mountain truly made for a spectacular view as well. It was a little muddy, but Lindsey and Lucas were up for playing in the mud and humoring me throughout :). The day was perfect as family and friends witnessed true love at it's finest. Thank you Lindsey & Lucas for letting me be such a big part of your big day! It truly was a blessing.

Rachel & Tim | Mary's Lake Lodge Wedding | Estes Park Wedding Photographer

A beautiful May day with this lovely couple. Rachel and Tim were a blast to work with. They are actually an out-of-state couple from Nebraska, and just knew that they wanted to get married in the beautiful Colorado mountains. Rachel is just as sweet as southern sweet tea, and was so awesome throughout the entire time we were working together over the last year. We had a little bit of rain and a little bit of shine; exactly what Colorado weddings are! Congratulations you two, and thank you for letting me share such a special day with you all.

We love meeting new clients, and hope you enjoy this blogpost. If you have questions or would like to book a consultation or session, please contact me at ashley@bluehausstudios.com. Thank you! 

It was love at first site when I met Mercedes and Jimmy at a little old place in Johnstown for our wedding consultation. From the beginning, I could tell this couple was going to be so much fun to work with. Both avid crossfitters with big personalities. Mercedes and I later found out we had a mutual friend whom I met when I was going to school in California. It's such a small world. As our journey went on we had our engagement session. I remember Jimmy saying, "Mercedes... Behave!" as we were gallivanting around Horsetooth Reservoir. To be brief, this cracked me up and I love Mercedes's humor as well Jimmy's way of loving her. They are perfect for each other.

As we hit their wedding day this past September, I was flooded with emotion spending time with their awesome friends and family. Their catholic ceremony was at Our Lady of The Mountains Catholic Church, and was absolutely beautiful. The priest had some humor of his own which I totally appreciated. After the ceremony, we took a trolley up to Lily Lake where we had beautiful water shimmering it's way into our pictures. We later spent the rest of the evening dancing and laughing at the Estes Park Resort. I LOVE weddings and I love the "love" this couple has for another. Congratulations, Mercedes & Jimmy!
