A wedding over the pool at the Four Seasons Vail

Kedzie and Ed and their crew came from New York to the Vail Valley, where they tied the knot after Kedzie walked down an aisle in the center of the pool at the Four Seasons Vail. It was just jaw dropping.

I headed up to Vail for their celebration with my wife Rannveig, an incredible photographer and my second shooter for the day.

While she hung out shooting the guys as they got ready, I headed up to the bridal suite to photograph the girls doing their final prep before Kedzie and Ed had a first look at Mid Vail, atop Gondola One just below The 10th restaurant.

Everything went pretty smoothly, though Kedzie got a little hot while attempting an in-dress wrinkle removal with a steam wand (see below).

You always have to be careful when organizing a first look — can’t have anyone seeing each other beforehand!

For this one, I went up first with Kedzie and hung out at the 10th for a little bit, while Ed came up a few minutes later. I saw him walking toward the restaurant, intercepted him, and took him down the hill a little bit to a scenic lookout for the reveal.

Once positions, Kedzie knew the drill and came up to surprise him.

Their wedding ceremony was utterly spectacular. They had a wedding aisle built down the center of the pool at the Four Seasons in Vail, and the bride walked down it in front of a huge wall of ivy and cool plates that served as the seating chart.

The bride’s brothers walked down their mom and shared an emotional moment before the ring bearer, bridesmaids, and groom himself all had emotional moments of their own.

The Wedding Vendors

Here are the great vendors who helped make this day possible

Wedding Day Inspiration

My work is photojournalistic and moment-based, but I always shoot the “standard” shots like details and family or bridal party pictures. Here are a few from this wedding, along with links to inspiration galleries from other weddings so you can get some fresh ideas.

Click over to the galleries and pin favorites to your Pinterest boards!


Shoes

Kedzie actually had two pairs of wedding shoes. First were her beautiful bridal shoes pictured here, and second were a pair of Keds, because that’s her nickname: Kedz. Like the shoe!

Wedding Party

Kedzie and Ed had a pretty big wedding party, and we were able to shoot their portraits in a number of locations around Vail Village.

I know a bunch of really pretty areas that are a close walk to the Four Seasons: a few gorgeous gardens, an area near Vail Creek, and of course the main pedestrian walkway with the Gore Range in the background.

Rings

I loved their wedding rings. Simple, clean, and very elegant.

Groom Stuff

Ed sported the coolest cuff links I’ve ever seen.

I used to be a huge watch nerd, and Ed blinged it up with cufflinks that look like the inside of a watch.

Like a gentleman!

Jenn and Dan are getting married up near Estes Park next year and we headed out during a glorious late summer afternoon to shoot their engagement photos. Our trip began in a beautiful valley in Rocky Mountain National Park and ended just after sunset at the top of the continental divide just as the Milky Way was rising. The stars were insanely bright that night and we all were super excited to keep shooting despite shivering cold. I wound up having to borrow a spare pair of Dan’s pants to stay warm.

I had so much fun shooting with these two, since pretty much all they did was joke around the entire time. They have a great connection and their constant smiles are proof of it. I think the only thing that might throw them off course is that they hate each others’ hockey teams. Maybe that’s just a little bit of yin and yang.

So, nevertheless, I’m pretty excited for their wedding near Estes Park next year! Can’t wait to put down my camera for a few minutes and get totally schooled at Mario Cart on the big screen projector. Game on!!

These family photos in Snowmass make me super happy, because it’s pretty fun to see your clients’ families grow, and it’s so rewarding to reconnect with them after a number of years.

I first met Joanna and Jason in 2008, when I was shooting a wedding out in the wine country in California. I flew in to San Francisco, shot the wedding, and then met up with Joanna and Jason the next day for their engagement photos. We had a marathon afternoon in vineyards and abandoned barns, and the headed back to the city for a trip to Fort Point and then to Baker Beach beneath the Golden Gate Bridge. After they had a water fight in the surf, we continued to the urban neighborhoods of the city, and then concluded the session.

I flew back to Colorado knowing their wedding in Santa Barbara, where I grew up, was going to be even more fun. Of course, it did not disappoint! Joanna and Jason were game for anything and everything, which made their engagement session and wedding so much fun.

Fast forward many years. We had been in touch on Facebook now and again, and I’d seen some lovely photos of their new baby. But it was a great surprise to find out they were going on a family trip to Snowmass and wanted a family session.

We met up for the session, shot at some gorgeous location all over Snowmass, and then had a wonderful dinner together catching up.

Cheers to you guys! Can’t wait to do it again!

Here are some favorites from the afternoon.

BRIAN + CANDICE | ELOPEMENT

A misty engagement and elopement at Lily Lake and Wild Basin

Misty summer elopement in Allenspark, CO

Brian and Candice are both active military and wanted to do some engagement and elopement portraits in one session.

They had only one opportunity, which was during some very unusual and misty July weather, so we went for it.

I love shooting up at Lily Lake, which is where we did their engagement session. There are lots of gorgeous aspen groves and forested areas. Brian and Candice were psyched, and their affection for each other was palpable.

Then we headed on down Highway 7 toward Wild Basin for a few more wedding-ish portraits. We shot along the road at some super pretty pull offs, and then headed to Wild Basin Lodge. They wanted to check out the lodge anyway for their wedding, so we got a chance to shoot along the creek and in some of the venue’s large fields.

Despite the misty weather, the wildflowers were bright and colorful and totally out of control!

Congrats to Brian and Candice! So happy to meet you two and work together!

Kelli and Bob seem to live life on their own terms, which I really admire. They were caught in a rain storm on one of their first dates, but instead of seeking shelter, they just had a water fight in the flooded streets. I love this. You could say they made lemonade out of lemons, but getting caught in a flood doesn’t even seem like that sour of a situation for these two.

When Kelli first inquired, she told me she was a shy bride. But watching her absolutely rock out to Lil Jon’s “Turn Down for What” after her first kiss made me question her shyness just a little.

Bride and Groom Kissing near Della Terra Mountain Chateau

On a side note, I Googled the lyrics for the song and realized there are just three lines that get repeated over and over. On one page on the great Internet, the highest upvoted suggested song meaning was this: “I think these lyrics are talking about his wife, whom he is truly in love with.” Hahaha — betcha didn’t know it was a love song. Perfect for a recessional!

I first met them over Skype while I was in Mallorca last winter, then met them again for their Denver engagement session, and finally I shot their wedding at the beautiful Della Terra Mountain Chateau up here in Estes Park, Colorado. It is a fantastic venue on the outskirts of Rocky Mountain National Park, with amazing views and a serene feel.

Della Terra wedding ceremony

They dressed up the venue with lots of colors, Kelli made good on her sweet tooth with a huge table of candy, and she also sported the most colorful shoes I’ve ever seen.

It was a joy to photograph Kelli and Bob’s authentic connection, and incredibly beautiful to see the closeness between Bob’s kids and Kelli. They had an awesome first dance, where Kelli danced with her dad and Bob danced with his daughters. Everyone cried their faces off.

These guys have spunk, pizazz and are a great match. Kelli, Bob, you guys rock!

Also, thanks to the great vendors who helped this day go off without a hitch.

Kelli and Bob opted for an urban engagement session to complement their wedding at Della Terra Mountain Chateau up in the mountains of Estes Park. I met them at the REI in Denver a few weeks ago and we romped around the city for a little while. Turns out that their engagement was just a few days before the wedding day itself, so stay tuned as it will be up on the blog shortly.

I really like shooting in Denver — I feel like a kid in a candy store when I’m in the city, since I get to check out cool architecture, interesting alley ways, and unique light that’s waaaay different than mountain light at 9,000 feet.

Here are a few from the afternoon.

I shot Megan and Chad’s engagement session near Rocky Mountain National Park twice, or rather I shot half of their engagement session twice and combined them into a whole.

We tried once in mid winter and got absolutely shut down by howling winds, sub zero temps, and, in typical Estes Park fashion, perfectly blue skies. Such deceptive weather is a bit of a hallmark up here; winter mornings in Estes Park often dawn clear and brilliant, but the winds pick up, the houses shake, and trying to operate a camera can be a challenge once your fingers start to freeze into claws with zero dexterity.

Anyway, we tried. We froze. And we still got a few cool shots before taking a break for a few months. Megan really wanted to get some sort of starry night picture, and to do that we had to wait for warmer temps where we could comfortably hang out at dusk or shortly thereafter.

So, fast forward to summer! We romped around in the woods for a few hours and I think we nailed it.

Congrats, guys!

Nadine and Wes are expecting twins this year, so we combined their engagement session with a maternity session in the mountains of Estes Park. I’m super excited for their wedding in August 2016, and I wonder if the lil ones will be old enough to remember their parents getting married! They’ll be just 1 year old. I think I have a few memories from that age!

Anyway, we spent a recent afternoon cruising around making pregnancy pictures and had the good fortune of some of the most beautiful evening light I’ve seen in a while. It was just gorgeous — warm, soft, low. I can’t ask for better light. Thankfully we get that fairly often above Estes Park.

I got an email from Ivan a few days before he and Amanda got married, and whatever he wrote — something along the lines of “There won’t be much going on at our reception — we’ll just be playing board games” — gave me the impression that they would literally just be playing board games.

Pro Tip: When a bride or groom tells you they’ll just be playing board games, don’t believe them. Or just interpret “board game players” to mean something like Board Game Playaz, if you know what I mean. These guys went big.

Because in my humble opinion, these two are more playaz than players. Do you think?

parkhyattwedding-ivanda-20

I still remember the first email I got from Amanda when she inquired a year and a half ago: she told me that the theme of their wedding was “fun” and that I looked like I understood the concept. Despite being such a simple statement, it was also a tremendous compliment! It can be difficult to identify why, as a viewer, you are drawn to photography, but Amanda nailed it.

I like fun. I like shooting fun, I like having fun, I like people who are having fun. I try to present that on my images and Amanda immediately recognized this. And for that I’m truly grateful, because it led to us discussing Dr. Seuss (he said “Fun is good”) and then an engagement session in Estes Park that went on after the sun set and involved stars and cold and good times, and then a kick ass wedding. Click here to see their engagement photos.

The Board Game Playaz got ready at the Park Hyatt in Beaver Creek, Colorado, had an emotional first look just outside the hotel, and then boarded the gondola to the top of the mountain. Tears flowed again in a beautiful and extremely heartfelt ceremony at the Beaver Creek Wedding Deck — their vows had pretty much everyone crying, myself included. A few rain clouds threatened, but what happened is what always happens: the clouds blew away and left in their wake gorgeousness and perfection.

We wandered around the fields of grasses and flowers around the wedding deck and I scrambled about 25 feet up into an aspen tree to take a few images of Ivan and Amanda from above, and I loved the fact that they were laid back enough to actually do this on their wedding day. Thankfully the dead branch I kicked out of the tree didn’t hit anyone, and thankfully I didn’t kill myself by falling out of it. Then thunder came and we high tailed it back down the mountain.

The Park Hyatt has a private dining room that gets used for wedding receptions, but just outside that area is a bar, lots of seating (you know, for playing board games), a pool table, and a great space where I set up my new photo booth.

Favorites in a sec, but first, tons of thanks to the awesome team of wedding vendors who made this day possible, and a huge congratulations to Ivan and Amanda. I am so thrilled for you two!

Bride and groom kissing in snow in front of Della Terra Mountain Chateau

Figured I’d get caught up with this gorgeous winter wedding from Della Terra up here in Estes Park. Courtney and Jeff came from bone dry California and were hoping for a winter wonderland. They got it — the snow came down hard. I was worried for a little while that some of their guests weren’t going to make it, but everyone was on time and the day unfolded perfectly.

Estes doesn’t get this kind of snowfall that often, but a few times a year we get totally dumped on. These are my favorite days, when the snow is so thick and the trees are so blanketed that the world is quiet, and the only thing you can hear if you concentrate and imagine is the sound of each snowflake hitting the ground. It’s sublime.

Bride and Groom Dancing at Della TerraThe wedding was inside Della Terra’s ballroom, but Courtney and Jeff decided to keep the doors open partly for a cleaner background in the photos and partly because they wanted to bring a little of this winter wonderland inside with them. The cold air flowed into the room and brought with it a little bit of winter magic.

Della Terra has maybe 100 pendant lights hanging from the ceiling, which glow in the evenings. It’s particularly pretty during winter weddings, when sun sets and the cold blue dusk light gets darker and more intense. Those pendants just seem to light up the entire world.

Anyway, congrats to Courtney and Jeff!! Super psyched for you and so happy to shoot your big day in snowy Estes Park, Colorado!
