I had such a blast at this wedding with Megan and Darren and both of their incredibly sweet and gracious families. From the moment I started communicating with Megan and her mother Mimi I knew I was going to love them! They booked me with some of the nicest compliments on my work that I can remember getting. And since they were planning the wedding from out of state/out of the country, we didn’t actually meet in person until a couple of months before hand. But as soon as we were in the same room together I knew that all of my instincts about them were right! From the moment I laid eyes on them, I could feel their genuine goodness and warmth of spirit just pouring off of them like light. And as if they weren’t sweet enough all on their own, Mimi brought me the most delicious true Belgium dark chocolate I have ever tasted! How she knew the way straight to my heart I’ll never know-ha!
Besides the wonderful couple and their great families, I also had the pleasure of working with one of my favorite coordinators in Colorado! JoAnn Moore and her fabulous assistant, Mindy, from Mountains and Meadows are always an absolute joy to work with and so much fun to be around on a wedding day! I was lucky enough to have my strong and steady second shooter and studio manager, Julia Timmer, shooting along next to me all day and after having an incredibly hard time narrowing it down, I think the images we took together are some of our best work to date. More than anything, the credit goes to Megan and Darren for the look of love they had on their faces all day long. It’s really easy to take gorgeous photos of beautiful people as in love with each other as Megan and Darren clearly are. Take a look for yourself and see!
With a beautiful traditional ceremony at the Vail Chapel and a smashing reception for nearly 300 guests at the Park Hyatt, I was not at a disadvantage in location either. Photographing around the Vail & Beaver Creek Villages is one of my favorite parts about the mountain weddings in Colorado! Thank you to all of the wonderful vendors who helped make this day so special including Rose Petals for the beautiful floral, and the Wyane Foster Band for such a rocking good dance party. Megan, you will forever be my cute-as-a-button bride. Julie and I couldn’t stop saying that about you all day long. And Darren, you were as gracious and classy a groom as I’ve ever met. You two truly deserve all the best the world has to offer. Please don’t be strangers! Congrats again and thank you so much for the honor.
