Julianne & Demian | They Wanted Snow - They Got Snow!

90% of our pre-wedding discussions were just repeatedly and excitedly hoping it would snow on Feb 24th. "I hope it snooows!" "Me tooo!" "Is it gonna snooooow?" "Hope sooooo!" Jullianne's Snow Queen dress gave me hope that we'd manifest some flakes. Forecast was lookin good...

Whatever snow dances or animal sacrifices she did worked! And the timing couldn't have been better. It really started coming down after the ceremony, right in time for us to steal away Juli and Dem for some killer show shots. Even this Colorado snow-snob was impressed by this storm. 

And these folks can really throw a dance party! No idea how so many people danced so hard right up until the sparkler exit.

Beautiful newlywed couple. Beautiful winter storm. Beautiful part of the world. What more could a wedding shooter want!?

Jess & Fritz | They Swiped Right

Jess & Fritz | They Swiped Right

Yes, Jess and Fritz met on Tinder. Yes, it was her first short visit to Seattle. And yes, basically writing an ad for internet dating, they instantly fell in love, and she moved literally across the country to be with him!

So they officially won Tinder!

Before you grab your phone and start maniacally swiping for your soul-mate, check out this video of these two knockouts. I don't know if they're professional models, but I do know that they were the easiest people in the world to shoot. So much perfect footage ended up on the cutting room floor!

This was an idyllic upstate party in the woods, ending with a bonfire complete with s'more deliveries and Fritz's friends strumming all my favorite 90s tunes.

Both Jess and Fritz said in their vows that they never expected to meet such a perfect match, that they didn't think this was in the cards for either of them. Seeing them together makes this sound impossible--one look at them and it's clear that they're each other's perfect puzzle pieces.

Katie & Caryn | High Elevation Elopement

For their first date two years ago, Katie picked up Caryn in Vail, and they drove an hour on a narrow, winding alpine road, to a pristine mountain-top lake, nestled in a perfect little valley 9,350 ft. above the rest of us. 

754 days later (yes, Katie counted!), they got married in that exact spot. And day 755 TOTALLY NAILED IT!

I was reminded of two lessons up there in the mountains-- 1) It's very difficult to wipe away one's tears while holding a camera, and 2) There's nothing more important than making deliberate, personalized choices for your wedding day. 

Every detail was so thoroughly KATIE AND CARYN. From the location to the vows to the custom-ordered cupcakes and mid-afternoon nap. These personal details underscore the depth of your connection and commitment--and ensure that I will be a crying mess while putting the finishing touches on your wedding video.
