Denver Engagement Photography Today’s post is all about Kristin + Matt: Denver, Colorado Engagement Photography with images courtesy of Kayla Feldman Photography.

Couple Skis to Wedding Ceremony in Breckenridge
Today's post is all about Angela + Chris: Bride and Groom Ski to Wedding Ceremony in Breckenridge with images courtesy of Timothy Faust Photography. This bride and groom chose to take a few runs and enjoyed the snow at the Breckenridge Ski Resort before joining friends and family at the base village area. What a way to celebrate the day!
Destination Adventures for Colorado Weddings and Elopements
A few years we decorated a wedding venue at the base of the slopes. It was an 8am ceremony, which means we were on site at 6 am setting up. That made for an extremely early morning of getting up, going to the shop and then loading and unloading. All in time for the 8am start! And, afterwards the couple and family went skiing. Now, that's a great way to have a destination wedding in the Colorado Rocky Mountains. Whether you want to ski to your wedding, or after your wedding, it's up to you. We're here to help you see it through. Please contact us to learn more about how we can customize a wedding package that is matched with photographers who can ski or ride with you, and others who are seasoned mountain wedding professionals and can anticipate the inclement weather and variables. Thanks for stopping by!
Chris and Angie had a really fun idea for a wedding: ski down from the top of Breckenridge Ski Area together to their ceremony at Mountain Thunder Lodge. Finding a photographer who was willing and able to go on that adventure with them could have been a challenge, so I am really glad they gave me a call.

Iceland Engagement Photography
Today's post is all about Svala + Johanh: Iceland Engagement Photography in Reykjavik with images courtesy of Sotiris Tsakanikas Photography. This Greece-based photographer describes this couple and their shoot in broken English, but hey, that's much better than we could write in Greek, so many thanks to Sotiris for sharing his images with our mountain wedding blog. We have dreamed of going to Iceland to explore the mountains, and this post only makes us want to go even more. This dramatic landscape is surreal and definitely belongs on this blog, as we are sure that a few of our couples have the same wanderlust for mountains around the world like we do. That's why you're seeing a series of posts of mountain weddings and mountain love from around the country and around the world.
Destination Mountain Engagements and Elopements
Breckenridge and Summit County are our specialty, but we hope you contact us if you like what you see here, because Sotiris would be happy to join you on any mountain adventures in Iceland, or Greece for that matter. After a brief email exchange, we discovered that he is based in a town that's nearby to where Dina's father is from. He fled his homeland many years ago, when it was a war torn area. We can understand his wanting to escape conflict and make a better life for his family in the United States, which he did. So, if you are dreaming of an engagement or elopement in Breck, or in the mountains of Greece, we know of a brilliant photographer who can take outstanding photos of you and your love. Please contact us for more information about destination elopements. Thanks for stopping by!
What took me to Reykjavik in the first place was of course ... Love ! Svala and Johanh are a young couple of Icelanders who had me shoot their engagement. Johanh, who has this composed air of regal austerity, is a bit camera shy at first, but it's an Nordic thing as I can tell; Icelanders will graciously allow you into their space, will be excellent hosts and fascinating conversationalists, but when it comes to posing, or standing in front of the camera they do not appear overly excited even if they are. Then Svala, with her milky white complexion and fairy-like, girly beauty approaches, whispering something to his ear, and everything changes; I guess it's no mystery that your woman's ways of making this world a milder place for you are phenomenal. They unwind, they embrace and I am sincerely at a loss for words because their intimacy reminds me of an arcadian ballad, the simple, innocent contentement one finds in fairytales of the North. Their gestures, spotless and effortless have me follow them around as they stroll, it's sort of like a gentle hunt.
Rainy Day Engagements
Today's post is all about Alisha + Jonathan: Rainy Day Engagement in North Carolina with images courtesy of Eleveneleven Films and Photography. I spent a summer in North Carolina and it has some wonderful hills and terrain that are worthy of this blog, which is why you're looking at this dramatic set of images. The contrast and muted colors are striking and invoke a certain emotion that's raw and powerful.
I liked how the couple wandered through the woods throughout the shoot. It reminded me of my wife and I as we wander through the trees in search of hidden spots and off-the-beaten path locations. Curiosity is definitely part of what keeps me going out exploring, and I'm lucky to have a partner with that same drive. It makes for fun exploring! If we would have had engagement photos (we didn't), this is what I would have gone for. Something super cool like these. I hope you like them as much as I did.
Destination Photography for Engagements, Elopements and Weddings

Alisha and Jonathan have been together for about six years, but their love burns brighter than ever, even in the POURING rain. These guys watched the the dark, rain clouds coming over the horizon, and still said "let's do it." Alisha and Jonathan climbed stumps and rocks and boulders, and trudged through the mud that surrounds Rattlesnake Lake without a complaint. These guys are used to exercise, because they actually met and fell in love in a gym. After repeatedly asking her out, Alisha finally said yes and they have been together ever since. Grab a warm drink and try not to get too cold watching these guys freeze by the lake!
Vintage VW Bus Engagement Photography Session
Today's post is all about Megan + Thomas: VW Bus Engagement Photography in British Columbia with images courtesy of Clint Bargen Photography. I accepted this submission as it reminded me of a road trip that Dina and I did a few years back. We flew into San Francisco and saw Galactic with Charlie 2na at the Fillmore. The next day we took the train to a car rental company that we rented a westfalia from and drove along the coastal byway towards Santa Cruz. A beach in British Columbia would be a fun place to hang out with a bus. This couple did just that to celebrate their engagement. How fun is that?
Wheels, Rails and Boats
So, when it comes down to it, you'll have your choice of wheels, rails and boats when it comes to transportation in and around Colorado. Wheels being found on cars and even the landing gear of small aircraft. Rails for the various rail road tracks and train excursions around. And boats, meaning the water craft that explore our alpine lakes. You can have some fun activities planned for your engagement shoot like a background piece being either mountains or something large like the bus here. You can also hop a small plane to Vail or Telluride from the Denver area and find dramatic backdrops there.
For the Breckenridge and Summit County areas, I think a unique feature is to get out on the water and take some pics. We had a pontoon parade after our outdoor ceremony at Lake Dillon. But, do what feels right for you. And if you need some help putting it all together, we can help with that. We help plan a lot of destination weddings and elopements, but surprise proposals and engagement shoots are part of what we do too. Please contact us to learn more. Thanks for reading!
Got the call from these two cross border lovers (she's American and he's a Canuck like me) last month. Thomas wanted to know if we could use his vintage VW bus in some photos and I was down for that! Can't be that classic feel.
Breckenridge, Colorado Engagement Photos
Today's post is all about Dana + Rob: Engagement Photography in Breckenridge, Colorado with images courtesy of Ashleigh Miller Photography. This collection of images is a mountain lover's dream shoot. Waterfalls, wildflowers and your best friend. Panoramic views with rolling hills and rocky streams make the perfect backdrop for these two. Ask us how we can set you up with a gorgeous location for a shoot with Ashleigh.
Rocky Mountain Weddings and Elopements
Some couples choose to do their engagement shoots here, and then get married elsewhere. Or vice versa. Either way, if you need help putting together a romantic getaway to the Colorado rockies, that's where we come in. Thanks for reading, but I've got a holiday weekend to get started! Please contact us to learn more about what we can do for you.
I had such a wonderful day exploring outside of Breckenridge with these two, Dana & Rob! The scenery was fantastic between the wildflower fields and the waterfalls.
