Laura & Kaleb’s wedding in June at the Silverthorne Pavilion was a beautiful, sunny Colorado celebration. This stunning bride and her adorable groom made the most of this awesome Summit County venue and we had lots of time to play!

> Northern California Wedding

> Holly & Tony are two of the most adorable, genuine, kind-hearted people I have ever met. So when they asked if I’d be willing to possibly come out to California to shoot their wedding, there was zero hesitation on my end. “I mean, I guess I could do that….YES!” Their ceremony & reception took place under tall redwoods and twinkly stringed lights. California dreamy.

> Backyard Wedding in Dillon

These two did it right. A quick ceremony by the lake, followed by an awesome tented reception in their own backyard. More to come, but for now here’s a sneak peek at some of my absolute favorites from Saturday evening!

> A Ghost Town and a Hike

>

Road trips are great. And it’s easy to find some awesome places around Colorado without traveling too far. This weekend was proof that sometimes it is worth pulling off to see what that “Point of Interest” sign is all about. Exploring the remains of Independence, CO circa 1879 is by far one of the coolest side trips we discovered. So many questions, so much wonder created by this once thriving site. And, of course, some awesome images, too!

After a couple more stops along the road we made it to the Hanging Lake trail in Glenwood Springs. I gladly welcomed the motivation from strangers on the way up as they were coming back down: “You’re almost there” and “It’s worth it!!” A rough hike up, but it truly was worth it, and then some. Beautiful turquoise water, gorgeous afternoon light in the canyon, not to mention that small sense of accomplishment for simply placing one foot in front of the other and climbing up the pile of rocks!

> Southern Kentucky Wedding

Stunning: the only word I can come up with to describe Megan & Ryan’s Big Day last weekend. Gorgeous weather, amazing couple, beautiful family and friends… I must’ve done something right to deserve a week like this one. This Kentucky wedding had me like a kid in a candy store – so many photos and things to shoot! Lots of shots to sift through, but this one really says it all!
