When we first met Amanda and Josh last winter over coffee, we knew we’d love them! After already knowing their family, we were sure we’d adore these two just as much! Over the last year we’ve had the pleasure of getting to know Amanda and Josh and their families, their beautiful love for each other, and their eagerness to enter into marriage. We are so excited these two found each other shortly after moving to Colorado! Thank you so much for having us be a part of your journey! Love you guys!

We tend to genuinely love our couples. When we have the awesome opportunity to develop an friendship with those we get to spend their special day with, it makes our job feel so intimate, emotional, and overall wonderfully beautiful. For the last year, I had the honor of seeing all of their DIY projects, tossing around wedding day ideas together, as well as sending hilarious YouTube videos to each other and epic selfies. On top of that, seeing the love and humor that Zachary and Adriana share has been nothing short of amazing. The way they adore each other and can joke together without missing a beat is endearing and hilarious to watch! Their perfect wedding at the Pines at Genesee was them to a tee as all of their DIY projects came together and all of their family and friends gathered in a stunning autumn afternoon. We are so honored to have been a part of your wedding day, and more importantly, a part of your lives. We can’t wait to watch you go on this journey through marriage together!
Love you guys!

Luke and Quintana met in 2010 on a hike up Mt. Bierstadt and Mt. Evans via the Sawtooth Ridge with a couple of mutual friends. They quickly found that their personalities were as compatible as their interest in outdoor adventures. They spent the next several years enjoying and challenging one another while mountain biking, snowboarding, hunting, fishing, camping, and hiking additional 14’ers. Eventually, they were able to make their own home in the mountains southwest of Denver in Conifer.
Luke proposed on Quintana’s birthday weekend in March 2014. True to her adventurous spirit, Quintana had wanted to spend the day wandering the woods and looking for spring antler sheds; Luke arranged for them to work their way up to a hilltop view of nearby Mt. Evans. When she turned around from taking pictures of the mountain, Luke was on one knee and immediately she was soaring with emotion.
They planned an outdoor fall mountain wedding to share their love for each other and their adventurous lifestyle with close family and friends in September 2015. Their favorite part of the wedding was the ceremony, a story of their relationship beautifully crafted and delivered by Keith Horstman, with meaningful contributions by some close family members. They couldn’t have imagined a more joyful beginning to our marriage!
Quintana was adamant about incorporating close family (including their double doodle, Tessy) and friends and local businesses into their wedding day. Her mother intricately designed and made her stunning wedding dress. The couple made all of their wedding decorations, which included hunting for pinecones and making picture frames out of them! Quintana made beautiful scarves for her bridesmaids as a thank you gift. Many of their vendors were local to the area Quintana and Luke call home in Conifer and close to the venue in Pine.
Thank you two so much for your friendship and for having us be a part of your incredible wedding day! Congratulations on the best adventure of your life!

Most of us could only dream of meeting our soul mate the way that Allison and Cristiano met. Picture meeting the person of your dreams while working on a cruise ship traveling the world. Yep, for real, it happened with these two! Mr. & Mrs. Chiappa’s wedding ceremony at Lower Lake Ranch was nothing short of a dream. Their love for each other (and all the beautiful Italian accents) made for such an amazing wedding day in Pine, Colorado. Thank you so much for having me be a part of your wonderful day!
Andi and Cory’s stunning Breckenridge wedding has us so giddy and excited! All of their wonderful DIY projects tied into their mountain wedding that was truly them. From having their fur-baby Oscar present for the whole day, to Andi’s cupcakes that she handmade for their big day, to their centerpieces that were memories of their Colorado hikes, and the gondola ride to their first look spot, everything truly shouted “MR. & MRS. GRAVES!” We are so honored we go to be a part of their wedding day and have developed a great friendship with them! Thank you two for having us be there with you as you said, “We do!”

When Carrie told me she wanted to do a bridal shoot for her and her husbands 8 year anniversary, I was so thrilled! Seeing a wife, mom, and friend in her wedding dress again is a surreal moment. Carrie and I chatted about how much life has changed in the last 8 years that she and Andy have been married. She’s now a mother of two amazing boys, Jack and Brooks, a runner, and a wonderful friend. I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to spend the morning with this lovely lady!
So many times throughout your wedding day, you’ll stop for a second and recognize what’s going on around you and the vows you had just made. For Jeremy and Leslie, their wedding day was a union of families, two children, and moments of incredible emotion. We loved being a part of every second of their amazing and intimate wedding day in Pine, Colorado. Thank you two for having us be there with you two!

Things We Love :: Leslie wore her father’s wedding band the entire wedding day. • The union of families as Leslie became a mother to Alyson and Ethan. • Jeremy’s unstoppable joking and humor all day long. • Their daughter playing her cello during the ceremony. • The apple pie and ice cream, obviously.
Meeting awesome couples is one of the best parts of our job as wedding photographers, and Lisa and Tyler certainly set the bar for awesomeness! Their love and truly fun personalities shined on their beautiful wedding day as they were surrounded by their closest friends and family members at the Denver Botanic Gardens at Chatfield. Every part of their day was given such thought and care. We are truly blessed to have spent their amazing evening celebrating with them! Thank you so much for having us be a part of your wedding day!

A relaxing Sunday afternoon wedding next to the Colorado River surrounded by the Rocky Mountains and close friends and family is a recipe for an incredible wedding! I’m not going to lie, Mike and I were so excited to return to the Double A Barn in Grand Lake for such an awesome couples big day! Abby and Daniel were surrounded by family and friends as they said “We do!” and started their journey through marriage. We are absolutely thrilled for the two of you and are so thankful we got to spend your amazing wedding day with you and your loved ones. We can’t wait to see where marriage takes you!
