Salida Colorado Senior Portraits Photographer | Zach Salida High School Class of 2018
I’m so excited to share Zach’s Salida Colorado senior portraits with you guys today! Senior portraits are some of my favorite sessions to shoot. Especially in a place like Salida, Colorado, our home for the last year and a half. There’s always so much excitement with the unknown after high school. For Zach, his unknown is going to start in Spain. This awesome high school senior moved to Salida a couple years ago with his family from Arkansas. He quickly joined the mountain bike team and continued pursuing his love of motocross.
We met his family not too long ago and have since become awesome friends with them! Over dinner one night, Zach was telling us his plan to take a year off of college and head to Spain for some traveling and to practice his Spanish. Being huge travelers ourselves, Mike and I were so excited for Zach! Hearing his plans got us more inspired to do more of our own traveling. Not to mention, these two have an equal love of dirt bikes!
Zach’s Salida Colorado Senior Portraits fall session was awesome for so many reasons.
We explored the ranch that both of our horses summer graze on (Finn and Georgia are now in love). The property is an insanely beautiful hidden gem in our area and we’re super thankful to the owner for letting us explore and shoot on the family property. Not only did our in love horses follow us around, Zach’s family dog, Izzy, was the star of the shoot, and she knew it! She romped around the 600 acre ranch as we shot and came as fast as lightening when we called her for a photo. Her smile in the photos is undeniable! And of course, you can’t go wrong with those striking Collegiate Peaks in the backdrop at sunset.
Congratulations on your senior year, Zach! We’re so excited to see where your travels take you in the upcoming years. Thank you so much for having us be apart of this time with you.
Missoula Montana Wedding Photographer at the Missoula Winery
As most of you know, we love traveling. What’s more, is that we love road trips. Mallory and I have known each other for a few years now, mainly seeing each other at friends weddings and baby showers. However, when she and Steve got engaged and they asked us to be apart of their Montana wedding at Steve’s family business, the Missoula Winery, a friendship immediately started to bloom. We were so excited to hear that they were planning a short engagement and an intimate wedding with close friends and family at a very special place to them. Not only is their wedding venue part of the family, it was also where they had their first date.
These two are like two peas in a pod. The morning of the wedding, we only heard about how they couldn’t wait to see each other and have some time alone. At their first look, it was obvious how much they needed to be together on their wedding day (a luxury many couples don’t get to experience) and how connected and in love these two are. Mallory and Steve, thank you so much for having us be apart of this incredible time with y’all! We are truly honored to have you in our lives and call you friends! Thank you so much for the excuse to take two weeks off and drive up to Montana for your special day. We love you both and can’t wait to see where life and marriage take you!
Love, Mike and Tay
