Farm-Fresh Outdoor Colorado Wedding | Elizabeth and Matthew

By, December 09, 2015

We were delighted to photograph Elizabeth and Matthew’s wedding at The Lyons Farmette. This rustic venue is next to the town of Lyons, Colorado, just east of Rocky Mountain National Park. The property is surrounded by beautiful cottonwood trees, rolling fields, and a tranquil stream.

In addition to hosting beautiful weddings, The Lyons Farmette is also an organic farm and education center. As you would expect, the gorgeous outdoor environment was the perfect location for this energetic young couple to wed. Instead of a hotel suite, the property boasted a charming Airstream trailer, where the bride prepared for her big day. The charming reception site was enhanced by the presence of classic cars, barns, tractors, and farm animals, including Nigerian Dwarf goats :)

For added character, Tracey Eaton of True Blue Vintage Rentals placed antique furniture throughout the venue. The wedding was flowered to precision by Flowers Forever Design. There were countless environmental props for us to use, which led to fun and distinctive photos of their day. We hope you enjoy this Rocky Mountain Wedding full of beauty & fun!

When we photograph a first look, like the one above, we aim to capture the moment in a discreet and romantic spot. We then take a step back and capture all of the emotion as it unfolds.

Wild Basin Lodge | Picturesque Outdoor Bridal Photo Shoot

By, November 20, 2014

Even though snow is falling throughout the country, there are a few spots where fall is still in the air. For example, we just did a bridal fashion shoot at the amazing Wild Basin Lodge in Allenspark, Colorado. We wanted to show off the gorgeous fall weather and these equally breathtaking gowns from Anna Be. Depending on the season, the leaves change any time between early October through late November. If you blink, you can miss the colors at their peak.

Wild Basin Lodge & Event Center, a private event facility, is unique in that it has no traffic, other than event guests. Situated at the Wild Basin entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park, the lodge is located near the town of Estes Park, with nearby hiking, fishing, and horseback riding during the summer months. In winter, the pristine terrain is ideal for cross-country skiing, ice climbing and snowshoeing. We also appreciate that they source their own organic, local, hormone-free meats and fresh line-caught seafood. With indoor and outdoor ceremony locations, we love this year-round venue and its idyllic country setting.

Please enjoy a selection of images from our bridal fashion shoot below!

Denver Botanic Gardens at Chatfield

By, July 17, 2014

Sandra and Craig had a gorgeous wedding at Denver Botanic Gardens at Chatfield, the outdoor, rustic location chosen for their beautiful Colorado wedding. The natural outdoor venue is nestled along the banks of Deer Creek, with the Denver Foothills as the backdrop. The indoor rental facilities are historic buildings, providing classic reception opportunities.

As photographers, we wanted to take advantage of this natural outdoor setting, and create detailed images with a fashionable and timeless vibe. As you’ll see, Sandra and Craig’s charismatic personalities really shone through! :)
