The Observatory at Alta Lakes, Telluride Wedding
Telluride Wedding, The First Look
I urge my couples to do first looks for multiple reasons. First, it gives you the chance to soak it in, embrace, and experience the emotions without hundreds of pairs of eyes on you. Second, it allows us to knock out the posed photos so we can cruise through the festivities with candid shots that you’ll love. Lastly, it gives me the chance to sneak into your reception during cocktail hour and photograph all of the hard work you’ve done!
The reason Graham and Gaby chose a first look, is they wanted that time alone. Even with only 7 people in attendance to their wedding, they wanted that time. With a small wedding there really isn’t a timeline, there’s an outline but no timeline. You’re able to take the day as it comes and enjoy every moment.
The Wedding at the Observatory
Their ceremony was heartfelt, emotional and absolutely stunning with the Observatory’s gorgeous backdrop. They walked each other down the aisle and Andy Konigsmark from Alpine Chapel was their officiant.
Why wouldn’t you have a little fun during your family portraits? Yes, I have an outline of the family photographs I always capture but I like to make it fun, unexpected. Spontaneity is where the magic can happen in a photograph. It’s my secret weapon. In the photo above, aren’t you wondering what was said so that everyone looks so relaxed and happy?
After the ceremony we had all the time in the world to explore the beautiful property and try different things! Bottom line, to capture THEIR love , THEIR relationship…..THEM! 🙂
And when you’re at the Observatory, I highly recommend the canoe, because why wouldn’t you on your wedding day?!!
A table set for 9 and a lovely meal prepared by all of them was how I left this amazing family. Loved this wedding at the Observatory in Telluride Colorado.
