Telluride, Colorado Wedding

I love photographing local weddings.  Brooke and Dave wed June 27, 2014 at San Sophia  in Telluride, Colorado.  Here’s a sneak peak of their wedding photographs.

Brooke grew up in Telluride and Dave proposed to her here on one of their favorite hike to ski runs- Mountain Quail.  I had the pleasure of meeting up with Brooke and Dave last year at Cosmo where our friendship started over the love we had for our furry little, four legged friends.  They told me of their baby, Ellie. A cute labradoodle that they take everywhere.  Being a HUGE dog lover myself we spent most of the evening sharing stories and photographs of our furry little babes.  We were friends immediately!

Their dog Ellie spent the entire day and evening with them.  From the ceremony, to dinner to dancing into the night with them!

I had the amazing honor of photographing this wedding with Randy Barnes of Alpine Wedding Photography, another long time local and friend.  To check out more of Randy’s work check out http://www.alpineweddingphotography.com

This beautiful day was a Soiree Telluride Wedding, put on by Wendy Jacobs Hampton- Owner of Soirée Telluride, http://www.telluridesoiree.com

I love working with Wendy because everyone always has a great time, things always run on time, and she knows exactly when to pull the trigger to make the ceremony happen when those thunder heads start to build!  Well done Wendy!  By the time Brooke made it down the aisle the sprinkling of rain had stopped!  Where only moments before it was hailing!!!  This was such a gorgeous Telluride, Colorado Wedding!  Here’s some more of my favorite images of the day!

So Grammy Jan featured in the photograph above, the matriarch of Brooke’s family is such a special lady.  Everyone was telling me what an amazing woman she is and how much fun she is…  and she played along with my silly little one liners and lit up every photograph that she was in!  Everyone loves Grammy Jan!

Grammy Jan with the Fellas! Loving this image!

Grammy Jan came up to me ( little ol’ me…) at the end of the night and gave me a hug and a kiss and said, “thank you for doing such an amazing job today”.  That was the cherry on top of the perfect day filled with so much love that I was smiling the whole way home!  Thank you to Brooke and Dave, along with their families for the amazing honor of being a part of such a love filled day!  To Wendy at Soirée Telluride for planning the perfect day, To Gigi at the Peaks for taking such wonderful care of us, to Randy Barnes with Alpine Weddings for being my partner in crime helping me photograph this glorious day and to the rest of my vendor family for such an awesome day!
