New Year’s Day Telluride Elopement

Rebecca and Jeff met me at the top of Prospect Bowl with ski’s and snowboard attached.  I met Andy Konigsmark, from Alpine Chapel, for the first time and he conducted this beautiful Telluride elopement at the top of Prospect!  It was truly a beautiful morning as it snowed on us with moments of sun!  I hope you enjoy this one of a kind Telluride Elopement!

Telluride Proposal

telluride_proposal (3)

Derek and Kacie

Almost one year ago, I was asked to come along on a family hike with my camera by my friend Derek (Cody’s brother).  He was planning on asking his long time girlfriend Kacie to marry him and he wanted to document his Telluride Proposal on film.  Yikes! What a moment to be able to capture.  I had never photographed a proposal but had ALWAYS wanted to.  So…We set out that brisk fall morning to hike Hope Lake near Telluride, Colorado.telluride_proposal Dori, Cody and Jia joined along with friend Liz.telluride_proposal (1) telluride_proposal (5) telluride_proposal (6) telluride_proposal (7) telluride_proposal (35)

To everyone else on the hike it wasn’t out of the ordinary that I hike with my camera since it’s always attached at my hip.  I was able to capture some of my favorite places and people while I was at it!

Plus, I was able to bring my dog Ruger along on the hike!  My little buddy came to work with me!07

Once we got to the lake, Derek was to whisk Kacie away to a private local where he would drop down to one knee.  Although we talked about how it would go down. I don’t think I put much thought into how I was going to be stealthy with a big ol’camera and the fact that near tree line, there isn’t a whole lot of things to hide behind!   Insert giggles here.   I kind of felt like Elmer Fudd, “huntin’ rabbits” trying to sneak along behind them.  I positioned myself behind the only little tree I could find.

The beautiful setting where he asker her to marry him.

Pregnancy and Family Photography Session in Telluride, Colorado

One of my best clients in Telluride, Colorado, who is also one of my besties- Dori, asked me to photograph her beautiful belly for baby Crowe #2!  Not knowing the sex of the baby of course I kept calling it a him.  If you didn’t know this about me, I am always wrong when guessing the sex of a baby. Always WRONG!! LOL! So by calling it a boy, we were all certain it was probably going to be a girl!!  Thank you so much for the absolute honor of being a part of your journey. I love you more than words can express.
