Telluride Elopement

Telluride Elopement in the beautiful setting of Mountain Village in Telluride, Colorado.

Tom and Libby Eloped in Telluride, Colorado¬†in August ūüôā

Telluride Elopement

One of my favorite images from the day!!!

Tom and Libby met 3 years ago and literally fell in love immediately! Her words not mine! ¬†They wanted to say their “I do’s” with just them and elope in beautiful Telluride, Colorado. ¬†They felt like a Telluride elopement was, “just their style”.

Telluride Elopement

I didn’t get to meet them until the day they said, “I do” but we had several phone conversations leading up to their beautiful, heart-felt day in Telluride. ¬†It was through these conversations that I learned what “their love” was about and who they are as a couple! ¬†They set out to climb Mount Sneffels, a 14,000 foot peak here in Telluride, CO the day before their elopement. ¬†A couple after my own heart, to explore life’s wonders, an adventure with your best friend and to just be with one another surrounded by a view like no-other. ¬†Tom and Libby, I simply adore you two and who you are as individuals and a couple. ¬†I believe the images from your Telluride elopement convey this lovely gift¬†you share.

Telluride Winter Elopement

Telluride Winter Elopement, Gotta love it! Have I told you lately that I love my job?!!

A Telluride winter elopement is¬†one of the most romantic things a couple can do, in my opinion! A majestic, snowy setting with the one that you love. ¬†It doesn’t get much better than that- eh?

telluride_wedding_photographer

A Telluride winter elopement allows you the time to travel to different locations, to have your photographs taken with no timeline!

I love capturing the little moments in between the moments. ¬†This gorgeous couple didn’t even know I was photographing them at the time.

telluride_wedding_photographer

Telluride winter elopements allow you the time to have fun and be your self!  Without a large guest list you can make your day about the things that truly matter. However the two of you define this.

telluride_wedding_photographer

LOVE.

From the first phone conversation I had with John, I knew¬†my photography style¬†would be a wonderful fit for him and his wife to be. ¬†John and Derleen have been dreaming about getting married in Telluride for a couple of years and thought that winter would be perfect! ¬†They actually wanted to be married in a blizzard! ¬†And a blizzard is what they got ūüôā

telluride winter elopement

Catching snowflakes on her tongue! Love this!

They braved the cold weather! ¬†With their hand full of guests, we took a couple of photographs in the sideways snow and then headed down to Allred’s Restaurant where we were able to finish their portraits inside where it was warm! ¬†They had an amazing intimate meal and I headed home. ¬†Their day was exactly what they wanted and it was an honor to be a part of it!

Gorrono Ranch Telluride Wedding

Gorrono Ranch Wedding in Telluride, Colorado!
gorrono_telluride_wedding (34)gorrono_telluride_wedding (49)On June 28, 2015, Nicole and Robert were married in an absolutely gorgeous wedding at Gorrono Ranch, in Telluride, CO.  In preparation, Nicole got ready at Telluride Mountain Lodge. She had her hair done by Jen Achter, from XY Salon, and her makeup applied by Erin Cain. Her beautiful bouquet from New Leaf Design was waiting for her to carry down the aisle. Their beautiful day was planned by Meehan and Telluride Unveiled and went off without a hitch!  Along side the wonderful staff of TSG at Gorrono Ranch provided an unforgettable time, meeting the needs of everyone while providing a 5 star meal in the most gorgeous setting!

She looked flawless as we went to meet Robert at the fishing pier in Mountain Village. As we pulled up, raindrops started falling. We offered Nicole an umbrella, but she respectfully declined it as she walked to see her future husband for the first time. gorrono_telluride_wedding (8) gorrono_telluride_wedding (9)gorrono_telluride_wedding (18)

It was easy to shoot stunning photographs of this gorgeous couple. Although Robert and Nicole live in San Diego, they both feel a special bond with the mountains. Something we bonded over the first time we met a year earlier. ¬†It was simple to be at ease in this magical environment. These two are a prime example of true love and it makes my job easy to capture the essence of this special bond. Having photographed their engagement a year before, I could see how much their love had grown–what a gift to witness!! Their excitement and anticipation for their wedding day was evident, but the love between them was palpable. ¬†I LOVE MY JOB!!!

The ceremony was officiated by¬†Martinique Davis Prohaska, of Wellspring Ceremonies. Marti as we call her, does such an incredible job officiating, providing everyone with the back story of Nicole and Robert’s love and relationship. ¬†She presided over the beautiful vows which brought the bride, groom and other onlookers to tears, and also filled the group with love and laughter.

Their parents beamed with pride watching their children say I do.¬†

Telluride Avant Garde

Jarrett and Alline, were¬†married in Telluride, CO in June of this year. ¬†Knowing that we had the avant garde photography session booked for later in the year, we didn’t have to take up too much time on their wedding day.¬† ¬†They were able to spend more of their time with their guests and family.

telluride wedding photography (1) telluride wedding photography (2) telluride wedding photography (3) telluride wedding photography

Why an Avant Garde Session?

The avant-garde photography session pushes the boundaries of traditional wedding photography. If you love fashion and design editorials, abstract or whimsical artwork, architecture or anything out of the norm, or if you just want more photographs of the two of you– this session is for you! ¬†Avant-garde takes place a couple of days after your wedding ‚Äď unless you‚Äôre jetting off right away for your honeymoon, and if that‚Äôs the case we can schedule the session upon your return or in a completely different season for a different look.

The goal? Have fun! And, while we‚Äôre at it, create some stunning artwork. There is no timeline and your dress is already dirty. You can do your hair and make up different, bring props, furniture, non-wedding attire, your dogs ‚Äď or travel to a scenic destination that was different then your wedding day. This is the time to get really creative, relax, and have a great time.

There’s a REASON you and yours chose to get married in the San Juan Mountains, in or near Telluride, Colorado. ¬†Make sure that you allow the time in¬†your wedding day timeline to be able to get creative one-of-a-kind¬†photographs. ¬†It’s very difficult to get stunning¬†shots like in 10 minutes, creativity takes time. ¬†So if you know your wedding day is jammed packed full of family, friends and celebrating make sure you plan ahead for that special photography time on your wedding day otherwise be sure to book the avant garde session! ¬†Why wouldn’t you anyways‚Ķ.Look at what we were able to capture this gorgeous fall day!

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.

telluride wedding photographer (15)

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!
