A year ago I decided to give away a wedding photography package to celebrate my one year wedding anniversary. I had so many incredible submissions that it was almost impossible to choose. After a lot of thought and consideration I chose Amy and Brandon. Fast forwarder than a year and I could not have been more pleased with the result. Their Beaver Creek, CO wedding was easily one of the most beautiful weddings I have ever had the pleasure of photographing.
The last time I photographed a wedding in Colorado I was 21 years old and had essentially no clue what I was doing. Seven years later I was back on a plane to photograph an amazing couple in one of the most beautiful parts of Colorado. I was warned that afternoon rain storms were quite common and well rain it did. Lucky for us it's also common that these storms don't last long. Shortly after it began the sun was out and we were in the gondola heading up the mountain.
I've seen photos of the Beaver Creek Wedding Deck, but none of them did it justice. As soon as I came around the corner and got a glimpse of the view I was totally floored. Amy and Brandon could not have picked a more beautiful location to exchange their vows. Surrounded by their closest family and friends, they said "I do" and it was absolutely perfect.
We spent the next hour photographing this gorgeous couple. It seemed like everywhere I looked there was an epic location just begging to be used. Amy and Brandon looked like they were straight out of a bridal magazine making my job very easy. Insert a stunning couple into and equally stunning location and it's hard not to come away with something special.
Portraits finished, it was time to check out the reception room. Once again, I was blown away by the beauty of this wedding. Candles, candles and more candles. Romance, elegance, sophistication this room had it all. I have seen a lot of beautiful rooms and this was up there with the best of them. Heart warming speeches, endless laughter and an impressive dance floor completed this beautiful wedding day.
I may have gone a bit overboard with the number of images I posted this time, but I couldn't help myself.
