Whitney & Joel Georgetown Colorado Wedding Photographer

Georgetown Colroado Guanella Pass Wedding Photographer Whitney and Joel

39°35'44.4"N 105°42'50.2"W. Those were the precise coordinates Whitney and Joel provided me with for their ceremony site. Navigate your way there and you'll find yourself on Guanella Pass, a mountain summit surrounded by breathtaking views. The week of the wedding winter winds swept in along with heavy rain, and the decision was made to move things to Georgetown, the historic town in the valley below. This allowed more family—who would not have been able to weather the snowy arctic tundra—to join in the ceremony. I view this small sacrifice as a beautiful picture of Whitney and Joel's care for their community; a willingness to lay down their plans and desires for the ones they love. That's a powerful way to begin a marriage, and it was an honor and joy to be a part of their celebration.

Hannah & Houston Annapolis Maryland Backyard Wedding Photographer

Annapolis-Maryland-Backyard-Wedding-Photographer

In early May, I made my way out to the East Coast for Hannah and Houston's wedding in the backyard of Houston's childhood home. For a day already charged with profound meaning, I have always been drawn to backyard weddings, their subtle beauty, and the emotional weight inherent in a place of personal significance. And for this day in particular, family and friends came together beautifully to pull off the celebration. Hannah had her mom style her hair for her. Houston's dad home-brewed beers of all varieties. Houston's mom even arranged for me to stay close by with a sweet, neighbor family. After the ceremony, we wandered through a wooded path down to the water's edge where Hannah and Houston shared their first kiss several years before. In every way, this day was very special for me to be a part of, and I am deeply grateful to Hannah, Houston and their families and friends for welcoming me into the fold, and making me feel right at home in Maryland.
