Malorie + Danny, The Happiest | The Sanctuary Golf Course | Colorado Wedding Videographer

MD_lightskiss.jpg

Malorie is an old friend of mine.  We used to do gymnastics together way back when, and I just love it with past friends allow me to capture their wedding day!  It just makes it extra special for me.  it's crazy to see how she's grown up and the loving relationship she has with Danny.  Danny is funny, determined, and the way he looks at my friend is all anyone could ask for!  Their wedding at The Sanctuary Golf Course in Sadalia was to die for as well!  Danny's family owns a few Mexican restaurants (that just happen to be my favorite) and their Mariachi band was there to celebrate the couple and serenade the guest at cocktail hour.  It was definitely a first for me!  And let's not forget about the epic sunset the venue provides!

Mal and Danny, thank you so much for allowing me to capture your wedding day!  It truly was an amazing day!  I wish you guys all the best in your future together!!

Lauren + Derek, Hidden Places | Crooked Willow Farms | Colorado Wedding Videographer

LD_firstdance.jpg

They say it's good luck to have rain on your wedding day, but a lot of brides feel like people say that just to make them feel better.  I hope, in the case of Lauren and Derek that it's true!  They braved heavy rain and wind at their Crooked Willow Farms wedding, but luckily they had a breathtaking rain back up in the loft of the barn.  The candles and soft light make the space so romantic!  And despite the rain, they both kept on smiling and in the end they each got to marry their person, and share their first dance under the stars... before it started raining again.

I just love the words from the poem Derek chose to read.  It was the most perfect back drop to their sneak peek film!  And Lauren's dress was all drama with the fitted top and explosion of amazingness at the bottom!  I was so honored to be able to capture their day!  Despite the rain, everything was beautiful and I'm wishing them year of happiness to come!

Eileen + Chris, Adventure Buddies | Winding River Ranch, Granby | Colorado Wedding Videographer

EC_walkinginfield.jpg

I just love when couples are able to truly bring themselves into their wedding and their celebration!  And Eileen and Chris did just that.  From our first meeting at a brewery in the blistering heat, I knew they were such a special couple!  I was so excited for their adventure themed wedding at Winding River Ranch in Granby, Colorado.  And it was such a perfect day!  The weather, the atmosphere, and the couple all pulled together for an amazing day!  And we'll just forget about the giant moose standing just 50 yards away from the ceremony the whole time.  And the fact that I was the closest thing to it!  

Eileen and Chris truly are Adventure Buddies!  From travel, to hiking, to jumping out of planes, they never seem to say no to a new experience.  So here's to many many more adventures fueled by the love between you two!  Thank you for allowing us to capture your love story!

Nina and Adam, From the Heart | Sunspot Lodge, Winter Park, CO | Colorado Wedding Videographer

NA_sunforeheads.jpg

This job of mine has taken me lots of places this summer.  But driving up a ski hill to Nina and Adams wedding was definitely a fist.  Luckily I had an expert navigator and outdoorsy person as my second shooter helping me out, because I would have gotten lost.  haha!  But the drive along twisty dirt roads, and dodging mountain bikers was worth it because the views from the Sunspot Lodge were breathtaking!  360 degree mountains views! 

When I met with Nina, I knew her wedding was going to be beautiful and one heck of a party.  And it was!  As her new husband put it, Nina looked like a fairy tale princess, and they guys has some great style as well!  I also loved Nina's bold bouquet choice, while her maids flowers were softer to go along with their gray toned dresses.  They even had a confetti cannon!  Which I 100% recommend to everyone.  I think I might get one for my living room...

Nina and Adam, thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your wedding day!  It truly was and honor, and I wish you all the best in this new adventure together!

Rebecca + Jacob, The Best Life | Estes Park Destination Wedding | Colorado Wedding Video

RJ_forest.jpg

You know when everyone around you is smiling, you can't help but smile too?  Well that's what it is like to look through the footage from Rebecca and Jacob's Wedding.  These two are so in love, best friends, and always trying to surprise each other.  Really.  Jacob's proposal video was a total surprise to Rebecca with messages from friends and family, then I helped Rebecca make a similar video to surprise Jacob on their wedding day.  Not to be out done, Jacob and his groomsmen immediately set to work on a choreographed dance to "Tale as Old as Time" to surprise Rebecca at the reception.  And if that is any indication, Rebecca and Jacob have an amazing life together a head of them!

I love how these two smiled through their whole day!  Anytime we asked them to pose a certain way, they just fell into it and soaked in the moment.  And their first dance (they kind of had two) really showcased the fun they have together and how they can each be themselves.  It's the type of love everyone searches for and Rebecca and Jacob are so lucky to have it!

Rebecca and Jacob, thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your wedding day!  I'm looking forward to many more hours smiling like an idiot in front of my computer screen at Starbucks, editing together your films!

Audry + Brian Wedding Sneak Peek | The Sanctuary, Sedalia, CO | Colorado Wedding Videographer

It's wedding season!!!  And I could totally add some more exclamation points on there.  But I won't, I'm an adult.  And what better way to kick off the wedding season than an unseasonably warm March wedding!  Audry and Brian really lucked out!  80 degrees when this time last year we were getting over 20 inches of snow!  But their day was so beautiful and you could see into the vistas of Daniels Park for miles!

Audry and Brian opted for a first touch, which was so unique and special.  They read hand written notes and prayed before their ceremony.  A fun alternative to a first look!  Their friends and family sure know how to have a good time too!  It didn't take much to get them on the dance floor!  An just try to keep your mouth closed when you are checking out their bride and groom portraits!

Audry and Brian, it was such an honor to film your wedding and such a great way to kick off the season!  Enjoy!

Mara + Tim | A Love Story | Colorado Wedding Videographer

When I first started setting up Mara and Tim's love story filming, one of the first things she told me was "we don't really like the cold", so naturally I thought we should go to Wash Park!  Ok, we settled on Wash Park and Sugar Bake Shop!

Sometimes I don't get to meet my couples until their filming day for various reasons.  But I got to meet Mara and Tim on their whirlwind stop in Denver all the way from Australia.  Tim is from there originally and Mara knew she had a good thing and moved over there with him.  Mara also told me Tim might be a little camera shy, but you'll see, he is clearly not!

They have the type of love that I love to film!  Comfortable with each other, quick to laugh, and truly best friends.  It's easy to give one little direction and then hang back while things just develop on their own.  I asked them to type up a love note to each other on the vintage typewriter, and even though the M had some trouble, they still managed to say some... eh... sweet words (I think most of it was an inside joke ;)). 

You might want to make sure you aren't drinking some kind of beverage for this, because their proposal story is the best!  Typically, my couples opt to tell their story together, but Mara and Tim wanted to tell theirs separately, and each account makes the story that much sweeter!

I can't wait to film Mara and Tim's wedding this summer at the venue I was married at so long ago!  I haven't been back since and I'm excited to see these two start a new adventure together!

One Simple Fact | Lauren + Rick Wedding Sneak Peek | Lakewood, CO | Wedding Videographer

The last wedding of the season is always a little bittersweet.  It means the end of booked up weekends, the end of telling my daughter I'm going to film a princess, and the start of my back log!  But Lauren and Rick's wedding was a great one to go out on!  From their sweet personal vows, to the perfect butter sunset, to the sparkler exit, we had a blast capturing every moment.  Even the one where we found a giant spider that hitched a ride on Lauren's dress!  I'll admit, I turned the camera off too soon in fear!

But really, Lauren and Rick, thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your wedding day!  You are so lucky to not only have found each other, but now you get to spend forever together.  I wish you all the best in this new adventure together!  And hopefully that crazy spider doesn't come back to haunt you!

Soul's Fire | Alix + Tyler Wedding Sneak Peek | Bailey, CO | Colorado Wedding Videographer

I got to work with Alix and Tyler a few months ago, for their Love Story Film (more on that to come), and it was so great to be back at Deer Creek Valley Ranch for their big day!  Their small intimate gathering was full of love, laughter, and a few tears.  Alix's father passed away several years ago, but he was present throughout the whole day.  From holding out the rain for us, to guiding Alix down the aisle as she walked. 

Alix and Tyler have a fierce kind of love.  One that is full of passion, fire, and those long glances across crowded rooms.  Alix is seriously, a real life Disney Princess!  Those eyes, her tumbling curly hair, and her sweet personality, and Tyler is her tall and handsome prince.  I just loved how settled they looked together.  Grounded, yet they are always on cloud nine.

Alix and Tyler, thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your big day!  Everything was stunning and I can't wait to integrate your Love Story into your full film!

Forever and Ever, Amen | Dani + Travis Wedding Sneak Peek | Colorado Springs, CO

I send every couple a questionnaire a few weeks before their wedding, and I couldn't help but smile when I saw one of Dani's responses.  "We plan to have everyone dancing all night!".  If you know me, you know that dancing is one of my favorite parts of the day to film.  It'sgreat to see everyone letting loose and having a great time on the dance floor.  And though this sneak peek doesn't exactly represent the level of awesome dancing that took place, Dani and Travis, along with their guests delivered.  I had such a fabulous time filming them!

We also ventured into Garden of the Gods for their first look and some epic portraits.  Dani's smile was infectious while she was getting ready, but when she finally go to see her man her smile grew even deeper.  And they way Travis looked at her, as if she was the only woman in the whole world. 

Dani and Travis, thanks so much for allowing me to be a part of your special day!  We had a blast working with you and I hope you love your sneak peek as much as I do!

Carlie + Kahler Wedding Sneak Peek | Winding River Ranch, Grand Lake, CO | Destination Wedding Videographer

This year has brought me to so many new places in my home state of Colorado.  Though I've lived here for almost my entire life, I've rarely strayed from my usual haunts of Denver, the south metro area, and Summit County.  But I'm lucky this job takes me all over this beautiful state I live in.  I remember going to Winter Park with a church group as a kid, but that's about it, so the drive into Grand Lake took my breath away.  You just can't get more scenic Colorado views!

Carlie and Kahler's wedding at the Winding River Ranch didn't disappoint either.  The ranch provided the perfect rustic atmosphere with the mountains towering in the background.  They really had it all; a little mountain, a little water, and a little wide open space.  Their ceremony was officiated by their cousin which, along with their personal vows, brought such a personal touch to their day and their film.  And Carlie also rode into her ceremony on a 4-wheeler, so she wins for most awesome bride ever!  Sure beats the long walk!

Carlie and Kahler, thank you so much for allowing us to be a part of your big day!  We hope your first week and a half of marriage is as happy as your 50th year of marriage!

Hannah + Gurjeet Wedding Sneak Peek | Lionsgate Event Center, Lafayette, CO | Colorado Wedding Videographer

lauging_hg.jpg

In college, I had to take a world cinema course.  It was a 4 hour class that consisted of a lecture and then we watched a movie.  I know, seems easy right, well there were essays involved too.  But, when we got to Indian and Bollywood cinema, I fell in love.  The colors, the music, the traditions, even their symbolism entranced me.  When I started filming weddings, I always secretly hoped I would book an Indian wedding just so I could capture all the beauty and tradition that comes with it.  Which is lucky a former bride referred me to Hannah and Gurjeet and dreams came true!

Their Indian ceremony was so colorful, and musical.  Literally, almost the entire ceremony was music.  Hannah looked beautiful in red and gold with her bangles, and while Gurjeet may have been secretly annoyed by his veil, he had a never ending smile on his face.  The next day, they had their American ceremony, which was equally as beautiful, with Hannah's lacy white dress, and garden ceremony.  And then there was the dancing... a non stop party with all their family and friends.

Hannah and Gurjeet, thank you so much for allowing us to capture your wedding days!  Both cultures come together to create this gorgeous film, just as you two have come together to create a beautiful union.  I wish you all the love and happiness in your future together!

Jeanna + Cesar A Love Story | Golden, CO | Colorado Engagement Videographer

Have I ever mentioned how much I love a good story?  I'm sure I have... and I'll say it again, I love a good story.  Jeanna and Cesar's love story is one of those straight out of a movie.  If you are into the showbiz terms, they totally have a "meet cute".  I'll let them tell the story though.

I first met Jeanna and Cesar when they won this Love Story film at the Wedding Wars Bridal Show earlier this year.  They are quirky, silly, and they have a playful kind of love.  They are also excellent at being filmed.  I would start to put them in a pose and they totally just sunk into exactly what I wanted, no problem.  They are just so comfortable and so in sync they perfectly melted together.

Jeanna and Cesar, thank you for sharing your story with me!  I had a fantastic time filming and getting to know you!

Taryn + Collin Wedding Sneak Peek | Evergreen, CO | Colorado Wedding Videographer

dressinwindow_Mks.jpg

The morning of Taryn and Collin's wedding, we probably all woke up with the same phrase, "It's finally here!".  Taryn and Collin booked me over a year ago for their wedding and after filming their Love Story Film in 2015 I was thrilled that their wedding day had finally arrived!  Taryn and Collin are such a fun couple, who laugh easily and are truly each other's best friend.

Their rustic Evergreen wedding is one for the books.  Taryn wore her mother's wedding dress and it was so gorgeous with all the beading and lace.  Her bridesmaids were equally adorable in their tulle and denim, complete with cowboy boots.  Surrounded by their family and friends, in the beauty of Evergreen, CO, they tied the knot and their first kiss is hands down my favorite!  They have the dip down! 

Taryn and Collin, thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your wedding day.  It means the world to us that our couples trust us with the biggest day of their lives, and allow us to create a beautiful piece of moving art for them.  Enjoy your sneak peek!  There is so much more to come!

Jenifer + Justin, a Love Story | Breckenridge, CO | Colorado Wedding Videographer

The best thing about Love Story Films, is that I'm able to get to know my couple prior to their wedding day.  I love hearing their story, seeing them interact together, and learning more about their personalities.  Jenifer and Justin have an adorable story!  I've worked with couples who were high school sweet hearts, but these two are middle school sweethearts.  And they are still so young at heart.  Their love is playful, familiar, and deep.  They make each other better and I can only imagine what a lifetime together will do. 

I spend a lot of time in Breckenridge, it's one of my favorite towns, so I suggested we head up there for Jenifer and Justin's shoot.  They wanted a mountain feel for their engagement session, and it doesn't get more mountain-y than a Colorado ski town!  The weather was gorgeous, if not a little cold, and we rewarded ourselves with a job well done at Crepes-a la-Carte.  A place they had been talking about since we started!  I probably should have warned them that the crepes were filling, but Justin did admirably taking down two of three.  I had one with my hot chocolate, which I desperately needed for my rapidly freezing fingers.

I'm so excited for Jenifer and Justin's August wedding in Denver!  I'm looking forward to their laughter, love, and the beginning of a lifetime of happiness.

Relive Your Day | Colorado Wedding Videographer

I can't believe that I made this gorgeous film of all my favorite moments from 2015 and forgot to share it!  With the 2016 wedding season kicking off, there's no time like the present.  The thing I love most about my job is the ability to help couples totally relive their wedding day.  They can hear their vows, see their first dance, and enjoy the moments they may have missed.  I also love telling the story of their wedding day, and that's why the sound bite from Stephanie and Brian's August Wedding accompanies this film.  It perfectly sums up marriage and the teamwork and strength it takes to continually love and grow with each other every day.

Looking for a cinematographer for your wedding day?  There are still 2016 dates available!  Contact us and tell us all about your big day!

Laura + Andrew Wedding Sneak Peek | Evergreen Lake House, Evergreen, CO | Colorado Wedding Videographer

The Wednesday prior to Laura and Andrew's wedding day, I was donning my snow boots and shoveling 20 inches of snow off my driveway.  When I saw the forecast called for MORE snow on the Saturday of their wedding day, I cringed.  I was so over snow.  But really, it was a blessing in disguise, because the fresh blanket of snow made their wedding magical.

Laura and Andrew are so sweet, caring, and compassionate with each other.  Just listen to the vows that accompany their film!  I adored their ceremony with sweet vows and sharing a glass of wine (cuz I love wine at any occasion!).  Laura's dress was the perfect compliment to the rustic and snowy setting.  And we could not stop laughing and we tromped through knee deep snow to get the best angles.  At least the brides maids came prepared with their snow boots!

Thank you to Laura and Andrew for allowing us to be a part of your wedding day!  You two are the sweetest couple and I wish you all the best in your life ahead!
