as a colorado wedding photographer, i am spoiled with a lot of exquisitely scenic first looks . . . and kirsten + zac’s first look at aspen canyon ranch was no exception! standing on top of the world, watching these two share this incredibly special moment was absolutely breathtaking. (and much to my delight, zac also offered us all hilarious, nonstop comic relief).

kirsten, (aka “kirty”), has reached out to me numerous times over the years for various photography sessions, and i have always been so excited to reconnect with her, and her sweet family. it has been such a treat for me to capture the momentous events in their lives, so when she contacted me last year to see if i was available to photograph her WEDDING, i was overjoyed! i knew that no detail would be overlooked, and more importantly, that every person attending would be SO special . . . and i wasn’t wrong.

kirty got busy getting “fancy” with hair by ivana molet from glam house salon, and makeup by melissa gamboa from mac at nordstrom cherry creek.

her gorgeous pronovias orma dress from maci marie bridal fit her like a glove! meanwhile, zac was starting to look pretty dapper downstairs . . .

(and the colorful, hand made fish-hook boutonnieres added a stunning touch)!

. . . time for the first look!

(and it still makes me crack up every time i see it)!
