as a colorado wedding photographer, you can imagine that i get to bare witness to a LOT of lovely couples tying the knot…but i am not exaggerating when i say that i have never seen a bride and groom more EXCITED, or grateful to be marrying one another. their emotion was palpable, and it completely melted my heart. i can’t count the number of times i got choked up while editing their photos, as i relived the many special moments throughout their day…their love for each other just radiates! and i love that they were all about having fun together 🙂

when jarhae contacted me last year to schedule an engagement session, i was SO excited! if you don’t know this girl, she’s an adorably pint-sized sweetheart, with an incredible outlook on life, and an unspoken coolness about her. i soon discovered that her (now husband) scott, is of course an equally sweet, happy, rad, perfect match. not only was i delighted to work with this awesome couple, but also to have the pleasure of meeting both of their incredible families! it was so uplifting to witness the endless love that simply surrounded these two.

the bridal party prepared at the westin hotel in avon, which could not have been a more perfect setting. their gorgeous bouquets were prepared by eden an alternative florist.

  1. Julia these are so beautiful! I love the excellent shots of the bridal party and that one of the women looking out the window. Love your perspectives on the actual ceremony and how you captured the tiny bride among all the tall people. So much fun.
