Breckenridge Family Photographer | Lomax Placer Mine & Country Boy Mine

I
headed up to good ol' Summit County last week to meet this awesome family who was visiting all the way from Texas for a family vacation together in Breckenridge, Colorado. We made plans to photograph them starting at the Lomax Placer Mine which is just a tiny drive up the hill on Ski Hill Road and has really cute old log cabins and random mining equipment laying around. We photographed there first for a little bit and then were planning to head over to the Edwin Carter Museum to get a little bit of a mountain view for them. However, I had a little bit more time to explore on this day before we met and I discovered that if you drive up to the Country Boy Mine trailhead there are pretty epic views of the mountains there plus a cool looking old mine. So we finished off our session there instead. I had so much fun laughing and hanging out with this crew. I hope they had a blast hanging out with each other in the mountain scenery of Breckenridge!

Colorado Mountain Wedding in Estes Park | Della Terra Mountain Chateau

K
atherine and Brent were married over Memorial Day weekend at Della Terra Mountain Chateau. This gorgeous Colorado mountain wedding venue is nestled underneath a breathtaking rugged mountain rock face right across the street from the Fall River Visitors Center and entrance to one of the Estes Park sides of Rocky Mountain National Park. With a venue right there at a national park, it's no wonder that a herd of deer dreamily grazed in the backdrop during their wedding ceremony as they proclaimed their vows in front of all of their friends and family. And it was certainly fairytale-esque when the day's fairly heavy rain cleared up just in time for the outdoor ceremony. In fact, the weather remained pretty nice with no more precipitation for the whole rest of the evening. Hosting your wedding at the front steps of a national park pretty much guarantees gorgeous photos in a Colorado forest complete with silly wild turkeys roaming around. As if all of the natural features weren't enough, Della Terra had plenty of beautiful architecture and man-made features to add to the beauty of Katherine and Brent's wedding day scenery. It was the perfect wedding day full of good friends, laughter and good cheer with a lot of love coming from their families. Congratulations to the happy married couple!

Summer Family Photos at South Valley Park | Colorado Family Photographer

T
oday on the blog is a seriously cute and smiley little guy photographed with his family here in Colorado. Not just mom and dad, but grandpa, grandma, and his uncle too! They like the look of the red rock formations so we decided to go check out South Valley Park down in Littleton as an alternative to the more well-known (but always crowded) Red Rocks. I'm so glad we did because it looked gorgeous that evening. It had been a bit windy and rainy earlier that day but by the time we met all was calm and we got the prettiest soft pink sunset light by the end. I love what we got for them!

Summer Camp Wedding Photography | Colorado Mountain Ranch in Boulder

I
am so excited to share this cool summer camp wedding on the blog today. I never had the opportunity to go to a real summer camp as a kid and I was obsessed with the idea. One of my all time favorite movies is Wet Hot American Summer and I had multiple favorite summer camp themed movies as a kid. (Heavyweights anyone? What about Camp Nowhere which I recently watched again and it surprisingly still stands up pretty well)  
 
Needless to say, when Lauren and Galen told me that their wedding celebration would be taking place at a summer camp in the mountains of Boulder, CO I was pumped! Colorado Mountain Ranch is a beautiful place for a wedding. It's pretty high up in the mountains and it has beautiful views from the big covered wraparound porch at the Ponderosa Lodge. I loved the simple rustic feel of their wedding day. The ceremony took place in the big outdoor amphitheater where guests sat on benches smelling the fresh mountain air and enjoying the view of Longs Peak in the distance. And the Pondersosa Lodge where the reception dinner and dancing was held was the perfect setting for a wedding with its log cabin style giving it a nice intimate and cozy feel. Instead of an official first dance Lauren and Galen opted to do a cute rendition of "Baby, it's Cold Outside" before opening up the dance floor for the evening. It was a fun touch and different from anything I've seen before at a wedding!
