Chateaux at Fox Meadows

Chateaux at Fox Meadows

 

I loved photographing Shannon and Nick’s wedding at the Chateaux at Fox Meadows!   I had photographed Shannon’s senior photos about ten years before so I was psyched when she called me to photograph her wedding.

 

It was great to work with Christie at Onyx and Pearl Weddings.

 

 

Congratulations Shannon and Nick!

 

The Chateaux at Fox Meadows makes for a beautiful backdrop for wedding photos.

I love it that Arrowhead provides golf carts to take photos on the golf course. Maybe even more importantly, it gives the couple a chance to be alone for a bit after the ceremony.

We went outside to take a few more photos around sunset but my fav ended up being of this random puppy running up to have his belly rubbed. For three dog lovers it was a pretty awesome moment.

The best images aren't of the couple cutting the cake, it's of the guests watching!

Estes Park Engagement

Estes Park Engagement

 

After an incredible trip to France and Greece, it was wonderful to have my first shoot back be with an awesome couple in one of my fav places in the world.  I always love photographing in Rocky Mountain National Park.  And this Estes Park engagement session with Angela and Bill was one of my favs this year.

 

 

I always feel a little spoiled working in Colorado.
