This blond beauty was nothing but pleasant as she battled the wind and the chilly Colorado fall in order to cross the bridge to meet her groom and say “I do.” However, she completely surprised me as she shed her pink spikey shoes in order to be able to hike down to the waterfall for their photos and to play as the last bits of sunset disappeared. Not one complaint came from this barefoot bride, and as we were finishing up and could take the cold and the wind no longer, her groom swept her up for one last moment of just the two of them by the lake. This private moment between them is one of my favorites.
This bride was a cowgirl who married her cowboy in front of all her cowboy friends and family. The twin boys had cowboy hats, the rings had horseshoes on them, and their cake topper was two horses. Her smiles were real and I’m pretty sure they rode off into the sunset.
I love shooting Pinterest brides. This particular bride had a simple idea and brought her stickers. It took a few seconds to make sure they were in the right location and direction, but ultimately turned out pretty fun. A bride with cute shoes is a girl after my own heart.
I love this photo because I love this bride. Meeting up in old town Arvada before their nuptials, this non-traditional couple pranced and danced by the train tracks with the bride-to-be donning a deep purple wedding dress. The photo session was cut short due to a summer rain storm, but no amount of wonky weather was going to stop this couple. With part of the ceremony honoring her Hmong heritage, the couple came to the reception in full uniform with colorful bells and wraps. Rumor has it that she just gave birth last month and that they have a new addition and reason to smile.
There’s just something about the “almost kiss.” That moment of hesitation, expectation, and desire.
