We’re a little late posting our Colorado wedding photography year in review for 2014 so please forgive the tardiness. Last year was a great leap forward for our business and we were fortunate to cover so many great love stories. Rather than choose “best of” selection of photographs from previous blog posts, we decided to start from scratch and pull from the archives. It was a ton of fun looking back and reliving these moments. It was even more fun putting together a blog post of brand new frames. In a departure from our typical blogging style we’re including a little back story for each image. So grab the popcorn and join us in looking back at 2014!

The clouds and wind kicked up at the end of Abbey & Chris’s engagement session. The outdoor fire pit at Cheyenne Mountain Resort came to the rescue was to warm things up. The flames also provided an awesome foreground for this photo.
This is a “paparazzi” shot of Jessica & Peter through the trees at Bear Creek Park. One of the (many) things we love about Colorado is the fact that photo sessions are great any time of year.
Reflection shots are always cool. Because they are. Jenny & Matt lit up Old Colorado City on a chilly day.
The second kiss is often better than the first kiss, especially with an amazing background and guests looking on and smiling. We love this shot of Abbey & Chris at Spruce Mountain Ranch.
A photo with personality is often better and more meaningful than a perfectly posed shot. Alyssum & Cullen sticking their tongues out at one another in this photo certainly qualifies.
Many of our weddings are outside, but Shove Chapel is awesome and we gladly welcomed a change of pace. This backlit shot of Jill & Gary really works in monochrome.
This is the only photo in the post without a bride, and Jill & Blake’s little boy and ring bearer is the only worthy replacement. All together now: “aaaawwww!”
Here’s a behind the scenes shot that tells a story. The wonderful staff at Cheyenne Mountain Resort gave Alyssum & Cullen a ride to the other side of the lake in a golf cart to help fulfill our vision for a shot.
An action shot complete with cake flying through air made the blog post for Juli & Jeremy’s Crooked Willow Farms wedding. They kissed and made up with cake on their faces in the aftermath. Fun stuff!
Our time with Mikia & Dustin was short, but we found time to swing by Ute Valley Park to grab some shots of just the two of them before their reception.
This is a shot from our second session with Lisa & Andy, a session that was dependent on mother nature and an open schedule. Snow + Garden of the Gods + a great couple = fantastic photos.
Sometimes it’s a joke and sometimes it’s the keen telepathic powers that couples in love develop. Whatever it is we don’t care, as long as our timing is perfect to nail the shot. Take Stacy & Evan, for example.
A flower girl, a bride, and a minister walked into The Broadmoor, and we captured this moment just before Lisa & Steven’s ceremony. Words aren’t necessary.
Proposals are challenging to photograph, especially when you’ve never met the groom. Thank goodness for technology. Of course she said YES!
Laurie & David’s Cheyenne Mountain Resort wedding was all about family and togetherness. They involved everyone in the celebration, and the Hora highlighted the fun and excitement of their special day.
Incorporating meaningful locations for engagement sessions works wonders. We visited a number of such places with Natalie & Steven, creating new memories rather than roll out a forgettable look-at-the-camera-and-smile routine.
As Evan & Stacy’s reception began to wind down we carved out time for a few more photos of just the two of them. The Club at Flying Horse offered so many choices we could have carried on for hours.
