Majestic Mountain Kiss | Lookout Mountain Preserve, CO

By, April 22, 2016

Kristin and Ryan were married at the historic Boettcher Mansion in Golden, Colorado. The wedding featured a gorgeous onsite chapel, an outdoor banquet table, live music, and a mouthwatering dessert station. It was a beautiful event at an extraordinary Colorado wedding venue.

As photographers, we were swept away by the site’s distinctive sandstone formations, abundant forests, and dramatic blue skies. To make the most of our surroundings, we captured a first kiss photo at the nature reserve nearby. As you’ll see below, it was “naturally” amazing.

Wild Basin Lodge | Picturesque Outdoor Bridal Photo Shoot

By, November 20, 2014

Even though snow is falling throughout the country, there are a few spots where fall is still in the air. For example, we just did a bridal fashion shoot at the amazing Wild Basin Lodge in Allenspark, Colorado. We wanted to show off the gorgeous fall weather and these equally breathtaking gowns from Anna Be. Depending on the season, the leaves change any time between early October through late November. If you blink, you can miss the colors at their peak.

Wild Basin Lodge & Event Center, a private event facility, is unique in that it has no traffic, other than event guests. Situated at the Wild Basin entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park, the lodge is located near the town of Estes Park, with nearby hiking, fishing, and horseback riding during the summer months. In winter, the pristine terrain is ideal for cross-country skiing, ice climbing and snowshoeing. We also appreciate that they source their own organic, local, hormone-free meats and fresh line-caught seafood. With indoor and outdoor ceremony locations, we love this year-round venue and its idyllic country setting.

Please enjoy a selection of images from our bridal fashion shoot below!
