These two babes are still on their honeymoon in Greece (and we are totally loving seeing photos of their adventures there together!) ... but hopefully they have access to their emails, because their wedding gallery is currently chillin' in their inboxes. As soon as we know they've scoped it out, we'll be sending their gallery to their amazing vendor team! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Something that we are eternally grateful for during this INSANELY busy season is being able to outsource processing to our editor at @evolveimaging ... We are able to focus on other important parts of our lives (like our kids! going to the gym! sleeeeeeping!) without having to worry about sitting in front of the computer for 12+ hours straight to edit a wedding. 👏 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Our couples are taken care of, we are taken care of and most importantly, we're able to turn off the computer, sleep normal hours and ENJOY LIFE during crazy fall wedding season 😍. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you wanna chat more with us about how outsourcing is the best investment we've made in ourselves all year long ... ask your questions below! ⬇️⬇️⬇️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ couple @fitzyfitzmaurice + @sarahkellyfitz #drinksonfitzy #radweddings venue @brookviewranch coordinator @cmweddingsevents dj @bouquetsound floral @garden_florist hair @hairbyadeena suit @keprebels dress @lilibridals jewelry @robbinsbrothers rentals @ricketyswank
⚡️ Soooo can #ThursdayTips become a thing? Yes? Let’s do it!! 📸 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you've been following us for a long time, you'll know that we don't do a whole lot of stiff posing. Standing still and not doing anything is just not fun for us, and honestly - it's not fun for our couples, either. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you're a photographer, try this: next time you're at a shoot, have your couple pretend they're at the altar holding hands. Then ask them to tell you their proposal story, while maintaining eye contact. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When you're doing this, you'll get natural smiles out of your couples, coy grins, play arguments over what actually happened and REAL moments of emotion and love. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Try it next time, and let us know how it goes! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 💕 @iamkatystanley + @ezimdub hair >> @katyharthair

Memories made in the mountains stay with our hearts forever. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We hiked around Crystal Creek Reservoir yesterday with Jason and Ashley, we watched the most gloriously orange sunset, peeked the fall foliage that's starting to show its beautiful face, and even spotted some remainders of some recent snow on the top of Pikes Peak. We laughed and danced, we talked about life and love, we joked about parenting and longed for time's past in North Dakota (where Jason is originally from and we lived the last year of Randy's time in the Air Force). And we all certainly appreciated the cooler temps and glorious mountain breeze. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Basically, it was the best time in the mountains with friends and we can't WAIT for their wedding next fall in an apple orchard (seriously all the heart eyes).
We are taking a break from our normal wedding-and-engagement schedule to bring you something personal and equally amazing: our son Daniel and his girlfriend, Maddie. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Yesterday, Danny had his high school homecoming dance. I (Ash) sat with him on the couch at Maddie's house, watching college football, waiting for Maddie to put the finishing touches of her look. When Maddie came out into the living room and Danny saw her for the first time, he broke out into the biggest smile and his eyes lit up and let's be honest, him seeing her made ME smile. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It's hard to believe Danny is almost 16, and he's growing up into the most amazing young man. Caring and kind, and a gentleman. He's been with Maddie for nearly a year now (crazy, we know) and we absolutely love her, too. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So glad we were able to catch a couple photos of them before they headed out to their first real high school dance, and that Maddie puts up with our photo shenanigans (better get used to it, honey! haha!).
When it rains, just dance. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ couple >> @mandalieb #journeytokelley planner/florist >> @priveeventdesign venue >> @deercreekvalleyranch bride's gown >> @SarahSeven hair >> @Presleehairstyle makeup >> @makeupbyheatherb
At nearly EVERY wedding, at least a couple of guests come up to talk to us about our business. Most of our couples have talked about us with their friends and family beforehand, so they know how much we travel for weddings and they always ask ... HOW do you get to do that? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The truth is, we get to travel because our couples tell their friends about us, and their experience with us. And they want that for their friends. And WE want that for their friends. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We're BIG believers of birds of a feather flock together - meaning that when our couples recommend us to their friends, we know we're in good company. We already know we're going to love them, and cherish them, and have the best time ... even if that means boarding an airplane, or driving somewhere a few hours away and spending the night away from our kids. And if we're going to take time away from our family, you MEAN something to us. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Now, let's get real: We have a bucket list of places we'd LOVE to photograph a wedding. Ireland, Scotland and Iceland tops our international list, Hawaii tops Ashley's, and Alaska is at the very tippy-top of Randy's. If you've got a friend getting married in any of these spots, tag 'em! 😘 🌎: @newly.scripted
