Saturday was fun. With @belleviewevents
This photo breaks every compositional rule...but I love it.
When the bridesmaid dives for the frisbee. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ **No beer was harmed in the documentation of this photo**
August is for editing.
Telluride and the funky magic.

Sometimes there's magic in not seeing the full story.
I really like the humans I get to work with in this job of mine.
Saturday. Everything I dream of. true authenticity. lots and lots of laughter. sentimentality. and a good dose of crude yet inspiringly intelligent insight. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ congrats Katey + Aaron! can't wait to grab a beer with you two in Berkeley! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ (yes those are jean overalls! and he wore them well!)
When you plan a sparkler exit but the fire danger is too high...
This was right before a police officer came over, congratulated the couple and proceeded to tell me I needed to move my car asap. #oops. congrats Sarah and James!
Last week: Denver. Salida. Crested Butte. Denver. Buena Vista. Telluride. Now dog sitting 3 dogs plus my own while I try to catch up on the huge list of editing from the past month. Its been a whirlwind lately...but oh so good. Hopefully I'll share more here soon! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ From Megan and Ryan's wedding in Telluride last Sunday. It was extremely hot that day and we sought reprieve in this coffee shop for some cold water. Sometimes the best photos come from the unexpected moments. Actually...99.9% of them do.
From Danielle + Rene's Salida celebration last weekend. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ While Danielle was getting ready, we talked a bit about how unique wedding celebrations really are. From an anthropological perspective...they are a fascinating and rich tradition that often gets overshadowed with the cheesiness and facade of it all. But at its core, a wedding is the coming together of lives. Not just of the couple, but of the families and friends surrounding that couple. As Rene's father eloquently stated during the ceremony (which I'll put my own spin on it here), our choices have a ripple effect to the community surrounding us, and for Danielle and Rene it culminated in the bringing together of two communities for a day of celebration in the mountains of Colorado. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Congrats Danielle + Rene! Can't wait to hang with you two soon!
Congrats to Victor and Suzannah last weekend at The River Bend in Lyons. It was a day filled with strong community, strong drinks, and strong dance moves. I will forever feel grateful to get to witness and document celebrations such as this! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I tried to drive home after the wedding...but got really sleepy half-way in and so I slept in my car on Kenosha Pass. I didn't even make it to the back seat...just pulled my sleeping bag over me in the front seat and 7 hours later...finished the drive. #worthit!
Huge congrats to Jason and Lindsay in Durango last Friday! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ There was SUP boarding, BBQ-ing, volleyballing, lots of laughing, camping, friends reuniting, dancing, and sunset watching. It was truly an honor to be a small part in this weekend of celebration
Well...yesterday was officially my favorite photoshoot of ALL TIME! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Ray and Gwen, Salida staples and love birds for 68 years. I just can't contain myself with how incredible these two are!
Congrats CC + Archie! It was awesome to get to document your day. Scroll through for a little preview!
More than creating a great photo...I believe in having a great experience. above all. live the moment...great photos will come from that. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #yellowfeathermotto
Had two surprise engagements this past weekend. I hid in some bushes and told a bunch of lies to trick the ladies. Went horseback riding to an amazing waterfall and met some incredible people. I do like this job of mine. . . . . . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #coloradoweddingphotographer #mountainweddingphotographer #mountainwedding #yellowfeather #elopementphotographer #bohobride #authenticlovemag #weddingpioneer #loveandwildhearts #adventurebrides #weddingphotoinspiration #salidacolorado
This weekend marks the end of my off-season (but somehow I still have a huge list of off-season tasks that didn't get done!). Let the craziness begin!!
Taxes done and a whole new bookkeeping program in place! The things you don’t think about when you start a photography career...
I used to make fun of wedding photography and sometimes I still think engagement photos are super cheesy. but then I think about future kids and grandkids seeing photos like this.... and then I believe in this work all over again.
