We planned to meet at the bottom of the Grand Canyon. I hiked in a few days early, no cell service, no way to communicate that I made it or that the plan was still going forward. We'd never met in person, though we told everyone else that we were old friends in order to not give away the surprise. They rode down on mules, I surprised them along the trail, pretending that I knew who they were. They got married during a private ceremony along the Colorado River and I documented. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We played monopoly and drank wine after the ceremony. We made friends with sweet cowboys who helped me get some of my gear out of the canyon. We shared stories and talked about our futures while creating an experience that I will forever cherish. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Thank you Melissa and Scotty for inviting me into the journey and adventure. It was one hell of a weekend!
Warning- if you have a dog with you on your wedding day... you will get more photos of the dog than of you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ From Anna + Evan's Sante Fe celebration. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #santefewedding #newmexicowedding

There is significance in gathering your community together in the same space. Especially when that space is a magical aspen grove. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Taylor + Eddie, Telluride, CO ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #telluridewedding #tellurideco #mountainwedding
Get to hang out with these two this weekend! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 99% of the reason why I love my job = the people I get to work with/become friends with.
two of the kindest. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Taylor + Eddie. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #TellurideWedding
Anna + Evan. Probably my favorite moment of the day. Walking around downtown Sante Fe, we decided to pop into The Shed for some tequila! Anna’s shot was at least a double and her lei was given to her by a random woman on the street. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🌶🥃💃🕺 #santefewedding #newmexicowedding
Finally catching up on editing. Kind of. Maybe. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ These two were a few of my favorites from 2018. Honored that I got to hear about their journey. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Stephane and Sean from Paris, France in Como, Colorado.
The gondola man offered to take our photo. I love it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ From Carrie and Coleman's elopement in Telluride, CO. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #tellurideelopement #tellurideco

It is amazing to me that after one day, I would be so impacted by these two. If you have the priviledge of knowing Allison and Avery...you know exactly what I'm talking about.
An incredibly kind review from Anna: I can't say enough about Beth! She is a delight, and her work is truly beautiful. She was great leading up to the wedding and fantastic the day of. Beth is a professional, patient, and calm presence on a hectic day (and firm with pushy family members)! Her work is creative and spontaneous and thoughtful, and beautifully captured the feeling of our celebration. This lady has crazy talent! We loved her photography (and her). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Thank you thank you Anna. I feel funny posting reviews but i really liked the part about pushy family members! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #salidacoloradowedding

Editing/processing/delivering wedding photos...like it's my job 😉 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Julia check your email! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #stelmo #buenavistawedding #coloradowedding
Current daily schedule: Wake up. Drink coffee while answering emails. Edit for most of the day. Take a break to go for a run or bike ride with Thyme. Say hi to roommates. Edit some more after dinner until bedtime. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Repeat. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Yes, being a photographer and entrepreneur is amazing. Truly. I couldn't be more thankful for my job! But the reality is that it's often 10+ hour days in front of a computer and a whole lot of self-motivation day in and day out. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ To all of you who have trusted me with taking your photos, Thank you! To all of you still waiting for photos, I promise I'm working on them! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #telluridewedding #coloradomountainwedding
When you walk around town to take some photos on your wedding day and decide that ice cream is the best idea! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ice cream always = the best idea. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #thirteendegreesicecream⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @howlmercantile #salidawedding

The last 3 weeks have been busy to say the least. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A ridiculous amount of driving. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ More images taken than I can fathom. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 10+ hour days, most days. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ but also so many incredible friendships formed and countless memories made. (cheesy? definitely. ...but I don't care)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In the midst of drowning in images the other day...wondering if I was ever going to get caught up and feeling pretty overwhelmed honestly...I got this email from Natalie⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ (here's a snippet)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We talk about our day and our time with you at least three to four times each day. I don't have the words right now to express how special it was to have you with us... but I when I do, I will be sure to tell you :)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I was shocked when I saw our preview. Like. Holy. SHIT. Thank you again for reminding me why we paired up with you. You are so gooooooooooooood. You are SO F'N GOOOOOOOD!!! Tony got teary eye'd looking at them.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Perfect timing Natalie. The feeling is mutual. SO thankful for the cool, fun, intentional humans I get to work with all the time and the adventures both big and small that they invite me to join in on.
Oh ya know...just biking through the local bar after getting married and almost hitting a moose head. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I get to work with the coolest couples. period. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #crestedbuttewedding #crestedbutteweddingphotographer #crestedbutte #crestedbutteelopement #coloradowedding
