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
The moments in between are my favorite.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ From last year in Bozeman, MT
Shot for Rocky Mountain Bride Magazine's Gown Guide. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ At Barnes and Noble nationwide now (along with a slew of other locations that are too numerous to list here).

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
November is for editing. Lots and lots of editing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #buenavistawedding @surfhotelbv #coloradowedding
Ended my wedding season in one of my favorite places with amazing friends around every corner. Thanks for letting me tag along Anna and Evan...the weekend was one for the books for sure! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #santefewedding
Allison and Avery...you two are the epitome of love. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Thanks for letting me be there to document the magic! #borntobang
Ok Colorado. We get it... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . . . . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #tellurideelopement #telluridewedding #tellurideweddingphotographer #coloradoelopement #coloradowedding #telluride #yellowfeather
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
if nothing else...I hope you have fun while we take photos.
My biggest advice to any couple for their wedding is: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Do not be afraid to do things differently. Look at every piece of the wedding day and ask yourself why you're doing it. Is it because your parents expect you to? Because society expects you to? Because thats just what happens at weddings? Or because it has real meaning to you? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Wear jean overalls to your fancy mountain wedding if you want to. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Make fun of the patriarchy during your ceremony if you want to.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Don't cut the cake if you don't want to. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Don't have flowers unless you really want them.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Yes, be respectful to your guests and make sure they're comfortable and celebrated. And yes, maybe its just easier to cut the cake and do that one traditional thing for fun and make Aunt Betsy smile.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But PLEASE create something that is meaningful to you. No matter how many people think you’re crazy or weird. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It will be that much more beautiful for it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @belleviewevents ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #crestedbuttewedding #crestedbutteweddingphotographer #crestedbutte
Location: Latitude + Longitude somewhere deep in the woods outside of Telluride. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I was smiling ear to ear during this elopement. The whole time. And whole 4 hour drive home. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Congrats Carrie + Coleman! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #tellurideelopement #telluridewedding #tellurideweddingphotographer #coloradoelopement #coloradowedding #telluride #yellowfeather
The beauty of the people I get to photograph comes from their character. Taylor and Eddie are two beautiful souls that captivate all around them. Their smiles are contagious. They look deep into your eyes when they talk to you. They have a passion for life that is genuine and filled with love. It is truly an honor to get to be a small part in celebrations like this. ...(And they happen to be very good lookin too) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Huge shoutout to the dream imagery team @emmaczeck was the best second shooter on the planet and @wanderonstudios for killer videography skills! You all became treasured friends during this adventure. #telluridewedding #tellurideweddingphotographer #coloradowedding #telluride #yellowfeather
There's always a moment during a wedding day when I stop taking photos and just honor the moment. This was right before one of those moments. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ From Meredith and Tim's wedding at Rocky Mountain Biological Lab in Gothic, Colorado⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #crestedbuttewedding #crestedbutteweddingphotographer #crestedbutte #gothiccolorado #rockymountainbiologicallaboratory #crestedbutteelopement #coloradowedding #crestedbutteelopement
