Lyons Wedding | Julia & Eric

Earlier this month Julia and Eric were married in Lyons on Julia’s family’s amazing property.  I’ve been excited to shoot their wedding since the moment Julia contacted me about it.  You see, Julia and I go way back. :) When I was a senior in high school I worked at Lyons Elementary School as part of their after-school child care program.  She was the sweetest little second-grader and one of my favorites.  During library time we would grab blank paper, pencils and books and practice drawing characters from its pages. I’m pretty sure in my box of old high school stuff I still have a picture that Julia drew for me. :) Nine years later I took Julia’s high school senior portraits. That session is still one of my very favorites.  Though my memory is a bit hazy, I’m pretty sure I remember Julia mentioning a thing or two about Eric while I was taking her senior portraits.  So when Julia emailed me last summer with news of their engagement I just couldn’t wait to photograph their wedding.  Julia, I still think of you as that sweet second-grader I knew so well sixteen years ago and I think you’ve found a perfect match in Eric.  Congratulations!

Snowy Vail Winter Wedding | Sonnenalp | Abby & Sean

What a marvelous way to close out the 2015 wedding season. Abby and Sean’s marriage in Vail was everything I love about weddings–so much laughter, love and joy; so many happy tears, hugs and smiles.  Add to that a foot of freshly-fallen snow and an easy-going bride & groom up for heading into the cold for some winter-wonderland-y photos…ahhh.  Perfect wrap-up to 2015.  :) Congratulations Abby & Sean! vail_wedding_gettingready_bride1vail_wedding_gettingready_bride2vail_wedding_gettingready_bride3vail_wedding_gettingready_bride4vail_wedding_gettingready_bride5vail_wedding_gettingready_bride7vail_wedding_gettingready_bride8vail_wedding_gettingready_groomvail_wedding_gettingready_groom2vail_wedding_gettingready_groom3vail_wedding_gettingready_groom4vail_wedding_gettingready_groom5The snowy first look:vail_winter_wedding_firstlookvail_winter_wedding_snowy_bride_groomvail_winter_wedding_snowy_bride_groom_individualportraitsvail_winter_wedding_snowy_bride_groom2vail_winter_wedding_snowy_bride_groom3vail_winter_wedding_snowy_bride_groom4vail_winter_wedding_sonnenalp_bridal_partyvail_winter_wedding_sonnenalp_bridal_party2vail_winter_wedding_sonnenalp_collage
