For my last “Wedding Photography Year in Review,” I chose to focus on the lesser seen moments during weddings. This year I want to expand on that to include some of the peripheral scenes and sub-plots that surround weddings. Weddings offer the perfect opportunities to observe new friends meeting for the first time, old friends reconnecting for the first time in a long time, or non-friends hanging out together. Your wedding may be the only time in history where all of the people you know and love will all be together.
2017 was a great year for weddings, full of new challenges and new friends. This year we photographed weddings in Telluride, Ouray, Grand Junction, Ridgway and Montrose. We saw great new venues like The Lark and Sparrow, and old classics like the Beaumont Hotel and Peaks Resort. I got to reconnect with one of my old middle school teachers who happened to be a father of the groom. And I started working with some awesome second shooters and assistants. Julie Barton helped me with a large wedding in Montrose and some of her work can be seen in this collection. Jim Cox asked for my assistance in photographing a wedding in a Grand Junction church with tricky lighting. Keep an eye out for him as you look through the gallery! We also traveled to Denver for a fun family engagement session for a couple that will wed in Palisade in 2018.
Most of all, I am eternally grateful for all of my clients that invited me into their lives to document their big day. I truly enjoyed working with each and every one of you and I look forward to working with all of my 2018 couples!
