rocky mountain national park || a family hike to dream lake

I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in. – John Muir

In an effort to get a little more personal around here, we’re sharing some fun shots from a recent hike in Rocky Mountain National Park last Friday! September is insanity in wedding world, so a day away from the screens was much needed for our little family. We hiked and ate and drank a lot of beer and it was glorious.

We made up the 1.1 mile hike to Dream Lake just as the sun was setting and the light was amazing! We joke that nothing motivates me (Shanna) like good food and good light. To say this day was the best day all around only begins to cover it. So grateful for this life.

Jessica + Magnum || A Colorado Springs Photo Gallery

 The Rustic Lace Barn | Colorado Springs, CO

This season has been incredible and filled with unending highs and opportunities. Grateful doesn’t begin to cover it. As Dave & I refine and learn exactly what it looks like to grow Basecamp, we’ve had to dig deep to define our goals and toss away all fear of our biggest and wildest dreams. As a strictly video based company with no plans to add stills, this decision was both a little scary and wildly thrilling, and one we’ve been absolutely blown away by at the support. Our love of photography stemmed from a desire to capture the lives of our boys and rapidly grew into something neither of us expected but wholeheartedly welcomed. A supplement to what we were already doing and have long loved, crafting creative films for the wildest of hearts, the final push to officially add stills was an easy and natural one. It only made sense. Ya know?

Jess + Mags’ wedding day was something out of a dream. The longer we do this and the more couples we meet, the ones that really etch a place in your heart are the ones who love without caution. You can see it in their tear-filled eyes and hear it in the tremble of their vows. The adoration is evident and the affection is natural. That was these two and their new little family of three (or soon-to-be FOUR, as they so sweetly and subtly announced during their vows – cue ALL THE TEARS.) The honor of being asked to photograph their wedding is something I’ll always hold close to my heart. So, without further adieu and with SO MUCH excitement, here is a peek into some of our favorites from the image gallery of Jessica & Magnum.

You two – thank you. Your day was a favorite and we are beyond thrilled for you. Congratulations!

PS. We hope you enjoy the extra little surprise short film at the end. 🙂

teasers

“I am in search of wild things who love other wild things.” – N.R. Hart

 

Did you know we offer social media teasers as an affordable add-on to your existing film package? At 60 seconds long, they are perfect for Facebook and Instagram and a great way to give your friends and family a peek into your day! You can expect to receive your teaser between 1-2 weeks post elopement or wedding and then we encourage you to share the heck out of it again and again until you receive your full highlight film. 🙂

Want to see an example first? These are a few of our favorites.


Our 60 second social media teasers are super fun and a great way to share a sneak peak of your wedding or elopement film with your friends & family on Facebook and Instagram. We try to keep up with sharing stills from each event over on IG – do you follow us yet, by the way? – and we promise to try to be better at FB – you can follow us there, too! – but these short teasers are an easy & affordable way to fill that void while you’re waiting for your full highlight film! Contact us today to add one to your package!

Shelly & Russ || A Thomasville County, Georgia Wedding Film

“Dear Heavenly Father, we thank you for this day. We thank you for the many blessings that we see surrounding us today. We thank you for the gift of Russel and Shelly. We thank you for the gift of marriage.”

Russ and Shelly. Truly, their film says it all far better than we could. Filled with beauty, light, and Southern hospitality, this wedding day was a real kicker straight to the heart. This one was such an incredible honor to be a witness of. Shelly’s vows were filled with so much honesty, humor, and joy – and goodness, just look at her when he turns around to see her for the first time. So. Good.

Shelly & Russ – thank you for inviting us to film your wedding day. It was a day we won’t soon forget. Congratulations!

Did you know we travel? We’re currently renovating a 1978 Airstream Argosy, which we’ll be settling in full time with our two boys!

Garden of the Gods Club || A Rocky Mountain Bride Styled Film

“What an act of faith. The moment you enter into any kind of human undertaking and relationship. What an act of faith. You’ve given yourself up. Surrender. See, and love is an act of surrender to another person. Total abandonment. I give myself to you.”

We recently announced our membership with Rocky Mountain Bride as part of their Gem Collective. Have you had the opportunity to check out this amazing resource yet? It’s is truly a one stop shop for the best of the best in the Rocky Mountain Region. We are thrilled to be listed among such an incredible group of artists!

As a part of this membership, we were asked to join in a beautiful styled shoot for their 2018 Spring publication. Hosted by the Garden of the Gods Club, the view was gorgeous (I’m not kidding when I say it’s the BEST view in all of Colorado Springs) and the light – as you’ll see – impeccable. We are always thrilled to be asked to partner on styled shoots and this one was an easy favorite. The team was amazing, and we are so excited to finally be able to share this film with you!

RMB – thank you for being such an incredible inspiration and guide for all our Rocky Mountain couples. They, and WE, are so lucky to have you!
