Garden of the Gods Club, situated perfect at the top of a hill and provides some of the best views in all of Colorado Springs, served as the ideal backdrop for this collaborative styled film.
We had the opportunity to partner with a great team of vendors for this fun styled shoot earlier this summer. The rain came down hard, which, I think, just made the day even better. Sometimes you get the chance to work outside the box a little bit – to push yourself creatively, and to try something different. This film was a small, but fun, example of that. We hope you love it!
Maggie & Ileen – thank you for putting this shoot together!

Between the outpouring of true love and one of the most emotionally charged first looks we’ve ever been apart of, Blake & Lauren’s beautiful Buena Vista, Colorado wedding day was one of our favorite wedding films from 2017.
Blake & Lauren are genuine and beautiful – both inside and out. The Surf Chateau in BV served as the backdrop for their gorgeous ceremony & first look. I’m NOT kidding. You want to check out their first look, stat! A storm rolled through that moved their reception indoors, but they didn’t skip a beat. They were just another example of why we love our couples – they embraced the chaos and in this case, the rain, and just kept dancing.
Their day was filled with an organic style and an easygoing vibe. Blake & Lauren – thank you for having us & congratulations on your marriage!

I recently had the privilege of partnering with Justyna E Butler Photography on the dreamiest anniversary shoot in Rocky Mountain National Park. Sarah & David were incredible to work with; thanks for including me, you two!
We hiked the 2.5 miles up to Dream Lake and were able to get some beautiful shots. I think you’ll agree that it doesn’t get much better than love and some snow capped mountains. I am so excited to share this film with you!
Here are a few of my favorite shots from Justyna. To see her full blog post, head over to her site!

Do you have an idea for an epic elopement or anniversary film? Let’s talk about it!
As Breckenridge was coated in fluffy snow, Joe & Katie, with only myself, the photographer, and officiant as their witnesses, said their “I do’s” in this snowy elopement film.
This day couldn’t have been more beautiful (once I finally made it there!). I couldn’t be happier for Joe & Katie!
Breckenridge is normally about a 2 hour drive from where we live in Colorado Springs. On this day, though, in one of the worst blizzards I’ve been in, and topped with multiple road closures, it took me over 9! I was so grateful by the time I got there and definitely know I’ll plan to head out the day before for any future mountain elopements or weddings!
Sapphire Point Lookout over Lake Dillon & The Lodge at Breckenridge served as the backdrop for this snowy day. It couldn’t have been a more perfect day – even though I got stuck in the snow and the photographer, Emily, had to help dig me out. 🙂

How beautiful is Colorado in the winter? I had been wanting to snag some great aerial shots with my drone for a short film featuring a favorite artist, and the first snow of the season did not disappoint! Anyone who knows me likely also knows about my man crush on Matt Wertz. The guy can do no wrong when it comes to great music! It’s my life and career goal to shoot a music video for him sometime. So, if you’re reading this and you know him, hook me up!
I’ve found (really to no surprise!) that adding aerial shots into my videos adds just an extra “pop” of visual interest. Living in Colorado, it’s easy to get beautiful content, so there’s really no excuse not to get out there any fly. I hope you enjoy it!
