“From that first moment, it was just you and me.”
Spruce Mountain Ranch in Larkspur, Colorado, is one of those venues you fall in love with immediately, and Crystal and Paul are one of those couples who make you feel the same way. Their story feels triumphant and filled with hope, their love gentle and calm. We get a little emotional with every film we put together, but this one brought tears to our eyes each time we worked through it. And even now, months later as we put together this blog post, their film tugs at our hearts.
Crystal & Paul – working with you both was a true joy. Thank you for including us! We wish you both so much joy and happiness.
“If you know wilderness in the way that you know love, you would be unwilling to let it go… This is the story of our past and it will be the story of our future.” – Terry Tempest Williams
Adam & Rande were married just outside of Durango, Colorado at the base of the trail they hiked on their first date three years prior. You guys, how perfect is that? The aspens glowed as the rain fell, and the snow covered mountains served as the most gorgeous backdrop for this autumn wedding. They wrote some of the most touching vows we’ve ever been lucky enough to witness.
Adam and Rande exude love and hospitality – both for each other and for others. It was evident how well and deeply they are loved by their friends and family, and we were thrilled to be asked to be a part of their day. Here are the social media teaser & full length highlight films from their day.
Adam & Rande – thank you for being dream clients and for inviting us to film your wedding day. Congratulations!

So, you want to find a way to show your clients more about who you are. You’ve got some head shots and a well-written About page on your website. Maybe it doesn’t feel like quite enough, though. There’s got to be more ways to share your “why” than a few quick sentences. How about a brand film?
Let me guess – when you think of a “promotional video” you think of a stuffy, tons of awkward face time, interviewy mess? Am I right? Promo videos have traditionally been so awkward that we don’t even have one of our own… yet. That’s going to change real soon – for us, and we hope for you, too.
We’re revamping those stuffy brand films into something authentic and awesome. Does talking into the camera make you feel kinda queasy? Us, too. I haven’t even figured out how to talk into the camera for IG stories yet. While you definitely never actually look as awkward as you feel, we totally get it. It’s uncomfortable and kinda makes you wanna crawl into a hole.
We want to change that. When you think of creating a brand film for your creative business, you should feel excited about getting your story out there. Your “why” is SO important and we want to help you start sharing it. Why do your clients love you? Why do YOU love you? How do you share your own story each time your share your work?
We’re building a couple creative film options for all you business owners out there and we can’t wait to share with you! Do you have your own idea for a brand film? We’d love to chat and customize something new just for you.
We had the opportunity to tag along with Justyna Butler Photography for this Rocky Mountain National Park brand film and captured her in her element. Justyna is so inspiring and has this way of making you want to sprint after every single dream you have. She’s a no-nonsense, “spread your wings and fly” kind of woman. Respected and adored by fellow professionals and her passionate clients alike, we love her “why” (and her!) and know you will, too.
Want to see more from our partnership with Justyna? Take a look at Sarah & David’s anniversary session.
Feeling inspired? Let’s chat.
“Here’s to all the places we’ve been, and to all the places we’ll go. And here’s to me whispering again and again and again: I love you.” – John Green
It started with a few innocent texts and Facebook messages and quickly escalated to Dave BEGGING me, at what felt like a million months pregnant, to allow him to go to Iceland in September. September, right after our second son would be born. Literally, mere days after. I’m either insane or the coolest wife in the world because without skipping a beat, I told him he MUST GO. I mean, it’s freaking ICELAND. My only stipulation was that I get to go along the next time. You hear that, future elopements of the world? Take me to Iceland.
Living vicariously through the adventures Dave, Jen (from JenDz), and her husband Josh had with Steph & Alex, I almost, ALMOST felt like I was there with them. You guys, Iceland is INCREDIBLE. And Steph wins #bravebride of the year, am I right? Fearless and willing to do anything for the perfect shots, I’m pretty sure she and Alex were both Jen & Dave’s dream couple. By the way – check out Jen’s blog post with all the gorgeous images!
We hope you love this film. It’s one of our favorites.
Are you currently planning your destination wedding? We’d love to tag along to tell your story! I (Shanna) definitely plan to not be pregnant so I can go wherever your adventure takes us. Shoot us a quick email so we can start the conversation!
“All the wild world is beautiful, and it matters but little where we go, to highlands or lowlands, woods or plains, on the sea or land or down among the crystals of waves or high in a balloon in the sky; through all the climates, hot or cold, storms and calms, everywhere and always we are in God’s eternal beauty and love. So universally true is this, the spot where we chance to be always seems the best.” – John Muir
John Muir sings to our souls. The peace his words bring flows through our hearts, and while we were just outside of Washaugal & Skamania, Washington this last fall, filming Jena & Kyler’s treehouse wedding, we were reminded just how vital these deep breaths of fresh air are – and how we must take them often.
Jena & Kyler were married on a treehouse overlooking the rolling mountains of the south side of the Gifford Pinchot National Forest. Literally, a treehouse. A labor of love by Jena’s father, (yes, he built it!) it was seamlessly nestled among the towering trees as though it had always been there.
Surrounded by the love & warmth of their closest friends & family, Jena & Kyler’s day was magical in the way only a wedding in the middle of nowhere can be. We were thrilled to be asked to be a part of their day. Here are the social media teaser & full length highlight films from their day.
Jena & Kyler – congratulations to you both!

Short 30-60 second teasers are such a fun way to share a sneak peak of your wedding or elopement film with your friends & family on social media. Typically set to a quicker pace, teasers are filled with 1-3 second shots from your day. Sometimes we tease with shots from the whole day and sometimes we like to really focus on one special moment, like the first look. Did you know we offer them as an affordable add-on? We try to keep up with sharing stills from each event over on Instagram – do you follow us yet, by the way? – and we promise to try to be better at Facebook – 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!
