Here at Basecamp Visual, our hope is to create real and inspiring Colorado elopement films + photographs that evoke a timeless sense of adventure, exploration, love and connection.

But WHY?

Easy. Because we value marriage. We value the two of you. We know exactly how hard and beautiful this journey is.

We're Dave + Shanna, your Breckenridge, Colorado based husband + wife photography & videography team. Knowing you - really knowing you - and learning who you are and what makes you tick and how you fell in love gives us the tools we need to authentically show you what we see from behind the camera. It's our hope that during future challenges and days that really flat out suck you'll be able to look back on your films + photos and be reminded of your love's foundation. Our why is simple. Your story is important and you deserve beautiful, visual reminders of that.

Welcome to Basecamp Visual. Let's explore your story.

Everyone wants to hire their talented best friend to capture their wedding

but you can’t make your talented best friend work on your wedding day. So, we had to find some new best friends, through months of internet “dating” *ahem* Instagram “stalking” we found the perfect pair. From the first conference call to the last selfie, Dave and Shanna were THE dynamic, talented best friends to capture our wedding. 

Dave and Shanna are remarkable visionaries. Through complications like an avalanche, snow storms, and power outages, they stuck beside us offering solutions while keeping us in good spirits. Their spirited audacity and willingness to go every extra mile just to tell our love story with those authentic moments, means we get to relive our wedding for the rest of our lives. Dave and Shanna aren’t just going to be another vendor at you wedding, they are genuine people who you’re going to want to share the rest of your life with.
