Chris & Becca | Wedding at Hudson Gardens

Chris and Becca are one of the sweetest and most fun loving couples we have worked with. They are both so loving with one another, and so expressive. It was a joy to photograph their wedding day, and the love that they share.

Chris & Becca decided to do a different variation of a "first look" before their ceremony.  Becca wanted to be able to see Chris and give him a kiss before the ceremony, but not let him see her.  Chris was blindfolded, and the two of them were able to talk and be near one another before they said "I do". 

Their wedding and reception was held at The Inn, at Hudson Gardens and Event Center. This venue is just perfect for an evening wedding. The lighting that comes through the area is gorgeous and creates the perfect atmosphere for the ceremony.

Chris and Becca incorporated a "wine ceremony" into their wedding ceremony. It is such an interesting and elegant twist to the traditional unity candle, or unity sand.

The two of them walked back up the aisle with their precious little girl in tow. Their love for this little girl is so sweet to see. It is evident that their daughter is their world.

After the ceremony, the sunset created the most beautiful glow for their formal pictures around the gardens. Hudson Gardens simply cannot be beat for it's beautiful backdrops. Anywhere you are in the gardens provides the perfect atmosphere for pictures of the bride and groom. Chris and Becca were incredibly easy to work with, and we just love the series of photos we captured.

 The reception was such a celebration of Chris & Becca's life together.

We loved that they even incorporated a "father-daughter" dance for Chris and their baby girl.

When it was time for the garter toss, the "ESPN Monday Night Football" theme began to play, and Chris put the garter on a football with his best man before tossing it to all the single guys.  We just love the shot Scott got of the best man making the perfect catch!

One of the guests brought fake mustaches to the reception, and it was hilarious to see everyone wearing them and dancing around.

Chris and Becca, we are so thankful we had the opportunity to meet the two of you and photograph your wedding day. You two are such genuine people, and we know you will have a lasting marriage. We pray your journey together is always full of as much love and laughter as there was on your wedding day. You are raising such a beautiful daughter, and we cannot wait to see how your family grows. Congratulations!

Tim & Lauren | Ellis Ranch Wedding

Tim and Lauren's wedding day was held at the beautiful Ellis Ranch in Loveland.  This venue was the perfect atmosphere for their laid back, yet classy wedding.  Scott and I absolutely love this venue. 

Tim and Lauren decided to do some "behind the door" pictures together prior to the ceremony.  We love doing this with our couples who are not doing a first look.  This is always such a special moment during the wedding day.  The images we got during this moment are so powerful. 

Lauren rode in to the ceremony with her dad in a white horse drawn carriage.

The wedding ceremony was just perfect for this couple.  They had many special Christian elements to their ceremony which integrated their strong faith and demonstrated their love for one another as well as the Lord.  It was beautiful.

Though rain threatened to come during their formal pictures, it never did more than a little sprinkle.  We were blessed by some dramatic clouds and gorgeous lighting on the hogback as the sun was starting to go down in the canyon.


The love between Tim and Lauren is so strong, and is evident in each of the images of the two of them together.

The reception for Tim and Lauren was a wonderful celebration, and everyone enjoyed the evening dancing the night away.

Tim and Lauren, it was such an honor to photograph your wedding day.  Thank you for allowing us to be a part of it and capture your day for you.  We know you two will have a lifelong marriage full of love and happiness.  We pray God blesses the two of you abundantly in all that you do.  The two of you deserve all the best!  We cannot wait to see where God takes the two of you together.  Congratulations!

McReavy Family

We have had the honor of photographing the McReavys over the past two years. It has been such a joy to watch this family grow and change over that time. This family is full of happiness and laughter. We love being able to capture the special little moments in their lives which will be treasured for generations.  We are already looking forward to photographing the McReavys in the years to come.
