Sunrise Amphitheater Wedding | Brittany and Matt
On their wedding day, we met this lovely couple at a rental home at the foot of Lee Hill in Boulder. They planned to get ready at the same location, meet for the first look and do some portraits at a couple different locations if possible. As it turned out, it wasn't possible. Best laid plans for a Boulder Mountain Wedding As often happens with weddings, plans go out the window when life intervenes. In this case, the schedule was planned but the reality of the flow of the wedding day made it impossible to do all the things on the schedule. But Brittany and Matt took things in stride. Matt owns the Farm and Smoke food truck so he's no st ...
Catholic Wedding | Colleen and Adam
When the Skype call we schedule with Colleen and Adam included talk of dinosaurs and Arby's, we knew that these two were going to be fun. And when we showed up at Colleen's mother's home in Golden and got a big hug from Colleen like we'd known her all our lives, we knew their Catholic wedding was going to be heartfelt. Getting Ready in Golden Eric had the good fortune to photograph Colleen and her bridesmaids at Colleen's mothers home.

Family Wedding Photos | Dusti & Andrew
So this was a fun one for me! I traveled to Elkhart, IN to do family wedding photos for my cousin's wedding this July and it was special for me to photograph the nuptials of a young man that I have know since he was 5 years-old.  Family Wedding Photos Andrew married Dusti on July 15th after a romance that started when they worked together at Walmart after high school. For me I first met Andrew when my first cousin started dating his mother, Deanna. I was swimming in my grand mother's pool in Jupiter, FL when my older cousin's soon-to-be new family arrived. I was about twelve years old and a pretty good swimmer. My future cousin had never ...

Scottish Wedding | Amy and Peter
Peter carefully donned every element of his Scottish Highland dress from his McLachlan tartan kilt to his sgian-dubh, or dagger that he kept in his long knitted kilt hose. Some people, if they're going to be in a Scottish Wedding, use decorative daggers that aren't sharp or wont even come out of the sheath. His was real. I checked. Highland Dress for a Scottish Wedding Peter and Amy came to Boulder for their wedding even though they live in Los Alamos, New Mexico. They stayed at the Hotel Boulderado and that's where Eric and I first met them - at least in person. We had Skyped before the wedding to get our ducks in a row, but now, on we ...
