Best of 2016 | Colorado Destination Wedding Photographer | Alchemy Creative

December 31, 2016

ok. so here we are. apparently about to enter an entirely new year.

this one really snuck up on me guys…cause didn’t July JUST happen? just me?

ok, so let’s rewind a bit.

4 countries | u.s . france . iceland  .  dominican republic

11 states | colorado . iowa . nebraska . oregon . wyoming . utah . florida . arizona . new york . ohio . south carolina .

32 engagement sessions. 50 weddings.

70 couples total. seventy. that knocked me back a bit

i’ve been going through all the names and numbers and timelines and collaborating vendors and venues…which is all very technical and ingenuine to me when at the end of the day…or calendar year… does not represent what these photos and people are to me at all.

what i do is…well…pretty obvious.but if you’re new here (OH HEY!), i make photographs.

but as i’ve spent the last week pouring through all of my work from this whole year, it’s bigger than that.

i’ve gotten to know 70 couples. 140 beautiful, hilarious, brilliant, truly inspiring human beings of varying ages, races, cultural and religious backgrounds. 140 real life people that scoured through tons of  websites or were referred by one of my previous couples/friends and decided together, “oh hell yeah, this Brittany girl is the one for us, she’s our girl.” ( my sister and my cousin really had no choice in the matter ;))

50 weddings means 50 couples that have chosen me to document the moments and people celebrating that big “this is where my heart will stay, laying it all on the line, you are my best version of forever and i want you and us for keeps.” I’ve shared these moments with just two people and the wilderness around us and I’ve shared them in big crowded churches with hundreds of well-wishing loved ones all over the country and a few others this year.

                                                     when i think about it like that, it makes me feel allll the feels.                                                (and if you were to walk into my room/office like my boyfriend just did…it would be super apparent and you might be thinking “hey, why are you crying? you’ve been sitting alone at a desk for 3 hours, what could’ve possibly taken place that you would need to cry like that?!…oh you just really love your job? ok.”)

there’s no adequate way for me to summarize a year full of new friendships, travel + adventure, and love. of  chasing light, hustling hard, of 6 months of very little sleep, roadtrips, crazy amounts of laughter, big long hugs, of learning and a whole lot of growth and some hard (but necessary)  life lessons.

and i know if you’ve even spent 15 minutes with me in… ever you’ve heard me say this but…

life is all the magic.

thank you to every single human (and yes, all of your dogs too because, give me all the puuupps!)  that has entered my life and supported my little business.

what i do really is such a gift and i’m beyond lucky to get to share it with all of you everyday.

i hope if nothing else, you’re all feeling really grateful + thankful and have it on your list of resolutions/self promises to really take all the magic in. accept every new day as a blank slate to create the life + happiness +ideas + experiences you deserve.

cheers to all that 2017 has to offer, and i’d love hear some of your resolutions + dreams!

…oh and you should have a listen to this masterpiece, because it was essentially the soundtrack to my year.

BEHIND THE LENS

MEET BRittany

Photographer, mother, eternal optimist - most inspired by music, the great outdoors, and you.

I’m Brittany! mother to a couple blue-eyed, wicked smart kids– tattoo haver – red lipstick wearer – total moment junkie – married to the actual best person on planet earth – whatever the opposite of a green-thumb is *r.i.p every plant i’ve ever owned*
eternally optimistic. perpetually cold. hair + makeup artist. still-storyteller. beholder of beauty. colorado native with a heart that is set on fire in the great outdoors.
lover and documentarian of life + love (and everything that comes along with it)

Tell-tale signs that I may be a good fit for you and your love: 
because you’re a night-owl and a morning person, because you enjoy the quiet sound of snow falling. because you find inspiration in just about anything. because you like your music loud and your hugs long. because you’re a big fan of the written word. because it’s never too late for things like “i love you’s” and a piece (or 3) of dark chocolate. because kitchens and living rooms make for the best dancing. because honesty. because flowers for no reason at all. because love is big and wonderful and important and the most beautiful choice you get to make. because kindness.because netflix marathons. because tears from hard laughter.because hard work feels good. because friends who feel like family. because spontaneous road trips to anywhere. because gifs and baby animals. 
because viewing my work makes you feel almost as happy as I feel creating it.
and because to me, telling your unique story, capturing your day, would be an honor.
If your love is BIG fat loud messy, imperfectly perfect, hilarious, dreamy, mountain moving, almost annoying its so good, kind of love. You get me and I get you. Love is a big deal and documenting all the big and seemingly tiny moments, is what I do best. 

Whether you’re celebrating with a big affair or keeping it intimate with an elopement, capturing YOUR kind of love is what I strive for.
