Colorado Wedding Photographers | Best of 2018, a Year in Review

January 4, 2019

2018. A year that in nearly every way possible, is going to be impossible to match.

It’s easy to get stuck in the negative when so many…er…challenging things happened every day around the world. I am just extremely lucky to see love daily, in so many forms through my work and in my personal life. It’s not lost on me what a privilege it is to walk out my door and make my way to beautiful locations that are full of nothing but love, and joy and laughter.

In 2018,

I photographed 54 weddings + elopements and 30 engagement + portrait sessions all over Colorado and from the top of the west coast down to the bottom of the east coast.

I did hair + makeup for 44 brides.

I put 42,000 miles on my car (not joking)…and got a new one!

We added video to our roster of creative abilities, and in the first few months Ben filmed 3 weddings!

so.many. roadtrips, including Banff + Jasper National Parks in Canada and Glacier National Park, in addition to visiting Grand Tetons + Yellowstone again.

Tons of concerts and seeing my friends in real life more than once a year(!!!)

We (mostly Ben) tried our hands at our first ever garden…and mostly failed, save for a couple little jalapenos.

skydiving, whitewater rafting with my best friends, alpine lake hiking, catching countless sunrises + sunsets, dirt road dances, wedding planning, meteor showers,  waterfalls, disney world, dips in the ocean.

and oooohh yeah, most importantly, I married the best person on planet earth in front a small group of the people that mean the most to us. I know, it’s very cool and you’re probably wondering how I managed to trick such a wonderful human being into hanging out with me forever, and I dont actually have an answer for you, but it worked…whatever it was.

And I know I say it literally daily, but I just cant even handle the level of incredible that you people are.

The love I have for my couples is borderline ridiculous, and if there’s one thing I’ve taken away from the last year, it’s that I value the importance of creating and documenting the tangible evidence of the legacies of my couples, their families and their stories  above anything else in my business.

Going back through all of the memories captured this year, it felt like I was looking through the wedding photos of my best friends, and I couldn’t feel more proud. I hold each and every single one of you, and the way you remember your wedding day to such a high standard. I photograph every single wedding as if it was my own, and give more of myself to each day than I ever realized before. I work really reeeeeally hard to make sure I dont miss anything, to make sure you get photos of every person you’ve invited to your wedding, whether it’s 20 people or 230 people. To document not only all of the beautiful details you worked so hard to plan for, but also all of the moments happening around you that you may not even witness because you deserve to see how everyone you invited enjoyed the party you spent so long planning for and so thoughtfully put together.

I cry with your parents, I dance with your siblings and laugh hard (at you sometimes, not sorry) with your friends but most importantly, I’m right there cheering you on …even if we’re basically strangers. I  know better than anyone that you dont get a redo of your wedding day, all you have at the end of the day is what I give to you, which is just…really big; the most important thing, and I don’t take it for granted.

To put it as simply as possible,I give a shit

and this collection of photos shows some of the highlights of my work and things that I saw with and for people that really do mean the world to me.

* this collection of 5 billion photos has been put into a slideshow if you’d rather watch something for 11.5 minutes than scroll through this looooong post. there’s music, 4 of my most played songs from 2018.

*if you’re a freshly engaged human being and somehow make it to the bottom of alllllllll of these favorite moments  of mine, theres a list of a few of my favorite wedding vendors + locations, teams of people that excel at what they do in the wedding industry. People who help make wedding magic happen and doing my job easier and even more fun.*

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.
