A beautiful poem written and spoken for Danny and Laura, on their wedding day

 ……

“Boulder in May, June in Tucson” by Martha Elizabeth

Boulder in May – the mountains here are blue, green-plum
as Danny painted them, the humidity smudging the sky

as if some god conjured the horizon
through squinted eyes. These piles of rock –

cliffs breaking through ripped stockings
of forest – these can’t have the same creator

as the mountains of Tucson, which glint not with water
but with desert stone, gold-capped teeth

in the parched mouth of Arizona.
Boulder in May is staged for a wedding: even now

the sounds of water surround us; the trees lean in, curious
and swooned; animal sounds taken up by Spring as if instruments.

But I was born in the desert
so different from here, that crooked smile

of stone jutting up from earth, a reminder
that the landscapes of our lives can change so quickly.

I have seen things die in the desert, can look
at an animal and know that it takes to survive it –

the javelina’s hooved cast iron feet, or the rose-tan
skin of a rattlesnake, which even in a line

of a poem curls, hidden. There are those that are built
for sparsity –

I think of a cactus, just now: somehow green
despite the dust it settles into

spines like a crown, arms reaching out
to a perpetual sky, that denies its blue water

for weeks, or months, and still offers
a yellow flower, its gift for what exactly?

I look to you:

who is blooming now in a Boulder spring
hair alight like creeping barberry and blanketflower,

in this time of plenty and know
what stores of love are hidden deep inside your saguaro belly

so that he may turn to you
in times of draught and gather cactus flower,

draw deep drafts of cool pools when all else is barren.

And I look to you:

solid as blue spruce
and see that you’re built for the badlands, your shoulders

made to hug her in dry sun for shade – a familiar wrist
bearing fruit despite seasons of sand.

That is to say:
you can thrive anywhere, together in growth.

So this, here

is not the sound of muted river
or mountain rain;
it is not the wreaths of mist on our heads;
not the hymns of wrens;
it is not a champagne bubble
or even joy in dancing, no –

it is a knowledge of an unyielding and inevitable desert
a horizon that gives nothing but sun and dust

and cut into the sky’s bone-dry blue
are Danny and Laura, in full blossom
​​​​​​despite.

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.
