Colorado Wedding Planner: My Favorite Moment of a Wedding Part 2
Posted by elizabeth waldmann on January 9th, 2018
I decided when I did my first post of ‘My Favorite Wedding Moment’, that I wanted to make it a yearly thing…because I love it so much! Click here to see the original post. In addition that, I love how the father of the bride looks walking their daughter down the aisle. Their chest is out a little farther, they are standing a little taller and couldn’t look more proud. I adore it! Check out these photos below. All the feels!
Colorado Wedding Planner: Rachael & Jay
Posted by johnna-patton on November 21st, 2017
Rachael and Jay had a Rocky Mountain wedding at Timber Ridge on top of North Peak in Keystone, Colorado. As a Colorado wedding planner I work with many different personalities each wedding season. I have to say Rachael and Jay were pure joy! These two were crazy about each other and had such a great sense of humor I just have to share. I love it when a couple can inject humor into their wedding day. Exhibit A: See below for a photo of their wedding day favors. Exhibit B: Jay and Rachael’s family had a surprise video for Rachael. Apparently Rachel tried out for the dive team in high school and had a video of her not so stellar performance. Rachel’s sister not only showed the video at the wedding–Jay and Rachel’s entire family went to the same pool and shot a video of each of them mimicking her dive. It’s true! The whole room was in tears. A huge thank you to IN Phtotography for capturing all of the fun that day.

Breckenridge Wedding Planner: Chat with a couple Wedding Photographers :)
Posted by elizabeth waldmann on January 20th, 2017
I recently had the opportunity to sit down with a couple of my new favorite photographers, Joe and Fred of VN Images. They are amazing guys and their photos aren’t bad either 🙂 See below for the amazing wedding they did at Cheesman Park. Food trucks were onsite and the reception was held at Jazz at Jacks.
To book, check out their website vn-images.com or call 970.485.4562.
What got you into wedding photography? Joe: I love taking photos of people. It’s always something new and different. It’s also very fast paced which keeps my attention.
Fred: For me it seemed like a natural progression. I started off shooting anything I could, which led to a few portrait sessions for friends. One of those sessions led to our first wedding. Taking photos of humans on their wedding day is crazy fast and fun.
What style(s) do you specialize in? Joe: I would say street photography. I have a great passion in traveling; one of my favorite things to do while traveling is taking my camera out on the street and capturing images that tell a story. I like having a unique style. I think that’s pretty important in choosing a wedding photographer.
Fred: If I had to choose, it would be wildlife and portraits. I love being outdoors. I grew up hunting. I’ve traded in the bows and guns for a camera. Wildlife photography demands all of the patience and skills of hunting, without the mess. I also really enjoy portraits. So far my portrait shoots have been in great locations and the clients have a lot of fun with it.
What is your favorite Summit County venue? Joe: I haven’t shot a wedding in Summit County. But being a person that likes to be outside I would have to say in the mountains, being in a large Aspen grove or one of my favorite mountain lakes.
Fred: I’m with Joe on this one. I haven’t shot a wedding here yet. But this is my home and there are thousands of locations up here. It would be almost impossible to pick a bad spot.
What’s your favorite part of a wedding day? Joe: I would have to say before the wedding when the bride and groom are hanging out with their friends and loved ones. Everyone is a little more relaxed and comfortable.
Fred: I like reception and the party. It’s fun to watch everyone start to let go and get a bit loose. It leads to some of the best candid shots a photographer could ask for.
What is your favorite time of year to shoot? Joe: Fall. The colors are always spectacular up here in Summit County, from the trees to the brush to the perfect crisp blue sky!
Fred: Every season has something spectacular about, but to sound like a broken record, I agree with Joe. The fall is my favorite season and no matter where you are, the colors are guaranteed to be perfect.
Do you follow a shot list? Or do you prefer to have free reign to capture the festivities how you see fit? Joe: I try to keep a small shot list. I mean, you have to get the kiss! But I also enjoy roaming around and freelancing.
Fred: There is always a shot list. And the clients will have one too. We like to keep the process of how we get those shots very free and open.
What kind of equipment do you use? Joe: Iphone…j/k. I’m shooting with a Canon 6d and my lens of choice would be my nifty 50
Fred: Canon 6D with a quiver of lenses.
Do you always have a second shooter? Yes. That is the beauty of going in on a partnership with Fred. We can literally be in two places at once. We both have different eyes as well.
Fred: What he said.
Breckenridge Wedding Planner: Tim and Shane
Posted by johnna-patton on October 10th, 2016
Sometimes I can just feel the love between two people. This was absolutely the case with Tim and Shane! Tim and Shane gathered close friends and family for an intimate wedding at the Chateau of Breckenridge in late May. Chateau of Breckenridge is a beautiful luxury home in the heart of Breckenridge, managed by Paragon Lodging.
Tim and Shane packed their wedding weekend with local fun! They treated all of their guests, most of whom were from out of state, to a welcome party at Napper Tandy’s–an Irish Pub in downtown Breckenridge and distillery tours at Breckenridge Distillery. Thank you so much Josh Montgomery for sharing these amazing photos!
