I had the loveliest time getting to know Kinga + Gabor. They flew down to Asheville to elope at Craggy Gardens, although they are both originally from Hungary. They even taught me a few Hungarian words :) Kinga surprised Gabor after their ceremony with the news that they were having a baby girl! It was such a sweet moment with both of them tearing up and laughing. Elopements are such a special event to be a part of, especially when you have the honor of signing a couple’s marriage license. Thank you Kinga + Gabor, for letting me be a part of your day.

This family session felt more meaningful than it normally does. Katie had lost her father unexpectedly a few days before we were supposed to meet up for our mentor session and real life family shoot (of course, we moved the session to a few months later). Katie told me that her dad believed in her photography career, so she wanted to pursue it with everything she had. With this momentum, she’s been learning and growing so quickly. I enjoyed encouraging her in the early stages of her career, as well as preserving a few hours of real life with their adorable one-year-old, James, husband, and dog.

We spent the evening walking around Plaza Midwood with James showing off how fast and independently he could walk ahead of us. I watched Katie and Patrick sing Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band as a lullaby before they put him in the bath. I know these routine moments won’t last forever. I’m glad that I’m able to capture a glimpse into their world right now, perfect just as it is.

Jacque and Paul have been friends since high school, but their romance didn’t begin until they planned a whirlwind trip around the world. They both took a year off of work and spent the time adventuring to countries far, far away from their home in Denver, Colorado. They chose one of the most beautiful places in Colorado to have their wedding celebration, The Club at Crested Butte. Crested Butte sits at 8885 feet above sea level with mountains surrounding in all directions. It took my breath away figuratively and literally.  A few of my favorite moments:

// Their first look. Jacque walked up to Paul with her back to him. She closed her eyes and took in the moment before she turned around to see his face. I always enjoy anticipatory moments like those.

// Right before the ceremony, Jacque’s parents grabbed each of her hands and they stared silently out at the view from the porch. It was a quiet moment, but I loved the peacefulness and tangible symbol that they were supporting her to the next step of her life.

// Their vows. They were eloquent, personal, real and raw. I saw each bridesmaid shed a few tears.

// The views. Wow. Those mountain views.
