Sarah and I flew out to capture Gina and Evan’s backyard Colorado farm wedding. Gina has been a long time friend of mine from Ely, Nevada, back in our days of working at the BLM. Her encouragement to pursue wedding photography is partially why I am where here today. Because of that, it was truly an honor to capture her wedding.
The day began with the first look at Gina & Evan’s property which has an adorable pond and dock. Evan waited anxiously at the end of the dock for his bride to be. He picked her up as soon as he saw her, just as he does every day when he returns home from work. We moved to Evan’s parent’s property for a gorgeous ceremony with heartfelt vows, capped with confetti. The rest of the day was relaxed and torrid. Nothing you wouldn’t expect from a high desert wedding set in Colorado, during the peak of summer. Featuring sunflowers, cornfields, and a big red barn, this wedding was nothing short of photogenic. The sunflowers made for a great backdrop for photos as the sun was setting through them for portraits.
These two were just incredibly patient waiting for the perfect light and setting aside a wealth of time for portraits. There is some Portra 400 shot on my Leica M3 sprinkled throughout. It was fantastic to see some old friends from home and introduce them to Sarah.
Sarah and I made a trip of it and explored the local treasure, Black Canyon National Park just in time for the National Park Centennial celebration. We spent the next day in Boulder before returning home to Seattle. Huge thanks to Sarah for accompanying me on this trip and for her great images.
