I had the priviledge to photograph Ryan and Jenny's beautiful Colorado Wedding at Crooked Willow Farms. Ryan is my brother-in-law, and it was so special that I was able to document some of the most intimate moments of their wedding. Ryan and Jenny have such an amazingly sweet realtionship. He is protective and chilvarous, and she is selfless, thoughtful and a joy to be around. Their love for eachother is tangible, and watching how excited they were to be getting married reminds you of how all weddings should be. This wedding was completley DIY, and the amount of personal touches were in abundance! I think my mother-in-law made around 200 felt flowers! Ryan and Jenny, you created the intimate, beautiful and friends and family focused wedding you dreamed of! Hope you enjoy the memories.
Their first look was one of the prettiest and most special I've been a part of. I had Ryan wait way up on this hill and Jenny walked through the long grass to get to him. I love Colorado!
These are my little guys as the ring bearers. Pretty cute if you ask me. Our little one, Rhys, happens to love his dadda and as soon as he saw me, he booked it down the isle into my arms. You'll see it if you watch the video at the end of the post!
In the midst of photographing the wedding, I shot some clips of video as well and put together this video of their day. Hope you like it!

Weddings are full of moments, full of detail, love, emotion, and so many other things. But sometimes the most beautiful things happen right in the middle of it all happening.

Every year, there is a big photo convention where photographers come from all over the world to see the latest and greatest new equipment or wedding goods but many come to see old friends fom across the country or globe and have a good time. I spent some money on a new system so I can now carry on my body 6 cameras and I'm pretty happy about that. But I really go out there to see old friends and make new ones. There was a lot of that this year!
I brought an old canon point and shoot which broke the first night, then borrowed one of Nate Kaiser's (Image is Found) on the second night of craziness. The color shots were Kodak Portra 160 and the rest were Kodak Tmax 400. It was a fun trip to say the least!

Sam and Tricia are one of those couples I really connected with on their engagement shoot and it was so much fun being a part of their Ojai wedding. So casual and warm in personality and a wildly fun bridal party. Some of the most gorgeous flowers by Rockrose Floral Design and details by All You Need is Love Events. So fun looking back on their wedding.
I ended up shooting some video on their wedding day and putting a little re-cap video together for them. Take a watch:

Stewart and Jaclyn are a couple I love and am so excited for thier wedding this June. Knowing I shoot film, they wanted to do something a little different with their shoot and asked me to shoot the whole thing in black and white. Loved the idea! And as you scroll down, you'll see how sweet they are and how much fun we had on their shoot!!
