Katie and Zach had the most intimate destination wedding in Colorado. Their love for each other was like nothing else that I have seen with other couples. When you decide to hire me as your wedding photographer, I can be as involved as the mom from Mean Girls or I can lay low while still capturing all of the important details and authentic moments. The great part about it is that you get to decide!
Most importantly, Katie wanted their intimate Colorado wedding to be captured in the most genuine way. Their outdoor ceremony was full of gorgeous landscapes that were perfect for their outdoor destination wedding. My favorite part about capturing Katie and Zach was the little moments in between when Zach would check in with Katie to see how she was actually doing. Sometimes weddings can be a whirlwind and a lot of times the couple does not get take a moment and breathe it all in, but Zach made sure his girl was taken care of and that they had time to actually look around and enjoy it.
Katie and Zach’s first look was full of emotion. You could just see how happy they were to be around each other after not seeing one another all day. Their first look took place in a private, gorgeous clearing that allowed them to have an intimate time together. Not only do I recommend to have your first look in a private location, but I also recommend to not tell anyone but your planner (and photographer, of course) about it. This way you can show your genuine love to one another and not be distracted by wedding things or family members. Katie and Zach were able to show their true emotions because they were completely present. Now they will have these memories preserved to look back on forever.
All in all, Their intimate outdoor wedding will always remain in my heart. Katie and Zach weren’t the types to get distracted by drama. They didn’t care for any of the distractions that their family brought. They just focused on loving each other and enjoying their romantic and special day. Their deep and caring love for each other really stood out to me and made their wedding one of a kind.
A big thank you to all the wonderful vendors who made Katie and Zach’s wedding happen!
