Bennet & Hilary — an Autumn Classic

Planning for an autumn wedding in the midwest: trying a year ahead of time to pinpoint the perfect two- or three-week stretch so as to take advantage of perfect weather and seasonal colors, all while evading potential 90-degree temperatures on one end and snow on the other. Quite a conundrum, it can be.

But Bennet and Hilary nailed it. Colors were at their peak and while rain showers rolled in that evening, daytime weather was ideal. Oh, and they chose to wrap the evening with a waffle bar, sooo…

John & Alex — An Elopement in Kansas City

One could reasonably inquire, "There's a lot of fluff out there in wedding world... what's absolutely necessary for a wedding?" To which I respond – in tandem with this set of pictures – by saying, "Not much... maybe a friend, your dog if you so choose, an officiant and some greenery?" 

John & Alex threw caution to the wind and did away with a lot of the traditional wedding pieces in lieu of heading to Liberty Memorial on a Monday afternoon, making things official, and then setting out for a few portraits with a good friend and their dog in tow. I was lucky enough to not only document said activities but be a legal witness, and the entire afternoon was just delightful.

Hunter & Erin — A Brunch Wedding in Durango

I could throw a lot of the fanciest, most glowing words at these folks and their wedding. It was some kind of celebration in one of the more cozy, picturesque nooks of southwest Colorado; and most importantly it was perfectly, well, them. Hunter & Erin were wed in the late morning next to a creek just a short walk off the beaten path amidst their closest friends and family; lunch was served underneath the shedding cottonwoods; and lawn games were aplenty.
