Styled Shootopia

Beautiful real couple/professional model. Elegant but modern hair and makeup. Gorgeous gown. Artfully created stationary, florals, and desserts. Timeless colonial venue. Video. And Colorado.

The way that dress moves with Dominique in the photo blows me away!

This shoot was a dream to photograph and so much fun.

It’s impossible to pick a favorite element, but here are a few:

-          Any photographer who denies loving white ceilings and walls is highly suspicious. The light in this space was so pretty – the perfect blank canvas.

Ahh the love. Too much to handle!

-          The colors! White, black, and a touch of gold are timeless. But that green?! Felt so lush and warm. The florals (including the sprouted coconuts!), hand-lettering, desserts, all incorporated these timeless wedding colors.

These place settings were modern, beautiful, and a little glam.

Cannot even deal with all this gorgeous greenery. And of course Dominique! Heart eyes for days.

That lime and coconut song definitely got stuck in my head as I was editing :D

-          Just everything. The styling, the couple, all the different set ups. The incredible designer gown.

These wedding invitations were unique and just gorgeous. They'd be a blast to receive in the mail, and they would make guests SO excited for your wedding.

Those textures! The bouquet, the dress details, the veil. Love.

I'm calling it - traditional wedding cakes are OUT. It's all about sleek, modern, hand painted cakes this year.

Dominique and Gerald are married IRL and have the cutest kiddos. Of course they’re gorgeous, but check out this real love and chemistry. You can’t you can’t fake that. 

This may be my favorite photo from the whole day. This to me is why I could never be a fashion or commercial photographer - I'm addicted to the authentic emotion. I'm addicted to to love.

Simple is sometimes best <3 A couple big flashes brought a little more detail to this shot, but still looks natural :)

And a few behind the scenes fun: 

This is my friend Misty, who I met when I moved to Denver almost six years ago. In addition to being super sweet, kind, and funny, she's an amazing hairdresser.
