Jordan and Taylor’s Elopement by Pagosa Springs Photographers

Jordan and Taylor came to Pagosa Springs CO from Texas to elope in a secluded spot down a dirt road with beautiful mountain views.  They plan to move to Colorado before too long because it is, of course, prettier than where they currently live.   Jordan’s mom was the only other person present at their wedding besides myself and my husband Ken.

Jordan was working as a case worker for child protection services and Taylor is a retired disabled navy veteran.  He has a service dog named Major, who you can see in some of their wedding images.  They are super sweet and so very much in love – I felt like we were spying on their intimate wedding (well we were sorta).

The wonderfully talented makeup and hair artist, Sophie Owens, got Jordan all pretty for the ceremony and photographs.  The beautiful bridal bouquet came from Angela’s Flowers in Pagosa Springs.  Unfortunately, you can’t see said beautiful bridal bouquet because it got left behind at their room.  It was too late to go back because it would have gotten dark before we could finish.  Just as we were finishing up and they were signing the Marriage License, it began to rain and rain and rain.  That’s supposed to be good luck.

Gregg and Livia’s Wedding by Durango Photographers

Gregg and Livia were married in Pagosa Springs in a very secluded spot in the mountains with a small group of friends and family.  It was a beautiful day, although it did get chilly once that sun went down.

After the ceremony we went back to their condo in Pagosa Springs for a reception under a tent set up in the back yard.  They hope to move back here as soon as they are able to do so.

They live in Texas but met in Brazil where Livia was born and raised.  Gregg is a pilot for American Airlines and Livia is going to school to be an architect.

They have beautiful dreams and aspirations and I know they will accomplish great things.

Enjoy!

Lexi and Michael’s Wedding in Durango CO

Lexi and Michael came from Farmington NM and were married at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Durango CO on a warm summer day.  It was a beautiful ceremony and there were lots of family and friends in attendance to celebrate with the happy couple.

After the wedding ceremony, we all went to Rio Angel’s Retreat, also in Durango CO, for the reception.  They planned a great reception with lots of games and activities for the guests, great food, and a lot of reminiscing with people not seen in a while.

We also photographed their engagement session and created a beautiful guest signing book using those images.  The guests signed on one side of the album and their engagement images were on the other side.  It was a big hit!  You can see the post about that engagement session and album here.

Lexi was an engineer, but has since gone on to a new career since they have moved to Albuquerque.  Michael is a pharmacist, so they are both well educated and will live a happy life together.  They also like to hike and camp.

I’m so happy for them and wish them the best on all of their future endeavors.

Enjoy!

Bonnie and Justin’s Wedding by Durango CO Photographers

Bonnie and Justin met in college 20 yrs ago, they dated, but then broke up over a misunderstanding.  They went their separate ways, married other people, and lived very different lives for many years.

They reconnected after both divorced, found they were meant for each other, and the rest is marital history!  She has a daughter, Maddison, who is 10 yrs old, and he has two sons who are 14 and 17.  The kids were all part of their very special day and they did a ceremony to combine everyone into one happy family.

Justin is an attorney living in Sanford CO, and Bonnie lives in Salt Lake City UT.   They’ve been having a long distance relationship for quite a while, so now Justin will be moving to UT so the newly reunited couple can live happily ever after.  Awww.

I loved the way Bonnie and Justin were having such a fun time interacting with their friends and family during the wedding ceremony.

The wedding took place at Antlers on the Creek Bed and Breakfast in Durango CO.  Susan is the owner of Antlers and she does a fabulous job of taking care of her guests.

Kim and Ryan’s Wedding in Durango CO

This beautiful couple came from Texas to Durango to celebrate their wedding with friends and family.  I have so many couples from Texas who love Durango and want to get married here because of the beautiful scenery.

We did some photographs of them getting ready, then a First Look Session.  I took them to a good friend’s home for some awesome images of just the two of them.  My friend’s home and land is amazing.  They have an old cabin, a gorgeous hand carved bench, and a dock next to a lake.  Then we returned to the rented house, did all the family photographs, and then the ceremony.  It all worked out perfectly.

Enjoy some of their images.

Lizzy and Richard’s Wedding by Durango Photographers

Lizzy and Richard live in Durango CO and were married at the beautiful Antlers on the Creek Bed and Breakfast.   Susan is the proprietor at Antlers and they do the catering, the wedding cake, and the flowers.   Lizzy’s gorgeous wedding gown came from Occasions Bridal in Durango.

It was a fun, laid back wedding with around 30 guests and we had a great time photographing the entire group.  Lizzy, Richard, and their one man/one woman wedding party were a blast.  My hubby and I love photographing fun fabulous weddings.

Enjoy their wedding images.

Engagement Album by Durango Wedding Photographers

This is the cover and a few pages from Lexi and Michael’s Engagement Album.  It is also a Guest Signing Book for the wedding day.  Their wedding guests will be able to sign their names, leave their congratulations, and send their love to the couple.

These guest signing albums are amazing keepsakes and since they are professional high quality pages that are thick and lay flat when opened, the coffee table is the perfect place to display it for everyone to look through.

I’m excited to photograph their wedding next Saturday and then they’ll have a Wedding Album, which will be more pages and larger than the engagement album, so they’ll need more room on that coffee table.
