Engagement Session with boy, girl, and snake by durango co photographers

Yes, A Snake – a bull snake to be exact. We were up at the Lion’s Den near Ft Lewis College in Durango CO, and just as we were leaving a bull snake came slithering by our feet. We all jumped a mile, and then Matt said “do you want to take a photo with us holding the snake”, and I said “hell ya”. So he picked it up behind the head and they had a great time, and then wanted to take him home. Kristie’s mom and dad were with us and they vetoed that idea – haha.

We also went to the little park by the Chapel just down the road from Lion’s Den and had a fun time with Matt throwing Kristie over his shoulder, then doing a piggy back ride, and them sitting on the bench overlooking the town. We went to the river and did some photos with them sitting on rocks, and to another small park where there’s a creek running through it and they sat on a log and a park bench.

They’re getting married in September at Dalton Ranch Golf Club. They signed up for that venue at the Wedding Expo back in January. I had the booth right next to them, but Kristie doesn’t remember meeting me there. Here mom just happened to contact me by phone after a google search for durango photographers. So happy we got together for their engagement session and their upcoming wedding.

Enjoy and Thanks for Looking.

Intimate Boudoir Session by Durango CO Photographers

Boudoir by definition means a lady’s dressing room, used for dressing and sleeping. Or in photography it means suggestive images meant to tease the senses.

I think this lovely lady is teasing the senses beautifully, and her hubby loved the album she gave him as a gift. Of course, I don’t show images with her face to keep her privacy.

As with almost every lady I have photographed in a boudoir setting, she was a bit nervous – but a little wine helps, right?

Enjoy and Thanks for Looking.

Wedding in the Snow by Photographers in Durango CO

Dawn and Bill are from Texas where it doesn’t snow too much and there aren’t any mountains or beautiful scenery.  They chose the gorgeous Antler’s on the Creek Bed and Breakfast in Durango CO for their elopement rendezvous.  The beautiful rose bouquet was created by April’s Garden also in Durango, and Chessa Gill was the amazing officiant.

Bill works for Budweiser, and you’ll notice the bud in his hand in a couple photos, and Dawn is the owner of a large athletics gym in TX that teaches young people gymnastics, cheer leading, dancing, and how to grow up to be strong adults.  They are amazing people and I hope they can retire to Durango some day.

They are also crazy and lots of fun. They wanted to get in that snow and play!  You’ll see where they tried to make snow angels, but the snow was a little too crusty so it  just turned into a laugh fest. And those chairs they’re sitting in, yes, they’re covered in hard snow. They were pretty wet by the time we were finished and so they hopped into the hot tub to warm up.

Enjoy!

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.

Robbin and Stuart’s Wedding by Durango Wedding Photographers

Robbin and Stuart are from Texas, but they have family here in Durango and that family has a beautiful home on some beautiful property.   It started raining right at the end of the group photographs so we weren’t able to take advantage of the property to get some couple photographs.  We had to move everything inside and do the rest of the photographs using the stairway in their home.

The rain got even harder as we headed over to the Kennebec restaurant for their reception dinner.  There was lightening and thunder to go along with the rain, so there was no chance of getting any outdoor portraits.  Stuart is a pro golfer who has seen people get struck by lightening, so he wasn’t going to take any chances.

Enjoy their wedding images:

Afton and Travis’ Wedding at Durango Mountain Weddings

Afton and Travis came from sunny Florida to have their wedding here in Durango CO where it happened to be cool and rainy, but they didn’t mind at all.  They were just so happy to be getting married and loved the mountains with all the beautiful scenery.  Their friends and family came from all over the country to witness their vows and have fun at the reception.

Durango Mountain Weddings, aka Purgatory Ski Resort, has many spots to have a wedding.  They chose Dante’s which is at the very very top of the mountain.  It’s a beautiful location and the reception building has 3 floors; the lower is where the bride and her bridesmaids get ready, the middle has the bar and tables for dinner and an area for dancing, and the upper is where the guys get ready.  I get a great workout doing weddings there because I’m going back and forth between the top, middle, and bottom floors (lots of steps).

Enjoy!
