04 Feb Alayna and Mark | Estes Park Wedding

Simply put. We love you.

So much so that we want to clone you over and over again and keep shooting you guys forever.  Totally laid back and graceful, you let us do what we do and trusted us.  Photographer’s dream comes true.

We love that you had a truly unique experience making your day totally and completely “you”.   And if you’re a newly engaged couple and reading this here are some ideas on how to make your big day a little different:

– Hire a trolley to cart around the ENTIRE wedding (Bride & Groom, guests, photographers, whoever) weaving through Rocky Mountain National Park (with Alayna as Park Guide!).  And while you’re at it, keep it stocked with beer and wine- special shout out to brother of the groom for that!

– Have your first dance as part of your ceremony (I still get misty when I think about their dance). First time we’ve seen this done at a wedding and it was so intimate and felt so personal.  I felt like we could feel your guests surrounding you with love, so special.

– Pose for your wedding formals amidst a grandiose mountain setting in a 100 year old national park and while there, why not take a refreshing stroll through a meandering mountain stream?

– Let’s not forget when the Officiant mistakenly announced you as “Mr. and Mrs. Riis (Alaya’s now maiden name).  Okay, no one planned for that to happen but seriously you couldn’t have written that any better.  I’m still giggling.

May you stay authentic and genuine. And thank you.  Thank you, thank you, and thank you!
