Lauren and Zach's wedding at Montefair Farms in Charlottesville, VA.Read More
Sarah and Ryan's wedding was absolutely spectacular! Surrounded by friends and family, they said their vows with the rolling mountains as their backdrop. I am so happy to have gotten to know these two!
Here's what Sarah said about how Ryan proposed:
"Ryan and I met as freshmen at The Ohio State University. We lived in the same dorm and were a group called The Mount Leadership Society together. This past October, Ryan and I went back to Columbus for an Ohio State football game. We landed in Columbus and immediately went to campus after borrowing my parents' car. Our first stop was to see the bricks in the Union with our names on them. After leaving the Union we stopped at the "whispering wall". The whispering wall is long wall that you can whisper secrets across and the person at the other end can hear. Ryan said "lets go do the wall". He had me go on the tall end of the wall and he went to the side where you had to get down to whisper. He asked me to say something to test out the wall and the response I got was "Will you Marry Me". When I looked over he was already on one knee with the ring out and a giant smile on his face. My answer was "of course."" - Sarah

"That night, Max wore his wolf suit again..."
"And made mischief of one kind and another"
"He wanted to be where someone loved him best of all"
"So he sailed"
"Back over a year"
"And in and out of weeks"
"And she made him king"
"Of all the Wild Things"
"Inside of all of us is a Wild Thing"
"Let the Wild Rumpus start"
"I'll eat you up I love you so..."
-excerpts from Maurice Sendak "Where the Wild Things Are"
Each season we discover unique clients that enjoy expressing themselves through their wedding day. As wedding professionals we often dream of how we would describe ourselves in a unique way to show future clients that we can work with them to get outside the typical wedding box. We love taking something seemingly so ordinary and turning it into an extraordinary experience. This is where our idea for a "Where the Wild Things Are" photoshoot began. We wanted to take the Maurice Sendak's childhood story that we all know and love and find a way to turn it into a love story. One you could center your wedding on, pulling out layers of details that make the touching words and details of the book carry throughout. We wanted to incorporate many of these scenes from the book, as well as pull in lines from the story to tuck into each scene. From Max’s bedroom growing into the world all around him, to him sailing to some far off land to find his wild thing. Max is made king and makes his wild thing his queen. Their entire day is spent in the wilderness, embracing the beautiful scenery around them. Layering in details of leathers and fur, hinting that the wild things are close by. From the wild picked florals to the hair and bark and feather details in our cake. We cared the beautiful and playful details throughout this wedding. Ending our day of extraordinary adventure with a wild rumpus. And as Max and his bride awake to find they have returned home, they realized they were where someone loved them the most.

Talk about a small world - Dave worked with Lynn in Pittsburgh and we found out soon after we had moved out to Denver that she had also made the move! It was so fantastic to be able to photograph Patrick and Lynn on a gorgeous day in the foothills of this amazing city we live in. I feel as though I say this about every couple that I get to photograph, but it's so true... these two fit so perfectly together. It was an added bonus that their beautiful vizsla joined in on the session!
