Kaily’s sister and future mother-in-law got to talking one day during a bank transaction. Strangers themselves, some brief small talk connected that Kaily and Will are perfect for each other; they just didn’t know it yet. Will was in the middle of traveling the world, but sure enough he began texting with Kaily. Will said one day, “If you are who I think you are, then I need to meet you in person.” He flew across the world and that was it! Kaily soon joined him on his continued world travels, and two soulmates were reunited. They celebrated their beautiful love story among family and friends on this Solstice weekend.
“When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive- to breathe, to think, to enjoy, and to love.” -Marcus Aurelius (or Amasa’s best man)
Celebrating these two in the foothills was a beautiful and classy affair. I have had the pleasure of witnessing families grow and change. I filmed Amasa's sister marry her husband just two years prior. It's so fun to continue creating memories for the same families.
I had the honor and pleasure of shooting Hannah and Mike’s intimate wedding ceremony in the year 2020 among eleven of their closest family members. The following year they finally celebrated with all of their loved ones and it could not have been a more perfect day for them!
I have learned that this is my favorite kind of wedding experience: making your wedding a full week of vacation with your closest family and friends. We all enjoyed a beautiful few days at the Blue Lake Ranch in Durango, Colorado to celebrate these two soulful people. The relaxation from all who attended was tangible and the love present had a chance to linger and enjoy the people and place. Susan has become a great friend and you might see her assist me at your wedding as she has become a second shooter for my team.
From the constant jokes to the final mic drop, Kelly and Eddie’s wedding day was one for the books. Every song that the dj played was the song of the night as the dance party just kept up leveling. This is what it’s all about, and y’all don’t need any help
From Ian's family gathering during the ceremony to sing to the bride and groom (cried my eyes out behind the camera) to the incredible toasts, every moment of Brooke and Ian's wedding day was filled with so much joy and love. Shoulder presses, human pyramids, constant crowd surfing, guided meditation in the ceremony, and a slam poet MOH speech: this day puts the HIGH in higher love. I have gone on to film two weddings for this growing family and I love getting to see these two again and again!
Stevie Nicks wrote this song while staring out into aspen trees contemplating life’s constant changes. How perfect that El and Connor began their ceremony with this beautifully performed song by @funkiphino surrounded by the flutter of leaves and love. I was so happy to witness again this aunts and cousins sing to the bride and groom and enjoy the extremely fun vibe of this family. Ellory is Ian's cousin from the previous wedding video slide. I love getting to watch this family grow and change.
Ty proposed to Jordyn at this very spot a year prior to their vows. He had an injury that gave him the excuse of staying home for their planned Colorado trip. While Jordyn and her Dad were enjoying Paradise Cove, she noticed a man that looked like her boyfriend on top of the cliff ready to jump. She even took a photo of his likeness to show Ty later because they were so similar. It turns out it was Ty and he proposed! They eloped under the same rocks and took the jump together this time.
Larry and Sally laughing in love. These two had us in stitches all day with their easy humor and happiness together. They chose to spend the weekend at a cabin with a private hot springs to promise each other forever. Eloping is such an easeful and beautiful experience to witness.
The way these two danced had the whole room smiling through tears. Shayna and Cameron displayed such a fun spark of love and deep friendship that made for an epic party to celebrate their union. Each moment of this day was so present and heartfelt.
Alyson is incredibly talented! Her films speak for themselves, but on our wedding day she was a delight to have around. When the festivities began, she managed to capture everything without us even noticing. I wish more life events would require her services because we’d have her at them all. We couldn’t recommend her more!
I honestly can’t say enough good things! She made my wedding day! Her calming, sweet presence was overwhelming and so comforting! She was my favorite vendor! So happy to have met her!
The word film doesn’t do Alyson's work justice. She beautifully documented not only our ceremony, reception, and everything in-between, but she also captured the love present in every moment.
Alyson was wonderful, professional, and punctual throughout the whole process. She has an amazing eye for unique and meaningful shots. Everyone warns you that your wedding day will be a blur. I’m so happy I get to relive these moments over and over through Alyson‘s incredible work.
