I have photographed and filmed weddings all over the mountains of Colorado, from Grand Lake to Breckenridge way down to Telluride and everywhere in between. When you book with me you not only get my photography expertise but my extensive area knowledge as well. My time in the mountains means I know where to go (and when to go) to get that epic photograph you want. I have been exploring the back roads of Colorado all my life and every time I find something cool I mark it on my map. I know, a paper map, but where I go, there is no internet and gps units are not reliable.
If you are looking for a location with an old cabin and a lake, I know just the spot. If you are looking for rocky cliff with beautiful views, I know just the spot. If you are looking to a view of Crested Butte Mountain because you might be moving away in a year and you want to remember your adventures there, I know just the spot to go.
It can be hard to get a picture of Mt Crested Butte Ski area without a ton of houses in it, but for this adventure portrait photography session we wanted 360 degree views, so we hiked up by the new Crested Butte Mountain Resort’s Umbrella Bar at Ten Peaks (just opened in the summer of 2015) by the mountain wedding site to get this great angle. In the summer you can make a short hike from a parking area on the side of the mountain. In the winter, simply take the Painter Boy Lift (once stood a small cabin) and look for the retractable roof. Depending on the weather, the umbrella over the bar will either be up or retracted. They are open daily and serve European-style sandwiches, brats, wraps, and other snacks like hot paninis, fondue and cheese platters, as well as a full bar. It’s a great place to hang out on the mountain any time of the year summer, fall, winter or spring!
