Spring in Colorado is always a wildcard! It may rain, snow, and reach 75 degrees all in the same week!
Thankfully, Zyanya and Evan brought their love to keep them warm during this Rocky Mountain National Park snowy engagement shoot.
It may be snowing, but this gorgeous spring wedding is too beautiful to keep from sharing! Enjoy the photos and scroll to the bottom to see the talented Colorado wedding vendors that made this day a dream!
A little while ago, I asked my Instagram followers what you wanted to read about in this blog. In addition to “amazing Colorado weddings” and “beautiful couples in the mountains,” I received some requests that surprised me: “How do you do it all!?” “Help this girl with all the wedding stress” and “Balance: working, life, wedding planning, and pandemic.” While I’m no life coach, I can share a handful of things that have helped me manage overwhelming feelings. Here are 5 ways that I make that anxiety ball in my chest melt into the feeling of accomplishment.
Hillary Shedd Photography Colorado Wedding & Engagement Photographer Engagement photos aren’t for everyone. They may seem unnecessary or a waste of time, but I am a huge fan on engagement photos and believe every couple will benefit from taking them. Here are my top 3 reasons why I recommend every couple take engagement photos: 1. They […]
Jane & Jeff are the dream Colorado couple. They met while being skiing and snowboarding instructors in Winter Park. During their first interaction, Jeff worked up the courage to talk to Jane by their staff lockers. Jane, however, brushed right by him without saying anything! Was he so nervous that he only said hello in his head? Maybe, because that night Jane and her friends visited the brewery Jeff worked at in the evenings in hopes to see him. After their first conversation, they were hooked!
And in honor of my wedding anniversary, I’m happy to share a handful of my favorite wedding photos with you.
I am one of those people who genuinely loves weddings! I love that everyone gets dressed up. I love the speeches and reflecting on how the couple getting married came to be. Most of all, I love the symbolism behind wedding ceremonies.
If you’ve talked with me about having a second shooter at your wedding, you know I’m a stickler for manual mode and intentional shots. I’m proud to announce that my husband is ready! Please meet Taylor Shedd.
“One conversation and I was hooked on who he was!”
Marcus has that effect. His words are intentional and heartwarming, while his smile is infectious. Candace is the same way, and spending an afternoon with them in Colorado Springs felt like going on a hike with old friends. Marcus has three children from a previous marriage, and Candace has wholeheartedly welcomed them into her heart. I loved hearing about their blended family and seeing their honest smiles throughout their engagement shoot.
Being friends first definitely has its perks. They are each other’s best friends! Throughout their engagement session, they were full of smiles and giddy laughter. Every once in a while I’d give a posing prompt like “remember the first time you told your partner you loved them.” and I’d see a little eye-watering or a hidden tear. Their love is so pure it made me tear up just watching them!
