Colorado wildlife, lush forests, and amazing vendors and models–photographing this styled shoot was a dream! Up in the mountains in Bailey, Colorado, we visited Deer Mountain Camp, a wedding venue that was once a summer camp. This styled shoot was in the works since February, and I’m so excited to share it! #worththewait
Michele, from Urban Events Colorado, and I met in January at the Denver Bridal and Wedding Expo. We hit it off, and both actively care about elevating all women in the wedding industry! 2020, however, had other plans. COVID-19 delayed the shoot for safety reasons, while Michele was able to find an outdoor venue. With multiple talented vendors, two deserving couples, and an outdoor venue location, this styled shoot is COVID-19 friendly while providing lots of ideas for wedding inspiration. I hope you enjoy it!
Let’s meet the models!
Quinn and Joe are the first beautiful couple in this shoot. Quinn came down with the coronavirus in early 2020, while the rest of the world was still learning what it was. Although she is young, fit, and healthy, her journey to recovery included multiple trips to the hospital, and long term effects of the virus are still challenging her. The 2020 wedding season has been less than ideal, but Quinn’s story is an excellent reminder of why we are all postponing weddings. The safety of our loved ones is the most important thing right now! I’m so glad Quinn and Joe were able to celebrate one year of marriage by modeling in this styled shoot.
The second beautiful couple is Felicia and Leo. They have been married for seven years, but never had the chance to have a real wedding. This shoot gave them the unforgettable opportunity to pick out a wedding dress, experience their “first look” and capture the wedding photos that they never had! These two lovebirds first met when Leo tattooed the cross onto Felicia’s neck, which you can see in a few of the photos. There was an immediate trust and attraction, and the two have been together ever since!
