Mesa Lakes Wedding | Alisha + Dan

Planning a destination wedding can be such a fun experience if you have the right friends and professionals in your corner. Alisha and Dan were wed on August 18th at the beautifully rustic Mesa Lakes Lodge and they planned it all from their home in Oregon! Luckily, they had plenty of help from local friends and family to see to it that everything was prepared exactly to their liking.

It was such a pleasure getting to know the adorable couple and their loved ones. Alisha’s smile and laughter is infectious and she brought so much excitement to the party!

A few of the Vendors for the day included:

Venue, Lodging, Catering: Mesa Lakes Lodge | Floral Design: Country Elegance | Cake & Deserts: Sweet Kiwi | Bridal Gown: Rosewood Bridal (Sophia Tolli) | Photography: Carrie Johnson Photography & Assistant Kayleigh Rust

Congratulations, Alisha & Dan!

Allie and Henny Penny | A Day in the Life

My sweet little Niece, Allie, loves her chickens! She’s got her very own “Hen House” and flock of ladies to collect eggs from daily. We went to visit Allie and her family for my Brother and Dad’s birthday party this past weekend. I have been wanting to photograph little Al with her chickens so I took a dress and my camera gear along. After dinner I asked Al if I could take her picture and she told me “NO” in true Allie fashion. It took little bit of convincing and bribery before she finally said yes, haha!

The mini photoshoot didn’t last long but we had a lot of fun. Even more fun chasing the chicken back to the coop!

Love you, Al Pal!

Maroon Bells Elopement | Kaitlin + Luke

What better place on earth for an elopement than Maroon Bells!  Kaitlin and Luke planned their destination wedding from their home in North Carolina and they did an incredible job!  Despite the smoke in the air from local Colorado fires, the Bells was breathtaking as usual.  Following their midday ceremony we ventured to the streets of downtown Aspen where we found even more beautiful backdrops and amazing people who cheered them on as we walked around town.  The day was perfect in every aspect!  If you or anyone you know is thinking of eloping then I highly suggest planning your day at the Majestic Maroon Bells! 

Congrats, Kaitlin & Luke! 

A few of the vendors that helped the lovely couple plan their dream wedding included:

Hair & Makeup:  Salon Tullio | Lodging:  Hotel Aspen | Venue: Maroon Bells | Dinner Reception: Jimmy's | Videography:  Be The Xperience | Photography:  Carrie Johnson Photography

Roaring Fork Family Photographer | Williams Clan

The transition from summer to fall is this Roaring Fork Family Photographer's FAVORITE time of the year!  Temps are cooling, we finally got a bit of rain, and the kiddos are back in school.  Now is the time to think about getting those family photos updated!  Whether you are one of those who gets them taken annually or maybe you haven't had them done since your kiddos were babies (I'm not judging!).  NOW IS THE PERFECT TIME because tomorrow those babies are another day older and yesterday is much too late.  Document this time in your lives while you can :) 

Schedule your FUN family session TODAY! 

Candy Apple Carnival!

Summer is for FUN!  And there's no better end to summer than a visit to your local county Fair!  Fairs make the perfect backdrop for a high school senior photo session.  The lights, the people, the cotton candy, the rides, the smell of horse poo in the air...I love it all!   

Next summer when the fair rolls into town, hit me up!
