From the first e-mail Alex sent me, I knew we were going to be a good fit. Her words melted and humbled me so much that I’ll have to throw in a quote for good measure: “Something that is very important to us is having a photographer who isn’t afraid to take risky photos and break the barrier of traditional wedding photography.” Crested Butte also happens to hold a special place in my heart since it was the first mountain town I visited in Colorado and I quickly fell in love with the small town. I walked into Alex’s prep room greeted by the nicest group of girls all eager to pour me my own mimosa. Alex & Mark had a first look before their ceremony overlooking the mountains. It’s hard to beat those mountain summer sunsets, so we wandered the property taking photos with their pup, Zema. I ended the night hanging out with them and few of their crew next to the best of fire pits.

Crested Butte, Colorado

How it took me 26.5 years before I made it to Colorado, I don’t know, but I’m glad I have it in my life now. The fact that I have now been there three times in the last six months is a true testament to how much I really love it. I will likely have to plan another trip in fall just so I can get all four seasons in. I have spent time in Breckenridge, Denver, & Crested Butte; I look forward to planning more trips to different parts of the state as well. This past summer trip came about initially thanks to a good friend inviting me to her grandfather’s ranch house that was built and unchanged since 1974. For many reasons (including the lack of cellphone service), we affectionately refer to it as the time warp ranch. Of 10 people staying at the summer home 5 of us were photographers. I cannot help but be so inspired by the talent I constantly find myself surrounded by. My friends are amazing and watching them work inspires me and pushes me to become a better photographer.

After 4 nights in the summer ranch, I spent a few extra days camping out in Crested Butte and enjoying the fun summer events they have going on like Bridges of the Butte & Alpenglow. Crested Butte is the perfect summer destination but many other Texans seem to feel the same way since there seems to be more Texans than Coloradans here.
