natural denver wedding photos
Every bride at one point or another was a young girl fantasizing in her room about what her wedding would one day look like. This fantasy usually involves a handsome bride, a cool hotel to get changed in, some super cool custom-painted socks as gifts, a broken-down light rail, and a Spring day that starts with moderate cloud covering and ends with the newlyweds dancing together in a thick snowfall and a nearby poweroutage. Okay, so maybe the details aren't always exactly that, but with the way Mark and Holly owned it and the way their families laughed, danced, and ate ice cream together in a snowstorm, you would have thought they had ordered that snow from a Hollywood special effects company.
As their photographers, of course we were happy that they were so happy because though we may not say it out loud in the moment, cloud covers and precipitation of any kind can make for awesome photographs as long as the couple is willing. They were willing. Is it a coincidence that the man who discovered that every snowflake is unique was a photographer?
Shooting Mark and Holly's wedding was a lot of fun for us and there were lessons learned by many: Hiring a good DJ and having people willing to dance is a recipe for an amazing reception. Just because the father of the groom isn't the best man doesn't mean he can't give a heartwarming yet hilarious toast. Ice cream is still worth eating even if you have stand in line outside in snowy wind while wearing a dress to get it. Make sure your rental car comes with a good scraper even in May. And, regardless of circumstance, what makes or breaks the joyous experience of a wedding is love itself. This lesson learned from Mark and Holly was the best of all.It's love like this that provide meaningful, emotional and natural Denver wedding photos. We were so thankful to take part in their story.
