Vail wedding Photographers | Colorado Photojournalists | for Dave and Taylor There is never a bad reason to visit Vail, Colorado, but "for the wedding of Dave and Taylor" is now one of our favorites. Dave and Taylor, some Colorado transplants, brought in two families from the Midwest and convinced them to put their football rivalries aside in order to make one family, loving the mountains and dancing their hearts out in some of Vail's finest locations. Like anybody who chooses to move to Colorado, Dave and Taylor have good taste in hobbies, gastronomy, decorations, kimono robes, and people, and all of these things were well-represented on their wedding day (except for the hobbies).
We started with the preparation photos in their hotel rooms (and their kimono robes) where we got to hang out the with friends in all of their comfort of being around each other. Dave and Taylor took us in like some of their close friends and this definitely helped get some real, genuine, and wonderful emotion out of the group when we were together shooting the couple as well as the bridal party. There are a lot of really nice photo locations in Vail, but we couldn't help but train our cameras the whole time on Taylor's beautiful smile, or on Dave's struggling to hold back his tears of joy. Of all the couples we have met, these two gave us some of the most real emotion we have seen. Whether it was reading letters, first look, vows, or reception toasts, there were always some tears of joy in their eyes.
Dave and Taylor are two of the clients that you go home thinking, "it would be so fun fun to be friends with those guys". Their wedding was truly a great time, even for the vendors.
And, it was truly great to work with Amber, from Save the Date Events who did an amazing job and brought along her spirited husband, Alex - What a great team.
PS: It should also be mentioned that Taylor's sister, Mackenzie, had some really great facial expressions as well and we wished we had a trophy to give her because of them.
PPS: How could we forget to mention Taylor's dress? This masterpiece was made custom by an incredible boutique dress designer. I was pretty excited to meet the designer who was a guest at the wedding. I sought out the person who had the coolest outfit and knew it would be her. The dress was actually designed after a dress in her current collected named after Taylor. It was our favorite dress to date.
