Wedding Photojournalists Vail
for Scott and Hilary
To visit a wedding in Vail, CO can only be a rewarding experience. As wedding photojournalists Vail offers a mecca of opportunities to highlight the beauty of a wedding day story. With its assortment of fine hotels, high quality golfing, and majestic mountains in its perimeter, it's easy to get caught up and swept away in all the beauty. This is probably why Dallas couple, Scott and Hilary chose it as the location of what would be one of most superlative emotional days of their life. As wedding photojournalists, Vail offers one of the best backdrops Colorado has to offer. This combined with the great personalities of the family is why we at Selah were so thankful to be a part of it.
Despite the unexpected rainstorm and some last-minute accommodating, the day was a success from the get go. Their location for first look was on a private access peninsula near the golf course. A little overcast clouds, the surrounding foliage, and the sincerity on Scott and Hilary's faces made this a photographical daydream. We soon did a series of photos of the couple near their honeymoon getaway car, Hilary's father's Bentley. We have yet to see a car with better reflective properties.
Due to rain (which is considered good luck by the superstitious), the location of the ceremony was moved indoors. This was a happy accident in that everyone fit and everyone could see, and everyone got to stand in their wedding as they made their vows and had a traditional Christian wedding service.
The reception, of course, was the birth of many highlights and memories, starting with a large group flashmob dedicated to the bride and groom, and completely unbeknownst to them. There were tears of joy and much laughter, especially once we saw what an amazing dancer Hilary's mother, Merrole, was. It's people like this that make us love being photojournalists that document real moments. These photos don't make everyone look joyful, they show the joyful and genuine interactions...the things I hope that people never forget.
Our Sixth Man Award (our favorite person to photograph besides bride and groom) was a challenge this time. It came down to the MOH, Kelly, who had a wide assortment of faces and poses in her quiver and single-handedly made the success of the photo booth, or to her husband (Hilary's brother), Jonny, who came with handstands and lightning bolt socks. When your family this fun, your wedding is bound to be a momentous event, and in the case of Scott and Hilary, it certainly was, and we were happy to be there.
A big thank you to Christine of Soiree Studio for planning the day in a way that allowed us to photograph so well for Scott and Hilary. Weddings at the Sonnenalp are some of our favorite. It's a highly recommended Vail wedding venue for us.
