This lovely lady and her rescued pup met in Telluride Town Park for a rainy day portrait. The sky cleared and we had beautiful soft light to work with and made some beautiful, timeless images.
There's some chilly trout swimming through the San Juan River this day!
To say I strive for authentic, real, unique weddings is maybe an understatement. To say these two took the cake in that arena wouldn't even come close.
Theirs is MY first, official wedding in Telluride and I pray theirs sets the tone, pace, mood and feel of every other wedding I ever photograph there.
An abundance of love and support from their families, friends, counsel of friends- I'm talking about you, it was felt throughout the entire day. I felt it. Everyone felt it.
I believe I captured it in these images.
ONE of TWO posts and...
hopefully many years of friendship between myself and all of you.

We weren't expecting this.
A sunrise shoot in Telluride Colorado should be a fierce hot sun cutting over the mountains, but not this morning.
Almost a disappointment, until we remember this place is ALWAYS beautiful and it is ALWAYS a gift to be here in Telluride.
And what spectacular light we had, pink and gray, soft and filling.
We had a beautiful morning together.
Thank you Geneva + Laura.
I can't wait for your wedding NEXT WEEK!!!
