We were going to be out in the Washington/Oregon area for a elopement. Having already seen how beautiful Washington is, I knew I had to shoot as much as I could while I was out there. I put out a call for a couple that would want to be photographed, and a local photographer reached out that him and his wife were interested. After weeks of locations falling through, we found the perfect spot, Franklin Falls. This session has to be on of my favorites to date, and I am so grateful for Kyle & Haley having such incredible connection and for braving the cold, and for Carlee with the Rusted Vase for creating such a stunning bouquet & flower crown.washington-2016-11-14_00022016-11-14_00042016-11-14_00052016-11-14_0006washington-wedding-photographer2016-11-14_00082016-11-14_0009franklin-falls-elopementsnoqualmie-pass-elopementwashington-fall-elopement2016-11-14_00142016-11-14_00162016-11-14_00182016-11-14_00192016-11-14_00202016-11-14_00212016-11-14_00222016-11-14_0023Washington Wedding Photographer

… you are the finest, loveliest, tenderest, and most beautiful person I have ever known- and even that is a understatement. -f. scott fitzgerald

This wedding held a lot of emotions for me personally. I’ve known Tyler since we were 12 years old. Being able to photograph this important day in his life was such an honor.

From as far back as I can remember Tyler has always said he would marry Zosia. Their love has grown over 12 years together. The culmination of all this time came together in one perfect day.

When Tyler proposed to Zosia her gave her his grandmothers ring. During their engagement Zosia kept a journal for him. It was something that she gave to him on their wedding day.  She sat on the couch with Tyler’s mom and remembered each entry.  When Tyler received the journal it was impossible for him to keep his eyes dry.
I fell in love with Zosia’s dress from the second I saw it but that didn’t stop me from becoming completely overwhelmed with emotion when she walked to to meet Tyler at the front of the aisle. The smile on Tyler’s face told me he was thinking the exact same thing I was. The ceremony had an added level of perfection because the bride and groom chose to do it ‘unplugged.’ In a world where we rely on technology, it was sweet to see everyone simply enjoying the memory.

I couldn’t be happier that my friend has found the perfect partner in life for him. The love that was felt that day will always be a fond memory for me. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of this journey with both of you!

I’ve had the opportunity to get to know Brynn from First Look Events over the last year. She is incredibly talented, and truly cares about making her couple’s day the absolute best it can be. Now its your turn to hear from one of Denver’s best wedding planners.


Tell me about First Look Events?

Our passion lies in creating innovative, beautiful designs that are perfectly curated to tell our clients story. We find inspiration in the most unlikely places and create extraordinary experiences for the host and guests alike.

What made you fall in love with weddings?

I  love any excuse to bring people together over great food and tasty libations, but weddings hold a special place in my heart. The challenge of encapsulating a couples love for each other in a unique way is the best part of my job. The moment I see the couple see each other for the first time, the moment I send them down the aisle to start their forever, and the first time they hold each other with their favorite music playing in the background, I fall in love with my job again and again.

What is your favorite part of your job?

The design and creative aspect of my job is my absolute favorite part of my job. I strive to think outside of the traditional color box and create unique and captivating designs for each one of my clients.2016-09-07_0001

What is one of your favorite stories from a wedding of yours?

There are far too many to pick just one, my job is filled with laughter and crazy moments everyday. I will come out with a wedding planner tells all book eventually and let you in on all my favorite stories.

What trends are you loving, and which would you love to see go?

I am loving the farm-to-table food trend. It is so much fun to celebrate the amazing food and chefs that we are lucky to have in our backyard. While I love a good hashtag, I would like to see this trend fade out so that we encourage guests to be present in the moment and not documenting every moment for social media. After all we hire amazing photographers for a reason:-D
Advice for Brides/Grooms to be?

Enjoy the planning process, don’t do things just because you feel like you should. Make sure your day is filled with people, sounds,tastes and experiences that bring you pure happiness.

How do you encourage your couples to personalize their wedding and step out of the pinterest box?

I love thinking outside of the box and encouraging my couples to come up with unique ideas that represent them. I ask clients to think about their favorite hobbies, date nights, and vacations etc. These are all great topics to inspire unique designs.2016-09-07_0005

Your favorite moment on a wedding day?

This is such a hard question. It is actually the question that inspired my companies name. My husband asked me this exact question and I couldn’t pick just one moment that I loved. My response was: I love the couples First Look, I love the family seeing the couple for the first time,  I love the couples First Look at the event space, I love the couples First Look at of the details.  I guess in a nut shell, I love seeing my couples enjoy every moment and detail of their special day.

What do you think is the most important thing about the service you offer your couples?

I think my niche lies in really getting to know my clients and expressing their love story through a unique design. Couple should now that I will get to know them as if they are a guest in my home and I will go to the ends of the earth to make their day perfectly unique to them.2016-09-07_0004

What is your favorite thing to do outside of the wedding industry?

When I am not working you will find me enjoying the beautiful landscape of Colorado on long hikes with my family.  I am also a huge foodie and love trying out all the new local hotspots!

“He saw her before he saw anything else in the room”
- F. Scott Fitzgerald

Destination weddings seem to increase the level of romance ten fold. Exotic locations, with only your closest friends and families really change the day. This couldn’t be more true for Hayley and Fitz. The clear blue water and white sandy beaches of Mexico are breathtaking. The fluffy clouds polka dot the sky intermittently as the warmth from the sun falls around you.

A bright and vibrant country like Mexico deserves an equally bright and vibrant couple. Fitz and Hayley lived up to those standards incredibly. For the ceremony Hayley was set to wear a stunning pale pink Vera Wang dress. It complimented her beauty perfectly. Guests watch as the two exchanged personally written vows at the edge of the water.

As everyone switched gears into celebration mode for the reception Hayley changed into a champagne colored dress! The fun began instantly. Laughter roared and smiles were everywhere. The love between Hayley and Fitz combined with their fun loving spirits really set the evening off.

We could not be more grateful for the opportunity to spend such a incredible week with the two of you and your families.2016-09-02_00012016-09-02_00022016-09-02_00032016-09-02_00042016-09-02_00052016-09-02_00062016-09-02_00072016-09-02_00082016-09-02_00092016-09-02_00102016-09-02_00112016-09-02_00122016-09-02_00132016-09-02_00142016-09-02_00152016-09-02_00162016-09-02_00172016-09-02_00182016-09-02_00192016-09-02_00202016-09-02_00212016-09-02_00222016-09-02_00232016-09-02_00242016-09-02_00252016-09-02_00262016-09-02_00272016-09-02_00282016-09-02_00292016-09-02_00302016-09-02_00312016-09-02_00322016-09-02_00332016-09-02_00342016-09-02_0035Playa Mujeres Wedding
