A long time ago, when I was first starting out as a wedding photographer, I shot a lot of elopements. Colorado's such a beautiful place; it seems like a magnet for those who want to run away and get married in a gorgeous setting. I can't tell you how many weddings I shot where I was the photographer and the witness! But that was then and this is now. I rarely get the privilege of being the sole witness to a wedding any more, so when the odd elopement comes my way I am always tickled pink. Such was the case with Bryan and Aleshia, who live in Arkansas and have been together for eight years. They found me via Reverend Kirk Fowler, who's a great guy -- I love working with him. The only other person present at the ceremony was Reverend Fowler's wife. In cases like this I think the photographs are especially important, since no one in their families was there in person. The photos really have to tell the story.
I had such a nice time with Aleshia and Bryan. It was a privilege being part of their big day, and thanks guys for choosing me to record it!
What a beautiful spot to get married!
