A Wedding at Telluride, CO: Jaclyn & Eddie

Ah, Colorado…

It’s so easy to photograph beautiful people in beautiful places…

…except when it isn’t so easy. I know: write that down. But it’s true.

You see, while this wedding was taking place in one of the world’s most picturesque ski towns, Telluride, Colorado had decided to be very unpredictable. While the sun was shining, and the trees were beginning to bud and green, what the photos don’t show is the fact that it was basically still winter there… in late May.

Jaclyn was a trooper. Her original ceremony venue? Still under a couple feet of snow. Her new venue? Surrounded by snow. And on the mountain, it was windy. Really, really windy.

Oh, and did I mention that this was when New Mexico and Arizona were basically on fire in 2012? So the incredible views were hazed over by smoke.

But Char and I have seen it all, and we knew there is always a silver lining.

So we were simply patient with the wind and waited for breaks between gusts to shoot, and the haze? What a blessing! The filtered sunlight from the smoke in the air is stunning in the photographs we captured.

The cold..? Well, we can only do so much: it was still chilly at points. But that’s when kick-ass attitudes are priceless, and Jaclyn and Eddie had great attitudes.

We’ve had Jaclyn as a portrait client for years and years, and Char and I were so honored when she choose us to capture her stunning wedding to Eddie.
