Seeing [Pops of] Red

Party Crush Studio

From  Party Crush Studio:

Our color scheme for this shoot was inspired by a gorgeous cake with hand-drawn flowers in sage, dusty blue, red, and cream. The color palette was used throughout the shoot in almost all the details including the florals, tablescape, linens, cake, and the lounge furniture.

The Calm After the Wedding

Johanna + Gustavo ventured up through the Sequoias with me the day after their wedding. They grew up in a nearby town called Porterville and literally got to enjoy the Sequoias as their backyard. I grew up coming to the Sequoias almost every summer and lately my little family has gone up about 2 times a year. You could say we are all a little obsessed with this shoot. It was a dream of mine to shoot up here and it made it even more special that this place meant something to them as well.

Golden Hour in Denver

summertime wedding

Design by Sugar Willow Events

We pulled together a team of local vendors to show off their best work. Our inspiration was moody golds with incredible textures. This sweet couple had never done a bridal shoot together and it was so cute and authentic to watch them interact. We gave our model, Ashley, the final choice on the dress so she would feel comfortable and confident. This Willowby two-piece was perfect! Each member of the vendor team brought something incredible and unique to the style and design of the shoot and helped to transform the venue from downtown Denver to secret New York rooftop.
