The Mount Washington Hotel.

Surrounded by the rolling mountains, and the changing leaves. With grand verandas, cascading staircases, and a crisp New Hampshire sky; Kevin and Caroline joined their lives and love.

PEYTON & HELEN | Sunrise Amphitheater & Chautauqa Wedding

The mood was peaceful while the hustle and bustle of a wedding day was well underway. The girls all gathered to begin their morning of beauty while the guys, like most do, relaxed waiting for the celebration to begin.

The first tear began with a hand written card from him. She quietly sat in her gown and slowly opened the envelope. As her eyes began to water and you couldn’t help but wonder what the words written to her said. And you secretly hope that she will always fell the way those hand written words made her feel in that very moment. She waved her hand at her face hoping to keep the tears from rolling down her cheeks. And in the attempt to not undo the beauty of her make up, she realized it was time. She gathered her thoughts and bouquet and began the walk to see him. One foot in front of the other. Not rushed, almost like she was gliding. His back faced her. He had only moments until those flutters went away and he was able to see the woman he chose to become his wife. Soon they would be Husband and Wife, a thought and a phrase that would take time to settle in but they couldn’t be more ready. But… for this one day though she was his bride and to her, he was her groom.

As he turned around his nervous stare became a full heartfelt smile. That first moment, that first look… that is the moment that you will always remember. The way she looked when you first saw her and the way he smiled at you. That is the moment. Frozen in time.

TOM & DEBBIE | Engaged


The crisp air, the falling leaves, the changing of life. This is my favorite time of year above all other seasons. So to say I loved being able to head to Steamboat Springs this past week to hang out with Tom and Debbie during the peak of the colors changing is understatement. With so many of my couples living out of state, I have found it is becoming more and more difficult for clients to have the time in their schedules to have a lifestyle session. Which I certainly understand, however how can you not want to have images like these in your home??!

Tom and Debbie, thank you for making time to document such an awesome time in your lives. I hope you enjoy your sneak peek of your images. There are so many for you guys! I loved hanging out with you two again!!
