Justin + Whitney // Scenic Kauai Elopement on the North Shore

Guys, we did it!!! We finally shot a wedding in Kauai!!!!! Yes, it was 4 months ago but the excitement hasn't worn off. We're still in awe of this day and the beauty and love we were surrounded by. Whitney and Justin chose to do things our absolute favorite way: completely relaxed and casual with almost zero planning or stressing out. We literally met up with them the day before, showed them some of our favorite spots around the North Shore and they picked one. Easy peasy. Having only a few family members by their sides and Justin's dad officiating meant there was even less to coordinate. After their short and simple ceremony we meandered through the jungle, hiked to a secret beach, and stopped at Hanalei Pier for some epic golden hour photos. This elopement was pure Hawaii magic and our love for these two beautiful people knows no bounds since they chose our favorite place on Earth to say "I do"! 

Katey + Patrick // Snow Covered Engagement Shoot in the Mountains

Don't you just love it when things come together? I've been wanting to do a snowy couples shoot FOREVER but it hardly ever snows (like really big heavy snows) here in the midwest. Just so happened that my cousin got engaged right before our family ski trip this winter in Colorado so we decided that was obviously the perfect place to do their engagement session. With the timing of the trip there was only one evening that worked to do it and wouldn't you know, we got big huge perfect fluffy flakes falling pretty much through the whole thing! Thanks, Jesus. :) 

We were also able to meet up with some of our favorite photographers and vendors from our Wedding Pioneer Colorado Business while on this trip.  Skiing & snowboarding + my cousin's engagement shoot + meeting some new photographer friends = :) :) :) :) :)
