Marcy and John, the bride and groom, asked me to come up to the Beaver Creek area– more specifically Cordillera– to photograph their wedding. I was thrilled to! It was at the family’s “Woodhouse” vacation home atop the beautiful mountains with a stunning view of the Gore Range all surrounded by wildflowers, waterfalls, a pond, and plenty of other picture perfect elements. I hadn’t done their engagement photos or even met the lovely couple before– as they live in Texas– but they very much enjoyed my photography from what they saw online and wanted me to be there to capture their special day here in Colorado. Everyone there was such a pleasure to be with and it seemed like they really enjoyed me being there as well– I got lots of great hugs from so much of the family before it was my time to head back home to Denver. I love being able to create these beautiful images for people to cherish for their rest of their lives, while making great connections with everyone while I do it! Oh… and I have to mention their angelic little flower girl. She was just so sweet and full of life, wandering off in her own little world amongst the wildflowers like a wood nymph. And she didn’t mind one bit as I followed along with my camera to photograph her as she explored. Please enjoy these wedding photos and some of my other images at http://www.BrianKraft.com
I photographed Kelly and Travis’ wedding and what a beautiful wedding it was. I just love being a Colorado wedding photographer because of all the scenic opportunities it brings. This wedding had some of that, but it started out in a most beautiful chapel. It was at the Shove Chapel in Colorado Springs. From a photography standpoint it was a challenge since the chapel is incredibly dark. But that is when having the top-of-the-line equipment comes in very handy. Any photographer with out the best cameras and lenses would not have been able to capture those beautiful moments in such a dark place. I have had guests of other weddings, with other photographers, in this very chapel say the wedding photos did not turn out at all. That is such a shame!! Many brides and grooms probably don’t quite understand the challenges photographers face with low lighting, so they should really be sure their wedding photographer has top-of-the-line cameras and lenses. I’m happy I do and am able to capture amazing photographs from the day! In fact, all of the outdoor photos shown here were taken at the country club after the sun had set. Without needing to use artificial lighting, I was able to exposure the photos with plenty of light– thanks to my high-end gear and knowing just how to use it.

Adorable little Noah came by to be the star for his 1 year birthday. We did some shots in the studio as well as outside. He had a lot of fun and so did I. His mom was striving to become a better photographer herself, so I told her about the lessons I offer. She became one of my students and she’s on the path to becoming quite good.
Cute little Kylie came in with her parents to be photographed. She loved to pretend she could hear a little mouse outside the studio. That kept her engaged for sometime while we got a lot of beautiful portraits of her. One outfit she wore was her little Christmas outfit so we could create cards to send out to friends and family.
A very playful couple having fun in Fall time by the lake. A bit of a contrast to the destination wedding I’ll be joining them for in Mexico in the Spring.
