Jamie and Michael were married at The Manor House in Morrison, Colorado. It’s a beautiful setting, though I never want the environment to upstage the people gathered, the people who will be so much more important years into the future than chosen colors or intricate place settings. As a Denver wedding photojournalist, I prefer to work in black and white, always putting the focus on the individual and the ways in which we connect.
The Manor House is in an interesting location. It’s tucked behind the first set of foothills so you’re surrounded by mountains, but in the area where they hold most outdoor weddings there’s a little break in the hills perfectly aligned with downtown Denver.
There can’t possibly be that many places to sign a marriage license.
My favorite time, when they get a brief respite. It’s great to have your family and close friends to share things, but sometimes it’s easy to get so caught up in entertaining and hitting all your marks at the designated times that you don’t get to really experience the day with the one person who matters most. Take a moment. Run away.
No one actually admits that they’re going to do this beforehand. Take those denials with a grain of salt.
