Shalaya and Stephen at Sunrise Amphitheater
When Shalaya and Stephen contacted me about their wedding at the Sunrise Amphitheater in Boulder, I was pretty excited. I had photographed a wedding on Flagstaff Mountain before, but this time the wedding and reception would be up there. As a Boulder wedding photojournalist who likes to work with natural light, I was glad we would never have to leave the magical remove of the mountaintop. It was also a bit of a heads-up as to what kind of couple they were. Everything outdoors, on picnic tables, with a down-to-earth vibe it would be hard to replicate elsewhere. And the dress code was Mountain Casual. What in the world is that?
