2021 BEST OF THE BEST - WEDDINGS - Colorado Wedding Photographer

Typically for my year in review, I go through and share my favorite images from each wedding. This year I wanted to do something a bit different. Typically since I am sharing my favorite photos, it turns out to be a lot of portraits and a lot of missing 'other' photos. Instead this year I wanted to share my favorites in certain categories and some of the trends I loved. Please don't have your feelings hurt on anything. Remember I've done a LOT of weddings in 12+ years, I have seen a lot of trends come and go and the things that age particularly well. I love seeing unique ideas and sharing them with others. So, with that being said, I hope you enjoy my 'Best of the Best 2021 - Weddings Edition'.


Make sure you keep an eye out for the Best of the Best Portraits - with our favorite wedding, engagement and other portraits that will follow soon!
