Cielo at Castle Pines – Wedding Photography

Cielo at Castle Pines – Wedding Photography. Oh, what a blast we had! Sometimes as a wedding photographer, I feel like I shouldn’t be having this much fun. I’m there to do a job — damn it — and certainly fun can’t be a part of that! …unless of course when the two people, whose loving bond you are there to celebrate, are exuding so much life and love, the fun just consumes you. You no longer have a choice, I guess. You just hang on for the ride and let it take you along! Well, Cielo at Castle Pines was the perfect place for it to all go down. We were blessed with one of our perfectly sunny Colorado days. And the couple, Faymie and Keith, brought together so many incredible people to celebrate with them. Their family and friends were there to shower love upon them… and maybe a little beer too! It was all a beautiful thing. But don’t just take my word for it…

Colorado Wedding Photographer

Colorado Wedding Photographer. As you look at these wedding photos from Rae and Cody’s wedding, I don’t need to tell you that they are the fuel to a seriously fun-loving good time. I don’t need to tell you, because it’s clear from the photos that they have a certain kind of energy–an infectious energy that grabs a hold of you and you can’t help but smile. I knew this from the moment I met up with them for the first time for their engagement photos. And it was extra refreshing that even during those typically jittery moments on a wedding day, they were just having a blast! Good on them! Please enjoy, as you follow me and an invaluable wing-man–the amazing Matt Speck, as we meet up with the crew in Breckenridge, Colorado at the Thunder Mountain Lodge to get ready, before heading over to the stunning Arapahoe Basin and the Black Mountain Lodge–a place that makes me extra happy I’m a Colorado wedding photographer. The dramatic landscape makes for the ideal mountain wedding. And the staff at Arapahoe Basin are always such a pleasure to be partnered with. Please enjoy this fun, beautiful, elegant, and downright dirty-on-the-dancefloor wedding. I know I certainly did. Huge congrats and thanks to the super-sweet Rae and Cody! “Oh, yeaaaaahhhh!!!”

Colorado Backyard Wedding

Colorado Backyard Wedding. When you think of a DIY backyard wedding in Colorado, you tend to think of a nice spot under a tree out back, with a few close family and friends and modest decorations of flowers and cute signs. Although, DIY has been taking an even more elaborate approach and the more artistic couples bring things to an even grander scale. Well, when the backyard happens to be a large field that sits beside the mountain home, with the most perfect view of the Colorado mountains, and when the bride runs her own event planning business, things tends to go to an even more amazing level. Bride and groom, Kristen and Jonathan, created a classy, elegant, and artful DIY wedding, that stayed intimate and really special for everyone that was there–including a couple of photographers–me and Brooke Trexler (thanks, Brooke!). The location, up in the Indian Hills area of Colorado, was the perfect backdrop for a tent to be set up and for beautiful and romantic and fun moments to unfold. And from a photojournalistic wedding photographer–unfold they did! Enjoy the good times in these photos and feel the love for Kristen and Jonathan and their Colorado backyard wedding!

Black Mountain Lodge – Arapahoe Basin

Black Mountain Lodge – Arapahoe Basin. Being a mountain wedding photographer in Colorado, you’d think it was the magic of the scenery that would make the most lasting impression on me. Sure, the beautiful mountains at ABasin and the surrounding Summit County are simply gorgeous and hold a special place in my heart. But, it’s when you encounter really sweet and special people, like bride and groom–Kelly and Andy–that is what sticks with you. It’s their energy, kindness, and love for others and each other that frame each one of these photos. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed getting to know this wonderful couple and seeing the love that surrounds them. And I hope you enjoy this small glimpse into the amazing celebration I was honored to witness. And high fives to Michele Blake for her assistance during the day. Congratulations, Kelly and Andy!

Summit County Wedding Photographer – Sapphire Point

Summit County Wedding Photographer – Sapphire Point. Certain places are worth travelling to. Summit County certainly is one of those places–especially when it’s the site for your wedding. Chicago residents, Meredith and Jason, chose Sapphire Point in Summit County to have their wedding ceremony, with getting ready at the River Mountain Lodge and reception at Main Street Station in Breckenridge. It was a small intimate family-elopement style wedding. One where only the closest of family and friends made the special trip out to join the wonderful bride and groom. It was a beautiful day–even if the rain swept through for just a brief moment–it didn’t hamper the love and the fun of this elegant and classy wedding in Colorado. All the best to you, Meredith and Jason!

Colorado Mountain Wedding Photographer – Keystone Mountain

Colorado Mountain Wedding Photographer – Keystone Mountain: I’ve got so many thoughts and feelings about Shannon and Jake’s wedding, but my mind just keeps coming back to just how sweet these two are. I got the chance to hang out with the two of them at a brewery a few months before their wedding–just to get to know each other. It was just plain fun chatting with them about anything and everything in the world. It was just easy. Two totally down to Earth people who clearly love each other a whole lot. And so on their wedding day, it was more of the same– a total pleasure to be with them. Turns out, it’s not just them–but their whole crew of family and friends are super fun too! There were a couple hiccups here and there during the day, but it was all perfectly ok. Everyone took it all in stride and it was just a blast. Oh, and don’t even get me started on the details that Shannon brought together for her wedding. This small sample of photos doesn’t do it justice. It was DIY to the max, but nothing came across as less than 100% professional in the execution of ALL of the fine details. Just amazing! Well, I’ll let these photos do the rest of the talking. Enjoy a glimpse into the wonderful day at Timber Ridge in Keystone, Colorado. And here’s to the two of you, Shannon and Jake!

Los Angeles Wedding Photographer

Los Angeles Wedding Photographer. Words will never do justice for what went down one fine Fall day in California. This sampling of wedding photos begin to get close–but just kinda-sorta. I knew I was dealing with pure awesome when I started corresponding back and forth with Arija and Ryan by email. These two are SO DAMN FUNNY. Just to give the slightest, tiniest, tip-of-the-iceberg-ness glimpse into this wonderful couple and all their family and friends… Arija bought her sister (bridesmaid) a $12 80’s-era dress and dared her to wear it to the wedding. That’s good enough by itself, but her sister not only took her up on the dare, but wore it unabashedly and with incredible flair. That’s right–flair. It’s that kind of uniqueness that embodies how Arija and Ryan celebrated their love. They did it completely their own way and I am so thrilled they flew me out to California to take photos and be a part of it all. Thank you, guys! Now, let me get out of the way, so you can enjoy this tiny slice of their wedding photography. Enjoy!

Snowbird Wedding Photographer – Sneak Peek Portraits

A Snowbird wedding photographer and their couple typically wouldn’t expect to get snow for their photos in August, but some things are just meant to be. The beautiful thing is–we ended up getting the best of both worlds. The snow had fallen overnight, but the day warmed up nicely, so we got to do some photography–even at the top of the mountain–and the temperature was just perfect. Here is just a quick sneak peek at a handful of the couple’s portraits we did on that fine day in August. Be sure to check back later when the full blog post is up!

Colorado Mountain Wedding Photographer – Arapahoe Basin

Being a Colorado mountain wedding photographer is always an incredible adventure. Katie and Huck’s wedding proved that to be the case–a few times over. The big hiccup of the day was the weather that was not exactly cooperating. I will tell you though–Katie and Huck kept their cool, like you would never believe. It was all positive vibes the entire day and it was actually really inspiring to see. In the end, with just a little waiting and a few drinks at The Legend’s Cafe and a mess load of ponchos, everything turned out to be absolutely perfect. Summit County’s Arapahoe Basin and the Black Mountain Lodge were the perfect backdrops to this fun-filled party.  Enjoy this sampling of wedding photos from the day and a huge congrats to Katie and Huck!

Catamount Lake Wedding – Steamboat Springs Colorado

This Catamount Lake wedding in Steamboat Springs, Colorado was just picture perfect. I had photographed a wedding in Steamboat before, but I have not yet explored the area enough–because it’s clearly a really special part of Colorado. Wedding photographers’ paradise, really. The drive to and from Denver is just stunning, as the roads wind through some of the most unique and varied mountain terrain this country has to offer. So it was a real privilege when Joanna and Dan invited me to be their wedding photographer near this gorgeous Colorado mountain town of Steamboat. The Catamount Ranch and Club Lakehouse is quite simply beautiful–providing modern comfort with older rustic charm. The lake, the flowers, the willow trees–it was the perfect setting to celebrate the profound  love that is so clearly apparent between Joanna and Dan. In fact, it wasn’t just between the bride and groom–but the love amongst all the family and friends that were a part of their special day was quite obvious. It was wonderful to be a part of. So, before we get to their wedding photos, I want to  wish them many happy years together! Enjoy!

Colorado Mountain Wedding Photography – Cori and Chris

I just love a good Colorado mountain wedding–and no matter the size. It doesn’t matter if there’s 200 people or six, the love between the couple and the commitment being made is just as strong. This Summit County wedding was a good example of that. The couple, Cori and Chris, decided to bring along only their parents… well, and their wedding photographer… to be a part of their day–and to have their reception with a slightly larger group of loved ones a couple days later in Denver. It was a really comfortable group of folks to be around, although I must admit–part of me was feeling a little self-conscious. You see, Cori’s mom and dad had been wedding photographers for 20 years, and while they couldn’t have been nicer, there’s that looming feeling that those experienced eyes are watching my every move. When I come to my senses though, I know it’s just my own drive to want to do the best I can do for all my couples, regardless of who is there. Plus, I should probably feel honored (and I do!) that after being surrounded by wedding photography her whole life, that Cori wanted me to do her wedding photos!  So, please enjoy as we start off in Breckenridge at One Ski Hill to get all fancied up, before heading over to Lake Dillon and Sapphire Point. And many thanks to Dina and Stacy for helping with some of the wedding planning and for providing such amazing wedding flowers. And to many wonderful years together, Cori and Chris!

2013 Photography Favorites

Photography Favorites. As we celebrate a new year, it’s always fun to look back on the previous year of photography and all the great moments and people along the way. So that’s what this post is about. Now, there’s awful lot missing from this post too. I didn’t include any of the numerous wonderful family portrait sessions, or baby sessions, or commercial shoots I did. This has a little more of a narrow focus– mostly engagement photography and wedding photography, as well as just a couple “personal” photos thrown in for good measure. Even that had to be narrowed down–by a LOT! I started by throwing some favorites in the hat and then saw I had close to 1,500 photos that I absolutely loved. Way too many! So, finally… painfully… I cut that by more than 1/10th. So here we are– an incredibly thin slice of the awesomeness that was 2013! Thank you all who helped to make it such a great year. And just as much as I loved every moment here, I look forward to 2014 with just as much excitement! In no particular order…

If you enjoyed these photography favorites, please keep in touch on Facebook- Brian Kraft Photography and also please have a look at more of my Colorado wedding photography.


Copper Mountain Wedding Photographer

Copper Mountain Wedding Photographer. The last time we caught up with Kristin and Justin was during their Denver engagement session. They’ve been busy since then. Busy creating their own DIY wedding up in Summit County, Colorado. Copper Mountain to be exact. And when I say busy, I’m talking ‘spreadsheets.’ You may think Kristin is the one meticulously planning her special day with perfect rows and columns. She’s certainly been busy, but it’s Justin who’s been deep into making sure everything goes as planned. The reason I point this out, is because most grooms are busy saying things like “sure, ok dear, whatever you want…” Of course, all grooms dearly love their brides, but genetics can get the best of them. And so it’s very refreshing to see a guy so invested in making sure that, not only is his soon-to-be wife taken care of, but that all the guests have a really great and memorable time. And that’s just what Kristin and Justin created. Not just for one special day, but for four days–mostly guests from their homestate of Ohio–were comforted, offered a legitimate vacation in the Rocky Mountains, and certainly well-fed–thanks to their buddy, “Chef,” who they flew out from Ohio to divinely craft every meal for the two-large-mountain-homes full of their loved ones. The thing is, even though the wonderfully artistic couple (and their ring-bearer dog) were so involved in creating so much (like the flowers, bowties, decorating every last thing, even acting as skilled bartenders–which doubled as their receiving line), they remained the mellow, fun people that they are. To give you an idea–Plan A was to get married on a mountain top, but because there were intermittent bands of thunderstorms rolling through all day–mixed with beautiful sunshine, without any sign of disappointment, they went with Plan B and got married right inside one of the houses. And we ended up timing things perfectly and still got to go to Sapphire Point later that day to take some great wedding photos of the two of them. We also strapped on our lederhosen and ventured into Breckenridge to join the crowds enjoying Oktoberfest. So, what do you say we dive on into some of the photography from this fine celebration? Prost!

Denver Art Museum Wedding

Denver Art Museum Wedding. What a fun wedding this was. Brian and Adam live in Los Angeles, but planned their wedding for Denver at the C. Duncan Pavilion at the DAM (Denver Art Museum). Adam and Brian both work in the entertainment industry and wanted their wedding to feel a bit like one of the movie premier parties they attend in Hollywood.  That, in combination with the couple having such a sense of humor and having family and friends that really know how to have fun, it was a sure recipe for a great day to celebrate their love. There were so many great moments all day and night, but one of my favorites was over at the Hotel Monaco, where the two grooms got ready in a suite together. They got to spend time together beforehand, but when it came time to get dressed, they did so in separate rooms within the suite and revealed their wedding day outfits once dressed. It was a really special moment. So, now I’m going to get out of the way with less words and get on with the photos, but I just want to mention one more thing. It’s a shame that I even feel the need to mention it– as it should be a non-issue, but as you enjoy these wedding photos of this wonderful same sex couple, please note how “right” everything is between these two and everyone that surrounds them, yet in the State of Colorado it is still not “right” (by law) to consider their union a “marriage,” with the benefits that come with that. Fortunately, Adam and Brian live in California, where they are finally offered the rights they so deserve. Hopefully all states will follow suit as soon as possible. Ok, now on to the photos! Congratulations, guys!

Estes Park and Stanley Hotel Wedding

This Estes Park and Stanley Hotel Wedding was a magnificent time. You never can be too sure about late-Fall weather at high altitude in Colorado, but boy did Courtney and Scott get lucky. It was an absolutely gorgeous day and despite the recent damaging floods in the area, (almost) all went off without a hitch in that respect. The ceremony was at Our Lady of the Mountains Catholic Church in Estes Park. A stunning church, indeed. For the reception, we headed on over to the classic Stanley Hotel in the McGregor Room for some amazingly good times. Please enjoy these wedding photos and many thanks to my side-kick for the day, Megan Alvarez! And a huge congratulations to the wonderful couple, Courtney and Scott!

Hyatt Regency Wedding Photographer – DTC

Hyatt Regency Wedding Photographer – DTC. I initially got to know Mitra and Scott when they asked me to shoot some family photography for them. I was so excited for them when a short time later they told me they had gotten engaged and wanted me to be their wedding photographer. Their engagement story is so touching, which you can read about along with their engagement photos I took for them. Their wedding was just classically beautiful–located at the gorgeous Hyatt Regency in the Denver Tech Center. The ceremony was in their atrium, which is filled with beautiful natural light. And we partied down in a wonderful ballroom. It was a beautiful thing to see such deep connections between family members and so many loving moments. I even got to witness a couple of budding wedding photographers in action, as you’ll see in these photos. Please enjoy and many congrats to Mitra and Scott!

Parker Wedding Photographer – Villa Parker

Parker Wedding Photographer – Villa Parker: I have been the wedding photographer at another Villa Parker wedding before, but I always try to approach each wedding uniquely, even if it’s in the same space. Once it’s all said and done, it ends up being quite easy to document and present something quite different–because so much is fundamentally different from each wedding. Different players– in the bride and groom. Different relationships, different personalities, different energy in the air, so many unique moments. That’s one thing I love about wedding photography– the “script” is never the same! And that was certainly the case with my lovely bride and groom on this fine Summer day in Parker. Jenny and Ben show such love for each other. It’s beautiful to see!  So, please enjoy these fun Colorado wedding photos– taken at the tranquil Villa Parker wedding venue, not far down the road from Denver. And many thanks for having me there, Jenny and Ben! Congratulations to you both!

Summit County Wedding – Arapahoe Basin

Hailey and Robbie are two people who know how to have fun. And what fun they did have! So, I know that makes at least 3 of us. And I’m figuring probably many more, based on what I saw on that fine Summer day while taking photos. Hailey and Robbie came out to Colorado from Chicago to have their wedding in the high country of Summit County. Arapahoe Basin to be exact. What a stunning venue to have a wedding, with craggy mountain peaks surrounding us. Wild flowers were in full force. And love was certainly in the air. It was a pleasure and honor to be their wedding photographer. And a shout out to the other fine folks that made their day a great success– Kristina Rice for coming along to 2nd shoot with me; Meredith and Chris at Arapahoe Basin’s Black Mountain Lodge; DJ Bob for filling our ears with fun tunes; and the magnificent florists at Petal and Bean in Breckenridge. Congratulations, Hailey and Robbie! To many, many years of having fun together!

Red Rocks Wedding Photographer

Red Rocks Wedding Photographer. I had the great pleasure of photographing Stephanie and Graham’s wedding at Red Rocks recently. It was a gorgeous Colorado day along the Front Range foothills to take some beautiful photos. A fairly intimate affair, with many guests coming in from the couple’s homestate of Tennessee, including their Nashville musician friend, Dave Kennedy, playing sweet tunes before the ceremony at the Trading Post and during the reception in the Rock Room. What a gorgeous area to get married, with the convenience of being so close to Denver. And being part of the activity and history that surrounds the Red Rocks Amphitheater made it that much more fun. So, let’s jump to it–please enjoy a selection of the bride and groom’s wedding photos! And let’s all hold up our lighters as we cheer on Stephanie and Graham on many wonderful years together!

Devils Thumb Ranch Wedding

The Devils Thumb Ranch wedding this past weekend was really quite spectacular. It was nestled in the Colorado high country, just beyond Winter Park and Fraser in the mountains west of Denver. As you’ll see from the photos, the location is just stunning. That can’t be denied. But when you get a collection of so many really kind people together, that’s when everything just feels right–and the scenery just becomes secondary. It was an awesome honor to be Shelby and Blake’s wedding photographer. A huge congrats out to them! And it was also a real joy to work along side the fine folks at Love This Day Events and to rock out to awesome tunes played by Groove Nation. Ok, enjoy a little sampling of Shelby and Blake’s wedding photography!

Evergreen Wedding Photographer

Evergreen Wedding Photographer. I have several things to say. Like bullet points, without the bullets. This is was my first time back to Evergreen Lake House after photographing my very first wedding there several years ago. Things were different this time. Actually, besides the light being different, the Lake House itself was exactly the same. Exactly. What was different was me. Over the years I’ve really grown. In one way, I’ve grown to understand that I absolutely love to photograph weddings. I had no idea how much I’d fall in love with weddings when I was testing the waters many years back. I also have a much deeper understanding of my own photography–how to express the things that happen in front of me with my own unique photographic voice. Having that platform to operate from, I can more clearly focus on my couples and the loved ones that surround them on their wedding day. So, with a focus on my couple, let’s talk about Merissa and Teresa. They are awesome. They are in love. They are lovable. They make me feel honored, because they themselves are wedding photographers and chose me as their wedding photographer–to be there with them for their celebration. And they are awesome in many other ways. Teresa is a bad-ass nurse, who was recently awarded “Nurse of the Year” at her hospital. Also, Merissa is running another great artistic endeavor with her painting parties that you should certainly check out. They got ready for their wedding in what was essentially a tree house in the woods. They arrived to their ceremony in a canoe. They have some little people–of the young variety (like early-middle elementary school age)–in their lives that gave some of the best, most mature, heart-felt, and impromptu speeches I’ve ever heard before–even compared to very well-prepared adults. I could go on and on with these non-bulleted bullet points, but what do you say we just take a look at a small collection of the photos from their day. Enjoy! And many congrats to you, Teresa and Merissa!

Clocktower Wedding – Downtown Denver

Two things. Denver’s Daniels & Fisher Clocktower and Meow Mix. As unique as the first thing is for a wedding, a clocktower wedding requires little explanation apart from these photos. The second thing requires a little more explanation, if you weren’t in attendance at this fabulous wedding. You see, Jen and Gregg’s Best Man–Gregg’s brother–gave a most-engaging speech. He explained how, as the older brother, he used to make Gregg do things when their parents left the house–like eat Meow Mix. Even though these are just the kinds of things (some) kids do, as an adult, he felt a bit remorseful. So, as an act of true repentance, in front of all these folks, he volunteered to feed himself a handful of Meow Mix. And he did it. A handful, in the mouth, chewed up, and swallowed. Jen and Gregg–thank you for having me as your wedding photographer. It was a truly special time with the two of you and all your loved ones!

Beaver Creek Wedding Photography

Beaver Creek wedding photography. I had not met Veronica and Carl until their wedding day. They came to celebrate in Colorado from Connecticut, by way of Texas and Chicago. I drove up to the mountains from Denver, curious as to what I’d find. More like, who I’d find. I knew the location was sure to be beautiful for wedding photography–The Wedding Deck on top of Beaver Creek–accessible by a gorgeous chairlift ride, as well as The Hyatt at Beaver Creek. I knew some of the other vendors were going to be great to work with, having been the wedding photographer at events with them in the past–wedding planners and florists, Dina and Stacy, from Petal and Bean; as well as DJ Courtney Hampton of Hampton Entertainment. But, who are Veronica and Carl? Wedding photographers always want to know what make their couples tick and I couldn’t wait to find out. Well, it turns out that Veronica and Carl couldn’t have been nicer folks. I immediately felt very comfortable with both of them and that set the stage for the day. The whole day and night was filled with love between Veronica, Carl, and their nearest and dearest loved ones that surrounded them to support the start of their marriage together. So, Veronica and Carl–thank you for having me as your photographer. And I hope you get to come back out to Colorado soon. For now, please enjoy this little collection of photos from your wedding day! Oh–and I just have to mention the cupcakes… oh boy… these cupcakes from Batter Cupcakes were ah-mazing! I stood in line, in the heat, for an hour, in NYC for Magnolia Cupcakes. If I am going to compare those or any I’ve ever had–worlds apart! Sooooooooo good!

Vail – Beaver Creek Wedding Photography

Vail – Beaver Creek Wedding Photography. Staci and Kyle came up from Texas to get married Colorado-style. It was a beautiful Spring wedding that took place at the Tivoli and Larkspur in Vail, as well as their wedding ceremony at the Chapel at Beaver Creek. It was fantastic to be able to spend the day with the two of them and their closest of family and friends, most of whom also came up to the mountains from Texas to celebrate with the lovely bride and groom. Thank you for making me a part of it. It was an honor. And here’s to many years of fun together and most imminently– enjoy your honeymoon in Maui!
