Loveland Pass Engagement Session | Colorado Mountain Engagement Session | Kathryn Kim Photography | Colorado Engagement Photographer

Let’s talk about Sammi and Conlin and this epic engagement sesh real quick. These two are high school sweethearts. Who doesn’t love high school sweethearts?! They’re always the sweetest! Sammi told me they wanted mountains and trees for their shoot, and when we settled on a Loveland Pass engagement session, I was thrilled! I knew it was going to be absolutely perfect for them, and I think I was right. 🙂

We began in a little foresty area that looks like it’s from another country! The moss on the ground added such an interesting element! It was chilly, but these were snuggling a lot to stay warm. We moved on to the mountaintop and it was quite frigid up there. Extremely windy too! I was so excited to see Sammi’s dress that she changed into for this part of the session. It flowed so perfectly! Sammi was such a trooper braving the cold for an epic outcome. That’s my kinda bride right there!

I hope you enjoy this Loveland Pass engagement session as much as I enjoyed photographing it! And stay tuned for Sammi and Conlin’s sweet Villa Parker wedding. It will be hitting the blog soon!

Manor House Wedding | Littleton Colorado Wedding Venues | Littleton Wedding Photographer | The Manor House Littleton

 

Jessica and Sean’s Manor House Wedding in Littleton, Colorado was absolute perfection! We had a threat of rain, but thankfully it held off and allowed these two to have an outdoor ceremony as planned! Good thing because they love the view of Denver in the background of this gorgeous ceremony site. I love the Manor House wedding venue, and they have recently added on a reception building that is so beautiful! Let’s just say I was thrilled to see it in action with this wedding! I can’t get enough of the wooden beams and chandeliers, and all the white!

So I met Jessica and Sean before the wedding, and we had a lovely time getting to know each other over delicious Panera Bread treats. I knew they had something special and that their wedding was going to be incredible. From the amazing venue, to Jessica’s insane dress, to the fabulous flower decor and gold touches of decor. It came together so beautifully, and you could feel all the love!

Sean’s family is Turkish, and they surprised everyone by dancing to a Turkish song at the reception. It was a blast, and everyone was involved and loving it! If you are having a Manor House wedding I would absolutely love to chat with you about your wedding! Leave a comment, or email me and let’s talk! I truly love this venue!

Squaw Pass Road Engagement | Evergreen Colorado Engagement Session | Colorado Engagement Photographer

Ok, let’s talk for a minute about these sweeties. Besides the fact that they’re super adorable and madly in love, they are some of the sweetest and most genuine people! I am SO glad that they found me to document their love story! When they told me they wanted an Evergreen Colorado engagement session, I was thrilled! They wanted to show off the Colorado beauty in their session, and I knew just the spot!

So it won’t take you long to realize that these two have got the real deal going on. Talk about pure joy, laughter, being completely smitten with one another, and just plain better together. They are one of those couples that just makes you smile being around them. And maybe they make you cry when they start slow dancing during the session, and you feel like you shouldn’t even be there because it’s so intimate and sweet. Maybe, just maybe.

So these lovers are going to have the sweetest wedding in September, and I am so excited! They’re having Chick-fil-A catered for the reception, and let’s just say this pregnant photographer is STOKED! I hope you enjoy my favorites from this Evergreen Colorado engagement session, and that fall in love with Jess and Nathan too! Stay tuned for their beautiful September wedding that’s coming up quick!

{laura + scott} spruce mountain ranch wedding | larkspur wedding photographer | colorado mountain wedding

Kathryn Kim Photography | Spruce Mountain Ranch Wedding | Larkspur Wedding Photographer | Colorado Mountain Wedding

Laura and Scott are such a sweet couple, and I am so thankful to know them! We have mutual friends, and I was therefore thrilled when recommended to photograph their Spruce Mountain Ranch wedding! Spruce Mountain is a gorgeous venue in Larkspur, Colorado offering stunning mountain views and fields with many many cows. Yes please! It’s perfectly rustic with it’s incredibly massive  barn for the reception events.

Scott and Laura’s ceremony was scheduled to be held outdoors in the field. However, minutes before the ceremony was going to start, the rain started to come down. It was getting harder and harder, and we had just decided to send everyone indoors and wait it out, when the heavens opened! It started pouring rain, and even hailing! Everyone bolted to the barn, and we waited for the rain to stop, but it just wasn’t letting up. All the guests had great attitudes, and helped rearrange things to have the ceremony inside. It was not the first choice of location for the ceremony, but in the end Scott and Laura were just happy to be getting married! After all, that’s the main mission for this whole wedding day thing, right?! It was a beautiful ceremony, and everyone could feel the love!

Due to the crazy storm, some fog rolled in afterwards and as a result, we were able to get some amazingly epic foggy bride and groom photos! Let’s just say I was in photographer’s heaven! It was absolutely incredible, and rather worth the storm I’d say 😉 We got to have all of their dancing outdoors on the patio, and the rest of the evening was perfect! I hope you enjoy my faves from this lovely Spruce Mountain Ranch wedding!

{megan + jeremy} | vail golf club wedding | vail wedding photographer | kathryn kim photography | gore range | vail wedding island

Vail Golf Club Wedding | Kathryn Kim Photography | Vail Wedding Photographer | Vail Wedding Island | Gore Range

Ok so, small world here! I”ll give you the backstory really quick. I grew up in Georgia, and went to school for photography at the University of Georgia in Athens. My last year there, I was a waitress at a delightful pub called Trappeze. Jeremy, the groom here, was the manager. 8 years later I am out here living in Colorado, and Jeremy finds me on instagram. He was living out in Colorado as well, and was in fact engaged! He and Megan were having a Vail Golf Club wedding, and they wanted me to be their photographer! I was thrilled, and couldn’t believe that they found me all these years later!

Their wedding day was perfection. We began the day with a first look and bridal party photos at Betty Ford Alpine Gardens in Vail. This little beauty is tucked away and is such a treasure! It was green with amazing bright flowers, and everything we wanted for portraits. Megan and Jeremy had the sweetest first look, and Megan had me crying talking about how happy she was to have finally found her special person after all these years.

From the gardens, we made our way over to the Vail Golf Club for the ceremony. Jeremy and Megan had their Vail Golf Club wedding ceremony at Wedding Island. The stunning Gore Range was the perfect backdrop. You will see in the photos that it is so beautiful, it almost looks fake! That is Colorado for ya! Their ceremony was filled with so much love and joy, it really was contagious. I am so happy that Jeremy and Megan found each other! I hope you enjoy my favorite photos from their beautiful Vail Golf Club Wedding!

Her amazing lace dress, that gorgeous veil (I LOVE how you used it in so many photos – flowing in the wind, macro shots with it in the forefront), that insane ceremony spot facing the Gore range, absolutely perfect. Love your photos of their first look especially! 👏🏼
