Lionsgate Event Center Wedding Photos | Colorado Wedding Photographer | Kathryn Kim Photography | Lionsgate Gatehouse

When Allie and Kyle hired me to document their Lionsgate Event Center wedding photos, I was beyond thrilled! Let’s back up a minute though and visit my history with these two. A couple years back, I photographed a wedding and the bride and groom were Kelsey and Marshall. Kyle is Marshall’s brother, and all 4 of them are super close friends. So Kyle and Allie were both in the wedding party. I got to know them a bit through that super fun wedding. I was so excited to hear a year or so later that Allie and Kyle were engaged!

We got to chatting about what they envisioned for their Lionsgate Event Center wedding photos, and I was so excited when they chose me as their photographer! You may recall their gorgeous fall Evergreen engagement session. We caught some beautiful yellow aspens up at Squaw Pass. They were adorable, so cute and snuggly, and I knew their wedding was going to be amazing as well!

November 11 turned out to be a perfect fall day. Even better for a wedding day! After getting ready photos, we went to Davidson Mesa Trailhead in Louisville for the first look and some bridal party photos. It was absolutely beautiful! Next we headed on to the venue for some more Lionsgate Event Center wedding photos. Allie and Kyle’s crew is super fun, so of course I got some fun dancing photos of them! We also grabbed a few bride and groom photos inside the Chandelier Barn, which is absolutely unreal! I’ve never seen anything like it.

Allie and Kyle, it was truly an honor to capture your Lionsgate Event Center wedding photos, and I am so so happy for you two!! Enjoy this sneak peek of my faves from the day!

Stone Mountain Lodge Wedding | Colorado Mountain Wedding Photographer | Lyons Colorado Wedding Venues

 

Mandy and Greg wanted to facetime and get to know me a bit after inquiring about using me as their wedding photographer. Within the first few minutes I could tell we were going to be a great match! Greg was cracking jokes and Mandy was laughing hysterically. That about sums them up right there! These two are such an incredible couple. They are super fun and easy going! When they started telling me about their Stone Mountain Lodge wedding, I knew it was going to be a dream! Mandy told me how one of the perks of the venue is that they take you up the mountain in an ATV for bride and portraits. Um, yes please! Talk about an incredible view for photos!

Everything about this Stone Mountain Lodge wedding was perfection. This venue has so many little nooks for beautiful photos. I mean just look at this first dress shot for example! Talk about the perfect little spot for it! I feel that I also mention the fact that I’m pretty sure Greg was trying to make everyone at the ceremony bawl their eyes out. He is super emotional and was crying throughout. And then he and Mandy shared the sweetest moment with Greg’s daughter by making her promises and giving her a special necklace. Trust me, I looked around and there were no dry eyes in the place! It was the most emotional ceremony I’ve documented yet.

I hope you enjoy my favorites from this gorgeous wedding! If you are planning a Stone Mountain Lodge wedding, don’t hesitate to reach out! I would absolutely love to capture it for you, and to work here again! Get in touch and let’s get to planning πŸ™‚ Happy Wednesday everyone!

Villa Parker Wedding | Kathryn Kim Photography | Colorado Wedding Venues

Sammi and Conlin are high school sweethearts! There is always something so special about young love like that. I just love it! You might remember these two sweet souls from their Loveland Pass engagement session I posted not too long ago. Feel free to check out that epic mountain session again real quick right here! Earlier this year I met with Sammi and we talked about their sweet love story, and then their incredible Villa Parker wedding they were planning. I was ecstatic because this is truly one of my favorite Colorado wedding venues! I adore the Spanish feel that it has, and the gorgeous stucco. It definitely doesn’t feel like you’re in Colorado!

I had previously shot Villa Parker weddings on their back lawn, which is beautiful. But Sammi and Conlin had their ceremony right in front of the entrance to the building, which has super fun string lights, and a fountain with beautiful flower bouquets. It was absolute perfection! I loved capturing the Spanish feel in the ceremony in addition to the portraits! There are so many beautiful locations around the venue for bride and groom and bridal party photos. I had a blast taking Sammi and Conlin around and taking full advantage of all the scenic spots! It was an August wedding, and therefore everything was very green and lush. It looked like a dream with the soft pink bridesmaids dresses.

If you are planning a Villa Parker wedding, I would love to chat with you about your special day! I adore any chance to photograph couples at this stunning Colorado wedding venue! I hope you enjoy my favorite photos from Sammi and Conlin’s incredibly gorgeous wedding!

Evergreen Engagement Session | Kathryn Kim Photography | Evergreen Colorado Engagements | Colorado Mountain Engagement Photos

Let me start out by saying that Carol and Ryan are a couple of fantastic people! We met over craft beer, and they shared with me their love for hiking, skiing/snowboarding, brewing, and woodworking. I knew immediately that we were meant to be, and thankfully they agreed! Carol and Ryan wanted a fall engagement session, filled with amazing Colorado colors and some mountains. We found just that in our Evergreen engagement session in October. We were able to catch the tail end of the amazing yellow fall colors amidst all of our busy fall schedules.

Ryan and Carol are planning a beautiful wedding at YMCA of the Rockies for next summer. This is one of my favorite wedding venues in Colorado! I absolutely love all of the epic mountain views that it offers! And not to mention that it’s so close to Rocky Mountain National Park. This park is one of the best spots for bride and groom or bridal party portraits! I cannot wait to photograph their intimate, laid back mountain wedding! I can tell already that it’s going to represent them so well. Who wouldn’t want to be surrounded by those they love the most on the most special day of their lives?!

Evergreen engagement sessions have become some of my favorites. It’s a pretty incredible location to photograph in the fall! And I love that it’s close to the Denver area, but still gives great mountain views. It’s just fabulous! I hope you enjoy these sweet engagement photos like I do! Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you are seeking an Evergreen engagement session, or any kind of engagement session or wedding here in the lovely state of Colorado. I would love to chat with you!

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. πŸ™‚

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!
