I’m a wedding & elopement photographer for laid back couples that value the idea of being married more than just having a party. They want photos that show their true selves and represent their love of nature, and prefer to be more natural than overly posed.
Last August I participated in a shoot out event that was hosted by an amazing group of female photographers I am fortunate enough to be a part of. We had use of Polly, the cutest blue VW bus, which really created the most perfect Colorado free-spirited wedding feel. Katie, the bride, is also a phenomenal wedding photographer, but had the chance to step behind the lens and play in her wedding dress with her groom. This real life couple was super fun to work with and I’m so excited to finally blog these images, which is part three of my four part series of blog posts dedicated to this shoot out. Feel free to check out part one and part two in the series!
We were lucky enough to have this great VW van to use as a prop during the shoot. I just love the bright blue color, especially with his suit!
I just love when couples have fun together. Even though this was a styled shoot, these two are a real married couple and so in love. They walked through the tall, late summer grasses as the skies overhead were filling with heavy storm clouds.
The sun was playing peek-a-boo behind the clouds during this session. I just love how it was providing the most perfect rim lighting on their hair. This always makes my heart skip a beat when I get lighting like this!
The mountains are my favorite place in the world to be. I just love everything about this gorgeous open space park in Evergreen, CO.
I truly had a great time working with this couple and feel so fortunate to have been a part of this amazing Colorado free-spirited wedding styled shoot event! I deeply value educational opportunities which help me grow as a photographer.
Thank you to these amazing vendors/contributors who helped make this shoot possible:
Hair & makeup: Kim J. Beauty
Flowers: Prive Events
Polly, the VW bus: Blue Bus Booth
Organizer: Denver Photo Betties
Hey, I’m Erica, a lifestyle wedding photographer based out of Bend, OR. I love working with sentimental, free-spirited and natural couples who want to celebrate outdoors. I am always willing to travel for love and Colorado is my second home. If you are getting married, let’s chat. I still have a few dates open in 2017 and I’m now booking 2018 weddings.
These two are the perfect free spirited couple for those bus photos!!
