I knew after our first meeting over coffee, that Rachel and Robbie planned to host a truly unique, artistic, and raucous wedding! Not to mention, stunning. Set to the backdrop of Grand Lake in late fall, the energy of this celebration quivered like the final leaves left on the Aspen trees. And though I know it had something to do with the tilt of the earth, it felt as though the whole day unfolded as if through rose tinted glasses. Needless to say, we love the way this film came together and we hope you do too.
Taylor and Diana chose to celebrate their love by exploring somewhere totally new to them, and we couldn't be more happy that they chose to bring us along for the ride! Telluride was one in a series of adventures for this travel loving couple, and it set a stunning precedent for their life ahead. Our goal was to capture that adventure, their love for one another and their family, and all the beauty of the place, people, decor, and energy associated with this celebration. Taylor & Diana's incredible feedback means the world to us, and helps me believe we succeeded in achieving our goal:
"Ohmygosh! We love the video! You're so talented! It was wonderful to get to relive the wedding again through this film. It captured so much of the feel of the day, the love between Taylor and me, and the love between us and our family. You were able to capture a story and edit it such that it flows through the video perfectly. Really beautiful. Luckily, I worked from home today, so no one could see my crying...It's an amazing thing to know we'll have this video to watch for years and years to come and that, while watching it, we can be transported back to such an important, beautiful day in our lives. "
Thank you to all the folks who helped Taylor and Diana realize their vision, and to the lovely couple for including us in their special day!

We had the chance to work with three other stellar film makers on this project and what came out felt so good and unique that we had to share this piece! Elias & Roo shared such a beautiful celebration with their friends and family, in such a beautiful space, but what we enjoyed most about this grand film is how palpable the love between this couple is. We hope you enjoy!
When TJ Miller & Kate Gorney told us they wanted their wedding captured in a way that blended the feeling of The Wonder Years with the sensibility of Salvador Dali...I had no idea what that could, would, or should look like, but I knew I was up to the challenge. (I'm a pretty big Dali and Buñuel fan, and who doesn't like The Wonder Years!) Their celebration sounded beautiful, vintage, and just a bit off the beaten path, and that seemed like a great fit with our aesthetic. I was mostly roped in by the fact that TJ, who had grown up near Cheesman Park in Denver, CO was truly interested in highlighting the local talent Denver has to offer. In that vein, he brought in some people who we felt truly honored to collaborate with, such as their photographer Ashley Sawtelle, whose work from this wedding was featured in Town and Country. We took this love for Colorado creatives one step further in the edit by collaborating with the oh-so-talented Colorado based musician, Elin Palmer. Her song, Stora Stövlar, flows seamlessly with the super 8mm footage we captured from the day, and when we reached out to her to make sure the lyrics, which you'll note are not in English, made sense for a wedding film like this project, this is what she had to say, "The song lyrics, by the way, are suited perfect for a wedding, the gist of it: Two people walking with big boots through a city, feeling the energy of 1000 voices of the world. Chorus: Its was just …. You and Me….today." While they might not have been wearing literal big boots on their wedding day, as I start to see these two pop up more and more in films and other big productions, it does feel like they will be sharing some big boots together on their journey through life! We'll let the film tell the rest of the story, but it was a magical ride, and we hope you all enjoy!
