s artists, they draw inspiration for their work from classic literature, the romanticism of the Edwardian Era, painters like Edgar Degas of the French Impressionists and Gustav Klimt an Art Nouveau and Symbolist painter, the poetry and essays from Ralph Waldo Emerson, John Muir, and Henry David Thoreau of the Transcendentalism movement. They study and draw upon the grace, poise, and tension of ballet and the gentle and striking movements of contemporary dance.
They are blessed to have the stunning landscapes of Telluride, Vail, Aspen, Beaver Creek, Estes Park, and Denver as backdrops for their local weddings in Colorado. Well traveled, they also serve destination weddings; having photographed weddings everywhere from the beaches of Hawaii, the vineyards of Napa, the Catskill Mountains of New York, and the canals of Holland.
We are Emily & Zach
I'm a Colorado girl. I grew up in these mountains and valleys.
Born and raised mountain strong in Estes Park, I love the outdoors & adventure.
In 2004, our own love story began at Colorado State University.
We are proof that "when you know you know"...
...we knew each other three weeks before we were engaged & married a year later.
In our free time you can find us hiking, snowboarding, or wandering a market.
Or we might be brunching, or curled up in the corner of a bookstore.
We love our work together. There's no one else we would rather have by our side.
We pair our passion for photography and travel...
...and meet our couples where their story leads us.
