As a Colorado family photographer, I am a sucker for a good location. Mountains? Yes. The beach? Yes. Your home? Yep. Luckily, I know of this amazing family that is always down for a crazy good time- especially if an epic location is involved.
A videographer friend of mine, Nick Thayer (owner of Narrative Imagery) and I were shooting a wedding together in Vail, Colorado on a summer afternoon. Vail is the spot to go when in Colorado. It’s known for it’s stunning views and overall mountain vibe. We know we couldn’t let an opportunity go by without shooting as much as we could while there. So…we put out a super cheap offer. Stupid cheap. But we knew the right family was going to respond and make some magic with us.
Colorado Family Comes in Clutch
Of course Ashlie responded. Ashlie is one of my favorite people to photograph. Ever. She is incredibly beautiful in every way possible, and is an absolute dream client as a Colorado family photographer. The best part, though, is her sense of style. She knows how to dress her large family in a way that is coordinated to the max. Her use of colors, patterns, and textures makes me want to hire her as a stylist for my small business.
We met Ashlie at this little slice of Heaven right off of the highway and started with her famliy photos. I was off shooting her session while Nick was grabbing video. This was Nick and I’s second time doing a photo/video combo with Ashlie so it helped that we all knew how to work together. Well, sorta. Nick and I still ended up in each other’s shot half of the time, but that’s okay. Hahahah! We are getting the hang of it with every job we do together.
The Highlight of My Night
The family was able to catch some pretty crazy alpenglow at the end of her session, and that was the highlight of the evening for me.
