the Castle Rock Church Wedding | denver area wedding photographer

When I booked Hannah + Ryan’s wedding, I had never met them in person. We had emailed and had a skype date. But, didn’t meet in person until their amazing Vintage Airplane Engagement Session. I fell in love with Hannah + Ryan and their once in a lifetime, movie quality love. They love each other in such an amazing way. Anyone that has ever been around them knows first hand how perfect they are together.
Hannah + Ryan got married at St. Francis of Assisi Church in Castle Rock, Colorado on a beautiful September day. I was lucky enough to have Adam with Adam Thornton Photography second shoot for me and he did an amazing job! (thanks again Adam!)

Hanging out with these ladies while they got ready was so much fun! They were hilarious!

I love when brides opt to have a first look with their dad. It is always so beautiful and I love watching Hannah and her dad, Troy, see each other for the first time. All the feels!

And then Hannah + Ryan saw each other and all those feels came right back!

I drive by St. Francis of Assisi Church almost daily since it is just down the road from my house and I have dreamed of one day shooting a wedding there.

The bridesmaids, Hannah’s future mother-in-law, mom, and grandmother/flower girl prayed over her before the ceremony. It was beautiful!

Hannah’s Grandparents were their ring bearer and flower girl. I loved every second of it!

One thing couples always worry about is if they have a first look then there won’t be that emotion when the bride is walking down the aisle. I still see it every time!

When I met Hannah + Ryan for their engagement session we talked about their first dance song. They hadn’t picked one yet. I may have helped! ­čśë

    That is so awesome that Grandma and Grandpa were the ring bearer and flower girl. And the pictures are all just stunning!

    Girl, your attention to detail and use of light is incredible. I LOVE the thumbs up shot as they’re coming down the aisle and the intimacy you captured. Beautiful wedding and beautiful images!

    I just love this! The ring shot with the shoes…so unique! And your use of light is so gorgeous. I have to say, grandparents as the flower girl and ring bearer might be the cutest thing I have EVER seen! You did such an amazing job capturing their picture perfect, movie quality love!

    These are gorgeous! Love how happy she looks in EVERY photo! She looks so giddy. Love it!
