Castle Rock Church Wedding | denver 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!)

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! 😉

    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!
