Polish + Ukrainian Dancers under an Icelandic Waterfall

Polish + Ukrainian Dancers under an Icelandic Waterfall

On an uncommonly sunny day in Icelandic spring, the sun rose bright and early…around 2:30am. Just as the sun peeked over the volcanic rock, Yana and Mario shared a kiss after 5 years of marriage. I always love anniversary sessions, and this one sure did deliver. It was a quick session since they both had to work back in Reykjavik, which was a few hours away. They are professional dancers and dance coaches! So of course, they had to show me a few of their moves during their session (and I photographed it cuz duh). Also, can we just talk about their outfits for a sec? They put the FIRE in the land of ice and fire.

Colorado Castle Wedding after a Summer Storm

Colorado Castle Wedding after a Summer Storm

The Colorado storm like clockwork started 10 minutes before the ceremony, and ended right in time to wipe down the chairs and still start the ceremony on time. The rain left beautiful, dramatic clouds and a few rainbows. The rain was quite a blessing. It left the air nice and cool and made taking photos ridiculously beautiful.

I Do Redo Vow Renewal Event

Weddings are supposed to be the one of the most exciting, magical, and happiest days of our lives. However, for many couples, this isn’t the case. I’ve heard dozens of stories of weather-cancelations, ugly photos, vendor mess-ups, low budgets, or general mishaps that make their wedding day not turn out as planned.
