Marla’s work speaks for itself. Her ability to use lighting and her gregarious personality is outstanding. While she is a wildly talented photographer, I choose Marla because she is a story teller. Our wedding photos tell the story of our day. When I am old and grey, and my memories have faded, I will look at my album and see my 16 year old brother stealing a drink and being caught by my Dad. I’ll see my mom’s nervous excitement during the vows and his Dad’s hidden tears. Marla captured my day flawlessly, capturing the vast range of emotions that everyone experienced.

– Haley & Danny

 

If you hike along the Lair of the Bear trail near Morrison Colorado you may come across Colorado’s hidden gem The Dunafon Castle. Complete with a water wheel, fountain and a landscape fit for royals, it’s a private residence that rents out for events and weddings. When Haley and Danny accidentally came across this venue on their hike they knew they had to have their wedding there. It was one of the most loving weddings I’ve ever photographed with two amazing families coming together to celebrate this adorable couple. They also had the most attentive wedding party which super helpful throughout the day. They did everything from making sure Haley wasn’t sweating too much by blowing a fan on her, re-applying her lip gloss before the portraits, groomsmen offering their tie to Danny when they could not find his and helping my team gather the family after the ceremony for portraits. Not everything goes according to planned when photographing a wedding for there’s lot of moving parts, so when people help us with small challenges it makes our job as photographers focus on what we do best, the photography. Not only did they have the coolest  friends but they also ordered a fog machine from the DJ for their first dance which very cool! It added a cool special effect to the photos and was absolutely perfect for this setting. Enjoy!
