The 6ft beautiful soul that stands behind the lenses captures some of the most beautiful moments of life! Having the right person is crucial for one of the most important days of your life! Her work caught our attention in a wedding album at our venue.. I was so impressed that no one else could compare! Trust me I searched! Ultimately I just knew I had to have her shoot my wedding! Marla and her team were hands down so easy to work with and worth every penny spent! She’s given us memories that will last a lifetime. We could not be more pleased with her work and her turn around time was so quick! Our wedding will forever be remembered! 

  • Ashley & Vince

Ashley & Vince flew in from California for their Colorado wedding. Mellow, gorgeous and always positive these two were a match made in heaven. Vince pursued Ashley for 8 months until she finally said “Yes” to a date and after the third date he knew he wanted to marry her. Ashley knew he was the one when the topic of kids came up and she didn’t want to run for the door. Eight years after meeting they were able to pull together a gorgeous wedding at one of my favorite venues, and all with a newborn baby boy in their arms.

Ashley told me she wanted a fairytale wedding and indeed it was, complete with perhaps the biggest wedding (and heaviest) dress I have ever photographed. She managed to get all around the grounds like a champ, a super hero achievement in my books. It did take a few people to help with the train, and even when she fell backwards on it landing on her rear she pulled it off with a smile (see photo below). Maybe one of the more entertaining moments I got to photograph this season!

There’s a lot going on during wedding day and even with them running around neither one of them breaking a sweet in the summer heat. I asked Ashley if she had an advice for future brides …

“Things won’t go perfectly as planned, but know they are perfect in the plan. Enjoy your company. Mingle.. drink.. party… dance! And really enjoy the moment be in the present because the night goes by so fast!”
