Erin and Jason
Beaver Creek, Colorado
July 21, 2007
What a beautiful spot for a wedding! Erin and Jason got married on a mountain at Beaver Creek resort, surrounded by wildflowers and ski slopes. We even had some wildlife that crashed the wedding! Erin and Jason had their wedding ceremony outside, with this beautiful backdrop. They celebrated their reception in Beano’s Cabin, a lavish log cabin restaurant high on the hills of Beaver Creek.
Our friend and fellow photographer, Steve Tinetti, photographed this wedding with Mike and me. I’ve second shot for Steve a few times, so it was really fun for him to join us at this wedding. He took some gorgeous photos, and I look forward to shooting with him again sometime.
The day began at the Charter hotel in Beaver Creek, where they had a rehearsal brunch.
Erin got ready in her family’s spectacular hotel suite.
Their wedding took place on the day that the final Harry Potter book was released.
Several of Erin and Jason’s friends and relatives were reading the book that morning.

Erin looked beautiful!
Then we all took shuttle buses up the mountain to Beano’s Cabin. What a cool venue!
Mike took this photo of Jason’s cousin, the wedding officiant, holding both rings.
Steve took this beautiful photo of Jason and Erin during our portrait session before the ceremony.
Here’s another of Steve’s wonderful portraits. Erin and Jason were willing to wander through
this field of wildflowers for their pictures, and the resulting photographs are beautiful.
Mike was lying on his stomach in the grass for this cool photo. We’ll do whatever it takes!
Mike wandered further into the field to get this photo of two unexpected guests.

Four porcupines crashed the wedding!
I’d never seen a porcupine before. They were adorable! Aw, look at that little face.
The food at Beano’s was exquisite.
During the reception, Mike hiked up the hill with our tripod, and took some gorgeous twilight photos.
