      Erin and Paul had a destination wedding on Saturday in beautiful Keystone. Keystone Ranch is one of my favorite venues, because of its vast lawns, reflective lake, and mountain views in all directions. As you can see in this picture, Erin and Paul are an adventurous couple who offered to climb hills for the sake of great photographs. Of course I loved that! Congratulations, Erin and Paul, and thanks for such a fun day!

      Everything came out great! I always love working with you Char, we’re like two peas in a pod. Your photos of this one are smashing! 🙂

      Wow, I ALWAYS love your dusk or night photo’s that you take of the location of the reception or of the couple. This one however, is by far my absolute favorite to date! Awesome job to you and Tamera, great photos!

      Charlotte, I’m such a fan. Your work impresses me more every time I visit your blog. Every image in this post is drop dead gorgeous!

      these are so absolutely beautiful. I miss Summit County so much.

      This would have been the mountain wedding of my dreams (if I had the choice when I got married), right down to the antler chandelier. Beautiful wedding, beautiful photos. How lucky the bride and groom are to have had the situation for that starry night photo.

      Oh Erin, Louise, Kevin …what a BEAUTIFUL Bride. and a beauiful place to be married. Erin looks lovely, so happy. I am happy for all of you. XO Barb
