A small Colorado backyard wedding was a long time coming for Sara and Kevin after close to a decade together, multiple states and cities apart they both are finally doing what they love as professional ballet dancers in the same city with the same company, Colorado Ballet. It was with the greatest joy that I was able to be a part of Kevin and Sara’s beautiful intimate Colorado backyard wedding day.

Backyard Wedding Colorado Story

I met Kevin a few years  ago when I went to Colorado Ballet to take adult ballet classes. He was the first teacher in Denver I finally felt connected with as a non professional adult dancer. After a few weeks in class he announced to all of us that he was engaged. Being an Denver, Colorado intimate wedding photographer I probably had an over zealous amount of joy for him and his fiancé, Sara who I hadn’t meet yet.

After a few weeks of thinking about a crazy idea I had after class one day I asked Kevin if he and his fiancé would like to collaborate with me in creating photos that showcased dancing and couples connection. And guess what he said yes! We had a blast taking photos those you can see here.

Fast forward a few years and a handful more collaborations together they asked me to photograph their backyard wedding in Colorado. I was so beyond thrilled to be a part of their beautiful story. Most of which you can hear on their slideshow below the photos.

Kevin and Sara thank you so much for allowing me to be apart of your beautiful journey and story and backyard wedding in Colorado!
