I’m proud to be a Devil’s Thumb Ranch Wedding Photographer — capturing love in 6,000 love-filled acres the heart of the Colorado Rockies.
Devils Thumb Ranch Wedding Photographer | Winter Park, Colorado
In the not too distant past, if you told someone you were going to have a wedding at Devil’s Thumb Ranch, they’d think it was going to be some sort of cool cross-country skiing affair. After all, Devil’s Thumb was known since the 1970’s as beautiful (but sleepy) Nordic ski facility. A nice warming hut/lunch room in the spoke of incredibly scenic trails near an old stagecoach line. I used to emcee events at the warming hut when I worked for KBCO, which was convenient as my date (later wife) was an avid Nordic fan. Bruce Cockburn records, bottle of wine and s’mores around the fire. Today, it’s a world class facility with a staff to match, yet the famed Nordic trails are still there and the land itself looks just as any old timer would remember. This is a low-impact high-end getaway.
First time visitors to Devil’s Thumb are struck by the sweeping panorama of the Colorado Divide and the wide-open air where anything can happen. Bring a mountain bike as the trails are rewarding, as is the hiking, horseback riding, and you’re a quick walk away from one of Colorado’s highest zip lines.
Since 2008, I’ve been photographing Devils Thumb Ranch Wedding at this serene spot. Outdoor images take on that classic you-in-the-lanscape among the water, wildflowers and dynamic skies. Many couple’s who host family and friends here call it the “best weekend of our lives.” We try to keep the photographic process as discreet as possible so your remember a wedding, not a photo shoot. Aiming to capture real moments, the fastest cameras are used with very sharp lenses and creative wireless flash when the lights go down. We work fast, in the background. Our photo coverage is tailored to your day — number of photographers, length of coverage, and final printed works all to your desire.
Why I Love a Devils Thumb Ranch Wedding
My wife and I recently celebrated our 20th anniversary (thank you), and as you imagine reviewing our wedding images was a big part of the celebration. On your anniversary it’s not images of the material things that will warm your heart, it’s the shots of your favorite aunt tell that joke she always tells. It’s the shots of your best friend dancing your parents. It’s the unexpected images of you eyeing your new spouse from across a busy room. We’ve been there. We know what it’s like to be in the middle of this perfect (planned) storm, and the rhythm of when to step in versus when to step back and journal it all.
Weather it’s a destination wedding or your permanently here for a reason (and not just a season), I’d be honored to document your day. Please click on the CONTACT text button for availability and service details.
