One of the genuinely enchanted spots on earth, the Vail Valley offers breathtaking wedding scenes four seasons a year. Photography coverages can be designed to include side trips up the gondola for panoramic images that contain the Gore Mountain Range, Bald Mountain, and Mountain of the Holy Cross. There are limitless photo spot among the intimate sideways, tunnels, and shaded paths along Gore Creek, Lionshead, and the Betty Ford Gardens. Given that many of the photo spots sit in a valley, special care is taken to plan for the changing light — Autumn can be particularly tricky getting the most magical combination of scene, light, and movement.

To date, I've documented events at the Sonnenalp, The Lodge At Vail, Vail Four Seasons, Vail Golf Club, Vail Interfaith Chapel, EagleVail Pavilion, Donovan Pavilion, Vail Wedding Deck, and the Vail Marriott.

"Am I falling for this guy?" was our Denver nurse's question to herself deep on an international adventure. And why not, after all, Mitui is the most successful tour operator in all of Tanzania. His face is in permanent smile mode, and he has a sixth sense about making everyone around him feel at ease. Even though our most eligible bachelor on the Serengeti had a lot of adventures on his life's odometer was humbled at first seeing the Gore Mountain Range near Vail, Colorado. "Majestic."

While the bride and groom call Colorado home, the rest of family & friends flew in for a destination reunion. It was a Vail Golf Club wedding to remember with perfect Summer temperatures, no rain, and a beautiful island ceremony designed by Distinctive Mountain Events. At some point, the reception fades to a blur of time at the shot ski, moments on the hora chair and laughs outside enjoy all those legal things in Colorado.


Donovan Pavilion Wedding | Lisa + Matt

I don't know what age it is when you cease to be so self-obsessed. There's a not-so-straight line between always looking over your shoulder in your teen years and high school, so conscious of what everyone thinks of you, to being mentally independent. You know who you are and you're comfortable in your skin. Sometimes it takes a move across the country, some significant challenges on the job or a life crisis or two. As a wedding photographer, I can immediately tell if clients have jumped over the bridge. Those on the other side don't care about "how everyone else does it." They know they're crazy (like everyone else is) and they're just going to enjoy life with their crazy friends and insane family. Do you want to see how that looks? Scroll back and look above at Lisa and Matt's day. Grown-ups, lit, at high altitude.

“Brides adore this Fort Collins photographer’s flexibility, making posed portraits painless and focusing on documenting your day in a photojournalistic style. ‘People look at ease and natural in all of his photos,’ says one bride. ‘I would highly recommend him to anyone.’” — The Knot, Best Of Weddings

“Tom is as professional as they come, not to mention extremely nice and talented! He made us feel very comfortable in front of the camera, and half the time we didn’t even notice he was there. He captured many candid shots of our guests and family, and every picture turned out BEAUTIFUL! We couldn’t be happier with his service and the quality of the product. We have hundreds of pictures to help us remember our special day for the rest of our lives, and beyond.” — Denver Bride on

“Tom was professional, fun, experienced and organized. He made dealing with my very large side of the family a breeze!! Our pictures turned out phenomenal…such a talented man!!” — Fort Collins Bride on

“Tom was an absolute pleasure to work with. I highly recommend his services to anyone.” — Wyoming Destination Wedding Groom on

“I was sick at my wedding and had only been out of a wheelchair a few days. He worked very well with me and took the time to take the pictures. I forgot to get a videographer and he did an amazing job capturing all of the little moments. Its wonderful looking back at the pictures and seeing all of those little moments.” — Denver Bride on

“I’m so pleased with the pictures! He got some great angles and captured all the important moments. Very reasonably priced for his great work! Nice guy and actually gets to know you a bit before the big day.” — Fort Collins Bride on

“Tom is a great photographer, most photos are candid and not posed for that really great natural look. In a 7 hour time frame he took around 3000 pictures and narrowed them down and got them to us within the next two days and they were BEAUTIFUL! Our venue and florist thought so too and are now using them in their advertisements. You barely know he is there but he gets the best shots of the day!” — Fort Collins Bride on

“We hired Tom based on the references from several family members who knew him from other weddings. The service and pictures were fabulous. He arrived early, stayed late and had our photos online quickly. Our disc came just after we came back from our Honeymoon. Awesome!” — Denver Groom on

“Tom was absolutely incredible throughout the entire wedding process. Not only is he an incredibly talented and dedicated photographer, but he was also affordable, flexible, and constantly pleasant to work with. Our wedding photos turned out better than we could have dreamed, and I will treasure them for years to come. I am so glad that we hired Tom, and I cannot stress enough how highly I recommend him.” — Taylor W. (bride) on Google+

“Tom was amazing and did a fantastic job! We were a little panicked about the photography – worried we wouldn’t get every picture we wanted, who would we forget, and what would be missed. We even spent a couple of nights making lists of all the pictures we wanted. Then we met with Tom a couple of days before the wedding, and both threw out our lists and breathed a sigh of relief. He put us totally at ease, and took time getting to know us and what we envisioned. Then the day of the wedding came, and he was great. We have large families (divorced parents, remarried parents, etc.) with a lot of personalities and he did an amazing job of rolling with the punches and keeping everyone moving and where they needed to be for the family photos. Then the event started, and I felt like I never saw Tom or his daughter who was also photographing the wedding for us. I was a little bit worried until I realized every time something important happened, I would feel like Tom wasn’t there but then I would catch him out of the corner of my eye snapping away. He was never in the middle of everything, but he didn’t miss anything either. All around a wonderful experience that I am glad we got to share with Tom. The pictures turned out beautifully and I would definitely recommend him to anyone. Thanks again Tom!”  — Cas S. (groom) on Google+

“Ahh I cant say more positive things about Tom. He had the ability to capture the pure emotion and beauty of our special day! The pictures are breathtaking and look like they are right out of a couture wedding magazine! Tom is also a wonderful artist to work with – he made me laugh, feel natural, and sometimes I hardly noticed he was there. I am still in AWE!” — Ashley S. (bride) on Google+
