A few weekends ago I had the pleasure of heading to Vail to photograph Collins and Patrick’s wedding with Nate from J. Nelson Photography. It was a beautiful summer day to celebrate their wedding at the Vail Chapel with an afternoon reception at the Sonnenalp Resort. Before the ceremony, I hung out with the guys, while Nate photographed the ladies getting ready. These guys were some of the most easy-going, laid back gentlemen I have photographed yet. Patrick has an infectious laugh and with Collins constant smiling, I could tell these two were a perfect pair! Here are some of my favorite images from the day.
