Tyler and Lynn | Old Thompson Barn Wedding

Savannah Chandler Photography | Aspen Wedding Photographer

I met Lynn and Tyler through a couple whose wedding I had photographed a few years back. We first met at the very beginning of 2020, hiking up the Mount Bierstadt trail for their winter engagement session. Not too long after our snowy day post-holing up to a viewpoint of Bierstadt and the Sawtooth, the world flipped upside down.

As the summer of 2020 began to approach and Covid cases here in Colorado leveled out (for a while, at least), wedding venues began to allow ceremonies and receptions to move forward as long as proper restrictions were being followed.

It was always Tyler and Lynn’s intention to have a more intimate wedding celebration, so the Pitkin and Garfield County cap of 50 guests was right in line with what they had been planning all along.

On a beautiful September day, I headed up to the Old Thompson Barn to celebrate with Tyler and Lynn. I absolutely LOVE the Barn for hosting a local Carbondale / Aspen wedding – the views of 12,966′ Mt. Sopris are absolutely stunning.

For their ceremony, Tyler and Lynn were greeted with rays of sunshine and beautiful fall weather. Just before their vows, the couple took a few moments to say something about each and every guest that was in attendance at their wedding – including myself – which was so beautiful and an amazing way to personally thank everyone for celebrating with them.

To cap off their night, some lawn games and indoor distanced seating for conversation made for the perfect intimate setting. We took a few moments to sneak off and capture the Milky Way – which is always a personal favorite way to end our night together.

Thanks for inviting me to celebrate, Tyler and Lynn!

Cheers –

Recent Colorado Weddings


Colorado – my home for the past 34 years and counting.  My family were Pioneers from Norway and Germany to Colorado in the 1880’s.  I think it’s pretty amazing that our family has always had an interest in photography and capturing moments.  Growing up seeing photographs of our family in covered wagons on their way to Colorado is one of my fondest memories.
  Truly, I love Colorado and the amazing mountain ranges throughout.  I grew up heading into the Mountains on weekends to hike in the summer, and to snowboard in the winter.  I’m hapy to say that not much has changed, I’ve just added a husband and child into my adventerous outdoor mix.  My husband and I now take our little man out into the wilderness that Colorado has to offer, hoping to fill his young life with amazing memories and experiences.
I hosted my wedding in Evergreen, Colorado in May of 2011 at the Evergreen Lake House  .  After our wedding day,  I knew that I wanted to be a Colorado Wedding Photographer.  I was attending Metropolotian State University of Denver for fine art photography at the time, and the transition into a Wedding Photographer was fairly seamless.
I love adventuring to new places for weddings and elopements!  I hike regularly, and love showing couples my favorite spots.  There are amazing places in every corner and in every season.  Snowboarding is also a passion of mine, and I LOVE to capture couples shredding Pow Pow down the mountain.  Interested in a Colorado Hiking or Adventure Elopement?  Contact us on the form below!  Every year I have a list of locations that have special prices for couples wanting to hike, I’d love to chat about my current list!

"Savannah is an amazing person and photographer! She captured our wedding in every way we could imagaine. Looking back on the pictures she took makes us remember and feel those special moments. Savannah is very professional but at the same time will help load up carseats and offer a helping hand wherever she can. She is very knowledgeable from locations to take pictures to making us feel comfortable in directions to pose. We have nothing but good things to say. We definitely reccomend Savannah Chandler!"
