I met Jiovanna and Kevin last year at Wedding Wars, a modern day Colorado based bridal show, where I was positioned right next to the bar.  We all know that’s the best place to be – next to the free booze.  After obtaining some of their provided yummies, Jio and Kevin stopped by to check out my work for their June 9, 2017 Boulder wedding.  After talking for a bit, they happened to win my complimentary engagement session.  It had to be fate, as Jio and Kevin are my kind of people.  We headed up to Rocky Mountain National Park for their adventure engagement session (which you can check out HERE), and had a great time spending the afternoon out in the wilderness.  They even brought a whole camping set up to photograph with – not gonna lie, it was pretty awesome (Rocky Mountain Bride agreed – check out the publication of their engagement session HERE).

Once June finally got here – I was so excited to meet up with Jio and Kevin again to celebrate their wedding day.  I just knew it was going to be a fun day all around.  When my second photographer (the very talented Ashley Kidder) and I arrived, the first thing I obsessed about was her hankie.  “Keep Your Shit Together”.  My new favorite wedding detail to date.  Once Jio was ready to go see her groom, we headed up Flagstaff Mountain to just over 8,000 feet at Lost Gulch Overlook.  If you’ve never been, it’s a lovely lookout area, overlooking the Indian Peaks Wilderness and Longs Peak.  For their first look, we made our way out onto the stunning rocky overlook (flats were DEFINITELY a good choice here.  After spending a few minutes up at Lost Gulch, we headed back to the cars to head down the mountain towards their venue and stopping at Chautauqua Park for a few photo ops – Where I NEARLY STEPPED ON A SNAKE.  I watched it wriggle away from my foot and got the willies – but there was no rattle on the tail so at least it was only a Bull snake.  #NoThanks

We spent the rest of the evening at The Wedgewood on Boulder Creek – a lovely venue along Boulder Creek up on Canyon Road.  They were so genuinely happy to get married, as I know it was a LOOONG time coming.  Nearly 10 years I do believe.  They were surrounded with their friends and family for the evening, where they hosted a variety of games as well as a S’mores bar.  We ended the evening out in front of the full moon rising up over the canyon, it was a lovely day.

Thank you again so much for inviting us to be a part of your wedding celebration!  Congratulations, Jio and Kevin!

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!"
