I met Rachel and Keith back in early 2018, at what was described as a “coffee house”, but come to find out it was actually the coffee shop inside of the local Whole Foods Marketplace.  This ended up being great – for both Keith and myself are Gluten Free.  We ate our “glutenless” yummies and coffee and chatted for quite some time.  I’ve been so very fortunate to meet couples that are such great people and that I mesh so well with – Rachel and Keith are my kind of people.  Rachel is a Pediatrician and Keith is an Actuary.  Not gonna lie, my only experience with the word “actuary” is from Zootopia where the little tiger wants to be an Actuary when he grows up.  Haha.

September rolled around, in quite the dramatic fashion for my family, but I was SO excited to get to see Rachel and Keith again to photograph their Boulder wedding.  I met Rachel and the gals near Flatirons to get some getting ready photos prior to heading to Wedgewood, while my second (the amazing Megan Alvarez) met Keith and the dudes over at the venue.

Once ceremony time came, I knew that we’d be in for some tears, as well as humor.  One of my favorite parts looking back through the ceremony photographs is the look on Rachel’s mother’s face looking at Keith as her daughter approached the aisle – a very loving “look at how beautiful she is” gaze.  After toughing speeches amongst the lovely fall foliage, some dry humor, and lots of touching moments – Rachel and Keith proudly walked down the aisle as man and wife.

Fall foliage was something that was important to Rachel, and we fortunately got the surprise of an early fall this past year.  Though the trees weren’t at peak, we did get unexpected colors of reds and a few yellows.  We took full advantage of this for Rachel and Keith’s couple’s portraits.  We headed down to the creek, and with the cloudy skies I thought we’d be SOL for a sunset – I was WRONG on that front!  Just as we were wrapping up portraits, the sun peeked out and the sky turned a beautiful pink color.  It was a simply stunning way to end our “formal portraits” together.

Thank you for inviting us to celebrate with you, Rachel and Keith.  It was truly a beautiful day.  I can’t wait to go adventuring this year with you to get your adventure photographs!!!

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!"

Savannah was so great and managed to make us (two awkward people) feel super comfortable and thrilled about wedding photos. :) She saved our day with her flexibility and the pictures were better than we could've ever hoped for! Highly recommend!
