Rachel and Keith | Wedgewood on Boulder Creek Wedding

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!!!
