Shaun and Kelsey are a pair of those incredibly sincere and intentional people. The kind of people that you want to be around. The kind of people that conjure community and creativity and smiles from those around them. Needless to say, I was thrilled when they asked me to be there to document their wedding. I have a good bit more to share from this day down the line, but for the now, here’s a few scenes from their ceremony along the Great Continental Divide.

Brainard Lake, Colorado

nirav - Looking forward to this one. Such incredible people.
