Shaun & Kelsey

Boulder Colorado . Mountain Wedding . Shaun & KelseyShaun and Kelsey.

Some of you folks reading this probably know them already, so you know how simply great they are. Believe it or not, but I actually culled down this journal entry quite a bit from the first draft… the whole day was filled with such intentionality that it was difficult to do away any more of those in between moments, even though they may not have been the obvious, portfolio worthy images (whatever “portfolio worthy” might mean). What we’re left with here is a glimpse, long winded yet still cursory, into the happenings of that day…

There’s a notion of the video that Kelsey made for Shaun as a wedding gift – a surprise remake of the same video he had made to ask her to a dance years before. And you might see in Shaun’s reaction, in his smile, the natural warmth that immediately sets the people around him at ease.

You may catch the way Kelsey’s mom is so present, so there, with her daughter as they prepare for the day, and if you’ve read Kelsey’s blog, that character of presence might give you a bit of context as to why her own reflections on life are so attendant and insightful.

You see guests unloading and hauling the benches to set up for the ceremony alongside a lake, up against a mountain, which represents so much about who Shaun and Kelsey are and the kind of people they have surrounding them.

A quick frame of a friend, taking it upon himself to clear scrub from the aisle so Kelsey’s dress wouldn’t snag.

And so on. Just a look.

These are some of the people and relationships that I’m reminded of from that Saturday in June of 2014, and I can only hope that these images will do the same thing for Shaun and Kelsey many years down the way.
