My husband, Ken, and I have lived in Durango CO for a little over 5 years now. We love this town and all of the wonderful, kind, helpful, loving people who live here. Everybody helps each other out when the need arises. We work together photographing weddings and family portraits as well as high school seniors. I also photograph lovely ladies who want a boudoir session for their special significant other.
We live in a mountainous area about 20 miles east of Durango and the people in this community let everybody know what’s going on through a website set up specifically for all of us. We know when there’s a bear roaming around (or breaking into houses and cars), where the mountain lions are, and what dog has gotten loose.
Durango is also a tourist town and a great place to have a destination wedding. We get lots and lots of couples who come here from Texas, Oklahoma, and other states that don’t have the beautiful scenery that we have here. We also love that many of these brides and grooms remain friends on Facebook and we get to follow what they’re doing in their lives. We have many wedding couples from when we used to live in a different part of Colorado who are still friends – that means a lot to us.
The couples we have photographed really appreciate that we can give them names and contact information for other vendors they may need for their wedding. Some couples come here to elope, and others invite family and friends to share their special wedding day. I do believe their family and friends make a vacation out of the event and do some touristy things while they’er here, which is very wonderful.
These are some of our favorite images from 2017 weddings.

We still have some more weddings to photograph in Durango this year, but these are our favorites so far.
Thanks for taking the time to look.
