Boulder, Colorado Wedding Portraits | Katie+Kyle

Amazing bride and groom sunset photos in Boulder, Colorado.

“We met at a party I hosted for new graduate students. Katie walked in and my heart literally started beating faster. I then introduced myself and felt butterflies and instantly fell in love with her.”

Katie and Kyle’s Boulder, Colorado wedding portraits were a breeze to capture. Katie grew up in Colorado and has family there, so the two decided to tie the knot in her hometown, and anyone who knows me knows I can’t refuse an excuse to travel! It was a laid back evening, with a perfect sunset to top it off.

We drove up towards the mountains from Boulder, Colorado, and stopped at one of the trails. The sun kept peering in and out of the clouds, giving us lots of variety and great photo opportunities. Newlyweds walking on a trail in Boulder, Colorado, while holding hands.Newlyweds walking on a trail in Boulder, Colorado, while holding hands.Bride posing on a trail in Boulder, Colorado.Bride posing on a trail in Boulder, Colorado.Bride posing on a trail in Boulder, Colorado.

“We had a midsummers night dream/ fairy/ renaissance theme because we love fantasy. The theme was inspired by my dress. The sleeves reminded me of fairy wings. We jumped on that theme because it was a great excuse to buy lots of stuff at the Renaissance festival. Who doesn’t want an excuse to splurge on crowns and a sword? It also meant the year leading up to the wedding we had an excuse to go to every Ren Fest within driving distance.”Bride holding her dog during her Boulder, Colorado, wedding.Bride holding her dog during her Boulder, Colorado, wedding.

“The dog is our baby, so of course she was included. Plus, she’s damn cute.”

How did Kyle propose?

“I surprised Katie at Disneyland. She “relationship proposed” to me a year earlier, so I took her for her birthday and went to the wishing well. I got gold dollars and told her to “make a really good wish”. So we both made wishes. I asked what hers was,  she said, “I’m not telling you,  because then it won’t come true”. Then she said, “what’s yours?” I got down on one knee and said, “I wish for you to spend the rest of your life with me”. She of course said yes.”

From Katie, about how she knew Kyle was ‘the one’…

“Kyle and I were best friends but were dating other people. We’d go on dates, then meet up with each other to gossip about those dates. It was my mom who knew before I did. We were chatting on the phone and she was like “you keep talking about Kyle- why don’t you just date him?” and I was like “I honestly would, but his family seems kinda nuts, I don’t think I want to set myself up for that kind of drama”. And she said “Honey, if I had let crazy family drama stop me I never would have married your father”. How much my family loves Kyle should also be added to the “what I love about Kyle” list. My mom decided she loved him just from hearing me talk on the phone about him!”Newlyweds embracing on a bridge on a Boulder, Colorado trail in the Rockies mountains.Newlyweds embracing on a bridge on a Boulder, Colorado trail in the Rockies mountains.Newlyweds embracing on a bridge on a Boulder, Colorado trail in the Rockies mountains.Newlyweds embracing on a bridge on a Boulder, Colorado trail in the Rockies mountains.Bride and groom walking with their dog at a Boulder, Colorado hiking trail.

What does Katie love most about Kyle?

“I love Kyle’s resilience, his work ethic, his generous spirit, his sense of play, his healthy attitude towards the people in his life, the way he treats me, how much kids and animals love him, his cooking… gosh there are a lot of things, I can’t even list them all.”Bride and groom posing with the Rockie Mountains behind them.Bride and groom sitting on rocks in the Colorado Rockies.Bride and groom sitting on rocks in the Colorado Rockies.Bride and groom sitting on rocks in the Colorado Rockies.Bride and groom sitting on rocks in the Colorado Rockies.Bride and groom sitting on rocks in the Colorado Rockies.

We were nestled in a valley for these Boulder, Colorado wedding portraits photos, so we headed out of Boulder so we could capture the sunset with the Rocky Mountains in the background. Sunset photos overlooking the Colorado Rockies with bride and groom.Sunset photos overlooking the Colorado Rockies with bride and groom.Sunset photos overlooking the Colorado Rockies with bride and groom.Sunset photos overlooking the Colorado Rockies with bride and groom.

What is Katie most looking forward to as a married couple?

“Kyle is going to make such an amazing dad. He already has the dad jokes down. On a different note, part of what made it so easy to commit to Kyle is that we want the same things out of life. Our careers and family goals sync up so well. With Kyle it seems like every choice we want to make, the other wants to make as well.  It’s easy to make each other happy”.
