Ashley + Tommy | The Vinoy, St. Petersburg, Florida Wedding | Colorado Wedding Photographers

Ashley and Tommy had a spectacular New Years Eve wedding at the Vinoy in St. Petersburg, Florida.  I was more than honored to capture this beautiful evening ceremony for many reasons. Shortly into the wedding planning Ashley’s father passed away unexpectedly. They honored him in such a beautiful way — he wanted to do something amazing with fireworks since it was a NYE wedding and he was a huge firework fanatic. Well, after his passing when I came along and they hired me for the wedding, Ashley’s mom had a surprise for them on their wedding day that very few knew about. After the wedding there was a firework show just for them, put on in memory of her father. It was AWESOME! Cue the…

Hadley June | Colorado Family Photographer | Colorado Family Session

Colorado Family Photographer Session

Ever since we found our home in Colorado, Hadley loves to walk down the street from our “new house” (several times a day even) to visit the horses that live nearby. We moved just as fall was coming to an end so we got to see some of the beautiful weather, but pretty much all the leaves had fallen and it was starting to snow more and more often. She wants to walk there and sometimes I tell her we can’t today, it’s too cold. We drive past them on our way in and out and ask how they’re doing, bring them apples and make sure they have their horse blankets on. I know it’s a bit early in the season to say I can’t…

Iceland Travels | Colorado and Travel Photographer | Alison Epps Photography

Iceland_Destination_Photographer_0261

Would it just suffice to say I can’t possibly tell all the stories and memories created on this once-in-a-lifetime trip, that you’ll have to go see for yourself? Iceland is truly out of this world crazy beautiful. Saying that around every turn was another picture isn’t even an accurate description. We had 3 photographers on this trip, so at each corner we had 20 different beautiful captures. Everything posted below is a combination of 35mm, medium format film, and a handful of digital for the situations that were super wet, specifically the geyser and the glacier hike. Below all of them are the fun phone pictures I had to include too! Speaking of which, the glacier hike… I am still not sure how the guys…

Lindsey + Don | Pensacola Beach Destination Wedding | Colorado Wedding Photographers

Pensacola_Beach_Wedding_Photographer_0208

Lindsey and Don had one of the most stunning beach weddings that I have ever photographed in Pensacola, FL, and trust that I have photographed my share of seaside weddings living on the great big peninsula that is Florida. I got to work with one of the most fantastic coordinators ever, Emily with Sweet Pea Events, who made the most of the day and planned accordingly all the way from Seattle so the timeline was flawless. I got to photograph Lindsey and Don in their hometown of Dallas back in April for their engagement session and we had a blast touring the botanical gardens at the Dallas Arboretum. Be sure to check out all of those lovely photographs here. One of the things that made…

Rebecca + Greg | Winter Park, Florida Backyard Wedding | Destination Fine Art Wedding

Winter_Park_Wedding_Photographer_0173

Rebecca and Greg are a fairytale couple and their Winter Park, Florida backyard wedding was nothing but a joyous occasion. Rebecca’s middle name is Joy and it just oozes out of her. You can see the it on their faces as the day was full of laughter as they focused their minds on their God-centered marriage. She was SO pumped for their first look that they didn’t do your typical walk-up-and-tap-him-on-the-shoulder, they RAN! They bolted as fast as they could into each others arms. The ceremony and reception took place in her parent’s back yard in Winter Park. They danced the night away by the pool, serving none other than the best barbecue in town – 4 Rivers Catering. Below you can read Rebecca’s fun…
