Charlotte and I got the opportunity to work a great intimate wedding at one of the best venues I’ve been to. Danielle and Jeff got married at the Wild Basin Lodge in Roosevelt National Forest and it couldn’t have been a better day. The staff at the Lodge were incredible and made sure everything went perfectly. The bride and groom were big outdoor lovers and that is why they chose a location that was right in the woods. I spent some time with Jeff while he was getting ready and we talked about skiing and mountain biking and where our favorite spots were. I try to find some connection to every couple I work with but it was particularly easy with Jeff. The other factor that made this such a great event to photograph was the gorgeous light that we were getting from the overcast sky. Yes, most photographers LOVE overcast days because it means they can photograph everywhere without having to worry about “raccoon eyes” and hard light from overhead sun. The clouds turn the sun into a giant softbox, making the light beautiful and soft.

I love the rustic feel of this gorgeous amphitheater! The location really enhanced the real-ness of the event. (I know, I just made up the word ‘real-ness’ but I’m a wedding photographer, not an english major. 😉 )
Jeff looked really handsome on his wedding day; So did the two family dogs in there red bowties! Here is Rudy, soaking in some sun.
The guys got ready in a cabin that was a short walk from the venue:
