{Krissi & Ben | Wedding at Upper Schmid Ranch | KiKi Creates | Telluride, Colorado}

My favorite season is Colorado is in September when fall is slowly changing to winter. The aspens are super yellow and lively and the mountain tops are covered in snow. It’s the perfect contrast of light and dark and is a gorgeous time of year.

So you can only imagine my eyes when I pulled up for Krissi and Bens gorgeous wedding at Upper Schmid Ranch. It’s the perfect vibe of rustic beautiful woods and absolutely stunning Mountain View’s. And Krissi and Ben knew how to make it even that much better. A mobile bar, karaoke, multiple doggie guest, Polaroid photo booth, and a cupcake station.

It was certainly a day to remember and a wedding I absolutely loved being apart of.

Enjoy!

A Look Back on a Wedding & Lifestyle Photographers Best of 2017

Screen Shot 2018-01-11 at 8.54.26 AM2017, I feel like you were a blip in the radar because you went by so, so fast. But when laying out all I’ve done over the past 12 months, I’m amazed at all that has happened. Every year I think I need to push myself more, do more, create something new. But this year, although emotional and stressful. And at times, overwhelming. This year, I feel accomplished and satisfied and ready for more.

I began the year in Italy and after seeing some amazing places, I made the decision to add a location in my favorite tiny town, Crested Butte. I photographed 49 wedding, 36 engagements/portraits, and 59 photo booths. My busiest year by far brought on a second location, moving to Colorado, my thirtieth birthday, six very exciting awards for my photography and announcements that I am going to be an aunt for the first time x2!

Throughout the year we smiled, laughed, danced, photographed in the mountains, several beaches, under a waterfall and during a hurricane. Under the stars, the moon, at sunrise and sunset. During a snow storm, -1 degree weather and 101 degree weather. Traveled to Italy, Greece, Wyoming, South Dakota, Texas, Colorado, Maine, the Carolinas, and the Keys. Met tons of people and their adorable doggies. I had the opportunity to photograph firsts for a lot of couples. They opened up their homes, hearts and most intimate moments to me and I could not feel more grateful for their trust and love along the way.

It’s hard every year to narrow down a small group of images that are my “favorites”. Most of these are moments I couldn’t get out of my head throughout the year. Moments that made me feel secure in what I’m doing and moments that pushed me to become better at something I’ve been at for almost 8 years now. I can never seem to put together words that describe how amazing I think this life is. A life that I’ve built, but not alone. To everyone that has put their hand in helping me and my company, I am forever thankful. This has been another year where I wonder what would I do without photography. Where would I be? I’m hoping I’ll never have to face that. Because I truly love what I do and couldn’t imagine life without it. I hope your 2017 was prosperous and made you think about what in life makes you happy. And I hope in 2018, you go get that happiness. Cheers!

Love, KiKi

{Sara&David | Engagement Session | KiKi Creates | Neptune Beach, Florida}

The latest sunrise of the year brought on this gorgeous engagement shoot. Sara & David dressed in their finest (I mean look at Sara’s dress!) and within minutes were knee deep in the ocean waves. It was a phenomenal sunrise and happy I got to share it with these two on their visit from New York.

Enjoy!

{Mother & Daughter Session | KiKi Creates | Crested Butte, Colorado}

My good friend Courtney had a photo session planned with her mom when she came in town this past summer. When she first approached me she asked, “is it weird for a 30 year old to do a mother daughter session? I always see it with little kids.” It’s true, but just because you don’t see it doesn’t mean it can’t be done! And that is the true Courtney Burton way!

In honor of my mother’s birthday week and the fact that I would love to have a mother daughter session with my mom, I’ve posted these lovely photos. Courtney, Debbie, Birdie the dog and I took a hike around the wildflowers, mountains and river bends and documented their adorable and loving personalities.

Enjoy this warm, smiley Colorado session on this cold winter day!

{Wes & Franny’s Wedding at Woods Walk | KiKi Creates | Crested Butte, Colorado}

It’s suppose to snow all day in Crested Butte (fingers crossed) today. So I thought, why not post this winter wonderland wedding! Easily the most magical, snowy, stunning wedding I have had the chance to be apart of.

I woke up the morning of to -4 degrees. Coldest wedding I’ve ever photographed. While the girls were drinking champagne and getting ready, the guys took a couple hot laps on the mountain. I really couldn’t imagine anything more perfect to start your wedding day with.

We did a first look as it dumped snow on us and Franny and Wes’ adorable pup, Mr.Finn, joined dressed in bow tie and all. As they saw each other for the first time, Wes popped a bottle of champagne and they sipped straight from the bottle as we stood in the secluded woods while it snowed. It really was such a happy and beautiful moment.

They gave their guests the option to not attend the ceremony, since it was snowing outside and in 20 degree weather. Everyone still showed up, wrapped in jackets and sharing blankets they watched the two red nosed lovers say I do and kiss with Mount CB as their backdrop. Again, such a happy and beautiful moment.

We photographed everything outside, family photos, bridal party, everything. And not one person complained about the cold, even the girls that had sleeveless dresses were up for it! Such an amazing group of people to photograph and share memories with. The reception took place in a warm and cozy restaurant in town. With a fire in the background and whiskey and champagne flowing all night, we danced, took Polaroids, laughed at speeches, and ate some amazing elk! It was a super classy and beautiful day. But I’ll stop talking and let you just check it out yourself 🙂

Enjoy!

{Jenny May & Weston Wedding at Fort Macon | KiKi Creates | Beaufort, North Carolina}

Two thirds of Jenny and Weston’s relationship has been long distance. Jenny had an amazing opportunity to help others in need in Indonesia and moved there shortly after they started dating. And after many phone calls, face times, a 13 hour time difference, thousands of miles of distance and 14 months of being away from each other, they reunited at the Denver airport and spent 5 days in the Rocky Mountains together. On the Fifth day, Weston Proposed. It’s only fitting that their storybook love story was greeted by a storybook sunset on a secluded beach on their wedding day.

They were surrounded by friends and family on a windy day at the beach. As the sunset they said I do and shared a beautiful first kiss amongst their tearful guests. Following their ceremony we had an amazing sunset on a secluded beach where we frolicked around in the sand and salt.

Entering their reception under twinkle lights and ending it with a choreographed dance through sparklers was a wonderful start and end to the day. You can tell by all the smiles and happy tears that these two were truly loved not only by each other but by everyone Jenny&Weston_Bride+Groom_KiKiCreates-135
