KiKi Creates 2018 Best of Wedding Photographer in Colorado & Florida

So excited to get my best of 2018 up! Absolutely none of this blog post would be possible with out the many people that trusted KiKi Creates to photograph such amazing days in their life. From their friends and family at their weddings, to their pups at their engagement shoots, to all the amazing families I met. I could not put together such an amazing year without every single one of them. So if you’re reading, thank you. Thank you for continuing to enrich my life and my love for photography. I don’t know where I would be without it. 

I believe in life, although an unfortunate truth, the negative moments can be easy to fixate on. Whether it be personal or professional, we all of our ups and downs varying in emotion and degree. The beauty in photography, is that most of us choose to capture and document the happy and exciting moments. And I have always believed living your life through photos can give you a more realistic approach to what your day to day, small moments add up to. It can sometimes shed much needed light on how happy your life actually is. The past two days of culling through over 50,000 images and over 100 shoots has done just that for me. 

2018 held my first full year of managing two different locations and three different businesses. I spent this year focusing more on the quality of my work on the coasts of Florida and the many valley’s and mountain ranges in Colorado. I met not only one, but two little girls I get to call my niece.  I got to know my home state and my current state I call home much better and more beautifully. I had the chance to photograph under waterfalls, through tropical storms on the beach, in negative weather where the snow was falling and the fall colors of colorado that have me so entranced every year. I met as many animals as I did people and was introduced to new customs and traditions. Every year with new businesses, clients and now locations I gain more respect for the job and responsibilities I have. I become more indebted to the people that allow me to photograph moments that are so important to them and in turn shape importance for me. Thank you for an amazing 2018! 

Enjoy! KIKi

{ Ali & Mark’s Wedding at The Mountain Wedding Garden in Crested Butte, Colorado }

I am posting this summer wedding today! Maybe because it’s 10 degrees outside or maybe it’s because I love these two so much, but either way, it’s happening. 2018 was my first full year shooting wedding in the Rocky Mountains. It’s been an amazing experience with some amazing scenery and adventurous couples to boot! As I put my best of together over the next week I wanted to share one of my highlights, Ali & Mark’s wedding.
Their venue is a few minutes away from where I live and Ali was one of the first girls I became friends with out here. So I was a bit excited to photograph her and Mark’s wedding day. Ali is kind, sweet and goofy and was my date one night 5 years ago at a fancy couples dinner. Needless to say we had a good wine, or whoops, time..with some wine. 🙂 And have been friends ever since.
I met Mark one night when he cooked us some Pad Thai (My favorite) and spent a night watching him dote on Ali and stare at her non stop. It was super sweet and once I heard they were moving in together, we all knew they were bound to get married. So here they are, on their wedding day in all their happiness! Enjoy!

{Elizabeth&Paul | Day After Session at Emerald Lake | KiKi Creates | Crested Butte, Colorado}

I got to spend a whole weekend with these two! From the rehearsal dinner to the wedding to this awesome day after session. Elizabeth and Paul met me at Emerald Lake in CB and we romped around in their wedding attire. I may or may not have gotten them a bit muddy, but we still had such an amazing time with these adventurous two! Check out our awesome day after session below!

Enjoy!

{Cattlemens Queen | KiKi Creates |Crested Butte, Co}

A couple months ago I was contacted to put together a mini styled shoot. Heather, at Industry Hair Salon was interested in doing a shoot with the cattlemens queen. It embraced all those mountain, Colorado vibes and even included a dressing room in a barn, a beautiful horse with braids and the ever so graceful Cattlemens Queen. She is apart of the sixth generation of Spanns to live in the Gunnison Valley. And her family ranch is a beautiful property to walk around. Check out our moody sunset with these two!

Enjoy!

{Courtney&Raphael | Wedding at The Mountain Wedding Garden | KiKi Creates | Crested Butte, Colorado}

Let me start by saying, these two are a kick ass couple! They’ve lived in my two favorite places, Hawaii and Colorado. Courtney is a gorgeous read head. They have an adorable dog, in which they put a giant bow tie on. And to top it off, they hiked around on their wedding day even though Courtney was sportin’ a broken foot and a baby bump. It was just one of those days where I felt like I was hanging out with my friends all day. Even though we had just met. 🙂

The wildflowers were going off for their beautiful summer wedding at the Mountain Wedding Garden in CB. With a flower crown on and their pup in the back seat, we ventured around Gothic for some sweet portraits. It was a perfectly beautiful day! They have since moved back to Hawaii and are expecting their baby soon! They are going to be some seriously adventurous, fun loving parents. Congrats you two!
