I love photographing weddings at the River Bend, in Lyons, Colorado. It features beautiful outdoor scenery that includes large boulders alongside a river. It allows me to get some fun moments of people hanging out in nature. I met Zeena and the ladies at their tent as they were getting ready for theier wedding. The tent was small and dark so it’s always difficult to get good photos inside, but I was patient and able to get some good moments. Their were lots of little kids at this wedding which I always love to get photos of them because they are usually oblivious to the camera. The last time I had photographed at this venue, it had rained the previous day, so the dance floor was flooded with water. This time, the area was dry, so it was easier to move around and get some different angles of the dances that took place. There wasn’t much dancing after the traditional first dances, but that just allowed me to explore the whole venue and get fun moments of the guests mingling with each other. I always have a good time at this venue because I get to play in nature and have the space to get some creative shots.
