Janel & Steve Highlight Slideshow

By Jennifer Marlowe Marvin in denver wedding photography

When I reached the top of Durango mountain and stepped out of the car, the fresh tangy air was the first thing I noticed.  As I walked closer to the downhill slop of the snowless ski mountain I breathed in deeply trying to remember the way this moment looked, felt, smelled, and tasted.  My goal for that day was to capture on my digital sensor the essence of what I was feeling while standing there on that beautiful mountain.  This was the final product.  Janel & Steve were married last month on the top of Durango mountain and were surrounded by friends and family who celebrated with them long into the night.

Dave & Stacie {August 4, 2012}

Dave and Stacie got married this past Saturday at the beautiful Inn at Keystone. The weather could not have been more perfect.  It was partly cloudy which allowed for some beautiful mountain photos and the temperature was stellar.  Photographing this wedding was very enjoyable and the night flew by.  Great music, wonderful people, and a beautiful venue made their wedding unforgettable. 


Dave & Stacie actually worked together for several years.  After 4 years of knowing each other, it was easy to transition to a romantic relationship. For Stacie, she new they were meant for each other after the first week of dating.

After that first week, she went back to Wisconsin for a fishing weekend with her dad.  She thought about Dave that entire weekend and was excited to go back to Chicago to spend more time together.  The day she got back, they played tennis, cooked the fish she caught over the weekend and were able to get to know each other even more.  Everything just clicked!

And, over the past few years Stacie's learned quite a bit from Dave about cooking as well :)  They also added their love of cooking into the wedding by giving each guest a wooden cooking spoon and their two favorite recipes.  Kinda brilliant huh?!

Congratulations Stacie & Dave!  Enjoy Kauai!!


Kelsey & Tyler

I must say before anything else, that this couple TOTALLY saved a shoot that I was photographing.  I was not organizing it, and the person in charge had just decided not to hire any models for photoshoot the next day...  In comes, Kelsey and Tyler to save the day!  We have a mutual friend who got me in contact with them and last minute they packed their bags and drove 4 hours north to be part of the photoshoot.  As a thank you to them, they stayed the night with me in Pismo Beach and I took some photos of them together so they could have a few memories together.  I'll be able to post the Fashion shoot at a later date, but until then here are a few of my favorites.



This one was for my hubby :)

Janel & Steve {July 28th, 2012}

I have been traveling so much recently (so yes, I am WAY behind on my blogging!) and one of my adventures to took me the top of Durango Mountain Resort to photograph the wedding day of two incredible people, Steve Ollason & Janel Kinney.  Steve and Janel met in 2007 while they were studying Biology at the University of New Mexico. Through the years, they've vacationed in Durango many time and consider it one of their "happy places".  That's exactly why it was perfect for their wedding venue.


The wedding day started off with a calming dewy drizzle and we were all praying for a clear afternoon considering the wedding was outdoors. Prayers were answered because by the time the Bride and Groom reached Dante's Peak it was a beautiful, clear afternoon!


Your ceremony was stunning, reception a ton of fun and I almost forgot to mention that you all have some AWESOME dancers in your family :)

Congratulations and I wish you two the best!
