Shove Chapel | Colorado Springs Wedding Photographer

Shove Chapel, Colorado Springs Wedding Photographer

Christian and Sarah met in a Starbucks.  Haha…Sarah took one last order for the day before finishing up her shift.  And it was Christians.  He was trying to get up the nerve to ask for her number and then saw her leave.   But then a few minutes later Sarah ran back in because she forgot something…Christian didn’t miss his opportunity and asked for her number.  You guys…tell me that is not straight out of a movie!!!   Just a really beautiful cute meet story if I ever heard of one.

Fast forward a few years later and I’m watching two people who absolutely without a doubt complete the other.  Yes, its true.  I loved how incredibly grateful the other seemed of the other.  You could tell what a gift they thought the other was for them.  Beautiful to watch and witness these two share their vows.

What an incredible place to have their wedding ceremony.  if you have the chance you absolutely need to visit Shove Chapel.  Its located in Colorado Springs right in the middle of the city.  Its breathtaking!  The big tall stain glass windows and gorgeous vaulted ceilings…it simply took my breath away.  I will say that Shove Chapel is absolutely one of the darkest places I’ve had to shoot though.  I adored getting to challenge my full light style and embraced shadows and pockets of lights.  For me this wedding will always be one of my favorites for that reason.  What a great start to my wedding season!  At the end of this post will be all the amazing vendors that helped make this beautiful day possible for Sarah and Christian.  Definitely a dream team to work with!

    I just wanted to express my gratitude for the wonderful job you and your team did for our families. I was already highly impressed by the quality of their engagement photos, but you truly showed your matchless skills in the work done of the wedding. My niece is a lady of grace and beauty, both inwardly as well as outwardly. You captured her tenderness of heart and the kindness in her eyes as well as the obvious adoration they have for each other. Not only are the photos quite extraordinary, but your professionalism is of the utmost caliber. You were present yet not seen…moving in for that perfectly timed shot and slipping into the shadows. We all knew you were there, at the wedding, at the reception, the getaway moments, and those personal precious seconds that mean so much, yet never in the way, never a feature or focus, just a whisper of a secret. It was a blessing to meet you and your work is a treasured gift. I pray blessings for you and your business. Again, thank you very much!
