So I'm going to give you guys a little secret…. if you hire me as your photographer I have a Personal Google Map doc that has a bunch of different locations for all different kinds of Adventures that we could go on together! But it's an AMW insider thing, so you have to hire me in order to access it!
Take time to do the paperwork!

Get your hair and makeup done, you'll thank me later!

He can see it every day but I want to make sure that you see it on your wedding day too!

So no hanging off cliffs with ropes if you've never been on rope before but if you feel more at home on the side of the wall let's do it! I'm up for it! We gotta make it an adventure we can all have fun doing together!
Drink a ton of water!
We’re in Colorado so that means we're a little bit higher than we are in most places so none of us going to be having fun if you get altitude sickness. So let's make sure everyone drinks a bunch of water before, during, and after your elopement so no one feels sick.
