Garden of the Gods Club Wedding

A sunset portrait of the bride and groom on their wedding day at the Garden of the Gods Club and Resort in Colorado Springs. This romantic and chic wedding, designed by A Vintage Affair, had beautiful views of the red rocks at Garden of the Gods and of the Rocky Mountains. The sun set behind Elizabeth and Steve as I posed them on a white couch out in the middle of the lawn. She snuggled up with Steve as he embraced her and then happened to look up at him adoringly. This image gives a feeling of love, warmth and security. I chose this time of day because toasts were finished, the sun was setting and there was a lull in the reception action. The late summer sun creates beautiful golden sunsets. I always want my couples to just be in the moment as opposed to feeling like they are models at a shoot. Of course I pose them, but then they end up doing their own thing which is what creates those intimate moments. The Garden of the Gods Club and Resort is a wonderful venue that allows guests to stay at the property, thus ensuring a fun, safe time. Colorado Springs has many popular wedding venues that are sure to be a great fit for any couple getting married. For this image, I used my Nikon D750 and 85mm F/1.4 lens.
