Shannon + Luke @ Wellshire Inn- Colorado wedding photographer


Shannon and Luke’s wedding was pretty special. We did two first looks- one with the traditional Korean hanbok, and the next was more western traditional. Both were absolutely gorgeous! Their wedding was an awesome mix friends and families from Korean and Chinese cultures that all gathered to celebrate Shannon and Luke’s love for each other. As fun and exciting as the day was, there was a feeling of sadness as well. Unfortunately, three weeks prior to the wedding Shannon’s father passed away. When I first learned of this I was heart broken. I knew this unexpected loss was going to be hard on her and her family. As sad as this was, she was determined to have a fun and loving celebration. She brought along one of her favorite photos of her dad, and I wanted to make sure to capture a portrait that displayed their father-daughter love. Her dad was with us that day, just not in physical form. It was one of the most powerful moments that I’ve had the honor in photographing. I’m so thankful for my clients’ trust in me to deliver them something as special as this.
