I met Emily & Joel at their new home which they bought a little less than a year ago in the mountains just passed Jamestown. They showed me around their property and the nearby community trails that wandered in and out of meadows with views of the mountain range off in the distance.
Their dog Parker tagged along with us, making a few guest appearances in the photographs. It was so peaceful. I’m so excited that these two found a house and piece of property that they can call their own.
It suits them completely. Joel works as an arborist and Emily with an outdoor camp for kids. They both love to be in the mountains, fishing, paddleboarding, etc. So this was a great find for them. We climbed an outcropping of rocks to take some images on top looking out over the mountains and trees behind their property. They told me they sometimes have dinner up there. I can see why, what an amazing place!
It was so cool to get a sneak peak into their lives and their home. They got engaged on a fishing trip out by Crested Butte in their tear drop trailer that they made together. So of course we had to take photos of them with the trailer!
They’re sorting out the finishing touches of their wedding which they’ve decided to do on their property. Joel has done some beautiful woodwork, creating a table and some signs from a tree they fell from their land. Emily finished the signs with a chalkboard paint and white chalk markers creating way finding messages so their family from out of town doesn’t get lost during the wedding.
Emily & Joel, I’m so excited to come back to your place soon to shoot your wedding! It’s so fun to see what you two have created. Your place is going to be beautifully transformed to celebrate with your friends and family. Its so fitting for you two. See you guys soon!
