Jamaican Vows

Cailey : December 7, 2016 5:24 pm : blog, Photos


I dream of wedding destinations. I’ve done several, but in Jamaica a wedding gig took me all the way to Negril, Jamaica. It was my first time in the country. I absolutely loved the scenery and the people. Sadly, I didn’t leave myself enough time to explore outside of the Negril resort area. However, some of the crafters I met on the beach were extremely friendly and forward. (My kind of people.) I made fast friends with a man named Whitey and another who went by Captain Ganja.

Mike and Janine were married at the Sandals Resort in Negril. It’s a beautiful resort with a larger campus than I was able to explore in my 4-short days. The happy couple planned an entire weekend of events for their guests, and it was fun to get to know everyone a bit before the wedding.

Minus one rain shower, the weather was perfect the entire weekend. Congrats again to Mike and Janine! Thank you for including me in your destination wedding! I hope to return soon.

Are you planning a destination wedding? Because I am always willing. Have camera, will travel!

Thanks for looking and enjoy!

Since September I’ve had the great privilege and honor to travel with The Colorado Health Foundation on their statewide listening tour. I’ve accompanied them on 5 tours, meeting people from roughly 40 Colorado counties. In two weeks, the tours pick up again, and we’ll head to the Plains. I’ve learned a lot about this great state I live in. About the geography, the struggles, the assets and most importantly the passion found in every town – regardless of size. I can’t wait to get back on the road and meet more people committed to promoting health in their communities! The goal of the Foundation is to be the healthiest state in the country – who wouldn’t want that?!

Thanks for looking!

All my best,

Newborn Photography

Cailey : January 19, 2016 12:41 pm : blog, Photos

My approach to newborn photography is a little different than the thousands of images you’d see on Pinterest. I do not prop babies up in unnatural positions. Nor do I use an excessive amount of props.

I photograph the baby, and parents, in their home. With a beloved stuffed animal, a handmade quilt and the crib passed down through generations.

While it’s not everyones’ cup of tea, the brave are rewarded for skipping the studio and artificiality that comes with it.

Please enjoy the images, and feel free to contact me for more information!

All my best,

Christmastime Proposal!

Cailey : January 11, 2016 2:52 pm : blog, Photos

Three weeks ago I had the great privilege to document a live proposal in Riverside Park, Salida! It was quite cold and dark. I waited around the park for 30 minutes, photographing Christmas trees in Holiday Park until I spied the couple. I had never met them, but I was sent a photo of the two from earlier in the day, so I knew what they were wearing.

Michelle and Matt, Texas college students, dated throughout high school. Michelles’ mom said, “I couldn’t have written a better man for my daughter.”

After Matt dropped to one knee, and Michelle gave a teary “yes,” I revealed myself from my hiding locale.

I snapped a few photos, with the flash on, then we went to the Boathouse Cantina for the receiving line of friends and family who were waiting to see the happy couple.

After a few photos with the family, we went back outside for more photos – without tears.

It was a lovely event, and I was extremely proud to be allowed present at such an important juncture in their lives!

Congrats again to Michelle and Matt!!

Thanks for looking, enjoy!

Mr. & Mrs. Winkler!

Cailey : January 11, 2016 11:39 am : blog, Photos

Texan couple Misty and Dustin decided on a Salida ceremony, next to the Arkansas River. They wanted it brief before they eloped to enjoy the mountains.

The always eccentric Forrest Whitman with Weddings Your Way performed the ceremony. Misty and Dustin had two friends, and their two children as witnesses.

It was a simple, beautiful ceremony. Everything they needed – nothing they did not.

The marriage license was signed at the nearby River’s Edge Restaurant.

Thanks for looking, and enjoy!

Mr. & Mrs. LaPointe!

Cailey : January 6, 2016 5:18 pm : blog, Photos

Christyn and Tim married at the Surf Chateau Hotel in Buena Vista Aug. 29 2015. Christyn decided she wanted to get married in South Main, Buena Vista months ago when she visited with family. The band she heard that night, The Haunted Windchimes, she hired to play their reception – on the same stage.

In addition to the beautiful day, that night was a Super Full Moon. What an evening to dance under the stars!

Many awesome Chaffee County vendors contributed to making this day awesome including: Settings Event Rental, Kalamatapit Catering, and Bash Cocktail Catering.

I hope you enjoy the photos!

Thanks for looking!!

Mr. & Mrs. Padilla!

Cailey : January 5, 2016 12:41 pm : blog, Photos

(Welp, I’ve been a bit distracted as of late.. but I’m back on track blogging from my weddings last year!)

Mario and Halie exchanged vows at the Salida SteamPlant Event Center Aug. 1. (Colorado Day!) Halie was a bridesmaid in a wedding I photographed at Old Cow Town in 2014. (How fun!)

Mario and Halie met in high school, and have been together ever since. Their friends and family spoke about how much they love and support each other. It was very evident. They also love to laugh and DANCE. (Two of my favorite things.)

Halie and her bridesmaids got ready at the ever-fabulous Palace Hotel in downtown Salida. The Angel of Shavano Car Show was also happening in the downtown area. Sadly most of the vintage cars left before the ceremony ended..

This wedding was full of everything you’d want, and nothing you wouldn’t. The venues were gorgeous, the bride and groom glowed with joy and the dance floor was packed all night!

I could’ve posted nearly every photo from this wedding, it was so hard to trim it down!!

Additional vendors included: Rancho Verde Flowers and Sweet Cheeks Bakery.

Thanks for looking, enjoy the photos!

#HealthiestCO Listening Tour

Cailey : October 18, 2015 4:59 pm : blog

I was chosen for a wonderful opportunity last week to accompany the new president of The Colorado Health Foundation around the Mountain region of Colorado. We visited 9 cities in 8 counties in 3 days. The #HealthiestCO Statewide Listening Tour was the brain child of Karen McNeil-Miller, who wanted to meet the people in each county to get a better understanding of their health needs. Put faces to her statistics and data. We drove about 600 miles and met passionate people, listened to their experiences and stories. Everyone was eager to improve the health of their communities. It was a pretty neat experience.

Here are a few of my favorites from our travels. Enjoy!

Mr. & Mrs. McAsey!

Cailey : September 30, 2015 1:30 pm : blog, Photos

Chad and Michelle McAsey had a small, intimate ceremony at Mt. Princeton Hot Springs Resort in July. The ceremony was full of love, laughter and giggles. Their two girls had quite the giggle fit mid-ceremony (which I quite enjoyed). Their giggles were infectious and got most of those in attendance to laugh – including the bride and groom.

The ceremony was officiated by Forrest Whitman with Weddings Your Way.

Thanks for looking — enjoy!

Mr. & Mrs. Porzio!

Cailey : September 10, 2015 10:35 am : blog, Photos

I spent the entire day with Mike and Erin on their wedding day in July. We really got to know one another. They are young, sweet, passionate and fun! I giggled often with these two. I loved hearing their friends and family praise them separately and as a pair. These two have staying power. Congratulations Erin and Mike!!

Per usual a fleet of fantastic Chaffee County vendors made this wedding possible: Rancho Verde Flowers, Settings Event RentalKalamatapit CateringSouth Main and Buena Vista Heritage.

Thanks for looking, enjoy!
