When it comes to Colorado weddings, she loves the uniqueness of every venue and the style that each one offers her couples. Taking the stress out of the actual wedding day is her speciality because she enjoys watching the bride and groom find some relaxing moments in their day.
John is our go-to photographer + we enjoy seeing him at over half of our weddings! John owns Moodyography and it's no secret that he is extremely talented at wedding photography. As he says, "I am passionately committed to one thing, and one thing only… Weddings!! And more specifically, capturing the story of your day. I’m an artistic photographer who focuses on the unique moments and beauty that will only ever exist on your wedding day. I’m not focused on following the latest trends, and I don’t use presets or filters, because I genuinely want every one of your wedding photos to reflect the true experience of the best day of your life."
