Solstice Wedding

Ten years ago, their shared love of nature brought them to Rocky Mountain Biological Lab, right up the road from Crested Butte. Marie was working on her PhD research through the University of California, Davis, and Bryan was finishing his Bachelors degree from Humbolt State University. After a summer of doing research and hiking mountains together, they knew that they could not go on without each other. Almost exactly ten years later they were married under the sun and mountains on the Woods Walk at the noon bell of the solstice.

Thank you Marie and Bryan for including Third Eye Photography on your beautiful day! It was a pleasure and a joy!

Understanding the Common Expressions Your Photographer Uses

If you’ve recently started discussing a photoshoot with a photographer or you’re still on the hunt for the perfect photographer for your wedding, birthday or engagement shoot, you’ve more than likely come across several different terms and expressions that you’ve never heard of before.

To make you more comfortable during your conversations with your photographer, here are a few common expressions that you should familiarize yourself with:

  • 52211_2018.09.17_SEN_ElliotRaw Files.Raw files are photos that have not yet been processed. Most professional photographers only ever shoot RAW so that they can alter their photos later on. Most photographers will also be reluctant to give raw files to customers since it could result in their photos being altered by someone who isn’t familiar with editing processes and techniques.
  • Reprint Permissions. Sharing a photographer’s photos online or in the media will usually require reprint permission. This ensures that a photographer knows where their photos will be showcased, that they want to be associated with a particular platform or portrayed in a certain light.46558_2018.08.18_WED_Hutchinson
  • A copyright on photos means that they belong to the photographer that shot them and that the photographer can use them as they see fit. For example, they are allowed to use your photos in their portfolio. It also means that people or organizations are not allowed to use the photos in promotional materials without the photographer’s permission.
  • Golden Hour.The golden hour is a period of time around 15 – 20 minutes before sunrise and after sunset when your photographer has access to the best possible natural light. Most photographers will always opt to shoot during this period when possible.61815 2019.06.08_WED_Nicoll
  • Straight Out of the Camera.When photos are straight out of the camera, it means that they have been through very little editing and processing.
  • Suggested Shot List.This is usually a term that comes up a lot during discussions with wedding photographers. While planning your wedding, you will more than likely have a few ideas for photos that you really want your photographer to shoot, which is why they will usually ask you for a suggested shot list. If not, remember to speak up and tell your photographer your ideas.
  • Photography style is another term that will usually pop up during your conversation with your photographer. Some common photography styles include classic, lifestyle, documentary, and artistic. It may be useful to research a few of these photography styles before you meet with your photographer so that you can tell them what you expect.61832 2019.06.08_WED_Billesbach

Remember, your photographer is there to make this a fun and pleasant experience for you, not to throw technical terminology at you. If there are certain terms that you’re unsure about, ask away. Your photographer will be more than happy to explain the entire process to you.

Wilson Wedding June 15th

Stacey and Zach Wilson were married at Harmel Ranch in Almont CO June 15th 2019. It was a beautiful day- full of love, happiness and fury friends. The clouds threatened but a drop did not fall until everyone safely inside for dinner. A perfect day with only a few minutes of fear as Stacey and Zach’s car wheels spun on the off-road dirt on their way to their first spot of creative portraits. A moment of panic- would they bride and groom have to abandon their car on the top of a mountain? But alas, a small push from their photographer and the car was free- all dogs and humans were safe and could continue on their photographic journey. The day continued to be perfect, all members making it to the ceremony despite slight detours, the rains stayed away- the love was apparent throughout all the smiles and laughter well into the evening.

Thank you Stacey and Zach for including Third Eye Photography on your special day- it was a wonderful Saturday!

2019.06.08 Stephanie & Brian’s Wedding

Brian and Stephanie have a Christmas tradition: They exchange an ornament each year. And, after celebrating the past 8, this year’s tree was sweetly decorated with these precious ornaments! After they had opened all of the presents, Brian directed Stephanie to her last Christmas gift, hinting it was on the Christmas tree and had to do with “what we normally exchange” (an ornament)!

As soon as her eyes found what he had her looking for, she saw the handcrafted ring holster ornament holding a beautiful, sparkling ring! She knew exactly what this was and when she turned to him, he was down on one knee proposing! Tears of happiness filled in each of their eyes- of course she said yes!!!

Thank you for including Third Eye Photography in your amazing wedding day celebration. It was a day full of laughter, tears and pure love.

2019.06.08 Morgan and Ned’s Wedding

After 11 years of dating, Ned proposed to Morgan on Christmas morning 2017. As active snowboards, Ned bought Morgan a new pair of snowboarding pants and insisted she try them on. After slipping on the pants Ned said “I think there is something in the left pocket”. Morgan reached in and pulled out a box containing the ring. Ned got down on one knee and popped the question. Morgan was super shocked as a holiday proposal very unexpected. Now Morgan searches all the pockets of any attire from Ned.

Thanks for including Third Eye Photography in your amazing wedding day celebration! From the sunshine to the dance floor it was a day to remember!

49864_ 2018.09.02_WED_MikesellPhotography is a gift that lasts a lifetime

How many times have you received a gift that you pretended to like, only to end up storing it in the back of a cupboard a month later? Gadgets, clothing, and accessories all go out of style or become null and void, but professional photos last a lifetime and are something that the recipient can treasure for years to come.

38782_2018.04.26_DAN_WynesPhotography is personal

Gifting someone with a professional photo session is personal and unique. Since it’s far more thoughtful than guessing what someone would like to receive, it’s a gift that truly comes from a place of love.

2997_tep_2015.07.17_mat_krishanPhotography is an experience

Experiencing something instead of adding something to a growing pile of possessions is far more worthwhile, exciting and meaningful. A photo session gives your loved one a brand new experience that will leave them with lasting memories that they can proudly display around their home or office.

When looking for the right photo session for your loved one, keep an eye out for any specials photographers in your area might be offering. Who knows, you may even find yourself booking a photo session for yourself at the same time.
