The Aspen Mountain Wedding of Sam Bradford and Emma Lavy is still one of my all-time favorites! Not only is the couple so so cool (and gorgeous), but the mountain top wedding venue is totally out of a magazine! My wife is an OU alumnus and a HUGE OU football fan, so she loves that I photographed the Heisman-winning quarterback’s wedding.
While I’d previously photographed weddings in Colorado and Engagement Photos in Aspen, this was my first Aspen Mountain Wedding. I pray it won’t be my last because I felt so inspired throughout the day because of the natural beauty surrounding me.
Emma is a perfect Benny Bride. She has a kind heart, style, great taste, an adoring family, and appreciates photography. I love when a bride appreciates the importance of having a world-class photographer capture her wedding day. I was honored to be a part of something so special.
This emotional first look gets me every time I look at it. What a special moment on top of Aspen Mountain to kick off the wedding celebration.
Y’all. This view. Oh, my word. It’s just about as beautiful of a wedding backdrop ever created. The Little Nell is an amazing venue, and Aspen Mountain looks like heaven.
As sunset hit, I knew I wanted to take the bride and groom out for some more wedding portraits. I’m so happy I did!
The shot below is one of my all-time favorite wedding portraits. It’s everything. I was honored when I saw that ESPN had used this shot shortly after the wedding day.
And this fun bridesmaid picture is full of style and attitude. I think most sisters would love to have a photo like this. Right?
After a great party, the couple left the reception through two lines of sparklers as they ascended down Aspen Mountain to begin their new life together as husband and wife. Congratulations on a beautiful wedding Emma and Sam Bradford!
