2016 Ashley McKenzie Photography

Wedding Highlights

Wow!  What an absolutely amazing year 2016 was.  I am a little late on publishing this post, but none the less excited to share some of my favorite Colorado Wedding Photos from 2016.  When couples choose me as their wedding photographer, it is truly an honor and so much more than a paycheck to me.  I never grow tired of photographing the love and excitement two people share in beginning their marriage.  It warms my heart to look back on all of these beautiful memories.  So, I'd like to start by saying THANK YOU to all of the couples I have had the privilege of working with in the past year.  You make my job feel important, meaningful, and FUN.

There is not a single place I visited last year that I wasn't excited about.  Colorado is truly a unique and very special place to live and dream.  I traveled ALL OVER Colorado this year for weddings and I truly would not have it any other way!  It is a wonderful thing to work in summer mountain meadows filled with wild flowers, and travel along the highest roads to use surrounding mountain peaks as a backdrop.  I cannot wait to do it again this year!  I am so looking forward to all of the plans in store for me, and the AMAZING couples I get to work with!

I just wanted to send a huge shout out to all of the vendors who work so hard to help make wedding dreams come true, and the families who support them.
