We all know that wedding photos are an irreplaceable part of your special day. Photos help us to look back on the day for years to come and reflect on the complete true love story. Every now and again some stories are truly remarkable and leave you breathless! These photos I have pulled together are from some of our past weddings and all I can say is, WOW! The artistry from these photographers are unbelievable.

A note from Benjamin with Alive Studios...


Alive Studios initially met Beth and Jake at a wedding show held at
Lionscrest Manor, where they eventually choose to have the wedding.  From
the moment we met the couple, I knew working with them would be amazing.  We
choose an old abandon train yard for their engagement shoot, which turned
out to be perfect.  Beth's red hair  and the fall colors worked wonderfully,
and Jake seemed totally at home amongst the ancient trains.  It was during
this initial shoot that we started to see the magic love between Jake and
Beth.  One of two of the images made it directly to our portfolio.



Early spring storms threatened Beth's desire for an outdoor ceremony, and

Jake even volunteered to help Lionscrest Manor clear the snow if possible.  But

that wasn't necessary, as mother nature blessed the couple with a beautiful
weekend in-between two massive storms.  A sixty degree day with light winds
and beautiful sun allowed us to be outside for all of the photos, as well as
the ceremony.  Working at Lionscrest in the spring is such a delight, and as
you can see from the photos, Beth and Jake were feeling it for sure.  An
amazing ceremony with wonderful people supporting them, perfect weather, and
love everywhere!  Later, up on the bluff above the Manor, Beth and Jake
celebrated their first few moments of being married while capturing a number

of exquisite photos as the sun slid down behind the mountains.


Back inside for a totally rocking party, amazing food, and excellent music.

Alive Studios thoroughly enjoyed the details which Beth obviously though
about; from amazing color coordination and decorations to unique touches of
class.  A truly excellent wedding all around, and the beginning of a
wonderful life of marriage for Beth and Jake!
