Summer Sapphire Point Wedding on 35mm Film | Eva + Juliano

Posted On | August 31, 2023

I’m not going to lie, I cry a lot at weddings. But I’m pretty sure I set a record for the number of tears shed on Eva and Juliano’s wedding day!
E&J started out as best friends in high school. Juliano caught feels pretty quick, but he knew he was playing the long game. As Eva tells it, “we started to hang out together everyday and slowly he worked away at my heartstrings putting in 100% effort and was open and honest about his feelings and what he was interested in. Finally I gave in and started to have feelings back for him. And 8 years later, the rest is history!”
Meeting them in person the day of their wedding felt like showing up at a family reunion. Everyone there was so tight-knit and excited to finally be celebrating E&J’s love!
After sharing a tearful first look, we caravanned to their ceremony. Ensuring Eva’s vision of a fairytale, chipmunks and low-flying birds made their appearance as they shared their vows in front of their loved ones at Sapphire Point Overlook.
To celebrate, we headed up to the top of Loveland Pass where our juvenile sense of humor came out to play. Will I ever see the Loveland Pass sign in the same light? Definitely not.
After exploring on our own for a bit, we met back up with their loved ones for the cutest reception at Bread Bar. Eva + Juliano were loved on with toast after heartfelt toast before spending the rest of the night dancing under the stars.
E&J’s wedding day was a testament to how much love can grow, and watching Juliano finally “get the girl” for keeps had everyone in tears. It truly was the best day. I am so stoked to share just a tiny sliver of my favorites from their day on both film and digital!
Congrats, Eva and Juliano!

I found We the Light on Instagram, being from NY, we wanted to have a small and intimate wedding in CO. From the start we wanted it to feel like a family gathering, relaxing, low pressure, and breathtaking! Right from the bat, Bailey was extremely helpful in helping us pick our locations, sending us recommendations and even helping reserve our national park pass when the .gov website crashed!

Initially I fell in love with how light, airy and natural their photos were. But then I was instantly sold once we got on the phone with Bailey. She is SO bubbly, so kind and sweet and every email we received was the exact same, continuously got us excited all over again for our big day and made us feel like she was another close friend attending our day – not just a photographer.

On our wedding day, she got both of us tearing up. Giving us small moments to ground ourselves, prompts to reflect on our relationship and how we got here, filled with memories. We both cried of course and then Bailey teared up, which of course was funny and we laughed about but shows how much she cares about her couples. She doesnt just show up on your big day take a few photos and then leave. Shes emotionally there, and supportive and fits in SO well with your group – whether its 2 or 30.

Our photos came out perfect, everything we could of dreamed of. Watching Bailey maneuver through the by herself switching cameras from film to her usual camera. Getting all the angles, and scenery, was so effortless, she practically glided around.

Even after our wedding we got SO many compliments on how fantastic our photographer was. We knew she was amazing, but hearing from our guests how much they liked her, how sweet she was, how they were amazed in her skill to get all the shots she did.

I love looking at our photos and never get tired of them. Honestly I have NEVER seen a wedding photographer be able to get the creative artistically beautiful shots that they are capable of getting. They look like nothing I have ever seen before and makes our wedding day feel so original and authentic.

I could not recommend We The Light more….I will 100% be flying back to Colorado for any photos we need, whether it be maternity, family, anniversary. Anything to work with Bailey again because she is top of her class!
