- Photography Facts
Ask Garrett Hacking where he likes shooting when not doing wedding photography in Denver and he immediately responds with "the mountains." That is after all why he packed his bags, moved to Colorado and started his career here nearly 14 years ago after humble beginnings in Minnesota. Which brings us to one his favorite mountain venues, Wild Basin Lodge, between Estes Park and Allenspark along the lovely Peak to Peak Highway. He should know beautiful locales as he is also sought for his Colorado landscape photography. "It all begins with the owners, Denice and Nils," Garrett says. "They did time in Minnesota and if you know what folks from the land of 10.000 lakes are known for, it is work ethic and 'Minnesota nice.' You betcha!" These are qualities the Minnesota boy, now known more for his photography in Denver, has possessed from the get-go. And these are qualities that Denice and Nils look for or impart on their staff. And in all their vendors. "I think that is why we hit it off from day one and have collaborated on some of the most successful weddings in our combined histories. Clients love the down home family feel of the Lodge and the amazing grounds as well as that "you are family" feel they get from the staff from all levels. My personality fits in seamlessly and my storytelling style captures that feeling and all the emotions of the day in timeless photographic art to be enjoyed more with each viewing as years go by. I am grateful for my relationship with Wild Basin because they always stress the value of my work as being the lasting impression of the day, the value of which continues to appreciate with each passing year. You will never go wrong choosing the Basin for your wedding celebration!"
In my opinion, there is no better month, and no better place to be in Colorado, or anywhere for that matter, than Steamboat Springs in September. And what more perfect time and place to have a wedding! While I love doing photography in Denver, I relish the opportunity to take a little break from my wedding photography in Denver and get away to my favorite wedding mountain destinations of which I consider Steamboat Mountain to be among the finest. This lucky couple had a day that was absolutely perfect in every way. Light, the first thing I look for, great temperatures, no wind and Fall colors going wild. I even took some extra time to indulge my love for Colorado landscape photography the next day. The first rate staff at Steamboat Resorts, location, amenities and the surrounding community make this venue a top recommendation from this wedding professional who has seen plenty of venues in Colorado and around the world.
