We absolutely love our photos! Beau and Reese shot both our engagement photos and our wedding photos and they turned out to be exactly what we wanted! They made us so comfortable and most of the time we couldn't even tell they were there! Beau hiked through the snow with us for our engagement photos and did a truly amazing job. We'll have those photos hanging in our home for a lifetime. Reese was amazing at the wedding! He made sure to get all of the "typical" wedding shots but also made sure to get a lot of the fun type of photos of our family and friends. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a wedding photographer!!!
Our wedding pictures were exactly what we were hoping for! Heartwarming candids that showed off our cooky personalities and the crazy festive atmosphere. Working with Beau was a breeze! He even took time a few days before our wedding to walk around to the venue with us to find cool locations for the Bride & Groom Portraits. His suggestions were great and he really listened to our crazy ideas. He really understood our creative vision and was able to work with unpredictable lighting. He was very flexible and was able to capture such amazing little moments. He experimented with fun angles, framing and depth perception. Couldn't be happier. I'd work with Beau again in a heartbeat!
Your wedding day doesn't last forever, but wedding photos do, so in my opinion they are the most important part of the wedding (besides saying I do). Beau is the guy for the job, he was very attentive, respectful and mindful of my vision, and he took the most amazing photos I get to cherish forever. He did both our Engagement and Wedding day photos, and always put our needs before his own. We got so many great looks in many beautiful locations, I would have never thought to take myself. Beau is truly a hard worker, he got our photos back to us within a few weeks and even worked on them to give each one a desaturated romantic feel I wanted.He goes above and beyond to make his clients dreams come true, so you know you can trust him with your wedding day photos. Thank you so much! Sam & Jake 2.9.18
I really cannot recommend Blue Spruce Photography enough! Beau really goes above and beyond to make sure everything is exactly how you want it on your wedding day- he looked at my Pinterest board to get a sense of what photos I want, came to our rehearsal to meet family, and met with us before our wedding day to scout out good spots for photos at our venue. He is a true artist and captured our wedding day perfectly, with a great mix of candid photos and portrait shots. We now have a beautiful album filled with LOTS of photos to remember our day by. Choosing your photographer is one of the most important decisions you'll make in the wedding planning process- it's how you'll remember your day forever!- and you can't go wrong with Blue Spruce Photography!
Beau did a fantastic job with our November wedding! I was so nervous after meeting with several other photographers, but Beau was always very communicative, meeting at the venue a few weeks early to scope out ideal shots and help create a wedding day timeline for family photos. He even went above and beyond to put my wedding dress in a tree for forest photos! I cannot express enough how reassuring I found it to have this aspect of the day handled with expert care. Thank you Beau for all of your hard work!
Beau is fantastic!!! My husband and I were married at the Wedgewood on Boulder Creek last October. He was incredibly responsive and easy to work with from our first email to our wedding day. Not only was he extremely organized in his communication with us leading up to our day, he was also great at directing our families when it was time for photos with them. He was so professional and made the process of getting all the post-ceremony photos (I have a huge family) a breeze. He gave really clear direction in regards to poses and knew exactly how to capture the best photos of us at our venue. Beau also gets extra kudos for braving the snow with us. He did an amazing job capturing us outside for the first look and the post-ceremony pics. We could not be happier with how the photos turned out! Book Beau right now for your big day!
Beau did a really great job of capturing some of the best moments from our wedding day! He also gave us back our pictures SO QUICK! One of my girlfriends that got married had to wait months for even a preview and we received way more pictures than we ever could've imagined so quickly!
Beau did an outstanding job with our pictures! His energy was great and it's very clear he's passionate about photography. He was very easy to work with and organized. When the weather didn't cooperate for us, he was able to improvise quickly. He captured the very essence of our wedding and family!
Beau was very communicative. He did a great job capturing unique, in the moment photos during our wedding.
He is simply the best.. I used to be a part time model so I have experience shooting with lots of photographer and he truly is the best. he is also easy going, VERY professional and very passionate at what he does. He is ALWAYS on time and goes above and beyond to make beautiful pictures. I got my preview photos and I am beyond impressed so are the rest of the people. he makes art but at the same time, captures every important things and lots of emotions. Highly recommended!
Wonderful Experience! Working with Beau was absolutely perfect. He was honest, communicative, and our pictures are amazing. He went out of his way to meet us at the venue for a walk through and made plans prior to the wedding for the timeline of the day so that everything would be seamless. We even had a preview a couple days after the wedding. Very impressed! Would recommend to anyone. We have had so many compliments on our wedding photographs!
I met the guys at Blue Spruce at a wedding show in Denver. After interviewing 3 potential photographers, Beau and Luke were really an amazing team and we are so glad we chose to go with them. We knew we had chosen the right photographer when we got our engagement pictures back! He took us to several different venues to get the best shots and they turned out excellent! On our wedding day, Beau and Luke were very accommodating to what we wanted our day to look like and we hardly even knew they were there. They captured great shots on their own but were always helping us capture shots that were important to us too! Our wedding photos turned out so amazing and we could not have been happier with them or the service that Beau and Luke provided us in those days! Beau has such an eye and talent for photography and creating awesome shots! We will definitely be recommending him to anyone we know needing a great photographer to capture their biggest moments!
I am so in love with all of my wedding photos!!! They are AMAZING! There are so many photographers out there I was so lost, so I asked my friends who they used, and my MOH had used Blue Spruce at her wedding. They have one of the quickest turn arounds of photos I've heard from anyone. I had a large preview in less than 2 weeks! (A bit faster than what my friend got of about 3 weeks with them, which is way faster than average of 6-8 weeks.) They also were reasonably priced, and worked with us to make a package that fit our budget. Reese was our photographer and he did such a great job. Living out of state I wasn't able to meet in person before the wedding and was a little nervous about meeting the day of, but I was instantly good as he was there in the background as we were getting ready for the big day. Both Beau and Reese are great about being there to get the shots without being in the way or obnoxious. This was important to me after being at a wedding and having my view eclipsed constantly by the photographer. I also am super impressed by their ability to capture dance shots at our venue which was very low light for the dances.
When you're planning your wedding, the photography is such a huge component of it. I cannot say how grateful we are that Beau was able to join us to capture our big day! His work is natural and effortlessly translates those lovely little moments of the day that I know I'll be able to look back at and remember the rest of my life. He infused the landscape surrounding our venue in every shot and the light that day was stunning. We are beyond happy with the images we have now and will cherish them forever. Our wedding officially started our journey together and soon we'll make a family of our own. I cannot wait to show our children these pictures. They'll be able to see how much fun we had that day and how surrounded in love it was. If you need someone that's able to give you images that you put you right back in those moments, I highly recommend Beau.
Beau was awesome! He did a great job for both engagement and wedding photos, gave a very reasonable pricing and offered to make additional editing after the wedding! I will definitely recommend him to my family and friends! Thank you Beau!
Beau at Blue Spruce did a great job at our wedding! I would highly recommend for other couples looking to get both traditional, and creative/fun shots for their wedding weekend.
My husband and I are so thankful we found Beau to be our wedding photographer. Throughout the whole process Beau was easy and prompt to communicate with. Not only did Beau take great pictures of us, but he captured all the fun our family and friends had during our big day. Plus we got our pictures back 3 weeks after the wedding. Thanks Beau for helping us make this day so memorable!
I was so impressed with Beau throughout the entire process! He was so patient with us and helped us with ideas while taking the time to really get to know us. He took amazing photos without any interruption to the day. He was so accommodating with our families, our budget, and our timeline. He was very organized throughout the entire planning process. He made us feel comfortable and it shows in the photos! We had a beautiful venue that was particularly difficult to photograph and he did a stunning job! I cannot recommend him highly enough!!
Beau was extremely professional and knowledgeable and captured many beautiful images of our wedding at Flying Horse Ranch. Beau came and scouted out the best places to get creative shots incorpating the venue and listened to our ideas of a first look and what our vision was for our special day. He was flexible with ideas when the rain started and caught many in the moment photos that were genuine and captured the fun of that day. He was affordable in regards to price and got pictures back fast. Thank you so much Blue Spruce Photography for making our day so special!!
Great to work with! Very professional and beautiful photos.
AMAZING! Beau with Blue Spruce Photography exceeded ALL of my expectations for my wedding photos. He is so professional and easy to work with... I can get pretty awkward in front of the camera but Beau is wonderful at providing instructions and keeping people focused. He went above and beyond to create a comfortable and fun atmosphere for my husband and me. Our guests are STILL raving about how wonderful Beau was and how much fun they had with him! We just recently received our pictures and they are beyond stunning. People are blown away by the artistry and all the off the cuff, fun moments captured throughout the weekend. Beau took some amazing and creative shots all weekend long and I am having a blast reliving these moments all over again. We are so grateful to have these memories to cherish forever. Thanks Beau!
I can't say enough wonderful things about Beau! He shot both our engagement photos and wedding photos and they all turned out stunning. He is professional, kind, creative and, not to mention, insanely talented! I was blown away by the quality and beauty of the photos he captured. I feel like every moment of our special day was captured beautifully and honestly and will be the most amazing reminders for years to come
Beau was so wonderful, from the initial phone conversation, to scouting the venue, Beau was super organized and prepared. He was equally wonderful during our wedding, arriving early and capturing all of our favorite moments. Would highly recommend to anyone!!
Beau does such amazing work, our wedding photos came out beautifully! Our goal was to find a photographer who was experienced with adjusting to the light of our venue which was an older home with lots of wood tones. We didn't want everyone to turn out yellow! Beau reassured us that he had extensive experience in all sorts of lighting and he did not disappoint! Our wedding photos came out clear as day, capturing every key moment of the ceremony and reception! It is like we are reliving the moment through photos now! What really amazed me was how stealthy he was. Besides when we needed him for a requested photo with so-and-so guest, Beau blended into my party and I had no idea when we were being photographed! This was exactly what I was hoping for to capture the most real and candid moments that could not be recreated with being aware of him doing his work. The turnaround for the release of photos was also very prompt. I was provided a first-look a day after my wedding and the whole album was released to me within 3 weeks. It was amazing to me how fast he worked!! I highly recommend Beau!
Beau is wonderful! Doesn't hold back to make sure he gets the best shot and has great energy. We used his service as a referral from a friend and it was so much better than doing the research for someone that felt at random. We had Beau take our engagement and wedding photos. He's timely to get them back and has offered to make any lighting or filter request (black and white, etc). He scouted the first look location, church and venue as a way to prepare for the big day, that's great service - thank you so much Beau, we really enjoyed working with you!!
Beau was wonderful as our wedding photographer! We loved his photos, and when we met him, we were immediately impressed by his professionalism and expertise. He was very easy to work with. He helped us get some great pictures and he had some terrific ideas for the portraits. Then when it came to the ceremony and reception, he was really unobtrusive, just documenting the night in a really lovely way. We are so thrilled with the pictures. We got lovely portraits and such wonderful photos of our family and friends, from incredibly touching moments to really hilarious and silly ones! He did a great job and we definitely recommend Blue Spruce Photography!
Through the entire process Beau was amazing. He helped make the engagement shoot fun, even in the rain. The photos from the wedding were gorgeous. He was very professional, from showing up early to learning everyone's names. We would highly recommend him to anyone.
Beau was amazing!! He went above and beyond to capture our day. It is easy to see that he really cares about his work and his clients. Our pictures turned out great. He responds to e-mails in a timely manner (not the case with all photographers). I would definitely recommend Beau to any bride.
Beau was excellent before, during and after our wedding. He was great at communicating with us before the wedding, even though we had major time differences because my husband and I were in Korea at the time. He was very accommodating during our engagement shoot and made us feel really comfortable. On the wedding day he made sure to get the shots we wanted and took lots of great candid shots too. He got a preview of our photos to us two days after the wedding and the full set two weeks later. Very efficient, professional, and a great artist. We couldn't be more satisfied.
Beau is incredible! We had such a fun time with him and our pictures are amazing. From our engagement pictures to wedding!!! We got all of our pictures so fast and he let's you do whatever with your photos and gives you all the rights. He captured us so well and made it so fun but also getting the coolest pictures.
We highly recommend Blue Spruce Photography! We hope to work with Beau again in the future, and we are so thankful for the exceptional and professional photography we experienced. Beau and Blue Spruce Photography were an absolute pleasure to work with from the very beginning. At the start of our wedding planning, I was finishing grad school and a clinical rotation out of state. Beau agreed to a Skype meeting to chat about our interests and desires for our wedding photography. From that initial conversation, my fiance and I felt very comfortable and confident moving forward. His individualized approach, reasonable pricing, excellent portfolio of wedding pictures, photo turnaround time of ~3 weeks, and willingness to give us the rights to our pictures without additional "hidden" fees were huge selling points. Beau was very timely in corresponding with us and establishing all of the needed details prior to our big day. He set up a Pinterest page for us to add photos and make our list of "must have" pictures, so he could get an even more personalized idea of what we wanted. He checked in via email and met us for coffee to talk about our timeline and address day of details. We had a friend take engagement photos very early since I knew I would be out of town for a good chunk of our engagement time, and without missing a beat, Beau let us swap out his complimentary engagement photo session for 2 hours at our rehearsal dinner. Overall, he has a great vision for photography and set us at ease in our scouting the venue/portrait locations prior to our wedding. The day of he captured all the key moments and many great candids of the bridal party and guests. We elected to have a second shooter for a portion of the day, and Luke did an exceptional job, as well. My uncle, who is pretty particular, was impressed with Beau's ability to be in all the right places and take key photos all over our venue, so he deemed him "Mr. Super Fly." We could not be happier with the quality of our photos! We received a link to a "Preview Gallery" the day after our event with 46 stunning photos. In a few weeks time, Beau sent another link to our official gallery with the final and best 500+ photos. Online these pics were organized into categories for us (i.e. Prep, Ceremony, etc.), and we received a corresponding thumb drive in the mail for easy sharing, as well. Beau, we really appreciated all of your hard work and helping us preserve these special memories through such beautiful photos. Many thanks again! Allie & Vance
We couldn't have asked for a better photographer than Beau! We just received our final wedding pictures and they are absolutely gorgeous. He really knows how to get a variety of photos from different angles. His photos are spectactular. He is so nice and was an absolute pleasure to work with. Highly recommend. Thank you immensely for capturing our special day!!
Beau is fantastic! He captured all of the memories I wanted and will treasure forever. He is very organized and knows how to work with a wedding crowd. I highly recommend him!!
Beau was knowledgable, helpful, and skillful. We had a very large bridal party and a very opinionated family, Beau handled both perfectly! We ended up with stunning photos! Thank you Blue Spruce Wedding Photography! We highly recommend!!!
We had no idea how stressful and chaotic a wedding could be, but the photos Beau took highlighted all of the best moments. My husband admits to not being the biggest fan of posing for photos and he still talks about how much Beau put him at ease and made every shot perfect. He was incredibly patient with us and our families, even when the weather threatened to ruin the outdoor ceremony and photos. I could not have picked a better photographer, the quality of his work is worth far more than we paid, we will cherish these photos and memories forever. Blue Spruce Photography gave us the best experience we could have asked for!
We have beautiful engagement and wedding photos thanks to Blue Spruce Photography. Our photographers were professional and always responsive, and fun to work with! We can't wait to get some of our pictures printed up for family and for our home.
Beau Blackburn from Blue Spruce Photography did an outstanding job with our engagement & wedding photos. He is very professional & did a phenomenal job putting us at ease. He truly captured the moment. We get compliments on our wedding photos all the time. I would highly recommend his services to anyone considering him for their special event.
Beau was awesome. I am super indecisive, especially about the wedding, and he still did a great job even with very minimal guidance from me. Our pictures turned out beautiful and he got them to us very quickly, even giving us a quick preview before I got back from my honeymoon.
Picking Beau with Blue Spruce Photography to photograph our wedding was a great decision! When we were searching for a photographer we were getting discouraged with the price tag that most people charge. When Facebook showed me an add for Blue Spruce I thought that we might sacrifice some quality for paying a lot less. However, this was not the case at all! We had so many great photos from our wedding that it's going to be so hard to find favorites! As part of the package we had an engagement photo shoot with Beau. That gave us an opportunity to get comfortable in front of the camera and get to know beau. He has all sorts of lights and equipment and by his professionalism you can tell he takes his job seriously. He met us at our venue a couple of weeks before the wedding to get comfortable with the surroundings. Then on our wedding day he was truly a fly on the wall. He didn't get in the way of anyone enjoying themselves but also got so many great pictures that show he must have been right in the action! He is such a hard worker! Talking with friends who used other photographers getting our photos back in 3 weeks is unheard of. Most take a couple of months. We love our almost 1000 photos! He posted all of the pictures on a website to share and is sending a flash drive as well. We are so happy we chose Blue Spruce Photography to photograph our most important day!!
We couldn't be happier with our choice of photographer! Beau takes amazing pictures, he is like a photography ninja getting several different angles for each event/setting! We had a great experience during both our engagement session and the wedding. If you are looking for a wedding photographer in Colorado, look no further! If we need a photographer in the future, Blue Spruce Photography will be our first choice!
Extremely professional and timely in returning our beautiful photos. Our photos were just what we wanted and a true representation of what we discussed when we met earlier to go over our style. Beau is there to make sure your photos are exactly what you want. They turned out beautiful- Beyond pleased!!
Working with Beau and Blue Spruce Photography was a wonderful experience. He had vast knowledge of our venue and was able to make some really fabulous "photo op" recommendations. His communication throughout our planning process was superb; we live out of state and were planning a Colorado wedding from afar, and he was very accessible every step of the way. The thing I appreciated most on our wedding day was his calm and collected manner while he managed to snap some unforgettable images of our guests and loved ones.
Beau was such an amazing person to work with! On our initial meeting he was very nice, professional, organized and experienced. We knew right away Beau would be the perfect photographer for our big day. Beau made sure we were comfortable with him and his style and was extremely accommodating. He was in constant contact with us and made sure we had everything we needed and all questions were answered. Everything was PERFECT from our engagement photos to our wedding photos, we couldn’t have asked for more. He blended right in and truly captured the day. His attention to detail is phenomenal! All of our friends and family has nothing but good things to say about him. Saying that Beau is accommodating is an understatement! We had a timeline that did not flow very well (lots of last minute changes), Beau did not hesitate to jump on board and go along with all the changes that were made to our timeline. If you are looking for an organized, focused, flexible and professional photographer, I would highly recommend Beau with Blue Spruce Photography! We are so happy with all our photos, portraits and candid shots were amazing! My husband and I couldn’t have asked for a better photographer to work with. I hope Beau enjoyed capturing our special day just as much as we did! Thank you again Beau!!
From the beginning, Beau was incredibly helpful and excited about our wedding. He met us at the church and our reception venue before the day so we could have some ideas of what photos we would want. On the wedding day, he was so organized and calm, but always exactly where he needed to be to capture the best moments. I never felt like he was in our faces or interrupting- but when we received the photos- they were all amazing! He has a great eye and captured both posed and candid moments throughout the day. I would recommend Blue Spruce to anyone and would pick it again in a heartbeat!
Beau was tremendously professional, and literally all of the wedding party commented how how hard he worked the entire evening. Prior to the wedding, he had even gone to the venue on his own time to ensure he could stage the best quality pictures. He captured all aspects of the wedding reception, and got excellent candid shots as well as staged shots. He was organized, responsible, and extremely pleasant to work with. He is very professional and knows how to keep the mood light, and enriches the overall quality of the day and the wedding experience. Our pictures arrived to us within the first few weeks or marriage and we kept informed on the time it would take to process them. He has excellent experience with weddings, and I highly recommend him to capture your special day.
Beau was a dream to work with throughout the entire process. He was well organized leading up to the day of the wedding and made sure beforehand that we had a list of all of the pictures that we wanted. Beau is an absolute pro and I would recommend him without hesitation. We will love these pictures for the rest of our lives and cannot thank Blue Spruce enough!
Beau was a pleasure to work with from beginning to end. He is very laid back and helped us make sense of our vision. We had a tight budget and he was 1 of few photographers I met who was willing to be flexible. I was over the top organized and paranoid about making sure all my vendors were in order. Beau managed my obsessive e-mails with such grace and never made me feel ridiculous. He met with me prior to the wedding to scope out our venue and plan for which pictures would be taken where, so there were no questions on the day of. And on the day of when we were tired and ready to have a good time, he again was flexible with us. Most importantly, our photos turned out FABULOUS!! He captured my husband and I so well and made sure to get several pictures of our guests, which we loved. I highly recommend Beau and Blue Spruce Photography.
When searching for a wedding photographer, I was feeling so overwhelmed and frustrated! I knew it would cost a pretty penny for a photographer but the ones I had found at first were way over my budget! Then I came across Beau with Blue spruce photography! I contacted Beau for an inquiry, he was very friendly and offered to meet and discuss things over a cup of coffee! He showed me his previous work and it drew me in! He was affordable and professional. I am very pleased with my decision to stick with Beau, for both our engagement and wedding photos came out wonderful! I love the lighting, angles and color in our photos! Recommend!
Beau was truly everything we could have asked for in a photographer! I am a photographer myself and I was a little hesitant to let someone else take our wedding photos, but we really hit the jackpot with Beau! We adore our wedding pictures!! He worked with us on our busy schedules to get in time to go over exactly what we wanted and he worked with us on our budget! The pictures are truly perfect. He did a walk through of the venue before hand just so he knew where he wanted to do certain pictures, what kind of light he was going to use. He captured everything we wanted! He coordinated with our venue to make sure everything went smoothly and we had enough time for everything else! We also got our wedding pictures back extremely quick! I would highly recommend Blue Spruce to any one! I don't have anything negative to say about Blue spruce, everything was amazing!
Beau was incredible to work with and took the most beautiful photos of our wedding day. The entire day was a blur and I am so glad that I have these amazing photos to remember forever. Thank you Beau for being so amazing to work with and for capturing our day in the most beautiful way possible!
Every moment was captured! posted 6/15/2015 I can't thank Beau enough for his hard work. He worked with us to capture every moment to give us a lifetime of memories. He paid special attention to what sort of photos we were looking for and was extremely flexible with locations and time frames. Beau was professional and yet still made us feel as though he was a familiar face to smile at during our special day. Thanks Beau!
I had Beau as my photographer and he did an amazing job! He was knowledgeable, helpful, and took beautiful pictures! I am so happy with the way the pictures turned out and would recommend Beau to anyone who is looking for a professional who will take beautiful photos! Thank you Beau!
Beau at Blue Spruce was so wonderful to work with. He was professional and helpful - he did everything from provide active feedback during pictures to order the girls room service! The pictures we received were gorgeous and we will cherish them for a lifetime. The quality, service, and value are unbeatable in my opinion!
Beau made my wedding day easy and stress free. He was in constant communication with me through out the planning period as well as the day of the wedding. He always had helpful and experienced answers. He went above and beyond to make sure I had all the pictures I needed, from the ring shot to the reception. He never stopped working all night! He was flexible to any last minute changes that occurred and he adapted quickly and easily. I honestly couldn't be happier I chose Beau to capture my special day.
I've used Blue Spruce Photography three times - for my son's graduation pictures, my engagement pictures and for my wedding. None of us really like having our photos taken, but Beau not only made us feel comfortable but we actually had a great time. Beau is professional, timely and above all has the innate ability to capture the moment perfectly...so you can treasure it forever.
