Colorado couples: there's a new game in town who will make your wedding photography POP Y'all might already know about Shandi Wallace Photography and her mad skills and laid-back style, but there's NEWS.

So if you're in the area, now is totally the time to secure a spot on her calendar. Oh, and we maaay have a killer discount for readers that you'll want to know about.

Say YES to more of these candid moments Here's a little more from Shandi herself on why she doesn't mess anyone around with fees and nonsense. She makes us all sigh with relief… "My business philosophy is to keep things simple and sane. I don’t nickel and dime, because I hate when it happens to me. My wedding coverage is all-inclusive. That means one flat rate for the whole wedding day. I don’t do forced packages full of grandparent pocket albums (?), keychains (?!?), or printed coffee mugs. I don’t believe in taking advantage of the 'wedding high' and trying to sell you crap that you won’t need or want a year later. I especially don’t like the idea of hourly packages. I feel like it really sets a limit. And who the heck wants to be watching a clock? I show up when you’re getting ready, and I leave for the night when you do. THAT is your wedding day. Start to finish. When I shoot, I prefer to just anticipate and catch what’s there. I don’t like perfectly posed photographs. (Though we’ll probably do one or two. Grandma will want one.) The candid expressions and moments are the most important part of photographs to me. I like to be able to look at old photos, and instantly remember what it felt like." Any clients we can hear from? Shandi has a loyal following because she delivers on her promise on meaningful, journalistic photos that tell the most authentic story of your wedding day. Plus, she's rad and funny and makes things just way easier on you. "Shandi is an incredible person and an extremely talented photographer. I could go on forever about how much I love her and can't imagine my wedding day without her, but I simply don't have the space :). Take my word for it, she is truly wonderful. She did an amazing job documenting our wedding day– she was there from start to finish and was a fun, calm, subtle presence the entire time. She has a great sense of humor, which is helpful if you're uncomfortable in front of the camera (like me), and she knows how to get a great shot. Her work comes out beautifully– the lighting, the angle, the moment, everything. I love looking back at all of our photos, it's like I'm experiencing my wedding day all over again. Thank you, Shandi, for giving us such wonderful memories of such a special day. I'm so glad you were a part of it!!!" – Gayle, married on 05/23/2015 How I'd feel getting that slick discount How about that hugh jass discount?
