Sometimes, Marta Sulima gazes at her clients with envy. “There’s always a part of me that wishes I got married while skiing because skiing has been a big part of my husband’s and my relationship,” Sulima says. Unfortunately, tying the knot on the slopes was still a novelty when she exchanged her vows in 2019. But now, with an increasing number of couples eschewing the expense of traditional ceremonies in favor of elopements and micro weddings, many Coloradans are opting to say “I do” clicked into their skis and boards. That’s created a cottage industry of photographers specializing in ski weddings, including fellow photog Gabrielle Stowe, the 30-year-old Summit County creative behind Ski The Day Photography, who shot 11 weddings, 14 proposals, and three engagements last ski season. Stowe says most of the job entails scouting locations and lugging equipment up the mountain. Then, when it’s time to carve, she’ll do whatever it takes to get the shot—even if it means eating snow instead of cake.
