We’re a soon-to-be husband and wife wedding photography team based in Durango, CO! We met in sweet home Alabama, fell in love, and moved our sweet tea and buttered biscuits to Southwest Colorado and now aim to be the very best Durango wedding photographers! We love exploring new places and capturing love stories among natural scenes. Together, we’ve been lucky enough to have traveled in beautiful places by bicycle - from the colorful towns of Cuba, the towering mountains of Peru, and the quaint countryside in Italy. One of our favorite landscapes to explore happens to be in our very own backyard, The San Juan Mountains and the desert of Southern Utah. We believe there is no better way of creating meaningful experiences with the people you love than by sharing your stories, exploring your passions, and surrounding yourself with the ones you love under the big starry western sky.

During college, Trent worked in a photography lab gutting film canisters, chopping negatives and making prints. Thousands of frames later, it became time to transition from the development side of photography into the production of it. After graduating from the University of Northern Colorado with a Journalism degree and a stint in photojournalism, it led him to one of the most challenging, exciting and riveting arenas in the industry. Wedding photography. Several years after going full time with Gillespie Photography, he met Stacy and managed to drag her along on his many photo adventures. In 2013 they were married and now serve as Gillespie Photography’s primary photographers. Outside of photography, he loves spending time on the water, racing down powder-covered slopes strapped to a board, backpacking in the rocky mountains, and planning for the next adventure. He’s thankful for many things, but most importantly, a graceful God. [Summit County Wedding Photographer]
I'm Amanda Lamb, and I'm based in Colorado Springs, CO and Brooklyn, NY. I began learning photography when I was in high school, trying to shoot for my school's yearbook publication. This was still in the "dark ages" of film, but I feel lucky that my roots sprouted there. These early experiences and trying to shoot in a way that supported, or told in its entirety the rest of what was on the page, shaped my preference for capturing moments as they happened. I shoot no more than 25 weddings per year. This allows me to give my very best to each and every bride and groom I have the pleasure of serving. In addition to shooting weddings, I also shoot boudoir and portraits. I've been married for 8 years, and have two children and a dog. My daughter and my son complete my life in a way I never thought possible. While I don't know of any other artists in my family, there are definitely some very creative people who came before me, and I can see this creativity in my children daily. It warms my heart. Prior to photography, I was a high school social studies teacher for 7 years. Being around high schoolers is it's own kind of rush. My business started with seniors, and eventually grew into weddings and other events. Keeping control of 30 10th and 12th graders gave me great insight into crowd management, a skill I've found very useful at weddings... especially those with big, fun-loving wedding parties.
