Century Tree Co.
We're visual storytellers
Hey! We’re Shannon and Joe Terrell!
And our little wedding company, Century Tree Co., is what happens when two people in the wedding industry – a California girl and a Texas boy – fall in love, get married, and move to Colorado.
We’re visual storytellers, and we believe every wedding or elopement should be as unique as the love story that leads you to the altar (or mountaintop). We’re not fans of staged, awkward, or cheesy poses – we value raw emotions and vulnerable experiences, and our photography style reflects our desire to capture romance and adventure in all of its magical, wild, and awe-inspiring glory.
But most importantly, we live to celebrate marriage. As a married couple, we think marriage is one of the greatest things two people can decide to do together. And, because of that, we want to be more than people who provide a service on your wedding day – we want to invest in you and your relationship. We’ll be there to laugh, cry, and squeal with joy on one of the most emotional, intimate, and important days of your life – and, all the while, documenting every crazy, wondrous, and precious moment along the journey.
At Century Tree Co., you and your spouse are more than clients – you’re our friends. And we’re for you.
What do you consider your style to be? Our style favors genuine emotion with your loved ones, candid moments adventuring in the wild, celebrating natural light throughout the day, and kickass time laughing together.
What are your favorite kinds of couples to work with? Our couples go with the flow, and enjoy the little things in life - striving for the exhilarating experiences together. Couples who appreciate the journey more than the destination (or as much!) make our hearts so happy, because their marriage is the journey. We love sitting with our people around the campfire sharing our favorite memories, getting goofy, and being able to appreciate community.
How did you get started in the wedding industry? Century Tree Co. started in 2013 with DJing and Videography with two brothers, and now we have a husband and wife team! We were fortunate enough to start our business in Texas with an incredible community. We learned that community is so much more important than competition, and that has carried with us in every aspect of our work. Things really kicked off for us in 2015 when Shannon (the photographer) took over the marketing of the business and networked with everyone around her. From there, we referred out people, and they returned the favor.
Do you travel for clients? If so, where? Yes! We have been traveling all our wholes, traveling to 19 countries! Shannon is from California, and Joe is from Texas, so it's in our marriage description to be traveling to Yosemite & Austin quite a bit. We honeymooned in Banff and have spent summers in the Mediterranean and Iceland. We value traveling so much, so we are down to meet anyone anywhere! We have some Rocky Mountain bucket list places we would love to experience with you!
