We LOVE what we do!
Here at White Bison Weddings, we LOVE what we do! We have had countless experiences in which we look to our team at the end of an event and ask, “How cool was that?!”
In over 25 years of combined wedding photography experience, we have enjoyed the pleasure of connecting with amazing people and documenting their most precious and valuable moments.
We consider it the highest honor and privilege to be welcomed into your family’s inner circle on one of the most important days of your lives. Our team takes great pride in our expertise, knowing that the photos we take for you will live on in generations to come. We put our heart and soul into our craft to provide you with the peace of mind and confidence that our photography will exceed your expectations. It’s sometimes hard to express how blessed we feel to witness the passion, bonds, and memories that you and your loved ones have created. We love what we do, and are lucky enough do what we love!
The White Bison
In Lakota tradition, the birth of a sacred white buffalo is a sign of hope and an indication of good times to come. At White Bison Weddings, we believe in manifesting abundance through relationships. We chose the symbol of the White Bison as our sigil to represent our dedication to positivity through connection.

The White Bison Weddings Team
White Bison Weddings Owner / Founder - David Alderman
"Art has allowed me to express my visions of my life experiences".
David Alderman is a celebrated photographer and artist with over 25 years of experience. His accomplishments include documenting a broad range of high profile events (such as the Super Bowl, American Express Advertising, Sporting Events, Vail Resorts Events, Red Bull Events, Concerts, and Weddings) receiving magazine cover features (in ___), and being lauded by past clients and the fine arts community.
For as long as David Alderman can remember, his life and his art have been intimately aligned. David sees the world from a remarkably unique perspective. He uses the lenses of his camera like brushes on a canvas to paint an expressive vision and tell a resonating tale. David has the rare disposition of a natural storyteller who loves to engage with others. He is committed to living in the moment, cultivating deep relationships, and always challenging the status quo. David's work captures the essence of his subjects in their most honest expression. Each image that is produced is the result of a perfect moment of meaningful connection.
David enjoys the lifestyle of an eclectic genius with an multifaceted brain. He spends equal time creating art in his gallery and managing the logistics of his entrepreneurial endeavors. When David is not passionately pursuing his craft or his business, you can find him socializing and connecting to the communities that he loves. David's work is timeless, memorable, and reflective of his motto, “Life is art and art is life”.

White Bison Weddings Founder / Owner - Jake Holschuh
Jake Holschuh is an incredibly talented photographer based in Denver, Colorado who boldly creates cinematic drama with his brilliant perspective. Jake graduated Summa Cum Laude from Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design with a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Photography and Video. After graduation, he succeeded in freelance photography commissioning works for many of the most successful magazines (Denver Westword, 5280, DOPE, etc) and companies (Columbia, Phillips, Upslope Brewing, and more) in Colorado. Jake utilizes his talent to capture imagery that is not only visually stunning, but also accurately represents and tells the true story of the subject.
Jake is fascinated by connections with new people, discovering hidden places, and learning about different perspectives and practices. He emulates this zeal for life in his photography work by resonating with his subjects, unearthing their truth, and capturing their unique essence in poetic imagery. Jake's demeanor is interactive and playful, but also professional.
Jake loves relaxing and being with family and friends. He cherishes valuable time exploring the Rocky Mountains and volunteering to do social work in his community. Jake can typically be found in one of many coffee shops around Denver, working diligently behind a MacBook and drinking WAY TOO MUCH coffee. Although he specializes in Weddings, Editorials, Outdoor, and Travel photography, Jake states that Weddings are his absolute favorite because, "it is an incredible honor to be welcome into someone's family, their inner circle, on one of the most important days of their life. We get to become witnesses to the love, the connections, the memories, and the bonds that you and your loved one have created around you...Sometimes it almost feels like we become part of the family for this one day."

How would you describe your shooting style?
Documentary, but with a twist of artistic vision. Both of us come from artistic backgrounds and we've shown our work in a handful of galleries and have photographed everything from rock stars to weddings. We like to sneak around and capture all the intimate moments that most people would miss, but we also love to get that killer shot of the couple on top of a mountain. We love playing with our environment and the sunlight to capture the beauty of your location and the love that exists between you two.
