Katherine – Head shots – Denver, Colorado

Meet Katherine. She reached out to me needing some new head shots. Next thing I know we’re in her grandparents amazing apartment over looking the Museum of Contemporary Art in Denver. I realized after the fact that I didn’t get many photos of the spectacular apartment, but that was for good reason. I was focused on making some beautiful images of Katherine instead. Honestly, she made my job easy. She’s a natural beauty with a personality to match.

Krista & Sam – Denver Union Station Engagement Session

Two weekends ago, I met Krista and Sam at Denver’s Union Station for a quick engagement photo session. As soon as we met they let me know they didn’t really want anything super posed or cheesy. I told them, no problem, and that I’d just document them talking and hanging out in various spots. So, what you see below, is them. All them. They are adorable together. We had such a good time walking around Union Station chatting and taking photos. They even danced on the train platform! Later that night I also photographed them at a local swing dance as well. I can not wait for their August wedding!

Porter Family – First Family Portrait – Albuquerque

I was thrilled to photograph the beautiful Porter family for their first official family portrait. They asked if they could also bring their dog Dottie along, as she is part of the family as well. We took a walk along the Bosque to catch the remaining fall colors. Between the falling leaves entertaining their daughter and the space to dash about for Dottie, it was a fun time for all!

Jesse & Kenny’s Wedding – Chief Hosa Lodge, Golden, Colorado

On a beautiful October day in Golden, Colorado, Jesse and Kenny tied the knot at Chief Hosa Lodge just outside of Denver. Surrounded by friends and family, the day was full of love, laughter, and later in the evening, some amazing dancing.

They met each other swing dancing at a weekend event on the east coast a few years ago. But as fate would have it, Kenny had plans to travel through Europe pretty much right after they met so a long distance correspondence (aided by technology & cute handwritten postcards) began their relationship. Now, together, they run Swingin’ Denver and teach others how to dance.

Chief Hosa Lodge, surrounded by trees and a view of the mountains, was an amazing venue for an amazing day. Even when their rings fell during the ceremony and rolled away precariously close to the edge of the ceremony site, it didn’t put a damper on the day as a bridesmaid was quick to catch them. After a pause for some laughter, the ceremony went on.

Their reception had some delicious and unique food. Check out the smoking popcorn! The band was amazing and everyone had a blast dancing the night away. Jesse, Kenny, and their friends are amazing dancers and the dance floor was packed until the very end of the night. Enjoy the photos!

Robin & Faye’s Florida Wedding

I had the great privilege of not only photographing Robin and Faye’s wedding in June but surprising them as well! Yes, they had no idea I was going to be there or photographing their wedding. It was a huge surprise that my parents and I had planned for months.

These two wonderful women have been part of my life since I was young. They have been part of my extended family, rooting me on and encouraging me through the years. They were finally able to get married this year in Florida, their home state.

They decided to rent a gorgeous riverside house for the week and hold their ceremony on the back patio overlooking the river. Their casual Florida wedding was filled with laughter, happiness, and tears of joy, as family and friends gathered to celebrate their marriage. Stones customized with their initials that they had everyone hold during the ceremony and then toss into the river with a wish, birds flying overhead, and stunning sunsets were just some of small pieces that made up their incredible day.
