Downtown Denver engagement | Amanda & Cuyler

Downtown Denver engagement | Amanda & Cuyler

When I met up with Amanda and Cuyler at Union Station for their downtown Denver engagement session we had such an amazing time, we spent almost two hours at Terminal Bar drinking. Time flies by when there are thirty amazing Colorado craft beers on tap, outstanding atmosphere and three funny people trying to one up each other. Amanda is a nurse and Cuyler works for the Copper Mountain Fire Department so they do a lot for other people and rightfully so I wanted them to have a great time and not rush straight into shooting. As a couple, they have a blast traveling and skiing together which makes sense because Cuyler proposed on the top of the mountain. Despite not being natives, they have definitely…

Summer Farm Wedding in Lyons, CO | Meghan & Jeremy

Summer Farm Wedding in Lyons, CO | Meghan & Jeremy

This past Saturday, I traveled north to photograph Meghan and Jeremy’s Lyons Farmette wedding. It’s a wonderful vintage venue near Boulder which makes it easy for guests. Their day was one of the most laid back weddings that I’ve documented in a while but there were tons of moments to be had. Mother Nature played nice and although Jeremy’s pants ripped before the ceremony, one of the bridesmaids quickly mended them with fabric glue, which is the first time I’ve seen that at a wedding. The Farmette is quaint but provided an excellent backdrop for the wedding. One of the unique features of the venue is the Airstream trailer that plays host to the bridal prep. It will be hard to find a more unique room…

Eldorado Springs engagement | Kristy and Jonathan

Eldorado Springs engagement | Kristy and Jonathan

The light was incredible for Kristy and Jonathan’s Eldorado Springs engagement session at the South Mesa Trailhead. These two have been together for ten years so they were naturally comfortable together. I spent the whole evening capturing their energy and playfulness. Although this area requires a permit it’s always worth it because it’s so beautiful. The tall grass, flatiron views and open meadows are lovely to photograph. It was a pleasure to document their Eldorado Springs engagement.

Ross and Emily’s Golf Course Wedding in Sedalia

Ross and Emily’s Golf Course Wedding in Sedalia

We had a blast documenting Ross and Emily’s Sanctuary Golf Course wedding. I photographed another wedding that Emily was a part of a couple years back and was honored Ross and her thought of me for her big day. The ladies started hair and makeup just down the street from my loft in LoDo at Luxe Salon which meant that I got to walk for a change. While I was there, Travis was at the course with the guys while they got ready It was an overcast, chilly fall day but the covered gazebo and gas heaters did a nice job of keeping everyone during the outdoor ceremony. We managed to mount a remote camera high inside the gazebo that provided a great angle for their…

Grand Hyatt wedding | Marika and Dean

Grand Hyatt wedding | Marika and Dean

It’s a great honor when a friend asks you to photograph their Denver Grand Hyatt wedding. Marika has been reminding since we were in college together that she wanted me to document the day so when she and Dean planned their Grand Hyatt Denver wedding I was grateful that she thought of me. I seem to have been adopted by the Greek Orthodox community because this wasn’t my first Greek wedding and I’m hopeful that it isn’t my last. I feel like family at every one that I do because they treat me that way. As a result, people let their guards down and I’m able to capture some great moments. The Assumption of the Theotokos Greek Orthodox Cathedral is one of my favorite places to photograph…

Roxborough State Park Engagement | Emily and Ross

Roxborough State Park Engagement | Emily and Ross

When I met up with Emily and Ross for their Roxborough State Park engagement it was raining and hailing so hard that we drove to a nearby underpass to keep ourselves and cars protected. Thankfully the weather let up, the sun came out and we were even graced with a rainbow. The entire area was lush and green thanks to so much rainfall lately. The area at Roxborough is naturally beautiful and Emily and Ross were so much fun to work with because they have a great time together. After spending most of the session near the massive red rock formations that stand out in the park we ventured up into the surrounding neighborhood. The wild grass was even taller there and I stood up…

Morton Arboretum Wedding | Marjorie & Brian

Last week I traveled to Chicago for the first of several times this year to help my close friend and fellow photojournalist Travis document Marjorie and Brian’s Morton Arboretum wedding. Getting to work with someone you know really well is a huge advantage because we often know what the other is thinking and as a team we can capitalize on making the best photos possible. It’s really no different than any other assignment that I work on in a team environment. When I’m the second photojournalist I don’t have the luxury of having met the client and having a relationship with them so I have to work even harder to develop a rapport with them and their family rather quickly. Being one of the bros…

Steamboat Springs wedding photographers | Carlyle & Michael

In 2006, while studying abroad in Rome, my interest for photography grew to a point where a group of friends convinced me that it was something that I should really pursue. Not only was Michael one of those friends, he was my roommate. This wedding meant a little bit more to me. A quick conversation about his engagement, his new wonderful gal and the upcoming wedding happened during a round of golf last fall, and I’ve been looking forward to documenting their day since. Fast forward to 11am on Saturday at Catamount Ranch Club and I thought all that build up was going to get muddled by the weather. Josh and I showed up a few hours early to get the photobooth set up but…

Colorado wedding photographers | Tamara & Sterling

Just like their engagement session, Tamara was nervous yet excited and Sterling was calm and collected. Her yin to his yang, if you will. The day had the perfect mix of excitement, anticipation and celebration at Cielo at Castle Pines. The weather held up and provided a dramatic evening sky that had almost a purple hue to it. The party really got started when the music kicked in and let me tell you, THEY GOT DOWN! Just like Alicia’s wedding (thanks for the referral A), even the little ones had more rhythm than most adults know what to do with. Young and old, everyone was on the dance floor having great time. Josh did a great job shooting with myself and holding a light here…
