Madison at the Mill Wedding | Ashley & Richie

Madison at the Mill Wedding | Ashley & Richie

I’ve been fortunate enough to be friends with Ashley for more than 12 years since we met during a semester abroad in Rome, Italy. When I departed for that trip I had no idea that it would change my life and career path. I picked up a camera while I was there and haven’t put one down since thanks to people like Ashley who encouraged me along the way. When she asked me to photograph her and Richie’s Madison at the Mill wedding I was honored to do so. Richie waited for Ashley while she explored the world and even traveled great distances to see her so before I ever met him I had an immense amount of respect for him. Having only drank a…

Cherokee Ranch & Castle Wedding | Melissa and Jordan

Cherokee Ranch & Castle Wedding | Melissa and Jordan

Melissa is always smiling and Jordan brings out the best in her which is why their Cherokee Ranch & Castle wedding this fall was a treat to photograph. You may remember their Elk Meadow Park winter engagement session from earlier this year but their wedding provides an even better glimpse into them as a couple. Travis joined me once again to document their day and he met up with Jordan and the groomsmen at Halcyon Hotel in Cherry Creek while I was with the ladies at the Four Seasons downtown. Before too long we all made the trek south to Sedalia where the castle is located a couple miles up a private drive that leads to spectacular views of the Front Range. The stone walls…

Fall Frisco Engagement | Julia & Micah

Fall Frisco Engagement | Julia & Micah

In a rare showing, Julia and Micah’s fall Frisco engagement featured gorgeous fall colors and a snowy winter wonderland atop Shrine Pass. They’re both in grad school in Nashville and traveled out to Colorado for their session so I’m glad that the weather worked out. It’s not often that a session has two completely different feels but theirs definitely did. We met up in Frisco before venturing over to a few locations that had the last remaining golden aspen trees in the area. Our next stop required all wheel drive so they hopped in my car for the journey up Shrine Pass near Vail. The area was recently blanketed by the first major snow of the season but that didn’t stop them from embracing the elements….

Fall Piney Lake Engagement in Vail | Caroline & Brendan

Fall Piney Lake Engagement in Vail | Caroline & Brendan

If you’ve never seen the Gore Range from Piney Lake, it should be on your Colorado bucket list. For that reason alone, I was excited when Caroline and Brendan asked me to shoot their fall Piney Lake engagement in Vail. Located about 40 minutes North of the town of Vail up a logging road, it may be a bumpy ride but the view alone is worth the adventure. I haven’t been back since I photographed this wedding at the ranch and fall is the perfect time to visit. Caroline and Brendan are getting married out of state and since they love the mountains and water, we knew this would be an ideal location for their engagement photos. We shared a beer on the deck before venturing…

Cheesman Park Wedding | Sara & Ryan

Cheesman Park Wedding | Sara & Ryan

Last weekend I didn’t have to travel far for Sara and Ryan’s Cheesman Park wedding. It was refreshing to walk over to the Westin where the ladies got ready while Travis drove over to their condo to start with the guys. Sara was mostly done with hair and makeup when I arrived so she was able to relax while her family got ready. The weather was a touch chilly but there wasn’t a cloud in the sky by the time the ceremony started under the pavilion at Cheesman Park. They opted not to see each other before the ceremony so there was a great moment when Sara walked down the aisle with her father. The sun poured in over the nuptials as both Ryan and Sarah…

Golden Gate Canyon State Park Engagement | Paige & Adam

Golden Gate Canyon State Park Engagement | Paige & Adam

Paige and Adam have been looking forward to the fall colors for their Golden Gate Canyon State Park engagement since I met with them earlier this year. We had another location picked out initially but the early season snow forced us to change dates and locations. It all worked out in the end because their session was full of screaming sunlight and yellow aspen trees. I shot another fall colors engagement in the park earlier this month but the trees had only begun to change. We met up at Cannonball Creek Brewing and after they downed some liquid courage they jumped in my car and we drove up the canyon road in search of some epic locations. Before we could even get into the park we…

Fall Riverside Wedding | Mallory & Daniel

Fall Riverside Wedding | Mallory & Daniel

Mallory and Daniel’s September Snowmass Cottages wedding last weekend was the prefect representation of their personalities, style and love for Colorado. Daniel enjoys fly fishing and the two of them fell in love with the venue after spending so much time in the area. It has been a busy seven months for Mallory’s parents Richard and Janice as they watched all three of their daughters get married in 2017. During his opening remarks, Richard made sure to note that his only reservation about the cottages was that it was “quite a schlep” from Denver (and the East coast) but after seeing the whole day come together he felt nothing but joy. I knew that their wedding would be fantastic to experience and photograph because their…

Rembrandt Yard fall wedding | Megan and Bryan | Boulder

Rembrandt Yard fall wedding | Megan and Bryan | Boulder

Megan and Bryan’s Rembrandt Yard fall wedding was the perfect culmination of their relationship because after meeting many years ago at the University of Colorado in Boulder they returned to where it all began to make things official. Surrounded by friends and family from around the country and beyond, they shared their vows together in front of a thousand hand folded paper cranes with the Flatirons visible through the huge picture windows on the third floor of Rembrandt Yard. I knew what to expect at this fantastic space because I photographer another wedding at Rembrandt Yard wedding earlier this season. When I met with them earlier this year for the first time I knew that they would be one of my favorite couples of the year because they…

Willow Ridge Manor wedding | Gina & Blake

Willow Ridge Manor wedding | Gina & Blake

Gina and Blake’s Willow Ridge Manor wedding was the perfect low key affair and I’m glad that Travis and myself were able to be apart of it. You don’t need to do much when you get married in Morrison at the edge of the foothills. The scenery is amazing in that part of town so it’s easy to see why they chose to get married at Willow Ridge Manor. Blake and Gina arrived nearly ready to go and only needed a few quick adjustments before saying I do. Despite it being their special day, they wanted their guests to have a great time. We only had to jaunt across the street for a few portraits so that they could be back quickly to enjoy happy…

Fall Denver Museum of Nature and Science Wedding | Amanda & Cuyler

Fall Denver Museum of Nature and Science Wedding | Amanda & Cuyler

Yes, Amanda & Cuyler are back on the blog for their fall Denver Museum of Nature and Science wedding from this past Saturday. Travis joined me as always to help document the day from start to finish and what a day it was. If you missed their downtown Denver engagement photos be sure to check them out. Amanda showed up with a small army of amazing friends to help set things up and of course drink a little bubbly before getting into her dress. Meanwhile, Cuyler was at the hotel sipping on whiskey with friends and practicing his vows. I know this because Amanda showed me a hilarious Instagram post and a text message on her phone. I could tell that put her at ease because…
