Crooked Willow Farms Wedding | Danielle & Jordan

Danielle and Jordan’s Crooked Willow Farms wedding in Larkspur was full of the rustic charm that you would expect from a gorgeous Colorado barn venue. The cold and rainy weather forced us inside for most of the day and while every wedding has it’s challenges and I was throughly impressed at how Danielle, Jordan and their families didn’t let anything stop them from going on with the show. Danielle looked absolutely gorgeous and was enthusiastic throughout the day. Jordan was calm and collected but lit up when he saw Danielle for their… Read More »

Spring Engagement in Downtown Denver | Katie & Joel

Joel kisses Katie in front of Denver's Union Station during their spring engagement session at twilight

When I met Katie and Joel last fall we ended up cracking open one of my favorite beers, Goose Island Bourbon County Brand Stout, out of my cellar which is always a good sign. We naturally met up at a brewery to catch up before starting their spring engagement in downtown Denver. They’re new to Denver and open to whatever so I suggested that we have a pint at Ratio Brewing in RiNo since the area has lots of colorful backdrops for the start of the day. After walking a few blocks around the neighborhood… Read More »

Evergreen Engagement | Hannah & James

Hannah and James are fellow Colorado natives and love the outdoors so I was excited that they wanted to venture to a couple of new locations for their Evergreen engagement session. We met up at the Maxwell Falls trailhead, enjoyed some Jack and Cokes (their favorite) and played with their new Australian Shepard puppy Rey. She was having a blast tromping in the snow and even managed to sit still for a couple photos which wasn’t an easy task. James’ mother took the dog with her back to the city… Read More »

Spring Golden Gate Canyon Engagement | Kate & Brian

I had an absolute blast on Saturday afternoon for their Spring Golden Gate Canyon engagement session. We met up at the best brewery in Golden for one beer and spent over an hour catching up before we all piled into the car with their dog Koda and drove west. The park is one of my favorite places to shoot especially during the fall. I was pleasantly surprised when Kate turned on some Lil Wayne to get herself pumped up for the shoot and we jammed all the way to Kriley… Read More »

Elk Meadow Park Winter Engagement | Melissa & Jordan

Melissa and Jordan embrage during their Elk Meadow Park winter engagement session near Evergreen, Colorado

Last weekend I met Melissa and Jordan near her hometown of Evergreen for their Elk Meadow Park winter engagement. Despite the cold and windy conditions we had a blast tromping around in the snow before the sun fell behind the mountain. Jordan enjoys hunting this time of the year so he was accustomed to the chilly temperatures. It was a gorgeous area so I can see Melissa was keen to shoot in familiar surroundings. These two have an adorable connection together and once you spend some time with them you can see how… Read More »

Room 1520 Wedding | Chicago

Chelsea and Ori embrace under an umbrella as they're surrounded by a rainbow on the rooftop during their Room 1520 wedding in Chicago

I was recently in the windy city to help my friend and Chicago Wedding Photographer Travis Haughton document C and O’s Room 1520 wedding just west of Downtown. It’s definitely one of my favorite venues in Chicago like Bridgeport. I started the day with the guys at the Raffaello Hotel before we headed up to the fantastic rooftop for their first look. C looked absolutely stunning in what was possibly my favorite dress of the year and O had a huge smile on his face when he saw her. After a few… Read More »

Cheesman Park Wedding | Sara & Ryan

The couple walk together in the Cheesman Park pavillion after their fall wedding in Denver

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… Read More »

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… Read More »
