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 walk along Mule Deer Trail during their Golden Gate Canyon State Park engagement

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 »

Jefferson Park Engagement | Angie & Chris

Chris and Angie embrace outside of Briar Common Brewery in the Jefferson Park neighborhood of Denver during their engagement photos

Chris and I had mutual friends in high school and we’re sure we had a beverage or two together at some point so it made sense to start their Jefferson Park engagement at a brewery. Angie and Chris live in the up and coming neighborhood which features a couple of great restaurants as well as Briar Common Brewery, where we started. We chatted over a couple of hoppy beers outside in the sunlight and it was so good that we almost ordered a second round. They live just down the street so… Read More »

Snowmass Cottages Wedding | Mallory & Daniel

Mallory and Daniel share a laugh together at Snowmass Cottages

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… Read More »

Fall Golden Engagement | Coza & Joel

Joel and Coza share a moment together in a grove of aspen trees along Gap road in Golden Gate Canyon State Park during their fall Golden engagement

As fall approaches, it was still quite warm for Coza and Joel’s fall Golden engagement photos last week. The higher temperatures have prevented the trees at lower elevations from changing into all their gorgeous hues yet. We were determined to find some color for their session though because like myself, they’re also Colorado natives and fall colors are a great aspect of the state. They have a ton of fun together and are self proclaimed nerds like myself so we had a fantastic time during their session. Joel is so sweet to Coza and she… Read More »

Breckenridge fall colors engagement photos | Shabnam & Joseph

Shabnam and Joseph embrace on Boreas Pass road as twilight sets during their Breckenridge fall colors engagement photos

Shabnam and Joseph are some of the most intelligent, compassionate people that I have met in recent memory so I wanted to do something special for their session. They recently moved to Denver for medical residency and hadn’t had a chance to check out much of Colorado so they suggested that I choose a location. Since they hadn’t been to the mountains before and the leaves were changing I suggested we drive west to shoot their Breckenridge fall colors engagement photos. Boreas Pass is one of my favorite places to… Read More »

Chicago Loft Wedding | David & Emmet

Chicago Loft Wedding first dance

Earlier this summer I traveled to the Windy City for David and Emmet’s Chicago Loft Wedding at the Bridgeport Art Center’s Skyline Loft. Working alongside Chicago Wedding Photographer Travis, we’ve photographed several of the loft venues in the city and Bridgeport is among our favorite. Typically we start separately but since David and Emmet got dressed together it was a team effort from the start. The room was fool of energy as their sisters joined them to help put the finishing touches on their looks and celebrate with a bottle… Read More »

LoDo Denver Engagement Photos | Danielle & Jordan

Danielle and Jordan share a laugh while posing for their LoDo Denver engagement photos in August

Danielle and Jordan are two incredible human beings and extremely busy people so I was glad that we were able to schedule their LoDo Denver engagement photos during the 24-hours that Jordan was in town to help Danielle move. Danielle is finishing her PsyD and Jordan is a medical resident in Chicago so they spend most of their time helping others. I spent a little extra time with them hitting some of their favorite locations downtown on Thursday evening. I’ve shot downtown Denver engagement photos before so I have a good sense of… Read More »
