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… Read More »

Riverfront Park engagement | Carlyle & Michael

It’s not often that I get to photograph my friends so when the opportunity presents itself it’s always something that I look forward to. Michael has been a good friend since we lived next door to each other in the dorms our freshman year of undergrad and we later roomed together during a semester abroad in Rome. Carlyle and I are both marketing geeks so it’s been fun to talk shop while we’ve been able to get to know each other the past eight months or so. Along with a… Read More »

Colorado engagement photographers | Krista & Matt

Some couples just get it. I don’t have to say anything. They do their thing and I do mine. Krista and Matt are one of those couples. It probably didn’t hurt that Matt studied photojournalism in college and it wasn’t Krista’s first time in front of a camera. That really meant that the pressure was all on me. As someone whose personal style lives through graphic elements and color, I couldn’t have asked for much more. It’s a blast to walk through parts of downtown and find new locations, colors… Read More »

Engagement photos in Denver | Tamara & Sterling

Watching Sterling’s cool, smooth charm bring out Tamara’s bubbly personality was a treat to see. I don’t know what he was telling her but clearly, it was working. They came to me with the one word of inspiration, modern. The architecture of the ultra modern Denver Art Museum was the first thing that came to mind. The sharp lines and white walls made it fantastic to shoot in. I wanted to shoot in another location with a contrasting style and the timeless Oxford hotel definitely fit the bill. Something out… Read More »

Denver engagement photographers | Elynor & Dermot

Watching Elynor May and Dermot Monks enjoy each other’s company this evening was not only a pleasure to experience but also a joy to photograph as a denver engagement photographer. When you combine the interesting locations, amazing light and great fashion that we had to work with you might of thought we were on a movie set tonight. Once again everything fell into place but it’s easy to say that when you get clients who just “get it,” like these two. Wandering downtown near a few of my new favorite… Read More »

Red Rocks engagement – Holly & Luke

I spent an outstanding Colorado evening with Holly Benson and Luke Johnson up at Red Rocks Park and Amphitheater photographing their engagement session. The amazing natural concert venue has played host to some of the all time musical legends and with a view that overlooks the city of Denver, it’s definitely a great place to make a few images. I went to undergrad at DU with both of them and even spent a few days shooting Holly who played volleyball for the Pioneers. Luke is no stranger to competition either,… Read More »

Boulder engagement

“Rachel Sackmaster and Rob Young celebrate their engagement at Chautaqua Park in Boulder, Monday, Feb. 15, 2010. The couple, who met as students at the University of Denver, are set to be married in May.” It’s just that time of the year. I spent a cold President’s Day afternoon with Rachel and Rob at Chautaqua Park in Boulder that sits at the base of the gorgeous flatirons. Shooting in cold weather and around snow is always challenging but the benefit is that you can get some some much different images… Read More »

Estes Park engagement

“Vanessa and Mike celebrate their engagement in the snow in Estes Park, Saturday, Feb. 20, 2010.” Saturday, before photographing the state wrestling championships, Evan Semon and myself drove up to Estes Park to shoot a small engagement session for Vanessa and Mike. We’re shooting their wedding later this year and despite the cold weather they managed to have some fun in the snow while we made a few images. While Evan was shooting a few images using the great scenic backdrop that Estes Park has, I stayed farther back with… Read More »
