Georgetown and Loveland Pass Engagement Photos | Mallory and Daniel

Daniel kisses Mallory as the two embrace on top of Loveland pass as the sun sets near Keystone Colorado

Colorado is known for breathtaking views in the Rocky Mountains and the scenery didn’t disappoint for Mallory and Daniel’s Georgetown and Loveland Pass Engagement Photos earlier this week. Daniel actually proposed to Mallory after one of her piano concerts near the Georgetown Loop Railroad so I was excited to photograph them in a location that meant a lot to both of them. I truly believe that the more meaningful the location for an engagement session, the better the images can be. I typically start things off at a bar so everyone can… Read More »

Cody embraces Erica during their colorful summertime Michigan engagement session in downtown Royal Oak

Last week I was in Michigan to photograph a wedding in the Detroit area with Travis and while I was there we met up with his brother Cody and future sister-in-law Erica for their Royal Oak engagement photos. Next spring Travis will be part of their big day, but on the opposite side of the camera as the best man. I on the other hand will be photographing the wedding. I always encourage couples to shoot engagement photos with me so that they can become comfortable in front of the… Read More »

Fort Collins Wedding | Courtney and Noah

Last Saturday I was fortunate enough to photograph Courtney and Noah’s Fort Collins wedding. From the moment that I met with them last fall I knew that it would be a great day because they each appreciated photography so much and provided me the trust that I need to make great pictures. The energy was high from the moment that I walked into the room with Courtney and her “Brosmaids” as they listened to Janet Jackson’s greatest hits on blast while dancing non-stop, only stopping for the obligatory hair and… Read More »

Rembrandt Yard fall wedding | Megan and Bryan | Boulder

The couple share a kiss surrounded by maple leaves in Boulder, Colorado

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. When I met with them earlier this year for the first… Read More »

Becky and Brian share a moment during their first look at Piney River Ranch in front of the Gore mountain range.

Last week after photographing the Denver Broncos season opener I made the drive west up I-70 with Travis to Vail for Becky and Brian’s Piney River Ranch wedding. The next morning Mother Nature greeted us with blue skies on our walk through Vail Village over to The Lodge at Vail where both wedding parties were getting ready. The ladies had a great view of the mountain while they did hair and makeup. Travis was with the guys a floor below for most of the morning but called me down to… Read More »

Bride Devan walks out with her parents during her summer wedding ceremony at Garden of the Gods Club in Colorado Springs near the Rocky Mountains for

I was so excited to photograph Devan and Joshua’s Garden of the Gods Club wedding in Colorado Springs last week because the setting screams Colorado. As a Denver native I know how beautiful our state is but many of their families traveled from great distances and didn’t know the treat that was in store for them. Devan is from New Jersey and Joshua’s family resides in Chicago and Indianapolis but they even had family travel from as far as Africa to be at the ceremony. That alone tells you how… Read More »
