Piney River Ranch wedding | Vail, CO | Becky and Brian

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 »

Garden of the Gods Club wedding | Colorado Springs | Devan & Joshua

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 »

Denver Museum of Nature and Science Wedding | Megan & Bill

I wish all my clients and their families were like Megan and Bill because their Denver Museum of Nature and Science wedding was one of the most enjoyable assignments that I’ve had in a while. It was great to get back to shoot another rooftop wedding at the museum.  Travis joined me to document the day and when we showed up at Magnolia Hotel to meet up with the ladies, Megan’s sister Lindsey greeted us at the door with a huge smile on her face and was ready to help us (and… Read More »

Downtown Littleton engagement session | Megan & Bill

There is nothing better than starting off an afternoon with beer and that’s exactly what we did for Megan and Bill’s downtown Littleton engagement session. Although it’s a few minutes outside of downtown Littleton we met up at the Breckenridge Brewery Farm House for a couple tasty suds to kick things off. If you haven’t been then you definitely need to check it out. The food is great and the beer is always top notch. The facility has a rustic feel and features plenty of seating both inside and out… Read More »

Galleria Marchetti wedding | Chicago | Erin & Chris

I traveled out to Chicago for Erin and Chris’ Galleria Marchetti wedding in June for their wonderfully quaint morning ceremony and brunch reception. Galleria Marchetti is a hidden gem in the River West neighborhood and you would have no idea that it’s so close to the highway because of the all of the trees that hide the property from the surrounding area. As a Colorado wedding photojournalist I’m spoiled with all of the outdoor ceremony locations that I get to work throughout the busy wedding season so it was a… Read More »

Bottom Lounge wedding | Chicago | Katie & Chris

Earlier this summer I traveled out to Chicago for Katie and Chris’ Bottom Lounge wedding. I started the day with Chris and his groomsmen at the couple’s home before we spent the rest of the day at Bottom Lounge in the west loop for the ceremony and reception. The above image was one of my favorites from the day because it really captured the essence of the venue. It’s a concert hall and bar most of the time so I wanted to highlight the feel that you get after spending… Read More »

Rembrandt Yard wedding | Boulder | Liz & Sean

It was nothing but smooth sailing for Liz and Sean’s Rembrandt Yard wedding in Boulder last weekend. Everyone was on time, the light was a spectacle, moments were plentiful and most importantly their loved shined through. I spent several hours with Liz, her mother and soon to be in-laws as they got ready at Rembrandt yard. While they shared hilarious stories together and allowed the moms to do what mothers do best, I was around to document it all. Dan was with Sean and his father down the street at… Read More »

Bridgeport Art Center wedding | Chicago | Brad & Christina

I recently traveled to Chicago to work alongside Travis at Brad and Christina’s Bridgeport Art Center wedding. Christina got ready at the Westin Chicago River Walk so Brad and myself waited outside for her to arrive for their first look. It was great to see them both so excited and emotional when they saw each other for the first time. The notoriously chilly Chicago weather didn’t stop us from making some portraits along the river walk. Despite the overcast light being really flat, we managed to find some color to… Read More »
