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 »

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 »

Royal Oak Engagement Photos | Erica & Cody

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 »
