Bottom Lounge wedding | Chicago | Katie & Chris

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

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

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 »

Lynn Britt Cabin wedding | Allison & Walker

Lynn Britt Cabin wedding | Allison & Walker

Allison and Walker’s Lynn Britt Cabin wedding in Snowmass Village was a blast to shoot. Walker works for Microsoft and Allison is working on a PhD in Seattle so it was a destination wedding for everyone involved. Walker has been to Aspen a ton to ski and convinced Allison that it would make the perfect fall wedding location. I started with the ladies and my good friend Dustin held down the fort with the guys. It was important for Allison to incorporate some of her heritage and family traditions in… Read More »

Willow Ridge Manor wedding | Gina & Blake

Willow Ridge Manor wedding | Gina & Blake

Gina and Blake’s Willow Ridge Manor wedding was the perfect low key affair and I’m glad that Travis and myself were able to be apart of it. You don’t need to do much when you get married in Morrison at the edge of the foothills. The scenery is amazing in that part of town so it’s easy to see why they chose to get married at Willow Ridge Manor. Blake and Gina arrived nearly ready to go and only needed a few quick adjustments before saying I do. Despite it… Read More »

Lookout Mountain engagement photos | Melanie and Nick

Lookout Mountain engagement photos | Melanie and Nick

I was excited when Melanie and Nick asked me to shoot their Lookout Mountain engagement photos near Golden, Colorado. Usually when I’m on top of Lookout Mountain my heart rate is north of 160bpm because I’m riding my bike with friends to Buffalo Bill’s grave at the top. It’s a popular route and training ride for hundreds of road cyclists every single day. We started in Golden along the river before heading up the mountain. The road offers some great views of downtown Golden and even Denver along the way… Read More »

Breckenridge Boreas Pass wedding | Heidi & Frank

Breckenridge Boreas Pass wedding | Heidi & Frank

Frank and Heidi live in Minnesota’s Twin Cities and wanted a change of scenery for their special day and decided to have a Breckenridge Boreas Pass wedding with all their family and friends. Can you blame them? As a Colorado native I’m completely aware of how beautiful the state is but I hadn’t experienced the top of Boreas Pass until I Trent asked me to help document their wedding day. After the ceremony downtown we ventured up the dirt road on Boreas Pass despite the cold, windy conditions in search… Read More »

Field of Dreams wedding | Shannon & David

Field of Dreams wedding | Shannon & David

When I first found out that I was going to be traveling to Iowa to photograph Shannon and David’s Field of Dreams wedding alongside Travis I had a feeling that it was going to be amazing and I’m glad that feeling rang true. Pro/college sports and weddings eat up the majority of my schedule so this was the perfect amalgamation of the two. Everything about Iowa is exactly what you think it will be like. The people are friendly, the light is amazing and there is corn everywhere. That combined… Read More »
