Here is a recent Headshot photo session that I did in LoDo – If you need a headshot or a few “business casual” photos, I’m your girl!
I really like to collect things when I travel, especially natural objects! Things that I collect are sand (yes, you read that correctly!), sea shells, beach glass and heart rocks. I was given my very first heart rock by my step-daughter which started my collection. Of course, that particular one is the most precious one to me! I’ve now collected quite a few rocks and my “rock shelf” was overflowing, so I decided to try and display them in a little more organized fashion (I gave in to my Type A!). I love thrifting, so I found these 2 shelves at my favorite thrift store, painted them and borrowed a glue gun and I love how they came out! Finding a heart rock is just like finding Love (it could be right in front of your eyes if you just look for it).
I don’t know about you, but when I go shopping for a card, I have to read ALL the cards to make sure the one I pick transmits the exact feeling that I am feeling for the receiver of the card. I go thru all the cards and if I don’t find one that is PERFECT, I keep searching even if it means leaving the store empty handed. I’m feeling the same thing about my blog posts lately. I can tell you about how amazing each wedding day was, how much fun we had, how the day was magical. But, in all honesty, every wedding has a bit of fairy dust sprinkled on it. What I would like to convey more in my writings is how IMPORTANT and AMAZING love is…..The Feeling of IT – What it communicates to you and me and the world around us. Love is INSPIRING. So, I’ll probably be quoting more love poems and quotes than actually writing about what happened at the wedding (and how awesome my clients are – everyone knows THAT already!!)
“There are four questions of value in life….What is sacred? Of what is the spirit made? What is worth living for? What is worth dying for? The answer to each is the SAME. Only LOVE.” - Johnny Depp
“They told me that to make her fall in love, I had to make her laugh. But everytime she laughs, I’m the one who falls in love.” - Tommaso Ferraris
Meet Colleen and Joe. I think the quote above fits them to a T.

Meet Jessica and Matt!
They had their wedding at one of my favorite spots in Steamboat Springs, Fetcher Barn! The venue is surrounded by the most amazing Colorado scenery!
Meet Tiffany and Kevin!
They had a gorgeous Colorado wedding at one of my favorite venues, Crooked Willow Farms.
The weather wasn’t cooperating that day, so unfortunately the wedding ceremony had to be moved into Lola’s Loft, which made a beautiful setting for a wedding ceremony! After a typical Colorado afternoon shower passed by, we were outside again enjoying the lovely surroundings!

What an amazing and insightful year 2012 was!
Here are a few images from the year – so many photos taken and so many beautiful weddings, brides, grooms and families that we were lucky to meet this year! It was hard to choose these images just in the fact that there are so many wonderful parts to a wedding – the families and friends who gather to celebrate, sometimes from thousands of miles away – the beloveds that we give our hearts, our minds and our commitments to, and let’s not forget the dancing and the food and the love! Weddings are truly amazing!
I haven’t gotten to blog about half of my weddings from this year – stay tuned, enjoy and there is more to come!
Whew! I can’t believe it – but I am done for the year! All my wonderful clients have come through before deadlines and all wedding albums have been ordered, photo shoots delivered and every wedding backed up!
I recently delivered this gorgeous wedding album and it was fun to see the pure joy on my client’s face when she looked through it, reliving and relishing those moments from her wedding day. It really is an honor to become a witness and official “recordkeeper” of these amazing days in people’s lives. The experience of coming full circle – from planning months in advance, to photographing the wedding day, editing and post-production and then starting a whole entirely different creative experience to delivery of a keepsake that will be loved for generations to come is nothing short of amazing.
After she went home and showed her husband their wedding album, I received a text saying “Thank you for meeting today! I LOVE our wedding book! You’re so incredibly talented…thank you so much for sharing your magic with us”. I’m the lucky one.
Here is a recent image from a wedding at one of my favorite venues, Crooked Willow Farms. We stole a few moments away from the reception while guests were enjoying their meal to capture some really beautiful shots at sunset. Crooked Willow Farms is a perfect venue for a wedding – offering that rustic charm, lots of space and privacy and tons of different locations for photos!
