Here's a pretty funny photo from a recent wedding at Garden of the Gods Club in Colorado Springs...too cute!
Sometimes I get requests to do a "jumping" photo, however there always seems to be one person who is slightly off...see what I mean? (Haha).
Meet Sarah and Joey and check out these beautiful views from the Country Club at Castle Pines! It was a perfect Colorado afternoon for this session! We had some great laughs and both Sarah and Joey were so comfortable in front of the camera - can't wait until the wedding day at the amazing Broadmoor!
Meet Erika and Mike. You know when the wedding guests do "the Wave" while waiting for the ceremony to begin - you are in for a fun wedding! Erika and Mike had a perfect wedding: amazing weather, beautiful surroundings, love, laughter, some tears and most of all: a rocking good time surrounded by the people they love! I can't really ever remember a wedding where I wanted to dance along with everyone, it was so much fun to capture! Enjoy!

Meet Jennie and Kent! Kent surprised Jennie one night during one of their nightly dog walks at Wash Park. He went to the park earlier in the day with chalk and wrote out their initials and a big heart on a path somewhat secluded from the main road. Jennie was completely surprised to see their initials on the path when they came across it and was thrilled when Kent then went down on bended knee! How romantic!
Enjoy! Can't wait until your wedding in September!
It's not often that I am on the other side of the lens! Recently my Mom was here for a visit and we took a few minutes to get a portrait done by a good friend of mine. As a photographer, I know how important it is to document these moments and while it makes my really uncomfortable to be photographed, alas I sucked it up! Gotta practice what you preach, right? Enjoy!
One of the things that I find hugely important in my life as a "creative" is to do personal work. The blog post before this one featured my friend and fellow photographer, Laura. She knew that I'm trying to build my yoga portfolio so she happily offered to do a bit of yoga "posing" for me and this is what came out of it. I'm very happy with what we created!

Meet Laura - I'm sure some of you know of Laura. We are both photographers. We met many years ago and, way back in the day, helped and inspired each other to grow our wedding photography businesses. There were no on-line forums or photography groups that you could learn from like there are today - we just had each other and another dear friend - Jamee. We were the 3 musketeers. We would meet and talk about our businesses - our ups, downs and the challenges we had. Jamee was the first to get married and both Laura and I photographed her wedding. Laura was the second to get married and Jamee photographed her wedding (I was unfortunately working that day). We were close and we still are.
I was pleasantly surprised when Laura told me she was expecting her third child! Wow! How life ebbs and flows! I was fortunate to have photographed her two other pregnancies, so I insisted on this one as well! It's amazing that no matter where the 3 of us are in our lives, we can just pick up right where we left off and not miss a beat.
To my lovely, lovely girlfriends - You are in my hearts, forever. I love you both so dearly, words could never express how much you mean to me!
With Lots of Love!
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
This is Elliott! I say that very enthusiastically because he is so stinking adorable! After I lost my Quinn last year, I've wanted to ease back in (if at all) to pet ownership. I missed having a dog and so fostering has been fun. It feels really good to just provide a loving and stable environment for dogs that have been mistreated!
He is as of now before I change my mind available for adoption.

Meet Colleen and Joe. I think the quote above fits them to a T.

“Art flourishes where there is a sense of adventure.” ~ Alfred North Whitehead
I recently returned from a 6 week trip to Southeast Asia. I shot over 7700 digital images and 50 rolls of film. To try and describe the amazing wonders, sights, smells, experiences and people that I had met along the way would do a great disservice to them. To try and describe how such a trip has affected me, as a person and an artist, would be a great disservice to myself. All I can say, for right now, is that what an adventure it was! There is only one thing that I am certain of - there will be more trips and adventuring in my very near future! I have been bitten and smitten by the travel bug!
Enjoy! More images to come!
It's only appropriate to post some photos of a great family session from summer while there is snow on the ground! Okay, reality is that I just got back from traveling to Southeast Asia and I'm very behind in updating my blog!
Meet Lisa, Bill and little Blake. We had the most fun during this session running around and Blake was so curious about the tall grasses, tree bark and cozy stream. Enjoy!
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!
