Zac & Christa Marry at Della Terra

What a perfect day yesterday was! Which is exactly what Christa and Zac deserved as they (and the wonderful staff at Della Terra outside of Estes Park) took care of every detail to make it wonderful. Because I love to post photos as soon as possible after the ceremony, I’ll keep words to a minimum and just let you enjoy the photos. Congratulations, Zac and Christa! And thank you for the privilege of documenting you and your family and friends; you both amaze and humble me!  (And a special thanks to Matt M for being a great second shooter!)

Keira & Joshua Marry at McC Ranch

What a wonderful day Friday was! After a summer filled with crazy weather, the sun came out and shone on Keira and Josh’s wedding at the McC Ranch just north of Masonville. Keira and Josh are an amazing couple: so in love and so happy as they celebrated this day with family and friends. They clearly relished every moment of this special day, and I am so honored that I was able to document it for them. I always try to get a few photos posted after the wedding day so the couples can see for themselves how wonderful their day was; with these two I had to include lots more than “a few.”  Congratulations, Keira and Josh!!!!  (And a special shout-out to Keira’s uncle Doug, who assisted me in photographing this incredible day!)



Tina & Matt Marry at Muddy Paw Ranch

Wow. Just wow. I am not even going to try to come up with the right words, as both Tina and Matt said everything so perfectly in their vows. And perfect this day was: the weather, the gnomes and ladybugs, the ceremony, Claire, the food, the crazy performance by the guests. And the bride and groom. Perfect.

So, congratulations, Tina and Matt!! Here are just a few photos randomly chosen with so many, many more to come!! (Special thanks to Joe H for being a fabulous assistant!!)

Keira & Josh at Clear Creek History Park

Spring is officially here (just ignore Saturday’s snowstorm!) and that means it’s time to enjoy the flowers and green grass and gorgeous scenery. But first let’s also celebrate the beauty that is Colorado even in February. Of  course the most attractive part of these photos is the couple, and Keira and Josh made the Clear Creek History Park in Golden come alive during their engagement session. Now that their “Save the Date” cards are mailed, I can share some more photos from this fabulous photo shoot. Congratulations, Keira and Josh! I am so looking forward to your wedding!

Nila and Michael Marry at Grant-Humphreys Mansion

Last night was magical. Nila and Michael were the perfect bride and groom; they were relaxed and so, so joyous with each other.  And even though the sun sets early in February, we managed to get a few photos outside the Grant-Humphreys Mansion before darkness set in. And then we just moved indoors, where the beautiful rooms and decor set the stage for a ceremony that celebrated two cultures. And then the guests celebrated the couple for the rest of the night! Congratulations, Nila and Michael!!

Erika & Eric’s Elopement at City Park

I’m not going to lie. I have photographed more weddings than I can ever count, but have never photographed an elopement before this one. And it was fabulous!!!! First, Erika and Eric were the perfect bride and groom: relaxed, happy, and gorgeous. Darling Marlee added just the right touch of humor and joy to the event. And Officiant Darlene Kelly did a great job as well, adding just the right touch of gravitas to the ceremony while keeping everything enjoyable. I am so, so happy for this wonderful couple. Congratulations!!























Cory & Lizza Marry at Spruce Mountain Ranch

Lizza and Cory are sports enthusiasts (albeit for different teams!) who know when to make the call. Yesterday afternoon the clouds loomed and the rain threatened, but that didn’t keep them from choosing to marry on the side of the mountain above Spruce Mountain Ranch. And their decision proved perfect, as the day turned out to be exactly that.  I cannot even begin to describe how wonderful this day was. So instead of lots of words, I decided to upload lots of photos. (And there are so many more to come!) Thank you, Lizza and Cory, for allowing me to record the special moments of your special day. May the rest of your lives be as joyous as this day was. And a special shout out to Abigail Oxford Kroening, my assistant photographer, whose images also appear on this blog.

Devon and Shawn Marry at Cathedral Pines

I have been looking forward to photographing Devon and Shawn’s wedding since they contacted me a year ago. I’ve known Devon since she was in elementary school with my daughter and instantly liked her fiancé when we met. And we had so much fun at their engagement session, I just knew their wedding day would be special. Because these two people are.  And, boy, are they fun as well!! With a Kansas University themed day and weather that was unbelievably perfect, every detail was came together. Okay, not every detail, as KU lost their football game, but that slowed no one down!  And watching Devon and Shawn with each other made me realize once again that this ceremony, this day, this celebration is amazingly important. Thank you, Shawn and Devon, for allowing me to share these precious memories!




































Faith & Ryan Marry in Grand Lake

There is a really good reason the first shot of this blog is of the wedding rings. And an even better reason to love Faith and Ryan and their wedding day in Grand Lake.  You see, this was a wedding that celebrated family and friends: his, hers, theirs. And fun. And laughter.  Posed photographs? Not so important. Capturing the love everyone has for each other? Crucial. So when Faith’s wedding ring slipped off her finger and disappeared in the scrub brush down near Grand Lake, we scoured the ground to find it. When that effort failed, Faith and Ryan shook it off and went to the reception and celebrated. Truly and fully. And today? They found that precious ring and all is right with the world. How could it not be? Look at the photos and you will see why this day and this couple are so special. Congratulations!!!!

Jon & Lindsay Wed in Henderson

Jon and Lindsay had so much to celebrate yesterday, and so many friends and relatives (who are both fabulous and spectacular!) joined them in their celebration. I had a great time, in large part because they were both so laid back and warm and…just amazingly happy. Thanks, John and Jayceine, for the opportunity to share in this special day. And, congratulations, Jon and Lindsay!  You are an amazing couple, and I am so glad I could capture your special moments. (And thank you to Shane B for being the perfect assistant!)
