Jason & Katie Marry at Church Ranch Event Center

Ah, the luck of the Irish! Or at least the luck of a wonderful couple who married on St. Patrick’s Day on the best of days, weather wise and celebration wise as well. Jason and Katie were so much fun to photograph–and watching them revel in their special day made everything even better. From the ceremony itself to the last dance, these two surrounded themselves with dear friends and family and kept us all smiling. Congratulations, Jason and Katie!

Congratulations, Class of 2018!

Oh my, time flies! Just yesterday it seems I was photographing seniors and enjoying their excitement about their last year of high school. Now, with spring and graduation approaching, they are even more excited about the adventures that await them. Still, my favorite time is right before that last year starts, when the flowers are still blooming and senioritis is just an idea instead of a reality. So here, belatedly, are some of my favorite photos of members of the class of 2018.






Love at First Sight

New Year’s Resolution (once again!): Blog! And because I love to theme my blogs, here are a few of my favorite photos of “young” love. Sometimes it s because there is nothing like the love we feel for newborns. And sometimes it is because that joy makes me smile even more than normal. And sometimes I just need to remind myself that with this kind of love, we are all good.



Lauren & David Marry at Hudson Gardens

I loved this wedding! And this couple! And their families and friends! Monday snowstorm that destroyed all the flowers? Who cares? Winds whipping through the venue? Great veil shots! Amazing ceremony and reception? Nailed it!

Thank you, Lauren and David, for this special opportunity to document the beginning of your lives together. The love you share for each other is so clear. Congratulations!!


Lauren & David at City Park

I love posting each couple’s engagement photos (which were often taken months ago) right before the wedding as it reminds us all how far away the actual wedding date seemed at the time. And then. It’s time!! I am so excited to document Lauren and David’s wedding tomorrow!!  For now, let’s remember a simpler time (and a few rehearsal photos just for fun).

Adorable Kids – Part One

Since I am so bad at blogging for each client, I’ve decided once again to “theme” my blogs with some of my favorite photos…AND a few tips about how you can capture the same kinds of photos if you wish.

Tip #1:  Photograph from their level. I’ve really improved my flexibility photographing little ones!

Tip #2:  Put them in an environment (playground, Radio Flyer, leaves to play with) where they can ignore you and just have some fun.

Tip #3:  Place the parents near you so the kiddo can interact with them and respond.

Tip #4:  With older kids, get to know them. Ask them what they want. Show them what you are doing and get feedback.

Tip #5:  Don’t worry about smiles. Some of my favorite photos show serious/puzzled/amazed expressions rather than just smiles. Of course, when you get that smile, it’s priceless!







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!)

Christa & Zac at Clear Creek History Park

I am so excited to photograph Christa and Zac’s wedding! As I began today to organize my gear for their special day, I realized I just wanted to look again at their engagement photos one more time. And seeing their joy just makes me want to photograph their wedding day even more. I’ll be posting those in the next few days, but in the meantime, you can see what I mean. This will be fun!

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!)



Grace at Silo Park

I couldn’t wait to blog about the incredible time I had with Grace (and her wonderful family) this past weekend at Silo Park for her senior photo shoot. First, she is gorgeous. Second, she is delightful. Third, she was willing to try all the poses and locations I threw at her. I never wanted to end this session!  What I also love about these photos (below is just a sampling of the ones we got) is how many different backgrounds are right there at Silo Park: from the silo (duh!) to a little patch of corn to wetlands to a playground to whatever we could possibly want.  Thank you, Ana and AJ, for allowing me the privilege to photograph Grace.
