Ihad the pleasure of photographing this adorable couple this evening. They have been married for 7 years and recently moved to Denver from Oklahoma. This is their first year being away from their family for the holidays so they thought it might be nice to get some photos taken to share their life here in Denver with their family. We went to City Park and I was happy to see that there were still a few trees in the park holding their leaves. I'm still in denial that winter is approaching and wish that Autumn could last just a little longer. We finished up on the east side of the park so that we could get the pretty view of the Denver skyline with the mountains behind it. And I was glad that we were able to get some decent photos with the sunset despite the heavy cloud coverage.
I LOVE how this one turned out. I have seen these trees full of birds nests near the Denver Zoo at City Park so many times but never bothered to get a shot with them. But when I saw the sky with the pink and purple in it I had to give it a try:)
Have I ever mentioned how much fun it is to photograph in a new place? Saturday afternoon I found myself driving up I-25 to get to Devil's Backbone which is this pretty open space trail area just west of Loveland. I was meeting up with Katelynn & Jake who are getting married next summer. They are hosting their reception in my hometown of Longmont at the DBarn. They wanted some pretty autumn photos and I think this location definitely delivered on that. They also brought their totally lovable and GIGANTIC french mastiff Sully. Seriously, these photos do not do justice to the sheer size of Sully. He's like 100+ pounds of pure energy and love:) While I enjoyed photographing the three of them together, I was really pleased with how natural and romantic Katelynn and Jake were in front of the camera when it was just the two of them. I am still getting to know them but to me they seemed to compliment each other very well. Katelynn is this super fun bubbly gal who makes lots of jokes and Jake is a little more reserved and stoic. One thing that was clear for anyone who sees them is how in love they are:)
Man's best friend:)
One of the best things about my line of work is getting to see families grow and evolve. I photographed Jen and Pascal's wedding a couple of years ago and last winter they welcomed an adorable baby girl into their lives. I feel lucky that I've been along for the ride and they now have a nice collection of photos of their puppy Milo, maternity photos, newborn shots as well as the engagement photos and wedding pictures. Their baby girl has grown so much and she's now sporting a full head of pretty red hair. We met up at the Aspen Glen Golf Club which is such a photogenic golf course community in Carbondale just outside of Aspen. We were able to get some photos with a lovely view of Mount Sopris in the background as well as some with colorful fall foliage.
Jen & Pascal,
Thank you for letting me photograph your adorable family! This one might be my favorite session of ours yet:)
Ifirst met Liz when she was a bridesmaid in a wedding I photographed back in 2011. We met up awhile ago to discuss her wedding and as soon as she mentioned that she might want to incorporate a little bit of 1920's vintage flair I got very excited. I am a big fan of Downton Abbey and I love vintage styled weddings. So I've been looking forward to her wedding day for quite awhile! She did a great job incorporating the 20's style (my favorite probably being her very pretty and unique veil and her long drop earrings). Liz and her groom, John also used two very pretty locations on their wedding day. They married in a Catholic mass at Saint Catherine of Siena in North Denver. Later the reception was held at the Cherry Creek Marina & Yacht Club on the Cherry Creek Reservoir. I actually didn't realize that Denver had any good wedding locations on the water since we don't have many lakes but the Yacht club totally fit the bill with picturesque boats tied up at the dock right outside of the reception hall. With the fall foliage added in it was a beautiful place to host a wedding reception.
Liz & John,
Congratulations on a beautiful wedding day. Hope you two had a blast in Hawaii. I have many more photos to get over to you and I'll be in touch soon to do that!

Look at this lil guest getting into the spirit of a vintage wedding:)
It was hard for me to pick a favorite from this wedding, but this one stands out to me because of those beautiful fall leaves.
