Colorado Snowy Spring Wedding | Arapahoe Basin Ski Resort

W
endy & Phil have been planning their wedding for over a year now and on Saturday it all came together in a winter white wonderland on top of the mountain at Arapahoe Basin. I don't think I've ever photographed such a snowy wedding before. Despite the chill, it turned out just beautifully and was the perfect backdrop for these two avid snowboarders. The guests got to ride up on the Black Mountain Express chairlift and then back down again at the end of the night. Have you ever ridden on a chairlift on a quiet snowy night? It's really quite magical and was the perfect end to a perfect day!

Denver Bridal Photography | Cheesman Park

I
've been wanting to share Wendy's bridal session since the day we did them, but we couldn't risk Phil seeing her before the wedding. Now that they're married, I can happily set this session to "live." It's not too often that I get the chance to photograph a bridal session since they don't seem to be as popular here in Colorado as they are down in the South. So I really get excited when I have the chance to photograph a bride before her wedding day like this. It's really an awesome way for her to get in a little more time wearing the dress (what bride doesn't want to wear it for more than just one day?!) and it can be a pretty useful dress rehearsal too. She can see how she looked in the photos and make last minute changes to her styling if she wants to.  
 
For Wendy's session we used the white pavilion at Cheesman park since I think the classic white pillars go hand in hand with these kinds of photos. It also has a very nice view of the mountains and the grounds are generally pretty clean so that the dress doesn't get too dirty before the wedding day. I think she looks stunning!

Denver Engagement Photography in Downtown Denver Colorado

I
photographed this couple's Denver engagement photography session on Sunday evening and we lucked out with some fantastic weather. Stacy and Tony were such good sports and let me drag them literally all over downtown Denver. We started off near Union Station and made our way up in the bar area of Coors Field and over to the courthouse on Stout Street. Eventually we made our way back over to Larimer Square and ended the session by getting some night photos at the Oxford Hotel. Their adorable German Shepherd dog Max tagged along and he was winning hearts all over the place.  
 
Stacy & Tony,  
I hope you enjoyed yourselves and had a nice dinner when we were done. Lord knows we walked enough to whip up an appetite:) Can't wait to photograph you two again this summer in Breckenridge!
