Today's journal entry is featuring a cute family from Arizona. They were out visiting Colorado for a quick trip while dad was on leave from the military and they wanted to get some nice photos taken somewhere in Colorado Springs. It's really hard to beat the beauty of Garden of the Gods so we went there for the evening. It helps that it's also very convenient to get to. We drove all over the park to get different views and I think we came away with some really grand photos due to the dramatic rock formations we used as backdrops. I really love the way the jagged red rock formations stack up in front of the blue mountains in the distance.
If you are planning a trip out to Colorful Colorado with your family consider updating your family portraits while you are out here. I grew up here in Colorado and can help your family find a beautiful place for your photos and will help you with all of the details.

Alittle over a week ago I had the pleasure of driving up to the mountains of Colorado for Becky and Sean's wedding at the Lodge & Spa at Breckenridge. That venue is an incredible place to host a wedding. They have a huge wooden deck with incredible views of the mountains and the ski slopes of Breckenridge Ski Resort. On the day of Becky and Sean's wedding we were blessed with the kind of Colorado winter day that inspires out of towners to move here. Bright blue skies, huge piles of pretty snow all over the place, and warm sunshine hitting our faces. Most of their guests were friends and relatives visiting Colorado from out of state and I was happy for their sake that it was a week with nice weather and they could enjoy our great outdoors. Becky's dad told me he got to go skiing four times already that week and was planning to hit the slopes one more time the next day before leaving. As you can imagine, it was the kind of wedding where everyone got to enjoy time together before officially connecting their two families for the wedding celebration. The boys prepped themselves in one of the big cabin houses on site at the Lodge and the gals had a bridal suite inside the hotel. Sean waited to see his bride until he was standing on the stage at the Agape Outpost and it was so moving to see the emotion on his face as she walked closer to him. Capturing people in love seeing each other for the first time on their wedding day (whether it's at the actual ceremony or at a first look) is definitely one of my favorite parts of this job. The celebration continued at the Lodge and Spa with guests enjoying the spectacular view on the deck during cocktail hour. We even managed to fit in an adorable family photo of Becky, Sean, and their two cute Chihuahua dogs before heading on to the reception. It was a really fun day and another great wedding is in the books!

One of my favorites of the newly married couple:)
Today's journal entry is featuring another super cute couple with an incredibly loveable dog to match. Jess and Joe met up with me at Civic Center park right in the heart of Denver for their engagement photos. I really love the huge white classic columns there. They brought along Landon, their sweet goldendoodle doggie and we had a great time walking around the park and over to Larimer Square for their urban winter photos. We made sure to get some pretty photos with the overhead street cafe lights of Larimer Square which is one of my favorite places to take couples at sunset. The glowing lights make one of the prettiest backdrops in all of downtown Denver. And we also made use of the cool alley right next door too. Jess & Joe are such a laidback, nice couple. Plus they are super photogenic. I can't wait to see what we create in the art district at Artwork network this fall at their wedding:)
Kristin contacted me earlier this year to see if we might be able to get together for pictures with her husband, Manish and their adorable pug, Hoppy (short for Hopscotch) for photos to celebrate their first anniversary. They got married last year in Connecticut and never got engagement photos done so this was a great opportunity to get some engagement style pictures. She was specifically looking for something vivid and I think we were able to capture some incredible color even with it being winter and a ton of snow on the ground. And boy was there snow! Poor Manish accidentally stepped into a hidden puddle toward the beginning of our session but he was a champ and managed to last through the rest of the photoshoot. I'm so happy he was able to continue on because the mountains looked so pretty and blue at the South Mesa Trail near Boulder. And their outfits matched perfectly with the winter scenery. I love when my clients bring their furry family members to their sessions. Hoppy was such a little sweetheart. She trotted all through the heavy snow for most of the session and didn't need to be carried until the very end. What a little lovebug she is! Congratulations to this great couple on their first year of marriage!
