Renee and Mike were married at the beautiful and “very Colorado” Arrowhead Golf Club. Renee also wanted pictures with some architecture and a bit of fashion style to them (and I love that style too). We headed to Denver to for a post-wedding bridal session to get just that:
Here’s the results of a fun session in Downtown Denver. A friend (Dale) and I went out to get some fun shots of her daughter Jamie. Thanks Jamie – enjoy!
I love the mood of this shot with the contrasting dark background:
Renee and Mike were married at the beautiful Arrowhead Golf Club on the lucky day of 7-7-07. The conditions looked quite different than the engagement session we did earlier in the year at the nearby and snow-covered Roxborough State Park. The wedding was a blast, but WOW, the time just flew by. I always enjoy looking back over the photos from weddings and brining back the emotion and memories.
I’ve always loved fireworks. I guess for me it is one of those things I won’t out-grow. I prefer to take photos of fireworks from different locations each July 4th and New Years, if my schedule permits. This year I took photos at the Southlands Mall (which is now where I do studio work as well). Here’s a couple samples:
Teresa and Patrick had a beautiful wedding at the Lodge and Spa at Breckenridge. The weather was great with the heat not being as intense as it was in Denver. The blue sky was decorated with puffy white clouds as a nice backdrop over the mountains as the wedding unfolded.
Family and friends came in from all over the country. It was great meeting so many friendly people and being there to capture the day.
Teresa and Patrick made it to town just days before their Breckenridge wedding and we decided to do their engagement photos at Denver Botanic Gardens. The forecast called for rain but it held out long enough for us to get some fun shots:
Liana and Brady were married at Ellis Ranch in Loveland, Colorado. What better-named city is there for a wedding? For those that don’t know, Loveland has had a popular “re-mailing” program allowing people to mail their valentine through Loveland and have it stamped with the Loveland postmark.
Given that Ellis Ranch is, after all, a ranch, what better footwear than a nice set of boots (well, at least for a few photos):
I’ve had the opportunity to photographed people in body paint a number of times. Here’s a recent shot of Christa just before she went on stage to perform at a local club:
Jade and Randy were in town for just a few days. They hired me to photograph their wedding later this year, and we did their engagement photos they day after our first meeting. We met at Cheeseman Park in Denver. It had been raining just a bit before our session. I like the shot below where the sun was breaking through the cloudy sky:
I recently returned from Las Vegas where I attended the 2007 WPPI conference (that’s short for Wedding & Portrait Photographers International). This is an annual conference attended by thousands of photographers each year. What happens when you put lots of photographers together? Well, you get lots of pictures, of course!
There were the usual Las Vegas sights to be seen, but we also went around getting some engagement-style photos of a model by the name of Cecilia and her future husband, Patrick. Thanks guys, it was a blast! When I say “we” I don’t mean thousands of us – this was just a small group doing our own thing.
We headed up to the lake house in Evergreen for Liana and Brady’s engagement photos. Were had been discussing options on where to do the photos and I suggested this location based on the type of photos Liana and Brady wanted. What a surprise to learn that this was in fact where Brady proposed to Liana. I hope it makes these photos that much more special.
Here’s one of my favorite silhouettes. I love the cloudy sky and the perfect separation outlining Liana and Brady, giving it just the right mood and detail.
