Colorado Springs elopement :: Kim + Chris

I sometimes get asked if I do small weddings, and my answer is that I love small weddings! I especially love elopements, when it’s just me, the officiate and the happy couple. It’s the sweetest! Oftentimes it’s a couple like Kim and Chris, who are in their fifties, each with grown children, and taking a second chance at love and lifetime commitment. They opted to get married at a private spot in Palmer Park that had a beautiful view of the mountains and the city. As you can see, they’re madly in love! Congratulations Chris and Kim!

Renewal of Vows at the Broadmoor :: Jen + Nick

Nick and Jennifer commemorated their tenth wedding anniversary with a low key renewal of vows at the Broadmoor’s charming and rustic Fish House on the day after Thanksgiving, with their nearest and dearest family members all there to celebrate the landmark occasion alongside them. A decade after their Texas nuptials, Jen and Nick are now the parents of three beautiful boys, and another one is on the way! Their renewal of vows was simple and beautiful, not really a ceremony but each of them speaking about their love story and their shared life, as their guests listened and their rambunctious sons played. It was incredibly sweet and moving, and I was honored to have been the one chosen to document it all.

Fashion Editorial for Safron Boutique

I did a fabulous fashion editorial for Safron Boutique at the end of November, and I really love how the pictures came out! If you’re not familiar with Safron, let me just sum it up by saying they have the most edgy, unique clothes in the city and you should really get over there and do some shopping! You can find them in Old Colorado City, at 2511 West Colorado.

A Different Kind of Portrait

When Jessica, owner ofย Root: Center for Yoga & Sacred Studies, approached me about doing portraits to complement the book she’s been working on about her yoga practice, she was careful to explain that she didn’t want the same old “doing yoga in the woods” photos, she wanted something more evocative. The images sheย had in mind had more to do with the emotions and philosophy of her practice, and she and I spent quite a bit of time brainstorming wardrobe, styling and locations so we could accomplish what she wanted. We actually took these in April (I’m a little behind on sharing them, having spent most of my summer and fall working on weddings). I think these images are beautiful! We were both very happy with the results and will be continuing her project with another photo shoot soon!
