Ute Valley Park engagement portraits :: Christina + Josh

This cute couple is getting married in August! I took Josh and Christina’s engagement portraits on one of those perfect, sunny days that we sometimes get in the middle of winter. They wanted a very outdoorsy, Colorado-y look to their pictures, but they also wanted some dressier, more urban ones too, so we started in Ute Valley Park and then headed downtown. I just love how these came out! I can’t wait for August 5th!

Kira’s First Year album

Am I good about taking pictures of the lovely, custom albums I create for my clients? Yes. Am I good about sharing those pictures? No! I’m terrible, actually! I admit it! Here’s a sweet album I delivered months ago. I documented Kira’s first year from baby bump on, and it was so much fun watching her grow. Designing the album is always bittersweet, and handing it over to my clients even more so. But I know that this book will become more and more of a treasure to them over the years, as Kira starts school and grows tall and learns to drive and goes to college. Babyhood is a mere blink of an eye. I’m so glad to be able to capture these sweet moments for my clients!

Ute Valley Park engagement portraits :: Christina + Josh

I just got home from Las Vegas, where I spent the last few days immersed in a photography conference. The first thing I did today was process these cute engagement portraits of Christina and Josh, which we took just before my trip. I love these pictures! Here’s a personal favorite. I’ll post more later!

Manitou Springs wedding :: Alicia + Gabe

Gabe and Alicia’s New Year’s Eve wedding at the Cliff House was so tiny, the grand total of people present, excluding myself, was only eleven! At first they had planned on casually tying the knot at the courthouse, but Alicia’s mom thought it would be nice if the nearest and dearest could be present, so the event “grew legs” so to speak. Still and all, it was an extremely low key, intimate and happy celebration and a great way to finish off 2016! All the best, Alicia and Gabe! Congratulations!

Cliff House wedding :: Maura + Wes

Cute couple Wes and Maura were married at the Cliff House on December 30th. We had beautiful weather for the day, but an even more beautiful bride! Just look at how much Maura is smiling and laughing in these pictures! Of course Wes is madly in love with her, as he should be. Their late afternoon ceremony was a blend of Christian and Jewish traditions, and took place under a chuppah covered with a quilt handmade by Grandma. So sweet! The party was crazy fun, too  — the dance floor was bumpin’ all night. I had such a blast documenting Wes and Maura’s big day. Congratulations, you two! Happy honeymoon!
