Belmar Park engagement portraits :: Melanie + Ben

I took these sweet engagement portraits of Melanie and Ben at Belmar Park and the Lakewood Heritage Center about a week and-a-half ago. We did them at the end of the day, when the sun was slanting through the trees, creating a golden glow. Melanie and Ben are adorable together as you can see — there were so many great pictures of them, I had a hard time narrowing them down for this post! I’m really looking forward to their wedding next month at the Denver Public Library. It’s going to be wonderful!

Shery + Ken

Hot couple alert! Shery and Ken get all dressed up every year for a fancy annual event held by his employer. This year they decided to document their gorgeousness in a series of portraits at the Mining Exchange before heading off to the party. Wowza! Just look at them! They made my job easy!

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!

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!

My best 12 images of 2016!

Colorado Springs wedding photography

I shot my first wedding of 2016 on January 1st, and my last one is this afternoon, December 31st. It’s been an amazing year! I also did tons of portraits: newborn babies, families big and small, couples, high school seniors, and even a dog or two! Here are my best images of the year, month by month. If you’re one of my lovely clients and you don’t see your picture here, don’t feel bad. I chose my best images of the year for this list, not my best clients! (You’re ALL the best!) Not counting yesterday’s wedding and the one I’m doing later today, I delivered 6,840 wedding images and 1,181 portraits in 2016, not to mention all other jobs I did, like head shots, commercial work and fashion stuff! Needless to say, it was tough narrowing all of that down to just 12 images! Enjoy!
