Spring wedding at the Cliff House :: Cierra + Zach

Zach, Cierra and their loved ones came all the way from Minneapolis to tie the knot in beautiful Colorado. As luck would have it we had a dusting of snow the night before, so the Garden of the Gods was looking extra pretty for their portraits. Cierra wore a pair of gorgeous blue velvet shoes that she bought a few years ago and kept at the ready for her future wedding. She also wore her grandmother’s vintage fur capelet, which was a lovely personal touch. She was pretty as a picture! Zach, you’re a lucky guy!

I’m a Best of the Springs 2018 winner!

I’m very honored to have been voted the Bronze Winner in the Gazette’s annual Best of the Springs issue under the Fine Arts Photographer category! My formal education is in art and art history, and hopefully this influence comes through in the images that I create in my wedding and portrait work. THANK YOU to the kind people who nominated me and who took the time to vote for me! I am pleasantly surprised, grateful and humbled!

Dania + Connor

The 2018 wedding season officially kicked off for me last Saturday with Dania and Connor’s tiny wedding at one of my favorite little churches, the Mothers Chapel in Garden of the Gods. The ceremony was strictly a family affair, which makes sense because the Mothers Chapel can’t hold more than about 15 people! I love tiny weddings like this. It was so much fun just being a small part of this happy day, and we got some great pictures!

Maternity portraits :: Eboni + Michael

I did Eboni’s high school senior portraits about nine years ago, and we’ve stayed in touch since then via Facebook. I was over the moon when she contacted me to do maternity portraits for her and her husband, Michael. I don’t know who’s more excited about this baby, me or them! We did a few poses at my studio, then headed to Ute Valley Park for the rest. Look how adorable they are! They’re going to have such a beautiful baby!
