Renewal of Vows at the Broadmoor :: Jen + Nick

Broadmoor wedding

Nick and Jennifer commemorated their tenth wedding anniversary with a low key renewal of vows at the charming, rustic Broadmoor Fish House on the day after Thanksgiving. Only their very nearest and dearest family members were present to celebrate the landmark occasion alongside them. A decade after their Texas nuptials, Jen and Nick, who have been together since high school,  are now the parents of three beautiful, adorable boys. And guess what — another son is on the way! Their renewal of vows was simple and beautiful, not really a ceremony so much as each of them speaking honestly about their love story and their shared life, as their guests listened and their rambunctious little guys played. We were lucky to have such a beautiful and sunny day for this special event, with the nearby foothills dusted with a light coating of snow. The light was perfect!

All in all it was an incredibly perfect, sweet and moving morning at the Broadmoor Fish House, and I was honored to have been the one chosen to document it all. Happy tenth anniversary, Jen and Nick! Here’s to many more decades of happiness!

Fashion Editorial for Safron Boutique

Colorado fashion photography

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 of 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 she 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!

Green Mountain Falls wedding :: Marcea + Mark

rock and roll wedding Colorado Springs

Not that I don’t love a big, traditional wedding, but it’s fun to get an outside-the-box couple like Marcea and Mark every now and then! It’s also extra lovely when they happen to be friends of mine (well, Mark’s technically a new friend, but I give Marcea my full approval on him  ). They were married in a small ceremony at the historic gazebo in Green Mountain Falls, on a beautiful, sunny fall day, and they stayed true to themselves down to their matching Doc Martens. I don’t think I’ve ever had a bride in black before. Marcea looked perfect! Congratulations to the bride and groom, you were made for each other Marcea and Mark! Smooches!
