Carol + Andrew’s heirloom wedding album

Presenting Carol and Andrew’s wedding album! Notice the date on the spine. This just goes to prove that it’s never too late forĀ  a beautiful, archival, custom-designed heirloom. Almost seven years have passed since their wedding, and these days Andrew and Carol are parents to three lively little ones. Now they’ll have an heirloom full of sweet memories to hand down to their kids or grandkids some day. I love that.

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!

Briarhurst Manor wedding :: Kim + Roy

Briarhurst Manor

Kim and Roy’s wedding over Labor Day weekend was so sweet! Only about forty of their closest friends and family were present. Roy and Kim each brought two children into this new union, so now they make a family of six! I love doing weddings at the Briarhurst in September. It’s the most gorgeous time of year, and Mother Nature did not disappoint, bathing everything in a warm, golden late afternoon glow. So beautiful! Congratulations Kim and Roy, it was a wonderful day!

Briarhurst Manor wedding

Sara and Zoheb’s June wedding in Manitou Springs was so full of love and laughter that my cheeks hurt from smiling by the end of the night. What an incredibly nice, fun and down-to-earth bunch of people. I wanted to hug them all! I hope you enjoy these pictures as much as I enjoyed taking them. You can really see all that happiness shining through!
