Manitou Springs wedding :: Alicia + Gabe

Colorado Springs wedding photography

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

Colorado Springs wedding photographer

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!

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!

Eileen + Jason’s gorgeous 1920s wedding at the Cliff House

Colorado Springs wedding photographer Tamera Goldsmith

From Chicago, Eileen and Jason dreamed of getting married somewhere beautiful. What’s more beautiful than the Cliff House at Pikes Peak? Even though they have no ties to Colorado, they decided that it would be the perfect spot to throw an elegant 1920s themed wedding, and they were right. Eileen actually started planning her wedding when she was five, as Jason joked during his touching toast, so not surprisingly every detail was perfect, just as she had dreamed it would be. It was a wonderful day! Congratulations Jason and Eileen!

Cliff House wedding :: Kevin + Rebecca

Cliff House at Pikes Peak wedding

Kevin, Rebecca and their loved ones traveled all the way from Texas to celebrate their wedding at the Cliff House at Pikes Peak. It was such a lovely group of people, and I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a more radiantly happy bride! Just look at that smile! I thoroughly enjoyed documenting this perfect day, surrounded by all that love and happiness!
