Cliff House wedding :: Tiffany + Steve

Steve and Tiffany's wedding at the Cliff House

I have so enjoyed getting to know these two over the last few months, so when the day of Steve and Tiffany’s wedding at the Cliff House in Manitou Springs FINALLY arrived, I was super excited! I couldn’t believe all the pretty little wedding details that they created for their special day (it turns out that Tiffany is REALLY good at this DIY thing — she even made her own bouquet!). The vibe was elegantly rustic. The whole day was laid back and personal, and I had such a wonderful time documenting it all. Congrats you two! Happy honeymoon!

Garden of the Gods wedding in Colorado Springs :: Erin + Michael

Colorado Springs wedding photography

This intensely emotional Colorado Springs wedding was extra special for me, and not just for photography reasons. Michael and Erin were originally planning a great big wedding bash next August in upstate New York. But when Michael’s grandmother’s health recently took a turn for the worse, they made an incredibly generous and sweet gesture: they moved their wedding date up by a year and they came here to Colorado Springs to tie the knot, so she would be able to be there for them. They planned it all in a matter of weeks. Needless to say, it was an extremely emotional afternoon for everyone, including myself. Yes, my tear ducts leaked copiously along with all of Michael and Erin’s loved ones! I’m definitely a crier too, when it comes to situations like these!

Certainly Michael and Erin make a beautiful couple, and it was a joy to photograph their true happiness and profound love. It didn’t hurt that it was also a flawlessly gorgeous, patented Colorado day, with the kind of golden afternoon sunshine and glorious late summer haze that we all know and love so well. Magical, magical light, almost dreamlike, really. Just perfect!

I treasured documenting every emotional moment of this special Colorado Springs wedding at Mothers Chapel in the Garden of the Gods. So much love! Congratulations Erin and Michael! Also, wishing you a very happy honeymoon!

Michael and his grandmother, whom he adores. These photographs speak volumes about their close relationship.

Renewing their vows :: Heather + Ray

Broadmoor wedding

On July 3rd of last year I documented a marriage proposal at the Broadmoor (to see those pictures, click HERE). Exactly a year later I was at the Broadmoor again, this time documenting a renewal of vows for a couple whose wedding I shot there a decade ago. Talk about full circle! I can’t believe ten years have flown by so quickly. So much has changed for Heather and Ray in that time frame (most remarkably, four gorgeous sons!), but what hasn’t changed is their strong love, support and admiration for each other. It was incredibly touching for me to be a part of this day, watching them profess their love for one another again, with their boys witnessing it all. What a wonderful day!
