Hillside Gardens wedding :: Sonja + Greg

Hillside Gardens wedding

A perfect day for a Hillside Gardens wedding! Greg and Sonja’s celebration happened on the first really warm day of the year, and we were surrounded by flowers, love and happiness, all with a fabulous vista of Pikes Peak and the Front Range in the background. The lilacs were in full bloom and the scent was intoxicating! But Sonja was even more intoxicating in her beautiful lace gown. You can see how in love Greg is, just look at the expression on his face as she walked up the aisle!

I always jump at the chance to document a Hillside Gardens wedding. It’s one of my favorite Colorado Springs wedding venues. The view never disappoints! This was truly an international celebration. Sonja is from Germany and Greg is from Russia, and their closest friends and family came from all over, as you can imagine, to join in their special day. It was definitely a tri lingual kind of party! Also present was their sweet rescue pup, Blue, who served as the ring bearer. I just love that. Blue did great! What a good boy!

Congratulations Sonja and Greg! It was the best day!

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!

Hillside Gardens wedding :: Kelly + Bill

Hillside Gardens wedding Colorado Springs

I so enjoyed documenting this intimate Hillside Gardens wedding in Colorado Springs! Bill, who is a friend of mine, and Kelly, whom I’m just getting to know (and already adore), had a morning ceremony with a grand view of Pikes Peak for their backdrop. Afterward, they celebrated it all with a backyard reception at a good friend’s home on the west side.

Bill’s a fairly inscrutable guy but he sure smiled a lot that day, and Kelly was downright radiant. Just look at her! Beautiful, perfect Hillside Gardens wedding and the cutest couple ever! Congrats you two!
