Shelby & Christian’s beautiful, heirloom wedding album

Garden of the Gods Club wedding

I delivered this gorgeous, heirloom album to Shelby and Christian a couple of weeks ago from their Garden of the Gods Club wedding. It’s 9×12″ and twenty custom-designed spreads. They loved it! And since they’ve officially started a family, Christian and Shelby have something truly special to hand down to their children now. How wonderful!

Briarhurst Manor wedding :: Kim + Roy

Briarhurst Manor wedding

Kim and Roy’s Briarhurst Manor 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!

Garden of the Gods Club wedding :: Shelby + Christian

Colorado Springs wedding photographer Tamera Goldsmith (www.clickphotography.net).

Shelby and Christian’s wedding at the Garden of the Gods Club was simply a perfect day! This was not just a happy blending of families, it was also a blending of two cultures: Filipino and American. I love shooting Filipino weddings because I’m half Filipino myself, and it’s nice to hear that particular accent and way of speaking. It reminds me of home and family.

Though it was love at first sight, Christian and Shelby’s relationship has had a six year gestation period, so friends and family were thrilled to gather for this joyous occasion. Shelby was simply stunning in her 1930s-styled gown. This wedding at the Garden of the Gods Club was everything they had hoped for, and the reception at the Briarhurst Manor was bumpin’ too! Everyone had a blast, including me. Congrats Christian and Shelby! What a fun day!

A woodland themed wedding shoot at the Edgewood Inn

Edgewood Inn wedding photography

These Edgewood Inn wedding pictures are from an impossibly dreamy styled shoot that I did there a about week ago. I love the idea of a woodland wedding! These ethereal images were created in collaboration with Rhonda Nichols Floral Design and with Bridal Elegance, at the beautiful, rustic Edgewood Inn in Woodland Park. Their contributions to this group effort were absolutely to die for and I absolutely loved everything! Stunning! Jordyn, who is simply exquisite, modeled simple, flowy and feminine gowns, and the design theme featured subtle, woodsy colors like moss green, taupe, claret and eggplant. Just gorgeous! Enjoy these Edgewood Inn wedding pictures, and be inspired!

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.
