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.

Just delivered this beautiful album from Eric and Shannon’s Manitou Springs wedding. It’s 20 spreads that flow together perfectly to tell the story of their day. I love it! Shannon and Eric, I hope you enjoy it for years to come, and, many years from now, I hope your children’s children cherish it too!

Colorado Springs senior portraits: Brandon and CJ

senior portraits in downtown Colorado Springs

These gorgeous kids are actually related to me! Brandon is my cousin Efren’s son, and CJ is his wife Crissie’s daughter. (Are you following? They’re step-sibs! I know, I know. My extended family is huge and complicated and I love them all!) I took these portraits last August and have been very remiss about showing them off here. Shame on me! These two have both just graduated from high school and we are all very proud of them. The world’s your oyster, CJ and Brandon, so go forth and seize the day! Carpe diem!
