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!

Pinery at the Hill wedding

What a beautiful Pinery at the Hill wedding! I have to admit that this one was extra special for me. Gundi is a personal friend, and I’ve been getting to know Rolly these last few months. She couldn’t have chosen a nicer guy. He adores her, and they are perfect together!

I think the Pinery at the Hill is one of the nicest places for a wedding in Colorado Springs. Not only is the venue itself beautiful, the view over our downtown is quite spectacular. So I was pleased when the two of them chose me to document their Big Important Day there. Gundi incorporated Latvian wedding traditions into the details, and sentimentally wore her late mother’s vintage jewelry, which was beautiful.

All in all, it was simply a wonderful day and I had the best time making these pictures! You could really feel the love! Thanks for everything, Gundi and Rolly! Congratulations and happy honeymoon!
