Denver Colorado Bar Mitzvah Photography | B’nai Chaim Temple in Lakewood

A
round 10 years ago I was toward the beginning of my career as a photographer and I was lucky enough to photograph a family with two incredibly cute young boys near their home on the west side of Denver. Time flies so fast because their oldest son is now 13 and held his Bar Mitzvah celebration over Thanksgiving weekend this year. The ceremony was held at the B'nai Chaim Synagogue in Morrison, Colorado. Saul did a wonderful job with his Hebrew and all eyes were on him throughout the entire ceremony. His family played various roles throughout the ceremony and after it was over they held a short reception with food at B'nai Chaim. We got a few portraits of Saul with his family and friends and reconvened later that afternoon for the more casual party at Dave & Busters in Denver. Guests enjoyed the taco bar, a photobooth, and some great tunes from the DJ there. They even managed to fit all of the guests into one huge circle horah dance and hoisted Saul up onto a chair in the air as is tradition in the Jewish community. Check out some of the highlights from this wonderful day below! And congratulations to Saul on his Bar Mitzvah!

Colorado Golden Anniversary Party | Trinity United Methodist Church in Denver

I
n my 10 years of photographing weddings I've witnessed so many beautiful and heartfelt wedding vows. It is so special that I get to photograph countless couples on one of the happiest days of their lives. I often wonder how they are doing years later. Sometimes I find out that they're expecting children since they come back to me to photograph the young families that they've started. Sometimes I never hear from the couple again. I always hope that they are still living happily ever after together but it's no secret that it's not in the cards for everyone who gets married. And this is why it's such a treat when I meet couples who have been married for as long as Wade and Nancy have. Their daughter, Trudi, hired me to photograph their Golden (50th) wedding anniversary just a couple of days after Christmas at Trinity United Methodist Church which happens to be the oldest church in Denver. The celebration was held on their actual 50th wedding anniversary, December 28th. A big group of their friends and family came from all over to celebrate the huge milestone in their life with them. They married back in 1965 after only 10 days of being engaged and are still going strong all of these years later. It was truly inspiring to see these two together. To me they seemed very much in love and comfortable together. There was a lot of laughter, especially when they got up at the reception and took turns telling their love story to the crowd. You could tell that they enjoyed all of that reminiscing together and Nancy was delighted to finally get the big reception that they never had back in 1965. They even had her wedding dress displayed and it was the most adorable little lace covered short dress that I could definitely still see a bride wearing today! The whole thing was so sweet and I couldn't wait to get home and hug my own husband. The pictures below are just a few of the highlights from the celebration. Enjoy!

Gold Sparkle Photobooth Holiday Party | Denver Colorado Event Photography

I
t's officially holiday season now and that means it's time for parties. I recently set up the open air photobooth at a really fun company holiday party at the Manor House in Littleton for the Boppy Company. The Boppy Company is famous for their half circle nursing pillows that newborn mommies have grown to love. The company has expanded and now sells all kinds of baby products including a skincare line. They are based here in Colorado and held their annual company holiday party over the weekend. The open air photobooth is such a fun addition to a party. Guests get to hold the clicker and take their own photos in front of a large backdrop which can accommodate larger groups than a traditional photobooth is generally able to fit. This year they picked out a gorgeous gold sequin sparkly backdrop which went perfectly with the glittery holiday decor at the Manor House. Here is just a small selection of the fun photos their group took themselves at the party.
