Best Wedding and Portraits in Colorado 2016 | Denver Photographer Year in Review

W
ow, it's already New Year's Eve and and I find myself compiling all of my favorite images created for clients throughout the year. This is one of my favorite blog posts to create every year because I get to look back and remember all of the wonderful people I've met. I'm so thankful for what I do and for the trust that is placed in me to capture these family memories for so many. I want to thank all of my clients from 2016 and from year's past for your business. Here's to a 2017 as good as 2016!

Colorado Engagement Season | Wedding Proposal Lesbian Couple at Mount Falcon

'
Tis the season for wedding engagements! I read somewhere once that 40% of people propose between November and February due to the holidays. Today I have a very special proposal photo session because my little sister, Gabby proposed to her love, Meghan. Some of you long time readers might recognize Gabby because she often works as my assistant at weddings. I'm so excited that she gets to start planning her own special wedding day. If she's anything like me, she'll be inspired by all of the awesome couples that we've photographed throughout the years. One perk of being in the wedding industry is getting to see first hand cool little touches that other couples have done for their wedding day and picking and choosing from the wide variety of neat ideas for your own wedding.  
 
Gabby asked if we could figure out a way to photograph her proposal back in November and I of course wanted to make this happen for her. So we told Meghan that we were just doing a really quick session to get a Christmas card photo of the family together. We had it all planned ahead that after we did the family pictures I'd set up a photo of the two of them alone in front of a pretty background and then Gabby could make her move. I made sure the kiddos were standing near me so they could see it happen too. It worked perfectly and Meghan had no idea this was coming.  
 
Congratulations to my little sis and the special woman in her life! And congratulations to all of the other happy couples out there getting engaged this season too!  
Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah, and Happy New Year to all!

Colorado Engagement Photography | Autumn at South Mesa Trail in Boulder

N
ext September I get to photograph these two adorable humans on their wedding day at Sapphire Point up at Dillon Reservoir. The mountain view there is pretty epic due to the gorgeous blue snow-capped Ten Mile range from Breckenridge. So when Lindsay told me that she and Coty were planning to drive out from Kansas to get their engagement photos done I wanted to give some ideas that were pretty but different from what they'll see on their wedding day. They ended up choosing the South Mesa Trail just outside of Eldorado Springs in the foothills of Boulder. We went at the tail end of the fall color but this trail boasts its own lovely mountain views and the range here is like the more rugged burly cousin to Colorado's majestic high country mountains. They're not quite as big but definitely pack a punch! Plus, it threatened to storm a bit so even though it didn't deliver any real precipitation we were gifted with beautiful sunset stormy skies as a cherry on top to the photo session. I couldn't be happier with how these turned out. Thank you, Lindsay & Coty for coming out for your photos. I hope you had fun on your quick jaunt to Colorado! I hope I get to meet Lola next time:)

Denver Engagement Photographer | Fall Foliage at South Mesa Trail in Boulder

I
first met Ryan when I did his extended family's photos a couple of summers ago and his cousin's wedding too. It's his turn to get married now and I feel so lucky that he and his fiancĂ©, Katie, chose me to photograph their wedding next summer at Church Ranch Event Center in Broomfield. I have never photographed there before and can't wait to check it out. But first, Katie and Ryan wanted to get some nice autumn engagement photos with some pretty fall color for their save the dates. We met up at the always gorgeous South Mesa Trail right outside of Eldorado Springs, Colorado. Like I said, this trail is pretty year-round due to the gorgeous mountain views, but in the fall it explodes into a field of color. It's one of the only places I know of that has some nice deep red color in the foliage. I was very pleased to see that it was in full swing when we arrived. We also got super lucky that evening with a really cool dramatic sunset sky complete with a fiery reddish pink glow just behind the dark blue clouds. It made for very nice contrast to all of the fall colors on the ground. Check out their full set below!
