Dan has been friends with my husband, Geoff since they were in middle school. They were even in a band together! Today I get to share some photos of Dan with his lovely fiancée, Jen who also went to school with both of them in high school although I don't believe the three of them knew each other well back then. But, that's where facebook steps in. Dan and Jen reconnected with the social service (I have a soft spot for this sort of thing since Geoff and I met on Myspace!) and started talking to each other online first. Now they're engaged to be married this June at Arrowhead Golf Club in Littleton. For their engagement pictures they decided to go for something a little different from the dramatic red rocks of Arrowhead and went for the pretty spring blossoms at Hudson Gardens. The flower beds are still working their way through all of the spring snowstorms we've been getting so there wasn't much there but the gardens were incredibly green and there were still some pretty flower blossoms on the trees and bushes that we took full advantage of! I also love their new-ish red barn that they built on the west side of the gardens. I have no idea if they plan to use it as a wedding venue there but for now it certainly makes for some pretty rustic backdrops. And although it wasn't easy finding the perfect spot to get the mountain views we eventually found a place at the gardens where we were able to get that as well. It was pretty awesome getting to hang out with the two of them and see how comfortable they are in each other's arms. I can't wait to witness their vows to each other this summer!
Hard to pick a favorite, but I love this one!
Over the weekend I had a session scheduled with Alison and her husband Gabriel at the Mount Falcon east trail head in Morrison, Colorado. I was a little worried because the weather report was saying that it might be pretty windy and wind is definitely my least favorite weather element to work with when it comes to photography. Sure, a little soft breeze to gently blow someone's hair looks pretty awesome but we all know the misery that is a full on windy day here during March in Colorado. When I arrived the sky was looking pretty dramatic with lots of clouds and I was sure the wind was going to pick up but we actually got really lucky and it stayed fairly calm. Calm enough for us to work with it anyway. Alison and Gabriel are newlyweds and just got married in January this year. They wanted to get some pictures to celebrate their new life together and next month we'll meet up again to photograph the whole family together. For now, I hope they enjoy all of these lovely romantic photos of the two of them together.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
Igotta admit, I'm pretty excited about the latest engagement photo session I did with Kelly and Kael on Monday afternoon. We met on Friday and I was telling them how much I like to go to downtown Denver for photo shoots when it's winter time because it's easier to find some color to incorporate into the pictures in an urban landscape than a dry dead winter landscape. And luckily they went with my suggestion. Larimer Square is definitely high up on my favorite locations list because those strings lights at dusk with a beautiful blue sky behind them are hard to beat in the beauty department. I arrived early since it's been awhile since I photographed in this area so I could scope it out and see what's new, what's still looking great etc... and decided to walk down by the Cherry Creek path to see if there was anything interesting going on down there. It was actually a last minute decision and I didn't have a lot of time before I was supposed to meet up with Kelly and Kael but I was shocked to find one of the prettiest pieces of public artwork I think I've ever seen. My good friend who teaches at Auraria let me know that this particular mural is called "City of the Sun" by Gemma Danielle. (Perfect name for Denver, btw) Looking at it I was reminded of how much I used to love playing with my spirograph when I was a kid! I jogged back over to our meeting point and when I saw them walking over literally wearing the exact perfect clothing to go with the wall I couldn't believe how lucky I am. Kelly and Kael brought their super cute doggies with them and we had a lot of fun wrangling them for pictures. (Shout out to their giraffe squeaky toy and to Kael's mom and husband for helping us create these pictures!)
Kelly and Kael,
Thanks for being weirdly psychic with your outfit choices and for the good time at your session! I'll be in touch with your full gallery soon!
Gemma Danielle Be sure to check out the art on her website!
My favorite:) Kelly has a wonderful laugh!

Wow, 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!
