Keystone Colorado Mountain Family Photography | Sapphire Point in Summit County

I
t's that time of year when families are reconnecting to spend time with one another over the holidays. This week I had the pleasure of photographing this great family who came out to visit Colorado from Georgia. They've actually been spending time together visiting this state since their children were little but now they're all grown up with their youngest nearly out of the house. I love that they decided to update their family photos in a new location. Some of the best times with family come when you are on vacation together so why not capture the memories during the fun and relaxation of family holidays? We opted for the always gorgeous Sapphire Point location with its mountain views being very hard to beat in this part of Colorado. Unfortunately it's been really dry here with only one decent snowfall so far this year. It certainly made photographing outdoors more bearable but here's hoping a little more of the white stuff comes our way so the families visiting can get some quality time on the slopes too!

Fall Wedding with Superhero Touch | Rustic Backyard Nebraska Farm Ceremony

I
had the pleasure of meeting Kesley and Ryan last fall when we photographed their engagement photos up in Fort Collins. We got to touch a little bit on Ryan's love for superhero comics at that photography session when they both wore Thor tshirts for the old town area. I love that Ryan opted to include all of his groomsmen in on the comic love and each one incorporated a favorite superhero character into their wedding day attire. This time Ryan opted to show off a little Deadpool love with his undershirt and his cufflinks. He also had a really cool Deadpool groom's cake. Even his fun-loving grandpa (who was also his best man) got in on the action with the rest of the guys.  
 
Ryan's mom and her husband were incredibly generous to offer up their family home and farm about an hour outside of Omaha for the festivities. They worked so hard on everything including the food, getting a big reception tent put up, laying out the hay bale seating for the ceremony, as well as figuring out lots of rustic décor. I'm sure that doesn't even come close to all the work they had to put in as a family to make this wedding happen and I know that Ryan and Kesley are so grateful for it. Kesley opted for beautiful red color with some yellow sunflowers throughout the décor due to the fall season and underneath the huge trees of their backyard it all came together perfectly. One of the best parts of hosting a wedding on a real farm is that you can go on a celebratory hay ride after the ceremony and that's exactly what we did. It was really cool to see Ryan share one of his old fun past times with his new bride and all of their friends. As nightfall came they partied out the evening right in front of the garage. Inside the garage the Huskers game was on which I was told was required viewing for hosting a wedding during college football season in Nebraska.  
 
Kesley & Ryan,  
It was been such a blast getting to know you two and witnessing your true love firsthand. Huge congratulations on your new life together! I wish you all the best:)

Denver Maternity Photography | Crown Hill Open Space during Autumn

T
onight as I was finishing up a session in the mountains I got a text from one of my oldest friends, Susan, that she is gearing up to spend the night at the hospital to wait for her baby girl to arrive. I have been meaning to share her beautiful maternity photos on the blog and figured now is a great time to finally get these online. I am so thrilled for her and her husband Joe. It is taking all of my restraint to stay at home and let her relax until tomorrow when I finally will get to meet her sweet lil angel. I forced her and Joe to meet up with me and capture some quick maternity portraits over at Crown Hill Open Space back in early October. I couldn't let her get away with not at least getting a small handful of photos of her beautiful pregnant body. What an incredibly special time in their lives. I'm so excited!!!!

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:)
