Colorado Mountain Wedding Photography | Red Rocks and Evergreen Lake House

A
s I was prepping the photos for today's wedding preview I realized that the couple featured in the first wedding of the season this year has something very sweet in common with the last wedding couple I photographed last season. And that sweet something is a new baby to add to their families. I love photographing new families and it's particularly adorable when it's because mom and dad are getting married! This darling little baby boy shown quite a bit in the picture below is such a little lovebug. He's mastered the art of waving goodbye and it was so hard to restrain myself from pinching those scrumptious little baby cheeks of his. And his mommy and daddy are such a good-looking and loving couple. They were so lucky that their wedding day turned out to be beautiful since it's always a weather risk when getting married in Colorado in the middle of March. It was so sunny and warm on the day of their wedding that I kept thinking I was photographing a summer wedding. They were married at Christ on the Mountain Catholic Church in Lakewood and after the ceremony we headed out to capture some portraits at Red Rocks. Once we finished with those we headed on to the Evergreen lake house where the reception took place. With friends and family at their side and incredibly nice weather it truly couldn't have been a better day to get married! Congratulations to this delightful little family and here's to a bright and happy future for them!

Colorado Family Photography | Devil’s Backbone Open Space in Loveland

O
h my goodness, there are so many adorable baby faces on the blog today. This sweet little baby had his first professional photos taken with mom and dad at a place up in Loveland, Colorado called "Devil's Backbone." This place is appropriately named due to the crazy rocky ridge. We got pretty lucky with a fairly warm day for March sandwiched right between two colder days. This little guy was such a great sport for his photo session, not only looking right at the camera but even giving us some smiles which don't always happen at such a young age. I couldn't be more pleased with how these turned out!

Colorado Men’s Lifestyle Headshot Photography | Lohi Neighborhood in Denver

R
yan contacted me recently needing to get some updated portraits created both for business and personal use. He's been in the Denver metro area since 2012 and is originally from Oregon so he already has enough photos enjoying the great outdoors and mountain settings so we opted to do more of a lifestyle urban headshot session in the city. The plants are just barely starting to blossom (They are sprouting way too early! I'm sure we'll get another big snowstorm. Or at least, I hope that we do!) so it makes sense to photograph in downtown Denver during winter. We decided on meeting at Little Man Ice Cream shop and walked all over the area including across the Platte River to get a good view of downtown Denver. One surprise location that I really loved was Forest Room 5 which despite being around for a long time now I've never had a chance to check out until we were walking in the area. I liked their woodsy vibe in the city so we stopped in for a few quick portraits there. I will definitely be checking out happy hour there soon! I'm pretty pleased with the variety of portraits we were able to create in just over an hour in the area. Check out just a handful of them below.

Newlywed Portrait Photography | Red Rocks at Mount Falcon Morrison, Colorado

O
ver 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!
