elcome to the journal for April O’Hare Photography! Here you’ll find all of my latest photographic outings with the couples, families, seniors and small businesses that I get to work with and make beautiful photographs for. You may also see a personal post here and there discussing my life or my travels with my teeny family of one husband and three cats! Sometimes I even write advice articles with tips to help make your photo experience better which you can check out under the “Educational” category.  

Take your time and look around! Type in the place where you’ll be getting married in the search box to see if I’ve photographed there before. At the bottom of the page I’ve highlighted some of my favorite sessions and weddings from the past. Grab a drink and have fun going down the photo rabbit hole!

But for this particular trip, we didn’t want to make the cross country drive with […]

I get to share a very special family event on the journal this afternoon. My sister in law, Jordana, just celebrated her bat mitzvah here in Denver. Around 13 years ago, my husband Geoff and I were still in our first year of dating and we were both slowing starting to get to know each […]

Am I the only one who felt like 2018 was both the longest year ever and also the shortest? I have never been overly interested in politics but I think even the most casual observer has to admit that we live in pretty strange times. And for me, politics is the proverbial car wreck that […]

I cannot believe it’s already that time of the year when I sort through all of my favorite photos taken throughout the previous wedding and portrait season to curate my absolute favorite shots from each session and wedding. It’s usually not too difficult to narrow it down to a handful of favorites from each photography […]

I have always wanted to visit Savannah, Georgia and I got it into my head when we acquired our adorable 12 foot trailer, Rapunzel, that we should haul her there and back. We’ve done a long 3 week road trip with Rapunzel before when we drove with her out to upstate New York and back. […]

2015 was a pretty uneventful and quiet year for me. And that’s not at all a bad thing! Now that I’m older and wiser (haha) I realize that uneventful and quiet is just code for “Everything’s coming up roses.” I got my sweet husband and kitties by my side everyday, I’m in good health, and […]
