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!

She’s planning to use the photos for her baby shower invitations which I love and think is an awesome idea. We were originally […]

Becky is one of my oldest friends. We met forever ago in high school marching band where she played the flute very well and I played the clarinet quite badly, haha. We didn’t know anything about football back then so we would spend the entire game going over SNL skits like the Ambiguously Gay Duo […]

This one might be my favorite:) Some of you may recognize these two good-looking faces featured today. Brandon is my husband’s youngest brother and Lauren is his wife and I’ve enjoyed photographing them through life’s biggest events so far. We did their engagement photos together, their wedding pictures, and they’ve even recently bought their first […]

It’s Queen Elizabitch for inquiring minds out there. Queenie came to Rocky Mountain Rollergirls first and later Jed joined as […]

Tonight 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 […]

About five years ago I photographed a wedding in front of one of the most breathtaking views I’ve seen in all of Colorado. Jenn and Joe had selected Piney River Ranch near Vail for their wedding. There is a photo we created of them as the sun set in front of that gorgeous mountain view […]
