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!

Summertime Family Photography at the University of Denver

September 9, 2012

I met Elizabeth aka Queen Elizabitch (haha, love her derby name!) at the Rocky Mountain Rollergirls.  She and her man Jed are magnificent photobooth picture takers as seen in this photo from my wedding in May:

Colorado Wedding photobooth Queen, you’re so punk!

She asked me if I could take some photos of her family while her parents were out here visiting from South Dakota and of course I said yes.  Due to it being Labor Day we changed plans to meet at City Park or Wash Park and switched to the University of Denver at the last minute in hopes of avoiding the holiday crowds.  I think the plan worked well and DU is looking awfully pretty this year.  Her niece Annika is one of the most adorable little girls I’ve ever photographed.  She is a bundle of fun with a very outgoing personality.  Of course, any kid who thinks I’m hilarious is a winner in my book:)


Hope you guys love the photos.  Thanks to your whole family and Jed for forcing you guys to all be romantic by the white roses:)  Hopefully you will all think it was worth it.
