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!

The Inn at Hudson Gardens Littleton Colorado Wedding Photography

May 3, 2011

So Friday was Royal Wedding this, Royal Wedding that right?  Well, I admit that I did get up earlier than usual to check out some of the coverage because I am going wedding dress shopping myself here pretty soon and I was curious to see what Kate would wear.  Plus, I just love weddings;) 

William and Kate were not the only happy totally in love pair to be getting married on April 29th 2011 though.  Frank and Sheila also wed that day and they were all smiles all day long.  Seriously, I could barely find any photos where Sheila isn’t beaming and her joy was just infectious!  We started out getting ready over at the Hampton Inn on County Line & Santa Fe (http://www.hamptoninn.com/en/hp/hotels/index.jhtml?ctyhocn=DENLTHX) It was a morning ceremony for just their closest family/friends and everyone else got to show up just a little later to eat some delicious food from A Spice of Life Catering (http://www.aspiceoflife.com/) at the reception.  After the party, Sheila & Frank made their way through a sea of bubbles to ride off to their future together in a beautiful white vintage Rolls Royce from Excursions Limousine Service (http://www.excursionslimos.com/)

I think they just proved that you don’t have to be royalty to have a fairytale wedding.  Huge congrats to the both of them!

Awwww…first dances are my fave. I like that they had an instrumental song. I recognized the music from a movie, but can’t remember what movie it was from. Hopefully they’ll chime in and let us know because it was beautiful!
