Kelsey + Dan – Denver Country Club Wedding – Denver Colorado Wedding Photographer

Even before I walked into the Denver Country Club, my jaw dropped when I saw the beautiful reception tent. I might of even danced a little bit when I saw my favorite chairs. Yes,  I nerd out over nice chairs. Throughout the day, I didn’t stop dancing. Kara of Kara Pearson Photography invited me to help her photograph the wedding of Kelsey + Dan, and I’m so grateful to have been a part of such a beautiful day. One new thing I learned about is a Southern Tradition of burying a bottle of bourbon! You can read more about it below:

Teri Ann + Ryan – Rocky Mountain National Park Elopement Wedding – Estes Park, Colorado

It was normal Colorado Mountain weather, sporadic rain clouds with pockets of beautiful blue skies. But those little rain clouds weren’t going to stop Teri + Ryan from getting married that day. After 8 years, they knew this was the perfect time for them. They drove down from Iowa with their close friends and family in tow. 

Elopements are a photographers dream (or at least my dream!), we spend time photographing the sweet ceremony and then have the opportunity to drive around and explore a beautiful place – no stress, just beautiful couples portraits. Congratulations Teri + Ryan! And thank you for sharing that Summer Shandy with me, thats now my favorite seasonal airport drink! 😉

Ashleigh + Shannon – Horsetooth Reservoir Engagement Session – Fort Collins, Colorado

Ashleigh + Shannon are Colorado locals that love music, craft beers + nature. Basically, all of the best stuff Colorado has to offer. So when we met up for their engagement session out here in Fort Collins, we tried to make their engagement session filled with those three things. Well, the beer part was after the shoot, but that still counts, right? 

So the crazy thing about Colorado is that weather can change every 5 minutes. We started the shoot with thick clouds, then a few minutes later we were blessed with a perfect clear sky for a good hour. It’s kinda exciting if you ask me. By the end of the shoot we were running back to our car to dodge a HUGE thunder/lighting storm that was passing over the Horsetooth Reservoir

These guys are actually getting married tomorrow in Monument Hill, Colorado so I wanted to share their session before the fun day!

Jennifer + Andrew – Estes Park Colorado Engagement Session

Jennifer + Andrew flew down to Colorado for a mini vacation and lucky for me they wanted to explore Estes Park for their engagement session! We spent the afternoon checking out a few beautiful Colorado spots in Estes Park and even stopped at the Stanley Hotel since it’s such a (creepy) landmark. Thank you guys for being down to walk around in the snow, laughing at my bad jokes, and picking such a beautiful location for your engagement photos! I can’t wait to fly out for your wedding this August!

Ashley + Kevin – Snowy Stardust Inspirational Wedding Shoot – Fort Collins, Colorado

What can I say? This styled shoot was a good reminder that Colorado offers a type of beauty and community that I’m so lucky to be a part of. The theme of this shoot was simple: space, stars, romance, and organic simplicity. Like always, I try to put together styled inspirational shoots that everyone could...

A look back: 2014

2014…what can I say. It was a crazy good year. I became a wife, photographed 34 weddings, traveled to 2 countries, 10+ states, and packed up and moved to Colorado with my husband + two cats that I think would be much happier plotting world domination. Thank you. Thank you for letting me into your lives...

Colorado Winter Inspirational Bridal Session – Northern Colorado Wedding Photographer

For those that may not know, snow if completely new to me. Growing up in sunny Southern California I went a whole 22+ years before seeing snow fall in person. I know, crazy. After moving to Colorado last year with my husband I knew that I was going to be running around like a 5...
