A Princess and a Cowboy

Yesterday was the one-year anniversary of two amazingly sweet people! I am fortunate enough to have gotten to know them over the last few years, as well as their family. Tammy and Paul are so amazing and giving to everyone around them I am honored that I got to photograph their wedding celebration last summer! And by the end of next month, they will be grandparents to two brand new babies in their family.

The amazing Taylor Family, so many great people!

A drive to Romance

When I first met up Jen and Matt I knew on the spot that I wanted to capture their wedding. They had such a fun idea! They had a Rolls Royce pick them up from the Ritz-Carlton downtown and we drove up to Flagstaff mountain where a Justice of the Peace met them and conducted the ceremony.

It was an adrenaline rush for sure. Chasing a Rolls-Royce up the mountain? Thank goodness I had my trusty Second-Shooter/Stunt Driver Isaac Small there to help! Jen and Matt left the next day for Mexico!

I guess you had to be there …

Today Sarah and Chris are celebrating their one-year anniversary!

These two are so adorable. Just a wonderful couple that really support one another. I really enjoy Facebook as a business owner because I am able to keep in contact with my clients from the past and its always great to hear how they are doing. These two are solid.

They got married at Meadow Creek in Pine. The day was so beautiful and the meadow was lush and green. The crew was great – Something about dollar bills and Vegas (I still don’t know what exactly that was about and I am ok with it) kept them entertained the whole day. Ok, I still see comments about Dollar bills on Facebook.

Congratulations to Chris and Sarah for the first year in your life-long journey keep on dancing!!!

Rain is good luck and great lighting!

Adam and Lily had a romantic, rainy day in Evergreen for their wedding. These two are too much fun! – Seriously, when you get the whole Bridal Party out on a deck in the rain running in circles, how can you not love them?

I met these two back in March when we had their engagement session. And from the second we started shooting, I could hardly wait for their big day. These two are so comfortable together. They have amazing chemistry between them and I am so excited I got to capture that! The rain did not dampen their spirits at all, if anything, it only added to their personalities.

Congratulations you two on your marriage!

Adventure of love, cooking and Gypsies

Happy Anniversary to Kristi and Zac!

These two have had quite the adventure since they tied the knot last May Day! I’ve been fortunate to hang out with them several times over the last year both in Colorado and in Georgia where they now live. Kristi has continued in her passion for cooking (check out her blog Home Sweet Georgia) and Zac is following his dream as sports editor for a paper in Windsor county outside of Athens, GA. The most exciting part?  I will get to see them even more this year as they will soon be welcoming the newest addition to their family in September! Baby shower and Maternity shots will be happening this summer!!!!

Happy first year of married adventures to two of my good friends!!

One Year of adventure!

A year ago I was one lucky photographer and friend who got to document the wedding of Chris and Adriana. That was a fun, but slightly chilly day in Pueblo. We might have frozen the bridal party during the group photos … maybe. 😉

Happy Anniversary to Chris and Adriana!

So excited to be married!

Boys walking like the Beatles on the way to the ceremony from the hotel.

Adriana’s sister watching her closely. She was one happy flower girl!

Opening prayer for the ceremony.

Taking some down time on the couch … In the bathroom.

Can you say an awesome bridal party? Too much fun was had … even though they were freezing!

This is still the best Father-Daughter dance I’ve seen. Coordinated and everything!

Happy Anniversary to you two Beautiful people. Thank you for letting me capture these moments.

 

Chris and Adriana are also now the proud parents of little Leila. They have such a beautiful family and I’m so happy I’ve been able to follow them a long over this last year.

And one from Adriana’s Maternity Shoot. Had to include Little Leila too!

A Year

A year ago, I was on my way to the Broadmoor hotel in Colorado Springs to shoot Miles and Tonya’s wedding. It’s amazing how much has changed in a year. I love each of the couples that I worked with this year. And I am thankful to all of them for letting me capture their moments. Tonya and Miles were so much fun to work with it was not even work! Congratulations to the both of them on their one year anniversary!

Three years of marriage (almost)

Two of my most favorite people flew all the way from Germany to have a photo shoot with me! Well, not really. They did fly here from Germany but not just to have a photo shoot. Today, we drove to Colorado Springs and did a quick photo shoot at Garden of the Gods. It was a bit chilly, but they still made cute photos! We are working on scheduling our next photo shoot on location in Germany!

I love my best friends 🙂

Awww so much love!

Every Girls Dream

Ok, it might not be every girls dream. But when I was young, that was what I wanted to be.

Who wouldn’t want to be a flower girl? You a lone carry the responsiblity of being the last person to walk down the aisle before the bride. Letting the petals float down to the isle so that it becomes a beautiful runway that the bride glides down to her groom.

You also get to wear cute dresses.

Lily was an awesome flower girl. Unlike the majority of the little attendants Lily was the life of the party – till the DJ broke down. There were no “sleeping chair photos” from this girl.  She kept the dance floor grooving!
