JP | Colorado Springs Portrait Photographer

Downtown...all though its a small downtown (compared to Chicago ;p)  it brings life.  A certain energy to a session.  I liked the grittiness of an alley, the movement of restaurant owners getting their stores open for the day, the bright colors of the city...well, its a perfect place for a senior session in my opinion.   
JP, football player, loves to play his guitar and has a quite but confident presence.  I liked him...liked that he loves his family and is just an all around cool guy.  Anyway, I so enjoyed his session!

Nate + Marjorie | Colorado Wedding Photographer

A day that was filled with sunshine, laughter and thunderstorms.   But you know what they say about rain on a wedding day...and I can see it will ring true for this couple.  Nate and Marjorie opted to meet before hand so they could really enjoy their wedding day.  And it was a good thing we did...the sunlight was stunning and was amazing to work with.  We went to a beautiful meadow just down below the lodge...the sun sparkled on drops of rain from the previous night.  Wild flowers could be seen scattered through out the aspen forest and in the field.   But what always takes my breath away is that first moment that the bride and groom see each other.   Marjorie's happiness, Nate's anticipation...and then when Nate saw Marjorie for the first time...I swear heaven smiled in that moment.  Love so purely expressed in their faces.  So beautiful for me to capture.   And that sweet expression...they carried it through out the rest of the day.  Laughing with their guests through out the toasts ( I have to add were quite possibly the funniest I have heard ever), the amazing BBQ and cake that was served.  Nate and Marjorie were wonderful hosts and this was truly a day to be celebrated by their friends and family.  I simply wish you both the best!

Nate, Jessica, Tyler and McKenzie | Colorado Springs Family Portraits Photographer

Talking to Jessica...its fun.  I know that is a totally weird way to start a blog post...but really she has a beautiful accent.  I'm totally in love with the southern accents and I admit to loving how she would talk to her family...everything sounds sweeter.  ;p  But I'm sure you know what I'm talking about.  Tyler and McKenzie, both so adorable!  Kenzie just turned one and I loved seeing her fit in the same romper that she wore for her newborn photos with me.   That is one of my favorite things about my job...watching little babies grow and being able to photograph that.  Its truly amazing.  
This location and the time of day...well, lets just say it was magic.  That light was magic.  :)  Enjoy a few pics from the late afternoon.

Travis + Jordan | Denver Wedding Photographer

Easy laughter...yes, there are a few people in life that just have an easy time of laughing and enjoying the moment.  Of course when its your wedding how could you not?  But with Travis and Jordan their happiness could be seen through out the whole day.  Laughing with their friends, hugging their loved ones or dancing with their sweet nieces and nephews...and there were quite a few of them, Travis and Jordan were simply happy.   
  Being surrounded by so many people that love them it was apparent by Jen, photographer of kreatid and I that these two, their wedding, their celebration was not just a day to be a remembered but a relationship that would be enjoyed the rest of their life.  Two souls meant to be you could say...and yes, its kind of sappy to say...but hey, I'm a wedding photographer...I see many weddings how could I not be touched by it.  ;p   
I could not be more pleased to have the pleasure of working with my super talented sister at kreatid  on this wedding.  You keep me supplied in chocolate, aspirin, diet coke and constant laughter through out the day...not only that you rock in your creativity.  Couldn't ask for a better partner!
