Being asked to photograph Nashika and Shane’s elopement at Garden of the Gods was truly an honor and a sweet memory for me.  I had spent the weekend before hiking around Garden of the Gods with some friends looking for the perfect spot.  One of my friends had mentioned this beautiful place in the park that was pulled a little further away from all the highly trafficked areas there.    Such a beautiful spot…natural arches formed in the rocks and I knew it would be special for them to say their vows to each other underneath it.  Garden of the Gods is known for its beautiful red rock formations and of course all the stunning views of Pikes Peak.  Getting married here, ahhh, simply a beautiful idea.    If you’ve never been I recommend hiking and exploring it.  So gorgeous!

I loved having the opportunity to photograph their beginning.  Their hand written vows and the sweet way they love each other.  The way Shane looked at her was so obvious how smitten he was with her.  They mentioned that they met swing dancing.  She was just learning and he asked her to dance.   He danced his way into her life…part of her personal vows to him.  So romantic.   They flew in for the weekend and the day could not have been more beautiful.  Shane and Nashika, I’m so incredibly honored you asked me to be part of your elopement.  I simply wish you both the best in life.  <3

Also, I’d love to give a special shout out to the lovely and oh so talented makeup artist ElePosh  .  The beautiful fur stole Nashika wore was from Tried and True Boutique

I so love photographing Mount Falcon.  Epic views all around and has beautiful forest that is stunning with the light filtering through.   Honestly, having an engagement session there is perfect.  Its not too overly crowded and there are a ton of options in changing things up each time you shoot there.  Or at least that is what I try to do.

I loved getting to spend time with Hannah and David.  They have such a sweet and easy chemistry and lets be honest they are both incredibly photogenic.  Hannah rocked her 4 inch heels and had some help from David on a few tricky spots but that made for some sweet photos.  I can’t wait to share this engagement session!

Thank you so much Hannah and David!  I can’t wait for your beautiful wedding day!

With some couples you meet for the first time and you just know it was meant to be.  My first time I met Rachel and George was actually at another wedding I was photographing.  They were taking a quick look at a venue and I ran into them.  They asked for my card and a few weeks later we talking about their beautiful wedding.

This Highlands Ranch Wedding was stunning, classy and simply full of sweet emotion.  My sister Jen and I were invited in this day with Rachel and George’s friends and family and made to feel so welcomed and valued.    The tables were lit by candlelight and greenery.  Such simple and beautiful elegance.  I loved that they didn’t want a cake and went with cookies instead.  I mean that is my kind of bride.  Haha…of course I’m not really a cake person.  😉  The mansion itself…seriously, there were so many different rooms that I could have photographed.  Such a gorgeous venue with beautiful light.  I loved all the stone work surrounding the building.  What a perfect venue to get married at.

Rachel’s quick smiles and easy laughter with her friends was so beautiful.  But I particularly LOVE the way George lights up her whole world and its equally obvious how smitten he is with her.   Their story was shared before they said their vows and it had me laughing and thinking about how soul mates are something to be found in this lifetime.   I loved that George pursued her relentlessly.  I love how Rachel took time to pause and think about their relationship before jumping in.  Such a fun romantic story.   Rachel and George were simply a dream couple to work with.  Gracious and kind and yes, oh so beautiful.  I had so much fun!  Congrats and many blessings to you both in your new marriage.

I loved photographing Jenny and Ryan for their engagement session.  I have photographed Jenny’s sisters last two weddings in the past few years and have loved getting to see them at each wedding.   Jenny’s family so reminds me of my own and I love getting to celebrate and photograph their sweet life moments.

We hiked and explored around the property of one of Ryan’s clients beautiful space.  I loved that they gave us access to such a truly gorgeous landscape.  Add in a fun…ahem and HUGE fire thanks to Ryan it made for some unique photos.  I loved how easily this couple laughed.  Either with me or at me… 😉 I simply loved spending that evening with them. Here are a few of my favorites from their engagement session.  To see more head on over to my facebook page:

Jenny and Ryan, I simply can not wait for your beautiful wedding this December!

What a fun couple Alvin and Sarah are.  I loved that they wanted to include a mini picnic for their session.  They regularly take time out out of there week to spend quality time together…and its often as a picnic.  This SO inspired me to do this with my hubby…while maybe not in the winter, haha, but this will so happen this summer.  Gosh you can’t beat these Colorado views either.  I loved hiking around with Alvin and Sarah and getting to know them a little better.  I adored their easy and laid back personalities.  They laughed so easily with each other and it made for so many sweet candid portraits.  I’d love to share a few of my favorites from this session.
