When friends of one of my previous Wedding couples call me up….ALLLLLL the feels.  Haha.  I love that.  My network and community of clients is based on my connections to my sweet clients.  I love that I often get to see these sweet couples again at weddings.   I met Dustin and Megan on the beautiful mountainside of Lookout Mountain.    If you haven’t been there I highly recommend it.  Gorgeous trails, a fun nature center, and the chance to maybe see some epic wild life.  I have yet to be so lucky but I’m hoping I get to see a bear soon.  From really far away but still its on my list of things I’d like to see there.  The weather in Colorado this winter has been a little bit on the shocking side.  Most days it feels like a random summer day then the chilly cold weather I’ve been anticipating.  I admit I want some snow soon.  I know…I should knock on wood soon but it is December.

I love observing how my clients connect to each other at a session.  Megan and Dustin, soft spoken and laugh easily…must be a common trait in all of my clients either that or I am really funny.  😉 But I loved the way Dustin would just naturally help Megan with either stepping over rocks or with the way he would smile at her.  Its easy to see how these two are drawn towards each other.  Such a natural and beautiful chemistry.  I loved photographing their engagement session and can not wait for their beautiful wedding next summer.  I’d love to share a few of my favorites from their session.

Spruce Mountain Ranch

Spruce Mountain always takes my breath away for weddings.   Alvin and Sarah’s ceremony took place outside with the gorgeous foothills of Spurce Mountain as its backdrop.    As they were sharing their vows a herd of cows grazed out in the fields…the sun was just beginning to set, it was just so serene and beautiful.

Alvin and Sarah chose to have a first look.  Which for those of you that do not know what that means,  they chose to see each other privately before they shared their vows.  They wanted to have more time with their guests and for photos after.    In my opinion, a very wise decision as a wedding day goes so incredibly fast it allows you more time with your new spouse too.   They had written to each other in a new journal for each other and both read them before turning and seeing each other.  So sweet!   For many they fear that the moment where you walk down the aisle is no longer as special.  That is simply not true.  Its always a powerful and emotional feeling to see your loved one walk towards you as you share your new beginning and vows together.  When Alvin and Sarah saw each other as she walked down with her parents, their was not a dry eye anywhere.  You could feel how special the other was for each other.  I loved that.  I know its hard to pick favorites on a wedding day…but that one was mine.  Or maybe it was the way Alvin and Sarah’s friends and family in their bridal party made everyone laugh and how they particularly helped the bride and groom whenever their was a need.  Wedding’s are always such an incredible honor for me to photograph every time.  Its beautiful to see so many people gather around a couple with well wishes and sweet words of encouragement.  For Sarah and Alvin,  thank you so much for having me be part of your day.  Allowing me to document your vows and new beginning.  At the end of this post will be links to all the amazing and talented vendors that helped make this day possible for Alvin and Sarah.   I’ve also shared more on my facebook page, if you’d like to check that out head on over to with this link

Arrowhead Golf Course Wedding

Drew and Adam’s beautiful Arrowhead Golf Course Wedding was one for the books!  The heavy crazy intense rain could not stop this couple or their friends and family from gathering around outside and witnessing this sweet couple from sharing their vows.  One of the guests from the wedding followed me and Jen around with an umbrella so we could continue capturing Drew and Adam’s vows without the rain getting all over our gear.  The bright pops of pink and navy blue all through out the reception and ceremony site stood out against the gorgeous mountain backdrop at the Arrowhead Golf Course.   Drew and Adam had a wine ceremony during their vows and it was so special to see this couple not hold back on their emotions.  I loved watching the guests laugh and cry right along with Drew and Adam.  For Drew and Adam’s portraits their bridal party grabbed the umbrellas and laughed at all the crazy rain but I adored their obvious happiness.  And umbrellas…I don’t often get to shoot with them.  It added such a fun charming element to their wedding photos.  Such an epic day!  I shared more on my facebook page if you’d like to head on over there here is a link:

Colorado Springs Engagement Photographer

I so enjoyed spending the afternoon with Lara and Eric.  After their engagement session the hubs met me and we all went to dinner to get to know each other a little better.  Its not often that I have the opportunity to do that.  And I loved that.  I loved getting to see Eric and Lara in an environment outside of having a camera on them haha.  That can make anyone feel nervous.  That was not the case with these two.  I loved how transparent they were with each other.  Its completely obvious to everyone around them how much they love each other.  I happen to also be friends with them on facebook and they regularly share just how special the other is to them.  I love that.  It brings a special and beautiful relationship to be able to photograph that naturally so others can see.   Not only are they completely charming as a couple but I loved how much they made me laugh.  Eric and Lara are both very sarcastic and have such a funny sense of humor.  We were all laughing so much through out the day.  I’d love to share a few of my favorites from their engagement but I’ve also shared a few more on my facebook page.

Thank you so much again Lara and Eric!  I can’t wait for your beautiful wedding in the spring!

Planet Bluegrass Wedding

When I get to the point of blogging a wedding its a moment where I’m a bit sad to let it go.  But I adore reliving them as I share a bit of the couples story.  And let me tell you this Planet Bluegrass Wedding was epic.  The location itself is stunning.  The walls that surround this venue, that is also set up to hold concerts through out the year, is so unique and beautiful.   A creek, river at times lol, runs on along the back of it and I was told by Mike he’d often set up his hammock during concerts on the other side.  It sounds like a perfect way to spend a summer night.   There were a lot of happy moments that its kind of hard to figure out where to start on this one.  I will say I think that Mike and Erica’s first look was one of my favorites I’ve ever photographed.   We were setting up Erica and she said hey Mike and he spun around and I’m like AHHHHHHHHHHHHH my camera.  Fortunately I grabbed and caught the spin.  He was SO excited to see her.  His expression was like Christmas morning for a kid and he reached out and hugged her so quickly.  Literally made me smile and laugh right a long with them.  That kind of happiness…it was the tone for the whole day.  I mean, the toasts that were shared had me laughing till tears streamed down my face.  I kid you not.  You’ll see from a few of the images how their friends had everyone laughing.  Gosh this was a fun crew to work with.  And the live band they had hired for the reception…The Fever.  WOW!  I was blown away by their charisma and ability to get the crowd off the seats and dancing all night long.  At the end of the night they had the crowd screaming one more song one more song.  They didn’t want them to quit.  Sign of a really good party for sure.

I simply can not wait to share this sweet and oh so beautiful couples wedding day.  I shared quite a few more on my facebook page and if you’d love to check them out head on over and click on my name it will link right to it.
