Rosanna + John: Denver Wedding Photography

Rosanna and John are getting married on my birthday! I’ve never been a big fan of my own birthday. July 7th is an awkward time of year to have a birthday. Everyone is out of town so there’s usually not a big party or event. I love weddings so I can’t imagine a place I’d rather be – plus there will be cake.

Anyway, Rosanna and John are cool world travelers and just simply awesome people. They’re getting married at Arrowhead Golf Club (pictured here) and we did their engagement photos there too. They literally have only a handful of photos together in the 7 years they’ve been dating. Can you believe that?! They’re going to have so many after their wedding. :) They were worried about being the least photogenic people on earth, but I think we can all see that’s not true!

Leah + Kalvin: Denver Wedding Photographer

The absolute best times of the day to photograph are when the sun rises or the sun sets. In the world of photography we call it “golden hour” because the sunlight is so pretty. As a photographer it’s always easy to do photos at the end of the day, in fact, I don’t even bother trying to convince people to get up at the butt crack of dawn for a photoshoot with me. I’m cool, but I’m just not THAT cool. So, when Leah and Kalvin emailed me and asked if they could do their photoshoot at sunrise and then have me photograph them making breakfast together I was all kinds of giddy. I’ve always wanted to do a cooking together type of photoshoot. If anyone wants to do engagement photos at the farmers market and then have me follow you home and photograph you cooking together – I’m ¬†your girl!

I had planned for it to be a pretty casual shoot and when I got to Wash Park there they were with all kinds of awesomely cool eclectic props from their house set up! Leah has a think for pigs so I got to see a lot of pigs at this shoot and in their home. They also brought their dogs, Mendi and Rosco. As we all know, I LOVE dogs. Anyway I had such an awesome time photographing them in the park, and watching them make breakfast and chill with the dogs. They’re such awesome people and they’re getting married at one of my favorite wedding venues, Meadow Creek Bed and Breakfast in Pine. I, seriously, can’t wait to see their wedding in August!!!

Lightpainting: Denver Wedding Photographer

When past wedding clients, Betsy and Matt, agreed to dress up again and volunteer for a local photographer group project I was thrilled. I really do have the BEST clients! I’m pretty sure they didn’t know quite what they were getting into, photographing with us in an abandoned field, in the dark, late at night, but I think our experiment turned out pretty cool! I look forward to doing more of these fun light painting photos at weddings and sessions!

The best part was that I was able to work with some local photographer friends, we all brought our stuff, set up and helped to teach each other tricks of the trade. Sometimes photography is a really complex and competitive industry, but I have to say that our group of Denver photographers (Showiteers are what we call ourselves) are really the best ones out there!

For the record, there might be a photo below where it looks like an alien landing, but I assure you we were just goofing off!

Sarah and Milo: Denver Wedding Photography

Sarah and Milo’s wedding was one of the most unique ceremonies I’ve ever attended. I’ve never had the pleasure to be at a celtic ceremony with so many different and awesome traditions. I LOVED every minute of it. Their wedding was at >Meadow Creek Bed and Breakfast<, which is also one of my favorite wedding venues. I love the simple rustic feel of the venue. It’s so gorgeous and I’m looking forward to photographing a wedding again there later this summer.

Let’s talk about Sarah’s dress, it fit her like a glove. She looked so amazing and gorgeous. She also created her own feather headpiece, again unique and beautiful. She just rocks excellent style and has the best taste. From her flower bouquets down to her lace tights and awesome high heeled mountain boots. Sarah was so happy and full of emotion at her wedding, she was so giddy and adorable. She kept making Milo laugh. They’re just such an amazing couple!

Usually family photos are some of my least favorite things to do, but Sarah and Milo had such a close awesome family that we laughed and had a great time. We finished just before it started to rain and I was able to photograph Sarah and Milo in this old shed before the sun came back out again!

It was such a beautiful wedding and I’m so happy I was able to be a part of it all!!!

You Know You’re a Dog Lover When…

…you have a birthday party for your dogs every year! I know I’m not alone in this! All three of our lovies have their birthdays in May. Opal’s is May 7, Rufus’ is May 14, and Lily’s is May 21st. Opal is the head of our pack so we take her birthday as the day we have a party for all the dogs. These are some photos from our dog birthday party. Yes, I make them wear birthday hats. I am a dog mom. I realize I am completely ridiculous.

Everybody got new squeaky toys and had big bones to chew on, so it was a good day. Now Opal and Rufus are both 7 and Lily is 3. I can’t believe how fast time flies with my dogs. It seems like just yesterday Opal was 6 months old.
