Downtown Denver Engagement Session – Monica & Eddie

Five years ago, at the top of the world, these two said their “I do’s” and became husband and wife. There wasn’t a dress, or flowers, or cake, all they had was each other. And it was all they needed. Five years and a few kids later, they decided it was time to get the […]

All week before this session it was sunny and clear and beautiful, and then I wake up the morning of Kathryn & Tanner’s Chautauqua engagement session, and of course, it’s raining. But I was so excited for this session, no way was I going to reschedule it! Luckily, the weather cooperated with us and we […]

Chautauqua Engagement Session – Kathryn and Tanner

Whenever I tell someone I’m a wedding photographer, I almost always get asked, “What’s the craziest wedding you’ve ever been to?” I know it sounds lame, but I have such a hard time answering this question! I’m like…uh…none? I’ve been super lucky with my clients because I’ve never had a crazy bridezilla or seen super […]

Green Gates at Flowing Lake Wedding – Erika & Ki

Every year since I started photographing weddings I have photographed at least one wedding for free. Sometimes it’s for a couple who maybe couldn’t afford a photographer otherwise. Sometimes it’s a couple in need. Sometimes I do a giveaway for weddings in new destinations I want to photograph in. Maybe you’re asking yourself, why on […]
