So many photos to edit, so little time! The past couple weeks have been my busiest this summer, with back to back weddings and traveling to Washington and California.

Downtown Seattle Engagement Session – Erika & Ki

Man, I’m just an editing machine lately! I bought a laptop and it’s literally changed my life. I’ve been working on a desktop for 5 years, so being able to edit on the go (or on my couch) has really improved my turn around time! Wahoo! Enough about me, let’s talk about this Snoqualmine Falls […]

They say rain is good luck on a wedding day, right? Well I guess that means if it pours literally all day long you should have more good luck than you know what to do with! That’s what happened for Rob and Lauren’s Longmont wedding, but it was still a beautiful day, and at the […]

What’s in My Camera Bag?

Where do I start?! That location, that light, these two!! Kayce and Chico were a dream to photograph at Wonderland Lake in Boulder! They were so stinking cute together! I love summer sessions so much, there’s just something about that light that doesn’t happen during the other seasons. I’m just crazy about it! But I’ll […]

Heather and Parker’s Fort Collins LDS Temple wedding was so beautiful! I’ve shot many weddings at the Denver LDS Temple, but this was the first wedding I’ve photographed at the Fort Collins Temple and I loved photographing there!
