Who would’ve thought I’d be posting a snowy wedding in the middle of May?! Colorado said “Spring? lol jk” for Margaret and Josh’s Cielo at Castle Pines wedding, but it turned out to be amazing. The snow was stunning, big puffy soft flakes, and it really wasn’t all that cold out (some bridemaids may disagree […]

The Most Important Thing about Being a Wedding Photographer

Spring!! I love spring! And I love these gorgeous cherry blossoms that pop up every year. I would be the happiest photographer around if these blossoms stuck around longer. It’s always so hard to predict when and where they’ll be, but this year I was able to find some and schedule a couples session just […]
