I’ve fallen in love with snowy engagement sessions! I’m just loving the look of all that pure white snow (which, if you know me is saying something, because I hate snow). But this snowy engagement session with Christine and Matt was so much fun it changed my mind! Christine and Matt are getting married in […]

Jeana & Jake….where do I even start with these two? From their super adorable dog to the endless smiles and jokes, Jeana & Jake had me laughing their whole engagement session. Seriously, I left and my cheeks hurt from smiling so much! Usually that happens to the people being photographed, not the photographer! Jeana & […]

Downtown Denver engagement sessions are some of my favorite, and Monica and Eddie’s engagement session was no exception! Except, maybe it was even better than most because they included their dogs!! I’m such an animal person, and I love dogs, so I LOOOOOVE it when my clients include their fur babies and I get to […]

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 […]

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 […]
