Chautauqua is pretty much a perfect spot for an engagement session. You can’t beat the views of the Flatirons, and if you time is juuuust right, you get the most gorgeous fields of flowers. And lucky for us, that’s exactly what we got for Casey and Seth’s Chautauqua Park engagement session. Casey and Seth were […]

Chautauqua Park Engagement Session – Casey & Seth

Let’s take a minute to talk about bravery. I’ve been thinking a lot about this lately. A few months ago I had an epitome of sorts about my past and some of my life experiences. It rocked my world, to be honest. And I shared a tiny bit of that on Instagram. (You can read […]

I’m SO excited to share this wedding! Thomas & Becky’s Black Canyon Inn wedding was one I’ll never forget. There were so many happy tears (many of them from me) and so much laughter! This day was filled with the sweetest moments, from Thomas and Becky’s first look, to the emotional dance Becky shared with […]

Spring LDS Temple Wedding – Mackenzie & Tristan

Ok, snow. You win this time. Normally when it snows in April (for like the 4th time, what is going on this year?!!?) I’m pissed. I hate snow, let alone snow when I want it to be spring. But this time – this one time – I loved it. It was so beautiful! Big fluffy […]
