I’ve been so excited to share highlights from Kelly & Peter’s elegant November wedding at the Sanctuary Golf Course. Kelly was absolutely radiant, such a stunning bride.  And Peter looked dashing in his military dress blues.  I love how they light up around each other -  and their story is so romantic.. fates aligned to bring them together, meeting initially in Egypt, and then again in Washington DC. It was such a joy to be a part of capturing their day and I am so grateful. Huge thanks to CC from Colorado Wedding Company for introducing us. A few favorites..

oh baby ~ Introducing Lila

colorado portrait newborn babyThis is Lila. Tiny. Sweet. Beautiful.

And a story. Because I’m still in awe at this small world we live in.

Lila’s mom is Erika, the owner, baker, and mastermind behind the delectable bakery in the Highlands called Living the Sweet Life. Erika and I met for the first time this summer when we happened to be working together at Lauren & Rian’s Chatfield Botanic Gardens wedding.

And this is where the ‘small world’ comes in..

Because when she introduced herself, Erika told me about her man JP – the same JP who happens to be a long lost dear friend of mine from days of yore, back from those years spent gallivanting around the globe. I met JP while living and working in Switzerland, in the tiny alpine village of Crans-Montana, where I worked for 8(!) summers (JP was there for two of them) It is a place that is so important to me, and the friendships formed during those years hold a special place in my heart. So to be able to reconnect in this circuitous manner is incredible. I’m still in awe. And honored to have the opportunity to photograph their newborn baby girl.

A few of my favorites from our session..
