Denver Family Portraits

You probably recognize the N Family – they have graced the pages of my website many times over the years, since before that little toothless wonder (pictured above) was born.

One thing I love about photographing families is documenting the interaction between the children and their parents – real authentic moments with all sorts of personality shining through..

Devon & Mark are avid cyclists.. so it was only appropriate to have two custom road bikes gracing the aisles of their wedding ceremony (decked out in their wedding colors – how cool is that?).colorado wedding bride groom with bikes just married sign

Breckenridge Wedding ~ Jessica & Travis

breckenridge wedding colorado bride and groom laughingHappy Monday!! I’ve been so excited to share Jessica & Travis’ Breckenridge wedding. Working with these two has been an absolute blast – they are down-to-earth and laugh easily and are such a delight to photograph. Their Colorado mountain wedding at the Mountain Thunder Lodge was perfect, beginning with a heartfelt and emotional ceremony (not a dry eye in the house – including mine :) The reception that followed was a perfect celebration: raucous and wild and SO much fun. I love the personal touches that Jessica & Travis incorporated into the day, but my favorite deserves special mention: pez dispenser escort cards – how fun is that?!  A few faves..

Keystone Ranch Wedding ~ Suepattra & Scott

keystone ranch colorado wedding bride groomSurrounded by their closest family and friends, Suepattra & Scott planned a Colorado destination wedding and tied the knot in July at Keystone Ranch. The entire day was flawlessly coordinated by Emily from Bella Event Design and Planning, and it  was a perfect blend of rustic elegance – a majestic mountain backdrop and glorious Colorado weather. Suepattra & Scott are wonderful – so sweet and expressive and full of joy. I just love how they light up around each other.

Sanctuary Wedding ~ Tracy & Ryan

colorado sunset the sanctuary wedding colorado bride groomWith perfect bluebird skies and the picturesque backdrop of the Colorado mountains, Tracy & Ryan’s wedding at The Sanctuary was simply breathtaking. These two met in high school, and their paths continued to intertwine throughout college where they shared a mutual interest in international studies. Their wedding ceremony was heartfelt and emotional (not a dry eye in the house) and I loved how they incorporated their love of travel into their wedding decor, with vintage luggage tags as escort cards (revealing a world map underneath as the guests took their tickets), tables named after global destinations, and a vintage postcard guest book for guests to write sweet sentiments to the bride and groom. Such an incredible wedding – and such an honor to be a part of it..
