Brown Palace Hotel Wedding ~ Kathleen & Brian

denver colorado brown palace hotel weddingKathleen & Brian tied the knot on a perfect Colorado summer day, with a heartfelt wedding ceremony at St John’s Cathedral followed by an elegant reception at the historic Brown Palace Hotel in downtown Denver. Kathleen & Brian have a long history together, and it was such a joy to be a part of capturing their wedding. From the stunning architecture of the Cathedral with its vibrant stained glass windows to the breathtaking ballroom in the Onxy Room at the Brown Palace, it was truly a spectacular day. Huge kudos to Michelle Gillette and the entire team at the Brown Palace who coordinated the entire event to perfection down to every last flawless detail. A few favorites from the day..

Melissa & Kyle ~ engaged!

evergreen lake reflection colorado wedding engagement portraitMelissa and Kyle both share a love of the great outdoors, which made Evergreen Lake the perfect backdrop for their engagement session. From our very first phone call I knew I wanted to work with them – they are warm and down-to-earth, and SO much fun. They admitted to being somewhat reluctant subjects in front of the camera, which of course I took as my own personal challenge :) And they did great! I just love their connection to one and other – how they light up around each other, and how they laugh. Congratulations, you two, and I can’t wait for your Colorado mountain wedding at the Sonnenalp in Vail later this year. lake evergreen colorado mountain wedding engagement sessioncolorado mountain wedding engagement session portraitcolorado wedding engagement session portraitcolorado bluebird sky silhouette sun lake evergreen mountain engagement

Denver Country Club Wedding ~ Alexis & Aaron

I’ve been so excited to share a few highlights from Alexis & Aaron’s amazing Denver Country Club wedding.  What an honor it was to be a part of this day, full of joy and laughter, heartfelt toasts, and love infused throughout. I could go on and on about this wedding, waxing poetic about the beautiful Greek wedding ceremony inside the gold-domed Greek Cathedral in downtown Denver. Or I could tell you about how incredible these two are, and the depth of their connection to one and other. Instead I’ll keep the commentary to a minimum and let the photos speak for themselves..

Jenn & Nick ~ engaged!

colorado farm wedding engagement session fields and barn and cowboy bootsJenn and Nick are so wonderful to work with – sweet and down-to-earth, and exude such warmth and a natural ease in front of the camera. These two are planning the most amazing destination wedding next year on the island of St John, so for their engagement session we wanted to capture a sense of the rustic natural beauty of Colorado. And our location couldn’t have been more perfect. I just love the sweeping expanse of the mountains and incredible sunset, as well as a view of Nick’s grandfather’s barn in the distance. A few favorites..amazing colorado sunset cowboy boots barn rustic engagement session
