Wow, what an amazing bridal shoot! We had to take breaks for the rain showers, but that gave us some soft diffused light. Rebecca looks so beautiful in this wedding dress in the gardens at the historic Hover Home in Longmont, CO.
This was such a cool wedding! We started at the Brown Palace Hotel in Denver, Colorado. The wedding ceremony and reception was part of the Denver Art Museum‘s Untitled Series. After the museum closed at 5pm we headed over to Denver’s Civic Park to take some group shots. I love the shot with Denver’s capital in the background. Patricia had some awesome spontaneous moments like when she jumped in front of the Denver Art Museum sign. The food at Palattes in the museum was some of the best I have had at a wedding. The clean lines and art on the walls made for some interesting backgrounds.
Alison and Dan had a wedding with a mix of the rustic outdoors and the elegant indoors. The ceremony was on top of flagstaff mountain in Boulder and the reception was at the St. Julien. I always love shooting a wedding at the St. Julien Hotel. It photographs beautifully because of all the clean lines. The service is great and the food is always outstanding too. The room at the St. Julien was truly transformed by Alison and Lynn at Brighter Day Floral. Nice job Alison!
A cool early morning at Chautauqua with beautiful overcast skies was the setting for this wedding in Boulder, Colorado. We had gotten to know the couple and her parents before the wedding and it was great to be a part of these two families’ special day as their wedding photographer. I love the 300esque movie lighting of the groomsmen. The red flowers really pop under the overcast light. The flowers by Ellen Cara were really magnificent. That was some kiss…
These two were so much fun. They danced the night away to Jimmy Buffett and then headed to the Florida Keys for their honeymoon. Willow Ridge Manor in Morrison was a beautiful spot to have a wedding with a lot of character and they took great care of everyone. The scenery near Red Rocks in Denver, Colorado makes for some stunning wedding photography.
We had a great time at the engagement session. They are such a playful and fun couple. It was raining lightly on and off all afternoon but that didn’t stop their warm personalities from coming through. Mark does amazing landscape design and installation ( iammakgosbee.com) and Adrienne makes beautiful jewelry.
I am really looking forward to the wedding of Patricia and Chris at the Denver Art Museum this Friday. We had a great time at their engagement session back in October and I have posted some of the photos below. The event is open to public and part of the museums untitled series – “The Denver Art Museum—less like a field trip and more like a night out. Expect live music, unusual tours, offbeat encounters with art, cash bar…and a dose of the unexpected.”
Wow, I just spent a week with Kevin Kubota, one of the best wedding photographers in the world. The class spent a week together in Breckenridge photographing and learning to enhance our images in photoshop and lightroom. Just like we used to manipulate a print in the darkroom to get the feeling or mood we wanted, Kevin taught us how to manipulate the images in photoshop and lightroom to achieve the look we want for our own style. Below are some images from the class.
Here is an example of one of our slide shows showcasing some images from a few different weddings.
