I adore this couple! They are so down to earth, natural, and just amazing lovers of life. Karena is a fan of real film so I shot their engagement session with a combination of real Kodak Portra 400 film and digital images adjusted to look like film. Can you tell the difference? Having learned on film in art school and having shot film for the first 10 years in business, I’m excited that it is making a comeback.
After being snowed out twice, Jamie and Brian’s engagement session at the Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs finally became a reality. This is an absolutely magical landscape to shoot in. I was glad to have the off camera Profoto lights with me so we could keep shooting even at dusk. We had a great time spending the afternoon together and I’m very much looking forward to their wedding this summer at Chautauqua in Boulder.
Amy brought many creative ideas to her engagement session in Boulder, Colorado. She brought their colorful cruiser bikes and matched her shirt color with the bike (she loves pink). She brought a fun bride and groom theater mask and a framed print of their wedding date. Adding a few props and coordinating clothing and colors adds some spontaneous fun to their engagement session and pop to their photos. We’ve designed a fantastic guest sign in book from their shoot (with a pink spine on the cover of course.)
Spencer and Hannah’s photo shoot on campus at CU Boulder was to commemorate their years together at CU and to get an image for senior graduation announcements. I finally now feel like I know CU well after all the weddings and portraits and events I’ve done there. A beautiful couple and great human beings, I’me sure they are going to make a big positive difference in the world.
We shot their engagement session at Chautauqua in Boulder starting in the courtyard and then moved into the meadow below the flatirons. As we walked there we came across two big bucks who mostly ignored us but it was exciting. I love her red dress and the way it pops out among the straw colored meadow. A cute couple I’me looking forward to working with in 2016.
What a beautiful afternoon in Boulder, CO to do an engagement session of this wonderful family to be. Ripley, their cute dog, cooperated to the best of her ability given all the interesting smells. Emily must be an amazing dessert chef given where she has worked and I’m looking forward to trying her desserts this summer at the Tasterie Truck. Thanks for a great photo shoot!
Alex planned this so well. Their families and myself were hiding in front of Farrand Hall on the CU campus. He popped the question in front of Farrandl Hall, she obviously said yes, and cheers erupted from all the people playing on Farrand field. Celebration and family portraits followed.
Kyle hired me to capture his wedding proposal to his girlfriend at Chautauqua in Boulder, Colorado. She was unaware that it was coming or who I was. They were supposed to walk closer to me but she didn’t want to walk down the path toward the stranger (me!), so he popped the question where they were standing. I sprinted for a good position in the grass behind them and got a record of the big moment. She said yes. Way to go Kyle. What a gentleman!
We did this portrait session in Boulder on Flagstaff mountain. Rob had recently returned from Afghanistan, and it was an honor to get to photograph him in his military uniform. It never ceases to amaze me all the incredible photography locations so close to Boulder. A wonderful couple from Denver!
Tove and Simen were so natural in front of the camera. As usual, there was very little direction from me during the photo shoot. I love the mix of portraits of the modern architecture and the natural environment. Oh, and Simen is from Norway! I’ll post their amazing wedding photos soon.
