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.
I’ve known Avi and Halle since they were in preschool and now they are at Boulder High School! We did our session in the studio first and then in the mountains above Boulder and finished just as it started to rain. Izzie, their little white dog, was a hoot and added some fun images. I think the images and their bright faces speak louder than any words I might use to describe them.
I really enjoy photographing college seniors for their announcements – it’s an exciting time in their lives filled with change and fun. I was looking forward to this photo shoot and then Sara added, “Oh, I’me a runner, can we do some shots of me running too?” Then I did my happy dance. She wanted a softness to the portraits but still outside in the mountains and I think we nailed it. Her boy friend Thomas came along for a few of them together too. At 6 feet 4 inches it was a little challenging. It was a gorgeous Colorado spring afternoon. In just a few more weeks the grass will all turn green and then I expect to see a Leprechaun or two to jump out from behind these trees.
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 fun it was to photograph Sydney at this historic Boulder ranch setting! We used the old farm house and barn on the property as well as the open space next to it. She chose to incorporate some of her Irish step dancing into the photo shoot. Wow. Thanks to her mom Susan for her help during the shoot and finding this amazing location.
One of my favorite subjects to photograph is dance, and I’ll be photographing several dancers over the next few months. Capturing their gestures at just the right moment is thrilling. I’ve also started to incorporate video and music into the still photography. I find the final multi media result is quite powerful and beautiful. India was great to work with and she is a mesmerizing dancer to watch.
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!
These young rock musicians had so much attitude in front of the camera. It was fun to step into the Denver urban environment for a few days for these rock musician portraits. We had a challenging couple of shoots with the weather but the results are stunning! These kids rock! Thanks to Lydia at GlobalSound for organizing all of these photography shoots so well.
These portraits were so cute, I had to post a few of the photos on my blog from this fun family shoot at Chautauqua. The light was harsh but thanks to an assistant and a powerful flash the lighting worked, even at 10am on a sunny colorado morning.
