It was so much fun to photograph Jenna for her senior portraits in the mountains above Boulder. Even though she’s very photogenic, she really doesn’t like being in front of the camera. I think she did extremely well in front of the camera and the images show it. I love working with and learning about these kids’ lives – their interests, hobbies, plans for next year, etc. We were able to get a nice variety of images and expressions in just over an hour and finished up just as the afternoon rain storms began to roll in. Thanks for indulging me and your mom, Jenna.
Since Grace’s mom went to CU, it was meaningful to incorporate the beautiful CU campus in her senior photos. After CU we headed up to Chautauqua and finished the afternoon with Grace kicking a soccer ball while walking up a trail with the sun setting behind her. We had a lot of fun with Grace and her family. Best of luck to Grace who is headed to Oregon State next year.
Jim and Melissa and their friends were fun, kind and adventurous. There really isn’t anything more beautiful than a Rocky Mountain meadow for a Colorado destination wedding. It’s a small risk with the weather, but with a tent and the right vendors it can be quite luxurious. I loved her beautiful custom made dress by Wai-Ching Studio. It’s pretty amazing what a skilled caterer like Black Belly can do even at 8,300 ft. The music by amusicplus had people dancing on and off the dance floor. If there are more people like this fun group from Seattle I have to visit.
Surrounded by their grown children, their grandchildren and many friends, Rosie and Tim’s wedding at the Greenbriar in the foothills of Boulder was an inspiring event. Highlights for me were Rosie’s red wedding dress and the dance done by Tim’s daughter and brother (both professional dancers) telling the story of their courtship. It’s never to late for a second chance to find true love.
Sometimes people have such an infectious laugh you just can’t help but smile and join them. Jonna and Chris laugh a lot. In making each other happy, they make everyone else around them happy. It was a joy to be their wedding photographer. The day started with getting ready at the Hotel Boulderado and the ceremony was at the Greenbriar Inn, just outside Boulder. I loved the scalloped icing on this wedding cake, mirroring the shape of the rose pedals.
I’ve been lucky enough this year to photograph many of my daughters friends. It’s been amazing to watch many of the young women grow up since Kindergarten. We started Cassidy’s photo shoot with some urban scenes in downtown Boulder. We had a bit of fun with the street performer playing on the corner. Cassidy is a swimmer so we ended the day actually in Boulder Creek!
