Trey’s portraits were taken after a storm afternoon in Denver, as the clouds began to clear. Trey told adorable knock-knock jokes the whole time, and we got lots of giggles out of him when he told the punchlines.
Ryan and Deirdra wed in the hills of wine country in California. Healdsburg Country Gardens has a big, old oak tree where they said their vows (and made me tear up). This stunning couple knows how to host a party, with a weekend of events that included a bicycle wine tour in the Russian River Valley and two relaxing nights of wine and great food leading up to the big event. I loved every detail of the wedding day, from the table place cards strung in rows to the paper lanterns adorning the trees and tables. But most of all I loved watching Ryan and Deirdra, two truly amazing people, on one of the happiest days of their lives. Aren’t they shining?
If you brave the traffic jams and noise of Los Angeles, you can still find hideaways like this – Schabarum Park. Flower fields and winding paths through the hills let you escape from the chaos of LA.
I photographed this Denver home for a local architect, showcasing the recent renovation they did to an older Denver residence. One of my favorite features was the unique metal staircase.
The flowers were in full bloom at Flying Dog Ranch in Carbondale, Colorado for Matt and Erica’s gorgeous garden wedding. Erica was another brilliant DIY bride; one of the best details was the handmade stone centerpiece adorning each table. The sunset was incredible, giving us a chance to capture some great back-lit shots that made the bride glow (even more!).
Kyle and I trekked around LoDo in Denver, CO to some of the best locations for his senior portraits with an urban feel.
Wildfires to the west made for some incredible sunsets during our recent visit to Joshua Tree National Park.
