After spending much of the previous week in the mountains, we were looking forward to mixing it up a bit with Patricia and Kevin’s Cherry Creek wedding at the JW Marriott. Don’t get me wrong, I love the mountains. But Denver is a city with unending nooks and crannies perfect for wedding photography and we love to take advantage of that. Continue reading →

We’re back! We had a lovely two-week pause from photographing weddings, which we used to wrap up post-production on past weddings and do a whole lotta prep work for upcoming weddings (okay, and maybe we fit a brewery or two in there). And then, precisely a day after delivering the final gallery from our first stretch of weddings, we packed up and drove 1300 miles for Suki and Derek’s Seattle wedding. Continue reading →

In each installment of our educational blog series, Anatomy of a Photograph, we’ll break down one of our trickiest wedding photos.

It’s been a season of firsts for us – from a nighttime portrait with the Denver skyline in the background to a pre-wedding snowboarding shoot at Beaver Creek. And while we’ve had plenty of adorable dogs and children as ring bearers, last weekend was the first time we had a mini-pig trot the rings down the aisle. Continue reading →
There’s a lot you can say about Colorado, but you certainly can’t say the weather here is boring. We saw clouds, a little bit of sun popping out, light drizzle, torrential downpour, snow flurries, and even graupel at Alliy and Phil’s University of Denver wedding on Saturday. But I was most impressed by the couple’s attitudes through the entire day. They never once balked at any of our photo suggestions, which is the kind of adventurous spirit that makes a wedding memorable. Continue reading →
