Fall Wedding at Della Terra

|
My photography journey started way back in 2003 when I decided to attend Central Michigan University to study journalism with a concentration in photojournalism. I had a blast during my four years in Mount Pleasant (which isn’t anywhere near a mountain) and made a ton of lifelong friendships along the way. One of those friends…

Denver Clock Tower Wedding

A lot of people right now are going on and on about knowing that a couple is good together by how much grace they’ve had while planning a pandemic wedding. That’s true, to an extent. But after watching Hanna and Dan’s Denver Clock Tower wedding, I’ve found a much better measure. I discovered this during…

As the last stop on our epic Mountain West Road Trip, after photo shoots in the Great Sand Dunes National Park and Summit County, Jesse and I headed northward for Heather and John’s Grand Teton elopement.

But before we dive into the photos from the wedding, let’s take a few moments to rewind. A little over two years ago, Dillon was involved in a horrific accident when an explosion at the oil field…

Denver Micro Wedding

We had the most epic Alt Session planned for Emily and Jake. I was in the midst of arranging locations and timing right around mid-March. So, yeah. That didn’t happen. But I feel like we ended up with the brightest cloud lining; instead, we got to join Emily and Jake and their families for a backyard…

Loveland Pass Engagement

|
Michelle and Dan’s Loveland Pass engagement session came as a surprise to Michelle. Granted, she thought that she’d be taking photos that day and in that location. But she also thought that it would be Dan setting up a camera to capture some images of their family vacation to the Rocky Mountains. Dan is no stranger to photography, so this had become an expected part of any of their adventures together. Little did she know, she’d be heading back to Delaware with a gorgeous rock of her own.
