Steve & Claire

This one was a grand day for me filled with wonderful people and so many beautiful children.  The drive up to Devil’s thumb Ranch was a beautiful snowy dream, that happens so often in Colorado.  I am only sad I couldn’t show you more photos of the snow covered pine.  Mmm..maybe in another post.  Steve & Claire’s wedding was absolutely perfect; filled with so many real moments and so much laughter!  There a few moments I blogged below that really epitomize what a real wedding is like.  There is an idea in photography that a photographer should “see order among the chaos”  or something like that.  This wedding wasn’t chaotic at all, it was actually extremely pleasant, but every event has it’s moving parts and trying to find photographs; moreover, imagery as things are happening is the reason I do this.  I love the challenge.. and as an artist I succeed and fail at hitting my mark every time, but there images in this set that I want forever.. and I am so happy for clients who believe in me and let me play. I am glad I can give these images to them forever..it’s no small thing.   Steve & Claire had an all star cast with Bluebird productions at the helm and Prema rocking the style.  Mmm.. just the best people. Steve & Claire, cheers to you and your family and friends! It was such a pleasure to spend the day with you!  I wish you many more smiles, laughs,  and snowy days that remind you to hold each other tight!

For Cheer!

Lauren + Josiah

It has been far too long since I blogged, but the season is upon us, so there will be plenty of things to share in the coming weeks.  Here is a Wedding from my home in Colorado Springs.  I’ve always wanted to got to a Shove Chapel wedding and was thrilled that I was able to photograph in this wonderful space. The reception was at The Pinery at the hill, then we did a bonus “day after shoot”  at the illustrous Paint mines.. yeah I was on cloud nine like seriously… What I find amazing about my clients is that they not only go where I go and entertain my silly whims but they do it in a tux and dress with smiles on their faces!! I love it!  Lauren & Josiah are friends of mine here in the Colorado Springs; I often let Josiah beat me in chess just because I’ve wanted to boost his confidence before his big wedding day…but now that the wedding has passed I probably won’t let him win anymore.  But, that’s not important.  I’ve been thinking a lot of the four loves as described by C.S. Lewis.. more directly how I want a portion of the four loves to be present in any relationship I am in.  They were abundantly clear during Lauren and Josiah’s day.  I won’t expound with too many words in an effort to expose these two in other ways (see what I did there..expose..you know, cause I am a photographer ;). But from romance to friendship to family these two have a love saturated in God and it is soo attractive. Just look at it.  Congrats you too. Love on my friends, both simply and with complexity.  For Cheer.

Big ups to Claudia Verduzco for flying in for hair and make up; Sloan, for being such a wonderful coordinator and Rachel Long for being a baller second shooter!

Also, yes that is Montell Jordan #thisishowwedoit
