Amy & Dan.  Got to hang out with these two up in Ashcroft a couple of months ago. It was absolutely fantastic.  Ashcroft is a little ghost town near Aspen, Colorado and it was neat to create imagery with these two and connect with some podcast junkies! (Excited to hear the next season of Serial) Amy & Dan are planning a stellar wedding in Aspen in a couple of months so I’ll have many more words to share after that.  There is a calmness in these, a happy peace.   Cheers Amy & Dan! See you soon

Dan & Sarah
You might remember these two from their engagement shoot in Georgia from a few months ago.  I consider them friends, after the engagement shoot they invited me right into their home to share Grandma’s dinner! I must say I felt so at ease this past weekend, in the weeks leading up to their day amidst all of her last minute planning, Sarah stepped outside of her moment to console me as I went through some tough family times.  I almost didn’t want to write anything about that, but it is the truth and beauty of life.  The dark times makes the light so much more meaningful.  (a truth that I hope shows in my work) Sarah and Dan are constantly traveling, and they are constantly making the world a better place.  Don’t I always say that I get the best clients!  On the wedding day Dan gave Sarah an incredible photograph he had taken, and I was stunned by how good and artistic it was.  It was honestly kind of inspiring, oh the power of a photograph!   The day was incredible, we started off at the Curtis Hotel in downtown Denver, did a first look at Union Station, and then went to Mile High Station for the ceremony and reception.  There was so much love in the air and Mile High Station, is the perfect venue for a romantic Urban feel, I loved it.  Sarah had the wonderful Lilli Black from Bella Calla coordinating the behind the scenes action and the whole day just sailed! Bella Calla also created the floral arrangements for the day and they were absolutely stunning.  Shooting next to me for the day was my friend and fellow photographer Steven Wade, thanks for coming brother!

Rachel & Dan

I was so thrilled to photograph this gorgeous Beaver Creek Hyatt wedding this past December.  This was my last wedding of the year and it was epic!  This wedding just kept on giving, I was trilled from the onset.  From the scene shots, to the details, to the first look..all the way to the snowy finish. Rachel and Dan were such troopers as we went up to the top of the mountain and literally slid down a few feet to get to the first look location.  Yes, I went skiing with my bride and groom! Ha, we survived with out any spills and left with a couple of great images.  I first saw Rachel and Dan interact at their rehearsal dinner, and the first thing I noticed is that they are friends.  You might say, ‘but of course A.D., they have to be friends they are getting married’  But there friendship seemed so deep.  They spoke each other with so much life and expression as if every conversation was better that the last.  Even though I was looking through a lens from across the room, I wanted to know what they were talking about.  I loved watching them go through their day as great lovers and moreover, great friends! I can only hope for this strong of a connection in my own life.  Cheers guys!

Rachel put together an all-star team for her day and they did not disappoint, Stacy at Alexan Events was her planner and the whole day went by flawlessly, they always put together stellar details that are a pleasure to photograph check out her the incredible indoor Hoopah she made just for Rachel and Dan.  Below there is a list of some more of the amazing vendors and as always I have to give a shout out to my main man Steven Wade for second shooting for me, Thanks brother!

Krista & Eric!

I say that I get lucky with my clientele, but I a have been so blessed.  It’s unreal.  Krista and I had a pleasant conversation on the phone and set up a meeting at Thump Coffee in Denver.  Well, my drive to the coffee shop turned out to be very exciting as my car got upset and decided to have a tantrum in the middle of the highway, she huffed and she puffed and broke down for good. I pushed my car to the side of the road and called an uber to get me to my meeting.  But, time had passed and I would sadly would have been late to the meeting.  In talking with Krista, she understood and went on her way, she was celebrating her Dad’s Birthday and then had to fly back to the East Coast.  I was so sad that I didn’t get to meet her and I felt bad for being late to the meeting and I feared that I’d lost the wedding,  But she totally understood and after another  phone call, she booked me for her wedding.  The reason I’m telling this story is because this is where I first felt from Krista a constant element that is true for my favorite clients before, during and after the wedding….trust.  It was so evident during the wedding, and it made me feel so comfortable.  Krista and Eric had this for each other in spades, they seemed to go through their day with such pleasure and grace.  A testament to great planning and trust in love.  It was a pleasure to see the day unfold.  Anyone who knows me knows I am sucker for s great dress and Krista did not disappoint with a Carol Hannah made for her eyes and perfect for the day!  I have to give a huge shout out to Casie Zalud, a super talented photographer out of Boulder who shot along side me for the day, she was so much more that a colleague on this day, she was a friend!  Casie, thanks for rolling with me:) Alright, let’s let the pics do the rest of the talking.  Krista and Eric congrats again!, and thanks again for trusting me with your day!  Cheers!

Here are some more of the amazing vendors that Krista chose to help the day run so smoothly!
