Arrowhead Wedding

 

Wonderful couple, beautiful venue, laid back vibe…and a drive by by the cutest Aussie puppy I’ve seen made for just about the perfect day to be a wedding photographer.

 

Always awesome to work with my fav DJ: Ron at Ron Michaels Weddings

 

Congratulations Meg and Paul!

 

Arrowhead is a stunning venue!

I love it that Arrowhead provides golf carts to take photos on the golf course. Maybe even more importantly, it gives the couple a chance to be alone for a bit after the ceremony.

We went outside to take a few more photos around sunset but my fav ended up being of this random puppy running up to have his belly rubbed. For three dog lovers it was a pretty awesome moment.

I always love photographing the toasts. It's a privilege to be around so much happiness.

The best images aren't of the couple cutting the cake, it's of the guests watching!

Estes Park Engagement

Estes Park Engagement

 

After an incredible trip to France and Greece, it was wonderful to have my first shoot back be with an awesome couple in one of my fav places in the world.  I always love photographing in Rocky Mountain National Park.  And this Estes Park engagement session with Angela and Bill was one of my favs this year.

 

 

I always feel a little spoiled working in Colorado.

Estes Park Spring Wedding

Estes Park Spring Wedding

 

Congratulations to Laura & Trevor!   Beautiful spring day in Estes Park for their wedding.  And the weather gods were kind – no rain, blue skies and just perfect soft light for photography.

 

I’d been looking forward to shooting Laura’s wedding since before she’d met Trevor.  I shoot a lot at Black Canyon Inn where Laura used to be the wedding coordinator and she’d told me years ago that I was going to be her wedding photographer.   I was honored.   One of my fav clients ever, a beautiful wedding and killer light…love my job.

 

Always a pleasure to shoot at Black Canyon Inn and Twin Owls Steakhouse.   And no one does a better job at DJ than Jay at Standing Room Only.  Marci, at Colorado Rose Cake Co, did her usual amazing work.

 

Killer views of the Continental Divide for their reveal photos.

I loved Trevor's expression when he looked at Laura. This is what I most love to photograph - emotion.

Tough to beat Twin Owls Steakhouse for an incredible mountain wedding reception. It's also my fav restaurant in Estes Park...and Colorado.
