Colorado Wedding

I photographed Kelly and Travis’ wedding and what a beautiful wedding it was. I just love being a Colorado wedding photographer because of all the scenic opportunities it brings. This wedding had some of that, but it started out in a most beautiful chapel. It was at the Shove Chapel in Colorado Springs. From a photography standpoint it was a challenge since the chapel is incredibly dark. But that is when having the top-of-the-line equipment comes in very handy. Any photographer with out the best cameras and lenses would not have been able to capture those beautiful moments in such a dark place. I have had guests of other weddings, with other photographers, in this very chapel say the wedding photos did not turn out at all. That is such a shame!! Many brides and grooms probably don’t quite understand the challenges photographers face with low lighting, so they should really be sure their wedding photographer has top-of-the-line cameras and lenses. I’m happy I do and am able to capture amazing photographs from the day! In fact, all of the outdoor photos shown here were taken at the country club after the sun had set. Without needing to use artificial lighting, I was able to exposure the photos with plenty of light– thanks to my high-end gear and knowing just how to use it.

Outdoor Family Photos

For some fun outdoor family photos in Denver I went to the park to meet Shannon, Steve, and Sawyer. It was a beautiful early Fall day before the cold snap that put an end to any chance of Colorado’s typically colorful Autumn leaves. We all had a great time on the playground, throwing a baseball and a football, and doing Sawyer and his Dad’s favorite thing to do together– fishing! What a wonderful family. I really had an enjoyable time with the three of them and getting the chance to photograph them and provide them with family portraits they can cherish for the rest of their lives.

Wedding at Winter Park

Being a wedding photographer in Colorado is such wonderful thing. Anyone who lives in Colorado or even anyone who comes to visit would have to agree– the Rocky Mountains in this State are such an amazing place to be. They are obviously beautiful, but the air is also cleaner, the pace is more relaxed, and there are so many great activities to do in the high-country– skiing, hiking, biking, rafting, rock-climbing, and the list goes on and on. And of course included in that list is- having a wedding! The mountains are where my wife and I got married and I highly suggest it! So, being a Colorado wedding photographer gives me the chance to capture that experience for others and I’m so happy to do so!

Ashlie and Ryan’s wedding was located right near Winter Park and provided a scenic backdrop to their special day. Here are some of their photos from the day. And don’t forget to checkout even more wedding photos.

Lifestyle Photography

When I do couples photography it’s usually for a wedding, engagement session, or maternity session. But sometimes I’ll photograph more as a lifestyle photographer and simply capture the couple just as they are. These Colorado natives (a rare thing these days) hadn’t had portraits done since their wedding, so they asked me to so in my Denver studio. It was a bit of a Jekyll and Hyde portrait session. The first half was more traditional posing of the loving couple– innocent, fun, both with religious crosses around their necks. And then the second half was clearly marked when he changed outfits (gold teeth, rings, and all) to put on a more dramatic urban look and feel. Their whole demeanor changed to a more tough hip-hop attitude. As a professional photographer I’m always trying to bring out the personality of the people I photograph, so I completely went with it to enhance the whole look. I got some more dramtic lighting set up in my studio and even went with a matching color scheme- adding some red to my background light. He also wanted some shots by himself. I don’t know what he wanted to do with his individual photograph, but I think it would make a great album cover to his debut hip-hop record. I think they all turned out great and had a lot of fun with it.
