Jaymie & Marvin’s event was a very special one for me, especially because it was my very first Northern California wedding…
Jaymie and I went to high school together, in fact at one point during our senior year, I lived with her and her parents in their Cottonwood home. Thanks to Facebook, we’ve been able to keep in contact over the years, and when she asked me to photograph her wedding, I couldn’t have been more excited!
I asked my Dad to second shoot with me, as he lives there still and is really great with a camera in his hands. We had a blast working together and he didn’t even take offense that I was technically his “boss” that day (haha, thanks Dad!).
We stole the couple away for a few minutes at the beginning of the reception for some epic portraiture. Since Jaymie booked us, I had envision of them in a field with golden grasses and a huge gnarled oak tree. We had to adventure down the road a little bit, but we found the perfect spot and were able to execute with light fading quickly…
I was honored to have not only attended, but been the chosen photographer to capture their celebration. In fact, I was in tears all day, hiding behind my camera….
Please enjoy a few of my favorites from one of the most touching and beautiful weddings I’ve ever gotten to photograph!

I am absolutely thrilled to share these photos with the world. The First of a four-part series of shoots, all based on C.S. Lewis’ classic tale of “The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe”, this shoot is the beginning of our story and my favorite style to Colorado wedding photography.
Those familiar with the story know that the four heroes are sent away from London during WWII to escape the bombings to live with their recluse uncle in the English Countryside. His sprawling estate becomes the setting for their explorations and they discover a portal to another land, “Narnia” while hiding in a wardrobe.
I wanted the shoot to be styled as 1940’s glamour and wanted to shoot it as a high-fashion engagement portrait session. Please enjoy the photos and hopefully the story they tell…

Best Colorado Wedding Photographer chosen for inspirational feature!
For this month’s issue of Shutter Magazine, the powers-that-be issued a call for your best Glamour or Boudoir photographs for their “Inspiration from our readers” section.
Having taken this part of our market on myself in the last couple of years, I really loved one from a Bridal Glamour shoot from last summer, and one I just got from our Mini Session Day at Grant-Humphreys Mansion at the beginning of May. So, putting myself out there to just see what happens, as I do, I submitted them.
Lo and behold, not one, but BOTH photographs were chosen out of thousands of submissions!! I am beyond elated to share these and look forward to your feedback. Thanks for your continued support and we hope you love these images as much as we do!
