Getting married? Hiring a professional photographer? Always, always include engagement photography.  Always.  Whenever I meet with clients for the first time, I try to stress the importance of having an engagement session with their wedding photographer – regardless if it’s me they end up hiring.  You may not need save-the-dates, you may not need or want to have engagement photos on display at your wedding, but what I really think you need is an opportunity to work with your wedding photographer before your wedding day.  In my case, I want to put clients at ease in front of the camera and have a chance to goof off a bit and have a good time together.  That way, when the wedding day comes along, and the groom sees me in a tree or rolling around on the floor to get an interesting perspective – he won’t have to worry – it’s just me doing my thing.  The more comfortable you are in the presence of your wedding photographer – the better your wedding photos will be.

Meet Katie and Nick.  They wanted an urban setting for their engagement shoot, so we headed into downtown Denver to photograph for a bit with plans to wrap at dusk under the lights in Larimer Square.  We ended up with some amazing scenes.  I drove the few blocks from my home in the Denver Highlands (riding my bike with my camera gear makes me crazy nervous) and found THE best parking spot ever – right in the exact spot we had planned to meet – only to realize that I had forgotten my wallet.  My car is usually spotless, but I searched for loose change anyways – no luck.  I happen to have a resolution set for 2012 to not earn any parking tickets (yes, I usually earn them- a bad habit to break.  I can only imagine the amounts of sushi I could enjoy in lieu of paying parking tickets) and I had stayed true to that goal for all 13 days of the year so far.  Up walks Katie and Nick – looking adorable and so excited for our session.  I was laughing at myself as I explained the scenario, and Nick kindly filled my parking meter to the max.  Lifesaver!  I sent Nick and Katie a complimentary enlargement from our session in thanks for saving me from a ticket – scroll down to see which photograph they chose, it’s one of my favorites too.  (No parking tickets to date as I write this post, by the way.)

Elise and Hunter braved a chilly winter day for what turned out to be a beautiful Round Rock engagement session. I’m honored to be photographing their wedding next winter, and I had such a great time getting to know them both and witnessing their sweet interactions as we made our way through the Old Settler’s Association […]

I am happy to be back on the blog wagon after a wonderfully busy winter season, and can’t think of a better feature to kick things off than Jaci and Payton’s New Year’s Eve wedding celebration that rang in 2014 with a bash! The evening gathering began with a quiet, candle-lit ceremony and quickly transformed into […]

I had the lovely honor of working with Ashley and Sean at the Hoffman Haus in Fredericksburg, Texas this fall. I have to be honest, when I arrived the morning of the wedding day – a big part of me wanted to pose as a bridesmaid, just so I could lounge around in the beautifully crafted suites […]
