There was so much I loved about photographing this Denver engagement session! For starters, Lisa and Chad are such a fun and sweet couple. They both love all that Denver life has to offer, and it was so fun to make our way through the nooks and crannies of downtown and incorporate some of their […]

This year has brought so many wonderful weddings – I am one happy, grateful photographer. I’m going to have to look through this whole site to see if I’ve said this before – but this simple Denver wedding may be my all time favorite wedding day. Ladies and gents, meet Carly and Andy. They adore each other; […]
I really shouldn’t be writing this. I’d rather let this story speak for itself, because I can hardly find the words to do any justice to the brilliance, culture, diversity, and straight up fun this downtown Denver wedding day had in store. I spent the day with Vanessa and Juan as it unfolded from a beautiful, […]
I’ve added morning engagement sessions this year to welcome the growing popularity of engagement photography – a bit of a challenge for this night owl photographer type [ ;) ] but, oh so refreshing to have an early start to the day!

Family and culture are by far my favorite aspects of the wedding day. Weddings are always candy stores for my eye- loaded with opportunity to photograph details, architecture, color, and texture. But I am truly a people person, and a family person above all – so when Julia and Andrey described their ideas for their J.W. Marriott wedding in Denver, Colorado, I couldn’t help but notice that what was most important to them were their loved ones. Their families coming together to celebrate was the utmost cherished part of the day for them – not the cake, or the flowers, or the attire (though they were all lovely, of course). Simply family. I knew we would be a great fit.
The Cherry Creek neighborhood set a diverse scene to include the handsome, modern touches Andrey favored in wedding photos, as well as the lovely tree-lined streets that Julia preferred. We had very few minutes set aside for some photographs of the newlyweds, and a little jaunt in a vintage Bentley served the bride and groom quite well – both as a quick getaway from the cocktail hour, and as a stunning background in photographs. We were all back to the reception in no time, under the care and beautiful event design of Stephanie Hinkle and staff at the J.W. Marriott. Stephanie recently requested some of my photography from Julia and Andrey’s wedding day for a published book to be featured in the hotel – can’t wait to see it!
