Melissa and Montie were one of those couples that got thrown together at a wedding.  As in “hey, you guys don’t know each other, neither of you are dancing, so dance together.”  So basically the one thing you wish your parent’s wouldn’t do, totally embarrassing.  After begrudgingly dancing a dance together, they realized there was a spark.  The rest is history.  So…I guess the lesson learned is sometimes you should be grateful for parental intrusions?  They are a beautiful couple and they are going to have very, very blond children one day.

It’s no secret that I love animals more than anything else in the world.  In the past year I’ve had the opportunity to work with several more than are currently living in my portfolio, I thought a Sunday might be a good day for us to all look at cute faces.  Awwwwwwww…… Continue Reading →




You know, not everybody has to be engaged to want a couples portraiture shoot!  Erin and Marshall are just a couple of beautiful people and friends of mine that wanted some romantic pictures of the two of them.  I decided it would be cool to do it in my neck of the woods.  When people say they want an urban shoot they usually mean downtown or in the Highlands, but I decided my own neighborhood had some cool things to offer.  I love my neighborhood big time.  I’ve been here five years and I never want to leave it!   Continue Reading →




I met this couple about a year back and they are SO lovely.  Dan is an executive chef and Kristin works in event management, so I was beyond excited to be invited to their destination wedding in which we would all be staying in the same house and eating fabulous food by Dan for a week!  I knew Kristin must have something fantastic up her sleeve.  We stayed in Puerto Aventuras, a short ride from Playa del Carmen and Tulum in the gorgeous Yucatan Peninsula.  This little strip of paradise is formally referred to as “Riviera Maya,” and you can actually kayak not-so-far down the beach and see ancient Mayan lighthouses-too cool! This was my first time to Mexico and I was pretty amazed by it.  Everyone is SO NICE and food and activities are so cheap, we had so much fun!  Everyone else got homesick by the end of it, but I was thinking of ways to just move my animals down there with me and set up shop.  Full time vacation.  Full time Caribbean wedding photography.

Kammi and Josh got married in a  rustic barn wedding in Evergreen, Colorado.  It was tucked away in a beautiful valley, their decorative touches were simple and beautiful.  Josh grew up right in Evergreen, and it was clear that he was both proud of and grateful for his simple, safe upbringing in the somewhat isolated town.  The two had met in the military in Okinawa, and there were many attendees that were overseas with them and were there for the blossoming of the relationship.  The bond between troop members was really beautiful to witness and I was really excited to be able to document it.  Furthermore, their ringbearer was a BEAUTIFUL lab named Spanky, and unlike other dogs I’ve witnessed at weddings, he pulled off the performance like a pro!  Yay for Spanky!

When I found out my friend Jessica was pregnant I couldn’t get her in front of my camera fast enough.  It seemed like we had 800 scheduling obstacles but we made it happen!  Jessica is an extremely talented artist and gifted, interesting person to talk to.  I immediately thought that I wanted to go for a kind of boho/earthy vibe: warm light, tall grasses, light accessories, and Jessica was thankfully on board!  This photoshoot is the first time I used this new location that I have now gone back to multiple times.  It’s like lighting and scenery magic!
