A few months ago I was approached with an invitation to get involved in a creative collaborative with a handful of well respected businesses in the Denver wedding and events industry. The idea was to design a photo shoot that would showcase all of our respective talents and create a body of imagery that we could all use for personal promotional campaigns as well for possible publication to a larger audience. While it is difficult for me to find the time to get involved in these kinds of projects anymore, I am always so happy when I do! Being let loose with full creative reign to shoot my heart out brings me back to what got me into photography in the first place and it is such a refreshing experience. I LOVE working with other artists and the old saying “two heads are better than one” rings especially true under the circumstances.
We had a dream-team kind of day and the entire experience from the seed of creation to the execution was magical. It truly was a team effort and I have the utmost respect and appreciation for everyone that was involved in this project. First and foremost, a huge shout out to the Artistry & Events Design team for all your hard work in pulling this together and for the countless hours you spent building the custom paper flower backdrop. It is a work of art in and of itself! If I ever get married again, I want YOU to design it! To Ann Marlin of Cloud 9 Weddings and Papers, thank you so much for all of your help with the styling and for the gorgeous invitations! I always love any chance I have to work with you! To Nil Soucek of Splendor, thank you for the beautiful parasols and wraps and for your time and energy. You are always a bright light to have around and I loved having you on the team. Thank you to Cate Malone at the Little White Dress Bridal Shop for the beyond amazing wedding gowns! We appreciate your generosity more than you know. Thank you to Lauren Arnke, our fantastic make-up artist. You will be getting many more recommendations from me in the future! And last but certainly not least, thank you to Mackenzie Siegel for being our delightful and absolutely strikingly beautiful model. You are so easy to photograph, the only problem is choosing favorites after the fact because they are ALL so good!
I hope you enjoy the images we created and please if you are ever in need of any of these professionals for your wedding or event, look no further. They have MAD talent!
