Events and Personal Photography

This is where I will include photographs from various events and photojournalism entries about events in my own life as a wedding photographer in Denver, Colorado and destination photographer around the world.

Denver Event Photgraphy: Catering By Design

I was so excited to photograph the always amazing Catering By Design’s party that is thrown annually for all of their vendors and clients. I photographed their last fabulous party, so I knew this one was going to be just as good or better! This time I saved plenty of room in my stomach and prepared myself for a great night.

The party took place in CBD’s warehouse, featuring different kinds of foods, deserts, cocktails and treats. Entertainment was high, with a talented flash mob, dancers, and plenty of eye candy for the ladies! Incredibly innovative food displays filled the warehouse, entrees were mounted on the walls, and some snacks were shelved on high ladders- so creative! Not to mention delicious. Catering by Design always throw the most entertaining parties, complete with a band, DJ and dancers on top of the food coolers!  Everyone from the wedding industry was there, eating, drinking, dancing & enjoying themselves.

I have to say thank you to Catering by Design for having me photograph this phenominal party. CBD are one of my favorite cateres in town for a reason! I look forward to working with them again soon!

Love The Dress with Stef and Tim: Denver

A phenomenal wedding dress requires equally amazing wedding photography, so when Stef told me she was interested in doing a “Love the Dress” photo-session, I was game. Stef, Tim and I met at the park in Denver- and the newlyweds looked just as beautiful as they did on their big day! We had a great time taking some intimate and fun bridal photography around the park.

I love photographing Love the Dress sessions, it allows us to get creative, resulting in intimate and unique images. Stef, you and your gorgeous Vera Wang dress looked amazing in the park! And I loved the black sash :)

Denver Photography with Jess and Ryan: Love the Dress

It’s not called, “The Big Day” for nothing- wedding day’s are incredibly special, historic, important and unfortunately…stressful. As we all know, things don’t always go perfectly. SO, when a friend from the Westin called me asking for some help, I was all ears.

Apparently, Jess & Ryan’s wedding photographer had forgotten to capture certain photographs on the their wedding day. This could of been a huge problem, considering the couples big day was already over, but I was happy to help in any way I could. So, we recreated their wedding day and had everyone dress up one more time. We captured the missing formal shots, and got some great images of the newlyweds, while capturing some amazing “love the dress” photos of Jess.

I hope this helped you with your situation Jess & Ryan! I had a great time in Denver, and if you ever need another favor, or more photography- you know who to call :)

 

 

 

Underwater Photography & Scuba Diving: Cozumel, Mexico

Photography is always challenging when the goal is to create art, but I haven’t been “challenged” by my craft for years like I was all of last week in Cozumel, Mexico. I was on vacation with my family doing some relaxing and scuba diving, activities that we have enjoyed together all of my life. Cozumel has always been one of our favorite locations and we decided to go back again this year. El Presidente Hotel has luscious accommodations, great pools, white sandy beaches, and excellent food and service! And most importantly, the scuba diving is amazingly convenient and truly, world class!! I borrowed an underwater camera set up from a friend and decided to give the underwater photography scenes a shot- no pun intended. ;-)

I was surprised at the difficulty of underwater photography! Between staying perfectly neutrally buoyant, dealing with the currents, the moving sea creatures (darn them!), and the limitations of the gear I was using, it was really hard to produce the quality of imagery I am used to being able to get! But, it was so much fun to add to something I love to do to another thing I love to do; scuba dive. Needless to say, I have been doing some searching online for the real deal underwater gear for my next excursion that I am already fantasizing about.

I’ve always wanted to photograph a unique wedding underwater – anyone??
