Speed Shooting: Wedding Retreat Wedding in Florida

Have camera bag, will travel.  :-)  I have been all over the map in the last couple of weeks!  A week after getting back from Atlanta, I was on my way to Orlando, FL for the premier Weekend Wedding Retreat at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress presented by Susan Southerland and the Just Marry team as well as the hotel.  I flew in on a Thursday, shot with the Just Marry team on Friday, and Saturday was a jam packed day of shooting, documenting the event all day, speaking to all of the couples about how to choose a wedding photographer who were split into two different groups,  not to mention the 17 "mini" engagement shoots with each couple that attended.  It was a bit like what I imagine speed dating would be like...a total whirlwind! 10 min per couple starting at 3:00, 3:10, 3:20, 3:30, 3:40... and on like that until I had photographed everyone.  I had about 15 min for a quick change of clothes while also making a slideshow to surprise the couples with at the mock wedding reception that … [Read more...]

Natalie & Garret: Beautiful Wedding

At long last! I finally have a few of my favorite images from our first wedding of 2010 ready to post.  It was a gorgeous winter day and the Holy Ghost Church looked particularly spectacular all decked out with Holiday cheer.  I have photographed many weddings at the Holy Ghost and I always love that venue for ceremonies.  It was a special treat to see it decorated so differently with all the red colored draping and twinkle lights everywhere!  The reception was held at the Denver Ritz-Carlton where what followed their intimate ceremony was a perfectly classy and elegant dinner party.  Thanks again to Natalie and Garret and their wonderful families for including us in such a special day. xoxo  … [Read more...]

Jennifer Rose: Love The Dress

Jennifer was one of my brides from earlier this year and I was so excited when they booked us because they also booked a "Love the Dress" Session for Jenn.  Jennifer and Dave live in Vegas, so we have been waiting to do the photo shoot until they could come back to CO.  Last weekend just so happened to be the weekend.  It was pretty chilly (but beautiful) outside and we started early in the morning... Jennifer was a total trooper and with the team effort we had in place (thank you Matt!), we got some really beautiful images!  Thanks so much for braving the chilly temperatures and for meeting us so early.  We look forward to seeing you both again in December! … [Read more...]
