Denver Engagement Photography: I consider it an honor every single time a new couple chooses me to be their wedding photographer. Looking back over the last ten years, I can honestly say that I have poured my heart and soul into my business and I have genuinely dedicated my energies towards becoming the best photographer that I can possibly be. I take the responsibility of capturing my clients love stories very seriously, but given how much I love doing what I do and how long I’ve been doing it, I have reached a point where I have the confidence I need to let the creativity and passion just “flow.” The technical stuff is like second nature. I love being in this place in my career because instead of worrying about my camera settings, what the light is doing (or not doing), or what kinds of poses I should do, I can really engage with my clients and just focus on creating images for them that I know they will love!
Most of the brides that hire me come by way of good business (referrals), strong SEO (Google) and a little bit of dumb luck. Given the enormous number of choices for brides these days, I will admit, I don’t envy the process it must be to find “the one” in an ocean of photographers.
Brides on the inside of the wedding industry have it a little easier. Mostly because they have experience working with dozens of different photographers, florists, bands, etc., I would imagine that it’s much easier for them to narrow down their vendor choices based on their personal and professional experience. That said, when a wedding coordinator hires me, I take it as MORE than a compliment! Trust me, they have seen it all… The good, the great, the bad, and the worst.
Cortney is a planner with Cloud 9 Weddings and Papers, and I have only recently gotten to know her in the last couple of years. I have been photographing weddings with Ann Marlin (the owner of Cloud 9) for the past 10 years and we have a wonderful business relationship, not to mention a fabulous friendship, but when Cortney joined the team, I knew I would still have to prove myself to her and hopefully impress her as well. I guess I did, because when she first spoke to me about her wedding, I was over the moon that she wanted me!
Cortney and her darling fiance, Michael, met me at Standley Lake for an evening engagement session with their adorable dog and we had a blast! The weather was perfect, the park was lush and green, and the mountains and lake were literally sparkling in the distance. I loved getting to know Micheal and I truly can’t wait for their wedding this Sept. in Beaver Creek.
THANK YOU SO MUCH Cortney for choosing me! Your wedding is going to be flawless and I promise that your photos will be too!
