Oh boy, oh boy! The New Year is officially upon us and I am already excited about the amazing weddings I have on my calendar for 2014. I thought I would start this year with an engagement feature as I know the Holidays are always a season for lots of proposals. I generally do most of my heavy booking in January and February of each year for that summer and fall, so if you are newly engaged and looking for your photographer, the time do so is NOW!
Tara and Jared are getting married at The Holy Ghost with a black-tie reception at the Brown Palace this coming August 2014. They wanted to get their engagement photos done at a time when they could take advantage of the gorgeous fall colors in Colorado so we chose on of my favorite locations, Standley Lake, in Arvada near my home and once again, it did not disappoint! It was an absolutely gorgeous day and the colors were a-blazin’! But the backdrop aside, this couple is to-die-for, all on their own! Their energy and love for each other is so obvious, I can’t help but smile every time I look at these images of them.
Tara and Jared met 13 years ago when Tara went to middle school with Jared’s twin brothers and Jared went to high school with Tara’s sister. They re-united as adults in 2011 when Jared moved back from Las Vegas and Tara moved back from CA. The saw each other out and about downtown, went on couple of dates, and have been together ever since! Jared proposed to Tara at the top of the Empire State building and they both agree that was the most exciting time in either of their lives thus far. I can’t wait to capture this gorgeous couple on what is sure to be a wedding day of their dreams! Thank you to Tara and Jared for choosing me. We are going to have a blast and together!!
