Travel is one my absolute favorite things in the world, right alongside photography. So when I get the opportunity to travel for weddings I’m always ecstatic. Kallie and Ryan are locals here in Colorado and were planning their wedding where Kallie had spent most of her childhood, in Cape Cod, Massachusetts. When they started looking for photographers they realized that they wanted someone they could have a more personal relationship with, and would have more opportunity to see in person before the ceremony. They started looking for people near where they lived in Boulder and found my name! I’m so glad they did. We immediately hit it off and I was on my way to Falmouth for their fall wedding.

These two had one of those really spectacular weddings that perfectly walk that line of giving tradition it’s due, while remaining just unconventional enough to reflect who they are and where they came from. Add that to a wedding full of big personalities, great style, and a truly incredible location and BAM – you’ve got a winner in the bag. It was impressive to see these two interact, having been together for a few years now, already having started a family (See Myla below), and just being so comfortable in their own skin. It was just a great time all around. But enough of my jabber, see for yourself.


Autumn and Josh had a really fantastic wedding. Period. From start to finish, all the details were well thought-out and worked perfectly together. The ceremony and reception were at the Westin – Downtown Denver, which is not only gorgeous but a close walk to some great photo locations as you can see below. Both Dana and Ashely at Revel & Bloom really kicked up the planning efforts and made my job easy, and Sweet Pea Flowers did a stunning job with the flowers. Of course I’ve got to thank my awesome assistant Steve Remich who really grabbed some amazing shots as well. But the real thanks goes to the couple, Josh and Autumn, who are incredibly lively and photogenic. These guys are the real deal in love, and they’re perfect for each other.


There’s so much to be said about this wedding I’m not sure where to start.  Whether it’s with Sarah and Steve’s ability to endure? Their amazing family and friends who rallied around them? Their amazing attitudes leading up to, during, and following what could have been, and actually was, a disaster wedding? or maybe just the fact that they got married in the middle of a 500 year flood?

Never mind that their original wedding site was underwater (along with their apartment!) – the dress, suit, and marriage license had all miraculously survived. Sarah and Steve took it as a sign and made the decision that their wedding would survive too. And boy am I glad.

Instead of talking too much more I’ll just leave you with photos and just say that these two are an amazing pair that dealt so well with impossible conditions that they deserve a lifetime of good karma. I really consider myself lucky to have been part of it all – it’s not often that stories like this happen.

As far as classic Denver wedding venues go, the Oxford Hotel is among the best, and Herb and Elizabeth’s wedding was no disappointment. These two are such a cool couple – high energy and high style with their sheik yellow and grey wedding colors, worldly belt buckles, and adorably obedient-ish dogs. These guys ran me through the ringer though, always on the move from one activity to the next, I actually had to drag them outside to get photos of just the two of them after the ceremony. We did a quick session out front of the hotel and Union Station and I let them back inside to party…can’t say I blame them. To say the least, everyone had a great time and I was honored to be part of their wedding. Cheers!

A few weeks back I got asked to head South to possibly my favorite part of Colorado to shoot some engagement photos for an awesome couple, who both happen to be chefs. They were trouble though and forced me to work in the cold, snowy weather, sneak into a condemned mine, and eat their delicious home cooked meals (actually I’m pretty sure all of those things were my idea). Anyway, it was a great time and I’m really looking forward to shooting their mountain wedding this summer. Thanks guys!
