Andrew and Keren are married!

Last weekend we photographed Andrew and Keren's wedding at the Boettcher Mansion and it was such an amazing day. Andrew and Keren did a few things that I've never seen at a wedding before, each was unique and completely fit their style and personality. One of the really neat things about weddings is to see each couple put their own style into their wedding day. Here are a few of our favorite pictures...

Something a little different...

When I first started in photography, probably about 12 or 13 years ago, all I photographed were landscapes. I still love nature and outdoor photography and I really love when I get out and take those type of pictures. The principals of photography are all the same but photographing mountains is very different from photographing weddings. We were in Winter Park last weekend and I had the chance to get out and take some pictures. I hope you enjoy them...

I hope everyone has a great Memorial Day weekend. Jess and I are out of town for a few days and then we have a great wedding on Sunday which we will post next week. Talk to you soon.

My Mom and Dad

Are truly amazing and inspiring people. They were at the wedding we photographed last weekend so I made sure to get a few quick images of the two of them. My mom doesn't really like having her picture taken so I tried to get some while she wasn't looking. However she seemed to spot me almost every single time. I don't have as many pictures of my parents as I would like so I've been trying to get more of them. My mom wanted to have the final say as to which pictures would make the blog but I assured her I would only put up good ones. So here's a few...

See what I mean about her having the uncanny ability to know when I was taking her picture...

I love this shot because these expressions really capture my parents relationship. If you know them, then you know what I'm talking about.

Anna and Rob are married!

We photographed Anna and Rob's wedding on Saturday and it was amazing; we really couldn't have asked for a more perfect day. Everything came together so well and the love and excitement among everyone was so evident. My sister and Anna have been friends since kindergarten so I've known her for many years and it was so cool to see her so happy. Their wedding was at Pinehurst Country Club, it was our first time shooting there and we hope to go back.

Anna called me about two days after they got engaged in October of last year and was already planning their wedding. I mentioned how wonderful it was that they started the planning so soon. And she said something that has really stuck with me, she said..."He proposed because he wanted to marry me and I said yes because I want to marry him, so there's no reason to wait."

This simple statement is really incredible because you should be excited about your wedding; in fact you should be ecstatic about your wedding. We have been so lucky to work with couples who are truly excited about their wedding and in love with each other.

Thanks Anna and Rob for allowing us to photograph your wedding day and thank you for being such an amazing example of what true love is.

Here's a few of our favorite images from the day...

This is definitely one of my favorite shots from the day.

She was getting a bit nervous right before the ceremony and her hands wouldn't stop moving.

I love watching the parents during the ceremony because they are always so full of emotion. This is Rob's mom.

This was their first private moment right after the ceremony and there was so much emotion. They were hugging each other so tightly I wasn't sure if they were going to let go.

Phoenix was quite the ham all day.

This is my sister who was one of the maids of honor looking over her toast. She found a diary entry from 1993 entitled "Anna's wedding notes," in which she had started writing her toast for the wedding. It was very cool.

LeeAnn and Eric are getting married...

I met LeeAnn and Eric at Chautauqua Park in Boulder a few days ago for their engagement pictures. If you've never been to the park I would definitely recommend going, it's tucked right up against the Flatirons and is a great place for a hike. LeeAnn and Eric couldn't have been easier to work with and we hit it off right away. I know their wedding is going to be amazing and we can't wait for it in August. Here's a few pictures...

Make sure to check back tomorrow for Anna and Rob's amazing wedding photos.
