We're leaving, but you can follow us!

We're leaving tomorrow morning to photograph a great wedding in Sunriver, Oregon and we couldn't be more excited. We'll be gone for the weekend but of course I'll have pictures when we get back. I won't be updating the blog over the weekend but you can follow us either on Facebook (if we're friends) or through Twitter. I'm just trying Twitter so I'll do my best to keep it updated; make sure to check those both out if you're interested.

Our new blog is right around the corner and it's going to have some cool features (like facebook and twitter integration) so I'm anxious for everyone to try those out and see if it's worthwhile. I have a few ideas as to how I'll make them useful and worth your time so make sure to check back.

I hope everyone has a great weekend and I'll update soon!

Go out and buy 1 or 2 or 5 of these right now!

Two weekends ago our hot water heater went out and produced a dangerous amount of carbon monoxide in our home. Luckily we were gone so nothing happened to us. I had a major issue with XCEL Energy which I'll talk more about later but the moral of the story is go out and spend some money on carbon monoxide detectors for your home. Put one near your gas appliances and definitely in your bedroom. It's a colorless, odorless gas that can kill you. As the XCEL worker told me "you don't want to wake up dead."

Seriously though if you don't have them in your home please make it a priority to go out and buy a few of them.

Julia and Greg are married!

Jessica and I were lucky enough to travel to Omaha for Julia and Greg's amazing wedding. They had it at the Lauritzen Botanical Gardens and everything was just perfect. We had never met Julia and Greg until their wedding day but that didn't make the slightest difference because they were so inviting and such genuine people. They had a gift basket waiting for us at the hotel and we were invited to the day after BBQ at Julia's dads house. We feel very lucky to have had the opportunity to meet and get to know Julia and Greg; they are incredibly conscious people and they made sure everyone was comfortable and taken care of. Here's a few of our favorites...

Julia looked great.

Jessica took this amazing ring shot.

Jess got this great image of Julia getting ready.

I love this picture of Julia's sister looking back at her before she went down the aisle.

The guys rings are always difficult to put on...I'm not sure why.

They looked great together.

They had a pretty big bridal party but I think we got some interesting, casual shots.

I love this dancing shot.

I have to say a huge thanks to my friend Jon for introducing us to Julia and Greg.

Jon and Holly are married!

We photographed Jon and Holly's wedding at The Tapestry House in Fort Collins a few weeks ago and it turned out perfectly. Jessica was one of Holly's bridesmaids and we've known Jon and Holly for about 7 years. Jess and Holly were roommates in college and Jon lived on the same floor as I did (Newsom 1SW.)

It's always extra special when you see two close friends get married and we were so happy to capture the excitement and the emotion of their wedding day.

Here's a few, actually a bunch, of our favorites...

Betty was one of the bridesmaids and one of our good friends. If we ever need an assistant I think we know where to go.

Steph was another bridesmaid and another one of our good friends. She did all the makeup and it turned out so amazing.

Good groomsmen letting the groom know what to do.

I love this shot because if you look closely on the left side you can just see Jon's hand coming in.

Jessica is the second one from the right. Isn't she gorgeous?

Jessica gave a great speech.

We photographed Mike and Carly's wedding almost 2 years ago and we basically owe the success of our business to them. Thanks guys, it was great to see you.

And of course one goofy group shot.
