Published in 'Destination I Do' Magazine

I
t's always great to see my clients' beautiful weddings get published. Especially when it's a destination wedding as lovely as Reagan and Chris's wedding at the Four Seasons in Punta Mita, Mexico. Reagan teamed up with the people there and knocked it out of the park so to speak. Gorgeous details, a ceremony on the beach, live band, great food. Perfection!

And now, in the latest edition of 'Destination I Do', Reagan and Chris get to share their wedding with the entire country! Congrats!

Engagement Session in Denver | Jessica and Ryan

W
ith just a couple weeks to go now before the wedding I managed to catch up with Jessica and Ryan for their 'Engagement' shoot. (Can we really call it that? They've been engaged for a while now and their wedding is, wow, twelve days away!) They both were looking super stylish and both of them have the best smiles. What a fun night doing what I do with such a fun and beautiful couple!

A few minutes in and it began to rain. We waited... waited... and finally I said, let's jump out and do some in the rain. WITH the umbrella (even if it did happen to break a few days prior). These turned out to be some of my favorite of the night!

Wedding in Denver | Beth and Alex

I
simply love it when my clients bring the style and at this last weekend's wedding in Denver, Beth was bringin' it! Check out the starfish sparkles on her dress.

Beth's father had a few words for both of them when he gave away his daughter's hand to Alex. I wish I could've heard what he said.... Errr, no I don't. I probably would've been crying through the rest of the ceremony. OR, laughing hysterically. (Beth's father has a wonderful sense of humor!)

Friday Fun

M
y family returned from vacation last weekend and it's so good to have them home! As I promised I would do here, I was able to get my hands on Emily's and Rose's cameras and I found a few photos of me and the family having fun on our trip this summer.

A kind stranger shot this with our camera and I'm thankful to have it to remember this moment. (Funny side note: No, that is not a GI Joe toy down by our feet...)

And it looks like Emily took this one of me and the kids. If you've ever hiked to the delicate arch before you'll remember that the path is lined with these stone piles to mark the way. My children were really intrigued by this and wanted to build one of their own. Instead, we combined two smaller piles into a larger one.

In a bit of randomness I'd love to recommend everyone go and see 'Inception'! I haven't done a two-cent review since this last one in March when I ran down my top 10 films of 2009, but there's no better occasion than now, with the release of this brilliant film, to throw out my two-cents.
inception
[ 0 ]

I read that Christopher Nolan spent 10 years writing this script and as with just about anything - when a creative talent invests that much effort into a work of art, undoubtedly this creation will be something spectacular. If you've seen the trailers then you know this film is about dreaming. In trying to say anything more than that, I am at a complete loss. My guess is that this will be the most complex and deeply intellectual film we'll see all year. And yet, isn't it weird to call what amounts to a sci-fi film about dreaming an 'intellectual' film!? And that's just it, this film takes us on a ride like nothing else I can recall since 'The Matrix'. Wholly inexplainable, and completely brilliant. I'll predict now that this will be my 2nd favorite film of the year when all is said and done. Why #2? Because I'm a big fan of everything Sofia Coppola does and I'm really looking forward to her next one, 'Somewhere'. My two cents: Stop reading this and go see 'Inception' now!

Finally, one more photo I took at the park last night. :)

Colorado Wedding Photography | Kara and Erich

T
his last weekend Kara and Erich had the ultimate Colorado Wedding at the lovely Cielo at Castle Pines. Surrounded by their closest friends and family, they tied the fly...er...knot on July 10th, 2010. This was a very special date as it's the anniversary of both Kara's and Erich's parents! That is beyond awesome!

(A big thanks to Shannon at Center Avenue Imaging for shooting this one with me.)

I love it when my clients opt for a 'first look'! Seeing each other before the ceremony can still be a very special moment. And usually it relieves lots of 'time crunch' and stress that comes with doing things the old way. Not only that, but it usually means more time for awesome photos of the Bride and Groom as well!

Yes, it was raining. Yes, I was the only one whining about it. Not because I don't like it or I was worried about my gear. But because I wanted to make sure Kara was ok outside in the rain - with her dress and makeup, etc. I know some brides can be very particular about that - but not Kara. Here was her reaction!!

Erich's a pretty darn good dancer and he was flipping ladies up in the air and in circles, head over heels, faster than you can imagine. But this time, I don't think she was ready to flip so she grabbed on tight. No flippity-flip!

Denver Wedding Photography | Brittany and Jonas

B
rittany and Jonas celebrated their Denver Wedding at Mile High Station last weekend. It is one of my very favorite venues in terms of matching my personal style. What I mean is - if my wife and I were to have another wedding I'd probably choose Mile High Station myself for the venue - Love it!!

Brittany and Jonas looked wonderful and are obviously so happy together. Jonas might have been overdosing on the 'happy' since he's from Germany and they had won their world cup game earlier in the day. (Good thing they weren't married 4 days later when Germany met Spain - sorry Jonas!!)

Vacation to California with the Wilson Family!

I
am so sorry. As I thought about this post I realized just how much I've been focusing on talking wedding photography and just how long it's been since I've given any kind of update on the Wilson family! To those of you who are disappointed by this I apologize - but wait no more, here's a quick look into the Wilson family's recent vacation to California (and Moab, and Vegas...).

We took off on a Sunday afternoon and made our first stop in Moab, Utah, hiking to the delicate arch. I didn't take any photos as Rose was shooting away with her camera. I let her do all the 'work' on this hike and maybe I'll get a chance to post some of what she captured.

Day two we stopped in Vegas. I wanted a place with no casino and where the kids could have some fun. So, the Four Seasons in Las Vegas was the place! Staying there we got to use the awesome pools (wave pool, lazy river) at Mandalay Bay and enjoy Five Star service with no casino interference. The kids were given stuffed ponies and a plate of candy with their name on it as well as their own set of bathroom supplies (chocolate shampoo!) and kid sized bathrobes to use. Pretty awesome!

On Day 3 we made it to grammy and gramps' house in California. I'm jealous of California photographers. The light is so much easier than Colorado!

And - tada! - here's Cefas! Can't believe I haven't posted any photos of him for months! He's walking now and it's like his whole personality is opening up. Love my little boy!!

And here's Philip - my big boy. Still the happiest little kid you'll ever meet. I have no idea what's in his hair.

Rose is an awesome piano player! Her teacher says she has some true God-given talent and I'm so happy she's exploring this and enjoying it. While we were there she did a little recital for us.

One day we went to visit our good friends the Aszterbaums who happen to live on a small farm of sorts. Rose loved helping with the chores which included feeding the Chickens, Goats, and Pig and collecting eggs. Here's the morning haul. (And it looks like there are a few baby carrots from the garden in there too!)

I was showing Joey Aszterbaum my new Canon 1DMKIV and, either accidentally or intentionally, he snapped this shot of me. It's the only one I've got of me until I check out Rose's photos and so... here it is. Wish I could've posed or something but this will have to do. No, I don't shave while on vacation. Didn't even take a razor. Of course, by the end my neck was really itching and so I did shave my neck... with Emily's razor.

Speaking of Emily... She would never in a million years let me post this - but she's still on vacation and I'm here working and so she can't stop me. And that's our dog Taylor who, without the love of Emily, would've been kicked out of the Wilson family a long time ago.

And oh how I love this last photo here. So much so that I took over Emily's facebook account last week and made it her new profile pic.
