How do I even begin to describe Ash and Phil’s Seawell Grand Ballroom DCPA Wedding? The mother-of-the-bride, Lisa Cook of Affair with Flair, is one of the best of the best at putting on stylish weddings and events in Colorado. Ash, the bride, is the ‘Ash’ of Ash & Dans – running her own stylish fashion business in New York City. And Phil, the groom, well… he’s a Jets fan.
AH! I can’t believe I haven’t posted this one yet!! Stephanie and Samuel’s wedding at the Broadmoor in Colorado Springs last fall was OFF. THE. CHARTS. Or, ‘on fleek’ as my daughter might say?! (I may have passed the age where I can say those words and be taken seriously…) Anyway, you’ll see for yourself in the images below. And by ‘images’ I mean a whole lotta them. It’s so hard to narrow down all the photos I love!
Over the last ten years, for whatever reason, I feel like I’ve become the go to guy for Indian wedding photography in Denver, Colorado. I’ve had the privilege of photographing so many Indian weddings in Denver that I’ve lost count. What makes this fact incredibly special to me is when I walk into the ceremony room full of guests and I recognize so many Brides and Grooms and so many parents and families that I’ve photographed before. It’s a true blessing to me and a great honor.
Katie and Danny grew up just a few doors down from one another and are longtime sweethearts. They’re close. Their families are close. It’s an incredibly special and unique bond. Photographing their wedding at Holy Ghost Church in Denver, and their reception at the Ritz-Carlton in Denver, was a real joy and honor.
I’m so excited to show off Emily and Ross’s wedding at Spruce Mountain Ranch! It was beautiful, it was fun, and it was my first wedding shot almost exclusively on the new Sony A7RII and Zeiss Batis lenses (for you photo geeks who care). This wedding featured missing pants, a broken zipper, baby bumps, and the perfect wedding day weather!
Happiness. I’m feeling it all over. And meeting up with Emily and Ross for their Colorado Mountain Engagement Photo session has nearly everything to do with it. The mountains. A spring night. Green grass. Blue sky. A beautiful couple. Love. (A new camera (Sony A7RII) and some new lenses (Batis 85 and 25)…)
The Broadmoor is just one of three properties in the state to receive four or five diamond status from AAA Colorado for forty straight years – so, yes, I love photographing weddings there! I had the pleasure of meeting up there recently with Stephanie and Samuel to photograph their Broadmoor engagement session, but we weren’t alone… Lola joined in on the fun as well!
A couple of weeks ago Emily and I went away for a long weekend in paradise. The following are some images around Oahu, Hawaii where Emily and I went on three great hikes, snorkeled twice, and to top it off – I got to photograph a wedding! I’d love to go back and enjoy the warmth, the ocean, the culture, the food. But mostly at this moment I’m just craving some Matsumoto Hawaiian Shave Ice.
I’ve never used the word ‘swoon’ before, but as I considered how to describe Dara and Charlie’s wedding at the Richards-Hart Estate in Wheat Ridge ‘swoon’ is the word that stuck. It’s how I feel when I look at these photographs and it’s what my heart did as I witnessed these two commit their lives to one another.
