Stacie & Blake | Married | June 14

Some weddings are just fun to photograph, and this was one of those weddings. I shot Stacie and Blake’s engagement photos a few weeks ago, and one of the first things I noticed about them was that they make each other laugh (not to mention they laugh at my corny jokes). This real, genuine enjoyment of each other carried on into their wedding day on Saturday. Before their ceremony, both Stacie and Blake had a calm confidence to them as they prepared for their nuptials, and then after there ceremony, it was clear that they just enjoy each other. This joy of being together really makes for some wonderful, authentic photos.

I was so honored to be a small part of their special day, and I am so excited to go through all of the photos that we took. All the best to you Stacie and Blake. May God bless you in your marriage!

 

Their ceremony took place at the gorgeous Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic Church in Littleton.

 

After the ceremony we made it off to nearby Ketring Park after dodging a few golf ball-sized pieces of hail. Thank goodness we had a window a good weather to take some fun group shots. Thank you so much to my assistant Amanda for her help especially during these photos!

The night concluded at Maggiano’s Denver South. It was a fabulous reception with great people and great music. One of my particular favorite pictures is the bouquet “catch” right in the face. You’ve got to love capturing moments like that on camera!

Reed and Quinn | Family Photos | Littleton

These two siblings, Reed and Quinn, must practice camera awareness in their spare time. Never have I had a photo session quite as easy as this one! They didn’t need to be prompted to smile. Heck, they needed very little coaching on how to pose. It felt like I blinked my eyes, and these two would be setting up their next pose. What a fun photo session!

I absolutely love so many of these photos. Reed and Quinn are two wonderful playmates, and they’re cute as a button too! (I have seen that many “cute buttons” before, so maybe it would be more fitting to say these siblings are cuter than buttons!). Either way, I had a ton of fun snapping a few photos for these guys. Happy fall everyone!

The Ojalas Anniversary Photos | Chatfield State Park

A few weeks ago, I met up with my good friends Steve and Catherine Ojala to take their anniversary photos at Chatfield State Park down in Littleton, Colorado. The Ojalas never had any engagement photos taken, so these portraits will help fill that void as they come upon their first anniversary this December (hence the “1″ in a number of the photos below)! Leaves on most of the surrounding trees were still at their peak providing a beautiful backdrop to this fantastic couple. Steve is a calm, even-tempered guy (like me), and Catherine is just a fun person to be around. She had Steve smiling (almost) the entire time, and she had me cracking up too. Fun fun.

Be sure to wish them a happy anniversary. Here’s to many more you two! God bless!
