{Jeni & Ethan} :: Denver, CO Maternity Photographer

Today is my friend Jeni’s due date and I couldn’t be more excited for her and her husband Ethan as they await the moment when they get to meet their baby girl.

I can’t help but think back to their special maternity photo shoot last month. These two were calm, relaxed, and enjoyed a peaceful moment together on a Sunday morning.

Jeni and Ethan – I will be thinking of you guys today and all weekend. Enjoy looking back at these photos of you both waiting for your baby girl.

Molly & Rob {Marriage Proposal} :: Vagabond Ranch | Granby, Colorado

When I decided to become a professional photographer I never dreamed that I would have the unique and special opportunity to capture one of the most intimate moments of a close friend’s life. One week ago, I had the honor of watching and capturing photos of my friend Molly’s engagement to Rob. Operation VRS (Vagabond Ranch Surprise) was the code phrase we used throughout our careful planning process. Rob thought of everything – the ring which combined diamonds from both Molly’s grandmother and his grandmother, the fireworks, which he drove across the country from Texas, the dinner from Hapa Sushi, the location of their first date, a romantic two-person cabin set amongst a backdrop of fresh fallen snow, and a photographer to capture each moment as it unfolded.

I cannot even put into words how happy I am for these two, and how special it was to see their love transform right before my eyes. Molly and Rob, I wish you so many memories just like your special proposal to come in future years. This is just the beginning of your adventure together!

Sarah & John {engaged} :: Denver, Colorado Wedding Photographer

Sarah, John and Copper – what an awesome team! Sarah has that contagious smile, laugh and energetic spirit. John, her perfect match, is fun-loving, calm and cool. Add their dog Copper to the mix and this trio is unstoppable…well, until the pup decides he wants to chase something in the park!

One of Sarah and John’s first dates was by bike and still to this day cycling through downtown Denver remains this couple’s weekend activity of choice. I now have some serious cruiser bike envy after photographing these two joy-riding through town!

Thank you Sarah and John for inviting me to capture you both at a time when your love is off the charts. Seriously, you two are meant to be. I hope you both enjoy this preview from your engagement shoot.

Congratulations Kiersti & Pete!

It was an honor to photograph your wedding at the base of the Maroon Bells on Saturday. Your ceremony, which was filled with so much love from your friends and family, will always be remembered as epic, intimate, and just awe dropping beautiful. On your wedding day, the only thing that could stack up against this iconic Colorado mountain backdrop is your obvious love for one another. I wish you all the best and cannot wait to share the rest of your gorgeous photos soon!

Brent & Ashley {Marriage Proposal} :: Eldorado Springs, Colorado

I will forever say yes to photographing a marriage proposal – wow was that fun today! Thank you, Brent for letting me take part in your special marriage proposal to Ashley.

Brent had a detailed plan for the day and boy did everything work out! He dropped down on one knee at the summit of the Rattlesnake Gulch Trail at the Continental Divide Overlook in Eldorado Springs, CO this morning and Ashley said yes!

These photos speak for themselves – two people, deeply in love, ready to share the rest of their lives together. I wish you all the best Brent and Ashley!

Mission accomplished!
