Fifteen of Allen + Jason's closest family and friends traveled to Denver from all over the nation to celebrate with them.  I was lucky to spend the morning with all of them and document the marriage of two incredible men.

Their closest friends and family traveled from all over to celebrate and the Black Forest was the perfect setting for Cassie & Steven's intimate wedding.     Cloudy skies and raindrops added the right amount of romance and even a little adventure to their day.  Thank you Cassie & Steven for having me capture your beautiful wedding!

New Studio | let's celebrate!

I've just finished moving into my new studio space and it feels GREAT!  It was probably the easiest move I've ever had to do...I'm just across the hall from my previous studio!  Thanks to my family, Ryan and Mariah  for helping me get everything settled in.  I am so excited to have this bigger space to continue creating portraits for all my amazing clients. letsCelebrate

So let's celebrate!  I'm hosting an OPEN HOUSE during the Santa Fe Art Walk on Friday June 6th here at my studio

(771 Santa Fe Dr #200 Denver, CO 80204)

View the invite HERE for more information.

The Art Walk is a great event for couples, families, groups of friends...basically everyone will enjoy it!  There are food trucks galore, the galleries have their doors wide open with exciting new pieces displayed and the creative vibe is very alive!

Janine Gibbons Designs will have her beautiful jewelry on display at my studio that evening too!  This is your last opportunity to attend a Janine Gibbons Design Trunk Show before she moves back down to Durango...I own 6 of Janine's pieces and absolutely love all the compliments I get when I wear them!


I hope to see you there!

Creative Live with Sue Bryce & Felix Kunze

Last week I was fortunate to attend the Creative Live Studios in Seattle as a student during the class Lighting Challenge: Natural Light vs. Studio Light If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram you were probably bombarded with my selfies and pics of the class (sorry!) ... I was really excited to be there!

This class was co-taught by one of my very favorite portrait photographers, Sue Bryce, and Felix Kunze.  I was 100% in my element among 9 other students (all whom are photogeeks like me).  It was an amazing opportunity to learn new techniques and reinforce all the skills I already have.  I made new friends from all over the country and left there feeling like I can accomplish any photographic vision that is inside my head! I am really looking forward to using these new techniques with future clients and continuing to create beautiful portraits.

I am so grateful to have spent this quality time among other portrait photographers whose passion and motivation inspire me to create!2014-05-26_0002

the value of online reviews

1655550_10153926669160456_1681459957_o_stompedOver the past few months I've been lucky to get to travel to some awesome US cities - mostly for work purposes but also with a bit of fun!

  • In January I traveled to Phoenix, AZ for the annual Imaging USA Conference hosted by PPA (which I am a proud member of for the past 3 years).


  • In March I traveled to Las Vegas for the worlds largest photography conference hosted by WPPI. It's basically an opportunity for all of us photogs to totally geek out on all the new camera equipment and meet our idols in the biz.


  • And in April I traveled to Los Angeles to visit my best friend and do a little wedding planning. She is getting married at the end of the month and I am her maid-of-honor! It's going to be so different being in front of the camera at a wedding - I'm excited!

But you know what I realized after visiting all three of these cities?

I found myself using my smart phone to look up local businesses and check out their customer reviews.  Almost every time I needed to find a good boutique, restaurant or bar I would make my decision based on how many stars the business received on Yelp or Google.

Since then I've made it a habit to leave reviews whenever I visit a new spot because I experienced first hand how valuable those reviews are! Just doin' my part to help my fellow consumers out there!

If you can relate to the value of these reviews I would be so grateful to read

a quick review from you on my Yelp, Facebook or Google page!

Eboni & Jason | married

What an amazing day...Eboni & Jason's celebration was filled with so many emotions.  It's hard to say there was a favorite part but if I were to name it, it would be their first dance.  Eboni wrote and sang a song for her husband-to-be (featured in the slideshow below) and surprised him right there on the dance floor.  The whole room was clapping with tears of joy running down their cheeks (me included). Thank you Eboni & Jason for having me be a part of your beautiful day.  I love you guys!

Lacey + Josh | married

Looking over the mountain side into Grand Lake was the perfect setting for Josh & Lacey's amazing wedding.  Sun beams pushed through looming rain clouds and gave us a very comfortable afternoon to celebrate these two. Congrats L & J!  Thanks for having me be  a part of your day!
