“This is my favorite shot from 2015. It was taken at the T Lazy 7 Ranch in Aspen in September. They were exiting the ceremony, and the guests were throwing rose petals as confetti. For me as a photographer, it is great when a couple has a long ceremony aisle like this couple did, which means there is enough time to get some great shots.”

“I love this shot! This wedding was held at a home in Castle Rock, and this was a beautiful moment that was captured spontaneously as we were searching for the perfect location to shoot. An unexpected storm came and blessed us with an amazingly moody sky.”

“I always to try to capture a couple from a different angle to create a unique portrait, and oftentimes, the best way to do that is to climb a tree to get to a new vantage point. Over the years, I’ve gotten pretty good at climbing aspens since sometimes they’re the only trees around. Necessity is the mother of invention! Amanda and Ivan put a huge priority on photography and were game to do just about anything, including laying down on the ground in their wedding clothes after the ceremony. If you’re careful about how you arrange a wedding dress, you can get a shot like this done on a wedding day and keep the dirt and mess to a minimum. I shot this from about 15 to 20 feet up in the tree—had I gone any higher, I think the tree may have fallen over. This was their favorite image from the wedding.”

“This wedding combined two families who were comprised of art-loving musicians. They came to me wanting a family photo that looked like an album cover. They thought I would think the request was a little crazy, but it was totally in line with what I love to do. Making personal, meaningful artwork is one of my favorite parts about photographing weddings.”

“This definitely sticks out as my favorite wedding image, not only because of how it looks, but also because of the emotion portrayed. The bride and groom, Becky and Bobby, are one of the coolest Denver couples I have ever met, and the ceremony and reception took place in a charming shared backyard space in the Highland neighborhood. The ceremony was so heartfelt and personal, and I was thrilled to be able to photograph it from a different perspective and stand behind the couple, capturing their guests, as well. I love the lush green grass and the fact that they are backlit with the golden sun peeking through the trees. Every time I see this image I’m reminded of the real love between these two, and it makes me happy.”
