Living a Big Life in a Dangerous World.
It feels like it happens all the time now. Trucks driving into partygoers in France. A shooting at a nightclub in Orlando. Shootings at schools in the U.S. And now, a bombing outside of a concert in England.
It’s not even a surprise anymore.
These events are starting to run together for me. Sure, some stand out as being espec ...

I have a thing for laid-back, intimate weddings and Keavy and Andy's Devil's Thumb Ranch wedding fit that bill exactly. This was a beautiful, relaxed day full of emotion and laughter - and it was pretty much perfection.
There was a point during cocktail hour when Keavy looked around at their guests and said something to the effe ...

A year with the world’s worst/best dog
When we lost our sweet Maddie dog last year we knew that we wanted to add another pup to our family right away. No dog could ever replace our girl but few things mend a broken heart like puppy kisses. Also, our older girl, Spotty, needed a playmate.
Finding the right dog wasn't as easy as we thought it would be. Adopting a dog i ...

When I first met up with Gian and Lawrence to talk about shooting their engagement photos and Estes Park wedding I knew we were a perfect match. They had just moved to Colorado (like, two days before) and were throwing themselves into the lifestyle - exploring the mountains and learning their way around. We clicked instantly.

Eric + Donna // St. Mary’s Glacier // Colorado Engagement Photographer
Eric and Donna knew they wanted a snowy mountain location for their engagement session. After throwing around a couple ideas we decided to make the quick hike up to St. Mary's Glacier. We were ready for an adventure but I'm not sure any of us were prepared for just how cold it was going to be!
I like cold weather and I adore sho ...

Picking a Wedding Photographer (and why I might not be the one for you)
I'm probably a little biased but I think picking a wedding photographer is one of the most important decisions you will make about your day.

The Schwartz Family // Elk Meadows Open Space // Colorado Family Vacation Photographer
When Jess contacted me about doing a family photo session during their Colorado vacation I knew I was in. Jess and Ross were coming with their two 18 month old twins all the way from Tampa ... and none of them had ever seen snow.
As a former Floridian who didn't really experience snow until my senior year of high school, I total ...

Mindy + Taylor’s Brainard Lake Wedding // Boulder Wedding Photographer
Mindy and Taylor's Brainard Lake wedding is probably one of the days that I get asked about the most. They chose this location, about 45 minutes from Boulder, for their laid-back boho inspired day - and it was perfect.
This was an itty bitty super non-formal affair. The groom and his guys arrived that morning to pick out a spot ri ...
