Catherine and Matt’s Arapahoe Basin Wedding

Venue: Arapahoe Basin Black Mountain Lodge

Music and MC: Drew Reges

 

I always love photographing Arapahoe Basin Weddings. Black Mountain Lodge is a wonderful mid size venue, and the views are really out of this world. I was pretty excited when Catherine and Matt approached me about photographing their wedding at Arapahoe Basin. During the short summer season, there are wildflowers everywhere here, and the sunsets are pretty spectacular. One of the things I enjoyed most about this wedding is how Catherine and Matt really took care of their guests. They had yard games and s’mores outside for the kids, a late night snack bar for people that got hungry later, and quiet areas for people who didn’t want to dance. They also included functional wedding favors like sunglasses. They also picked the perfect time of day for pictures. Continue reading »

Lord of the Ring (shot)

One of those things that often gets overlooked in wedding photos are the wedding rings. It is almost a separate category of wedding photography. Most people think about wedding photography as some combination of photojournalism and formal portraiture. Then maybe a few detail photos of things like place settings, the cake, and shoes are thrown in. But the rings don’t really fit into that category either.

One of the main reasons the ring shot is in a category in and of itself is because it requires an entirely different skill set and equipment from the rest of wedding photography. For starters, rings are a lot smaller than the rest of the wedding details. That is going to require specialized photography equipment; particularly macro lenses and sometimes special lighting. It also takes an eye for finding backgrounds and methods of “posing” the rings. Continue reading »

The Wedding

Jayson and Charlotte both live in Denver, and decided on a mini destination wedding in Beaver Creek, Colorado.

That meant Pimms cocktails at the Friday welcome cocktail party and tea biscuit flavored truffles as favors. Continue reading »

Cole’s Senior Photos

 

In addition to changing leaves, sweaters, and watching people get excited about pumpkin spice everything, my favorite thing about fall is senior portrait photography. Cole and his mother came to me a few months ago with some photo ideas. Cole is from Wisconsin, and really wanted to get some photos that captured the Colorado outdoor experience. He was especially interested in showing his love for Breckenridge and fly fishing. So we thought, why not go fishing in downtown Breckenridge? Continue reading »

Anatomy of an Image #16

It’s been a little while since I did one of these anatomy posts, so I wanted to start back up with a pretty abstract image. I was photographing the couple posing on the banks of the Eagle River in Beaver Creek, Colorado. I was getting some nice full body shots of the couple and their reflection in the river, but I wanted to try something a little more abstract. I found a place where the water was still enough to try to get a clear reflection, but still had enough movement to allow some motion blur of the aspen leaves swirling in an eddy.
