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 »

All About the Veils

I have been pretty fortunate to have spent a long time photographing destination weddings all over the world. I started thinking about all the different wedding veils I have come across over the past decade. While the overall trend seemed to be for years that the veil was going away, it has recently made a strong come back.

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.

Kristine and Alan’s Winter Wedding in Beaver Creek

 

Venue: Beaver Creek Chapel

Kristine and Alan planned an intimate winter wedding in Beaver Creek Colorado with close family and friends. I think winter weddings in Colorado are some of my favorite to photograph. The light is usually softer and lower in the sky, the contrast between snow and earth, and the intimacy of winter, all contribute to making winter weddings a joy to be part of.

Michelle and Chad’s Beaver Creek Wedding

 

Venue and Catering: Westin Riverfront Resort in Beaver Creek, Colorado

Hair and Makeup: Spa Anjali

Chad and Michelle are huge cyclists, so they decided to have a bike themed fall wedding in Beaver Creek. The day was a great reflection of their personalities. I had the chance to go mountain biking with Chad and his friends in the morning before the ceremony, which was a great way to start the day. Afterwards I met Michelle at Spa Anjali for hair and makeup. They did most of the decorations and setup the photo book themselves. One of the highlights was when they did their grand entrance on a bicycle weaving in and out of the tables.
