Happy New Year, everyone. OK, in addition to being less nerdy. I have some more serious resolutions for 2012. In addition to the usual resolutions such as to ski and ride my bike more, loose weight, and spend more time with my family, this year I want to pay special attention to my art. Continue reading

Mari and Grace have been long time friends of Carin and I. I think one of their first dates was hiking with Carin and I around Boulder back in 2007. They joked about how well documented their relationship has been since I have often had a camera with my while hiking with them.
Like Carin and I, Grace and Mari and avid outdoor enthusiasts. They have helped me by modelling for outdoor photo shoots on several occasions that have entailed everything from yoga to rock climbing. Last year when I was teaching a fall colors photography workshop, the even agreed to help out by modelling for the entire workshop for some great fall climbing shots.
I am not always so fortunate to have had so much experience photographing a couple before their wedding, but this was a lucky exception. I was thrilled when they asked me to photograph their Denver wedding. Have known them so long I felt we clicked really well. It was easy for me to figure out what they were looking for, and after the last four years of me photographing them together, they knew they could trust me. These are the photos from their Denver wedding.
One of the best things about photographing a wedding for a friend is that there is a huge amount of trust. Mari and Grace allowed me to play and experiment. Some of the things we tried didn’t work out, but a lot of them turned out to be amazing. I was able to experiment more with black and white, traditional film, and infrared photography than I normally would at a wedding.
It also provided an opportunity for my wife, Carin, who has been studying photography for several years to shoot her first real wedding. Overall the wedding was a beautiful experience.
I would be remiss if I did not mention that same sex marriages are still not legally recognized in Colorado. To learn more about how you can support marriage equality in Colorado or your own state visit:

When Mari and Grace asked me to photograph their engagement session photos in Denver I was excited. I have become known for my outdoor adventure photography, and it seems most couples want to do their engagement photos with me on mountain bikes or skis. Of course I am not complaining since I happen to jump on every chance I get to take my camera out on my bike. But in this case I enjoyed the chance to change things up a bit and try something that was a little out of my comfort zone and do some urban photography. Of course I still tried to incorporate some natural elements, but I definitely pushed myself to experiment with the architecture that the city of Denver provided.

Less than a month after travelling to D.C. to photograph a wedding, I was invited to photograph another wedding in Laguna Beach, California. Pete and MJ had planned one of the coolest weddings I have ever attended. It was a wedding on the beach right before sunset followed by a small reception on the rooftop bar at The Hotel, La Casa Del Camino. This was my fifth destination wedding of 2009, but it was my first on a beach.
The only thing I didn’t like about this wedding was returning to all the snow in Colorado after spending the weekend on the beach.
