Puzzle Pieces

September 29, 2017 · Couples, Engagements, Film

“With her hand fit into mine
like puzzle pieces,
and her soft head
eased warmly onto
the bones of my shoulder,
the most soothing epiphany
washed over me;
people, better than places,
make the perfect home.”.

— Christopher Poindexter

Swept Away

September 15, 2014 · Couples, Engagements

Well you send my life a whirling 
Darling when you’re twirling 
On the floor 
Who cares about tomorrow? 
What more is tomorrow? 
Than another day.

Can’t wait for their backyard wedding in a few weeks – they’re so much fun, and adorably in love. Obviously.

Let me start by providing you with a checklist of what you need in order to proceed:

  1. Desire to see two gorgeous specimens of the human species
  2. More importantly, the desire to see above mentioned people be totally in love
  3. A blanket (maybe this one only applies to me. I suffer from chronic coldness.)
  4. A full cup of coffee or tea – its a long one!
  5. Prepare your EYEBALLS for some stuff thats gonna make you go whaaa? and aww and oh.em.gee.

I guess you can say that this couple totally brought their awesome with them…there was such ease and, just happy, between Hayley and Collin. Aaaand. they each chose jaw-dropping & intimate locations…

Hers: The Longmont airport hangar that she grew up at whilst her dad built airplanes as a hobby (what?! Gangsta.)

His: An off-the-beaten path spot for some fly fishing. The place was so awesome that I didn’t charge them the “I got wet and cold” fee.

Can’t wait till their wedding next year! No doubt they’ll be bringing the awesome then too. xx.

I just realized how many months I am behind on blogging. Oy. Will get back to it in a few weeks. For now, just a few previews.

Davona + Andy

July 19, 2012 · Engagements, Film

They are the loveliest people for miles and miles. Seriously, I have no idea how I got so lucky to have such aaaaaamazing clients. But I am way glad I am! Andy and Davona were a pleasure to photograph and I could have photographed them for hours; had the mosquitoes not been so attracted to the sweetness in the air from these two, I probably would have. I cannot wait until their wedding in just a few weeks – Davona is a craft and sew queen and is making a whole lot of homemade goodies for the wedding – which makes me giddy.

Andy made his own homebrew which they enjoyed during our session! :) And we unfortunately didn’t have enough time for the accordion to make an appearance, which is way sad, but hopefully the accordion will come around again in a future session.

Davona & Andy – you guys are awesome and am so excited that I get to be a part of your special day as your memory keeper. xx.

Just a little photography note (since I have been getting quite a few questions lately and its easier to answer them here): I do not use external light sources, just the big one in the sky (which this afternoon was producing a ton of heat that just seemed to be magnified through the clouds), I shot both film and digital (D800) and processed with my own mix of “actions” that I created for this session since I wanted a slightly more editorial feel along with some other pre-made ones.
