Andy and Jessica// Colorado engagement session

Isn’t the internet a magical place?

Jessica and I have been Instagram friends for a while and although she lives in Denver, it was nice to be connected to a fellow photographer from a far away place. I was so glad to finally meet her in person when I was in Denver a while ago. She and Andy are so down to earth and were kind enough to give me a little tour of the city as we walked around and made some photos.

Sometimes all you need is a change of scenery and new friends to make some magic.

Leo and Priscila // wedding at the 94th Aero Squaldron

Leo and Priscila are two of the most warm-hearted people I’ve ever met. As soon as I arrived to Priscila’s parents’ home, I was received with hugs and smiles, the kind I’m sure that are reserved for special days. Their wedding day was filled with hugs and smiles, and even some happy tears appeared here and there. Oh, and the dancing! They sure know how to have a good time.

I’m so thankful Leo and Pri welcomed me like a friend and chose me to document their lovely wedding day.

Beca Companioni - MERARI! So. Good.

Demi and Cameron // Blaze your own trail workshop

I had the pleasure of attending the Blaze Your Own Trail workshop in Colorado a few weeks ago. I had such a wonderful time hanging out in the snowy mountains with folks who are passionate about photography and want to share their knowledge and experience. It’s refreshing to be a part of such a supportive community of fellow photographers who root for one another and build each other up.

The lovely Demi and handsome Cameron joined us one afternoon for a shoot. A beautiful couple snuggling in the snowy mountains? Yes, please.

Steven and Dana // wedding at the Raleigh Hotel

Steven and Dana are fun personified. We jumped on beds, shared stories about our mutual love of exploring new places and walked barefoot on the beach after everyone else had left.

I couldn’t find a single photo of Dana where she wasn’t smiling from ear to ear. It wasn’t that cheesy camera smile either, but the kind of smile that appears on the face of a woman who knows she is loved. And the way that Steven looks at her, well, the rest of us couldn’t help but smile along too.
