Andy + Angie {Huntington Beach Photographer}

It was so much fun to have the fabulous Andy and Angie Wood come stay with Heath and I in California.  They are great friends of mine, are among the top photographers in the world and I had the privilege to have them photograph our wedding this March.  As you can imagine, it was a little intimidating for me to offer to photograph them during their visit.  In fact, right when I offered, I secretly hoped they wouldn’t take me up.  Needless to say, I had nothing to worry about. We took only about 30 minutes and walked out to the Huntington Beach Pier and got some beautiful images as a result.  I am so grateful to have such wonderful friends in my life like Andy and Angie and to live in such a beautiful part of California.

Much love to you two!

Katelin + Kayla {Denver High School Senior Photography}


It is always such a pleasure to photograph beautiful high school senior girls! Photographing Katelin and Kayla are no exception to the rule. These beautiful girls were so fun and sweet to meet and photograph while we walked around the Lakewood Heritage Center. Can you tell these girls are athletes or what?! Congratulations girls on starting your senior year.  Wheat Ridge High School Class of 2013!!  Woot Woot!

Katelin really wanted a “fierce” looking photo in black and white.  Here is what I got. I also love the one right after it too!

Last but not least, I had to post a picture of the girls with their precious Mamma! Joely, it was such a pleasure to work with you and your girls. You are all beautiful.

Tavis + Alex + Asaph + Baby {Manhattan Beach Maternity Photography}

Yesterday my cousin, Tavis, and his wife welcomed their next baby girl.  I am off to photograph pictures at the hospital, but wanted to post a couple of my favorite photos from their maternity photography session in Manhattan Beach. It was a super windy and cold day, but we made it work.  If you would like to view their slideshow, visit this link.

It is my goal as a photographer to capture the authentic moments with a family and the interactions that happen.  I am happy to say I think these images really show this family and my cousin’s love for his wife.

Welcome baby Hannah Joan! I can’t wait to meet you.

This is my favorite! Love the look on Asaph’s face.

Amelia + Aaron = Married {Denver Destination Wedding Photographer}

Amelia and Aaron tied the knot and their pictures have been uploaded to their client wedding website.  It is amazing and so fun to see Amelia grow into the woman she is and to be able to photograph her and her newborn son Wyatt throughout their journey and now her marriage to Aaron.  This wedding made me tear up as a wedding photographer to see them join as a family.  Aaron, you are an amazing man and I am so glad you found such a wonderful woman. Amelia, I love you.

Congratulations on your wedding! At their website you can find images from their engagement session in Central City, Colorado as well as their wedding that took place in Evans Chapel followed by the reception at The Brown Palace Hotel, Denver.


Craig + Anissa Sneak Peek {The Deck on Laguna Beach Wedding}


It was such a pleasure to have met Anissa and Craig so shortly after getting married and moving to California.  I was able to capture their gorgeous wedding this Saturday that was held at The Deck on Laguna Beach.

Craig surprised Anissa by having her dog, Paris, deliver the rings for the ceremony.  Anissa was speechless and moved to tears to have her dog be able to play a role in her wedding day (despite dog regulations for that beach).
