Travis + Kelly {Ault Esession}

About a week ago, I had the chance of photographing the engagement session for Travis and Kelly. Since the beginning, Kelly told me what kind of setting she wanted for her photo session with her sweetheart. And when she suggested a grassland area in Ault, CO - I was really happy to oblige. I just love it whenever my clients come up with ideas of their own and get creative for the photo session, because really, your photos should represent who you are as a person (or a couple) and your personality.

And before we hit the grassland, I spotted some cool spots in the area so I requested a few shots....

Charlie + Lisa {Estes Park Wedding 05.28.2010}

It was a sunny Colorado day when Joe and I drove up to Estes Park...and the mountains looked so beautiful that morning. I was really looking forward to shoot Charlie and Lisa's wedding. Lisa and I connected a few times before her wedding - learning more about her relationship and hearing her wedding planning made me so excited to photograph her special day.

Friends and family flew from all over the country (mostly from the East Coast) to be with them that day and witness this beautiful couple exchanging "I do's" at the gorgeous Della Terra Mountain Chateau. It was a whole day packed with lots of laughter, emotions, fun and celebration - a beautiful day, truly.

Charlie is a foreman at Harley Davidson's in Greeley, CO so it explains why they had a motorcycle ride as they exited their ceremony as husband and wife. Fun!!
