Downtown Denver Wedding – Bailey & Doug

Kevin Taylor's at the Opera House

When it comes to wedding photography (or any artistic endeavor, for that matter) it’s always great to find new ways to stoke the creative fire and see different points of view. We don’t often second shoot for other photographers and we rarely shoot urban weddings. Bailey & Doug’s nuptials in Downtown Denver this past summer offered the opportunity to do both. My friend Robinson Usagani invited me to join him for this wedding, and the Downtown Denver location was a very nice bonus.

I started the day with Doug and the guys at The Curtis Hotel. After everyone was buttoned, tied, and pinned we hit the city streets around the hotel and Denver Arts Complex for creative portraits. Denver Comic Con was in full swing so you may spot an interesting character or two in some of the photos. Next up was an elegant ceremony and reception at beautiful Kevin Taylor’s at the Opera House. We even had ample time for portraits before the reception.

Thanks again to Robinson for having me tag along, and please visit his blog to see a bunch more photos from this fun wedding.

Club At Flying Horse Wedding – Stacy & Evan

Colorado Springs Wedding Photographers

After a snowy cold snap earlier in the month, November ended with gorgeous weather just in time for Stacy & Evan’s wedding. Family and friends traveled from far and wide to Colorado Springs and were treated to an unforgettable experience. Everyone (including us) was also treated to the beauty of the U.S. Air Force Academy and The Club at Flying Horse. This was a wedding that came together perfectly with a heart-felt ceremony and rockin’ reception.

The ladies started the day at Luna Hair Studio & Spa and the guys were stationed at a private home. The ceremony was held at the Academy’s Cadet Chapel, a truly one of a kind place (and a must-see when visiting Colorado Springs). Stacy & Evan allowed for plenty of time for portraits after the ceremony and we’re in love with the results. The reception was held at The Club at Flying Horse where the setting, food, ambiance and service are second to none.

There was a ton of awesomeness and it would be easy to go on and on, but since we’re photographers we’ll let the photos do the talking. Thanks again, Stacy & Evan, and congratulations and best wishes on your future together!

Next up on the blog is our recent session capturing professional portraits for Brittany Baker. Professional portraits are more than just head shots. They reflect who you are and can help land your next job or big client, so having something more than an iPhone snapshot will contribute to your success. Brittany is the morning traffic reporter and news editor for Fox 21 News. She chose a mix of inside and outside shots at the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center for her professional portraits. If you’re looking for on camera, voice over, or promotional talent, we highly recommend Brittany. Also be sure to tune in to Brittany’s reports each weekday morning before heading out the door for your commute.
