Engagement in Colorado Springs – Erin & Josh

Colorado Springs Wedding Photographers

Next up on the blog is Erin & Josh’s awesome fall engagement in Colorado Springs. We have two brides named Erin for 2016, both couples know each other, and both brought along their dogs to the engagement sessions. Who knew? Anyhow, we started the day in the beautiful backyard of Erin’s home along with Archer and Ava, the stars of the first image below. After that we visited Rock Ledge Ranch, Garden of the Gods, and Downtown Colorado Springs. Our final stop was the best ice cream shop west of the Mississippi, Josh & John’s. Josh (the groom) and John (the photographer) were there, so free ice cream for everyone! Well, not really. Congratulations once again, Erin & Josh, and we’re looking forward to photographing your big day at Spruce Mountain Ranch next year!

Fall Wedding in Colorado Springs – Annemarie & Justin

Colorado Springs Wedding Photographers

This is the story of Annemarie & Justin and their fall wedding in Colorado Springs. It’s a story that’s perfectly told in the photographs you’ll see below. The weather was perfect, two families gathered in Southern Colorado, the leaves were changing to vibrant colors, and a bishop was there to celebrate the vows and exchange of rings.

Our story begins at amazing Garden of the Gods Club where the ladies were getting ready for the big day. The suite has one of the best views in the state. The wedding Mass was held at Corpus Christi Catholic Church with Bishop Michael Sheridan presiding. We returned to Garden of the Gods Club for portraits followed by a stop at the amazing Colorado Springs School, which fit Annemarie’s vintage theme perfectly.

And then there was the reception, a standing room only affair at Julie Penrose Hall. Good food and happy faces were in abundance here. Annemarie & Justin’s first dance as husband and wife started slow, as they often do, but they quickly put on their swing dancing shoes and amazed everyone in attendance. It was a great way to end our 2015 wedding season and we couldn’t be happier for these two.

Congratulations, Annemarie & Justin, we were honored to be a part of your perfect day!

Fall is a wonderful time of year for portrait sessions, and for good reason. Erin & Chad perfectly timed their engagement session and chose gorgeous Golden Colorado as a backdrop. We started off at Clear Creek History Park, and the area was so perfect we wound up spending most of the session along Clear Creek. Their dogs made an appearance, too, and were more than happy to pose for a few photos. We explored Downtown Golden for a while before returning to Clear Creek for sunset shots. Does Golden live up to its name? We sure think so! Congratulations, Erin & Chad, we’re certainly exited about capturing your big day next summer!

There are many things to consider when planning your senior pictures, but one of our favorites is selecting the perfect locations. Briana’s location choices included an amazing variety of old town buildings to scenic mountain vistas to edgy urban graffiti. With the benefit of a little fall color and a radiant smile, the result is a stunning set of high school senior portraits. Welcome to the Class of 2016, Briana, and best wishes for your senior year!

Downtown Denver Engagement – Amy & Rey

Denver Wedding Photographers

When someone says “Colorado” most people think of the Rocky Mountains, snow, and high altitude adventure. Just east of the mountains, though, lies an urban oasis in a state known for its natural beauty. When Amy & Rey suggested Downtown and City Park for their Denver engagement session, we said “yes please!” We really love how the urban landscape shows a decidedly different side of Colorful Colorado.

Our first stop was City Park. The trees were just beginning to show fall color, and the lake, boathouse, and city view made this a great location. Next we ventured downtown where we lucked out with an amazing twilight sky. The lights came on and revealed the nighttime side to the city which provided even more variety for this Denver engagement.

The locations were great, but the best part of the session was hanging out with Amy & Rey for a few hours. They brought a lot of excitement and ideas for photos, and you’ll see smiles and a wonderful connection between them throughout the photos below. Congratulations once again to these two, we’re thrilled to be part of their big day in May!
