Welcome TO THE

I’m a sucker for a good story. Always have been. Especially a good love story. And the best love stories are the ones that lead to a lifetime of love together. Those stories always have a sense of nostalgia and timelessness. My grandparents tell me the story of how they would go to the movies […]

Arvada, CO Wedding

When I first met Lauren & Chris at Starbucks (because really, there will never be enough coffee in my life) three things were instantly obvious: 1. Lauren is one of those people that radiates happiness. You can just tell when you meet her – she is full of joy, life, and spirit. 2. Chris is head over […]

Colorado Engagement Photos

I love having close relationships with my couples and getting to know them. It always ends up feeling like we have known each other for years. And with Stephanie, I really have. When she first contacted me in 2012, her boyfriend hadn’t even proposed, but she worked for, and what started as a business […]

A new look, a new feel, and a more personal approach than ever. is more user-friendly and easier to navigate […]

The love that’s growing that you know, but at the same time, you can’t even imagine. Capturing Shauna’s pregnancy with her first baby was just wonderful – and we even beat out the rain! Congratulations to Shauna […]

The phone rang. She excused herself around the corner of a building in downtown Denver, then mid-conversation with her doctor, she emerged to look at me and shake her head.
