It was a scenic 3 hour drive south from Fort Collins through Colorado Springs and past Pikes Peak to get to beautiful Mueller State Park for Alison and Adam’s early September wedding. It was a small destination wedding, and the guests and couple filled up the park cabins that overlooked majestic Pikes Peak. The couple loves hiking and Alison has fond childhood memories of this park. They even requested that guests wear their finest hiking footwear for the event. The weather turned out perfectly and there were lots of locations to choose from for photos, including aspen groves, rocks, ponds and of course great views of the mountains.
This engagement photography session was taken at Spring Canyon Park in Fort Collins with the lovely Cindy and Chris. I get the pleasure of photographing their wedding very, very soon on a farm near Fort Collins. They had to move their wedding location from Estes Park due to the historic flooding that happened, but it will still be a great day (and sunny!).
It was great to get to know Elisabeth and Adam more before their wedding, which will take place in just a few short weeks just outside of Denver. They are both from Michigan, where they met, and now live in Denver. We did their engagement photography in the Fort Collins area at the CSU Oval and the foothills, and they quickly relaxed in front of the camera.
I also get to see them a week before their wedding at their friend’s wedding I’m photographing! I’m looking forward to the next few weeks of action…
Lauren & Justin are two of the most outdoorsy people I know, so having their wedding take place in the Estes Park area was perfect for them. Their love of hiking was apparent in their choice of footwear: Lauren her bedazzled hiking boots and Justin his comfy chacos. We started their wedding photography at beautiful Moraine Park in Rocky Mountain National Park. The wedding ceremony and reception were a laid-back affair at Hermit Park Open Space, and included cute pine cone girls and the Jewish tradition of breaking a glass. The weather held out all afternoon despite thunderstorms developing all around Estes Park. The happy couple are soon taking their adventure-moon to Durango and Telluride.

This Fort Collins, Colorado wedding took place at the beautiful Tapestry House. It was an intimate afternoon event in which Katie and Brian celebrated with close family and friends.
It was great to get back to Vancouver Island to photograph a wedding after an exciting trip to Europe seeing family. Alisha & Glen came over from Vancouver for their destination wedding at The Alders Beach Resort, about 3 hours north of Victoria BC. The resort has a laid-back, secluded feel which was a perfect venue for the couple. The two share a love for Scrabble, which was apparent in the reception details, which included place cards made by Alisha’s elementary school students. They even splurged by hiring military jets for a perfectly-timed fly-over after the signing! Oh, and not to mention the flash mob by the guests after the ceremony! I felt privileged to be their wedding photographer and to connect with them so well.
Miles and Chen visited Fort Collins for their couple photography session from the Denver area to Miles’ old stomping grounds and to where Chen went to school. We captured the story of their romance in spots that meant something personal to them – at CSU, around the Oval as well as the building where Chen spent so much time. With Spring finally here we captured lots of great colors. Then we went towards the foothills where Miles had spent many hours biking and were treated to some amazing light and views. The couple have an exciting trip planned for China together soon!

After the amazing wedding festivities at Waipouli Beach Resort, Erin and Lance decided to do a ‘day after’ session while exploring the North Shore of Kauai. There was no better way to cap off telling their love story than with the rugged, lush beauty that the area offered. We photographed along the way, including at popular snorkeling destination Tunnels Beach. The brooding clouds, sun and showers created some great mood and light for the photography.
It’s hard to describe how incredible it was to share in a wedding like this, with amazing locations and amazing friends. I’ve photographed in some exotic locales before given that I lived in Australia, but this might count as a true destination wedding, where about 85 guests traveled from around the world, mostly from Canada, but also a couple from Norway! The wedding ceremony and reception took place at beautiful Waipouli Beach Resort on the island of Kauai, Hawaii overlooking the ocean. It had lots of local Hawaiian flare, from the pineapples along the aisle, to exchanging leis, to a traditional blessing. I’ll let the images do most of the talking. Stay tuned for Part 2: the Day-After Session taken along the North Shore.
I was lucky enough to get back to one of my favorite places to photograph a warm, fun-loving couple. Felice and Colin tied the knot at Mount Washington Ski Resort, located on beautiful Vancouver Island, B.C. on a perfect summer’s day. I grew up skiing on this hill, about a 3 hour drive from Victoria, so getting on the chairlift to the top for the bridal party photos brought back some nostalgia (when I wasn’t snapping photos that is). The view from the top was perfect with the coastal mountains crystal clear. The wedding ceremony and reception took place at Raven Lodge with Mt. Albert Edward as the backdrop. Here is their story…
