Last fall I had a wonderful opportunity to work with Wedding Paper Divas to put together a styled photoshoot. Bonus was I would get to use their amazing paper products to help enhance the theme! I decided to photograph my dear friends and real life couple Brandon and Tyler. I wanted to do an engagement session and an engagement party and use vendors who I love and some whom I hadn't had the chance to work with yet. I chose one of Wedding Paper Diva's modern laser cut designs for...

Two days before Christmas I had the pleasure of photographing Jon and Susan in my hometown of Littleton, CO. Jon is a childhood friend of mine and when he asked if I would photograph his wedding I couldn’t have been more excited! Jon and Susan met while attending the Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland and I CAN’T WAIT for their wedding there this July!

I was thrilled when Jon mentioned he was going to be bringing Susan to Colorado for Christmas and decided to hop on a plane and fly to Denver to photograph their engagement session. We were given such a beautiful snowy day as our backdrop…a little cold…but so worth it! I have a friend who lives on a magical piece of property up Deer Creek Canyon and was incredibly thankful she allowed us to shoot up there. Jerry Lee her German Shepherd decided to join in on our fun, as well as a few looky-loo deer! Jon and Susan are such a great match…let’s just say I didn’t have to coach them on when to kiss and when to smile…they did lots of that all on their own.

I feel beyond lucky to call these two friends and I’m so humbled to document such a special time in their lives!

Here are a few of my favorites from their session and you can also check out their feature on Style Me Pretty here.

Fellow photographer Jamie Delaine and her husband Randy are the founders of The School Sessions: a one-day event across the globe on Sunday, April 12, 2015 to raise $200,000 to build a school in Haiti. They reached out to me asking if I'd like to be involved and of course I jumped at the chance! Jamie and Randy's belief that business needs to be about more than just making money, that we should use our platforms to give back and encourage others in our industry to do the same really...

Oh man, where do I even start! Precious Georgia Lynn was born October 24th to my dear friends Kara and Mark Burfeind. They had decided to wait to find out the sex of their child until the delivery day and we were all convinced she was going to have a boy. Instead the most perfect baby girl came into this world and I for one am completely and totally smitten! Two weeks after Georgia was born Kara asked if I would take just a few photos of her. She was...
