Wedding at Four Seasons Punta Mita, Mexico | Reagan and Chris

N
ot a lot of wedding happen this time of year here in Colorado. It can be cold, gray, yucky...
So when Reagan and Chris asked me to be a part of their December 19th wedding at the Four Seasons Punta Mita, Mexico, I was thrilled!
Warm, colorful, beautiful...

Epic.

After a couple days of lounging around at the Four Seasons, it was finally time for the wedding day.

With the ceremony to be held at sunset, Reagan and Chris made the wise decision of doing a 'First Look' before the ceremony so we'd have plenty of time for photos before we ran out of light.

How amazing is this moment? Chris seeing his bride, Reagan, for the first time here on these Mexico shores.

The band that played was out of this world. Most, if not all of them, are members of P-Funk. They do other gigs under a different name (which escapes me at the moment) - and man, can they play! Rumor was the vocalist was a former member of the Temptations. What a sweet, sweet voice!

Bridalize Denver

A
couple of years ago I had the great fortune to meet Jessica and Jeremy for the very first time. They were planning their wedding and looking for a photographer and so, over a hot Starbucks Latte, we discussed their wedding day, what they had in mind, and what they were looking for from their photographer. Happily, they hired me!

We met up again in June of last year for their Denver engagement session - and the photos we captured that evening are still some of my favorite engagement photos I've taken.

Then in August of last year I photographed their wonderful Colorado Wedding.

In the midst of all the planning for her wedding day, an idea popped into Jessica's head...

"Wouldn't it be great if there was a resource for Brides in the Denver area where they could go and find information and vendors all in one place?"

And from that idea, Bridalize Denver was born. From their site:

A bride's dream come true...
Visit this unique planning boutique where you can research an exclusive collection of Colorado’s top wedding vendors. Every premier vendor you’ll meet through BRIDALIZE has been prescreened and personally invited to be a member of our store.

At Bridalize, you can enjoy planning your wedding in comfort, convenience and confidence knowing our chosen vendors are the best in the industry. We are truly a one-stop-shop for the wedding of your dreams, and best of all it is a complimentary service to you.

See the latest trends, explore the freshest ideas, and cherish this incredible time in your life.


What sounds great in words is even more amazing in execution. TODAY Bridalize Denver opens in Greenwood Village, and you must see it for yourself. What they are bringing to the Denver area is an incredible resource we've never had here in the area until now. And they're doing it with beautiful style, and friendly smiles.

I recently met up with Jessica again, as well as her business partner, Shauna, for a few photographs of the dynamic duo. Together these women are bringing Denver Bride's what they've always wanted - a place to plan the perfect day.

While meeting with them I also had the chance to meet Jessica and Jeremy's baby girl!

Congrats Jessica, Jeremy, and Shauna on your new venture. And on behalf of, well, everyone having anything to do with creating weddings or getting married, THANK YOU!

If you have any time to spare this Holiday season, give them a visit at The Village Shops at The Landmark, 5370 Greenwood Plaza Blvd, Greenwood Village.

Wedding at Pinehurst Country Club | Jennifer and Scott

T
his last weekend I had the wonderful privilege of photographing Jennifer and Scott's winter wedding at Pinehurst Country Club. The ceremony was at a historic chapel not too far away where Jennifer's grandparents had recently renewed their vows after 60 years of marriage.

Normally I would give a brief synopsis of the wedding day and narrate the photos just a bit. But Jennifer and Scott's wedding can be summed up with just one word. And I'll leave you to discover that word for yourself.

My Daughter - Kaa the Snake

S
ometimes I'm a Denver Wedding Photographer and sometimes I'm just another proud parent with a camera...

Last week, after months of rehearsals, my daughter Rose, along with a large group of classmates, put on a performance of Disney's 'The Jungle Book'. The show was fantastic! Of course there were the chuckles from the audience that you might expect to hear at a performance put on by Kindergartners through 3rd Graders, but what was so impressive to me was the high quality of this production. They worked so hard and it certainly paid off.

I've done quite a bit of theater in my life and oh, how rewarding it was/is to see my daughter take the stage! She was Kaa the Snake and she had her part down pat. But after attending all of those rehearsals (and my daughter being who she is) I think she probably had everyone's part down pat!

Here's my girl...

And while I was sitting there the thought occurred to me that I might as well try to get a few good shots of some of the other actors since this was their only performance and I was probably the only pro with his camera (and a good seat) in the room.

Wedding at Grant Humphreys Mansion | Adrienne and Ryan

I
had never previously been to Grant Humphrey's Mansion, but this past weekend I had the great privilege to photograph the Denver Wedding of Adrienne and Ryan at this historic site. I love the classic architecture and the little details all throughout this Denver landmark.

Here's Adrienne just before donning the dress.

It was so great to see this Bridesmaid reappear at the reception! I've heard of it happening, but had never seen it before... She passed out during the ceremony and it was pretty scary. Fortunately she was ok and returned later in the evening with a big smile - and 14 stitches.
