Artistic Colorado Wedding Photos


Gallery: Favorite Moments, details, places

I’ve had the honor of photographing weddings of all shapes and sizes all around the world. Intimate weddings with a few of your closest family and friends, large super-glamorous weddings, and everything in between. Some of my clients are completely skeptical of everything traditional, while others love incorporating religious, cultural, or familial customs into their weddings. But each and every one of them has had a few things in common: their love of family, their love for their new life partner, and their love of beauty. These loves drive them to create a day that is completely unique to them.

I hope you enjoy this collection of some of my favorite images and moments.

“I love you as certain dark things are to be loved,
in secret, between the shadow and the soul.”

— Pablo Neruda, 100 Love Sonnets

Why weddings?

Put simply, I believe in love.

Though I was always a skeptical, doubtful person, somehow love was immune to my questions. Its power was always undeniable to me: power to heal, inspire, improve.

A lifelong commitment to another person is one of the most brave, inspiring, courageous, and joyful events in a person’s life. It’s a beautiful and rare thing to celebrate such a choice with your closest friends and family all in one place.

There is nothing like a wedding.


Featured wedding: Kacey + Matt

Glamour, Great Danes, and a ceremony in the park. This Brown Palace celebration was elegant down to every last personal touch.

Featured Wedding: Hollin + Russell

Hollin married Russell in the same church where her grandparents were married in Kalymnos, Greece. Their intimate wedding was among the most beautiful I’ve ever seen.

“Every heart sings a song, incomplete, until another heart whispers back. Those who wish to sing always find a song. At the touch of a lover, everyone becomes a poet.”

— Plato
