Dillon Reservoir/Loveland Pass Couples Session -

Ok, this session, Literally everything fell into place for. (Yes I just ended that sentence with a preposition, but it’s my blog so I do what I want). Ok, Anyway these two and this session was perfect. (Were perfect?). Geeze. Well, anyway I was rolling back through the Breckenridge/Dillon area after shooting a wedding the day before in Vail and I met up with these two for a quick adventure session. We met up by Dillon reservoir and hiked in for the first part of the shoot.

After shooting at the reservoir we headed up to Loveland Pass for some rad mountain view photos. There was a storm moving in so we had to move fast, but it made for some epic photos.

Denver Couples Session - Pumpkin Carving - Amanda + Jason.

Amanda&Jason - Denver Pumpkin Carving (32 of 52).jpg

One of my goals as a photographer is to do more unique couples sessions. About a year ago I did an in home session with some friends and we shot a food fight. It was so much fun. So I wanted to do more sessions that are fun and unique. 

So I posted on my Instagram story that I wanted to shoot a pumpkin carving session for the Halloween season. Of course, now that I am blogging this, Halloween is gone and past, and minds are thinking about shoving breadcrumbs in a dead bird. But, I wanted to share this anyway. 

Amanda started following me on Instagram after talking to one of my future brides. She responded to my Instagram story and we got this shindig set up. She was excited as this was the first time that her and Jason had gotten pictures done since they had gotten hitched. So I headed to their apartment in Downtown Denver and documented the fun. 

As with any session I wanted to take them out and go some other fun photos. Their apartment complex had a nifty little courtyard that we were able to take some fun photos in. 

Thanks you two for inviting me into your house and letting me be a part of your lives for a day! 

DENVER RINO DISTRICT - ENGAGEMENT SESSION - AARON & TAYLOR

This session was so awesome. I have always wanted to shoot in the RINO district here in Denver and I finally had the opportunity to do so. 

It has been a little bit since I have blogged, or really been on social media for that matter. I felt like I needed a mental health break for my own good, and guess what. The world did not fall apart while I was away. But during this time I had a super fun time shooting with Aaron and Taylor in the River North District of Denver here in Colorado. These two just got engaged, and when I put out a call on my Instagram that I was looking to do a shoot with a couple that had visible tattoos, they responded. 

Aaron is the Shop Manager at Dedication Tattoo in Denver, and Taylor is a hair stylist. when these two showed up they mentioned that they are super awkward in photos. I can't tell you how many times that I have heard this and the couples are not at all awkward. Aaron and Taylor completely killed it during this session. 

I had realized that while I have a good number of tattoos, that my portfolio was quite lacking in couples and people with ink. So I would like to remedy that, if you or someone you know would like to book a couples session, or even an individual session, and you have a good amount of visible tattoos, hit me up. I am offering half price tattooed couples sessions through 2017. 

Intimate Couples Session - Standley Lake Colorado

I recently relocated back to Colorado since moving back there are a lot of places that I knew that I wanted to shoot at. Rocky Mountain National Park, Red Rocks, Downtown Denver at night, and one that I had the opportunity to shoot at last week. Standley Lake in Arvada. 

I met Stephanie through Instagram. I ran a short giveaway and she entered and much to her excitement she won. Unbeknownst to me we both have a common thread in our past. We are both graduates of UNC (The University of Northern Colorado). 

Stephanie is a dietitian here in the Denver metro area. You can find her website here coloradodietitian.com or on Instagram here

Her husband Casey works in the oil industry here in Northern Colorado. They are both extremely fit people and this led to them meeting at the same gym while Stephanie was at UNC. She mentioned while we were shooting that she grew up in Orange County and moved out here and married a country boy and now owns chickens. Oh how love will change us. 

I seem to always get these couples that tell me that they are going to be awkward and look weird in their photos. But as you can tell, these two were making that up. I think that they wanted to try and give me a challenge. But when you have two people who looks this good and have such great chemistry with each other, they make my job easy. 

They also gave me the opportunity to work on my video skills. I have started including these short Instagram videos with my couples and my engagement shoots. Something that is unique, short and fun. Check their out here!
