My first blog post of the new year had to be this beautiful at-home family session from a couple months ago because, well, I think you will understand why when you look through these images! My goodness! This was a fun one!
Molly booked a photo session with me as gift for her husband for Father’s Day… in June. Fast forward through a few scheduling changes, we were all pretty excited to finally be taking photos at their Glassell Park home in November. And, it was so worth the wait!
As soon as I walked through the door of their light-filled home, I knew it was going to be all good. There was great music flowing, bare feet, family dance parties and an all around good vibe. And, yes, we did do much of the photo shoot on or around mom and dad’s bed, but can you blame me? All that light and their natural talent for snuggling up, made it a must. The snuggle was real!
Photographing Alex and Parker’s wedding in Telluride, CO was one of funnest parts of my entire year so I’m thrilled to have it featured today on Grey Likes Weddings! Everything about it was stunning especially the destination! I have been to some incredibly beautiful parts of the world but Telluride was like nothing else I’ve seen. Someone described it as being inside a snow globe and it’s so true! I can totally understand why Alex and Parker chose it as the setting for their wedding. Check out GLW’s post here for all the beautiful details!

I had the great pleasure of photographing Astrid and Randy’s wedding at the historic Union Hotel in Los Alamos, CA in early October and I really want to share the photos here on the blog. Before I do, I thought I better first share our equally awesome, cinema-inspired engagement session. They wanted their photos to be a little different from most engagement sessions and suggested doing something with a vintage feel to tie in the Old West vibes of their wedding venue. I’m all for stretching my creative muscles!
We chose Paramount Ranch as our location and got there early enough in the morning that we were practically the only ones there, which was great. It was such a perfect spot for the concept we were going for and Randy and Astrid’s wardrobe and vintage suitcase worked so nicely. As I was shooting, I couldn’t help but be inspired by some of my favorite classic movies… a little “Hud” mixed with “The Last Picture Show” and a hint of “The Misfits.” In the end, I think we succeeded in balancing my candid, relaxed shooting style with something a little unique and creative. And, I really love the result which, hopefully, will go down as a timeless classic!
