I am just back from Wes and Lauri Lea’s wedding and It’s official. Yes, that was the last wedding of 2009. What a great way to end a great year. It was really nice to capture their wedding ceremony at The Chapel at Red Rocks. Red Rocks is magical in the winter with snow on the rocks and the clear cold days make the rocks seem even larger and vibrant than normal. We then went to The Golden Hotel for the reception, thanks to Melissa for all the hospitality. The Golden Hotel is a gem nestled on the banks of Clear Creek in downtown Golden. The nice thing about a morning wedding ceremony is after the ceremony we still have some of the best natural light of the day to use and not another commitment. We went to Lodo in Denver to capture some fun images of Wes and Lauri Lea alone. We covered a lot of ground even though it was getting really cold (mid 20s). As the last wedding of 2009 I can’t ask for a better year or better clients. Much thanks to Wes and Lauri Lea for allowing us to capture their amazing wedding day in Colorado and engagement in Memphis, TN.
We wish you the best!
The view from The Chapel at Red Rocks. I love how the rocks give depth and dimension to the is image.
Rings.... Thanks Heater! It is hard to make a creative ring portrait. I feel good about this one. Something different!
This is a fun spot that Wes and Lauri requested specifically. I put a different spin on it this time. This feels more like Brooklyn than Denver to me. Love it!
Another spin... I am really liking this one also!
December brides are TUFF, It is COLD! This image feels cold but documents what the day is really like.
What is a trip to Lodo without a Union Station portrait?
Depth, color and emotion. Did I mention December brides are TUFF.... I am in a down jacket, hat and gloves.
Inside the amazing Union Station. Best benches in Colorado.
I always try to always push myself creatively at every wedding. This is an image I created for myself just to push onward. I hope you like it as well.
