“Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.” -Roger Caras

I took a special trip to Denver on Tuesday afternoon to photograph two amazing pups, Lincoln and his 14-year-old counterpart, Joker. Joker’s eyes are a little fuzzy, his ears don’t hear like they used to, and his back legs have seen better days. But even at 14, his little smile and wagging tail overshadow his age. I can’t thank Laurie (with Rendition Studios) enough for inviting me to photograph her awesome dogs together.

Dan & Anne are two of the coolest & truest Colorado people I know. Instead of an engagement session, they wanted to head up Ute Pass Road just North of Silverthorne for a session as the sun rose! Gorgeous light, great location, sweet vintage car and the most adorable dog! I love this shoot!

Laura & Kaleb’s wedding in June at the Silverthorne Pavilion was a beautiful, sunny Colorado celebration. This stunning bride and her adorable groom made the most of this awesome Summit County venue and we had lots of time to play!

> Northern California Wedding

> Holly & Tony are two of the most adorable, genuine, kind-hearted people I have ever met. So when they asked if I’d be willing to possibly come out to California to shoot their wedding, there was zero hesitation on my end. “I mean, I guess I could do that….YES!” Their ceremony & reception took place under tall redwoods and twinkly stringed lights. California dreamy.

> Backyard Wedding in Dillon

These two did it right. A quick ceremony by the lake, followed by an awesome tented reception in their own backyard. More to come, but for now here’s a sneak peek at some of my absolute favorites from Saturday evening!
