Lindsey and I (Katie) had such a blast a few weeks ago getting to meet up with Brit and Jash for their engagement session in Denver! We had asked them about spots that might be special to them and they mentioned the RiNo arts district near downtown Denver. Lindsey and I may just have a new fav spot for shooting now, we absolutely loved it! It’s full of incredible colorful murals, and is a little funkier than the typical downtown Denver shots we often capture. We could have spent hours shooting in the amazing neighborhood, not to mention that Brit and Jash are seriously some of the sweetest and most photogenic people we know.

Brit and Jash, Lindsey and I are already excited about your wedding in a few months and LOVED getting to hang out with you! Plus, thanks for the introduction to that spot with THE best margaritas and rattlesnake (of course!):)

Here are a few sessions from the shoot!

For the last eleven years, we’ve stuck to using our personal Facebook pages to share photography work and connect with some of our clients. However, we’ve recently moved over to an actual business page on Facebook and would love for you to come find us online!

We made this change so that we could connect with more future and past clients and so that Chris, Lindsey and I could all share more of the day-to-day happenings in our business. We hope you’ll Like our page so you can stay updated on our latest shoots, wedding planning tips, secrets for planning smooth family sessions, and other fun little tidbits!

These days, we have clients calling us often with the great news that they’re expecting a new baby. Since having our own kids, we have a special love love for doing these baby sessions and the incredibly sweet (and crazy!) moments of parents with their new babies.

Lindsey in particular is doing lots of family sessions right now and we thought it would be fun to showcase a few favorites of her work!

With wedding season kicking into full swing in just a matter of weeks, we’re working closely with our clients right now on their wedding day logistics. One of the questions we get asked often early on in the planning process, is whether they should have a First Look. We should say first that the biggest advice we have about this is that you have to do whatever makes you happy on your day. Throw out the “should’s” and instead just think about what you WANT to do. That advice goes for the First Look too.

So with that out of the way….here’s our two cents:)

While some couples feel strongly about not seeing each other before the ceremony, we are finding that these days, lots of couples are opting to have a First Look where they see each other before the wedding. Although every couple is different and ultimately YOU have to choose what’s right for your day, we love the tradition of the First Look.0016 copy 20017 copy 20018 copy

Doing a First Look gives you a special moment to connect with each other and take in the day. When you don’t have anyone else around you, you can enjoy a quiet few minutes to talk and take some deep breaths before the (happy and wonderful!) madness ensues for the day! When couples are on the fence about doing a first look, it’s often because they’re worried that doing a First Look will take away from the dramatic moment of the groom seeing his bride come down the aisle. After seeing so many couples do a First Look, we can say with certainty that it doesn’t take away from that moment and your groom will still be in awe as he watches you come down the aisle. Instead, the First Look just gives you an opportunity to have a private moment together first.0011 copy0012 copy

A First Look also creates the opportunity for pictures with the two of you without being rushed. Often, the photos from the First Look end up being some of the couple’s favorite pictures from the day! While we always end up with a lot of great pictures of the Bride and Groom alone together, these pictures from the First Look have a special emotion with them.

Madison and Chris are the type of people that make us pinch ourselves because we can’t believe we get the chance to work with couples that are seriously so awesome. They are fun, they are kind, they are in love, and they are of course a gorgeous couple! These two are such incredible people and we feel so lucky that we’ve gotten to know them and their families.

Chris and I photographed Madison and Chris’ wedding at Devil’s Thumb Ranch, one of our FAVORITE Colorado wedding venues, and the day couldn’t have been more perfect. Their winter wedding was indeed very cold but it was an incredibly special day and went off without a hitch, thanks to their great attitude braving the cold, and the help of their incredible wedding planner, Isabelle Kline. Isabelle did such a beautiful job coordinating all the details and making sure that Madison and Chris’ vision for the day was executed to perfection!

In addition to loving Madison and Chris, we also loved their incredibly kind families. We were so honored to receive these kind words from Madison’s mom –

“You two are extraordinary to say the least!!!!   Such talent. We sincerely appreciated everything you did and just want to give you a big “thank you.”

Here are just a few of our favorites from the day!
