Wes has been a part of my extended family for many years now, and I’m very excited to now welcome Courtney as well. We had a very chilly morning engagement session at the Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs this last March. You can see those pictures here: Courtney and Wes Engagement. Their wedding day was an emotional day for me witnessing the love that was so evident between Courtney and Wes become something that they shared with us all through their marriage. There were many tears of happiness. I also welled up a time or two. Overall, though, it was a beautiful day that I’m delighted I was able to be a part of. I hope you enjoy these photographs.

This past weekend I spent the day with Anna, Rory, and their wonderful families. It was a beautiful day in Falcon, Colorado on a small beautiful property. I feel blessed to have been included. Here are some of my favorite images from their special day.
My friend Kevin was kind enough to pose for this series of photos. We used the Denver city lights as a background. I’ve very happy with the resulting shots.
I finished a series of photos advertising for Electric Goggles. Laci was kind enough to pose for me. Here is a set of 3 of the same images, however, two of them have been cross processed digitally. I’d love to hear your thoughts on which you prefer and why.
I’m really excited to be shooting the photographs for Courtney and Wes at their wedding this summer. Their wedding will be held at the historic Broadmoor Hotel near Colorado Springs, Colorado. We recently shot Courtney and Wes’s engagement photographs at the hotel. The couple was wonderful to work with that morning as it was a crisp March morning, and it was more than a little cold. I’m thrilled with the photographs, and I’m ever more excited about the wedding.
This series of images is one I dreamed up for my Advertising Campaign class for Electric Visual Snow Goggles. I created the fake snow myself with advice from as many local professionals as I could find. I’m happy with the end result, and it was a lot of fun to experiment with different materials.
The first three photographs were my first take at the project. I used potato flakes and hair spray to create a snowy look. I like the effect, and I like the photographs themselves. I haven’t edited them as they were just a rough cut for the final shoot.
The project was to have a sense of humor about what being covered in ice and snow does to how a man looks, so it was important for me to push the makeup further to accomplish the humor in the ad campaign. I ended up using Karo syrup, fake snow in two different types, wax, hot glue, hair spray, and sugar to create this final look. I am really happy with the final results. I’m excited about putting more shoots like this together because I had a ton of fun putting all these pieces together.
