SCOTT & KYLE | LEADVILLE COLORADO ENGAGEMENT SESSION

I was really looking forward to Scott and Kyle's engagement session because I have never been to Leadville Colorado. Scott & Kyle were high school sweethearts and will be the tying the knot at Spruce Mountain Ranch in 2016. Kyle suggested we do their session at Twin Lakes near Leadville which is where her family has a cabin. I am so happy she suggested this location as it is not only beautiful, but personal as well! There is no better…

ROCKY MOUNTAIN BRIDE | KYLE & KRISSY’S COLORADO MOUNTAIN ENGAGEMENT SESSION

KAI & CHRISTINA | CHEROKEE CASTLE ENGAGEMENT SESSION

Kai & Christina's engagement session at Cherokee Ranch and Castle near Denver Colorado was amazing! I love the history and setting of this castle in Colorado, and it is a great location for weddings. Christina is originally from Jakarta Indonesia (a place I'd love to go to!) and wore a beautiful traditional Indonesian dress for part of the session. I is a modern twist of the kebaya dress, which is a traditional dress from Java. She met Kai who is…

Janine and Joshua's wedding website on squarespace with engagement photography by Lisa O'Dwyer, Fort Collins Colorado wedding photographer

WEDDING WEBSITE | SQUARESPACE

I photographed Janine and Josua's engagement session in Fort Collins in October. You can see more here. Janine just showed me the wedding website that she created using her engagement session photographs and I had to share. I just love it! Sometimes wedding websites can look very uninspiring…especially the template ones that link up to more famous wedding websites. Janine's website is very elegant and sophisticated which shows off their personal style and makes a great first impression for their…

ROME ITALY ENGAGEMENT SHOOT | ITALY DESTINATION WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

My love for Italy comes from my love for Art History. I studied abroad in Florence in college and I cried when I had to come back to Pennsylvania. I loved the grandeur and faded beauty of Italy, the live-life-to-the-fullest lifestyle, the beautiful fashion, the art every where you look, the history, the gelato!!!!…

REEDS, FENS, ST BRIGID | IRELAND FINE ART LANDSCAPES | LISA O’DWYER PHOTOGRAPHY

I loved the feeling of nature being vast and mysterious and overwhelming. As I studied art and history in school, I became interested in the history of places… particularly natural places.…
