ASPEN ENGAGEMENT SESSION | SAMANTHA & BEAU

ASPEN ENGAGEMENT SESSION | SAMANTHA & BEAU
Samantha grew up in Texas but enjoyed taking trips to Aspen Colorado when she was young. When Samantha and Beau booked me for their wedding at Pine Creek Cookhouse in September 2017, they knew they wanted to capture some of the places in Aspen that was special to her childhood. Samantha and Beau introduced me to Woody Creek, which is one of my new favorite places in A[...]

SOUTH DAHLIA LANE DENVER MID-CENTURY MODERN MEETS LE DEJEUNER SUR L'ERBE
When I first met Jessie of Tangerine Room Events, we were both saying we wanted to a work on collaborative wedding shoot together that was very different. We were both inspired by art history and wanted to put in a Denver setting. Jessie told me of her interior designer mother's house and private neighbourhood state in the famous mid-century modern setting of Sout[...]

10 DAY HONEYMOON TOUR IN IRELAND | SNIPPET & INK
Do you know anyone who will be traveling to Ireland?

This tour can be extended to 2 weeks to include more of Ireland. Ideally, take 3-4 weeks in Ireland as there is so much to see and do! Enjoy! http://snippetandink.com[...]

FILM LIGHT LEAK | BRIDE | FILM WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

FILM LIGHT LEAK | BRIDE | FILM WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
My favourite happy accident of 2015...an unintentional light leak when shooting with film. This is one of the reasons that I love film photography. By not looking at a digital camera's LCD screen, I can experiment and create artful "random" photographs. I usually use a couple of frames of film negative to experiment like this at a wedding. The result is always sur[...]

PERFECTION IN IMPERFECTION | CAPTURING THE MOMENT | FINE ART WEDDINGS

PERFECTION IN IMPERFECTION | CAPTURING THE MOMENT | FINE ART WEDDINGS
I am busy editing the three weddings I shot last month in Europe. As I look at hundreds of images and decide which ones are the best to give to the couples, I have to stop to think about the idea of perfection. I feel that certain moments are better represented in imperfect photographs. These are the moments we can't predict. They are the ones that just happen and[...]

We had lived in Ireland for 10 years and before that I was in Japan for 2 yea[...]

GARDEN OF THE GODS COLORADO SPRINGS | LANDSCAPES COLORADO | PENTAX 6x7 AND PORTRA 160
For my recent birthday weekend, we took a sightseeing trip to Colorado Springs to see the Garden of the Gods. In the background is the majestic Pike's Peak which inspired the song "America the Beautiful" and the Colorado Gold Rush slogan "Pike's Peak or Bust". The landscape is truly beautiful and inspiring! I'm glad I had a roll of Portra 160 and my Pentax 6x7[...]
