Alison found me through a make-up artist in Ireland that I have worked with, the fabulous Kathryn O'Neill (who just worked her magic on some of the Gucci models during Paris Fashion Week!). I photographed this wedding when I was in Ireland last summer visiting my family. In true Irish fashion, it was a rainy day...but that's what 7 years of photographing weddings in I[...]
I met Ashley and Tyler last year when they had to rearrange their wedding plans after their booked venue was suddenly shut down. Isabelle Kline Designs did a fantastic job helping them to plan a new wedding at the beautiful historic venue Cherokee Castle and Ranch in Sedalia Colorado. Ashley created some beautiful calligraphy for her wedding through her company As[...]
One of the most memorable weddings I had in 2015 was Christina and Kai's wedding at The Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs. Christina is originally from Indonesia and moved to Colorado in her late teens. She met Kai, who is from Singapore, at college in Boulder. Christina and Kai had a wedding celebration in Singapore in the summer, and then had their Colorado w[...]
Thank you to Kyle and Krissy who had me photograph their wedding at Chief Hosa in Golden, Colorado recently! Keegan of Steele The Spotlight did Krissy's perfect makeup look, and a friend of Krissy's created her florals. We had lots of time for fabulous portraits including a First Look at Lookout Mountain in Golden. Kyle and Krissy left their dinner at sunset for a[...]
Fuji 400H with a Mamiya 645 Afd (medium format) Shooting with a certain type of film stock is a conscious choice that the photographer makes. How do I want the colors to look? Do I want the palette to be pastel or more bright and punchy? Digital photographers decide this in post-processing when they edit the files that they took with their digital camera. But[...]
A little ode of admiration for Lale Florals, a unique and creative floral designer in Denver Colorado. More from this shoot inspired by the Gilded Age paintings of artist John Singer Sargent will be on Burnett's Boards in Aprilâ€¦with Prema, Bluebird Productions, Anna Be Bridal, Pretty Bride Shop, and Chloe Paige Beauty hair.
Kyle and Krissy wanted an engagement session that reflected the playful and fun relationship that they have together. They love the mountains and so I suggested that we use the setting of Rocky Mountain National Park for their engagement session. They brought along their puppy Jillybean for some fun shots, and then Krissy changed into the most perfect green Badgle[...]

As Valentine's Day approaches, I'd love to reblog a wedding I photographed with fantastic heart decorations. This wedding was in Doolin County Clare in the summer, but I think the heart decorations would be perfect for a February wedding! The bride is an American actress and the groom is a published poet from Ireland. They met in Viennaâ€¦ so romantic! Their wed[...]
I'll be starting a weekly blog post on Fridays highlighting a photograph or two from the archives. These might be photographs that might not have made it into galleries or features. Or they could be photographs that are special to me and I want to dedicate a special post to. For this last day in January, I am showing two photographs of the gorgeous Irish model[...]
