Sarah and her mother came into the studio after getting her makeup and hair done at the oxford hotel spa downtown. These bridal sessions are such a great opportunity to try out your makeup and hair ahead of time. I think she looked fabulous. Angie and I wanted to create something elegant as well as modern. We chose a grey seamless look for this shoot and created some really nice imagery for her. This kind of a look is very popular in the bridal magazines. Sarah’s wedding is coming up in a few weeks at arrowhead golf course one of our favorite places to shoot. Sarah we cant wait to see you soon.
What an amazing experience Jeremy and Anne allowed us to be a part of. I just wanted to throw up a few for everyone to see. There will be many more to share soon. We got so many beautiful wedding images from this wedding we didn’t know what to do with ourselves. The weather was all over the place but cooperated for the important parts like the ceremony where it all of a sudden become beautiful and sunny and gave us amazing skies to work with.
Tae and Thy had very fun wedding at the Magnolia Hotel in downtown denver. The wedding was in the club room and the reception was across the street at the Ballroom which is one of the nicest spaces I have seen in colorado. They had some incredible flower arrangements. They had flowers on columns at each row. Huge arrangements up at the alter area and giant centerpieces on every table at the reception. It was truly beautiful. There guests had so much fun and got to take carriage rides in downtown denver curtsy of the bride and groom.
