The story of a girl named Charlotte……..
There is a girl with pretty red hair and freckles to match. You may not always know what she is thinking but it’s the greatest thing when you get her to laugh. She loves photography and has quite the eye. She doesn’t like fancy food; chicken nuggets and fries are her thing and if you bring her a Starbucks she will grin from ear to ear. She is always dressed all cute and matching but if you let her wear her Converse she will be happy all day. When we met this girl we knew we wanted her to work for us and so 2 years later she is still our favorite assistant.
Charlotte comes with us to almost all of our weddings. She sets up lights, she carries equipment, she changes batteries, sometimes she does a little photography for us and on occasion has been known to find us a drink or some food! She is there for the long drives, the rainy days and the amazing ones too. We are so thankful for our assistant, Charlotte, who by the way has done some great photography herself :)
We arrived early to our last wedding in the mountains (like an hour) so Charlotte became a model and we had a fun little shoot!
Most photographers will know who crash is. He is a talented photographer from the U.K who is also known for his interviews of photographers. We couldn’t be more happy to be interviewed with some of the greats of the industry from around the world. The interview was really fun it has a ton of photograph’s from us as well as questions that get down to the bottom of who we are:)

Andy & I have had some amazing opportunities the last few years in our photography career and we have discovered how much we love to teach! One of the things we find very important to ourselves and the growth of our business is constant learning. I’m a strong believer that you can learn from almost anyone anywhere if you are open to it. Through our passion to learn we discovered our passion to teach; to share some of the valuable things we have learned ourselves and how we have grown our business into what it is today. Starting at a local level we spent about 2 years teaching at a local community college here in Denver about photography and digital cameras. Last year we spoke at WPPI in Las Vegas and in the trade show there for WHCC (white house custom color). Because of these amazing experiences we have developed our own teaching style and have put together some awesome workshops.
So, we are announcing our first workshop here in Colorado! It will be 3 days, there will be several models and it will be somewhere you will never expect! We are so excited because this will be unlike any other workshop! Have I intruged you????? Well stay posted because details are coming soon!
We are so excited about the Colorado workshop but we also have some very exciting things planned for the other states! We have spoken to a few of you about a workshop in your city, but are open to anywhere! If you are interested in helping us with a workshop in your city send us an email and we’ll talk!!!!!
Andy & I work really hard together and love to share milestones and achievements with all of our friends, family and clients. Without any of these people we wouldn’t be where we are today and they continue to give us the support we need every year. I am so proud of Andy, this is an amazing achievement in his career:) Getting this from an organization that puts on the largest convention and trade show in the world for wedding photographers. We found out a few weeks ago Andy is going to receive two certifications from WPPI next year. Andy is the first photographer in the state of Colorado to receive these. Now onto making sure I am the first female in colorado
