Moments, Want to remember how you felt coming down the isle

Monday, October 25, 2010 Posted in wedding photographers

Kind of a sneak peak. More than that though is the feeling I get when looking at this photograph. Seeing how happy Amanda was coming down the isle and how proud her father was. It gives us great pleasure to capture these important moments in a medium people can look back at. These kinds of images are important and take you right back to your wedding day, and us for that matter.

Amanda’s wedding was in Colorado Springs at Garden of the Gods Club, and more is coming soon.

Wedding Vows, Red Rocks, Chris & Mindi

Friday, October 22, 2010 Posted in Colorado Wedding Photographer

Chris & Mindi were married on one of those crazy Colorado weather days, with a thunderstorm, a tornado and then of course beautiful sunlight.  It truly was one day where you really didn’t know what was going to happen!  The day started with Andy & Chris dodging the weather outside and Mindi and I watching the downpour from her hotel window.  They were both in such great spirits they didn’t let the weather bother them even though they were having an outdoor ceremony with no alternative.  At one point the hotel’s power even went out, a car lit on fire in the parking lot and all of  the local firemen showed up!

In true Colorado style the weather did change, the sun came out and they had a beautiful. emotional wedding ceremony at the Red Rocks Trading Post.  Mindi wore a long,  lacy gown with an elegant veil and their whole wedding was adorned with red roses.

After some time taking pictures amongst the beautiful red rocks we headed to their reception back at the hotel where they shared a very sweet first dance and pieces of the soccer themed groom’s cake.  Chris & Mindi love photos and so they gave us one more opportunity to play with them before we left that night outside!  We were so lucky to a part of their wedding watch their love story grow!  Here are a few pictures from their day that we love!

You can see more images from this Red Rocks wedding here.

Teaching High School Photography

Wednesday, October 20, 2010 Posted in Wedding Photography Workshops

Angie and I were invited last week to teach a few High School classes as guest speakers.  It was a ton of fun for angie, who as I have shared before, is a few classes short on her second bachelors degree of being a teacher.  It’s nice for her to be able to combine two of her loves (photography+teaching).  I was a bit jealous of their fabulous teacher who has a fine art photography degree and the facility they get to use.  They have 12 enlargers, a large darkroom, and a ton of room (3 rooms all together) with everything you could think of.  I would have to say this room may be better than what many college students learn in.  Pretty cool for these students to have an opportunity like that.  I really hope  the Colorado community continues to support classes like this.  I have seen a move over the years for schools to only care about the basics, math and english.  I believe they are important but I also think music, art, photography have a huge part to play in helping sculpt the future of these students.  Of course I do, right I am a photographer?  I have a B.S from Colorado State for computer information systems and it was unfortunate I didn’t have opportunities like this or didn’t take advantage of them until later in life.

We talked about the Collodion Wet Plate Process and then about portraits to help them with an upcoming assignment. It was so great to see their eyes light up when they looked through the large format camera and see the image on the ground glass of the camera.  Most had never seen a camera like this.

Interesting note:  Not one male photography student in the entire program?  Not sure the reasons, but it’s interesting. Thinking to myself whats wrong with these guys?  Two of my favorite things in highschool would have been photography and girls and they seem to both be in this class.  Sign me up, should the response.
