Every wedding we spend our time trying to get those images that are going to be timeless and are priceless to our clients. The picture that shows the happy times with the people they love. I am reminded as we get older that it’s not the things we build up while we are here that are really worth anything. We can’t take them with us. The relationships are the important things. Whether it is a relationship between a mother and daughter or something else. This is what matters. I hope we do these moments justice.

Weather can sometimes be a problem on a wedding day. The nice thing about the weather in Colorado is that it doesn’t have to stay the same the whole day. It had been raining and snowing all day for this wedding. For the portraits before the wedding though we got 15 minutes of the most beautiful light. Warm, golden and beautiful. Since it is snowing again today, I wanted to share this image. Maybe it will warm you up.
Yesterday was Angie’ birthday and we took her out for lunch at one of her favorite places (the cheesecake factory) and to Mile High Photographers to hear a speaker (Jonathon Canlas) talk about film fine art wedding photography. It was refreshing to hear another experienced photographer talk about staying true to your vision as a photographer and artist. Our clients expect and want the way we see the world, not someone else. There are thousands of others photographers, what makes us different is how we think and see the world. The way each photographer sees the world is reflected in what cameras they shoot, how we process files and what we take pictures of.
I just had to post a few images from our new Fuji x100 that I got to shoot around with yesterday. I will be posting a lot more shots from this gorgeous camera in the weeks to come. It was a pleasure to use and the images files were gorgeous.
Clients look at us a like we are crazy sometimes. We talk about light as if it was drug that we needed. I heard someone, say when I was first starting out in photography. You are not really taking a picture of the people in the photograph you are taking a picture of the light on the subject. This may be a foreign concept for many clients, but without light you have no shape, texture, or color. Whats a picture without these things? Here is my bad sense of humor, everyone looks the same in the dark. Think of light as the wrapping paper around the subject. So next time we are rambling on about the light, you will better understand our obsession.
