Wessler Family at Wash Park

If you’ve been following my blog for any length of time this family is probably going to look a bit familiar. We’ve known the Wessler family for several years now and have photographed all three children’s weddings starting with Erin + John’s back in 2006, Stephanie + David’s back in 2007 and then Kari + Sterling’s back in 2009. Now they have three more to add to the family with the youngest addition just a couple months old! We even got the cutest photo of the three little ones together- Logan with his newborn sister Emma and little cousin Sophie. It’s so fun watching families grow over the years and especially this one. We had a great time that afternoon at Wash Park. After all this crazy weather we’ve been having it was nice to have a day without the rain and apparently a lot of other folks thought the same as the park was definitely packed that day. Here’s just a few of my favorite images from our shoot. And of course what would a Wessler family picture be without the one of the guys posing for the best photo ever! Thank you to the entire Wessler clan- it was so good seeing everybody!

Sneak Peek of a Few New Projects

This week has been crazy busy!! Lots of stuff to blog in the next few weeks but I’m a little too excited to wait to post all of them so here’s a sneak peek of a few things coming this next week on the blog. Check back later today or tomorrow for a fun family shoot from last weekend too!

Here’s one of my favorite shots from Caity + Drew’s engagement session downtown this week:

Awesome shoot downtown Littleton last night with Meghan for her band’s promotional ads:

And one from our shoot last month with Mrs Colorado 2011 for Her Life Magazine and Soignee Elegant Attire:

Denver Roller Dolls: May Cover Shoot for Her Life Magazine

Back in March we had the chance to meet and photograph Heather “Bijou” Angeli with the Denver Roller Dolls for the May cover of Her Life Magazine. Bijou is a member of Bruising Altitude and the Shotgun Betties. We had the chance to see her in action at a bout shortly after our photo shoot and can these girls kick butt! Not sure how long I’d last in the rink with this group of ladies. If you’re looking for a fun date night or family evening in the Denver area definitely check them out- we had a great time! As for our photo shoot, we figured what better location than somewhere urban like downtown Denver. A big thank you to Scarlet Salon who couldn’t have done a better job with Bijou’s hair & makeup- loved the purple! Bijou was an absolute pleasure to work with and was so easy going in front of the camera which made it a bit difficult to narrow down our favorite shots for the magazine. The issue will be up online at a few more days before the June issue is released so make sure to read her inspirational story. Having been diagnosed with MS just about a year ago, she doesn’t let it get in the way of life and uses skating as a platform to reach others touched by this disease. Thank you Bijou for the fun afternoon and hope to make it to another bout someday soon!

Trey: Denver Senior Pictures

The last time we saw Trey he was probably around 13 years old- hard to imagine he’s graduating high school now! I’ve worked with his dad for many years and actually photographed their wedding back in 2006- wow that was a loooooong time ago!! Downtown Denver is always a great location for senior portraits- so much variety with textures and colors with all the brick and cool architecture with the buildings. I always love shooting in alleys and while walking down one of the alleyways we walked by a delivery truck and just had to snap a quick pic of Trey in the back. I’m sure the delivery guys thought we were nuts! We had a great time shooting that afternoon with Trey and have way too many awesome shots to choose from. Senior pictures are probably one of my favorite things to photograph- so relaxed and just fun. If you need senior pics for the class of 2012 contact us to set up a session.
