Caity + Drew: Denver Wedding Photographer

There are some people you meet and you instantly know you’re going to like them. When we were first approached by Caity via email we set up a time to meet with her mom, Ann, since Caity was out of state finishing school. We knew from the moment we met Ann that if Caity was anything like her mom and anything like the way Ann described her that we were going to enjoy working with them. Not only did we have so much fun with the two of them for their engagement session but when the wedding day arrived we couldn’t have been surrounded by a better group of family and friends. There is something about Caity & Drew that reminds Michelle and I of us when we got married. Perhaps it’s that they are young like we were or maybe just how you can see how much they love one another just by the way they look at each other with knowing glances. It definitely made me remember back to our own wedding day watching these two get married especially when the limo broke down at the guys’ place before the wedding (it was HOT out and it overheated)- something that also happened on our wedding day and has yet to happen until this wedding. Fortunately, their limo company was right on top of it and got everyone to the church long before the wedding without a hitch and Caity & Drew are such an easy going couple that they didn’t let it bother them in the least. They were married at Queen of Peace Catholic Church in Aurora and then held their reception at the Ritchie Center at the University of Denver. During the reception they set up a fog machine for their first dance and I LOVE the photos we got from it- totally recommend that by the way ๐Ÿ˜‰ We have a ton of amazing pictures but here are just a few from their story. Thank you Caity & Drew for allowing us to capture such an important day in your lives- God Bless!!

Caity + Drew: Denver Engagement Portraits

This year has been one of the most exciting years for us! We’ve had some amazing opportunities and have met some of the most wonderful people. Caity and Drew are one of our awesome couples getting married this year. They are getting married in just a little over a month and we are so thrilled to be working with them. Talk about crazy amounts of chemistry!!! It’s obvious to see how these two just “get” one another and how much they are in love. They are just so darn cute! ย We had a blast with them downtown a little over a week ago. We met at the Millennium bridge, worked our way through Commons Park and then up to Platte Street to the lower Highlands area (one of my absolute favorite locations to photograph). We had a lot of fun and were glad the weather held after all the crazy rain we’d been getting. Caity is actually an aspiring photographer herself- it’s always a privilege to work with other “artsy” folks who love photography. We can’t wait for your wedding next month guys. Here’s just a few of my favorite images from our shoot- enjoy!

Traci + Jeff: Colorado Fall Wedding

The 2010 wedding season started off great and couldn’t have had a better ending! Traci & Jeff’s fall wedding was a perfect way to end our year. Although it was a bit windy, the weather was gorgeous for the middle of October. They held their ceremony at Queen of Peace Catholic Church in Aurora. Michelle actually lived just up the street from the church when she was a kid so it was cool to get to photograph there all these years later. It is such a beautiful church and it’s so rare that you get that kind of beautiful light for photos inside a church! Following the ceremony we headed to the Courtyard in Cherry Creek where the views from the ballroom on the top floor are just amazing! We could even see the wildfires burning out near Chatfield that day. We had so much fun at this wedding- even got to dance to Michelle and I’s song during the reception- something we haven’t done in quite a while. Traci & Jeff are such genuine nice people and we were amazed at how kind their family & friends were as well. It’s people like them that make our job such a joy! Thank you guys for allowing us to photograph this important day in your lives. We also want to say a big thank you to Christina & Ryan, whose wedding we photographed back on 07/07/07, for sending Traci & Jeff our way- thanks guys!
