Miss Colorado USA: Blair Griffith

Our time working with Her Life Magazine couldn’t have ended on a better note than our shoot for their November Cover. We had the opportunity to meet and photograph not only the very beautiful but also extremely sweet Miss Colorado USA Blair Griffith. Our photo shoot was a couple months before she relinquished her crown to the next year’s pageant winner and needless to say it was pretty cool to work with her. Blair was one of the sweetest people we’ve ever had the pleasure of working with! She’s just such a genuine person and her personality shines through her smile in every picture. We chose to meet up at Cherry Creek North for the photos. Unfortunately the weather was not really our friend that day but if it hadn’t been for the wind and rain we wouldn’t have found such a cool location indoors to take a few of the pics. We were photographing around the JW Marriott Cherry Creek when the weather turned on us and the awesome staff at Second Home Kitchen & Bar inside the hotel was kind enough to allow us to use their place for some really awesome pictures with a backdrop against a wall that changed colors. This shoot was definitely one of the highlights working with Her Life Magazine and while it was a bit sad to say goodbye to the magazine we felt the opportunity had run it’s course and we’re ready for other things. Blair thank you so much for your time and willingness to work with us!

Christen + Michael: Day 1 Erie Fashion Portraits

A couple of weeks ago Michelle and I had the chance to travel to Erie, Pennsylvania to spend a few days with her brother and sister-in-law. Neither of us had ever been really anywhere in that area of the country so that also made the trip pretty exciting for us. Michael & Christen flew us out to Buffalo where we got to see Niagara Falls on the other side of the border and then we headed to Erie for the next few days to spend some time relaxing and taking some photos for the two of them. It was a really fun trip and we had such an amazing time! So sad to come back home:-(We spent two days photographing in various locations in Erie. The first day we started out our shoot at The Crooked I– a local bar in downtown Erie, PA. The idea behind this shoot centered around a couple meeting in a bar. This whole shoot was photographed with two little portable flashes and a hand made snoot to direct the light using a brochure we found in the bar- pretty amazing what you can do without all the big equipment we normally use! For the second group of photos we got to utilize the loft area upstairs from the bar. The second and third floor was pretty much like shooting in an abandoned building- something we don’t have much of in Denver so it was great to get to use a space like that. These were more “romance novel” type images- something I think we accomplished well! The last section of photos we headed outside. The clouds started coming in and the temperature was dropping (as was the sun) but we found a couple of great locations to shoot before we were all too tired and hungry to go further. Loved the single pics we got of each of them outside the warehouse! Here’s some of my favorites from our first day with Christen & Michael. Stayed tuned for day 2 coming soon!!
