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 www.herlifemagazine.com/denver 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!

Stacey + Tim: Wedding at the Hyatt Regency DTC

Fall is one of my favorite seasons to photograph- nothing can compare to the colors of this season. And it seems that other people must feel the same way since each year the fall seems to be more and more popular for weddings with this year being no exception. Our first wedding in October was held at the Hyatt Regency DTC with Stacey & Tim. Between the couple, the colors, the details, and the location their wedding is definitely up there on my list of all time favorites. We met Stacey & Tim through our friends Kristie & Matt– whose wedding we photographed last summer… or so we thought. Turns out we actually met Tim 2 years prior when he was a groomsmen for Erin & Donald’s wedding all the way back in July of 2007! A fact that neither Tim nor Michelle and I realized until their wedding day when we were pleasantly surprised by Erin & Donald’s attendance. Stacey & Tim have been such a pleasure to work with. While you may have seen pictures of a bride with her dog before, they are typically with the bride holding the end of a very long leash and the dog as far away from her dress as possible. Not Stacey 🙂 Her one request for her wedding day was to have a picture holding her dog Oscar.  Take one look at him and you’ll see why- he’s adorable (Note: no wedding dress was harmed in taking these photos). During the reception, Stacey & Tim’s DJ provided a spotlight for their toasts, first dance etc. If there is one thing you should do for your reception, this is it! I could have photographed with that light all night! This post could have gone on for miles but we finally narrowed down just a few of our favorites for now so enjoy!
