Todd photographed the first half of this session; I did the second.

Tori & Garrett

Tori grew up spending summers at a family cabin in Buena Vista, so for her and Garrett to have their engagement session there only made sense.

Twenty Thirteen

There were thunderstorms, sweltering heat waves, perfect summer mountain breezes, and blizzards.  I photographed lovely people in snowy mountain towns, Caribbean beaches, Kentucky horse farms, rutted dirt roads in the African countryside, Rustbelt cities, National forests, great historic mansions, the shores of the Great Lakes, art galleries and art museums, the Big Apple, the plains of the great Masai Mara, cowboy towns and Midwestern dairy farms.

Dawn & Jason

I knew from the first time I talked to Dawn that she and Jason were wonderful.  We talked before they had a date or a venue or anything else, but they were sincere and open and just completely delightful.

Colleen & Zack // Portraits

Instead of an engagement session, we did portraits in one of my favorite Southwestern towns almost exactly one year after Colleen and Zack were married.

Nadia & Josh // Rocky Mountain Engagement

I’ve known Nadia for a longtime (because Ridgebacks!), so shooting her and Josh’s engagement and 2014 wedding is a huge treat.

Jill & Aaron // Portraits

It’s like there’s a cardinal rule that if the first session gets rained out, the rain check will be twice as beautiful as you could have hoped for in the first place.

Mindy & Cameron // Portraits

Mindy and Cameron are crazy talented photographers themselves, and I’m guessing that had something to do with the fact that they were able to appreciate the magical secret garden quality of the abandoned greenhouse enough to brave the ticks and the broken glass and the poison ivy.

Claudia & Pierce // Portraits

Portraits of Claudia and Pierce, the evening and day after he proposed beachside in St. Thomas.

Claudia & Pierce // Proposal

Pierce did things the old fashioned way : he asked Claudia’s family for her hand in marriage and planned a proposal that she knew nothing about.  They hadn’t gone ring shopping, she wasn’t expecting a proposal at every turn (or any turn, for that matter).  Add to that the fact that he pulled the whole thing off on a secluded beach in the Caribbean.  It was stunningly beautiful, and Claudia was completely swept away.

Brandy & Micah // Engaged

I’ve been talking with Brandy and Micah since before they were officially engaged, and getting to spend time with them over the last several months has been such a cool part of the process.  I love these portraits of them, images distilled down to the very essence of what draws them together in the first place.

Brooke & Ben // Engaged

Months before we did these photos, when this session was just a date on the calendar, Brooke and Ben said the thing they really wanted was snow.  We thought we would have to drive up into the high elevations to find snow on command like that, but instead, on the day we had written in our calendars there was a blizzard.  It snowed and snowed and snowed, and it transformed Wash Park into a winter wonderland.

Rochelle & Chris : Colorado {Engaged}

Fall storms forced us to cancel the first engagement session, so when we pulled into the parking lot and were greeted with pouring rain, we sat in our cars wondering what to do next.  And then the rain abated, the sun came out and our patience was rewarded with a perfect, complete rainbow.

Kelly & Ryan : Ohio Orchards {Engaged}

Kelly and Ryan have fun cornered, and you can’t take a bad picture of either one of ’em.

Jaci Sue & Matt : 14 Years Strong

I spent the evening with Jaci, Matt + and their dogs on a warm summer evening in rural Ohio. Better even than an engagement session, these photographs were taken on Jaci + Matt’s 14-year anniversary, almost to the day.

Crystal & Lee : Columbus, Ohio {Engaged}

I edited these images in a Denver coffee shop with a ridiculous smile plastered across my face the whole time. These two just have fun together.  Nevermind that it was a balmy 100 degrees that day, or that Crystal had never ridden a tandem bicycle, much less one that is as unruly a hunk of metal as this one.  And they were game for a drive to the countryside, game to wander through abandoned sheds and frolic in fields of Black-eyed Susans.

Allison & Chris : Cincinnati, Ohio {Engagement}

Allison + Chris (plus a few with Duncan the dog) around about town including: the bar where they met (the exact spot, even!), Findlay Market, and their house.

Christie & Brandon : Colorado {Engagement}

Images from an engagement session with the wonderfully inspirational Christie + Brandon.  Colorado gave us some mad wind gusts, big blue skies, and a moon to boot.
