This is where I share more of my weddings, engagement, portrait and lifestyle sessions along with some behind-the-scenes of all the magic.  When I'm not working I'm still taking my camera around with me to document the travels, my family, and life as I see it.

Over one hundred and twenty years ago, the bride’s family founded the charming and quaint Colorado town of Buena Vista. As the saying goes, “Home is where the heart is” and Hannah always knew in her heart that her hometown would be the perfect location for her to marry the man of her dreams. Years […]

As we leap into the new year, we’re quick to focus on what is to come–setting intentions, curating resolutions, giving our imagination to all that awaits.  But in our enthusiasm for the unknown we overlook a simple truth–the beginning of a new year marks the end of another. And while we face the lure of […]

Max lived with Serena’s best friend and her boyfriend. When Serena would visit, she quickly took notice of Max but got the feeling he wanted nothing to do with her.  He kept his distance, avoided any chance for conversations, and minded his own business. Or so she thought. But Max had definitely noticed Serena. He […]

Today, I want to share something that I learned later in my photography career that I wish I had learned much earlier–shooting with natural lighting. I quickly learned that my style of photography relied on a natural lighting source (daylight) versus an artificial lighting source (flash gear).  What took me quite some time to figure […]

  Dear Sean, I’m sure the first two words in this post made you cringe a bit but trust me, I’ll make my point without embarrassing you too much.  If I have only a few days out of the year where public virtual ogling is reasonably acceptable, then thanks.  I’m going to take it. When […]

I’m always so humbled by my conversations and time spent with my clients. No two weddings have ever been the same in my career as a professional photographer. I witness love in so many different variations and colors. Each story has left a lasing impression on my heart. These impressions that I’ve collected over the […]

  It’s true what they say—it’s not about the quality or price tag of a camera, it’s mostly about the artist behind the lens. I emphasize mostly because I’d be lying if I told you my Canon 5D Mk III didn’t do anything for my wedding photography. But the camera doesn’t make a great picture […]

  Hello blog world, I’m back. I’ve returned from my prolonged hiatus due to our permanent move from coastal Southern California to now the burbs of Centennial, Colorado. I’ve been away for quite some time so let me recap the last six chaotic yet eventful months: Baby June was born, Sean graduated with his MBA […]

  We have a baby!  Our journey that led us to our baby girl hasn’t been an easy one–we had a few many bumps in our marriage, two very turbulent early trimesters, and one heartbreaking miscarriage.  It wasn’t the worst of situations but it also wasn’t the best.  The beginnings were rough but somehow my […]

  If it seems like everyone and their mother’s got engaged over the holidays that’s because they probably did.  I’m sure you’ve seen a plethora of engagement updates all over your Facebook feed from Thanksgiving to Valentine’s Day.  And soon enough, you’ll be flooded with those engagement photos too.  Brace yourselves.  That’s because engagement sessions are […]
