Julie & Zygi - Steamboat Springs

Well, it's official; I'm are done shooting for the year. I had the disctinct pleasure of photographing Julie and Zygi's wedding in Steamboat Springs on Saturday December 20th. The wedding was held at the Steamboat Grand Resort Hotel and the reception was at the Perry-Mansfield Pavilion.
I was joined by fellow photographer and friend Kevin Alexander of Quiet West Photography. Kevin is a very creative photographer and super nice guy. Although we have never worked together prior to this event, we had a great time and captured some awesome images!
The wedding was coordinated by Lindsey Grannis of One Fine Day Productions. Lindsey and her staff kept everything running smoothly all day long. Here are a few of my favorite images. For a slideshow of Julie and Zygi's wedding, click here.

Dianna & Jeremiah

Dianna & Jeremiah will be married at the Broadmoor in Colorado Springs on May 24 of '09 and I will have the great honer of photographing their day! We actually just met for the first time when we shot their engagement session and had a great time. Here are just a few.

Thanks for the love!

I never ask for testimonials. I figure if I've done a good job, I'll hear about it. Besides, the best testimonial is the one that was simply written from the heart to express thanks. Well, last week I sent out Dani & Doug's album from their wedding we shot at The Dove House last year - and today I received this email:

"We received the package last night. STEVE! It's so great! I was so surprised to see it so soon! And, Doug's parents happened to be with us this week so we got to share it with them. It's so much bigger (and unique) than we expected! You were so right- it's just really cool. The calendar was also a special surprise! How beautiful! So yes, we received everything and you, as usual, superceded our expectations. Anyway, wow. If we can write some kind of recommendation for you, let us know. We have been so continuously impressed with your work from start to finish. You have to know how highly we think of you... We'll chat soon... Thanks for the wonderful surprise!

Suzanne & Blue - Wedding!

Hey, remember these guys from their engagement photos a few months back? Well now they're married and I had the good fortune to be a part of it all. For the third time in as many weddings, I was joined by my bestest friend and awesome shooter Randy Cupps. Randy is quite simply a great photographer and wonderful asset to my success!
Suzanne and Blue were married at the Lakewood Country Club; what a beautiful venue for a wedding!
The wedding was planned and coordinated by Jessica Adler of JA Special Events. Jessica is a treat to work with and did an awesome job of making sure everything ran smoothly.
The flower arrangements and bouquets were provided by Sweet-Pea Flowers. Wow, there is nothing quite like fresh floral arrangements to bring out the beauty of a wedding!

Blue is a Navy Special Ops guy - they make movies about guys like him... Anyway, check out the groomsmen gifts! Arrrrggg!

Here's one of Randy's shots of the bridesmaids getting ready for the ceremony. Very cool indeed!

You can talk all you want about "capturing the moment" or "photo journalism", and as much of that style as we shoot these days, there is nothing quite like the classic beauty of a well made bridal portrait.

Hmmm, wonder where the idea for the shoes came from??

Erin & Kyle in Estes Park!

Wow, there is nothing better than photographing a beautiful wedding in a beautiful location! It's always a bit dicey when planning an outdoor wedding in late September in the Colorado mountains, but when it works - it really works!

Erin and Kyle's wedding was anything but conventional. From the "bridal boots" to the "ceremony shades", this wedding is one for the books! Check it out!

I don't care who you are - that's just hot!

Bloopers! "Ok guys, looking right here, give her a sqeeze, cheek to cheek and give me a nice smile... perfect... and... DOH!"
Disclaimer: No brides or grooms were injured in the making of this photo...

Senior shoot at CU Boulder

I've never shot at CU before; nice place! We had a ton of fun and captured many beautiful images in a relatively small area. The skies were dark and rain was threatening much of the time, so we had to make our own light for most of the session. That's ok, with mom's help, we pulled it off!

Jennifer & Ken's wedding

Saturday, September 13th - wow, what a beautiful weekend we had for a wedding! Jennifer and Ken were married at the Aspen Lodge in Estes Park; a beautiful log structure set among a huge grove of aspens. We are shooing another wedding up there in two weeks; I can hardly wait!

The wedding day planning was coordinated by Wendee Walter of Custom Weddings of Colorado. Wendee did a fantastic job of keeping things running smoothly and was a treat to work with!

I also had the good fortune to shoot along side my very best friend Randy Cupps. Randy is an awesome photographer and we always have a blast when we work together. Here are a few of my favorites from the day! These first two were taken by Randy - nice!

The images below were taken the next morning! Every so often I have a request for a "day-after" session and this was certainly the perfect setting. We drove around in Rocky Mountain National Park and found some cool spots to make some awesome images!

MHDSA Buddy Walk

For the past three years, I have volunteered my time to photograph the Mile High Down Syndrome Association Buddy Walk. The Buddy Walk is a great time and awesome fundraiser for the MHDSA. For more information on the MHDSA, click here!

Meet Marty and Bob Grant; the grandparents of Rayne Adams. Rayne now lives in Phoenix with her parents BJ Adams and Piper Grant and couldn't make it this year, but Bob and Marty gave Rayne a great showing!

Some of these teams get pretty big! This group is 60+ strong!
