Do yourself a favor before you play this. PUMP UP THE VOLUME. You’ll thank me later.
This couple can MOVE. Highly energetic, they pulled out all the stops on their wedding day. They had been practicing for months, and showed their guests the big payoff of their private salsa classes with their very own routine. Oh, but not just them. Their instructors also made a surprise appearance and led the guests in their very own salsa class and finished with their own couple dance too. By the end of the night, there wasn’t one foot that hadn’t pounded the dance floor with moves. But to top it off, the jazz band they hired unexpectedly started a New Orleans second line parade and the entire wedding party followed them around the Botanic Gardens in typical parade procession. It was a nice touch considering Nola is Kim’s hometown. Pretty rad in my book.
Congrats to you both and thanks for making this the most fun edit yet!
An old friend came into town during a snow storm and we thought the Denver Aquarium would be a pretty neat place to get a quick photo shoot in of his family and their son Owen. The light and colors in there are absolutely stunning for photography, but rather tricky as you need to make sure your gelling any lights your using and watching out for color cast from the blue water tanks. Once corrected in post though, it has so much potential for creative shots. Wish we had more time as it was a quick walk through, but here are some select shots.
Meggen is a bombastic hair stylist from Indie Six hair salon in Denver, CO. Her new hubby Ian is quite literally a perfect match for her. Sporting a jacket over a Misfits tee, they walked down the aisle together to Metallica’s “For Whom The Bell Tolls” in an Irish bar. Nailed it. Their penchant for rock n roll mischief inspired their theme that day. Riding around in a vintage red Cadillac for a photo shoot was a highlight, as well as watching their family and their separate daughters Jolee & Sean come together to share their love for each other and their new step parents in their wedding speeches (not a dry eye in the room). I thought the surfer rock sound of The Drums really complements this duo and the incredibly fun vibe they put out. Congratulations you two, much love!
Meet Jennifer & Tom. This incredibly fun, beautiful, and classy couple were so natural in front of the lens, it made capturing their moments so delightful as their day played out. They chose a remarkable location to exchange their vows, the top of the Clocktower, and an event center inside of Denver’s first and oldest skyscraper. At night, the faces of the clock light up purple, but inside at the magic hour of sunset, it lets plenty of sunlight glow through the translucent clockfaces. It was an overcast day, so we weren’t as lucky with light, but it was a surreal and beautiful scene nevertheless. The spiraling staircase that leads to the bell and serene views of the city and mountains lends to the aesthetic. The party was grand, the night was happy, and the couple never seemed happier. Congrats to both for such a beautiful day.
