I wonder how I always fall behind SO much with my blog posts … it’s been a year! One could think I haven’t been taking any photos, but I promise I have! :) To see recent photos have a peek on my facebook page, and I promise I’ll somehow try to catch up on here again … I’ll have to travel back in time somehow as a lot has happened on here since my last post, haha!
I can’t help but share a few from my recent Fort Collins senior shoot, so here are just a few :) I had SO much fun with LA, and she did SUCH an awesome job posing. Such a fun, fun shoot! But look for yourself! :)

If you’re following me on facebook, you’ve seen some photos of Moriah’s & Matthew’s gorgeous Air Force Chapel wedding already, and I’m so excited to finally share the full set here! Moriah & I have been friends for quite some years now. When my husband decided we’d move to Colorado about 5 years ago, I knew I’d miss my tightly knit photographer community. It’s not too easy to find friends in the industry especially if you are somewhat direct competitors, but I just had to get in touch with her as I loved her work and I was SO excited to hear back from her after my initial email! It’s fun to hang out with other creative minds and talk business :) Well, a few years passed since and I was SO excited to hear when Moriah & Matthew got engaged! There was that hidden hope they’d pick me to shoot their wedding, but you can’t force your style onto anybody … and my goodness was I excited when they asked me to photograph their wedding! :) They are a truly wonderful couple, and I’m just so very happy for them that they found each other!
Having said this, I’ll tell you, it’s a little intimidating to shoot an other photographers wedding (or do any shoots with them really, haha), but oh so much fun! Especially since you know that they’ll be easy to pose (hehe) and my goodness …. the venue they picked!! DREAMY!!!! What should I say? The day was filled with SO many (beautiful!) smiles, and my goodness, Moriah did you look gorgeous – you looked pretty handsome too, Matthew!!! :)
Enough said! On to the photos!! :)I absolutely love Moriah’s engagement ring!Love Moriah’s brother in this shot :) I think it’s safe to say, it was a happy day :)I mean …. how beautiful ….… and GLAMOROUS is she?!?!Moriah & Matt decided to do a first look so we could walk around the grounds in peace :)I can’t even …
We just had the perfect amount of (unexpected) wind, haha!LOVE these! But then … my goodness, I love them all!Steamy :)That beautiful smile!Which photographer will leave her/his camera at home on their wedding day?! Haha!!Sooooo beautiful!The guys :)Such a sweet crowd! :)Good times, haha! :)I just love this one; Sweet Moriah and her man of honor and matron of honorThat backdrop!!!And my goodness, that chapel!!! Most beautiful chapel I have ever shot at, period!!!I couldn’t resist to take a few inside too!SO. VERY. BEAUTIFUL!!!Oooopsie, Anya crashed yet an other wedding this year, haha! :)Cuties :)Late night editing fun …. ;oPAhhhhhh!I’ll say it’s a little weird to be the friend at your wedding that will take your wedding photos, haha! For a day I was that famous uncle with that fancy camera that thinks he should do your wedding, haha! But everybody was so very sweet to me, I promise I’ve done weddings before :oPSaber Arch :)Such beautiful flowers!Ceremony program design by the very talented bride herself!You know I’m not quite done yet, right? :)Their photos just make me so very happy.

Ah man …. If you just look at my blog, you could think that I don’t actually have any clients, haha! It’s been so busy around here, everybody is trying to get their fall photos / Holiday photos in before the weather gets cold, that I rarely have time to actually blog and just hurry to my next set of photos. Best way to follow my work is via facebook at the moment (so head on over, to check some of my most recent photos!!), though I promise I’ll catch up here with client photos soon … well, as soon as things finally calm down anyway :)
In the mean time a few of my littelest one, I don’t know when it happened, but she just turned 2!? Ahhhhh, mommy’s heart is aching … But she’s so stinking cute, can’t be upset about it for forever ;) I found a cute little spot, so I had to take a few photos of her. You could think we did some sort of park yoga (look at the last photo, haha!), but who are we kidding? We all know that a 2 year old will be in charge whenever she can, right?! Especially since she already knows all of her (photographer) mommy’s tricks ;)
And what happened behind the scenes, haha! :)Fort Collins Photographer
