I love the winter and I love to showcase these two love birds. Addionally, hot cocoa is one of the little things in life that get me excited. Well I have to admit, I have a long list of little things that I get excited about, but hot cocoa is one of them! Bundle up with your cutie(Sweetheart, kiddos, family, friend, dogs, or just your roommates) in the Colorado winter. Enjoy the moments indoors and be mindful of the connections you have with others to create your memories for a lifetime. 

The S family planned their Thanksgiving weekend in Denver and it was time to get some updated family photography. We planned to meet at Evergreen Lakehouse and the weather was to be mid 50’s, Perfect! Well, that morning, the snow clouds started rolling in and so did the cold temperatures. They also informed me how “unphotogenic” they were.  I couldn’t beleive it because as a photographer, that is what everyone says that about themselves. People think I am looking for something specific.  But really, I want to capture them and the essentce of their family. This family was no exception! And looking at these photos, I can say that we didn’t get  shots of an “unphotogenic” family. Not nearly! And they didn’t even look like they were freezing…which they were. They are delightful people and I am happy to have captured these images for them to cherish forever. Thank you to the S. Family, you are all awesome! And a big Thanks to Laura S. for the refferral!

A vintage themed wedding with pale pink accents took place at the historic Lumber Baron Inn in Denver. This Bed and Breakfast was the perfect venue for this couples wedding. As the rain poured on Colorado, the the couple braced themselves with an alternate plan for their garden wedding. Everyone rushed around to placed the chairs in the parlor for the guests. The warmth and charm of the vintage mansion accented the classic tuxes of the groomsmen and classic pink and black bridesmaids dresses.

Its a tricky day when rain presents! Some say rain is meant to be good luck on your wedding day. I would like to think that this rain has showered the best of luck on Cassandra and Justin’s marriage!

The Rocky Mountains, a picture perfect landscape, why not throw a wedding? Well I was able to do this over the summer. While camping, I found the most pristine location to photograph the picture perfect wedding. The lush landscape provided yellow wild flowers, green grass, the mountain view, and a few clouds to role through the big, blue sky. The day was perfect and we nearly missed a rainstorm.  The bride and groom were fabulous!

This Summer has been a blast! I have spent so much time outdoors snapping away with my camera. I set some time aside to host the Furry Friends Mini Photography sessions in June of this year. It was so much fun, I really love dogs and felt that this project was important. This year was especially sad as many of my friends had their beloved pets pass away and really wished they had gotten some images to capture their pooch so they could cherish there pooch just they way they were in their final days. I know that generally people don’t think to get a photographer for their pets, however, a pet is part of the family. These moments are memories that can be cherished for a lifetime. You can’t deny these furry friends from my photography shoot from bringing a smile to your face. 
I had two adorable dogs in round two of the Furry Friends Mini Photography Sessions in Denver, Seamus and Adelaide. Check out the playful dogs below. I was told they enjoyed their toys when they got home from our session. I got one cell phone photo with a thank you from Seamus, a thank you card from Adelaide with a follow-up photo of the demolished dog toy (She ate the ears off first). But man these pups sure know how to say thank you! On that note, I have to say a big THANK YOU to my doggie goodie bag sponsor, Green Buddies USA, off Colfax, they supplied heathy treats for the Furry Friend Mini Session. 
Enjoy the rest of your summer!

 As a wedding photographer, Saturday afternoons are reserved for weddings. I especially love weddings and not just because its my job. I believe in love, soul mates, hearts flowers, and romance! YAY! I know gushy stuff, but its important! On a June Saturday afternoon, I gathered my things to head to Downtown Denver to photograph Tim and Susan’s wedding. I was super excited! I had seen all of the lovely Facebook posts on their pages from friends and family with best wishes. Yay, wedding day!

A day filled with cocktails, delicious appetizers, scavenger hunts, a photo booth, and a play table for the kiddos, this Artwork Network wedding turned out fabulous! This couple is so in love, they couldn’t get enough of each other during their photographic moments, they commented, “It helps when you love the person”. Well, that goes without saying! But they were especially cute and sincere during their First Look moment alone and their classy first dance.

Without further adieu…presenting a Sneak Peek of the wedding. (I saved some of the best for their private viewing Session Premiere.)

I love dogs! I have two of my own and they steal my heart. Our animals are family members in our households. Most people would not think to get photography of their dogs until it is too late. I cherish life’s moments and see photography as a visual representation of a moment in time for us to remember. Please take a moments to pet your animals today and take a moment to enjoy the smiles they bring you.

The Furry Friends Mini Session was a hit! I recruited my husband to help me with this photo session because I knew that being behind the camera and taming a few puppies, was a multitasking job that I couldn’t tackle. It was a fabulous overcast day, which is a photographers dream! As each dog arrived at the shoot, the owners received their goodie bags filled with coupons, organic treats, all natural dog bones, and a squeak toy.  The dogs knew that behind that tissue paper was a treat, so they tore into the tissue paper and trampled over the lovely bag. I guess the dogs didn’t care as much about presentation as us humans.

Did you miss this mini session, well then sign up for updates on the blog or Facebook and stay tuned for the next themed mini session held by Lori J Photography. I picked a few of my favorite images. Enjoy!
