Fort Collins Wedding Photographer
Got to spend our weekend in the beautiful farm country near wellington. We love seeing how people can take a meaningful place and turn it into a wonderful wedding to remember.
What a pleasure it was to photograph Rachel and Jeremy's wedding last weekend. We had gorgeous weather, and the entire carefully planned event went off without a hitch. I am really hoping their families will invite me back soon for their next big event. The ceremony took place at Redeemer Lutheran Church in South Fort Collins. The church is not only beautiful inside but we found several great locations right outside for photos too. We stopped by the Chapungu Sculpture Park in Loveland for a few romantic photos and then completed our trek at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Loveland. The staff at the Embassy Suites delivered impeccable service and the food was superb. Sean from Sounds of the Rockies was the DJ and played a great selection of music and kept both the dance floor hopping and the event on track. Congratulations Rachel and Jeremy!
Kim and Cale came from Alaska to celebrate their wedding at the Tapestry House in La Porte with local family and friends. The weather cooperated beautifully with a very warm and sunny day for late October. The exquisite old house made a perfect backdrop for the event and the photos.
Megan and I spent time with Rachel and Jeremy up at Horsetooth Reservoir one recent afternoon celebrating their engagement with photos. We will be photographing their wedding at Redeemer Lutheran Church next June with a reception at the Embassy Suites in Loveland.
Angela and Eric had warm and sunny day for their intimate wedding in the heart of Fort Collins. Eric got his first look at Angela in her wedding dress at the CSU oval. We took some fun and romantic photos there before heading to St. John's Lutheran Church for the ceremony. The church has beautiful stained glass and nice traditional look. Following the ceremony the guests convened at Jay's Bistro where they were treated to an amazing array of appetizers and dinner choices that looked just as good as they tasted. My assistant Austin got the images loaded quickly into the Macbook so that we were able to show a quick preview of images from earlier in the day along with images from the engagement session. Thanks Angela and Eric for giving us the opportunity to take some fun and unique photos.
It was shaping up to be a sunny afternoon for Kristen and Jeff's wedding. My trusty assistant Austin and I headed for the CSU oval where Jeff was going to get a first look at Kristen in her wedding dress and we would stroll around CSU for some romantic portraits. We arrived extra early only to find the oval was closed off for a bike race! Time for plan B. We skirted the many CSU construction areas to check out another of my favorite spots. No events there, success. I called Jeff and we re-directed everyone to the new spot without skipping a beat. Following a beautiful gazebo ceremony and meal in the events area behind Avogadro's Number in downtown Fort Collins the weather surprised us with some sprinkles. The wedding reception proceeded smoothly both indoor and out and a great time was had by all. Thanks for inviting us, Kristen and Jeff, to witness and capture your wedding story.
Nevermind that Saturday and Monday were cold and dreary, Sunday was a magical day for Jacque and Lanny. The clouds parted and the sun shone on Brookside Gardens in Berthoud. Jacque looked radiant and Oh so natural. Lanny looked dashing in his marine dress blues. Brookside Gardens was awash with color and the staff made sure everything went smoothly. Michael at Behind the Scenes Catering served up a tantalizing meal and Butter Cream Cupcakery provided a unique and tasty cake creation. Christine from the King Soopers floral dept provided elegant Rose bouquets and table decorations. Yan from Elite DJ did a remarkable job keeping a wide age range of guests on the dance floor all evening. Thanks Jacque and Lanny for inviting Megan and I to photograph your wedding and giving us time to capture some amazing images.
We photographed Jacque and Lanny at Edora Park in Fort Collins on a warm and sunny February afternoon. We photographed Jacque for her senior photographs and it's great that Megan and I will be photographing their wedding in May at Brookside Gardens in Berthoud. Jacque is always so relaxed for photos and Lanny is warmed up now so the wedding photos should be great. Congratulations on your engagement Jacque and Lanny.
Marissa and Jason's family and friends converged on the Tapestry House in Fort Collins for a beautiful summer morning wedding. The Tapestry House landscaping looked wonderful. The bride and groom chose a different entrance song for each attendant to match their personality. Catering was provided by Ken at Main Street Catering and pastor Josh Ratzlaff presided over the ceremony.
Megan and I shot Beck & Aaron's wedding on 5/22 and really enjoyed being with them on their special day. The ceremony was a 1st Presbyterian Church in Cheyenne and the reception was at the garden room in Loveland. The planning was impeccable and they were such accommodating hosts. They left plenty of time for us to get some amazing shots. Their catering was done by All Occasions Catering from Fort Collins and the flowers were by Underwood Flowers. Their DJ was DJ Johnny Cruz and their limo came from Summit Limousine. Becky & Aaron will be coming to the studio tonight to debut their wedding photos with their family and friends. Here are some photos to get them in the mood for the big show tonight.
