Meet Bobby. One of the pleasures I have when shooting authors is finding out what type of genre they write. I’ve met romance writers, children’s authors, business gurus and spiritual guides of every religion imaginable. This hand of this particular author pens horror stories. I have to admit that Bobby just may be my first horror author, and hopefully there will be many more like him in the future.
Meet Andrea. This gorgeous girl has a gift with words and a heart full of stories to tell. Taken in southern Colorado in a pasture underneath my favorite South Fork cliffs, there was the perfect combination of sunshine and fall leaves. Personally, I wish I could get slightly breezy days on all my shoots because all we seemed to do was laugh. This was one of the few shots captured that didn’t have windy giggles in it.
Meet Colorado author Lisa Reinicke. This amazingly sweet and energetic woman smiled excitedly as she was chatting me up about author photos at an author’s conference for published authors. As she was telling me about her four children’s books that were so near and dear to her heart, I realized that her mini shoot just outside the hotel complex was going to be delightful. Her latest and greatest book that just came out about a dinosaur named Bart is one for the Christmas gift list.
Meet Juanis. This fabulous author’s smile comes with an unbelievable story.
Just the two of us moments.
These are the moments that make wedding photography worth it. My favorite moment of a wedding day is stealing the couple immediately after the ceremony and sneaking away from all things bridal party and any attendee peeping eyes to allow the newlyweds 5-10 minutes by themselves. Of course this makes me one of the most hated photographers by the attendees with cell phones and iPads, but it is in this very sensitive window that the smiles are as genuine and loving as they get. It is in these moments that things are whispered for only their ears, panic and stress have been traded for relief and joy. These are the moments that make the best wedding photos. These are the moments that make memories. I love whisking them away for a private snuggle and blending into the background and giving them a few minutes to feel like they are the only two people in the world. It is worth it. Every time.
