Brittany & JP's Cadet Chapel wedding

These images are from a wedding I second shot with my good friend Charlotte Geary in October. Brittany and JP's wedding at the Air Force Academy Cadet Chapel was truly a family celebration. As second shooter, I got to hang back and shoot from angles I normally wouldn't, and capture all the interesting little moments that I might otherwise not get the chance to. As you can see, Brittany is a beautiful girl! She is also one of the most sweet-natured and laid back brides I've ever worked with. I only worked the first half of the wedding until Charlotte's husband Mike stepped in to relieve me, but I really enjoyed my brief time working with Brittany and JP, who is clearly a very happy man!

JP's watch was a gift from Brittany.

Moments before walking down the aisle, Brittany peeked over her shoulder and gave me an adorable smile.

The sabre arch. I never tire of this tradition!

The interior of the USAFA Cadet Chapel really is quite spectacular. What a great place for a wedding!

I think Brittany looks a little like Anne Hathaway, don't you?

Allison & Brian's Temple Events Center wedding

It's been ages since I updated my blog! I wanted to share my images from Allison and Brian's fabulous wedding at the Temple Events Center in Denver. This was my last wedding of the year and it was wonderful! Brian happens to be my best friend Jennifer's brother, so this celebration was especially near and dear to my heart. I'm very happy for them. Congratulations Brian and Allison!

Wedding and reception venue: Temple Events Center
Cake: Simplicity Cakes
Bridal hair: Kim Jundt, (720) 261-8274
Floral design: Babylon Floral
Ceremony music: St. Martin's Chamber Choir
Bride and groom's transportation: Royal Express Transportation

Jennifer (the groom's sister and my best friend) borrowed one of my cameras and hung out with the boys as they got ready. I love this picture she snapped of our friend Spencer, looking so relaxed and happy.

Jennifer also designed and handcrafted all of the invitations, programs and menus. Gorgeous!

The flowergirls, Ashley and Eden.

Since Brian and Allison didn't want to see each other before their evening ceremony, I had to improvise! I took some of their portraits out in the street as my boyfriend Pat trained video lights on them.

Beautiful bride!

Handsome groom!

I'm a little jealous of Allison's canary yellow diamond.
