Colorado wedding photography -- Janet & Gene's wedding in Manitou Springs

[ wedding photography in Manitou Springs ]

Janet and Gene were married on June 5th in Manitou Springs, with family members traveling from as far away as Germany to celebrate with them. Most of Janet's loved ones flew in from New Jersey, which was great because these people know how to party! ;o) We had such a blast, and Janet made me cry three times, darn it. I'm such a sucker for a sentimental bride!

Janet got a little emotional right before Gene was to see her for the first time that day.

Signing the Ketubah

Gene and Janet had a traditional Jewish wedding ceremony, immediately after which he threw her over his shoulder and double-timed it down the aisle, cracking everybody up.

Janet dislikes being photographed -- I tried my hardest not to drive her crazy all day! I think she looks excited and beautiful in this photo.

Love the wine cork escort card holders -- nice touch!

Janet's expression was priceless as she was lifted into the air during the Horah. Hilarious!

KILLER party!

Colorado Springs portrait studios: the R family

[ family portraits in Colorado Springs ]

Say hello to the R family! Drew and Kelly are parents to a pair of adorable twin girls, B and K, who were just shy of their third birthday when we made these portraits last month. They are SO cute! As you can see, they're not identical twins, and their personalities are distinctly different as well. I really enjoyed spending the afternoon documenting a day in the life of this sweet little family!

Could you say no to this sweet little face? Didn't think so! ;o)

So cute! Love the curly hair!

They ordered a great big print of this one - it looks awesome!

Does Kelly look cold? ;o) She's from Florida and can't stand chilly Colorado temps!

These two met when Kelly was still in high school over ten years ago, and they're still madly in love.

Colorado Springs family portraits: the M family

[ Colorado Springs portrait studio ]

Introducing the M family! Erin and Mac have two beautiful kids 15 years apart in age. We did these pictures at high noon on a VERY sunny day (and you photographers out there know how challenging that is!), only a couple of weeks before they packed up and moved out of state. It'll be a while before they get to see Mac's mom again, so these portraits will help remind them all of happy times together in Colorado.

Just a few pictures of Erin and Mac, because they have plenty of pictures of the kids but NO pictures of the two of them.
