The arrival of Samuel Adventure

If you’ve ever wanted to meet a real life superhero, you just need to meet a mom. I love birth photography for so many reasons, but the real reason is because this amazing woman carries a baby for many months, her body changing, moods changing, and if it’s her first, her life really changes (as does for the dad, but this is about moms at the moment. ;). It’s an incredibly selfless act to bring a child into the world and being a first hand witness to a life being born beings me incredible, immeasurable joy. It’s no doubt God is in that very moment and each of those moments are so very different from the next. It is a huge honor for someone to ask me to photograph their child being born. So many things to consider on a personal level for each of my clients, and I am so thankful Ann and Joe trusted me to be there. Not only was it a wonderful experience, I felt like I left with two new friends. Ann is one of those superheroes. She called me last Wednesday saying she had been having contractions since about 8am. We prearranged that she […]

Marissa and Doug (married) Colorado Springs, CO

I’m going to be totally and completely honest. Marissa and Doug are one of the kindest, grace-filled couples I have been blessed with over these past 10 years. It all began last February when I called Marissa crying because I found out I was pregnant (with my last and final child) and wouldn’t be able to photograph her wedding. I told her I had my business partner Samantha who would do an amazing job, or I would let her go and she could find another photographer. I was crossing my fingers she would stay with us because I really mean it when I say they are an wonderful couple. I wouldn’t be posting this if she went elsewhere. She stayed and Samantha and Laura did a stunning job on her photos. Big props go to Marissa and Doug for all their planning and coordinating of the details. From the dress to the tiniest details of what was hanging from the chandeliers during the reception, it all tied together. Those are the best weddings to photograph and I loved editing every minute of them. Samantha and Laura took all the photos, I edited them and sent them off and I hope […]

September Wedding Colorado Springs Fall Wedding in Colorado Purple Wedding Photography Photographers

Kaylee & Sam (married) Black Forest, Colorado

Ceremony: Groom’s home in Black Forest, Colorado Reception: Cathedral Pines – Black Forest, Colorado Photographers: Megan and Callie – Megan Hardre Photography If you love the idea of a “do-it-yourself” wedding, or a Pinterest wedding, or anything in regards to being crafty at your wedding, you’ll love the details from Kaylee and Sam’s wedding. It was a forest wedding, with burlap, lace, pearls and lots of personal touches. They were married just a few weeks after the fire roared through Black Forest, but thank God, his parents home where their ceremony took place, along with their reception site, Cathedral Pines, was spared. It was however, one of the rainiest ceremonies I’ve ever photographed. We knew that might happen going in though, so we came prepared, and Kaylee was too. And, as it often happens in Colorado Springs, after it rained hard, it skies cleared and we had the most incredible lighting for their photos together. Thankful! See that bow of flowers on her dress? Yeah, she made that! Burlap and lace. A girl after my own heart. Meet Sam, Kaylee’s groom. Their ceremony was held at the groom’s parents home in Black Forest, Colorado. And, Kaylee did all the details […]

Kelsey & Anthony (married) Pueblo, Colorado

Wedding Venue: Pueblo Riverwalk Photographers: Megan and Callie – Megan Hardre Photography Day of Wedding Coordination: Katie with Day Planner Events Kelsey and Anthony were married in Pueblo right on the Pueblo Riverwalk. It was a typical blustery summer day in Colorado, but Kelsey made the best of it as did their friends and family, who all enjoyed the awesome live band and great reception venue along with the view of the Arkansas River along the Riverwalk. And how thankful I am for a bride and groom who are up for sitting down in their wedding clothes on their wedding day for the sake of getting some great shots! Can’t pass up the opportunity for some photos in a row boat. Meanwhile, Callie was with the guys doing their photos. Ceremony on the Riverwalk   Wishing you both years of happiness beyond measure! Cheers!  

Bri’anna & Steven (married) – Denver, Colorado

Photographers: Samantha and Laura – Megan Hardre Photography Venue: Villa Parker Flowers: Melissa Schecter Wedding Coordination: Taylor with Marilee Grace Planning Cakes: The Bundt Shoppe We (Samantha and Laura) had the privilege of photographing a very special day for a great couple. Bri’anna and Steven have an effervescence that attracts a fun group of friends and comes from being raised by and with some pretty awesome family members. That alone makes for a spectacular wedding, but then throw in a beautiful dress, dapper suit, sparkly bouquets, delicious food, and a clear Colorado evening in a venue as unique as Villa parker…it was a perfect night. Bri’anna wanted her wedding to be one that others brides saw and posted on Pinterest we think with all the fresh fun details she included she has achieved her goal what do you think? Bri’anna’s something blue she sewed herself into the inside of her gown. The Brides lovely bouquet detailed with her Grandmother’s earrings {flowers by Melissa Schecter} Our first time photographing a wedding at Villa Parker did not disappoint and neither did our bride and groom — look at these two! Pinterest worthy! Makes for some great photos during a recessional. A sweet moment captured […]

Erin + Jeff (wedding – Grand Lake, CO)

I had the pleasure of spending the weekend in Grand Lake last month photographing the wedding of Erin and Jeff. You might remember them from their super fun engagement session back in the winter. I love the chance to explore new places, especially new (to me) venues and Grand Lake along with the Grand Lake Lodge did not disappoint. Erin and Jeff, since the day I met them, were so wonderful to work with. The details they put into their wedding was so fun, unique and perfectly them. Erin and her family rented a home up there and we did their getting photos there before heading over to the lodge – I had my dear friend Brittany from Brittany Michelle Photography shoot this wedding with me and she met up with the guys at the lodge while they were getting ready. Welcome to Grand Lake, Colorado! Photo by Brittany Photo by Brittany Photo by Brittany Incredible view at the ceremony site overlooking Grand Lake. Incredible details, right? Their father-daughter dance was fantastic! Thank you Erin and Jeff for having me photograph your beautiful wedding. Many, many happy years to you both! Cheers!
