Today my wife and I met some friends for coffee at The Market at Larimer.  If you’ve never been, The Market is a cozy bakery and coffee bar in Lo-Do Denver.  While ordering my coffee, I noticed a plaque on the wall labeling The Market as Denver’s best coffee bar for 2001.  At first I thought, great… so… what have you done for me lately? Then I thought; if it were me and I was ever named “best of” in my business, of course I would put a plaque on the wall and I don’t think I could ever bring myself to take it down.

Last summer we shot Haley and Alex’ wedding in Breckenridge and our musician for the day was Christen Stephens.  Christen is very talented, specializing in Flute, Cello, and Piano.  After the ceremony, Christen and I exchanged information and she asked me if I would be willing to send her some photos of the day’s events for her blog.  Vendor networking is an important aspect of our line of work and I am happy to supply images to my fellow vendors.  Helping them to provide a positive visual for their current and future clients is my pleasure.  In exchange, I get a shout-out and link back to my website. Win-win!

Each year, Christen blogs her “best-of” vendors, which is cool in itself, but imagine my surprise when Christen reached out to inform me that I had been chosen as her “best-of” photographer for 2014!  After lifting my jaw off the floor, my first thought was, “I’m blogging about this!”

You know, maybe I’ll win the “best-of” award every year, and… maybe not. But I can promise you this; the plaque is going up and it’s not coming down.

Check out Christen’s blog and this post in particular!:)IMG_0001View full post »

Lauren and Jeremy were married on September 20, 2014 at the Garden of the Gods Club in Colorado Springs.  This venue is very nice indeed – especially when you factor in the location adjacent to one of the most beautiful spots on the planet.  I was joined for the day by Grant Oakes. Grant is a great photographer and a big help on every front.  Many of the images in this post were created in Grant’s camera.  Congratulations to Lauren and Jeremy; thanks for including us in your perfect day!
