Beth and Ian called us after we had already booked a wedding for their date. Beth had heard our names over and over again and felt that no matter what, we would be the best fit for their wedding photographers. Kyla and I hardly ever split up on wedding days, but we thought we would make an exception. Kyla drove to Silverton to photograph a different wedding and Chris Giles assisted me with Beth and Ian's celebration. They had a beautiful ceremony on Beth's parents property and danced the night away at the Kennebec Cafe.

We are behind on blogging. :) Shannon and Graham's wedding took place on September 18, 2010. They are smart and stunning couple with an eye for style. Shannon's dress was absolutely brilliant on her. I loved the dress's delicate and detailed straps. The wedding was held at Blue Lake's Ridgewood Event Center. The talented April's Garden put together the flowers. Michelle Campbell did the hair and make-up and the Kennebec prepared the food. Indeed a flawless and immaculate wedding.

Jane's story is beautiful. She has always danced. She still dances. Now she has two daughters who also dance, but are too young to understand what ballet means to their mom. Jane came to us to freeze time. She wanted these photos for herself to remember her youth and her grace. She also wanted them for her daughters. She expressed to us how much she would cherish a photograph of her own mother: youthful, hair down, in her element. To us, this is the greatest gift she could ever give her daughters. We admire Jane's foresight and are inspired once again!!!

This lovely lady added a little spice to my life during our time photographing together. Victoria had just the right amount of attitude to pull off a variety of looks, and she really is just as sweet as they come! You are a beautiful woman, Victoria! Thanks for the rad shoot!

After e-mailing and playing phone tag with Sarah, we finally confirmed a date and time for her senior portraits. We met me in the studio to start our afternoon adventures together. We roamed around down town Durango and ended up at her family ranch. This gal is full of sass and was open to all sorts of different photo suggestions. And her sweet "puppy" is actually a full grown dog. I love dogs that look like puppies for a life time. I kinda wanted to put this one in my pocket, but I don't think I would have gotten away with it.
Tessa is a natural beauty, so it does not come as a surprise that she felt most comfortable taking her senior portraits outside. Our goal: to find sunflowers. She is on the flag team, so her flag ended up in some photos as a prop. She made some killer moves with it, but the wind was not in her favor. I was particularly attracted to her jellyfish tattoo that wound it's way around her calf. It takes serious dedication to create such a memoir and it is a very good fit for the story that goes with it.

Wednesday I spent some time enjoying the great outdoors with the Fulton Family. Last year I photographed Rica's senior portraits. So, before sending their daughter off to college a decision was made to make time for some family portraits. The most nonchalant poser of the afternoon was their youngest dog, who could not make up his mind whether to be in or out of each picture. Entertaining to say the least. :)
