Becky & Jay Wedding ~ September 1st, 2012

Well, trying to merge my old blog with my new blog was a disaster! Everything got all kinds of ugly. So, I am re-posting the last 9 years of weddings. On the plus side, I get to revisit all these amazing weddings I have been so fortunate to photograph and to have been such an intimate part of. It’s like reliving each heartfelt day one image at a time.

So, pretend it’s winter time in late 2011. The wind is blowing… Okay, I don’t have that good of a memory but it helps with the setup. Becky and I met at a Starbucks near both our homes. We talked about being neighbors, the neighborhood, wedding stuff, and I recall quite a bit of laughter.  I was beyond elated when Becky said “We would love for you to be our photographer!”

In the months to come between their engagement session and their wedding day we quickly learned how much we all have in common. Becky a graphic designer which my husband once was, Jay an audio technician, and all of us- big fans of music and art. (The music thing actually ties into the story of how this cute couple met, their love for the Giggling Grizzly, the Blue Bird Theater and quite a few other Denver landmarks).

Months flew by and suddenly their wedding day was here! The day had a joyful and electric buzz to it you could feel the minute you walked into the room. Becky & Jay’s families were all smiles, their friends all laughs, and everyone was so welcoming. There are just too many good moments and photographs to share them all.

Their ceremony was so perfectly them. Music, love and the best of life. After the ceremony I was so thankful that we had some time to explore their stomping grounds throughout Denver. The wedding party was introduced, people toasted and the food was good. During the father daughter dance, Becky and her dad got loose and went all Chicago style on the celebrations. I look up from my camera and suddenly they are both wearing accents of Cubs gear dancing and singing the Cubs fight song ‘Go Cubs Go.’ I think the Rockies fans at the wedding let it slide, it being her wedding and all

I share some amazing memories with this great couple I am so lucky to now call friends. Thank you for taking the time to stop by and check out this awesome couple’s wedding. A big shout out to my wonderful 2nd Photographer and awesome assistant, Sara Ford.
