In a one month time frame, life brought us coast to coast. One week on the California coastline and one week on the eastern seaboard. Never a dull moment. We traversed meandering roads in California, stopping at cute little towns and soaking in the good life. And then off to the crazy city of NYC. Alive and full of people — never stopping, never sleeping.
One week we were catching the sun set over the Pacific with a cool breeze on our backs. And the next we saw it from the top of the Empire State Building — our heads in the clouds, hearing only the faint noise of the streets below.
It is always worthwhile to pause, and take a few minutes to be thankful for life’s treasures. No matter where life takes you, the journey is always beautiful.

I love the Spring in Central Park in NYC –everything is in bloom and it feels so alive. I am thankful to have had the opportunity to photograph Elle & Mike on a perfect day in Central Park. I have grown to love this inspiring, busy. and beautiful city and cannot wait to return. Looking forward to photographing Elle and Mike on their big day in the mountains of Colorado.
Darlene & Tyler were married on a beautiful Spring day in Estes Park — I adore Darlene’s lace dress and white bouquet. And the car they rented to take them from their ceremony to their reception at the Stanley Hotel was perfect for a few portraits. So happy for Darlene & Tyler and their new life together as husband and wife.

We photographed Stacey and Eric’s engagement photos near their home in Washington DC at the Cherry Blossom Festival. The morning of shoot brought Spring showers knocking down many of the Cherry Blossom petals. But it created a carpet of pink petals that I think made the shoot even better than we expected. It was a great getting to know these two (and their cute pup Frank!) and I can’t wait for their wedding later this year in Beaver Creek.
