Couples pregnancy portrait sessions are becoming popular with my clients, and this pregnancy portrait session showcases this jubilant time in an expecting couples life. Photographed on location the Thomas Center in Gainesville, Florida, we returned to the location where this couple were married. A very sweet, sentimental gesture and the Thomas Center’s grounds are very pretty with mature oaks and spanish moss.
Raindrops did not slow us from photographing this session, and the umbrellas became fun props.

Scott Krebs and I traveled to beautiful Playa del Carmen, Mexico to photograph Bronwyn and Chris’s destination beach wedding at Playacar Palace.
Bronwyn and Chris chose to have a destination beach wedding after attending a friend’s Cozumel wedding at the previous year. They selected Playacar Palace in Playa del Carmen Mexico to host their wedding. Playacar Palace All inclusive Resort offers 4 star accommodations with modern architecture, a variety of excellent dining options in their restaurants, a beautiful pool, sweeping views of the Caribbean, and is conveniently located at the southern end of the Playa del Carmen village.
Bronwyn and Chris are lucky to reside in the mountains of Colorado and as beautiful as a mountain wedding is, they wanted the sand beneath their toes and the gorgeous ocean on the horizon.
We started the wedding day photographing Bronwyn in her suite and on its balcony overlooking the Caribbean. We exposed for natural light, but adding off camera fill light from SaberStrips. We met Chris on the beach before the ceremony to photograph him with his parents in front of the couples custom made ceremony arch, designed by local Playa del Carmen florist Marvin José Ku Kinil of Maya Floral.

I photographed Amber Osborne, social media extraordinaire, while photo assisting Scott Krebs’ portrait session in Ybor City, Tampa Florida. I grabbed Scott’s Fuji X-Pro camera with a 60mm lens and captured some natural light shots of Miss Destructo in the late afternoon light. These images were taken a few days before Amber relocated to Seattle, WA.

Art Silk and Kristen Sloan photographed Shannon and Mark’s wedding day at Cherry Creek Country Club in Denver Colorado on a beautiful warm and sunny June day.
Shannon and her bridesmaids prepared their hair and makeup in the gorgeous upstairs women’s locker room lounge; a dream location to shoot in. Directly off of this lounge, we photographed the ladies on a covered balcony that provided beautiful natural light that we supplemented with diffused off camera flash.
Earlier Shannon and I had met to do a walk through at Cherry Creek Country Club, and I fell in love with the interior spaces of the clubhouse. Later we explored the exterior covered alcoves and balconies, which kept us shaded on their wedding day, provided filtered natural light and interesting architectural backgrounds. Location wise, Cherry Creek Country Club is one of the prettiest clubhouses I have photographed. Jan Hardy, the social director at the Cherry Creek Country Club was one of the nicest event coordinators to work with.
Bonnie Brae Flowers created the bouquets and flower decor for this wedding. Das Meyer Pastry of Arvada, Colorado made the wedding cake. Sugarlicious, located in Cherry Creek North Denver Colorado, created a candy bar which allowed the wedding guests to make custom boxes of candy to enjoy at the wedding and take home as favors. Elite DJ Matt Kenfield kept the dancing going strong well into the night.

On March 24, 2012 I stumbled upon the Bugs on the Pier VW Car show setting up at the St Petersburg Florida Pier while I was out for a morning cruiser bike ride. Unexpectedly, I ran into our former mailman arriving at the show, along with his brothers who are all VW enthusiasts. Raced home to grab my camera and had a blast shooting these details of the Volkswagens on a beautiful winter Florida day.

Art Silk and I decided to shoot some strobist style portraits of ourselves in an industrial area north of downtown Denver. We shot our Nikon flashes off camera with triggers. During the shoot we used a silver reflector and a new light modifier called SaberStrip. This photo shoot was one of my first experiences with off camera flash and the initial results we obtained were amazing.
