My clients vacation twice a year at Sunset Vistas Beachfront Suites and hired me to photograph their daughter’s photos for her high school senior portraits. I photographed this senior beach session on a beautiful November evening, with perfect clouds and a little bit of wind to add some drama! The sand at treasure Island beach had formed into ripples, so I took advantage of the effect and shot some early strobist portraits in bright daylight with two Saberstrips. I love mixing natural light portraits with strobist shots at the beach; it truly provides two different looks. As much as I love photographing clients in natural light, some of my favorite images from this session are lit by two flashes inside two SaberStrips horizontal above my client.

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.
