six13twelve: Baby J!

This little lady belongs to a coworker of The Business Partner. She and I had been emailing back and forth for a while now trying to get this session set up. Things kept getting in the way forcing several reschedules, but we finally got it done. And I am so pleased with the result! Aren’t her eyes incredible? And her hair? And her sweet little face? So stinkin’ cute, right?! And her personality was just as bright and happy as could be. She was such a joy to photograph.

Our Very First Maternity Shoot!

My brother and his wife were kind enough to have a baby so that we would have a pregnant woman to photograph. Haha! Just kidding. That would be really weird. Really though, they are having a sweet little baby girl in August and we could not be more thrilled for them, for our girls (cousins are the greatest) and everyone else who will be lucky enough to be close to sweet Matilda. August can get here annnnnytime.

A few weeks back, we met at their house for dinner and then started photos in the super cute nursery and eventually made our way to a beautiful park near where they live. The light was alive. Our subjects were glowing. The whole night was amazing.

six3twelve: Donna and Mike and Their Brewery Wedding

We met these two just before Christmas last year. When we were getting ready to go meet them for the first time, Donna said in her email, “don’t worry, you’ll be able to find us, we’ll be the redheads with the baby.” Sure enough, we had no trouble spotting them. As we met with them and started to hear some of the details of their wedding, we were excited. From the handmade details, the cool colors, the games instead of typical reception dancing and the overall brewery and beer theme, we were stoked. To find the ideal location, Donna and Mike did their homework regarding breweries; they scouted nearly every brewery location in Colorado looking for the perfect venue for their nuptials. Rough job, right? Their search landed them in Aurora at Dry Dock Brewing Company. Out of all of locations, this was the place that took the cake.

To start the day, I (Abbi) met Donna and her Bridesmaids at the hotel where they were getting ready.

five9twelve: Lots and Lots of Family

I intended to sit down and write this many times in the last few weeks. Unfortunately, our children contracted nasty cases of Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease that totally laid them out. It was painful and overall just a terrible experience for our whole little fam. The littlest one is nearly through her round of it and we are so excited. We can come out of quarantine finally! Yay!

Moving on, a few weeks back, we hooked up with these fine folks at Waneka Lake Park in Lafayette (yes, again) to do an extended family session. We know one of these people quite well, she’s our niece! And we have spent time with the others several times over the last few years. They are all such lovely people. They are also quite funny. We had so much fun photographing them…we just love sessions like this.

Let’s get started with some whole family shots:

five5twelve: Brother and Sister

It’s been a while since we’ve blogged. Shame on us! Truth be told, we were just waiting for the good stuff. Lately, our days have been filled with lots of design (which we’ll share soon) and not as much photography. It goes like that sometimes. But the pendulum has swung back the other way and we have been shooting like crazy. So, here is blog post #1 of many more to come.

Let’s take a peek at Tommy and Brooke.  These two kept us on our toes. No…that’s not even right…they kept us in our running shoes! Brooke was incredibly excited to have joined the bipedal world, and she was ready to show off her new skills. And let me tell you, this girl can MOVE. And she can move fast! She’s doing what a girl has to do to keep up with her busy big brother. Speaking of the big brother, his name is Tommy and he’s a tough, no-nonsense kind of dude. He wasn’t giving up those smiles for nothin’! Ha!

We have to say it, we LOVE taking photos of little ones who are these ages (3 and 1). It’s a challenge, but it is so rewarding. Getting a genuine smile or a purposeful look from a 3-year old who would rather be doing 5 million other things rather than being photographed by two random people…there’s nothing like it. And being able to capture the very fast, very sweet, very joyful (and fast…did we say she was fast?) spirit of a rambunctious 1-year old is incomparable. Our adventure took place at Waneka Lake Park in Lafayette. It was a gorgeous Colorado evening and we had such a fun time.

Anyway, say hello to Tommy and Brooke 🙂

Super Cool Flash Mob Proposal

Corwin here, taking the blogging reigns once again…

A few weeks ago, Cody, one of my coworkers at my day job, asked if I would be interested in photographing his proposal to his girlfriend, Tasha. This would have made our first time photographing a proposal and I was excited about the opportunity. This was even before I knew all of the details of his master plan. So after I met with him at the location (City Park) and went through all the logistical pieces and found out how long he had been planning this (at least 4 months) and how many friends and family had been involved (a ton) and just all of the time and details (he choreographed the whole dance, recorded himself doing it and sent that family and friends so they could learn it)…I couldn’t wait (and I also maybe felt a little one-upped in the proposal department, can I get a re-do 6 and a half years later?!). Anyway, Cody’s big plan was a surprise flash mob proposal Um, awesome.

The song he picked was Marry Me, by Bruno Mars. You can hear it on youtube. Might as well have it playing in the background while you scroll through.

The dancers met early to practice their moves as a group.

They all synched together easily and looked great. After a few more practice rounds, word came that Cody and Tasha were on their way (they live near this park and were going to a “festival” that was “being held at the park”), so everyone took their spots and waited. Along came Cody and Tasha on their leisurely afternoon stroll to the “festival.” See them? He’s in blue, she’s in white:

Oh, hey…look what they stumbled upon…Tasha is stunned and I’d be willing to bet she remained in a state of shock the rest of the day.

Shea & Dave’s Field Journal Inspired Wedding Invites

Hi. Welcome to my second (possibly third) blog post ever. Be happy I’m not the only one who writes because there’d never be any. Ha! Moving on…

We met with Shea and Dave before Christmas to talk photography and invitation design for their upcoming mountain nuptials. The wedding is going to be a small, cozy affair spanning a weekend in July in Pine, Colorado. Many of their guests will be from out-of-town, so they wanted to, via their invites, provide everyone with a field journal/guidebook with information about not only the wedding, but also a schedule for the whole weekend, recommended attire, and safety precautions (i.e. drinking at above 5280). It was also very important to them that their invites have a diy aspect.

I got started on their identity and  Shea and I went back and forth together on several concepts that just were not clicking. Then one afternoon while discussing one of those failed concepts, the conversation went to composition books and flowers and sketches and…voila! We had it. I spent the next week sketching everything you see in the invites below. The flowers are all indigenous to Colorado and will also make an appearance in their wedding. Once Shea and Dave approved the invite package, we made a trip to Xpedx to pick that awesome kraft paper (thank you, French!). From there, Shea and Dave took the helm and had them printed and then they included their diy touches (the luggage tags, flower, and green twine). We could not be more pleased with how it all came together. Have a look:

Thanks, Shea and Dave. I really enjoyed working on this with you. We are so looking forward to photographing your wedding in July.

two5twelve – Chip & Natalie are Engaged!

We have been waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting for snow since early January when we first met with these two southern lovebirds to set up an engagement shoot and discuss invite design for their Nashville nuptials. It finally did snow late last week. But it wasn’t just a little storm, oh no, we got a blizzard that dropped 18 inches of snow in our backyard. It’s like the snow made up for the lack of snow from the previous month and dumped all of it in one fell swoop. Still, we were all down to make it happen (even Chip and Natalie’s pooch SoCo got in on the fun). And make it happen we did. Chip and Natalie are troopers who did not utter one complaint while trudging through knee-deep powder in 15 degree starting temperatures. It was worth it, what a pretty scene all that snow made for…
