Autumn Wedding at the Pines at Genesee | Genesee, Colorado

When I walked into Alex’s getting ready room and was greeted by a chill group of bridesmaids lounging about in alpaca onesies, I knew it was going to be an awesome wedding day! But that wasn’t really a surprise—I adored Alex and Neil from the first time I met them. Their laid-back, no-nonsense vibe won me over immediately, and I was thrilled when they hired me to photograph their wedding at the Pines at Genesee.

After some getting ready shots at their respective hotels in Golden, we made our way to Clear Creek Park for their first look and portraits. Then, it was into the limo and up the road to the Pines, where guests gathered on the evergreen terrace just after sunset to witness Alex and Neil exchange their vows. It was a beautiful ceremony beneath the evergreens, the golden lights twinkling overhead as the last light faded in the sky to the west. Afterwards, everyone headed indoors to warm up and enjoy a wonderful reception, with delicious food, heartfelt toasts, and an excellent dance party. Here are a few of my favorite images from the day.

Engagement Session | Downtown Denver + Confluence Park

I met Alex and Neil (and their beautiful dog, Buxton!) for their engagement session in downtown Denver on an early spring morning in April. The trees were just beginning to bloom, but the day was warm enough for a leisurely stroll. We had a wonderful time exploring Confluence Park, the Denver Millennium Bridge, and the streets of downtown Denver. This weekend, I’ll be photographing their wedding up in Genesee—can’t wait to see these two again in a just a few days!
