In June 2012 we visited Rocky Mountain National Park for the first time.  We only had a couple of days to spend there, but that was enough time to get some amazing nature photography!  The landscapes were impressive as were the amount of big game and small critters available to see.  Elk were everywhere and I had a very close encounter with one particularly impressive bull.  While in a crouched position, I waited with my wide angle lens as one grazed nearby.  As he approached, I remained very still and snapped away.  By the time I realized how close he had gotten, it was too late to move without spooking him.  I just sat and he kept moving ever closer.  Finally he was within arm's reach and I just froze.  I took no photos during this time for fear the sound of the shutter would startle him, putting me in harms way.  He stopped grazing for a moment and lifted his head from the grass to lock eyes with mine.  It was magical.  What a humbling experience to be in such close proximity to such a majestic creature.  I waited until he was comfortable moving on and finally I got up and walked away, shaken but so thankful for this once-in-a lifetime experience!  These are some of our favorite shots from our trip!

Sarah and Justin were married at Sarah's childhood home and working farm, Leistikow Farms, located just outside Boulder in Lafayette, Colorado.  It was a beautiful day and the reception just added to the magic.  The food was supplied by the farm and consisted of everything from lamb to goat and more.  It was delicious!  The party was a big part of this day and it rocked late into the night!  Be sure to check out Part 1 of this wedding to see the whole story!

wow these are amazing! I'm from the other side of the pond in England and wanted a peek to see how it is done in the usa. These are exceptional! You control the light really well. I bet the bride and groom love these.

Sarah and Justin were married in late June, 2012 and we were so pleased to be a part of it!  This wedding was actually a referral from one of Sarah's bridesmaids, Aicha, who coincidentally was also a bridesmaid at Bebe's wedding in Nigeria, which is where we originally met.  It seems we run into Aicha in the most far flung places :-).

Sarah and Justin currently live in Los Angeles, California but chose to hold their wedding at Sarah's childhood home, a working farm called Leistikow Farms in Lafayette, Colorado, just outside Boulder and under the watchful eye of the stunning Rocky Mountain Range.  The couple has been together for some years now and have a beautiful baby boy named Everett.  They decided the time was finally right to make it official.

The wedding day was lovely, though hot ... like record breaking kind of hot!  The high the day of the wedding topped out at 105 degrees, the hottest recorded temperature in Lafayette's history.  We were so excited to be leaving the heat of Phoenix behind to head to the cooler climates of Colorado ... oh well, it was still stunning :-).  There were also several forest fires going on at the time, including the horrible fire that destroyed many homes and blackened forests for miles around Colorado Springs.  It seemed everywhere you looked on the horizon was another large plume of threatening smoke rearing it's ugly head.  Fortunately, the fires and smoke stayed at bay and the wedding went off without a hitch.  Thank you both for having us as your wedding photographers and inviting us to your family's wonderful farm!  We had a great time!!
