Adrian + Flavia | Denver, CO Wedding

Numerous times I caught myself smiling while editing Flavia + Adrian's wedding photos. There I would be, 12 AM, sitting in front of my computer screen, and smiling from ear to ear. It may have been a moment where Flavia + Adrian were giggling amongst themselves that I was able to quickly snap. Or, it may have been the moment when Flavia was putting on her wedding dress with the help of her mother. The joy in the room was palpable. There she was, standing in front of a mirror with her mother tearing up behind her. A true miracle. After being told she wouldn't be given a visa, Flavia's mother was granted the ability to fly from Romania to Colorado (after 5 years of not seeing her daughter) to see Flavia as the beautiful bride she was.

I can go on and on about countless moments that struck my heart, left me smiling, or even made me tear up. But I'll leave it at this: Flavia + Adrian's wedding day was filled with peace and pure joy. Cheers to Mr. + Mrs. Priala. 

Kaylee + Michael | Vasquez Rocks Engagement Session

From our very first email I knew that Kaylee + Michael would be just the adventurous, daring couple we love photographing so much. They braved the windy desert air like total champs! Not going to lie- my fingers were completely numb fifteen minutes into our session. True story. I am a complete wimp when it comes to cold weather. Kaylee and Michael, on the other hand, danced and ran through the wind like it was nothing but a summer breeze. It was certainly an adventure to remember. 

Prior to our engagement session, Alex and I grabbed coffee with Kaylee and Michael. I quickly learned that Kaylee and Michael both love the desert, coffee, and exploring their city-Los Angeles. Kaylee also is a blogger (JustKaylee.com). You guys, her style is absolutely adorable and her blog is worth a look! I also learned that we all went to the same high school, but never knew each other. Isn't it a crazy thing how paths seem to cross later on in life? 

With their Southern Californian, bohemian wedding approaching, Alex and I are mentally packing by bags because we can hardly wait to photograph Kaylee and Michael's wedding day. June, please hurry up!!
