I’m in Denver


I told anyone who’d listen. Yes, yes I’m going a wedding…AS A GUEST! I told friends. I told my family. I told JD again and again. I told the TSA agent who frisked me early this morning. Yes, yes I’m going a wedding…AS A GUEST!

I boarded a plan early this morning and arrived in Denver, Colorado for my friend Erin’s wedding. This is the first wedding I’m attending since starting my photography business, so I’m excited to get gussied up, wear heels, and cocktail hour? Don’t mind if I do! Tiny appetizers have always been my thing. Actually, food in any portion has always been my thing.

I’ll be responding to email upon my return, so thanks for your patience.

My best friend from college, Ginger, and I drove to Colorado Springs this afternoon and visited Garden of the Gods. We ran through the beautiful grounds and though we didn’t intend to jog for two hours, but we got lost. Somewhere against the red rocks, Ginger and I leaned over and decided that the altitude? Definitely makes a girl feel outta shape.

    Good for you! I hope you have a fun time. Will you have a hard time keeping your hands still without your camera? oh, almost forgot….appetizers will be there to keep them occupied!
    Have a great time!

    We get to be guests at a wedding in October, and I can’t wait. No lugging gear, wearing pretty clothes, and actually being fed…when everyone else gets food :). Have fun this weekend!

    I am truly jealous! I shot a wedding in Colorado Springs three weeks ago and it was POURING down rain. I wanted to shoot in the Garden of the Gods but God had other plans…. like catching me up on my sleep! 🙂 Have fun.

    I grew up in Colorado Springs! Oh, nostalgia! I haven’t been back since I was 12 🙁 I remember during the summers, there used to be this huge hot air balloons that would dot the Rockies horizon and ohhh it was so beautiful!

    Have lots of fun!

    I grew up in the Springs too…actually, the AirForce Academy. My parents live there now, and I too have a hard time breathing just walking up the stairs. Have fun ATTENDING the wedding…as a GUEST. I’m sure you’ll take gorgeous photos, regardless. 😉

    The sky against those rocks is gorgeous…what an great place to take a jog & take in some amazing scenery. Remember when you get to the wedding to breathe and ENJOY yourself. Do NOT mentally start taking photos in your head of all the wonderful things you see. JUST RELAX. Have a cocktail, laugh and Take the day off…ha.ha. HAVE FUN girl!
