Summit High School Senior Portraits - Emma Charneskie 2012

I always encourage seniors to get their senior portraits done EARLY. At Summit High School they are due to the school by October 12, 2011. It takes a couple weeks to get photos edited and prints back to students, so I HIGHLY RECOMMEND getting your senior portraits taken EARLY! Even before school starts on August 23rd! The wildflowers are beautiful!

Luckily Emma wanted to take advantage of the summer wildflowers and the purple lupine and we had a great shoot this month at Keystone Resort. And isn't she beautiful... no matter the outfit or background or even with the silly photos, Emma shines! THANKS for choosing me to photograph your senior portraits Emma!

Book early! After school starts it's VERY hard to schedule senior portraits at the best time of day!

Keystone Wedding Photographer - Amanda and Silas's Timber Ridge Wedding

Amanda and Silas were married earlier this month at Timber Ridge at the Outpost at Keystone - a perfect venue! The weather wasn't perfect, a little thunderstorm threatened the ceremony, rained out some of the formal photos, but all in all, it was a PERFECT celebration!

Slideshow online at this link.

I LOVE how happy bride Amanda is in all her photos, and how affectionate the couple is... Silas kept grabbing her all night long! And the father daughter dance had most of us in tears... even as I edit the photos, I continued to cry looking at those beautiful images!

Congratulations Amanda and Silas! Thanks for being such great subjects!

I rented one of the newest Nikon cameras for this wedding, the Nikon D3s, and was trying out some of the high ISO, low light capabilities... I was quite amazed this image came out at 1/13th of a second, f/2.8, and ISO 25,600 sitting the camera body on a deck post. It does have a little artistic watercolor look - a grainy fee. I wouldn't do it with the formal portraits - but I like this image!

Heather and Dave's Silverthorne Pavilion Wedding

Heather and Dave were married at the Silverthorne Pavilion in June and it was a beautiful small wedding! The weather was perfect - and I LOVE when a bride is this happy! Every photo of her she's smiling and beaming and truly enjoying her day.

There were lots of small children at the wedding, and I'm still smiling about some of the things that were said or done... and I love the boy and girl who are spending all their time at the candy bar or swinging on the curtains... I think they might have had more fun than the rest of the guests!

Slideshow online here...

and all 598 wedding photos on this Pictage album.

and I LOVED the bridesmaids for bringing these umbrellas and fun sunglasses, totally spiced up some of the formal photos!

I LOVE this last photo... not only how beautiful Heather looks, but that the ring bearer was entertaining himself in a typical 4 year old way in the background!

THANKS for having me part of your special day Heather & Dave! It was a pleasure!

Keystone Wedding Photographer - Melanie & Brian's Timber Ridge Wedding

Melanie & Brian were married a few weeks ago, on the mountain at Keystone Resort at Timber Ridge at the Keystone Outpost. It was a beautiful day, and an amazing event - although there was some remnants of snow piles still around in mid-June. But a little snow didn't damper the couple's celebration! Thanks so much for having us as a part of your big day Melanie and Brian!

Slideshow online here...

and a few favorite photos belonging taken by myself and amazing second shooter Diana Sabreen of Breckenridge!
