Denver Party Ride reached out to me recently wanting my advice as a professional wedding photographer.
They asked the question:
” Wedding photos last forever, every bride and groom wants them to be extra special. What are some tips that every couple should know about how to best capture the special events during the engagement through the wedding process? “
The last eight months have been such an amazing whirl wind adventure. I’ve always dreamed to live a life similar to that of Penny Lane from Almost Famous. I love her free spirit and how she constantly chases after what she loves. Now more than ever, I feel like I’ve gotten to live out my dream.
Working for 303 Magazine has given me the opportunity to be front row to many concerts and festivals, observing and recording photographically the musical experience. So far I’ve photographed over 20 shows, and what I’ve learned about photography, music, humanity, and myself has been incredible. I’m fascinated by an artists ability to connect to sometimes thousands of people (sometimes just a few) in an authentic way through a type of vulnerability. I’m intrigued by the performance and production creating this connection. I’m in love with the synchronicity of different elements of communication (Lights, Sounds, Images, Dance, Symbolism) vibrating together with the audience. And I’m exciting to keep being the witness and recorder, adding my own artistic touch of these musical experiences in my photography.
Please Go Check Out my new Music Page with links to all of my galleries from these concerts and shows.

“They say, ‘What doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger’… I don’t agree. Some things that didn’t kill me, came so close that they’re still damaging. They didn’t make me better. Some things made me worse. And can’t that be ok too? Can’t some things just break you? The whole fucking world wants you to believe that admitting defeat makes you weak. For God’s sake, Bleed. And Bleed openly. There can be pride in vulnerability. Honesty is maturity. And really, it’s the things that did kill me, that made me.”
***** A big shout out to J. Raymond for inspiring a lot of my work recently. Most times I find myself running away with words in my head at night and only able to capture images I feel reflect them. But he always seems to beautifly create these images in words. Thank you sir!*******
