Amy & Marvin's Wedding

Dave's sister Amy and her fiancee Marvin had originally planned their wedding for May 2009 but due to scheduling conflicts and an out of state move they ended up planning about three weddings total! The actual wedding was November 24th and it was beautiful - they decided to have it over Thanksgiving in Amy's home town of Dickinson, North Dakota. I was so honored they asked me to photograph it! Congratulations and I can't wait to officially be a part of the family myself!!!

Amy wore a vintage, knee length, navy blue dress with this lovely jacket - She has great fashion sense! It was such a unique and special dress.

Amy and Marvin decided to meet before the wedding - this gave us an opportunity to get some pre-wedding portraits of the two of them. The bride's father Max is the president of the Dickinson Library Board so we were able to make the most of this unique location's classic architecture and fun scholarly vibe...

We then headed over to the railroad tracks where Amy & Marvin got to hold each other close in the cold for the last few minutes before heading to the ceremony

Amy (a Fiber Artist and teacher) and Marvin made this garland out of different fabrics - it certainly added a personal touch and looked beautiful in the space

Amy and Joyce had a special mother daughter dance toward the end of the evening

Karen's Family

I spent Sunday afternoon with my friends Melanie and Matt (you might remember their engagement pictures) and Matt's mother Karen, brother Levi, his girlfriend Carly and Rocky the adorable dog. Karen wanted a new family picture - it had been a while - but they were really great together and fun to photograph. I can't wait to see them all again at Mel and Matt's wedding!

Lisa & Bo

I spent Saturday morning with my friends Bo, Lisa and their 5 month old puppy Bella. We hung out at a park with the adorable Bella who seemed to like me for some reason (maybe it was the dog treats) and then we headed downtown and walked around Coors Field. It was a beautiful November day - gotta love Colorado! They are a great couple who light up around each other - they are getting married next May and I can't wait to photograph their wedding!
