Lisa and Bill - Happily married in Cabot, AR!

I am so honored when the I get to photograph the people I love! This wedding was especially close to my heart because this is my brother Bill and his new wife Lisa. I am so happy that they found each other and are starting this new life together. Congratulations!!!

Apparently this bench was made from an old church pew - so stunning

Lisa and Bill's mothers checking in on the Bride

The getting ready room was a playroom - I love this!

My new Sister-In-Law - she made such a beautiful bride!
The bridesmaids were glowing in these fabulous colors




Lisa's father (also named Bill) walked her down the aisle






Right after the first kiss - a fun moment!


The happy family



A very special toast from Bill's good friend and former Commander in Iraq



These candles were hung on a tree in the center of the reception- beautiful!

Too cute!

I rode with them in the "getaway truck" to get some outdoor portraits in the Arkansas heat

This is the dock where Bill proposed to Lisa - I am so glad we went there.
How special it was to get pictures here!


I love how her veil is blowing in this one

Denver Band- Guitar Villains

So this is the Guitar Villains - a local Denver Band that is not like your usual group of talented musicians and vocalists. They call themselves a Karaoke Band- like normal karaoke - where you sing with a music track. However a night with Guitar Villains is very different- the audience participants get on stage and sing with a very live, very cool band and compete to be the evenings' best singer. How many people actually get to live their fantasy of being up there, in the lights belting out their favorite cover song?
The band asked me to photograph their finals - where they invited past winners to sing in an all-out battle for vocal supremacy... or something like that. Here are my favorites from the night. They truly rocked out and with their main singer Victoria - they provide a full concert-like experience but with the element of karaoke - how fun!

We started with some group shots of the band



They were playing at local legend Herman's Hideaway









Rocking out!









At the beginning of the second set - they lit candles and played a soft song
