David and Izzy's wedding.

A wedding in late November can be particularly challenging, not only for the bride and groom, but the photographer as well.  The unusually warm fall we've had finally gave way on Black Friday as David and Izabel tied the knot at San Francesco Church. Cold winds, rain and seasonably appropriate temperatures were in full force!  Surprisingly, that did little to stop these two from having a little fun outside in their wedding attire! Throughout the outdoor photo session, I had to remind them (and myself) how important it was to get some outside for the memories.

Well, it totally paid off! The outdoor portraits are some of my favorite because they're so not typical. I'll be honest... it was all David and Izabel.  They're an energetic and fun couple willing to do what it takes to get the job done.... all with a smile on their faces!

Afterwards, their reception was held at the beautiful and scenic Cherry Creek Golf Club.

A tribute and lesson.

Often times, I post personal stories and reflect on my life using this blog as an outlet.  It's because my photography business is just a small part of who I am as a person.  This is one of those posts.

His brothers and sisters called him Billy. His friends called him Bill. We called him Dad. On the morning of December 3rd, 2015 at 10:31 am, he took his last breath while we held his hands, hugged him and said all the things we wished we would've said more when he was able to listen and speak.
