2016 in Review | Weddings + Engagements | Denver Wedding Photographer

I can't believe 2016 is coming to an end! It has been an incredible year and I wanted to share my favorite shot from each engagement and wedding I shot in 2016. Happy #weddingwednesday! 

I started wedding/engagement season in April with a styled shoot in Napa Valley, CA. You can see more of this shoot here.

I had the opportunity to help Gillespie Photography out with detail shots in late April at Spruce Mountain Ranch. It was so fun to see Trent and Stacy work together, especially on a day when initial ceremony plans had to be changed due to a big winter storm.

Becca + Horacio's RiNo Art District Engagement session was the perfect way to kick off my 2016 engagement season. You can see their blog here. I can't wait for the Fall wedding in 2017. It is sure to be just as amazing.

Marissa + Scott had a two part engagement session. One part at Breckenridge Brewery and the other part at a park nearby. I ended up loving how their images from the park turned out because of how they were able to be themselves. See their engagement session blog here.

I absolutely love shooting bride + groom photos, but these bridesmaids win at 2016. They killed it and I don't think any of them took a bad photo. Tyler Jane + Tanner's Grand Lake wedding blog can be found here.
