This wedding was so special to photograph for many reasons but mainly because Andrea is a close high school friend of mine! She has always been one of the most authentic and lovely people to be around and I was beyond thrilled when she contacted me to shoot her wedding! This was also my first Indian wedding and it was an incredible celebration. From the Haldi ceremony and Sangeet Party held at Spaces Gallery on Friday, to the Hindu Ceremony and reception on Saturday, I loved getting to document all the amazing moments! Not to mention just how vibrant and beautiful these weddings are! This culture is so rich in tradition and they take great pride in honoring not only the bride and groom but their family as well. Both families were remarkable to work with and I have never felt so included in a wedding day. Watching my friend transform into one of the most stunning brides and marry the man of her dreams was so emotional and wonderful to be part of! Congrats Andrea and Abhi, I am so happy for you guys!!!! Andi
Friday morning the Haldi ceremony was held at Abhi’s parent’s house and consisted of close friends and family.
Friday Night kicked off the colorful celebration with the Sangeet held at Space Gallery in Denver. Andrea and Abhi entered the party with a choreographed dance.
After getting ready and some portraits around the grounds, Saturday’s festivities began with the Barat, the grooms entrance into the ceremony. This was a such a fun capture with everyone dancing in the street! The Grant-Humphreys Mansion was a beautiful and intimate location for their Hindu Ceremony and reception.
When Ben contacted me about photographing his proposal to Amy, I was so thrilled to be part of it and have the opportunity to document such a raw and amazing moment. As I paced outside the Nelson trying to look like a tourist taking pictures, my heart pounded just a little faster waiting for Ben to appear with Amy. Once I saw them come down the stairs I felt like the paparazzi snapping their every move 😉 After the proposal and her quick yes 😉 we ran around the Nelson to capture some fun engagement photos. I may have only spent an hour with them but you can tell quickly how compatible and amazing they are together! Congrats Ben and Amy!
I had so much fun getting to know Natalie and capturing her senior pictures around the West Bottoms and Loose Park. We caught the last of the fall leaves at Loose Park and I love the shots we got from there. Have a wonderful end to your senior year Natalie and happy holidays! Andrea
I photographed Alexis’s senior pictures years ago so when she contacted me about shooting her 2018 wedding I was thrilled to be working with her again! Her and Tyler have this easy, sweet connection that was really fun to capture. I loved how he made her smile and laugh throughout the shoot, a quality that will make their marriage special and fun. Looking forward to their 2018 wedding! Andrea
One of my favorite images from Kristin and Josh’s KC wedding is from the ceremony before they kiss they burst out in laughter over a comment made by the officiant. That image perfectly represents these two and how easy going and fun they are. If they can laugh like that at the alter, I know they have the most amazing journey ahead of them! This was such a fun group to work with and I loved getting to capture this day for them. Congrats again Kristin and Josh, you guys have so many amazing memories to come! Andrea
