I was so excited when I drew Amy’s name as the winner of my first Facebook drawing. I’ve known Amy since she was 12 or so when she and my sister became friends in middle school. Shannon and Amy worked at Vail for a winter together, and when Shannon left for NC, Amy stayed to live the ski town life. Good thing, because she met her husband Eric at a date auction (a date auction!!) a couple of years later. Like us, they are settled in suburban Denver with their pup Lily, escaping to the mountains whenever possible. We met up at Chautauqua Park in Boulder last month right before sunset to snap some family pictures. One of the photography skills I’m working on is working high ISOs… It was getting dark fast for this session, and I had to crank my ISO to keep my shutter speed fast enough for Lily! I absolutely love how the higher ISOs give a grain and richness to the photograph. May be finding myself in low light more often on purpose:) Thanks you two!! Looking forward to hut trips and beers with you in the near future!
Remember Ground Above Zero from my first music photoshoot? I’m so glad they liked their pictures, because I got to shoot again with them, this time a portrait session for publicity, posters, and web sites.
This photoshoot was awesome, and really inspired me to change the way I approach the art direction of each shoot. My friend Jenn (wife of Andrew the guitarist and the band’s art director-extraordinare) and I developed a theme that played off the name of the band – Ground Above Zero – and the built environment around Denver’s Commons Park. I am thrilled with the results, and I hope Heather, Tim, Josh, Andrew, and Kelly are too.
Ground Above Zero is heading into the studio to start recording new music for 2013… but first you can catch them at Moe’s on December 7 for the Yerkish Return Show. Congrats on a great year you guys!
…. and married!! (I stole the blog title from the book at the altar for their ceremony… see below.)
Engaged in Poland and married in Westminster at the Promenade Terrace, Jessica and Anthony had a beautiful wedding day filled with family, friends, a few tears, and of course – laughter. Working with these two has been so much fun from the beginning, I anticipated that their wedding would be a great party… the dancing at their reception at Noah’s in Westminster was epic! Jessica and Anthony are – in fact – awesome, and have a bright and beautiful future together.
Thanks and credit go to Maureen of 40 Degrees Fine Art Photography for providing the lovely images of the guys getting ready you see below! The photograph of Jessica and Anthony hugging after their kiss is Maureen’s as well. Beautiful!
