Pinery At The Hill Wedding :: Shaunese + Joshua

A couple of times a year, I get the pleasure of photographing someone’s wedding that I’ve known for a few years. I first met Shaunese along Boulder Creek at a friend’s wedding a few years back and was blown away be her smile. It sneaks up on you with her cool charm then, bam! Full whites, lol. I spied on my marketing friend going through life’s hiway on social media and was so excited when she met Joshua. Raised on huge farm, he traded that life to be a city dentist. Both bride + groom are mature, have been through ups and downs but bring strong family ties and a great mix of friends to the union. This pair will last.

Ain’t No Mountain High Enough

The Pinery At The Hill sits high up in the Colorado Springs cityscape. The views from their reception banquet room add a commanding elegance to your party. Staff and accommodations are first rate — “yeah, we got this.” The grounds provide easy ability to grab portraits with Pikes Peak in the background, or city lights depending on time of day. The bride’s prep room might be the finest in Colorado. Women don’t want to leave there. Shaunese had her posse in cute matching robes and everyone felt pampered pre ceremony. Lots of laughs when there’s time and space to really experience what can be a crazy hectic time.

Shaunese left me nice online review from her experience …

Let me first start by saying that I have experienced three of Tom’s weddings through friends and colleague’s weddings I’ve attended and each one captured the personalities of the couples perfectly. Tom isn’t just highly adept at photography and visual storytelling, he also takes the time to understand both the bride and groom’s vision. I really liked that I was able to have several conversations with Tom and he guided me through the process and asked ME questions along the way as well. His expertise and strong eye for photography are apparent in his gallery, what each bride/groom wants to know is, “will you capture my day as beautifully as I experienced it”. My answer to that question was, “yes, he absolutely did just that”. I can be assured that my family, friends and loved ones in the future when viewing my pictures will experience me and my husband’s special day with the same visceral reaction as the day of. Many splendid thanks to Tom. I have already referred and will continue to do so of his services. To anyone hesitant to speak with him, please do – you will not be disappointed!”

And now, you

Red Rocks Trading Post Wedding :: Denver Grand Hyatt Reception :: Jennifer + Adam |

Within one week of meeting Jennifer, Adam exclaimed to a co-worker, “I’m going to marry her.” The couple met while working at the same family restaurant. Adam in the kitchen, Jennifer on the waitstaff. Fast forward 6 years later … college, law school, starting a business, and now … a wedding!

Jennifer & Adam came to me by way of their officiant, Mike Lee … who was the officiant at my own wedding to Sonia, 20 years ago (nice job Mike, we’re still happily married!). Mike crafts a warm & custom ceremony that’s touching, funny, and optimistic. His 40+ year history as a professional voice over talent assures everyone hears every word.

Red Rocks Trading Post hosted the ceremony and concert going fans of the Amphitheater’s live concert didn’t seem to mind the stretch limos moving through the crowd. The staff at Denver Grand Hyatt executed their usually level of sterling service and MC Johnny Cruz was on his game again! Sunset Limos was responsible for carting everyone around in style, both with a Mercedes Limo and awesome party buses!
