Shelby & Reagan | Denver Botanic Gardens Wedding as featured in CoutureColorado and Colorado Weddings Magazine.

A couple of days before the wedding, I asked Shelby if she was worried about the monsoon May we were having. “Nope, it will perfect on my Wedding Day!” And that it was. Break out the sunglasses for this Denver Botanic Gardens wedding! Regan’s posse was so easy to photograph ~ all naturals. I joked that they looked like a hearthrob boy band. Shelby’s a kindergarden teacher, and she asked two of her students to ring the wedding bells – how cute. No flower pedals to clean up and the tinkling sound demanded everyone’s attention.

Going into yoga class that morning, Shelby texted me … “make sure you get a photo of Reagan’s reaction when he see’s my dress.” A few hours later during ceremony, I was ready — but not prepared for Reagan’s reaction. All time c l a s s i c. This was just one of those days I had to hold on, shoot first and ask questions later.

Kudos to Brilliant Blooms, Denver Tea Room (cupcakes), and Sean from Sounds Of The Rockies who had a sixth sense on how to read the room. Most of all, thanks to Julie for introducing me to Shelby. Planning a Denver Botanic Gardens Wedding ?  I’d be honored to document it. Click on the camera below to see if I’m available on your day.
