Wedding Boudoir Portraits by Durango Photographers

This lovely lady has a job that prohibits me from posting her name or portraits showing her face.  Luckily, I did take a few that didn’t show her face.  She is going to give the album I had made for her to her new husband when they are married.

Her new hubby will love the 8×8 hard paged album with his beautiful wife’s boudoir portraits.  The album is beautiful and high quality, but he probably won’t even notice that:}

Enjoy

Family Portrait by Durango Photographers

This beautiful family came to me because they purchased a Gift Certificate that I had donated to the Family Coalition silent auction function at Dalton Ranch in Durango CO.

Bly, Klare, and Lilly are the Colbert Family and they were so much fun and cooperative – well Lilly wasn’t always so cooperative (she’s 5 yrs old after all).   She would have a little temper tantrum and stick out her lip in a big pout.  Once I finally got her in position to take a photograph, I would move my face away from the camera and stick out my lip in a big pout – this made her laugh hysterically.  Wait 2 seconds and snap – Got It!

Same Sex Wedding by Durango Wedding Photographers

Christina and Rosie came to Durango CO from Texas to say their wedding vows because same sex marriage is allowed in CO, but not in TX yet.  They are the sweetest couple you can imagine and so much in love.  I find it funny that they met on facebook doing a “poking” contest.  They couldn’t quit poking each other until they agreed to meet (they had mutual friends).

The guests put on sunglasses at the end of the ceremony (because their love is so bright), and toasted with champagne.  Love it!

Their wedding was held at Silverpick Lodge in Durango CO, and the DJ was Steve from Mr. Soul Entertainment.  Steve was hysterical and you could tell the guests and the couple were having a marvelous time at the reception.

It was a snowy cold day, so we weren’t able to get outside very much.  There was a small break in the weather so we were able to get a few photographs outdoors. Rosie didn’t want to get her dress dirty, which is totally understandable.  It’s such a beautiful location, I wish we had been able to get more images outdoors – oh well!

Enjoy!

Wedding Planning Timeline

I found this awesome Wedding Planning Timeline on Pinterest given to us by Marry This.  Most couples planning a wedding have never been married before, so this is super helpful information.  I think it also helps bite that procrastination bug right in the behind, if you know what I mean.  The only change I would make is to add doing an Engagement Session 5 months before so you can use one of those images for your Save the Date cards, and also have a guest signing book made using your engagement photographs.  These are super popular with my wedding clients.

Another thing to think about when booking vendors is that they want to be able to plan their summer vacation, so if you wait until a month or two before your wedding, they may already have set your date aside to be gone.  Vendors appreciate having the dates booked way in advance so they can do their own planning.

You can feel free to share this with anyone you know who is getting married.

Enjoy!

Luv, Karen

News and Notes by Durango Wedding Photographers 4.27.15

Here’s the link to read the News and Notes paper:  https://paper.li/ShowmetheLight/1420384991

There are so many great articles in this paper for couples getting married, or more specifically, for the bride-to-be.  There’s a get fit challenge from The Knot.  It’s called the Wedding Day Shape Up Challenge.  Check it out.  There’s a very helpful article called Who’s Who in the Wedding Party.  There’s also some cute ideas if you plan to give your wedding guests welcome packages.

I also love the Public Art Display commemorating the Centennial of the genocide in Armenia in 1915.

There’s also some amazing images and an article on the earthquake in Nepal.  It’s awful to understand what is happening to these people.  One of Durango’s citizens is in Nepal because that’s where he is from and he was there helping to build schools.  He and his wife own a wonderful restaurant in Durango called The Himalayan.  I love to eat there and Karma is a wonderful person, along with all his employees, who are also from Nepal.   Some of their family members have not been in touch so they don’t know their status yet.  We’re all praying for them.

Enjoy all the articles!

Luv, Karen

Beautiful Boudoir Portraits by Durango Boudoir Photographers

This lovely lady wanted to do something special for her hubby’s birthday.  She gave him a gorgeous 8×8 hard cover album.  These aren’t your typical paper type album.  These pages are hard like cardboard, so they don’t bend or get damaged.  He’ll have this forever.

They have 3 boys – that’s much more than I could handle.  I had one boy, and that was enough!

I think she’s a beautiful and wonderful wife and mother and does an amazing job keeping her family happy.

News and Notes by Durango Wedding Photographers 4.13.15

Today’s News and Notes contains so many great wedding articles among other things, so I hope you read as many as you can.

https://paper.li/ShowmetheLight/1420384991

There’s an adorable article about different ways to dress your doggie for a wedding.  Wedding fashion rules that you can break and not feel guilty.

I laughed out loud at the article showing 24 photoshop fails.  Apparently, many editors don’t pay attention to what they put in their magazines and other marketing materials.  Some of these are so obvious that I can’t believe nobody noticed them.

There’s also some nice photos taken from outer space by  an astronaut along with an article about his work.

If you like business and marketing, there are many articles covering those subjects.

Enjoy!

Luv, Karen
