Photographs and Portraits that capture your memories to last a lifetime.
Life Events are all those special occasions that we plan and enjoy.
Weddings, Baptism, Confirmation, Bar/Bat Mitzvah, Quinceanera Celebrations, Anniversary Celebrations as well as some significant Birthday Celebrations to name a few.
Planning is extremely important in the success of these events. Therefore all Life Events require consultation prior to the actual scheduling or booking of the event. If the event is outside of Colorado a telephone conference can be scheduled. At the time of the consultation a deposit is required to book the date on Katherine's calendar.
Katherine dedicates the entire day for the event. What this means is if your event is at 2pm in the afternoon you can be assured that there is not going to be anything else on her schedule for that day. This assures that she and her assistant are fresh and completely focused to capturing your memories and recording your special story.

Wedding Photography Services
We take great pride in providing our brides with beautiful storytelling wedding albums that capture the beauty and emotion of your special day.Your peace of mind comes from my 30 year love of photography.The studio has set the standard for photographic excellence as well as exceptional service.Over the years we have evolved from a conventional photography studio into a more exciting enterprise including Destination Weddings and Events.
You will receive art-like images and albums which have a scenic quality, are emotionally charged and have a natural look with an artistic impression.Some photographers call it wedding photojournalism.It is a refreshing new approach to wedding photography.Your photographs will have a natural non-posed and spontaneous feel.It takes an instinctive creativity to be able to combine portraiture and storytelling photography in a wedding album and keep everything natural. Photography is a timeless treasure that will become a family heirloom. Even in economic hard times, capturing and preserving these life events is an important part of your wedding planning. The cake will be gone, the food will have been eaten, the dress put away and the memories will all be captured in those wedding pictures and albums. Professional photography to capture these memories is something every bride needs to consider and hiring the right photographer is an absolute must. My commitment to my brides is second to none. I meet with my clients and discuss all the details of their upcoming special event. On the day of your wedding, I do not schedule anything other than your wedding, making sure my role in capturing your beautiful wedding portraits is exclusively dedicated to you.

Almost every bride and groom we work with comes to us by referral from a past client.The only way we get a referral from a bride is: if she likes us, trusts us and we deliver to her service that is above and beyond her expectations!We want to earn your trust and referrals! Most photographers spend so much time trying to get new business that they sometimes neglect their current clients.We however don’t have to spend a lot of effort to find new brides to work with because our friends, like you, send their friends to us. That way we can spend all of our effort making sure your wedding is the best it can be. So you can help us by referring your friends to us for future photography needs. Thanks again. A Wedding Questionnaire is presented to every bride to complete and return during one of the planning meetings so every important detail is covered.It has been my experience that the more comfortable the Bride and Groom are with their photographer, the better the day goes.Katherine does not arrive at your event as a stranger but as your personal photographer, knowing special details to capture your day making it uniquely yours. Keeping in mind the ultimate goal is to have a Wedding Album, which reflects the memories of the day to cherish for a lifetime. Plan to spend some time with Katherine prior to your wedding as well as afterwards to make sure your wedding experience is complete. Katherine does not rush weddings and takes extra care to assure the details of the day are captured.
More detailed information about this process is discussed at the initial no cost consultation appointment. It is recommended that both the Bride and the Groom meet with Katherine at least once prior to the wedding date. Ultimately, Katherine's goal is to make sure the couple is completely comfortable and relaxed as well as confident that the day will be represented professionally and without worry.

Photography for special events are all tailor-made to fit individual personalities and needs. As with wedding coverages, it is important to plan and again the consultations are required when booking these services.
All Life Events are very important to us and when we go to such details to plan an event we want to make sure all the details are handled so we can "worry" for the lack of better words, about other things, not the photography. When meeting with Katherine about your upcoming events, make sure you bring a list of key things you are expecting and share openly any concerns or problems that you might have.
Non-Wedding Life Events are packaged according to coverage desired and contracted by the hour. Overtime hourly rates are discussed at the consultation and or planning meetings.
When dealing with small children or aging seniors it is important to keep them as comfortable as possible without undue stress, stress shows in photographs. Make sure any special needs are discussed which will help make the event run even more smoothly.
