Engagement Portraits at the Colorado Railroad Museum

Although I do have experience and training in it, I'm not necessarily a portrait photographer. I will do them for family and friends, but otherwise I'm just not sure I have the personality needed to be a client pleasing portrait photographer with people I don't know very well.  

This is an engagement session that I did with a good friend of mine that I've known since High School, and her fiance. We had a great time doing this shoot, and I really love how these turned out.  These were my first formal portraits that I shot using my newish Fuji outfit.  

We took these at the Colorado Railroad Museum who were very gracious hosts and we really appreciated the hospitality.

Denver International Airport At Night With Sunflowers

About a month ago it was time for me to head out East of Denver in search of Sunflower fields to photograph.  Due to drought earlier in the year, the fields were not nearly as amazing as they usually are, and all of the old ones I had found in the past were not planted as Sunflowers this year.  Finally I came upon a Sunflower field at dusk.

Once I had shot all of the Sunflowers I could, I focused my attention on capturing some unique photos of the Denver International Airport with Sunflowers in the foreground.

City Museum in St. Louis At Night

I recently spent a few days in St. Louis for the awesome StrangeLoop conference.  The conference party was held at City Museum, which is a very cool and fun place to say the least.  I'm not even sure how to describe it other than if Willy Wonka were to create a museum, he would create something like the City Museum, and even that is not a good description.  Instead of me wasting your time trying to explain it, take a look at a few photos (which is only representative of a small part of the museum):

Westminster Independence Day Fireworks 2013

I had planned on heading to LoDo in Denver to photograph the Colorado Rockies fireworks show at Coors Field, but unfortunately my RTD bus showed-up well past the time I expected it.  Much to my surprise, I had a great view of the Westminster Fireworks show from the bus stop, so once they started going off I quickly setup my gear and started shooting.   Here are a few photos I took of the show.

Supermoon Over Denver 2013

A supermoon is the coincidence of a full moon or a new moon with the closest approach the Moon makes to the Earth on its elliptical orbit, resulting in the largest apparent size of the moon's disk as seen from Earth. The technical name is the perigee-syzygy of the Earth-Moon-Sun system. The term "supermoon" is not astronomical, but originated in modern astrology.

These photos of a supermoon over Denver, Colorado were captured on June 22, 2013.

Denver Pridefest Parade 2013
