something to celebrate

Ive been fortunate enough to capture the Instrument holiday celebrations the last few years, they are always an event to behold, and this year was no different. Instrument is an awesome company that produces some of the best content the internet has to offer (, which is no easy feat. The people behind all of this impressive content are equally stunning, as you'll undoubtedly see.

The events food was provided by Chef Andrew Biggs and Laura Harlow-Biggs with the catering company Hunt & Gather ( I've rarely scene such exquisite dishes served at a party, and it's obvious they take they're job extremely serious. Hunt & Gather recently received a GOLD STAR Sustainability at Work certification, for those who know it's definitely no small task.

Classic Colorado Wedding (a real barn burner)

If you ever have the opportunity to take pictures of two of your best friends committing their lives to one another, I say do it! Christy and Cameron's union was one of the first weddings I ever photographed, and it was undoubtedly one of the most memorable. The ceremony quickly gave way to a thunderstorm and transitioned into a sun soaked afternoon of dancing and drinking, who could ask for more?
