It's definitely one of my favorite mountain wedding venues because of the breathtaking views and after a long day of photographing there is nothing like relaxing in the a natural hot springs.

I have been good friends with Caitlyn for about 6 years now. We met through an old job and then continued our friendship by playing on a local soccer team together. I quickly learned that Caitlyn is very injury prone and I have witnessed many injuries on the field, around the house and various other places . So, when I heard of this guy named Matthew living in her parents basement that happened to also fit some of Caitlyn's non-negotiables.... 1. Christian 2. Tall  and a major plus...physical therapist! How perfect is that? It's safe to say Caitlyn has been a lot healthier since she met Matthew ;)

Caitlyn and Matt actually first met in her parent's home. Matt was on a rotation for school in Colorado Springs and had a mutual connection with The Bean's Family. Once Caitlyn's mom learned more about Matthew, she thought hmmmmm maybe he could be good match for my single daughter Caitlyn? Mrs. Beans started making more home cooked dinners to get Caitlyn to come over more often and interact with Matt.....and folks, it worked! The two started to spend more and more time together and eventually realized.....hey there is something here! And now they are married!

As one of Caitlyn's good friends, I don't think there is a better match for her and I am so happy they found one another. In each picture that was captured it' is evident how much they care for one another and it was such an honor to be their wedding photographer! Here are a few of my favorites from their beautiful Colorado mountain wedding.....Enjoy!

First Presbyterian Church & Phantom Canyon Brewery Wedding // Kathleen & Lee https://katethomasphotography.com/blog/2016/10/first-presbyterian-church-phantom-canyon-brewery-wedding-kathleen-lee This was a true Downtown Colorado Springs wedding! We started the day at the The Antlers Hotel where Kathleen had a beautiful setting to get ready to marry Lee. She was surrounded by some of her close friends and family and the bride couldn't stop smiling. We then headed to First Presbyterian Church where Kathleen and Lee said shared their vows and made it official. Then they ended their day by by dancing the night away over dinner and drinks at Phantom Canyon Brewery. One of my favorite details of their wedding day was the water color paper art. I had so much fun capturing it! Here are some of my favorite shots from Kathleen & Lee's wedding day. Enjoy!

Secret Garden & Space Foundation Wedding Colorado Springs // Trinity + Alex https://katethomasphotography.com/blog/2016/8/secret-garden-wedding-colorado-springs-trinity-alex The wedding day started at the beautiful Secret Garden in Colorado Springs. I knew I was going to have fun capturing this wedding when Trinity and Alex informed me their wedding is going to be half Beauty and the Beast and half Star Wars themed. For anyone who knows me well, I LOVE themed things! So, needless to say this was an awesome wedding for me to photograph. The Secret Garden perfectly fit their Beauty and the Beast theme and then we ended the night at the Space Foundation for the perfect location to reflect Alex's love for Star Wars. This location was such a fun place for me to expand my creativity, because it's different than my usual outside locations, but I love the way the images turned out! Here are a few of my favorites from their day, enjoy!

Hudson Gardens and St. Francis Assisi Wedding // Amy + Todd https://katethomasphotography.com/blog/2016/6/amy-and-todd-hudson-gardens-wedding-Colorado-wedding-photographer        I am usually more drawn to images of couples whose joy and happiness show through in their photos and Amy & Todd really made it really hard on me to pick my favorites for the blog post! I had the hardest time, because they look so happy together in every photo! But, I guess this isn't a bad problem to have ;) We started their day at a beautiful Roman Catholic Church in Castle Rock called St Francis Assisi. The church sits up on a hill overlooking the gorgeous mountain views and all of Castle Rock. All of the windows inside the church have this same breathtaking view making it a perfect place to have a wedding ceremony. Then we headed to Hudson Gardens for their reception to take pictures in a beautiful garden and their reception was held in the cutest old fashion log cabin. Amy & Todd were beyond fun to work with, I love when couples burst into laughter while I am posing them, yes it's usually because they feel a little silly. But, when they laugh about feeling silly, it's my favorite time to keep the camera clicking. I feel that the laughter helps portray the couple's natural state together. But, really they made my job easy! They were both so kind and included me in their day and relationship like we have been friends for years. Amy and Todd thank you for being such wonderful people to work with and I hope the laughter and smiles continue for years to come! Here are some of my favorite from their beautiful day.....enjoy!

Lindsey + Clay Anniversary Session // Happy 6 years! https://katethomasphotography.com/blog/2016/1/lindsey-clay-anniversary-session It's sessions like Lindsey and Clay's that get my heart super excited about photography. It's so much fun to have photographer friends who you can share ideas and your quirky creativeness with. Lindsey and Clay were actually my very first photo session back in college, I photographed their engagement session on my little Canon point and shoot and then Lindsey and I went to the computer lab together to edit the photos in photoshop. It's fun to look back and see how far we have all come. Lindsey is a very successful portrait photographer in central florida and is constantly answering inquiries for clients wanting her to photograph their wedding or cute little newborns...and she is AMAZING! Check out her work here: http://www.lindseycassidyphotography.com Clay is also a very successful photographer who specializes in photo and video for the firearms industry and also helps firearm companies with their advertising and social media. Clay has more Instagram followers than I even thought possible! Yes, I am a little jealous, but super proud of him and his work! You can check out some of his work here: http://www.closequartersmediagroup.com  All in all, I am very blessed to call these two my good friends and I know our friendship will continue on for many years. Here are some favorite shots from their anniversary session...Enjoy!

I have been waiting to share this wedding on the blog since the day they booked me. They couldn't of asked for a more perfect wedding day at this beautiful ranch! All throughout the day both Kate and Mark were beaming with happiness and excitement to marry their best friend. I have honestly never seen a more excited bride than Kate! She was jumping for joy all throughout the day with the most contagious smile and laugh around. These two wonderful people are probably the nicest people I have ever met whose love for Christ and one another shine so brightly through them. I am beyond blessed that Kate & Mark chose me to photograph their beautiful wedding day as they were surrounded by their closest friends and family. I also had the privilege of having an amazing second shooter Megan Wynn, she helped make my job easy :) Here are some of my favorite shots from their day....enjoy!

Colorado Springs Wedding Photographer // Dayna + Matt Engagement https://katethomasphotography.com/blog/2015/11/dayna-matt-engagement---colorado-springs-wedding-photographer There were so many things to fall in love with at Dayna & Matt's engagement session. I was beyond excited when Dayna told me she wanted to involve their horse and dogs. I was a little nervous about the challenge, but everyone was on their best behavior and very photogenic! We got some of the most adorable family shots.... AND the location! Oh my! Dayna and Matt picked a place north of Fort Collins called Eagles Nest Open Space. I was blown away by the views, open sky and the amazing sunset! A photographers dream :) Dayna and Matt were actually giggling at me because I couldn't hold in my excitement of the beauty that night! Here are some of my favorite shots from their engagement session. I can't wait to share some from their September wedding next  year! Enjoy!

Nina + Vance The Lodge at Cathedral Pines Wedding // Colorado Springs Wedding Photographer https://katethomasphotography.com/blog/2015/11/nina-vance-lodge-at-cathedral-pines-wedding---colorado-springs-wedding-photographer There were so many beautiful and unique things about Nina & Vance's wedding day that were easy to fall in love with. Their October wedding day had fantastic fall weather, with a little bit of sunshine and a little bit of clouds. The Lodge at Cathedral Pines it probably one of my new favorite venues for smaller weddings, it's a beautiful lodge tucked away in Black Forest that offers some great scenery for photographs. A local folk band Smith House play during the ceremony and reception who were incredible! The flowers at the wedding were probably some of the most unique I've ever seen! Nina's bouquet was made out of dried flowers from an Etsy shop called The Flower Patch and they looked absolutely amazing!  But, one of the cutest details of the day were the flower girls. Nina and Vance chose to have their flowers girls be their grandmothers, and yes, it was just a precious as it sounds! At the reception, Nina & Vance had some scrumptious treats at their dessert bar from Radiantly Raw Chocolate. Who wouldn't want chocolate at their wedding? AND healthy chocolate! If you haven't tried their chocolate yet you need to! It's amazing! And of course Nina and Vance had coffee at their reception because they are big coffee lovers, so they had a coffee bar with baristas from Colony Class serving pour over coffee throughout the night. I loved every detail that was poured into their wedding that reflected who Nina & Vance truly are. Oh... and I can't forget the awesome vintage truck that was redone by the Groom's family. It made an awesome prop for photos as well as a great entrance to the ceremony for the bride. Thank you Nina and Vance for letting me be a part of your special day. I loved every moment I got to capture! Here are some of my favorite shots from their wedding.... Enjoy!

Caitlin + Chet // Black Forest Bed and Breakfast Wedding https://katethomasphotography.com/blog/2015/10/caitlin-chet---black-forest-bed-and-breakfast-wedding In the midst of a busy season, I always enjoy sharing a blog post filled with memories of a beautiful wedding day! I had so much fun photographing Caitlin and Chet on their big day. They got married at a quaint bed & breakfast in Black Forest with beautiful log cabins and evergreen trees surrounding them. The weather for the day couldn't of been more perfect with a little bit of sunshine and a little bit of clouds that allowed for a beautiful outside reception as well. They were surrounded by their closest friends and family that filled the day with laughter and joy. Here are some of my favorite shot from Caitlin & Chet's wedding day ..... Enjoy!

Heather + Justin // Red Crags Estates https://katethomasphotography.com/blog/2015/8/heather-justin-red-crags-estate I had so much fun with Heather and Justin at the beautiful mansion of Red Crags Estates. This unique place is tucked in the hills of Mantiou Springs with spectacular views of Pikes Peak and Manitou valley. The mansion was originally built in 1874 and had some fascinating history to show for. Heather & Justin celebrated their marriage with close friends and family and picked the perfect place to do so! Here are some of my favorites photos from the day....

Hannah's senior session was quite the adventure! We first tried to have the session in Monument but an ugly storm rolled in...so we migrated to one of my favorite spots at Garden of the Gods. Somehow we got lucky and the crazy storms of Colorado missed us. Even though we didn't have sunshine, the flowers and Hannah's sweet smile brightened up the session! Here are some of my favorite shots from Hannah's senior session...

Katie + Chase LaForet Wedding // Colorado Springs Wedding Photographer https://katethomasphotography.com/blog/2015/8/katie-chase-laforet-wedding---colorado-springs-wedding-photographer The beautiful day started at the bride's family home where she grew up. The glowing bride was surrounding by her close girlfriends and family to help her get ready and most importantly pray over her marriage. We then ventured to where all the wedding day festivities were held at the beautiful LaForet. LaForet is a conference and event center that is also the perfect setting for a  forest wedding. This awesome venue is set amongst the beautiful pine trees making the setting a photographers dream for photos! But honestly, my favorite part of the day? Seeing the bride and groom interact. They both decided to wait till the ceremony to see one another for the 1st time, but getting to interact with them seperatley showed me just how strong their love is for one another. They both couldn't stop smiling talking about each other...it was beyond precious! They chose to pray with each other before the ceremony around a corner so they wouldn't see each other....and this showed me that not only is their love for each other strong but their spiritual bond was also strong. This sweet couple is a testament to putting God first in their marriage before it even began. The rest of the day was one for the storybooks...Katie and Chase surrounded by all of their loved ones dancing the night away. Here are some of my favorite shots from their day....

Robin & James Botanic Gardens at Chatfield Wedding // Colorado Wedding Photographer https://katethomasphotography.com/blog/2015/6/robin-james-botanic-gardens-at-chatfield-wedding---colorado-wedding-photographer I am so happy to share Robin & James' beautiful wedding day! I loved so many things about this wedding....the colors, the sunshine, the chapel, the gardens and most of all the people. Robin and James are beautiful people on the inside and out and their love for each other was beaming throughout the day. The day started out on the edge of Littleton, Colorado at Three Trees Chapel. This quaint little chapel was the perfect fit for Robin and James and their guests. The couple brought their guests to tears as they read aloud their heartfelt vows to one another and became husband and wife. The reception at Denver Botanic Gardens at Chatfield, was beyond adorable! The lush gardens had lots of beautiful flowers that were inspired by all of the wildflowers that are native to Colorado. Their reception tent sat next to an old school house and big trees that made it the perfect setting for an evening of celebration. Robin & James thank you so very much for letting me be a part of your wedding day by capturing all of your precious memories. Here are a few of my favorites from the day....enjoy!

Kate & Mark Engagement Session // Colorado Springs Wedding Photographer https://katethomasphotography.com/blog/2015/6/kate-mark-engagement-session---colorado-springs-wedding-photographer Boy do I feel lucky that this couple contacted me to photograph their wedding and engagement session! Kate & Mark attended a wedding I did last summer that was truly unforgettable! Heather & Brad's wedding ceremony was set outside amoungst the evergreens of Elbert, Colorado and it started to poor down rain during their ceremony! All of the guests and wedding party were troopers giggling in the rain as they watch Heather and Brad get married. Kate & Mark were guests during this ceremony and must of saw me running around like crazy, soaking wet, capturing all the moments...and that's when they both thought....she is going to be our wedding photographer one day. Okaaaay...maybe not just like that, but I am so glad that Kate and Mark found me :) 

Here is a little bit of their story (Thanks to The Knot for making wedding websites when I need a brief reminder of couple's stories)

Kate was working as a nurse when Mark's dad was a patient at the hospital. While spending time with Mark and his family, Kate soon became impressed with Mark and his family. She also didn't mind Mark's rugged good looks :) Kate gave Mark her number to help him with his job search since he had just returned from Afghanistan. Soon Mark realized just how great Kate was and asked her out! (Kates are great aren't they?? ;) Fast forward to now.... In 56 days they are going to have a beautiful Spruce Mountain Ranch Wedding that I am beyond excited to photograph! I too got married at this amazing ranch and I am thrilled to be able to capture the moments of their special day at this venue.

Here are a few of my favorites from their Columbine Open Space engagement session. One of my new favorite Castle Rock engagement locations! ( Thanks for the find Kate!) Why can't every spot have an awesome rustic red barn?!

Amy & Nick Brookside Gardens Wedding // Colorado Springs Wedding Photographer https://katethomasphotography.com/blog/2015/6/amy-nick-brookside-gardens-wedding---colorado-springs-wedding-photographer It was a  beautiful sunny summer day and all the flowers at Brookside Gardens were in full bloom. A perfect day for a summer wedding! Amy, the glowing bride could barely hold in her excitement to marry the man of her dreams all day. Since day one Amy and Nick have spoken to me like a best friend and a part of their family. This alone tells me how welcoming and kind their relationship is to one another. They  were so smitten with one another and also couldn't stop cracking jokes with their friends and family around them. This made my day so enjoyable! Just to show a little bit of their humor....I visited their wedding website recently and couldn't help but laugh at their about us page...I just have to copy and paste to show a little of Amy & Nick's fun loving humor: 

Straight from Amy & Nick's Knot wedding website:

About Nick:

All about Nick (in Nick's own word): "All that needs to be said is sent to Earth from God. Wait don't put that....what do I say? I hate autobiographies! Amy we are not in a court house right now, stop writing down everything I say. (clear's throat) My fiance is the greatest woman in the world. The end"

About Amy:

"What he said."

Yes, Amy and Nick I too hate autobiographies and love that you guys kept this as your about us page to invite us in on your humor in life! Thank you for letting me be apart of your special day! Here are some of my favorites from their beautiful wedding day: Enjoy!

 

Thank you Deziree's Photography for being a wonderful second shooter!

Gabby Class of 2016 // Colorado Springs Senior Photographer https://katethomasphotography.com/blog/2015/6/gabby-class-of-2016---colorado-springs-senior-photographer Senior sessions are quickly becoming one of my favorites! Seniors have a zest for their life and so much to look forward to in their future. I love trying to bring out the unique things about each senior that will represent them well. Gabby and I had a blast doing this! I met with Gabby and her mother a few months ago, to go over the senior session. I like to do this with my seniors, so I can make a "blueprint" for their session to represent them and  be beyond fun! Gabby is a fellow roller derby girl. Which is totally awesome! It dawned on me that Rainbow Falls in Manitou Springs would be a perfect location for Gabby and her roller derby attire! I've always wanted to do a session here and I am so glad I got to go with Gabby! We also visted the Penny Arcade in downtown Manitou Springs for some more roller derby fun. Fun fact....roller skates aren't allowed at the Penny Arcade so we actually got into a little bit of trouble trying to get some shots with her in her skates. Feelings of getting in trouble for silly little things in high school came rushing back to me when Gabby and I were "getting a talking to". But, it still made me giggle sharing this moment with Gabby. All in all, the man who told us skates weren't allowed was nice enough to let Gabby keep her skates on so we could get the shot we wanted! Yay!  Here are some of my favorite shots from Gabby's senior session....Enjoy!

DIY Fall Flower Crown https://katethomasphotography.com/blog/2015/6/diy-fall-flower-crown---thrifty-thursdays In attempt to follow the advice of the lovely and wonderful Jasmine Star on becoming a better blogger for your business. I am starting Thrifty Thursdays! Be on the lookout for crafty projects, thrift store finds, Annie Sloan antiques and other fun thrifty things! To kick off my Thrifty Thursdays here is a DIY fall flower crown tutorial in preparation for my favorite season....

Okay, I am going to be honest with you. I don't know if I am the best person to give you a step by step guide to make a DIY flower crown. I am someone who starts out doing all the right steps and instructions, but then I get bored with a step or two and skip...then add in my own flare....then mess up....use too much hot glue and then I squint my eyes so its looks better! ( If this sounds like you...you have found the right DIY flower crown tutorial!) To my surprise the flower crown actually turned out pretty darn good for my first one! So here is how it went....

Things you need:

  • Floral Wire
  • Floral Tape
  • Wire Cutter
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Pretty Flowers of your choice (Real or Not I used some lovely not real flowers from Hobby Lobby for this one) 
  • And of course some jams while your work! Spotify Playlist: The Perfect Crafternoon (yes this is a real playlist!)

Kandid Kate Photography

 

I got these items from Hobby Lobby and of course used the awesome 40% Coupon for the highest priced item.

The first thing you want to do is use your wire cutter to cut off the ends of the flowers or leaves you want to use. Leave a little bit of stem to glue to the crown (you can cut the stems off later).

Next take the floral wire and wrap the wire 2 times around your head how you would like to fit. Then wrap the wire around each other in some spots and then use the floral tape around a few places to reinforce it. (Stretch the floral tape while wrapping it to make it more tacky to stick to the wire)

Kandid Kate Photography

The floral wire I used was pretty thin...there might be a thicker option that would be better for this...but I ended up just wrapping these cool little guys all the way around the crown to make it thicker. 

Kandid Kate Photography

Next you need to plan what you want your flower crown to look like. This is about when I started squinting my eyes to make it look better ;)

Kandid Kate Photography

 

Then it's time to hot glue! I tend to get a little too excited with hot glue...but it's so fun and easy! Just be careful it your have a high temperature glue gun. I found that using the hot glue gun to glue the flower onto the wire worked well once the little twine flowers were on. But for the twine flowers I also used more floral tape on top of the glue to make sure they really stay on.

Kandid Kate Photography

Every few flowers or so I would try on the flower crown to make sure I was placing the flowers in places that looked well. (After the glue dries of course!) Once you think you have glued on all flowers and leaves on that you want, cut the ends of the stems that are sticking out. Annnd I think that's it?? I probably forgot something....and if I did I am sorry. Just let me know and I will add it in :)

Here is the final product! I love the fall colors I chose...getting me pumped for the leaves to change!

Kandid Kate Photography

Overall, I had a lot of fun using my creative side to make this! I did get a little frustrated at first when wrapping the twine flowers around the wire...but that's when I just started skipping steps and squinting ;) So feel free to skip around steps, add in your own steps, or just wing it! Whatever you do....just make sure you are enjoying yourself!. If anything you can always try it again if you don't like your first one.

Enjoy this awesome project and let me know how it goes!

Kate

P.S. If you want to use a flower crown for a wedding or photography session, just let me know! I had a blast making this and would love to put it to use in some photos :)

Samantha and Tim live in Cheyenne, WY and Golden, CO was the place we decided to meet. We found the cutest little park right in the heart of Golden called Clear Creek History Park. This park has is all! Mountain views,  rustic cabin backdrops, water, lush GREEN grass (hard to find in Colorado) and many other fun ingredients for a great engagement session! And I will say that having a couple like these two made the session that much sweeter. Samanantha and Tim were so comfortable behind the lens and the love and hapiness just poured out from them! Here are some of my favorite shots from their session....enjoy!

The happy couple got engaged at the top of the Manitou Incline, so of course we had to pay a visit there! The Incline is a famous place here in town know for its difficulty. It's an old railroad trail going up Pikes Peak. This trail goes up 2,000 feet in elevation in one mile and is about 3,000 steps! So pretty awesome engagement if you ask me. And no we didn't go all the way to the top for the session...now that would of been a workout! Check out some of my favorites of the precious high school sweethearts....

Jasmine Star Workshop // Kandid Kate Photography Colorado Springs Wedding Photographer https://katethomasphotography.com/blog/2015/2/jasmine-star-workshop---colorado-springs-wedding-photographer Words cannot explain the amazing experience I had at the Jasmine Star Workshop! But, as Jasmine Star would stress the importance of blogging...I am going to try to put this awesome day into words :)

Let me tell you guys, Jasmine Star is twenty times more amazing than her online presence! Everything about her is genuine, kind, fun, and passionate. After first meeting her, I told my husband that she is definatly my woman crush! She is so incredibly easy to be around and you want to be just like her! Her passion about photography shines through her teachings, work, and life. Because of this workshop, I feel inspired to take my photography business to the next level. Jasmine really encouraged each photographer to make their business their own. One of my favorite things about Jasmine her ability to make some of her weaknesses strengths in her business. She does this by thinking outside the box and as a result makes her business stand out from the rest and be uniquely hers. She stresses the importance of having a personal brand that reflects your true desire for photography and life. Your brand needs to shine through your website, your blog, social media posts, and of course your photos. Being more aware of my  personal brand forces me to create a business based on what I love. So how could I not be happy with my business if I am building a business brand I love?! We also learned how important it is to blog....blog....and blog! Ahhh, I know this is something I need to work on. Jasmine is so amazing at blogging! It is what has gotten her to where she is today. Check out her awesome blog here (warning you might get hooked and be there for awhile!)

One of my favorite parts of the day was when we got to shoot side by side with Jasmine. We got to photograph the beautiful Ashley and Kaya who were perfectly styled by some amazing vendors listed at the end of this post. And no, Ashley and Kaya are not professional models....they are just ridiculously good looking! Watching Jasmine pose and shoot this couple just like she would on a wedding day, was an experience I will not be able to get elsewhere. Learning about natural reflectors, camera settings, and getting the couple to look beautiful and natural are all things I cant wait to use at my next wedding! I just wish warm weather wedding season would come sooner! 

Here are some of my favorites from the beautiful styled shoot. Even during a harsh light midday shoot, Jasmine was able to walk us through how to get amazing photos of the couple and I couldn't be happier with the results :D

 

Jasmine in her element! 

I am loving the natural haze on this photo...Jasmine Star and I had an ongoing joke throughout the day about the California smoggy/foggy haze giving California photographers some awesome light to work with ;)  Hey, we get here in Colorado too, but only when there is a wildfire nearby ;)

Jasmine has a natural ability to make her clients feel at ease and comfortable when she shoots. Something I truly admire!

To sum things up...this experience was well with it! Not only was it in the beautiful southern California, but I got to spend the day with the fabulous photographer Jasmine Star, her awesome husband JD, and 18 other amazing photographers, falling in love with photography all over again! A day my photography heart will never forget :)

The Leton family had the idea of this awesome location located right at the foot of Mount Hermon Road in Monument. Even though it was chilly, I say the beautiful snowy location was well worth it. We even had some pretty snow flakes falling down on us towards the end of the session! Here are a few favorites from the session....oh and I you want to bring your own couch to the session, please do! I loved having it!

Alex & Nick's Fort Collin's Wedding // Colorado Springs Wedding Photographer https://katethomasphotography.com/blog/2014/11/alex-nick-wedding---fort-collins-wedding-photographer  

I have known the Bride's family for quite some time now and I had the privilege of sharing the special day with them at their daughter's beautiful wedding! I first met Alex and Nick together at their engagement session and thought...they just seem right for each other! This is my second wedding in Fort Collins and I have to say that I love this little college town! Everything about Alex and Nick's wedding had the essence of the downtown Fort Collins feel. First, we started the day at the historic Armstrong Hotel where the famous cat Oreo decided he likes shiny things so he made some of the detail shots interesting! Then we headed the the beautiful oval on the Colorado State University campus (GO RAMS!) for the formal photos. I am a sucker for huge beautiful trees so I LOVE this place! Then the ceremony was held inside Everyday Joe's Coffee House where it is lined in beautiful brick walls and was decorated with tons of awesome lights and candles to fill the place with a romantic atmosphere! Then we continued the party to the famous Rio Grande Restaurant to have some delicious Mexican cuisine and of course their famous margaritas! Everything about Alex and Nick's day was so magical filled with love and laughter by their closest family and friends. So happy to be apart of their day and I wish them the best of happiness in their marriage! Here are some of my favorites from their big day!

Rainah Class of 2015 Senior Session // Colorado Springs Senior Photographer https://katethomasphotography.com/blog/2014/11/rainah-2015-senior-session---colorado-springs-senior-photographer The creativity of this senior session was almost more excitement than I could bare! I love when clients want to step outside of the box because it stretches my creative ability as a photographer! So with that said, I just LOVED working with beautiful Rainah and her desire to be unquie and remembered through her senior shoot. I met with Rainah before our session at her favorite coffee shop,  Jives Coffee House in Old Colorado City. I wanted to get to know Rainah a little better before starting our session so we could create a shoot unique to her. She told me her dream job is to become a National Geographic Photographer.....WOW, what an awesome dream to have! Luckily I happen to have some old vintage National Geographic magazines that I found at a thrift store for 10 cents each. Some dating all the way back to 1918! So of course, I had to incorporate these into the shoot along with a vintage camera. We had a lot of fun with these props! Rainah also told me she loves books, mountains, and fall. I wanted to somehow capture all of these things for her so we visited the Old Colorado City Library, Bear Creek Park, and lastly Prospect Lake at Memorial Park for her very unquie, out of the box pictures! Rainah originally wanted to get into the water for the lake shots....but  even though we caught a nice warm day for November we found ice on the lake! Yikes! Luckily I brought a chair and my husbands fishing waders to allow Rainah to not be in the water and me stay nice and dry while I was in the water! All in all I think we had quite the successful shoot and we had lots of fun too! Here are some of my favorites from Rainah's Senior Session! Enjoy!

Jarecke Family // Colorado Springs Family Photographer https://katethomasphotography.com/blog/2014/10/jacere-family---colorado-springs-family-photographer Another adorable family during this holiday season! We met a the woodsy Fox Run Park that was freshly dusted in snow offering the perfect winter setting! I have said before that family sessions are always an adventure especially with younger children filled with energy. I usually like to tell my families that the first five minutes of a family session with small children is the best time to get a good family shot. This family was absolutely awesome for me! This session only lasted a total of 20 minutes! A new record for me! Thanks to the Jarecke's for being such wonderful parents to help my job easier....and of course having cute kids helps too! :) Here are a few favorites from the session....Enjoy!

Hogan Fall Family Session // Colorado Springs Family Photographer https://katethomasphotography.com/blog/2014/10/hogan-fall-family-session---colorado-springs-family-photographer Loved spending time with this adorable family taking some memorable photos! It's been awhile since I've a family session, but I was quickly reminded how much of a workout it can be! Little handsome Will was determined to be on the go most of the session, but luckily we will got some great shots of the family and of course little Will on the go :) And Rachel...she is just gonna be a heartbreaker when she grows up. How adorable is she?? And of course these two cute kids had to come for a beautiful couple! So glad the weather and colors of Bear Creek Park were perfect for us and I'm so glad the Hogan's came to me for a family session, because they certainly brighten up my portfolio! Here are some of my favorite shots from the session....

Kelli couldn't stop smiling and talking about how wonderful everything is around her. Not hard to say this couple is beautiful on the inside and out! Kelli & Evan got married at the beautiful Fort Collins Country Club with 56 of their closest friends and family. But, only have 56 guests at their wedding didn't stop them from getting down and having a party! I had so much fun capturing not only the crazy fun dancing but the entire day.

Jamie & Barry Sunrise Engagement // Mount Falcon Morrison, Colorado https://katethomasphotography.com/blog/2014/8/jamie-barry-engagement---sunrise-mount-falcon  I am not a morning person. AT ALL! Not sure if I ever will be...but I will get up early for certain special things and Jamie & Barry's engagement session was one of them!  There is something about the atmosphere of a morning that makes the golden light even more beautiful and intimate and it made my day to be able to spend this time capturing beautiful memories of Jamie and Barry. Jamie is originally from Denver, CO but moved out to San Diego for a job a few years ago. Jamie, wanting to meet new people, so she signed up for Match.com and went on a few unsuccessful dates until she finally met Barry. Barry on the other hand, got super lucky and met Jamie with his first date! I think it is so cool and romantic that Jamie and Barry were able to find one another through a dating site, not everyone can say the same. But, hey I am super glad it worked for them! I had so much fun hiking around Mount Falcon on Sunday morning with them to catch these awesome shots...and yes, I would wake up at 4:30 a.m. and drive to Morrison, Colorado all over again for these two! (but I am glad they are having a afternoon wedding that I will be shooting in October :) Here are some of my favorites from their session:

Michelle & Tyler // Garden of the God's Engagement https://katethomasphotography.com/blog/2014/8/michelle-tyler---garden-of-the-gods-engagement When I got an email from Michelle saying that her and her fiance Tyler want to make a trip out to Colorado from Nebraska I was beyond thrilled and excited for them! I wanted to be sure to take them to a location that screams COLORADO and all its beauty! So, I chose the beautiful and famous Garden of the Gods! Not only did this cute couple want a Colorado engagement session, but they also brought the best prop for some of the photos.... a motorcycle! I love when couples bring fun and meaningful things to sessions that can help show a little more about them and also allow me some space for unique creativity! I'm so excited the way Michelle & Tyler's engagement turned out, we could not of asked for better weather, scenery, and of course a good looking couple! Here are some of my favorites from their sweet engagement :)

Heather & Brad // Elbert, Colorado Wedding https://katethomasphotography.com/blog/2014/8/heather-brad-wedding          

           Heather & Brad's day was quite the adventure and I feel so blessed that I got to be apart of it! I arrived at their ceremony location in Elbert, Colorado without a cloud in the sky. However, anyone who knows Colorado should know that this can quickly change! While the bride's side was getting ready and beautiful, the clouds rolled in...and just in time for the ceremony the rain started. Even though the rain came in, the bride, groom, and all of their guest still enjoyed the beautiful ceremony in the rain. You can clearly see in the photos below that Heather & Brad still were so happy during the ceremony smiling in the rain! Here are some of my favorite shots from their day!

Britni & John Engagement https://katethomasphotography.com/blog/2014/5/britni-john-engagement Words cannot express how much fun I had with Britni & John at their engagement session! I have known John for a few years now through playing soccer together. John met Britni while they were both vacationing in Vegas! I think it's safe to say this isn't you typical Vegas vacation fling ;)

The weather started out cloudy, but then the sun came for us for a little bit, while ALSO sprinkling a light rain to make some AWESOME shots! So happy I got to photograph this good looking couple at this beautiful location! I cannot wait to attend their fall wedding at the Evergreen Lake House! :D Here are some of my favorites from their session!

Heather and Brad Engagement https://katethomasphotography.com/blog/2014/4/heather-and-brad-engagement Ahhhh.... a beautiful couple on a beautiful sunny spring afternoon! I had so much fun with Heather and Brad along the Santa Fe Trail. We had to reschedule a few times to try and get warm weather and sunshine for a spring feel, but I say it was worth the wait! I actually first met Heather while waiting in line at 6am for Colorado Springs first H&M to open! I know, we are super cool :) Then Heather & Brad randomly found me on Wedding Wire not knowing who I was and at our first meet Heather and I looked at each other like ", wait, don't I know you?"  Either way I am so glad to be working with this adorable couple and I am super stoked to be photographing their July wedding in Black Forest!

So, naturally it's the perfect place for their engagement photos!  It was a chilly and overcast session, but I love the way the photos turned out for a winter downtown atmosphere! Haley's son Russell even jumped in for a few family shots! Congrats to the happy couple soon to be wed in May!

Trisha and Nate Engagement https://katethomasphotography.com/blog/2014/1/trisha-and-nate-engagement  

I might be a little bias, but Trisha and Nate's engagement session has been one of my favorite sessions so far! The weather was beyond picturesque and the location was abundant with wildflowers! This was perfect for them, because Nate proposed to Trisha in Crested Butte, CO during the wildflower festival on a hike among the wildflowers!  I am so lucky to have these two as very good friends here in Colorado and I am so excited to be their photographer for the rest of their lives! Congrats Nate and Trisha!

Fall Favorites https://katethomasphotography.com/blog/2014/1/fall-favorites
Every year I try to make it up to the mountains with some friends to see the Aspen changing to their vibrant yellow! And every year I feel like the scenery get's more beautiful than the year before! We camped at an awesome campsite in Twin Lakes, CO, then headed to the famous and picturesque Maroon Bells in Aspen, CO! I am so thankful that I can take these trips to get away and enjoy God's beautiful and creative creation. I mean how cool is it that?! Here are some of my favorites from the trip!

You might notice there are more pictures of Tayla than Benyam, this is because Benyam is adopted from Ethiopia and hasn't quite gotten the love for snow yet! So, Benyam was a little cold. However, we still managed to get some super cute shots in the snow! Here are some of my favorite from the session!
