Nicole and Chad were a blast to work with. I did an engagement session with them a few months earlier, which was unfortunately interrupted by the police. While the day of their wedding was not free from drama, it was without exception the very best kind.

I’d photographed a wedding at the History Center Colorado before, and I was looking forward to working in the giant atrium where the ceremony was to be held, and the fantastic terrace with views of downtown Denver and the Art hotel across the street, which is where they got ready. Despite the grand setting and the groom’s attire of a white smoking jacket, the whole day had a very relaxed, easy vibe.
