Despite their knack for innovative electro-pop witchcraft, "GRAMMY-nominated trio YACHT" isn't a phrase many of us expected to encounter in 2020. Yet there was Claire Evans, in a brief lull between songs on the Larimer Lounge stage, lithe and beaming, her eyes and voice proclaiming, "We're going to the GRAMMYs!"
Winter is a wonderful season for photography! We recently walked around the area surrounding our studio in Aurora's Stanley Marketplace

How can engagement photos get any sweeter? Kaeli and Sam sugar coated their engagement photos at Scrumptious, a local candy shop in Longmont, Colorado. After the sugar rush, we continued the fun at Cheese Importers, also located in Longmont. The locations were a perfect fit for the couple as the fun, authentic, and romantic sweet delicacies of the relationship are captured. A Sweet Story Coincidentally, the two met while Kaeli was babysitting for a neighbor. Sam just so happened to previously live in that same house where Kaeli was babysitting. Sam knocked on the front door to pick up old mail. As Kaeli opened the door she was in awe as the two locked eyes. Strangers face to face, but that first gaze was the spark of the luscious life that was promised ahead. It was destined to be as the two had family members that also knew each other. What a small world! Sam popped the question while on a romantic trip to Ireland showing us all that love at first sight is in fact real! Sweet & Savory Locations There are no boundaries when choosing locations to shoot your engagement photos. We love getting creative and finding new
