Happy One Year Anniversary to Kristen and Nick 7/28/12

July 28, 2013

Happy One Year Anniversary to Kristen and Nick. They were married a year ago at BrooksideGardens in Berthoud.

I love summer weddings when all the flowers are in bloom, the trees are green and the grass looks great. Everywhere I turn there is another photograph to be made better than the last one I just made. For me it is like photographing a model. Models knows exactly how to pose, hold their mouth and turn their head and by the end of a session with a professional model I truly believe I am a “Photo Genius”.Kristen1

Part of our coverage during a wedding is to capture the emotions of the day. I have not been the mother of the bride or groom but I can put myself in their place. I empathize with the parents on how this special day would feel. It signifies the end of something and the beginning of something else. This make me feel both happy and sad at the same time. I can relate to the expression happy tears.Kristen3 Kristen4

I couldn’t really hear what was being said but I think Kristen was negotiating with Nick who would do the dishes. If indeed Kristen was doing this she is a very smart bride. It is important to establish who does what before signing off on the deal.

After the ceremony ends I see the stress of the day leave the couple. It is gone from their faces and it is gone from their bodies. I can describe it visually as a giant sigh of relief. The stress is replaced with smiles, fun and happiness. Through my camera lens it really is visible to me. The smiles get bigger and everyone’s mood lightens. The nervous jitters and butterflies are gone, It’s A Party!. Like this photo of Nick he was getting a little rowdy with the champagne and his groomsmen watching and probably cheering his celebratory out burst.

Kristen’s uncle is Leonard Kiel DJ and owner of Colorado Sounds. Leonard is one of my favorite DJ’s. He always does a great job being the master of ceremonies/ crowd control/ getting the party going. He was in especially great form this particular evening.   I also enjoyed the purple up lighting he added to the reception area. The additional lights tied in with the color pallet of the wedding and added additional ambiance to the evening.Kristen6 Kristen7 Kristen8

 

I want to Thank Kristen and Nick for letting us be a part of their special day. Their are a fun couple with a great future ahead of them. 

There is a toast given at weddings which was made up by a very wise person. “May you love one another today the least amount on your wedding day.”

Flower Girl

July 23, 2013

One of my fondest memories as a young girl was being the flower girl at my cousin’s wedding. I think I was about six years old. The bride, whom I had just met, took me by the hand and said something like “do you want to see the basket you’ll be carrying?”. I was so excited that first of all she took notice of me and second I was important enough she wanted to show me the basket. She was so sweet and tried to help me feel comfortable with my up and coming duties of sprinkling the aisle with flower petals. I was an extremely shy kid so when I see little kids crying in the aisle at weddings in complete terror I always relate to them. I am surprised that I didn’t have a meltdown and go screaming down the aisle too.

On the day of the wedding my big brother / ring bearer was by my side. He had a few jobs to perform that day. One, carrying the rings on a slippery satin daisy pillow and most importantly to not lose them. If that wasn’t enough pressure for a eight year old boy, his second job was keeping his little sister from doing anything stupid. This was really his main job starting from the day I was born and for the record he has had a fifty fifty success rate. I manage to get down the aisle that day and I even sprinkled one or two flower pedals along the way.

My performance as the flower girl was a pale comparison to the flower girl in the red dress. I loved this flower girl. She had style, flair and pizzazz. She dipped her hand in the basket and came up with a handful of peddles. Then she threw them as high as she could into the air. Handful after handful filling the sky as she came down the aisle. The guests chuckled, the groom smiled and the whole atmosphere of the wedding was brightened by her enthusiasm . This little girl could give lessons on “how to be the best flower girl, Ever!”

I also loved bride who delegated the job of flower girl to her long hair Chihuahua. Instead of the dog carrying a basket of flower peddles, which might have been a little tough for the dog considering she was about eight pounds. The bride had attached flowers to a special harness. The ring bearer was in charge of walking her down the aisle and both were so cute I’ll never forget them.

One Year Ago NYC

July 19, 2013

A year ago I went to New York City with my mom, Ruth, and daughter, Ashley. Mom wanted to see the Ground Zero. I was the travel agent and Ashley was the navigator. I’m not sure we missed much. We saw where the towers had once stood, five cathedrals, took in a play “Book of Mormon”, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Times Square, Empire State Building, Space Shuttle, and ate our way from Harlem to Brooklyn. Here are a few photos from the trip.

July Ranch Wedding

July 12, 2013

Bill and I photographed a ranch wedding on Sunday.

The Two Bars Seven Ranch www.twobarssevenranch.com was established in the late 1800’s-even before Wyoming became a state. Located on both sides of the Colorado-Wyoming and about an hour from Fort Collins. The 3,000-acre working cattle ranch is adjacent to National Forest land and is one of the most scenic places for a wedding.

The entire wedding was relaxed away from the hustle bustle of Denver and has rolling hills different from EstesPark’s tall mountains.

It was fun photographing Olivia and Aaron they could not contain their happiness. They were the true example of the beaming bride and groom.

Canyon Concert Ballet Slideshow

April 11, 2011

When we’re not photographing weddings, Bill and I have been keeping busy photographing other types of events. Bill enjoys ballet and has been taking photographs for the Canyon Concert Ballet in Fort Collins, Colorado. The dancers are simply amazing and so graceful! Their fluid, yet controlled movements are quite impressive. Bill is quick with the camera and captures the dancers in motion. This type of photography keeps us on our toes so we’re better prepared to photograph those fleeting, memorable moments during wedding season. Take a look at the slide show below to see some of the photographs Bill has taken for Canyon Concert Ballet.

“Trash the Dress” Slideshow

September 21, 2010

Wedding season is still in full swing. We are the wedding photographers for 6 weddings in September and 4 in October. As busy as we are, we were fortunate enough to still find time to slip away to Steamboat, Colorado for a couple days. We returned over the weekend to photograph Heather & Jason’s wedding on Sunday at the Della Terra in Estes Park.

One of our other projects has been putting together Trace & Don’s “Trash the Dress” slideshow. The photographs for this slideshow were taken at the Brookside Gardens stream in Berthoud, Colorado. As you can see, it was a fun time.

At Sherri Barber Photography we can meet all your wedding photography needs, from formal portraits to candid photographs and slideshows. Contact Sherri Barber Photography in Northern Colorado to learn more about our wedding photography services.

Heather & Bryan’s Wedding in Northern Colorado

August 10, 2010

Heather and Bryan enjoyed a wonderful wedding at Della Terra in Estes Park the last Saturday of July. This secluded Northern Colorado venue is known for its gorgeous mountain views. Below is a slide show of photographs from Heather and Bryan’s wedding. A light rain stopped just before we began taking the photos. As you will see, Heather’s smile and enthusiasm is contagious. We just loved being a part of their day.
