wendy and don wedding slideshow | colorado wedding photographer | sabphotography

and here is a little more of Wendy and Don’s Day..(just click the little arrow you see below their names atop the beautiful bouquet).  It was very warm despite the chilly temperatures.  It was totally difficult narrowing it down, there really are so many nice images.  But, I think you will agree these tell a bit of the story…Her details with the ice blue were stunning…  It was so awesome observing the fun and care between Wendy and her daughters getting dressed…  Wendy and Don both just smitten:<)  I just love being a part of Weddings.  It is such a gift!  A Happy Day, family and friends all round to share in the slice of bliss.  I think my fav part would have to be when the bride’s dress is just slipped on and she transforms from a young lady to a bride.  Or wait, the groom’s first sight of his bride…or maybe its when the parents are first seated…o no, its the vows, of course its the vows…hmmm what about the first kiss???

Nichole Van Professional Photography Workshops

Nichole Van asked me and other of her workshop participants to write a little review of her professional photography workshops.  And, let me be the first to say that I do highly recommend her without reservation.  I took her workshop almost 2 years ago  and still refer to the awesome, comprehensive book that came with the course.  We had a variety of  professional photographers there, from entry level to seasoned.  I felt like there was a lot to offer for everyone but it is particularly geared to entry level as marketing and branding is included.  I can’t even begin to list Nichole’s accolades, but she has made the cover of Rangefinder magazine and regularly speaks at professional conferences as WPPI.  Best of all, she is super sweet, very approachable, and lots of fun!  For me, though I have been photographing for over a decade, specific technical skills to portraiture were invaluable as well as neat photoshop tips and lighting discussions.  It also gave me the confidence to put my work out there and who knew it would be in a Disney film!  So, if you would like to learn to use off camera flash, use masking and textures in photoshop, price your work, shoot in manual and use your histogram for exposure, spot focus and get yourself some bokeh and dozens more GO to see Nichole!!! O and spending time with other photographers, shooting models and yummy food is included too:<)

wendy and don wedding | mancos, colorado wedding photographer | SABphotography

I had the pleasure of documenting Wendy and Don’s destination wedding in Mancos, Colorado New Year’s Eve.   I love a wedding this time of year.  Both because of the snow, and especially because its a grand way to start the New Year as husband and wife!   Wendy and Don are from California and braved a 9 degree  couple shoot!  Rad!!!  Here is a lil sneak peek into their day…


Mancos United Methodist Church, Mancos, Colorado    Perfect for a small, quaint, God filled ceremony.  Pastor Craig is excellent.

Mancos Community Center, Mancos, Colorado    Located in the heart of downtown with a beautiful, modern front foyer.

Wildwoods Fine Flowers The Brides’s beautiful bouquet

Alfred Angelo The Bride’s stunning gown

Jennifer Paschal and Chris Rasmussen  The talented musicians

Happy Holidays | SABphotography travel dates

Here is a little sneak peek at our Christmas card this year.  About this time every year, I deliberate doing a mail or email card.  Part of me wants to keep consistent with being green and do an email card.  Another part of me wants to keep consistent with my sentimentality as I save a card for each of the girls and have since their birth.  With this card, I have found the perfect marriage and makes me perfectly happy.  My Minted card is printed on recycled paper!  You too can order from Minted at

fun loving | durango family photographer | sabphotography

This was a really fun session on a pretty cool day.  When Charmin inquired about a family session I knew instantly it would be fun!!!  When I asked her if she felt outnumbered, her being the only girl in the family and all, she said “yea, but I wear the pants.”   Love it!  There were sooo many great ones it was hard to choose.  I love the couple in sunset and the boys with attitude…

Here is a little sneak peek for the holidays for you and your beautiful family…your CD is coming soon:<)  Thanks so much for choosing me!    xo ~SAB
