August 9, 2008

I love couples with a sense of humor! Jean and Clint made an effort to show their guests a great time at the reception. Jean and Clint went to Duke University and lots of their friends from Sigma Chi traveled to Colorado to be there on Saturday. Their friends were thrilled when the DJ announced that it was time to go outside and play their favorite fraternity pastime — the craziness known to them as Beer Frisbee. I was thrilled, too, because silliness is so much fun to photograph!

Congratulations, Jean and Clint! It was a fantastic wedding, and I’m so glad I could be a part of it.

My friend and colleague, Holly Pacione, photographed this wedding with me. It was great to work with her again!


Jean and the ladies got ready at J. Gregory Salon.


Holly took this excellent photo of Clint getting ready at the Antlers Hilton.


Jean’s father had some impressive medals on his uniform!

The reception ended with a raucous game from their college days… something called Beer Frisbee!

They pummeled each other with the fastest frisbee throws I’d ever seen, all while holding beers in one hand.

What a sweet emotionally filled wedding! Beautiful! I love that he wrote and sang a song for her!

I love these shots– especially the sky in the last one you posted. Your photos catch all of the special moments throughout the whole day and not just the run-of-the-mill “couple exchanges rings, couple exits, couple eats cake” shots that everyone can get. Bravo!

Charlotte, these are FAB.

I also LOVE her dress! The moment with them in the limo is just so tender. Fantastic as usual!

Stunning couple! I have to say I love the one of Jean and her sister fixing her gown. The shadows are so playful!

My second favorite is the photo of Clint’s mother as he played a song to his new wife. Absolutely priceless. She looks SO proud!

And beer frisbee? I may have to try this myself….hahah!

Beautiful job as always, Charlotte. ๐Ÿ™‚
