      Sarah and Mike
      Garden of the Gods
      Colorado Springs
      August 7, 2010

      Sarah and Mike got married last weekend at First Congregational Church in downtown Colorado Springs. I was thrilled when they scheduled time to have their photos taken after the ceremony at the Garden of the Gods, and I love the results. They even included their dog and cat in the photos, so obviously I loved this wedding!

      Thanks, Sarah and Mike! I hope you’re loving Costa Rica as much as I did last week.

      I love the clouds in the sky shot! Gorgeous photograph!

      I have goose bumps….so beautiful

      Great wedding… I had a blast 🙂 I love that they brought their pets! The Garden of the Gods pics in particular are GORGEOUS!!

      Just incredible Charlotte…I love how you have so many moments and emotions combined with EPIC portraits of the bride and groom. It just makes me happy looking at your work. If I knew then what I know now, you would have been my wedding photographer without a doubt. Of course that was 12 years ago so you were probably only 13 or so. (;

      WOW — some of the most stunning wedding photos I have ever seen!! Obviously, the subject matter was stunning — the Garden of the Gods wasn’t bad either. Love including the 4-footed members of the family!!!!

      So beautiful!! So happy for you all. I love the photo of the smiling dog! Love the scenic shots… Blessings and peace,
      Kathy
