Photo of the Day: Denver Christmas Lights

During our Thanksgiving trip to Denver last week, we went to the downtown lighting ceremony and walked around the nearby shops while admiring the Christmas lights. The Denver event is nothing like the Country Club Plaza lighting in Kansas City in terms of scale, beauty, and crowds, but I actually enjoyed the low-key evening. It was picture-perfect, don’t you think?

Photo of the Day: Moonlight Downtown

The moonrise Saturday evening was breathtaking, so my husband and I decided to pull over near downtown Kansas City so I could attempt to get a good photo. Unfortunately 1) the deep red colors of the moon had faded, and 2) I didn’t have my tripod with me. I had to up the ISO and widen the aperture – not ideal for night time photography – but I’m still pretty happy with this shot considering the circumstances. Check out yesterday’s moon photo if you missed it.

Photo of the Day: Presenting a Wedding Extravaganza

Saturday night we had the pleasure of attending a friend’s wedding at the historic Granada Theater. I’ve seen some awesome photos of weddings at theaters, and my  husband and I actually looked at theater for our own reception venue, but this is the first time I’ve ever attended a wedding at a theater. It was great! We sat at tables for the both the wedding and the reception. No long span of time between the two, no leaving so they can change the set-up from wedding to reception, no distant drive between venues. It was a beautiful wedding and I wish the couple nothing but the best.

Photo of the Day: Our Personal Fireworks Display

Fourth of July is the holiday of the year for my in-laws. I won’t even tell you how much they spend on fireworks. We always have a great time hanging out with family, eating too much, watching the kids shoot off small fireworks, and finishing the day with our own personal fireworks display. Here you can see four of the guys (my husband included) stepping back to watch a huge fountain they set off.
