Michael+Anya :: Married :: Denver, CO

Honestly, I don’t know where even to start. Bride, groom, bridal party, location, atmosphere…everything was just amazing. I felt so lucky just to be at the wedding, not even mentioning that I had privilege to capture moments of the most important day in Michael’s and Anya’s life.These guys were a bundle of fun to work with, with so much laughter, smiles, and positive energy on their wedding day, it created an amazing atmosphere to work in. What I can say…It was an amazing wedding and even more amazing couple!

I love your use of reflective surfaces! And that last shot is just so sweet

Abigail Winters - June 6, 2011 - 8:12 pm

Sensational imagery! I was hooked right from the first image where you managed to capture the true emotions of Michael and Anya with the added bonus of breathtaking imagery in the background. Nice!

Robert Speck - June 6, 2011 - 8:14 pm

Image 7 of the bride is absolutely beautiful. Wow!

Brianna Phelan - June 6, 2011 - 8:24 pm

I think you take some of the best ceremony shots I’ve seen. The one of the bride being handed over made me choked up and smile at the same time. And the exit – beautiful. Loved them 🙂

Shane O'Neill - June 9, 2011 - 11:10 am

really nice. Lovely use of flash.

Johnny Tran - June 10, 2011 - 11:04 am

I love image #1! The rest are great too.

Nancy Shaw - June 10, 2011 - 2:50 pm

I just love the shot of the bride entering the car — the lighting and reflection are super.

Yvonne Dunnington - June 14, 2011 - 2:20 pm

Oh my goodness — these are beautiful — the angles, the lighting and the vibrant colors.

runa - June 26, 2011 - 11:25 pm

Beautiful pics!!!Love the funny shots a lot!!I feel very happy to see them!!

Julis - June 27, 2011 - 8:05 pm

Image #10 is by far my very favorite … but I must tell you all of your imagery is beautiful, and it was a difficult selection.

Madeline Jutras - July 2, 2011 - 9:03 pm

Love Photo #6 … brilliant!

Alison Larman - July 5, 2011 - 1:28 pm

Tres beautiful work! Gorgeous shots and brilliant colors and use of lighting. The bride looks like a fashion model you would find in magazines.

Alexandria Kokostatis Images - July 15, 2011 - 7:25 pm

Image 10 is spectacular — such a true work of art (as are all the rest of your photos). Very, very, nice work.

Paula Lucas - July 26, 2011 - 8:51 am

You are correct — everything is AMAZING — especially your photography. Very, very nice!

A great couple from a great place in Greece choose me to capture their “Big Day”…

I enjoy that day like they did and that you can feel through my images…i hope 🙂

Rachel Tatem - June 6, 2011 - 12:48 pm

What a great job! I love the moments you captured!

Robert Speck - June 6, 2011 - 8:15 pm

My goodness — Greece is beautiful. That 1st image is spectacular!

Nancy Shaw - June 10, 2011 - 2:51 pm

I just the love the first photo … and all the others too.

Yvonne Dunnington - June 14, 2011 - 2:21 pm

That last image is absolutely stunning, as are all the rest of this beautiful series of photos.

Julis - June 27, 2011 - 8:06 pm

Your first image just knocked me off my feet … so I checked out all the others and they were wonderful too.

Alison Larman - July 5, 2011 - 1:29 pm

Nik, you have done it again. Your imagery is flawless and gorgeous.

Alexandria Kokostatis Images - July 15, 2011 - 7:26 pm

Wow, did you ever capture the true beauty and essence of Greece. That first image was a perfect beginning to a beautiful set of images. Thanks so much for sharing.

Paula Lucas - July 26, 2011 - 8:52 am

Amazing! That first image is spectacular!!


Paz and Renata kept it pretty simple. One celebrant, one witness (a complete stranger grabbed from her morning beach walk), one bride, one groom, an incredibly beautiful setting…..and one photographer (that’s me), doubling as second witness.

I hadn’t met Paz from Israel or his Brazilian fiance Renata before their wedding. Making my way from my little Aussie coastal dwelling an hour down the coast it really felt like three worlds colliding. My introduction was warmed with dutiful shots of well aged scotch from some likewise well aged egg cups – they did the job.

From our first moments onwards, the shots (photographic shots that is) tell a story of love and romance fused with a strong dash of Brazilian spirit and Israeli charm.

Dallas, the celebrant , our new found and very enthusiastic witness, and of course myself, all felt incredibly privileged to have played a small role in celebrating Paz and Renata’s South Coast Wedding.

Alexandria Kokostatis Images - July 15, 2011 - 7:29 pm

Absolutely beautiful wedding story. My two favorites are the beach shot #10, and wow the silhouette of the bride in #11 — I’m sure that is what angels really do look like.

Paula Lucas - July 26, 2011 - 8:53 am

Simple and elegant and fabulous shots!!
