Alamo Drafthouse brings out a crowd at Sloan’s Lake.

The Alamo Drafthouse, Denver gave a glimpse of the fun that is to come, to young and old, at Denver’s Sloan’s Lake. Pee-wee’s Big Adventure on a giant inflatable screen was the featured presentation on a beautifully warm Saturday evening. With anticipation of a new Drafthouse theater in the Colfax redevelopment, local families came out to experience the magic that Alamo creates. A photo-booth, face-painting, swag from local vendors and of course brats, dogs and beer were highlights for all.

Pre-show entertainment was provided by the Rock-A-Billy sounds of Jonny Barber and a Rhythm Razor. Jitter-bugging to songs of Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, The Everly Brothers and his trademark Elvis, dancing was a hit and culminated with a Pee-wee tribute “Dance-off” to Tequila. As darkness fell, the audience settled in for the fun and ridiculousness that the “Big Adventure” provides.

Proceeds from the event benefitted Girls Inc., which provides girls of Denver, the U.S. and Canada with life-changing experiences and solutions to the challenges they face.

DU Ski Team has a couple of Alpine World Championship Medalists!

I recently had the honor to photograph two FIS Alpine World Championship Medalists. Erik Read and Trevor Philip, both from Calgary, Alberta, are current members of the DU Pioneer Ski Team. Erik and Trevor competed for the Canadian Team that won the Silver Medal in the Team Championships in Vail, Colorado this past winter. Both athletes were great sports and did a super job working with me to get this shoot done successfully.

Winning a medal at the Wold Championships is a goal for many and an accomplishment realized by few. DU is very fortunate to have not only athletes of this caliber, but fine young men like these two in their program.

Marie James Dress Boutique…..A special place for a special girl.

Our young daughter has been asked to act as the flower girl in our niece’s wedding and she couldn’t be more excited. A first stop on this fantastic journey was to look for a dress and the ladies at Marie James Dress Boutique in Bonnie Brae created the perfect experience for this young lady. Marie James offers a wonderful selection of beautiful dresses for wedding parties coupled with service that is unmatched.

Needless to say Elsa ran the show. She tried on every dress that was even close to her size. Sally, of Marie James, and Katie, of Weddings by Couture Consulting, tirelessly offered options and support throughout the entire show. The shop was quite busy on this particular afternoon and the other customers could only stop and watch as Elsa modeled, twirled and tested each fantastic dress. It will be very difficult to choose but luckily that decision is not entirely ours. Fortunately we got loads of good pictures.

Thanks you ladies for a memorable day!
