Featured Wedding Venue – South Broadway Christian Church

I’m going to break the rules a bit here and instead of highlighting a venue I’ve worked in this time I’m looking at a venue I’d love to work in. South Broadway Christian Church, located on the corner of Lincoln and Ellsworth that location will seem familiar to those who have been to my studio….

  • WOW! GORGEOUS church and what a terrific idea to do for a post. I was pondering what in the world I was going to do in the slow period these next couple of months. This is a terrific idea to keep posts coming. Of course, it wouldn’t mean a thing without truly beautiful photos and that is what you have here 🙂

  • WOW! What an amazing location to shoot in. Just gorgeous!

  • oh my goodness what a BEAUTIFUL church!!

  • Mark, thanks for the great comment you left me. Very sweet!

    This church is GORGEOUS!

    If you ever need a second shooter, I’d love it.

  • Love the curves and the organ pipes at the alter! A beautiful place for a wedding.

  • that is one really cool church

    I’m having my wedding at South Broadway on November 21, 2009. I haven’t found a photographer yet, and I’m interested in getting more details about the special you’re running (assuming you’re still available that day).

  • MARK – What beautiful photos of the interior of this place of worship & historic church building!
    This past Monday, I attended the memorial service of my little brother there.
    I had not been inside the building since the early 1980’s and was very pleased and impressed with the meticulous care that the congregation has shown for this Denver landmark.
    The recent renovation of “Ms Kimball”, the magnificent pipe organ, produced very meaningful and beautiful music for the memeorial service.
    You may wish to contact the Pastor, to work out arrangements for some of you interior photos to be placed on the church website: http://www.SouthBroadway.org.
    THANK YOU for providing a lasting memory of my little brother’s memorial

People and Animals

Last week I had the pleasure to work with my former employer and favorite non-profit, the Dumb Friends League.   A staple of the Denver animal welfare scene since 1910 the name of the League goes back to a time when dumb more commonly meant “cannot speak”, their motto being “Speaking for those who cannot…

  • A short from a stock series last summer. No matter what your political followings I find this transition of power, this most dramatic working of democracy in action, to be a profound and moving moment.

  • It was a profound day, wish I hadn’t been too busy to highlight it on my blog. I wanted to and then the day just slipped by while I was trying to experience it all and get work done at the same time!

    Great image too, btw.

  • Hey Mark, thanks for the comment! I love the picture at the top of the blog witht eh cookie! Very memorabale, is that you?

  • Mark

    Yes that’s yours truly. There’s something about a photographer, boredom, and remote cable release that lead to some strange self portraits.

  • Very beautiful shot, the lighting and details are so clear and vivid. This has to be one of the best stock photographs I’ve seen from you.

Through the Looking Glass

The shoot with Sara that I previewed in the previous post was also part of a theme shoot.  Sara wanted to do a “Through the Looking Glass” themed shoot.  Alice in Wonderland, but with a bit of a darker edge to it. There’s a park in Denver that is filled with “Wonderland” inspired statues so…

    Very nicely done! Love the words up in the clouds…very faint, but still noticeable as if they really are there in real life! Also love the first reflection shot! Very nice editing on those!

  • 3rd from the bottom is my fave! Cool idea!

  • Hey Mark –

    These are so magical and creative. I absolutely love the mirror images!

  • Love these photos. So creative.

  • Just found these pics on google. We are the Museum of Outdoor Arts in Englewood, CO, who owns the Alice in Wonderland sculptures. Loved seeing our sculptures in the pics. Good job. We are at http://www.moaonline.org, would love a reciprocal link. Nice photos!
