Denver Art Museum Wedding Photographer :: For the Love of Art

For the Love of Art

For several years now I have photographed the event Design After Dark (DAD). It is the main fund raising event for the Design Council for the Denver Art Museum.  The Design Council supports architecture and design in the Denver’s area…so not only do I get to photograph a cool event, I get to see some of my old friends from the architecture and design community! Win/Win!

Every year DAD is at a different up and coming location. This year they chose the McNicoles building off of Civic Center Park. The third floor has a great raw open space, perfect for the 600+ person guest list, but offers several smaller spaces so the event felt more intimate.

This year’s theme was Cirque…think old circus… so all of the art objects for auction had to be created around that central theme.  Here are a couple of my favorites: first Contortion (because of the steam warped wood) I loved the shadow created, I could totally see this in someone’s house. Hang it in a niche and spotlight it…very artistic accent.

And second: Illusion. I’m swooning over succulents right now, they are totally fashionable in the wedding industry. I loved the dainty balancing act of this piece.

Thank you Design Council for allowing me to be a part of this fabulous event. I love the energy of the evening, and the opportunity to be around so many artistic people!

MUCH LOVE!
