Callie Riesling Photography - 2017 Highlight Reel

I am already a little bit behind sharing this as we are already into 2018, but 2017 was packed with incredible clients, awesome adventures and a lot of love. I haven't even been able to share 98% of the full blogs for these weddings which is just killing me! So for now, here are the highlights. And there are quite a few of them!


We had a very busy January that we started on a plane from Denver to Phoenix to visit some of our favorite clients! Justin and Pilar had an intimate wedding ceremony on 7/11/2016 in Denver where Justin was pitching for the Colorado Rockies. So of course we had to be there for their big wedding reception and their PREGNANCY announcement!

Immediately following our trip to the desert, we came home to our first publication of the year in Denver Life Weddings Magazine. It was a feature on advice for your engagement session and had a gorgeous full page of Josh Rutledge and Laura Mckeeman (Now Laura Rutledge)'s engagement session at Coors Field!

That same week, we also shot an amazing, private family moment for Colorado Rockies Pitcher Chad Qualls and his amazing wife Tara. Those images will remain private. Just 2 days later, we were braving the snowstorm at the Denver International Airport on our way down to the Gulf Coast for Kansas City Royals' Terrance Gore and his gorgeous bride Britney's waterfront wedding at the Sheraton Bay Point Resort in Panama City Beach, Florida!

In February we met up on a VERY chilly day with one of our summer wedding couples for a fun snowy engagement session! Colin and Allison snuggled up and braved the cold for some awesome winter engagements!

Although the snow and ice are beautiful in photos, I was excited to head down to Phoenix for a few sessions and an amazing desert wedding!

First we met up with some of our favorite clients for their spring family photos just down the road from their Spring Training home with the Royals in Surprise, Arizona.

We also did a fun couples session at the AL Champions home stadium in Goodyear with some awesome Indians fans - Melissa and Jerome! Nothing like a cold beer and a good ballgame under the warm Arizona spring sun!

We shot a romantic desert session in Scottsdale at the Phoenician with Shane and Bailey. As you can probably tell, I am a big fan of bougainvillea and saguaro.

And now, the amazing bride we flew down to photograph! Before the wedding, we headed out to the desert to photograph Sarah's bridal session! Isn't she GORGEOUS!?

The main event, what we flew down to Phoenix for... Josh and Sarah's wedding at the Secret Garden Event Center. Their
