The Wedlake Photography team = Beth and Paul Wedlake. Paul is a commercial and editorial photographer. His degree in photojournalism makes him uniquely qualified to photograph documentary style weddings and his extensive knowledge of lighting is an asset to any portrait session. Beth’s education and background is in portraits and weddings. She spent several years assisting other photographers before opening her own wedding photography business in 1999. After becoming a mom and appreciating how quickly children grow she added newborn, baby, child and family portrait photography to her studio offerings.
Beth talks a little about her work:
Denver Wedding Photographer
Wedlake Photographic started exclusively as a wedding photography business. We have since expanded into family photography but weddings remain a passion of mine and a big part of what we do! I just love the days when I get to wake up and photograph a wedding! There are so many moments to capture and love all around. When Paul and I started doing weddings together in 1999 we wanted to photograph them in a “real” way. Wedding Photojournalism was just becoming popular – people wanted more than the posed, static images that were a standard for so long. We went crazy shooting tons of film (yes it was film back then) both black and white and color and trying different techniques such as photographing portions of the weddings in infrared. I love this, don’t you? I might have to bust out a film camera again soon!I included an album with every package and honed my design skills. Fast forward fourteen years later and we are still photographing documentary style weddings and implementing cool techniques to give our clients that something extra every time. We offer albums but also make sure each couple gets a full set of digital images for personal digital usage and printing!

This is why I do what I do. Paul took this photograph of me with my babies years ago and it’s one of my favorites because when I look at it somehow I remember how tired I was that morning – I had been up with my newborn all night. I remember how sweet my new baby’s head smelled and how small my lap seemed with two children. I love the expression on my sons face. He’s so loving with his hand on his new sister but also kindof looking at her like “uh …why is she here?”. This is what I love about photography, how it can transport you back to a moment in time.
If I can do that for my clients I know I am giving them a priceless gift! Later on they’ll have a chance to go back in time and remember THIS time in their lives. How their own baby’s head smelled so sweet! How small their children were as newborns, toddlers, elementary school kids, middle school tweens and before you know it, high school seniors!
