2013 is coming to an end so it’s time for my “Year in Review” blog.

It was one of the best years that I’ve had so far in Boulder, jam packed with jobs. People finally know that CakeKnife Photography is here! I’m grateful for the opportunity to shoot so many cool families, weddings, events, and pets.

It was hard to narrow down the best of the bunch, but this is what I ended up with. If you don’t see a shot from our shoot don’t be insulted. I chose images based on different things I had tried, personal photo challenges, and number of people. There were a lot of new things I had never shot or done before!

I’m really proud of what my team and I accomplished this year and hope that 2014 will be even better … with that said here are my final favorites.


I traveled back in time for the 1940’s ball at the Boulder Airport …

 2013 ended with the 1940’s Winter Ball event down in Denver. A perfect closing to a fabulous year.
