Hi, I'm Tamera, a professional wedding, portrait and boudoir photographer in Colorado Springs. But this blog isn't about my professional work; no, it's a daily love note to my beautiful city, where I've lived for most of my life. I love it here and I hope you enjoy seeing Colorado Springs through my eyes and lens!

A view of historic Union Station in downtown Denver (or to be more precise, the LoDo), which has recently undergone a huge interior renovation project and is now bustling with restaurants, bars, shops, and a posh hotel on the upper level. It's still a train station, though, so if you want to travel by train from Denver, this is your starting point! I was there on Monday for a photo shoot. My clients wanted to have their engagement portraits done in and around the train station, because they were instrumental players in its renaissance. It was not the first time I've been called upon to do portraits there, but generally I just use the outside of the building as a backdrop. I haven't actually been inside the building since before the renovation. I was amazed at all the changes inside! So many people and so much to do! Of course I'll have to go back there when I'm not working, just to have a drink and explore the newness of it all.
The Union Station's landmark sign is even better by night, but alas our photo shoot took us farther away from the building as darkness fell, so I didn't get a nighttime shot of it for you. I'll get one next time!
