Welcome to Colorado Springs Daily Photo!

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!

Sacred Heart Catholic Church

This is Sacred Heart Church, located on the northeast corner of Colorado Avenue and 21st Street, on the city's west side. I have always loved its Mission style architecture, so austere and symmetrical. I know that it's quite old but I can't find any information as to when it was built, or anything about its history at all, actually. I can tell you that it's hard to get a good photo of its exterior! It's not set back from the road at all, so you have to stand across the street and wait for a break in the traffic to get a good shot at it. But it's worth the trouble! I think Sacred Heart one of the most interesting and beautiful churches in our city. (By the way the interior is equally lovely. I have photographed my share of weddings at Sacred Heart and it's always a treat.)

September 19, 2017 edit: I've just learned that it was established in 1922. That sounds about right.

It is a very beautiful church.

It's beautiful. It is an architectural style you won't see here.

I remember this church from my childhood (50 years ago!). This is a great shot - as you say, you really can't see the church from the sidewalk in front of it - you have to crane your neck way up.
