Bonnie & Mike
We are a husband and wife team.
We got married in October 2019 at Sanitas Brewing in Boulder, CO. A train interrupted the very end of our ceremony and it was perfect. We love happy accidents and find humor in almost anything.
We are committed to providing a friendly, fun, and unique photography experience to clients of all classes, ethnicities, gender identities, abilities, and backgrounds.
No matter your experience or comfort in front of the camera, your time with us will result in art that you will be proud to show-off and display for decades to come.
Bonnie Photo is an independent photography studio located in Erie, Colorado. Bonnie Photo serves all of Colorado’s Front Range, focusing on the Denver-Boulder area.
Bonnie Photo specializes in outdoor, lifestyle portraits and also offers in-studio portraits with professional lighting.
PASSIONATE, PROFESSIONAL, INNOVATIVE
As a professional portrait photographer, my passion is helping you show your personality through beautiful photographs. I strive to make sure that you and your family’s passion and values shine through the portraits we create together.
I have grown to love and respect portrait photography more and more as an art form the more I get into it. I decided to turn this passion into Bonnie Photo to bring my joy and skills to others. I love building connections with clients and business partners. These connections allow me to create more honest and meaningful portraits.
Researching and and trying out all the latest photography gadgets and techniques is one of my favorite activities!
I was a Girl Scout for 10 years. Community service and protecting the environment are very important to me.
A PERSONAL HISTORY WITH CREATIVE IMAGERY
Even as a small child, my parents made sure to instill in me a love for viewing and creating art. This life-long immersion in the art world inspired me to pursue an art degree for part of my undergraduate career at Colorado State University (although I ended up with a BA in International Studies and a minor in history). As I sought a place to study history for my master’s degree, I made sure to find a place that would encourage and foster my artistic side. I traveled to Norwich, UK to get my MA in Modern European History at the University of East Anglia. I chose UEA for its dedication to the arts and the rigor of its slavic studies program. My coursework there focused on art and literature in the Soviet Union and I wrote my dissertation on Soviet Cinema. It was at this time that I bought my first DSLR camera because my point and shoot offered nowhere near the amount of artistic control I desired over my images.
Michael is associate photographer at Bonnie Photo. However, his most important roles are as Bonnie’s husband-extraordinaire and co-parent to their two strange dogs, Sylas and Rowena.
Mike is much more photogenic than Bonnie, which Bonnie is infinitely grateful for!
Mike’s skills include:
- Mechanical Engineering (his day-job)
- Making everyone around him feel comfortable and at-ease
- Making Bonnie laugh
