About Gabriel Dupon
Gabriel Dupon is a photographer based in Northern Colorado that specializes in wedding and portrait photography
It is no coincidence that you found me, so welcome to GDP! As a proper introduction, I am Gabriel Dupon, a photographer based in the Northern Colorado area, specializing in portrait and wedding photography! Weirdly enough, I am known for capturing the Sprague Lake photo that is on the back of the new 2021 Colorado Drivers License. I primarily serve clients in Cheyenne, Wellington, Fort Collins, Windsor, and Loveland, however, I love adventure and I am available for travel to any location in the United States to serve you the best I can.
Throughout my entire life, I have always had this urge to want to pick up a camera, but always hesitated because I asked the question "why take a picture?" I didn't buy a camera until 2014 and that is when I realized how much love I had for the art of photography! Before starting to take pictures of people and events, I really enjoyed capturing landscapes, wildlife, architectures, or just about anything that I observed! In 2017, I had the opportunity to do my first event and began my journey doing portrait photography and created my website! Since then, my work has evolved into what it is today as I continue to ask "why capture this?" every time I pickup my camera!
For a photographer to define their style is no easy task. However, if I could define my images based on how they look with three simple words, I would describe them as clean, organic, and fresh! My style has evolved and developed through the years, but here is a description of my style that I am happy with:
Nobody likes pictures that are messy, so whenever I take pictures, I aim for simplicity that is visually graceful without clutter. The clean part of my style is most noticeable with the traditional camera aware type portraits that I capture.
I like to take clean pictures, but I also strive to have a natural look with seamless composition of harmony. Capturing moments as they are while viewing them through my artist perspective results in organic images that could be considered stunning! Organic is essentially the word I use instead of photojournalism.
Beautiful light and youthful colors make my pictures stand out. The freshness of my images is what makes my pictures have a look of awe and have an appeal of wonder. My pictures are fresh because they are uniquely beautiful, yet familiar. Fresh is one of the ways I capture my photographs, but this is mostly how I edit and retouch them.
There is no limit with this visual medium, as I love to beautifully capture what I sees in this world and be able to inspire others in such a simple way. I was challenged by wanting to understand the meaning of photography, but I soon realized through all of my experience that it’s not just about capturing physical beauty, but the beauty of who we are as people from the inside out.
Essentially, I love to capture moments. And not just any type of moment, I love to capture precious moments! I enjoy being able to capture that moment when everyone is having a good time getting ready; its exciting to see the kiss at the end of the ceremony; its amazing being able to capture a portrait of the bride and groom looking their best; and I love seeing everyone bonding together as a new life begins together!
Whatever it may be, photography is special because you are able to capture visually emotional moments! What is there not to love with that? If you haven't already, I encourage you to read my artistic philosophy page where I describe what I believe is the meaning of photography.
As a photographer, pleasing my clients with the best effort is my greatest reward when capturing precious moments. I believe that is the true beauty of being a professional photographer. Being able to show up to a wedding and capture all of the fun, intimacy, and exciting action throughout the day is such a blessing and I can't wait to do the same for you!
If you're considering me as your photographer for your special day, I encourage you to explore my website and reach out to me with any questions that you may have! I hope you have a wonderful and fantastic day!
