A romantic engagement session in the mountain

Love + bravery + long white dress = epic and romantic engagement session in the mountain

Nick and Ashley look like they have lived their entire lives in Colorado. They embrace the hiking-rock climbing adventure seeking lifestyle that I have rarely seen in even the most outdoor loving couples I have worked with and yet….they are both from Louisiana ūüôā ¬†Ashley and Nick have chosen Colorado as the place to start their life together and our beautiful state is better off for it.

What I loved about this session was the ever-changing weather, which gave us a palette of light and colors that was uniquely Colorado. I also loved Ashley’s dress, graceful and easy to work with, Nick very dapper suit and the overall romantic-epic feel that stem from their mix of elegant outfits and rugged surrounding.

I can’t wait to shoot their wedding on August 25th in Estes Park!

Engagement Season is Here!

I love engagement season.  As I scroll through Facebook and see all of the wonderful engagement announcements that people post, I can feel their excitement and it gets my creative juices flowing.

Part of the reason that I love engagement sessions is because it really gives me the opportunity to work with a couple on a personal level, and really find what it is about their relationship that is unique and special to just them.

Over the course of my photography career, I have found that an engagement session is also a rehearsal for the wedding, and a chance to take more personal photos of the couple that they may not get to take on their wedding day.

Here are a few of my favorite engagement shots from sessions this past summer.

This particular shoot was one of my personal favorites, because I was in Paris with the couple for their wedding, and we picked a very special place for the engagement photography session that we knew we would not be able to get to on the wedding day.  It was a beautiful spot,  and the couple was able to truly be themselves without the nerves and anxiety of the wedding day.  It was a lovely day, and as you can see, the shots really captured the beauty of the place and the couple too.
