Jasmine + Perez: Castlewood Canyon Fashion Engagements

Well… our session with Jasmine + Perez turned out to be a bit more of an adventure than any of us expected. The sun hid behind the ridge at Castlewood Canyon leaving us in the dark well before sunset and way before we had planned. But we got some amazing pictures that first night before it got completely dark and they were so sweet to come back the next day to finish their session. We actually met Jasmine a few years back when she came along for her sister Joann’s model pics (one of my very favorite sessions EVER) so when she contacted us for engagement pictures we were so excited to get to work with her this time and meet her fiancรฉ Perez. It was also nice getting to see her family again when they joined us the first night. We had so much fun getting to take these. Typically we photograph engagements with natural light only but they wanted something a bit different so our aim was to do more of a “fashion” themed engagement session using nothing but studio lighting. It takes a bit more time but they were so patient and I think the “look” we got in the end was well worth it! They were the perfect models ๐Ÿ™‚ Here’s some of our favorite pics from their session- so excited to share these!

Kristen + Tyler: Lair O’ the Bear Winter Engagements

We LOVE photographing engagement sessions! And as long as it’s not freezing out, winter can be a beautiful time of year for them. About a week ago we met up with Kristen and Tyler at Lair O’ the Bear in Idledale for their engagement session. This was the first time we’d gotten to photograph at that location in the winter and while it’s already a favorite spot of ours, it’s the perfect place this time of year. The snow along the half frozen river made for the most gorgeous backdrop! It’s pretty in the summer but doesn’t even compare to this! Kristen and Tyler are still in the midst of planning all their wedding details but wanted to start the process with an engagement session. They were referred to us by another local photographer, Kelsey Haffner, who takes the cutest baby & newborn pics ๐Ÿ™‚ We are so thankful she sent them our way! Kristen and Tyler were so much fun to work with. They weren’t afraid to climb in a tree or walk on the frozen river (even after Michelle partway broke through the ice). You can tell they have fun together and make a great couple! We got some great pictures of these two and are excited to share them. Kristen and Tyler we’re so happy we got to work with you and wish you guys all the best with your wedding!!

Meghan + Kellen: Lair O’ the Bear Engagements

A couple years back I reconnected with Meghan (after we went to high school together several years ago) to take some images of her for her band Murphy and the Claytones. We had so much fun taking those photos and so I was really excited when she contacted me to say she was getting married! When we met up to talk about the wedding details and meet her fiance Kellen I knew instantly we were going to have an awesome time taking photos for these two. Right off the bat it was as if I’d known Kellen for years. He’s hilarious and so easy going- I don’t think you could ever have a dull moment with him around! And he keeps Meghan laughing and smiling which is even cooler! They really wanted a “Colorado outdoors” look for the pictures (without a lot of hiking ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) so Lair O’ the Bear was the perfect choice. The colors and scenery were perfect up there since spring arrived just a bit late. Loved that we didn’t have to deal with any bugs either- although we did find a small gardner snake along the path when walking back from the open field. We had such a great time and could have photographed for hours with these two- so excited for their wedding less than a month away!ย
