Mandy + Jack: Picnic Themed Engagement Session

Last Friday we had the pleasure of finally meeting Mandy & Jack for one of the funnest engagement sessions ever! Several years back we started dabbling in model and fashion photography and what we loved most was being able to tell a story and getting to use our creativity with this type of photography. So, when Mandy suggested a themed engagement session we were beyond excited to work out the details with them. Their idea was a Hamptons nautical/picnic theme. Pulling that off meant finding a setting that didn’t scream Colorado but could really be anywhere USA. We found the perfect location right here in Castle Rock that has areas of trees and tall grasses and then really cool sand bars with huge boulders. To say these two were easy to photograph is an understatement! They were so easy going and so much fun! Looking through the photos I don’t think anyone could guess it was Colorado in the middle of winter:-)We were hoping for a warm afternoon and fortunately besides the wind that kicked up midway through we lucked out with a really nice day. So excited to share these pics and couldn’t resist posting one of Jack’s awesome jumping skills. Cannot wait for their wedding this May and a big thank you to Cydney at Stiletto Events for recommending us!

Daniels Park Engagement Portraits: Christy + Matt

One of the reasons we always include an engagement session with every wedding is because it’s a great way to get comfortable in front of the camera and gives the couple a chance to see how we work before the big day. Having a camera follow you around all day can be a little intimidating for almost anyone- at least us NORMAL people (celebrities excluded). So, the engagement session is perfect practice. Christy & Matt weren’t too sure about this whole photo idea but their friend Michelle who also came along for the shoot (she’s like a 2nd mom to Christy) convinced them that one day they’ll look back and be glad they captured such an important time in their lives. I’m so glad she convinced them because they really are a beautiful couple and we got some amazing images of the two of them! Since Matt had to catch a flight back home later that evening we opted for a location that was closer and chose one of my favorite spots- Daniels Park. I always forget what a gorgeous view it is up there. We had a wonderful time photographing them that day and can’t wait for their wedding in September. A big thank you to Cydney of Stiletto Events for recommending us and excited to get to see what you have in store for planning their big day!!
