Ashlyn + Tyler: Winter Engagements at Mount Falcon

It’s always interesting to hear couple’s stories of how the met and Ashlyn & Tyler’s connection to Colorado definitely had us wondering. Both are Texas natives, currently living across the country, but are getting married in the Colorado mountains despite family & friends living elsewhere. We were curious why they decided to plan the wedding here (besides the fact that it is a beautiful location to get married) but it made perfect sense seeing as they met here while on a ski trip with friends. Apparently they instantly clicked when they met and that chemistry was definitely obvious throughout our session with them up at Mt Falcon. I almost felt like we should have been paying them for modeling rather than them paying us! It’s plain to see they are a gorgeous couple but they were also so much fun to work with. Most of the snow from our recent storm had melted down here in town so we were expecting nothing more than a little mud and some snow on the grass. We got a bit of a shock to find just how much snow was still up there. I think each of us had at least a handful of close calls almost falling while we slipped through the slushy snow. They were so great about it though and I think in the end the pictures were definitely worth the slushy hike. We can’t wait to photograph their wedding this coming summer especially since Cydney will be planning it- we know it will be awesome!

Katie + Felix Engagement Session at Mount Falcon: Denver Engagement Photography

There are so many beautiful mountain type settings in Colorado to photograph so when Katie asked me what my favorite location was it was a bit difficult to narrow it down. However, one location that definitely stuck in my mind was Mount Falcon after photographing there with Traci & Jeff just a month prior. We decided that would be the place to go and I’m so glad we did! The sunset that night was just beautiful and we couldn’t have been in a more perfect location to capture it! Katie & Felix are such a blast to be around! In fact, this was probably one of my longest engagement sessions we’ve ever done. I could have shot all night if Michelle didn’t stop me. Katie was so excited for the session that it was impossible to not catch her smiling at Felix the entire time. We actually hiked for a little over 2 miles that night for their session- yep a 2 mile hike on an engagement session. And they didn’t complain one bit! The funny thing is that I don’t think we even realized how far it was until we were most of the way back and the sun was starting to set. We got some amazing pictures of these two and we can’t wait for their wedding next summer to take more!
