When first meeting our couples, we always ask for the backstory on how they met. For Marshall & Sarah, it all began in a classroom, deep in the engineering building at the University of Colorado in Boulder, CO. Soon after, they found themselves on the same dodge-ball team, on on the last game of the […]

Breckenridge Engagement Photography

Spring in the Rocky Mountains is as predictable as flipping a coin and hoping it lands on tails. Its either sunny and beautiful or a full on blizard. Fortunately for Mike & Stacey’s Spring Breckenridge Engagement session, we lucked out and got tails. Not only was there plenty of dramatic sunshine to work with, it […]

Chris & Maya’s Summit County Winter Engagement

Mar

We love us a Summit County Winter Engagement, this couple, and the job we do. If it weren’t for all three of those, these pictures wouldn’t exist. When Maya approached about shooting their session in the mountains, we were all for it. Nothing compliments beautiful people like these backgrounds do, but it also takes a […]

After moving to Colorado, Shane & Christin’s first hike in the Rocky Mountains just so happened to be at Brainard Lake, so shooting their engagement photos here seemed fitting. We took our time, stopping every hundred feet to snap some photos, but more so, to let these two play and laugh together. Upon reaching the […]

We find ourselves at Camp Hale several times a year and its quickly become one of our favorite venues, but all of our shoots have been weddings. Never an engagement… so when Dustin reached out, wanting to pop the question on top of a mountain, we quickly suggested a Nova Guides Snowmobile Tour for his […]

Feb
15th

While Summit County has seen record snowfall this winter, Denver has been relatively dry, which always makes it fun when couples want to capture their engagement photos in the mountains. The snow adds another element of adventure, but often results in cold feet with plenty of embracing to stay warm. Jon & Shannon absolutely killed […]

Every so often, we get beautiful snowfalls on not-so-cold winter days. This was not one of those days… but Nick & Lauren rocked their Breckenridge Winter Engagement from the beginning to the end.

Being so close to so many beautiful locations makes it hard to chose where exactly to shoot your engagement session, but Rocky Mountain National Park Engagements are something special. Its a drive, a hike, and often a little chilly, but its worth it. Trust us. Starting out at the beaver ponds, we found some beautiful […]

Ray & Hannah’s Boulder Flatiron Engagement

It’s fun being able to meet as many couples as we do, and always interesting to hear about how they met, where they are from and what they do. In the past few years, we’ve noticed a trend that more and more, our couples are from other states, but its not often we get to […]

We kicked off Calvin & Kaitlyn’s Boulder engagement session at Chautauqua Park, hiking in the warm fall weather we’ve been blessed with. During our walk up the path, we had to make for several breaks to catch our breath after laughing so hard at a few embarrassing stories. There was something about Calvin & Kaitlyn’s […]

One of the most iconic scenes in Colorado, The Maroon Bells are nothing short of extraordinary.

Logan likes climbing things & Lauren loves the fall, so a Golden Gate Canyon Engagement during peak Aspen change seemed like the perfect fit for these two.

Piney River Ranch is one of those venues that no one hardly knew five years ago, but is now one of Colorado’s top wedding venue locations. Having photographed one of their first few weddings some years ago, its always a pleasure to shoot again and again, which isn’t all that often considering their limited availability […]

The colors are in full bloom and we were trilled to kick off our busiest time of the year with Nick & Victoria’s fall Breckenridge engagement. Colorado always supplies some amazing backdrops, but when the aspen leaves start to change, it looks as if God busted out his paint brush. We decided to make the drive up […]
