Most of our Arapahoe Basin Wedding couples are adventurous, so when Blake & Lauren booked us for wedding photography, we figured we might be in for something more than just engagement photos. With both of them being avid backcountry skiers, they wanted do integrate a bit of that into their session. We decided to take it up another notch and integrate our machine for their engagements while backcountry skiing on Shrine Pass.
We met these two at the Vail Pass parking lot and then jumped into our tracked Honda Pioneer to make our way up Shrine Pass for a few turns in the deep powder and some engagement photos as an added bonus. These two strapped on their skins for a quick skin before we made our way through knee deep powder on the way down. It was shortly after this first ski that the snow became nuclear. Visibility was down to 50 feet, but we were loving every second of it. These two couldn’t wait to play and tackle each other in the fresh snow.
Their pup joined us for the session and had an absolute blast. She made her way up, down and all around as Blake & Lauren skied and toured. All in all, what a day for Blake & Lauren’s Engagements Backcountry Skiing on Shrine Pass. We’re thankful for our couples who want to take their adventure engagement session to the next level. Here are a few of our favorite photos from their engagements backcountry skiing on Shrine Pass. We cannot wait to see these two again for their wedding in 2024 at Arapahoe Basin in Summit County.
