Is there anything better than connecting with a couple and instantly hitting it off? ShyAnn and Brett had me hooked from the second we talked. This sweet couple originally booked me for their wedding in Colorado – and I was so giddy. As soon as I was booked for their wedding day, I received an email from ShyAnn asking if I would come out to Colorado for their engagement photos as well. And let me tell you, I couldn’t have possibly responded quicker to her email. She sent me a list of possible locations, but we settled on Moraine Park in Rocky Mountain National Park for their adventurous engagement session.
Before I knew it, my assistant (AKA my sweet hubs) and I landed in Colorado to begin this incredible session. Marine Park was the perfect location to capture ShyAnn and Brett’s adventurous souls. We started the session in this beautiful, sprawling grassy field with the mountains in the background. The love between these two was just so evident, and made shooting a breeze. We found a little stream which made for the perfect playful photos. Speaking of playful, I am always down for a classic champagne spray. My favorite part of our day together was actually how the champagne popping came to be.
The sun was beginning to set behind the mountains when we were gearing up for the iconic champagne popping/spraying. We were in the middle of a road, with cars coming towards us, when Brett grabbed the champagne for the shot – I was not about to miss this shot! Although we might’ve stopped traffic, we took some incredible shots. We ended our session with an outfit change and some cold ones to truly capture the personalities of Brett and ShyAnn. After we wrapped up, we all went out for ice cream (if that’s not a dream ending to your engagement session, I don’t know what is).
Couples like ShyAnn and Brett remind me just how lucky I am to have this job. Connecting with sweet clients from half-way across the country warms my heart and fills my soul to the brim.
Thank you, my sweet friends, for letting me live out my dream.
