And take two! If you recall the last engagement session I posted for Kate & Chris, we were freezing and Kate had wet hair. Yes…it rained. Their session was one of many this year that I had to reshoot or reschedule due to Colorado’s bizarre about of rainfall we got this year. Here’s hoping that does not translate to snow come winter time, or we are going to be buried!!
Be sure to also check out Kate & Chris’ wedding as well!
This session was quite the adventure! We got a little hike in – me in sandals and jeans, Emily in a skirt, and Chris going barefoot opting to forego his dress shoes. Chris also was carrying not only a backpack with Emily’s shoes and a blanket in it, but also hangers with dress shirts and pants on them. There were times of “struggle” throughout the somewhat mild hike as we took the “shorter” route ;), but getting to St. Mary’s glacier in the end was well worth the work! I love when my couples take me to exciting, new places!
What was even more special about this session was that I’ve known Chris for almost five years now. We used to work together and also became good friends during that time. What was amazing for me though was that I have never seen Chris so full of emotion and well…happy. I just met Emily, but she has put a smile on his face that I have never seen before! And for that, this session meant the world to me! I can’t wait to photograph their wedding next summer at Red Rocks Amphitheater.
I know I said it before when I posted their rainy engagement session, but these two were just meant to come into my life. Since meeting them, I have found not only amazing clients, but wonderful friends. It was so amazing to capture their special day at the Three Trees Chapel – and how stunning does Kate look? I loved when she took her hair down and switched to this gorgeous flower behind her ear. Perfect way to relax at the reception.
Thank you Kate & Chris for being such wonderful and positive people in my life! I am so thankful to have met you both!
