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!

Traci emailed me to have a session done with her boyfriend, Charlie, and pup, Meadow. In the email she said to me,

My boyfriend & I would like to get some fun pictures of us with our dog. We want to capture how happy we all are :)”  

And happy doesn’t even begin to describe it. The joy from this session left even me feeling amazing the rest of the day. I had so much fun with these three in Evergreen, and I just could not get enough of Traci’s laugh! I think it speaks volumes to her relationship with Charlie and how wonderful they are together. Not to mention, Meadow was just adorable and probably the most well-behaved dog I have ever photographed.

Took a little break from all the weddings and had the amazing privilege to photograph the Gabel family. Breanne is a fantastic wedding planner that has become a great friend of mine (check out her website here), and I have loved watching her little family grow. Cash is 6 months here, and I cannot wait to do his one year session. He had me smiling the entire time! Happy little man!

Check out their maternity session as well.
