Elk Meadow Park Winter Engagement | Melissa & Jordan

Melissa and Jordan embrage during their Elk Meadow Park winter engagement session near Evergreen, Colorado

Last weekend I met Melissa and Jordan near her hometown of Evergreen for their Elk Meadow Park winter engagement. Despite the cold and windy conditions we had a blast tromping around in the snow before the sun fell behind the mountain. Jordan enjoys hunting this time of the year so he was accustomed to the chilly temperatures. It was a gorgeous area so I can see Melissa was keen to shoot in familiar surroundings. These two have an adorable connection together and once you spend some time with them you can see how… Read More »

Golden Gate Canyon State Park Engagement | Paige & Adam

Paige and Adam walk along Mule Deer Trail during their Golden Gate Canyon State Park engagement

Paige and Adam have been looking forward to the fall colors for their Golden Gate Canyon State Park engagement since I met with them earlier this year. We had another location picked out initially but the early season snow forced us to change dates and locations. It all worked out in the end because their session was full of screaming sunlight and yellow aspen trees. I shot another fall colors engagement in the park earlier this month but the trees had only begun to change. We met up at Cannonball Creek… Read More »

Jefferson Park Engagement | Angie & Chris

Chris and Angie embrace outside of Briar Common Brewery in the Jefferson Park neighborhood of Denver during their engagement photos

Chris and I had mutual friends in high school and we’re sure we had a beverage or two together at some point so it made sense to start their Jefferson Park engagement at a brewery. Angie and Chris live in the up and coming neighborhood which features a couple of great restaurants as well as Briar Common Brewery, where we started. We chatted over a couple of hoppy beers outside in the sunlight and it was so good that we almost ordered a second round. They live just down the street so… Read More »

Fall Golden Engagement | Coza & Joel

Joel and Coza share a moment together in a grove of aspen trees along Gap road in Golden Gate Canyon State Park during their fall Golden engagement

As fall approaches, it was still quite warm for Coza and Joel’s fall Golden engagement photos last week. The higher temperatures have prevented the trees at lower elevations from changing into all their gorgeous hues yet. We were determined to find some color for their session though because like myself, they’re also Colorado natives and fall colors are a great aspect of the state. They have a ton of fun together and are self proclaimed nerds like myself so we had a fantastic time during their session. Joel is so sweet to Coza and she… Read More »

Breckenridge fall colors engagement photos | Shabnam & Joseph

Shabnam and Joseph embrace on Boreas Pass road as twilight sets during their Breckenridge fall colors engagement photos

Shabnam and Joseph are some of the most intelligent, compassionate people that I have met in recent memory so I wanted to do something special for their session. They recently moved to Denver for medical residency and hadn’t had a chance to check out much of Colorado so they suggested that I choose a location. Since they hadn’t been to the mountains before and the leaves were changing I suggested we drive west to shoot their Breckenridge fall colors engagement photos. Boreas Pass is one of my favorite places to… Read More »

LoDo Denver Engagement Photos | Danielle & Jordan

Danielle and Jordan share a laugh while posing for their LoDo Denver engagement photos in August

Danielle and Jordan are two incredible human beings and extremely busy people so I was glad that we were able to schedule their LoDo Denver engagement photos during the 24-hours that Jordan was in town to help Danielle move. Danielle is finishing her PsyD and Jordan is a medical resident in Chicago so they spend most of their time helping others. I spent a little extra time with them hitting some of their favorite locations downtown on Thursday evening. I’ve shot downtown Denver engagement photos before so I have a good sense of… Read More »

Georgetown and Loveland Pass Engagement Photos | Mallory and Daniel

Daniel kisses Mallory as the two embrace on top of Loveland pass as the sun sets near Keystone Colorado

Colorado is known for breathtaking views in the Rocky Mountains and the scenery didn’t disappoint for Mallory and Daniel’s Georgetown and Loveland Pass Engagement Photos earlier this week. Daniel actually proposed to Mallory after one of her piano concerts near the Georgetown Loop Railroad so I was excited to photograph them in a location that meant a lot to both of them. I truly believe that the more meaningful the location for an engagement session, the better the images can be. I typically start things off at a bar so everyone can… Read More »

Royal Oak Engagement Photos | Erica & Cody

Cody embraces Erica during their colorful summertime Michigan engagement session in downtown Royal Oak

Last week I was in Michigan to photograph a wedding in the Detroit area with Travis and while I was there we met up with his brother Cody and future sister-in-law Erica for their Royal Oak engagement photos. Next spring Travis will be part of their big day, but on the opposite side of the camera as the best man. I on the other hand will be photographing the wedding. I always encourage couples to shoot engagement photos with me so that they can become comfortable in front of the… Read More »
