Engagement near Copper Mountain | Caitlin & Gavin

Engagement near Copper Mountain | Caitlin & Gavin

The fall colors hung around this year long enough for Caitlin and Gavin’s engagement near Copper Mountain. As has become commonplace, I met them for a beer at Outer Range Brewing before we got started. I love sharing my favorite brewery with clients while we chat about some of the wedding details. After a quick stop along the Frisco bike path, we ventured over to Officers Gulch. We found some great light coming over the ridge but unfortunately the aspens along the hillside had already fallen for the year. Upper elevations had received some snow in the area so we made the drive up to Clinton Gulch Dam Reservoir. The light was incredible and there wasn’t a soul in sight. Caitlin and Gavin are getting…

Fall Engagement in Breckenridge | Diana & Eric

Fall Engagement in Breckenridge | Diana & Eric

Eric and Diana recently moved to Colorado from the east coast. For their fall engagement in Breckenridge I took them to one of the best locations for fall colors photos in all of Summit County, Boreas Pass. We enjoyed a beer in town before exploring all of the colorful aspen trees that line Boreas Pass Road. We chased the sun, unsuccessfully, twice up the mountain at the summit of the pass. I’m pretty sure all three of us are still catching our breath. Thankfully the views make up for the lack of oxygen at that altitude. Watching the sun set over the Tenmile Range is just one of the reasons that I love Breckenridge and Boreas Pass for engagement photos. They’re getting married at one…

Fall Telluride Engagement Photos | Anna & Cait

Fall Telluride Engagement Photos | Anna & Cait

Colorado was absolutely showing off for Anna and Cait’s fall Telluride engagement photos. The vibrant hues of the aspen trees were full of peak color throughout San Miguel County the week that we arrived for their session. Anna is one of my closest friends so I was honored when Cait and her asked me to photograph their engagement and wedding next year. We wanted to go beyond the typical session so we booked a rental in downtown Telluride and made the trek to one of the most beautiful mountain towns in all of Colorado. We explored all over Telluride, Mountain Village and even ventured out to Ophir and Trout Lake for a few images over the course of two afternoons. I’m glad that we had…

Colorado Small Mountain Town Engagement | Kelly & WIlly

Colorado Small Mountain Town Engagement | Kelly & WIlly

I’ve been wanting to photograph in Crested Butte for some time now. Capturing Kelly and Willy’s Colorado small mountain town engagement seemed like the perfect excuse for a trip to the area. Ever since I witnessed and documented their Valentine’s Day proposal in Denver I’ve been excited to work with them again. They have incredible energy and wonderful chemistry together that makes them a joy to photograph. We were lucky to be able to spend the night before in CB at a family friend’s mountain home. Kelly and Willy joined Amy and I where we enjoyed a few bottles of wine over a few hours of great conversation. The next morning we woke up to rain, sleet, snow and low fog. I didn’t think we…

Colorful engagement in Summit County | Jamie & Chad

Colorful engagement in Summit County | Jamie & Chad

It’s that time of the year that we’ve been waiting for. Jamie and Chad’s colorful engagement in Summit County was full of prime leaf peeping. I met up with them at Outer Range Brewing for a beer before getting started with their engagement photos. We stopped at several locations in and around Dillon Reservoir and Frisco over the course of a few hours. Everywhere we went, the golden hues of the trees were spectacular. They brought their dogs, Bailey and Bentley, along for the photos and Jamie’s brother Patrick was a big help keeping track of them. Travis even tagged along to hold a light for me. We had soft, overcast skies for most of the day before an vibrant sunset rolled in to end…

Sunset National Park Engagement | Beth & Riley

Sunset National Park Engagement | Beth & Riley

I recently met up with Beth and Riley who were in town visiting Estes Park. Riley proposed a short time ago so it was the perfect opportunity to capture their engagement photos while they were here. Naturally, we ventured into Rocky Mountain National Park in search of a few gorgeous locations. We made stops at a lush aspen grove and gorgeous waterfall before finishing the day in the meadow as the sun set behind the mountains. The wildfire smoke is never a welcome sight but it did highlight the different layers of the mountains in the valley. It was a pleasure to spend a few hours getting to know these two and making a few photos along the way.

Mountain Views Engagement in Boulder | Melanie and Colin

Mountain Views Engagement in Boulder | Melanie and Colin

I recently had the opportunity to capture Melanie and Colin’s mountain views engagement in Boulder. It’s been a while since we had a chance to connect so we grabbed a beer at Sanitas Brewing before getting started. We ironed out a few wedding details and they provided some great places to check out for an upcoming trip that Amy and I are taking. After a few laughs we made the drive up to Gross Reservoir to start their session. It’s been on my radar for a bit and I’m glad we could experience a new place together for a few photos. The blue sky and calm water made it a great place to check out. We even managed to find the first bits of fall…

Mountaintop proposal in Colorado | James & Laurie

Mountaintop proposal in Colorado | James & Laurie

Capturing this mountaintop proposal in Colorado was an absolute adrenaline rush. James contacted me a few months back as he was planning on proposing during their vacation here. Guanella Pass was the perfect location because it was easy to get to and has some spectacular views of the surrounding mountains. I spotted their car on the drive up so our timing was perfect. After they headed up the trail I snuck up the backside of the hill and hid behind a rock until James gave me a thumbs up. Thankfully Laurie never saw me as James got down on one knee. He asked, and of course, she said yes. She was completely surprised, again, when James pointed me out in the distance. We spent the…

Littleton Engagement | Kelsey & Colin

Littleton Engagement | Kelsey & Colin

It was great to finally meet up with Kelsey and Colin to chat about the wedding and capture photos during their Littleton engagement session. As with so many couples lately, this was the first time that I was able to meet them in person. It was fantastic to drink a beer together in the parking lot before we got going. While we were in the middle of an outfit change a guy came down the trail holding a live rattlesnake that was sunning on the trail. I’m appreciative of him moving the snake to a better location but don’t expect to see photos of that below because I didn’t want to encourage him to come say hi with said snake in hand. The area southeast…

Snowy Summit County Engagement | Nicole & Brad

Snowy Summit County Engagement | Nicole & Brad

Nicole and Brad recently travelled into town for a bit of planning for their wedding later this summer. While they were here I met up with them for a snowy Summit County engagement session. We started the day at Officers Gulch. It’s one of my favorite locations in the area but I hand’t photographed there in the winter. I absolutely loved Nicole’s colorful jacket. Not only did it perfectly match her personality but the color popped in the snow. We travelled over to the peninsula on Dillon Reservoir for a different view. The wind was howling so Brad gave Nicole his scarf to keep her warm. I noticed an old red barn that made for something different than everything that I captured all day. Finally…
