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 married next summer at one of my favorite venues in all of Colorado, Arapahoe Basin, and I can’t wait.
