Last week we snuck in Jennifer and Stefan’s fall Evergreen engagement photos on one of the last warm days of the year. I’m not sure I could have more fun during an engagement session than I did with these two. Like myself, Jennifer and Stefan are both Colorado natives. We spent most of the afternoon talking about everything from how things have changed around here to our families.
I met them at Evergreen Lake where we spent the first part of the afternoon. It was a gorgeous, bluebird day and the lack of people around created a serene environment. Later on we drove a couple minutes up the road to Alderfer/Three Sister’s Park. This area is fantastic when the light is as good as it was for their session. I even convinced them to trek up to the top of Brother’s Lookout despite Jennifer “not knowing how much hiking was going to be involved.” When we reached the top just minutes before the sun disappeared behind the mountains we knew the journey was worth it. Without a cloud in the sky, the sunset offered up rich hues of orange, blue and purple.
It was dark by the time we finished so I’m glad I brought a headlamp and another LED light along to guide us down the mountain. I enjoyed capturing photos of these two but I enjoyed the conversation along the journey even more. It’s safe to say that I’m looking forward to their big day next June!
