Engagement SessionMolly + PatrickSanta Monica, California

Molly + Patrick live in Santa Monica and wanted their engagement session to reflect their lives at the moment, so we met up a few blocks from where they live and walked around, laughter and I might of drank a little too much coffee. About 30 minutes in a super thick marine layer rolled in over the town, completely covering the beach.  But instead of worrying about losing the blue ocean in the background, it felt like we scored! It was like something out of the movies…romantic, moody and we had the whole beach to ourselves!

Next month they get married at Big Daddy’s Antiques in LA and I’m sooooo looking forward to photographing and celebrating them!

Engagement SessionKiley + IsaacRMNP || Estes Park, Colorado

Back in January I met with Kiley + Isaac on a sunny, but windy day in Estes Park, Colorado for their engagement session! I loved getting to know them and crack bad jokes as I was trudging though 3 ft of snow to find the perfect spots!

They flew in from Texas to enjoy the snow and explore Rocky Mountain National Park! They are getting married this summer at my favorite venue in Colorado, Piney River Ranch (I cant wait!! ). Here are just a few of my favorites!

Santa Fe New Mexico Engagement Session – Desiree + Daniel

When Jay and I started dating, his brother, Daniel started dating Desiree around the same time. Even though Daniel doesn’t remember the first time they met, it was in the University of New Mexico dinning hall and they met though mutual friends (and food). I loved how Desire + Daniel fit together, and just knew it was a matter of time. Daniel contacted me last year about wanted to find a cool and unique way to propose to his girlfriend with me there to take photos, so we set up this elaborate idea that I needed a couple to model for me in New Mexico. So I slowly chatted about it on during Thanksgiving vacation when they were visiting us…and then a few weeks ago Jay and I flew down to New Mexico to make it a reality.  We started the day roaming around Santa Fe, and then drove up to Ghost Ranch to explore the grounds and “get photos for my website”. Dez had no idea she would be proposed to in just a few hours… 

Longmont Engagement Session – Taylor + Jon

I’ve been meaning to share this fun engagement session for some time! Taylor + Jon visited Colorado last month for the National Western Stock Show and we knew we needed to meet in person and have a fun little session before the wedding day! I learned a little about cattle, and loved photographing in Vickland Show Cattle in Longmont!

Jon + Taylor are getting married in Texas this May and I consider myself lucky to be the one to photograph it! Taylor is a fabulous photographer herself and her smiley personally totally shows up in her photography! 

Fort Collins Winter Couple Session – Dylan + Marc

As soon as snow hits the ground up here in Fort Collins, Colorado, my mind goes wild. Couples hiking the covered snow tops, warm mugs of coffee, blankets to keep warm, and brisk walks with the twinkling lights that always grace the trees. So I was really excited for the lovely couple session that was in the works. Dylan and Marc drove down from Boulder and we explored just a small part of Fort Collins. We started in Old Town Fort Collins, and spent the last few minutes of sunset on Coyote Ridge.

Andrea + Jason – Evergreen Alderfer Three Sisters Park Engagement Session – Evergreen, Colorado

Evergreen holds a special place in Andrea + Jason’s life, and especially the area around Alderfer/Three Sisters Park since it will be the new neighborhood they will call home. Plus, just look at that barn! I had to pull myself away just so we didn’t spend the whole afternoon there! So we spent the session joking, playing with Boone (Or Boon-Boon as I started calling him), and trying to stay warm on this amazing sunny Colorado winter day.

Later this Summer these guys will be tying the knot in Durango, Colorado — in a fun, weekend-long event! So excited to be making the trip up there for the wedding!
