Britt + Jimmy · Engagement Session · Rifle & New Castle, Colorado

Okay I told y'all I was on a roll! This is my third blog post today and the 5th one this week, I think? If I don't play catch up now, I'll never get all the sessions uploaded that I want to share so I'm just hammering them out and sending out galleries while I'm writing the posts! I love checking off my to-do lists, haha.

So, this shoot is the engagement session of my friends Britt and Jimmy. I absolutely adore their fierce and wild love, and after you look through these photos I think that you will too.
I had been wanting to shoot an engagement session at Rifle Mountain Park in the ice caves for a long time, and who better to photograph there than a pair of ice climbers? Yes, ice climbers. These two are badass climbers no matter the season, I tried to go with them on a simple bouldering excursion once and I ended up getting a grade 3 sprain and tearing all the tendons in my ankle. So, I'm not a badass (no surprise here haha) but it makes me feel like one when I get to capture the love and adventures of these two.
After we wandered around Rifle Mountain Park a bit, we went back to New Castle for some golden hour photos. This session encapsulates the dynamic personality of our beautiful Roaring Fork Valley and Colorado in general. These two locations are only 30/40 minutes from each other and SO drastically different from the foliage to the landscape to the amount of snow.

I'm so appreciative of the couples who are willing to go out and shoot in the wintery conditions because these photos are MAGICAL!
So thank you to Britt and Jimmy for letting me capture your love, being so in love with each other, being such a fun couple to photograph, and for being unapologetically yourselves. I am thrilled to be shooting your wedding this July and to be celebrating your love through captured memories.

Scott + Kerri · Aspen & Basalt Colorado · Engagement Photographer

I'm on a roll right now with my blog posts! I want to make all of my shoots more accessible to my potential clients so that they can see what my work looks like as a whole instead of my favorites that I choose to put in my photography galleries. I just feel like there's a whole lot of value in doing blog posts by showing what an entire session with me looks like. So, I hope that y'all are enjoying seeing these!
Today I'm sharing engagement photos of Kerri and Scott that I took last month!
I met Kerri at an open mic poetry night at the A&M Theater back home in Florida about 6 or 7 years ago. My friends owned the venue at the time and I loved attending all the events and snapping lots of photos. I ended up taking some of Kerri, getting her info and tagging her on Facebook. We've remained friends online ever since and we both ended up moving to Colorado. When she and Scott got engaged she reached out to me about shooting their wedding! It warms my heart that she thought of me and I'm soooo incredibly excited to shoot this precious couple's wedding in October!

So for this session I met Kerri and Scott at the John Denver Sanctuary in Aspen to start. We walked around, took advantage of all the pretty trees, bridges, and pathways. They giggled their way through the beginning of the session and let me tell you, these two are the sweetest little lovebirds. I had a blast!
We had some daylight left once we finished up in Aspen so we headed down valley to Basalt and drove up the snowy road toward Mount Sopris. And I have to commend them for putting up with this overcast, evening chill air because it was pretty dang cold but totally worth it. I looooove the way these turned out with the views of the valley and Sopris towering in the background of some shots.
Hope that y'all love these like I do!
