Melanie & Mark ~ engaged!

colorado portrait wedding engagement session evergreen lake mountains autumnI am so in love with this engagement session! Melanie & Mark brought all kinds of awesome to their session, including their brand new puppy (who really is the most adorable dog in the world :) But what I truly love was how they personalized their session by donning their waders and grabbing their fly fishing gear! Oh yeah.. It was nothing short of amazing, and  I cannot wait for their Spruce Mountain Ranch wedding next year!colorado portrait wedding engagement session evergreen lake mountains with puppy bwrockin the waderscolorado wedding engagement session fly fishing mountain lake portraitcolorado wedding engagement session evergreen fly fishing mountain lake portraitcolorado wedding engagement session mountains portraitcolorado engagement session bride and groom laughterlove the reflection in the watercolorado wedding engagement session mountain lake bridge reflection evergreen portraitcolorado wedding engagement session mountains portrait dogcolorado mountain engagement session evergreen lake

Melissa & Kyle ~ engaged!

evergreen lake reflection colorado wedding engagement portraitMelissa and Kyle both share a love of the great outdoors, which made Evergreen Lake the perfect backdrop for their engagement session. From our very first phone call I knew I wanted to work with them – they are warm and down-to-earth, and SO much fun. They admitted to being somewhat reluctant subjects in front of the camera, which of course I took as my own personal challenge :) And they did great! I just love their connection to one and other – how they light up around each other, and how they laugh. Congratulations, you two, and I can’t wait for your Colorado mountain wedding at the Sonnenalp in Vail later this year. lake evergreen colorado mountain wedding engagement sessioncolorado mountain wedding engagement session portraitcolorado wedding engagement session portraitcolorado bluebird sky silhouette sun lake evergreen mountain engagement

Alice & Jeff are sweet and down-to-earth, and so much fun! We had perfect timing for their Evergreen engagement session – with glorious Colorado bluebird skies and everything laden with fresh snow thanks to our recent storm that dumped buckets. Gorgeous! Here are a few favorites from their recent snowy engagement session at the Evergreen Lake House – a winter wonderland.

I love how they make each other laughevergreen colorado snowy winter engagement portrait session

Colorado Wedding Photographer ~ Alissa’s Trash the Dress Portrait Session

colorado trash the dress

When Alissa contacted me regarding a Trash the Dress Session, I could barely contain my excitement.. You may remember their amazing wedding from last year: Colorado Wedding Photography slideshow. We got together last week at the Evergreen Lake House (the same site as her wedding reception) for a spectacular session. For those of you not familiar with the concept of ‘Trash the Dress’ the idea is this: it’s an opportunity to get amazing bridal portrait photographs without having to worry about the state of the dress. So the session can be as extreme as the client likes – and in Alissa’s case she was pretty determined to get wet. So after playing around with various props (love her red cowboy boots!) she ventured into the water.  I’ve been dying to post these, but since this was a surprise for her husband Josh, we’ve had to wait on the blog post until today, October 11th,  when they celebrate their first anniversary. So Happy Anniversary, Alissa and Josh! My warmest wishes to you both as you celebrate your first anniversary!

Alissa and Josh’s wedding

091.jpgHere’s my updated blog post of Josh and Alissa’s fabulous wedding – they were married last week at St Paul’s near the capital building in downtown Denver. After the ceremony we had the some time to roam around LoDo before heading up to the Evergreen Lake House for the reception. It was cold. And rainy. And we had an absolute blast! Alissa and Josh are so much fun to be around – their enthusiasm is infectious! They happily braved the elements to capture these shots..




When we arrived at the reception at the Evergreen Lake House that evening we were greeted with a herd of elk grazing by the front gate..052.jpg

Congratulations, you two – warmest wishes to you both!
