Lexie + Jake | Adventure Session in Rocky Mountain National Park

Hiking in the mountains in the freezing cold with 20 MPH winds? Not stopping these two! Seriously though, I am beyond grateful for these brave souls. I have yet to see a couple this kind and flexible in the midst of crazy weather! We hiked up to Dream Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park, one of my absolute favorite hikes. On the trail, we passed people dressed head to tow in full winter gear; heavy coats, snow pants, and even snowshoes. Lexie and Jake wore these killer outfits, and kept a smile on their faces the whole time. It was so crazy and we laughed basically the whole time, mostly thinking, "What were we thinking?!". Now that I'm going through the photos, I know it was well worth it! I cannot thank these two enough for braving the elements with me, and creating a memory together. And I must add a shout out to my amazing and supportive husband for being my pack mule, and carrying all our extra clothing and gear around. Here’s to the unexpected, and learning not only how to roll with it, but how to laugh along the way!

Katherine + Michael | Adventure Session

One of my favorite sessions to date. You know you've found your kind of people when the night begins hiking and quoting Parks and Rec, and ends watching the sun sinking below the mountains. Katherine and Michael were a blast to work with, they are so sweet to each other! They even brought along their beagle, Donna, (yes, she's named after Donna Meagle from Parks and Rec), to share in our adventure. My husband was kind enough to come along and dog-sit during the moments we had Katherine and Michael alone. I’m so grateful for these two for adventuring me, and for evenings like these!

Laura + RJ | Engagement

I had a blast photographing Laura and RJ. We spent the day exploring downtown Littleton while they wore matching leather jackets, and ended the evening in the woods experimenting with smoke bombs. Such a fun day. Did I mention all of the laughter and dancing? It was a joy to work with such a fun and confident couple. I can't wait to help them celebrate their wedding day in the Spring! 

Emily + Josh | Engagement

We had a perfect evening enjoying the beauty of Garden of the Gods. I could go on and on about how sweet these two are together! They are gentle and caring. It's obvious they are both filled with joy to be starting this new adventure together, they could hardly stop laughing the entire time! It was my pleasure to capture them exploring together. Can't wait for their wedding day!
