ESTES PARK ENGAGEMENT | KELSEY + JAKE

An Estes Park Engagement Session by Rick & Stephanie:

Kelsey & Jake made the trip all the way from Houston, TX to have their engagement photos taken in one of the most beautiful places in all of Colorado… Estes Park. These two spent the afternoon with Rick & I exploring some of the most beautiful mountain scenery! We photographed at the always gorgeous Stanley Hotel, explored majestic mountain meadows and even had the pleasure of capturing their love among a held of wild elk! The love between these two just beams, capturing their connection was easy. We gave them their space and let the magic happen. Don’t let the photos fool you though, it wasn’t ALL easy.  It was a VERY chilly Rocky Mountain day for their session and Kelsey rocked that dress like a superstar, goosebumps and all! These two will be getting married this summer at the always stunning Della Terra Mountain Chateau also in Estes Park, CO. We absolutely love working with out of state couples who think The Rocky Mountains are so beautiful they just HAVE to say their I Do’s here! What is a blog post about an Estes Park engagement without some beautiful images? As always here are a few of our faves!estesparkengagementsessionestesparkengagementsessionestesparkengagementsessionestesparkengagementestesparkengagementestesparkengagementestesparkengagementestesparkengagementestesparkengagementestesparkengagementestesparkengagementestesparkengagement

ASHLEY + PEDRO | WEDDING ~ Tapestry House

Pedro and Ashley planned their Fort Collins wedding from Laramie, WY.  The night before their big day the weather was forecasting ‘snowpacolypse’ followed by ‘windmageddon’. There was much concern that the guests would be unable to make it to the wedding. What was forecasted as blizzarding snow turned out to be rain and the wedding pushed on as scheduled.  These two were married in the morning.  What’s the best perk of having a morning wedding?  You get to have the most awesome breakfast you’ve ever had as your official wedding meal.  Ashley had given us a heads up that her Dad might be a little emotional.   It was so touching though to see the way he teared up with so much love for his wonderful daughter!  The Tapestry House made the perfect backdrop for their nuptials. The vintage romantic feel went perfectly with Ashley’s beyond gorgeous dress and hair!

LEO | FAMILY ~ Fort Collins

We love shooting in Fort Collins City Park. What a beautiful spot for a family session. We had a great time exploring the park with Leo and his wonderful family. You may recognize this little gentleman as we have had the pleasure of documenting his entire childhood thus far. We have gotten to see him grow, see him crawl, see him walk and ESPECIALLY see him smile. You would be hard pressed to find a happier little one. Perhaps this is because his parents are just as happy and just as wonderful. Spring colors were out and about for their session and they fit perfectly with the cute family photo attire Elena selected for everyone. We even got to do some playing as Leo got some swing time in and showered us with giggles and smiles. It is so amazing for us, getting to work with little ones over and over and photograph them as they get bigger. Matt and Elena, thank you for inviting us into your world and sharing Leo with us for the morning. Until next time!

Here are a few adorable shots from Leo’s session…

PEREZ | FAMILY ~ Cheyenne

Meet The Perez Family, complete with the most adorable children ever, right?! They were SOOO good throughout the entire session as we literally walked all over the entire downtown of Cheyenne, WY;)It was fun darting down alleyways, searching out stoops and just delving into the rich culture that this Wyoming capital has to offer.  It was such a please meeting this sweet family. Not to mention the fact that this session had some VERY special timing.  Their session was photographed only weeks before Ronnie would be deploying for a year to Turkey. Being able to capture this images for their family, document their happy days leading up to his deployment and freeze these moments in time… THAT is why we do what we do. Ronnie you have an adorable family. They are without a doubt missing you like crazy! We will be praying for you, for your family and for those you are deployed with. We appreciate and thank you sincerely for your service to our great country.

As always here are a few of our favorites:
