Colorado Engagement Photos at Lost Gulch Overlook | Chautauqua Park in Boulder

aaaaaah, I am super excited to share the gorgeous photos of my friend and former roller derby teammate, Major Lil Pain (I guess I'll be boring and call her by her government name, Michelle, to keep things simple from here on out) and her fiancé, Jeff. We did these at the tail end of October up in Boulder when most of the fall color had disappeared. We did find a few little snippets of color but with the mountain views at Lost Gulch Overlook and the famous Flatiron Mountains of Chautauqua it really didn't matter that we had missed the autumn color. We made sure to time our session so that we'd be overlooking the city of Boulder right at dusk when the pretty light makes the sky turn a beautiful shade of purple and pink. And a big shout out to Michelle's mom, Karen, for tagging along to play pet-sitter when Jeff and Michelle's dog, Rudy, wasn't required for a photo. We started off at Chautauqua walking around the adorable neighborhood behind the Chautauqua Dining Hall and made sure to grab a handful of photos in front of the iconic Flatirons. We spent the majority of our session up at Lost Gulch scrambling around on the rocks and huge boulders over there to get the perfect mountain backdrops. You see, Michelle and Jeff are moving to Richmond for a career opportunity, so I wanted to make sure they get some awesome mountain pictures to help them remember the place they called home together during the first years of their relationship. Michelle is actually an Aurora native so it's going to be a big change for her going down to the South. I know they're both really excited for the big changes this next year will bring for them and I wish them nothing but the best!

Colorado Same-Sex Engagement Photography | Fall Color at Georgetown Guanella Pass

oday I get to show off the gorgeous engagement photos for Cody and her lady, Jess. Cody is another awesome human that I met while skating for the Rocky Mountain Rollergirls. I'm telling you, if you want to meet a bunch of really great friends the best thing you can do is go get involved with your local roller derby team. Sadly, she had to retire due to injury but she's keeping busy and going to school along with her partner Jess. They really love autumn and we made sure to time their engagement session so that we could get some great fall color for them. Guanella Pass just outside of Georgetown, CO has lots of pretty aspens and scenery. We made sure to leave a lot of extra time during this session for driving between locations and also because we weren't sure if we were going to hit any rainstorms. Luckily we had dry weather and we still ended up using the entire session due to all of the incredibly photogenic locations along Guanella Pass which is just one of Colorado's 26 Scenic and Historic Byways. I sure feel lucky that I get to photograph and explore this beautiful state with all of my clients! It was extra hard to narrow down for this preview because these two ladies are so cute together. Check out some of my favorites below.

Colorado LGBT Engagement Photography | Fall Color at Boulder Canyon

risten contacted me months ago to get her and Brittani on the calendar for their engagement photos. She was really excited to make sure to take advantage of getting some photos with the fall color that happens at the end of September. Unfortunately, when the day came it was during that week and a half or so when we were getting rained out almost every day! Luckily, our schedules lined up to move it just one day later and even though it was still a bit gray and overcast, there was no downpour to contend with. We were originally planning to hit up the South Mesa Trail which is usually one of my favorite places, but they've been doing construction there for the past couple of months so it's given me the opportunity to hit up some other locations that I've put on the backburner. Knowing that these two were really hoping for some fall color somewhere in the Boulder area I told them that the entrance to the Boulder Canyon Trailhead has some pretty great color. The last time I photographed there it was mid-October and the foliage was bright yellow. We were photographing a little earlier in the season and the leaves were just starting to change. So we got to take advantage of that beautiful time during fall when it's still halfway green with yellow starting to come in and little bits of red too. We definitely got to take advantage of a pretty lovely color palette that evening. I'm actually glad that South Mesa wasn't available because I had forgotten how pretty this area by Boulder Creek is even if you do have to watch out for bikers barreling through on the trail. Brittani works for the State Patrol and she and Kristen really wanted to do a few photos with her in her uniform. She looked really great dressed up with her badge and I found out that the style of hat that the State of Colorado uses is called a "Smokey Bear" campaign hat. These two look so great together and I had so much fun getting know them and their story during the session. They met during college playing softball back in Wisconsin. Now they're living in Colorado and getting married in Hawaii soon! Congratulations to this adorable happy couple!

Dog-Lover Mountain Engagement Photos | Historic Georgetown Colorado

met Tara when she started skating for the Rocky Mountain Rollergirls back in the day. I was so excited for her when she met Ryan because it seemed like they fell in love so quickly and I'd never seen her so happy before! They've built a very good life for themselves together in Denver these past few years and have quite a big family with 4 dogs. They really wanted to bring all four of them to their session since they are such a big part of their life. Our furry friends are family afterall! They are getting married this September and it was time to get their engagement photos done. At first they were considering doing them in the city in a neat urban area but after a lot of thought they decided that they were really more into nature and the mountains. So we headed up the I-70 corridor to the beautiful, very photogenic, and historic little city of Georgetown, Colorado. We started off near the dam and the lake before heading into town where we took full advantage of all of the old pretty storefronts and houses. Toward the end of the evening as the sun was setting we drove up Guanella Pass a little bit to find some more natural surroundings for their last photos. I absolutely love that we were able to get some classic Colorado photos for them next to the South Clear Creek mountain stream. Overall I'd say this session was a huge success! How could it not be with all of those sweet doggie faces?
