Fall engagement photo sessions in Colorado are a favorite of mine! Nothing beats heading to the mountains and enjoying the crisp air and beautiful colors. So when Hana and Doug told me they were wanting an engagement session when the leaves were at the peak colors I was thrilled! We watched the trees like hawks until they were perfect....then headed up to Morrison, Colorado and spent the afternoon hiking, chatting about everything and laughing way too much. It was a perfect way to spend the day. I am so excited for their wedding at Meadows at Marshdale in Evergreen Colorado this April!
Mark and Danielle had one of those wedding days where everything just flows. From the moment I got there until the moment I left, it was easy, joyful, and most importantly, fun. This is a true testament to who they are as a couple. Their goal was to have a party that happened to celebrate their marriage and they absolutely achieved that.
They picked The Barn at Raccoon Creek for their venue and it was perfect for them—a little bit rustic with the feel of the country but not too far from the city. Danielle picked gorgeous burgundy bridesmaid dresses and they fit in so well with the outdoor backdrop and fall weather!
These two have known each other since middle school! Their relationship was so comfortable, as if they had already spent a lifetime together. Mark spent all day making Danielle laugh (and me!) and I can't think of a better way to begin a life together.
My favorite part of the whole day was taking photos at sunset with them. They got to relax and spend a few minutes alone together. It was one of the first times they were truly alone all day and I could tell they enjoyed every second of it. But as soon as we got back to the reception, they were ready to get the party started! And once the dancing started, it didn't stop! It was a huge party all night long.
I hope the rest of their lives is as much fun as this day was—full of so many laughs too! I'm so grateful to have played a small part in it.
As many of you know I have split my websites into two - one for portraits and this one for weddings, engagements and elopements. I will be writing new content for this website, however, to get things started I am bringing over a few of my fave blogs from www.SilverSparrowPhoto.com. So I wanted to share one of my favorite winter engagement sessions. I have loved getting to know these two and am very excited to share these wonderful images once again!
I ask every couple a few questions to get to know them a bit better. When I heard how these two met I was nothing but smiles. It's such a sweet story! From the happy couple - We officially met our freshman year of high school in Mrs. Blaze's English class. After dating for a brief moment, we decided to just be friends. We had at least one class together each semester after that and stayed in the same friend group. After going onto college, we remained friends and grabbed lunch or coffee every time we were both back in town visiting family. Right before our senior year of college, we expressed our feelings for each other and have been dating ever since.
