Colorado Engagement Photos

I think engagement sessions are more important that what the common name would make you believe. It's not about the engagement. It's about the two of you. Let's do something really fun and personify you both as a couple before you get married.

There really is no limit. Love skydiving — lets do it. 4 Wheeling — Done. Speed Knitting — a first for me, but count me in! If it's YOU, let's shoot it.

All of my wedding collections have the option of an engagement photo session.

How to prepare for your
engagement session?

It's pretty simple. First just be yourself. You don't need to study poses on pinterest. No practicing in the mirror. I will let you know when something looks weird and doesn't fit.

You want to bring outfit changes? SURE! But keep in mind the sun waits for no one. Typically sessions are about 2ish hours and we start about 30 ish minutes before awesome lighttime. So make it snappy.

Should we bring props? SURE! Make sure they have meaning for you and not just you saw it on pinterest or instagram. Are you going think balloons are cute 10 years from now?

What do we wear? Anything besides all black. With all black it's hard to decern detail and you kinda look like floating heads. All white is kinda weird too.

I believe it is most important for you two to be comfortable. After all, it's not like you are used to being photographed every day. I have fun little games and ways to unwind and relax so you can be yourselves. I understand it can be stressful having your photo taken. It’s mainly because you aren’t sure what to do or what you look like. That's where I got you.

I’ll see the best light and you just be yourself. Have fun with your I’ll let you know if something looks weird. Stray hairs, you’re turned to far from camera, and guys with their hands. ; ) They just need something to do. And most times, they need to just hold you.

The best photos are when you aren't necessarily paying attention. Sure we get the shots for “grandma” that mimic a prom photo of you both staring mindlessly into the camera, but I want to get to ones with you doing your inside jokes, or nuzzling up close when no one is watching. Those are GOLD and the ones you will look and feel like yourself. That’s what I am aiming for. Like a wedding photojournalist capturing portraits with planned dramatic lighting.
