ann & jason. evergreen engagement photographer

i had so much fun meeting with ann and jason at dedisse park in evergreen for their engagement session, and i can’t wait for their wedding atop ajax mountain in aspen later this summer! photographing a wedding at the summit of aspen mountain on the wedding deck has been on my list of dream venues since we moved here, and i was also thrilled to find out ann will be getting ready at the little nell! i know their wedding day will be perfection!

i’ve actually known ann for a few years, since we met just months after david and i moved to colorado. oddly enough, we met at a make-up counter in the mall and hit it off right away, bonding over small things like both of us having family in iowa, and she had also lived in georgia while she was playing for the wnba. of course that led to conversations about our favorite foods, especially grits, that we have a hard time finding out here {as a related side-note, everyone should try the shrimp and grits at acorn, located in the source. they rival anything you’d find in the south!}. it’s funny how ann and i have bumped into each other from time to time since that day, and it’s also a testament to how denver is really such a big small town. for example, one afternoon i went to a photography get-together to learn more about shooting film, and ann just happened to be one of our models. then more recently, we ran into each other while trying to reserve venues at denver parks and rec – which is when i found out she was engaged to jason. at the time i was secretly wishing i’d get to photograph their wedding, so wishes do come true! ha!

dreaming of spring.

i know the snow falling today won’t last long, and the sun will be out soon. until then, I’m dreaming of the cherry blossoms in macon, georgia.

bryn and ben. echo lake engagement photographer

bryn and ben’s echo lake engagement session, near mount evans, couldn’t have been more perfect! there wasn’t a cloud in the sky, and the frozen lake was a great playground for us {and their goldendoodle, murphy}. we stayed a majority of the time on the frozen lake, and i was in love with how wide open everything was. with the big blue sky, evergreens, and mountains surrounding us, it really felt like the ultimate colorado engagement session!

while we were on the lake, we kept hearing strange whipping sounds, and i admit i never really got used to them. i did a little googling when i got home and found these recordings of what we heard, along with an explanation for why they were happening. so strange!

bryn and ben must have gotten shocked at least four times as they tried to kiss under this tree! then we decided it was time to move on…
