Amber was one of the first photographers I met after moving to Colorado, and I’ve always been blown away by her talent. So it was one of the biggest compliments I’ve ever received as a photographer when she asked me to document her & Shayne’s love for each other and the mountains of Allenspark, Colorado.
Because her and Shayne have busy lives and schedules, it’s so important to them to spend time together in the outdoors. For their engagement session, they decided it’d be perfect to roam around one of their favorite hidden away areas, set up camp together, and share a beer while the sun set.
I can’t even describe how much fun I had on this shoot with them, despite my not-so-fun “morning” sickness. A&S are so laid back, goofy, genuine & engaging – essentially the definition of “my people”. Not to mention- my fiance and I had our first date and got engaged in Allenspark, so these views have an extremely special place in my heart.
After the shoot, being the amazing generous folks they are-they treated me to some delicious ‘za at Rock Creek Tavern & Pizzeria. The perfect end to a perfect evening.
I hope viewing these photos gives you all the fall-in-the-mountains feels like it does for me. Around this time (this year) I’ll be tying the knot less than 5 miles away from where these were taken! WOOT!
