Jess and Ryan’s Romantic Rocky Mountain National Park Engagement

Jess and Ryan's Romantic Rocky Mountain National Park Engagement
Jess and Ryan told us they were planning a weekend get-away in Estes Park. They thought it would be a good time to schedule their PhotoDate, and we couldn't have agreed more. Wedding planning can be a lot of things but one thing it should be is romantic. It should be a time to look forward to the future and appreciate each other. Moreover it should be a time to apprec[...]

Big Sur Honeymoon Photography | Jackie and Jordan’s PhotoDate and Vow Exchange

Big Sur Honeymoon Photography | Jackie and Jordan's PhotoDate and Vow Exchange
Big Sur is the perfect place for a honeymoon. The views are unforgettable and the place seems to amplify love. As if Jordan and Jackie's love could possibly be amplified! A walk in the redwoods quiets the mind and waves crashing on rocks ignites the soul. However, it must be the cute sea otters surfing and playing that makes us never want to leave. We're grateful to J[...]

Raif and Linda's Red Rocks Engagement | Colorado Wedding Photographer
Raif and Linda met up with us last week for a little Red Rocks engagement fun. We had a blast exploring the park with them and got a work-out too since it seemed a popular day to visit thus requiring a hike from a far parking lot. I suppose it is true that we generally say working for a photo is worth the effort! It was a gorgeous day, the kind where it seems like a d[...]

Sarah and Erik's Kenosha Pass Engagement | Adventurous Mountain Biking PhotoDate
We were excited when we made the plan to meet Erik and Sarah at Kenosha Pass this pass weekend for their PhotoDate. After Erik suggested the location we were hooked, we knew the Aspens would be starting to change and that it would be the perfect setting for them to unwind in the midst of wedding planning. What we didn't know was that the weather would be perfect and t[...]

There's something about they way they look at each other wi[...]
