We spent the evening out in the cold wind and snow for this lovely shoot and we had no regrets. Even though our toes were frozen and we couldn’t feel out fingers, this session was one for the books.
Driving to the amazing rocky mountains was a great drive, despite the curves and patches of ice in the roads. The wind kicked in pretty good as we parked the car and got our gear down. I remember telling myself how much I was going to regret forgetting my gloves at home. We walked the 50 miles to the ideal spot to start shooting, ok I lie it was a block or so away but with the wind and cold, it felt like eternity. The snow was deep and our feet kept getting stuck as we walked. (note to self, get some snow shoes) All was worth it because the view on the other hand was a true winter wonderland!!
As we began to shoot, I fell in love with the couple. Their love was truly something the world will look up to. The way they looked at one another (even with frozen fingers), the way he held her hand and guided her… the way she lit up when he talked to her. These two surely made this session a dream to work with.
Elopements in Colorado are definitely worth it, if you love the backyard this state has to offer. Contact us if you’d love us to capture your day, it would be a blessing for us.
