WARNING : CUTENESS OVERLOAD! Seriously though, Megan and John have to be some of the sweetest, cutest, and funniest people we’ve had the pleasure of working with. And come on, a little duck even joined in on the fun at their Evergreen Lake House engagement shoot this fall! Their adoration for each other shines in all of their lovely engagement photos and we are so excited to get to be with them on their engagement journey to marriage. A huge thanks to Creekside Cellars in Evergreen for letting us shoot at their winery. A huge thank you to Megan and John also, for having us be a part of this time with you two! You’re awesome!

There’s nothing quite like seeing one of your friends get engaged and then get to be a part of the entire wedding planning process! (You can view Trevor’s beautiful helicopter proposal HERE) Being a wedding planner and business owner herself (be sure view her work at Prive Events), Brittany knows what it takes to not only plan an incredible wedding, but also a beautiful engagement shoot. We were so excited when she and Trevor (and Henrick) wanted a fall engagement shoot in Golden. They showed up glowing and we we immediately became increasingly excited for their big wedding day this summer! Brittany and Trevor, we love you guys and are so honored and excited to be a part of this crazy beautiful journey with you!

Seriously? If we’re going to be working with you two, you need to stop being so dang cute! Thao and Alan ironically met at a wedding 5 years ago. Despite her best efforts to get him to ask for her number, Alan kept his rule of not getting a pretty lady’s number at his bud’s wedding. However, once the wedding night was over, the romance between these love birds began! We learned early on that Alan is quite a techy guy, while Thao admittedly is not. After not upgrading her phone some time, Thao was quite shocked and a little irritated when she got, what she thought was a new iPhone from Alan for Christmas. She was half expecting a proposal, not a new phone. Much to her surprise, she opened the iPhone box to find an engagement ring! We are so excited for these two and their awesome wedding day next summer! Thank you so much for having us be a part of this awesome journey with you two!

If ever there was a couple who deserved to be happily engaged, it’s Brittany and Trevor. Being a wedding planner herself, Brittany thrives off of marriage, love, and other people’s happiness. She’ll do absolutely anything for anyone without even thinking twice about her own interests. When Trevor called to tell me he was planning on proposing to the love of his life right after her 30th birthday and a surprise trip to Chicago, I was elated! Literally, I ran around the house squealing and giddy as a school girl knowing that Brittany was finally going to get to plan her own wedding with the man she loved!
After getting off a plane in Denver from her surprise birthday trip to Chicago, Trevor had plans to take Brittany on a helicopter ride from Broomfield to the Ken Caryl Manor House. Little did she know that the ride was going to end with her life changing! In the midst of the rain, Trevor got down on one knee and the soon-to-be bride started grinning ear-to-ear as she realized what he was doing. “I had a lot I was going to say, but all I could get out was ‘Will you marry me?'” Trevor said when we met up with them. Brittany said, “I had no idea! I thought it would be another year or two!”
Congratulations future Mr. & Mrs. Tolibas!
When Moriah and I met for coffee back in January, we immediately hit it off! With talk of weddings, proposals, Issac being a barista, and all things girly, we immediately knew we were going to be a good fit to work together during her and Issac’s wedding season. However, when she mentioned that they wanted to incorporate their motorcycle into their engagement photos, I wanted to high five her and jump up and down! Not only did I know it would be one of the coolest shoots we’ve ever shot, Mike and I also ride (not Harley, but whatever…) and there’s a common thread with motorcyclists. My instincts were right and Moriah and Issac’s stylized engagement shoot has been one of our favorites to date! You two are such an incredibly passionate and perfect couple and we are so stoked for your wedding (and totally wish the Harley could be there for it––maybe we can work on those logistics later!)

If any of our photos have ever expressed the characters in front of the camera, these would have to be them! Amy & Dave are one of the most endearing, loveable, and genuine couples I think we have ever met. Since our first coffee date a few months back, we knew they were an awesome couple. Myself being from the YoungLife family, I felt like I had an immediate connection with newly engaged couple, and their engagement shoot only reiterated that feeling!
Amy and Dave are one of the most fun loving couple we have the honor of working with and immediately put a new element of lightheartedness and goofiness into their engagement shoot (but they work with YL…I’m pretty sure there’s a pre-req for being fun loving and goofy!) They happily followed direction to our absurd requests like, “go jump off that bench.” They never questioned it, just asked “How high? Out of the camera frame?” They laughed at my dumb jokes and mirrored my and Mike’s overzealous excitement for awesome photos that were only SOOC (straight out of the camera). We are so thrilled to be working with you, future Donley’s, and feel so honored to be a part of this wonderful journey that you’re on!
Some people just make our job easy. Stephanie and Joe are those people. When we first met these two, they immediately displayed what a fun and incredible couple they were (you know, the type we all love). Their coolness in front of the camera and Stephanie’s constant giggles made for an awesome shoot at an awesome location (with awesome clouds and an awesome dog with an awesome lake that was just all around awesome). Steph and Joe have been together for 10 years…no, 12––well, there’s still a dispute about it, but they’re into the double digits––and are finally tying the knot this summer in Breckenridge! From hearing about Joe’s proposal to all of the moving they’ve been doing in the last few years, we had such a blast getting to know these two. At some points, I totally forgot we were there for a photo shoot and just kept talking their ears off. Stephanie and Joe, we are so excited for your big day and are so honored to be a part of it! Thanks for being a genuinely beautiful couple!
I honestly can’t believe we’re already booking 2015 weddings, but I’m sure glad we are! The main reason being is so we have lots of time to get to know the couples we’re working with. Having said, we are so excited and lucky to be working with Michelle and Aaron on their wonderful engagement and wedding journey! These two moved to Colorado from Washington just over a year ago and have since been planning their Rocky Mountain wedding. Their love for the outdoors, their pup, and living in the same town as me and Mike made them a shoe-in couple when we met with them a couple weeks ago for coffee. We’ve since had a blast getting to know them (and Apollo) and had such an awesome time during their engagement shoot! Michelle and Aaron, we are so excited for your big mountain wedding next summer! Thank you for having us go on this awesome journey with you!
If you were at Rocky Mountain National Park this past weekend and a gender confused construction worker smoking a paper cigarette and a sniper looking man dressed in camo, you were about to witness a proposal! Mike and I got to play dressup for this proposal for Alex and Nicole at RMNP this past weekend. After building a fake parks and recreation sign (which had all accurate information on it!), setting up our positions and waiting for a couple hours in an area with no cell service, we were amped and ready to shoot this proposal! Enjoy the photos!

We’ve been so blessed this upcoming year with some of the coolest couples. Seriously. I don’t know how we got so lucky, but we get to be apart of some of the best marriages coming up in Colorado (and Idaho and West Virginia) this year. Jessica and Jason are no exception! When Jess and I met for coffee a few months back, it was one of the most comfortable coffee dates I think I’ve ever been on. It totally felt like I was just chilling with an old friend, talking about wedding plans. I immediately knew I couldn’t wait for their big day this upcoming August. With their venue set at the Washington Park Boathouse, Jess began telling me of all their sentimental connection to the park and all the awesome plans they had for their wedding! After meeting Jess, I was pumped to meet Jason because I knew he had to be someone awesome to match her personality. And I was right, he’s awesome too.
During their engagement shoot, both J+J were so relaxed and were just having fun, the main goal at our engagement shoots! I once again forgot that we were working and started laughing at them interacting with each other and the hilarious things they were saying to make the other laugh. Mike and I are so excited about your upcoming wedding this summer you two! Thank you so much for having us go on this incredible engagement journey with you!
