This engagement session was a first for me! We had to stop photographing mid session and schedule the second half for another date due to weather! For the first half of Candra and Manny's session, we headed up to the mountains because these two are huge hikers and lovers of the outdoors. It was a chilly day and when we made it to the lake, we discovered that we were socked in with fog. These two are so easy going though and they were up for the adventure. At one point Manny pointed out that there was a break in the fog and I yelled for us to run for it, the three of us took off laughing the whole way and I just love the photo of the two of them standing on the rock as the fog is slowly rolling back in behind them. After we photographed our last roll we had to call it because the rain turned into the wettest snow.

For the second half of their session we decided to stay in the foothills, Chautauqua to be precise. It's such an iconic backdrop and Boulder is where Candra and Manny met so it just seemed to make sense that we would incorporate that location into their photos since it's such an important place to them.

I don't think I've ever laughed more at a session than I did with Candra and Manny, they are funny and completely comfortable with each other. I think that's what shines through most when I look back at their photos and it's truly my favorite part about their images. I am so looking forward to their summer wedding next year with Calluna Events!

When Colleen and Tedd approached me about photographing their intimate wedding on the Oregon coast, I was so moved by their priorities for their day - to be surrounded by their closest and dearest while they committed to each other in their ceremony.

The day was so full of love! Colleen's friends helped forage flowers from the town to make her bouquet and Tedd's boutonnière, they walked into their ceremony together and surrounded by their closest of friends,  and their dear friend married them and sang a beautiful song to seal the exchanging of the vows.

It was a day simply about their love and it was perfect for that reason.
