Aahhhh… Colorado. This engagement session was during late summer/early fall when the days last forever and the sun turns everything into a golden brown color, like honey. What a marked difference the weather is from that day to today! This morning is full of crunchy snow underfoot and frosty breath… our kiddo’s bundled up like little marshmallow people. The best part is that regardless of the conditions out, the sun shines on. A gloomy day or two followed by glorious, glorious sun. This weather is one of the many reasons I love, love, love Colorado. Now, having grown up here, I may be biased, but I don’t care. It’s the best. Four distinct seasons, and none of them unbearable or harsh. Every time the weather changes I give a little cheer and plan our seasonal fun! Today, in the snow, squirt bottles of colored water to decorate the abundant (and quickly fleeting) canvas of white!
Gina and I just got home from a three day road trip. Yes, a road trip between snow storms across Eastern Colorado and through most of Kansas. We traveled to the home of Kansas University – Lawrence, Kansas. Jordan and Michelle invited us to see a KU Jayhawks basketball game – and we took them up on the offer. Having never attended a college basketball game before, apparently we went straight to the top. The passion and uncompromising unity of the fans was unforgettable (and quite loud!). The experience was incredible. Rock Chalk Jayhawks!
I shared this story – traveling quite a distance to do something fun together – as a lead in to Kim and Adam’s engagement session. They traveled over four hours for their engagement session in Denver. It was a perfect afternoon for sun-drenched goodness! There are times when we’re hired just for engagement pictures. Kim and Adam are getting married (and already chose a local wedding photographer) in 2012 and sought wedding photographers in Denver for their engagement session. We’re thrilled they chose us, drove three hundred miles in their half-ton truck, and spend the afternoon in the sun with us. It’s always such a privilege to capture a snapshop of a couple’s journey – if only for just an afternoon – and leave them with something timeless.
