Surprise winter weather was a nice touch for an engagement photography session in Manitou Springs, Colorado.
As you may have already seen from our sneak peek, we spent Saturday afternoon in Mantiou Springs shooting Jandee and Shane’s engagement photography session. We have never been to Manitou Springs so we had no idea what it would be like. As we were driving in, everyone (and I mean everyone) was wearing crazy hats, fishnet stockings, masks, feather boas and they were all dancing about… and we seriously thought the town was full of crazies. That is until we found out the town was hosting a throw-down Mardi Gras parade where everyone dressed up and had a good time. Manitou Springs is one of Jandee and Shane’s favorite places and we can see why. The town is quirky, fun-loving, and cute as can be.
We started off the afternoon with a glass of wine (Gina actually had a “wine-arita” – see, totally quirky) and then hit the town for some shots at the outdoor arcade. After Shane beat Jandee at an arcade game, we stopped off at the Rockledge Country Inn, their wedding venue, for a few photographs and a quick change of clothes! To finish up the session, we went to Garden of the Gods with their super-cute (well-behaved) dog, Wiley. Jandee and Shane were so easy to photograph and it made this engagement session a breeze. They were fun, laid-back, and totally loving on each other.
We are so excited to be working with Angie at Sapphire Celebrations for their Labor Day weekend wedding.
Engagement photography always provides an opportunity for us to get to know our clients in a deeper and more personal way. Our clients, on the other hand, experience the simplicity of our photographic style and how relaxed they can be with each other while being photographed.
